A university professor and senior executive of one of the main Belgian unions wrote that Israel is poisoning Palestinians and killing their children for their organs.
Robrecht Vanderbeeken is Culture Secretary of the ACOD Trade Union and a Philosophy of Scientific Scholars with the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. His column, vehemently rejected by Israel, was published in August on the left-hand news site De Wereld Morning.
This week, the Inter-federal Center for Equal Opportunity, or UNIA, a state surveillance authority for racism, received a complaint against Vanderbeeken for his allegations by Wilfried Van Hoof, a reader who found the text anti-Semitic, the Jewish journal Joods Actueel reported ] on Thursday
The population of Gaza, which has a border with Israel and Egypt, is "starving, poisoned, and children abducted and murdered for their organs," Vanderbeeken wrote.
Following the complaint, De Wereld removed the part about organ harvesting on Thursday morning, but kept the claim of poisoning and death in case of starvation.
The newspaper published a 377-word correction titled "update" in which it explained why it had removed the allegation of organ harvesting. In the correction, the news side accuses Israel of "killing" and "kidnapping" Palestinian children, including the newspaper that was defined as a war crime.
It is also said that Israel is using organs of Palestinians who have killed its troops, but the editors and columnist decided "to suggest no causality between kidnapping and murdering children by the Israeli occupation army and removing organs for transplantation"  JPOST VIDEOS YOU COULD CARE:
Israel claims it does not arbitrarily kill Palestinians or any other population group and punishes violations of international law by its troops. Asked for evidence that Israel is poisoning Palestinians, the accused often refer to pesticides sprayed in Jewish settlements or foods spoiled by the time they have reached markets and tables in Gaza.
Aftonbladet sparked an angry response from Israeli officials and Jewish leaders with the publication of an unconfirmed report that Israeli troops had taken organs from Palestinians who died in custody. Israel strictly rejected the charge.
De Wereld van Morgen's correction did not address why it left the accusation that Israel was poisoning Palestinians unchanged. Critics of the often-said allegations by Palestinians and others against Israel claim that they and the organ theft reflect antisemitic motives and blood smears from the Middle Ages.
