New Dutch Blood Libel

George_sluizer Haaretz picks up on the latest blood libel:

The claim first appeared in the Volkskrant, the third largest paper in the Netherlands, in an interview with the well-known Dutch-Jewish director George Sluizer. According to Sluizer, 78, he witnessed Sharon killing two Palestinian toddlers with a pistol in 1982 near the refugee camp Sabra-Shatilla while filming a documentary there.

Like Donald Bostrom's Swedish blood libel, there's no corroborating evidence. The cameraman who Sluizer claims also witnessed the shooting, Fred van Kuyk, is dead. And Sharon's in a coma.

So we can only take Sluizer's word for it.

An Israeli defense minister personally killing Palestinian toddlers would've been quite a scoop back in '82. Why is Sluizer only coming out with these allegations now?

1) sharon was not in Lebanon during sabra and shatila massacre (see Kahan commission findings)
2) IDF was not in Sabra and Shatila during the masacre (see Kahan commission findings)
3) I am not an expert, but I don't think IDF went into Sabra and Shatila before the massacre (for sure not defence minister), it was PLO wild west, and IDF let the phalange in to clean up PLO fighters. After the massacre it was in media spotlight, so it is rather doubtful that nobody would notice Defence minister and his body guards walking through it
