Defending Donald

Ever since the publication of his much-criticized article that suggests that the IDF murders Palestinians and harvest their organs, Donald Boström’s line of defense has been clear. He has not been making unfounded anti-Semitic statements — he’s merely been passing them on. As soon as the shit hit the fan, Boström hid behind the bereaved Palestinian family, and said that he didn’t have any evidence, but that he was just reporting what they told him. 

Now even this rather modest claim to veracity has come under doubt.

In an article in the Jerusalem Post, the family of Bilal Ahmed Ghanem is asked about the circumstances surrounding Bilal’s death and burial. To the Jerusalem Post, they say that 1) they don’t know if Bilal’s organs were harvested, 2) they never claimed that to be the case, and 3) they can’t recall having even spoken to Mr. Boström.

How embarrassing. Well, I’m sure that Mr. Boström has a good new line of defense ready. In the unlikely case that he doesn’t, please allow me to give him a few tips of lines that might work:

1) Someone has bribed the family to lie to the Jerusalem Post;

2) Someone has poisoned the well of the family with lie-serum;

3) Someone is threatening to infect the family with AIDS if they don’t deny the allegations.

If neither of those defenses appeal to him, Mr. Boström can always resort to pointing out that the Jerusalem Post is controlled by the Jews.
