Major Iranian News Outlets Publish Updated Antisemitic Blood Libel

Over the past two weeks, many Iranian websites have reproduced a long article accusing Jews of murdering gentile children in their synagogues, draining their blood and mixing it in their matzoh for Passover.

Perhaps the most prominent site was news site Alef, under the title “What group has been the biggest criminals in the history of mankind?”

The article includes the most grotesque artwork of Jews as murderers, both medieval and modern, including this one that they took from an antisemitic Arabic Facebook page:

Rubio Comes Out Swinging

US Senator Marco Rubio was cool as a cucumber, appropriately aggressive, and sharp as a tack in Thursday's Republican presidential debate. In...

It goes through many countries and lists every Jewish blood libel. It claims that the reason Jews were expelled from Spain was because of their habits of murdering Christian babies.

The article even reproduces a cover of Der Sturmer from 1939 showing the Nazi paper accusing Jews of ritual murder as evidence that it must be true!

(The article also includes a video of a 1989 Oprah interview of a mentally ill woman named “Rachel” who made bizarre claims that her Jewish family was part of a cult that sacrificed babies and who raped her on a Torah scroll in a synagogue, among other things. I spent a little time researching this, and I don’t want to have that story hijack this post, but from what I can gather all her “memories” had been prompted by a highly unethical therapist when the idea of reconstructing repressed memories was very popular. None of her stories have ever been corroborated by anyone she knows. Interestingly, she has become a prominent if controversial advocate against sexual abuse of children since then.)

Beyond that, the article claims that rabbis mix human blood with wine and place it on the lips of the infant boy during circumcision. It claims that the Talmud says “Anyone who kills a non-Jew, his reward is in heaven.”

Other news sites that reproduced the article, verbatim,  include Mashregh NewsAsredenaHarfeakharKhabaristKhabarkhoonHabbe, and Ghatreh. From there it has spread to blogs and other secondary sites.

Most of the comments are virulently antisemitic as well.

Nothing gets published on Iranian websites without permission of the government, and this is a clear and conscious decision to promote Jew-hatred in Iran. Antisemitism is official Iranian policy.

Westerners who had guided tours of Iran and then claim that Iran has no antisemitism, like Roger Cohen, are once again shown to be useful idiots.

    This blood libel was mentioned on a somewhat yearly basis in the neighborhood I grew up in. When I was around nine, I heard it again, but this time knew that no one was ever missing any children. All the kids in my town were always accounted for, so I wondered where all of these supposed sacrificed kids were from.

    Those who spread this kind of sewage are obviously ignorant about the targets of their hatred. Here is a heads-up for the cretins; we are forbidden from eating blood. Hamas tried to convince everybody that, during last summer’s defensive war, Tzahal was stealing Gazans’ bodies and using their blood for making matzot. If the blood libel were not so potentially deadly for us, we could just dismiss it as porcine fantasy.

    Scum.

    Islam is a disease and Muslims are the symptom.

  • Reform School

    Does anyone with a brain believe tyrants who speak Fartsy?
    Aren’t ‘Mashreg News’ the Fartsy words for ‘Meshuggener’? (You can’t make this stuff up!)

    The great irony of “It claims that the reason Jews were expelled from Spain was because of their habits of murdering Christian babies.” is that one of the real factors was that the Jews sided with the Muslims during the reconquista.

    Are the Iranians ignorant or just not interested in reality?

  • The JEWS Are Not The Enemy !!!
    They are GOD Loving ~ GOD Fearing People !!!

    I CANNOT Imagine Anyone, other than perhaps an Uneducated Person, Reading and Believing these LIES. The People Who Write & Print These LIES Are People Full of Hate for the JEWS. They are Full of HATE for People They Know Nothing About.

    How SAD !!!
    Forgive them LORD for they know not what HARM they do for Spreading LIES about Your
    People !!!
    When they DIE, they will NEVER be premited to Enter The Gates Of Heaven or Paradise, as They refer to.

    There Is Only One GOD and HE Sees and Knows ALL We Say & Do
    And YES, We Will Stand Before HIM One Day & Be Judged

    ALL Those TERRORIST Groups Who MURDER INNOCENT PEOPLE
    Will NEVER ENTER PARADISE
    and They Are The Ones Who HIDE Behind & MURDER CHILDREN
    ITS NOT THE JEWS

    Those Who Think Otherwise Obviously Do Not Know Any JEWS or Anything About The JEWISH
    People.
    If YOU HATE The JEWS Then Through Away Your iPads, Computers, Cell Phones, etc., For
    The JEWS Invented The Techonology That Makes ALL This Possible !!!
    When People are Seriously Ill or Wounded they Seek Out Jewish Doctors.
    JEWS are usually Business Owners, because they are Intelligent & Hard Workers
    Most Of All, They Are GIVERS, Not TAKERS
    The JEWS Are Not OUR ENEMY
    So STOP With The LIES
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 25 + Years & Still No Oprah Apology for “Jews Sacrifice Their Kids” Show
    By Debbie Schlussel

    She is surrounded by Jewish producers and advisers who made her billions. And she is gushed over by vapid Jewish liberals who worship her every word. But as Oprah winds down her wretched daytime talk show, this week, you won’t hear the apology she owes the Jewish people. Twenty-five years, and still no apology from Oprah for helping the Klan, Muslims, and others spread the blood libel that Jews sacrifice their children. Yup, Oprah did a show on exactly this topic in 1989 and never apologized and clearly never will.
    During the program, Ms. Winfrey introduced the guest as someone who was undergoing long-term psychiatric treatment for multiple personality disorder. The woman told Ms. Winfrey that she had witnessed the ritual sacrifice of Jewish children and had been a victim of ritualistic abuse. The guest also said of such practices: “There’s other Jewish families across the country. It’s not just my family.”. The woman’s comments provoked hundreds of angry phone calls and letters to Jewish and civil liberties groups, spokesmen for the groups said in interviews yesterday. They said viewers also contended that Ms. Winfrey did not challenge the woman’s statements sufficiently.

  • Nowadays it has become a fashion for Iran to demonise the christians for having the last supper in remembrance for Christ. Jesus gave himself as the food for His followers. So there is also another one theory that Jesus followers ate His dead body and with the evil spirit they proclaimed Jesus was alive. But One of His disciples Thomas came to India and disproved it Because He has had put his hand into the wounds of resurrected Christ. Iran killed Bishop Mehdi Deebaj, Mecavus tatallion etc. Now they make the false allegation against the Jews. Only a combination of Ethiopia, Egypt , England and israel alone can tech these fellows a lesson
