“Jews used the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover”


In 2003 the Sydney Peace Prize was presented to Dr Hanan Ashrawi by then NSW Premier Bob Carr at NSW Parliament House.  Ashrawi is founder and Secretary General of the Palestinian Initiative for the Promotion of Global Dialogue and Democracy (MIFTAH)

In 2003 MIFTAH was in coalition with Fatah and Ashrawi was a close associate of Yassir Arafat. 

In 2003 210 Israelis were murdered and 1123 were wounded by terrorists sent by Arafat, Fatah and its allies. A list of their names and who they were is here. 
"Jews Over The Line Are Illegal" (JOLLI)  Founder, Chairperson and global activist..
The other one is Hanan Ashrawi.

In 2013 and ten years later MIFTAH published an article on its website that claimed “Jews used the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover”.  The article was published just before the Easter and Passover holidays and was a response to Obama's first speech in Israel.  Ashrawi has refused to apologise claiming that spreading the blood libel was due to its editorial policy of "open dialogue".

More on the nature and history of the blood libel and its latest manifestation is here.

"What is an occasional violent racist blood libel when you are among friends?"


  1. People like Ashrawi sure have a telling definition of 'open dialogue,' don't they?

    1. It's a dialogue open one way only. Tellingly the blood libel was only in the Arabic language version of the MIFTAH site, not the English version. It was picked up by Elder of Ziyon. That guy is worth a thousand pens on his own.

  2. They eventually did apologise but only in the English language version of their website where they blood libel had not been made.

    No apology has ever been made on the Arabic Language version of the site where the blood libel was made in the first place.

    One face for the West. One face for the East.
