Nonprofit apologizes for blood libel article

A Palestinian nonprofit organization has removed an article from its website that accused Jews of using “the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover.”

The Miftah organization, founded by Palestinian lawmaker Hanan Ashrawi and funded by European and Western governments, reportedly apologized for publishing the article, after first refusing and then condemning the Jewish bloggers (Adam Kredo at the Washington Free Beacon was the first) who publicized the article.

The apology expressed the organization’s “sincerest regret.” — jta
