After Israel conceded to committing the crime of
theft of human organs in a program
which was aired on Israeli TV Channel 2, will the
Abu Kabir butchery, the so-called Autopsy
Institute of Forensic Medicine in Israel, be now
named a strategic base for the
of human beings?
How does the world look at the consequences of
the organized Israeli organ theft practiced at
Abu Kabir hospital? Which are the legal
procedures that can be taken against the perpetrators, often IDF officers?
Did Israel send their organ mafia to serve as IDF
officers in the West Bank so that they could
select and hunt Palestinian victims who had
traits (and organs) corresponding to specific
criteria, like the color of her skin, eyes and
This would help to explain many seemingly random
murders by the IDF, of children, of people going
about their business, people who often had no
role in resistance and who were not involved in political activity of any kind.
How many innocent Palestinian were murdered by
the IDF organ mafia? Were they executed for the
theft of their organs, in order to make millions of gains for the IDF?
The answers to these questions will be more
objective after reading the report translated
from Arabic newspapers into English. The Arabic
report includes excerpts of what was mentioned in
the report of Channel 2 aired on December 19 2009 in Israel.
Sunday Dec 20 2009, Tel Aviv, The Israeli
television Channel 2 reported that the organs of
the dead Palestinians were stolen in hospitals.
The TV report stated that many corneas and bones
long bones and the skin from the back, were
extracted from the bodies of Palestinians,
without the consent of their families.
Despite the denials of the doctors who work in
the autopsy institute stealing organs, the
Israeli television showed a tape of length of 57
minutes which was filmed in the Institute by
Judea Hiss (Yehuda Hiss), the director of Abu
Kabir Institute, who served as an official
medical autopsy and judiciary in Israel. Yehuda
Hiss released the video which shows how doctors
were extracting the organs of the dead, and what
was happening in the dark rooms of the Institute of Autopsy.
According to what was seen in the film, since the
early eighties until the end of 2000, while Hiss
was in charge of the Institute of Forensic
Medicine, everything was happening under the
authority of Hiss and signed under his name. The
organs of Palestinians and other dead people were
taken and implanted in the bodies of Jewish patients.
The video showed how Dr. Hiss did not hesitate to
tell to the doctors working with him to Take
from the dead very quickly! Take corneas and
implant them into the patients in need. The
video also showed how Dr. Hiss was himself extracting organs from cadavers.
Hiss was heard in the video saying: We were
taking the corneas without taking out the eyes,
and then we covered the place of the cornea and
closed the eye. We did that as scientific research.
According to the Law of autopsy in Israel, the
extraction of organs from cadavers without the
consent of the families of the dead is forbidden,
but Dr. Yehuda Hiss was not taking the law into his consideration.
Hiss said in the film: We gave these organs to
the hospitals in Israel, particularly the Tel
Hashomer Hospital in Tel Aviv. Because the
doctors there were my friends, we did not take
money in exchange for that, but the hospital gave
us a microscope after 4 years. We also provided
organs to the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, who
also gave us a video camera for the internal
organs of the body in return for the organs which we gave to them.
According to the Israeli television report, Abu
Kabir doctors were doing that without the
knowledge of the families of the deceased.
According to the statement of a professor at the
Institute we were extracting the long bones of
the dead, and sometimes we took parts of their heart.
And to return to what was exposed in the TV film,
the skin of the back was taken from the dead as
well the cornea, as a treatment for wounded Israel soldiers.
According to Avi Itrg We were taking the skin
off the back of the deceased and this was not
discovered by their families because they were
not turning the body during the burial, and they
did not know that we got the skin from the back of their dead relatives.
In 1986, Israel set up the skin bank. The bank
suffered from a lack of the skin, but the Abu
Kabir autopsy institute provided the bank with
the skin for wounded Israeli soldiers and citizens who suffered burns.
According to the video tape, Arieh Eldad, a
squatter in Kfar Adumim, who is a medical doctor
specializing in plastic surgery and was the chief
medical officer of the IDF from 1997-2000, and
who is a member of the Knesset for the National
Union, said We had orders not to take the
consent of the families while taking the organs of the dead.
Arieh Eldad was born in Tel Aviv in 1950, His
father, Israel Eldad was one of the leaders of
the underground group in Lohamei Herut Yisrael or
Lehi. He is a squatter in the West Bank
settlement of Kfar Adumim. From 1997-2000 Eldad
served as chief medical officer in the IDF with a
rank of brigadier general. From 2000-2003, after
leaving active military service, Eldad served as
director of the plastic surgery unit at the
Hadassah Ein-Kerem Hosptial in Jerusalem.
The Israeli television stated that the complaints
started in the nineties by members of the
families whose deceased relatives organs were
stolen. Dr. Hiss, who denied that the organ theft
had happened, did not know before denying that
the video, which he recorded while stealing the
organs, would find its way to the press.
Yehuda Hiss said that the Israeli army was
sending them an expert in cosmetic plastic
surgery (he meant by indirect way Dr. Arieh
Eldad), and they were allowing them to be interns
at the Abu Kabir autopsy institute. These
doctors were grabbing the skin from the dead for
transplants into the bodies of wounded soldiers.
A father of an Israeli officers who was killed,
said during the Israeli television report that he
was surprised when he opened the coffin of his
son, and he saw how the doctors played with the
body his son: they cut his neck, and pulled his
eyes, even though he warned them not to touch the body of his son.
An expert from the University of Brooklyn said:
I heard about the subject of stealing the
organs, and when I checked I found that Israel
removed organs from Palestinians, and implanted
them into the bodies of Israeli soldiers. She
strongly condemned the theft of the Palestinians
organs, and she wondered how somebody can grab
the organs from the body of the enemy and implant
them into the bodies of his own soldiers, without
the knowledge of their families. This is immoral behavior.
For its part, the Israeli health ministry
responded to the film which the Israeli TV showed
by saying: All what happened was in accordance with the law.
The criminal IDF spokesman refused to give a
comment on the film, and he asked to change the debate on the subject.
The Israeli hospitals have commented on the issue
by saying this topic is an old one and there is
no reason to talk about it now again.
Dr. Ahmed Al-Tibi, deputy of Knesset chairman,
head of Arab Bloc for change, confirmed that the
Abu Kabir institute grabbed skin patches and
corneas from the bodies of Palestinians for
Israeli soldiers in the 1990 years, and pointed
out that the second channel of Israeli television
presented a report and audio recordings of the
director of the Forensics Institute at Abu Kabir
with the facts which had not been published in the past.
These facts confirm that organs from all the
bodies which were brought to the Institute in the
nineties were stolen without the consent of the
family, whether they belonged to a Jew or to a
Palestinian. Al-Tibi added that skin patches were
taken into the skin bank of the hospital and
transferred to the soldiers who were subjected to
injuries or burns, and also that corneas also
taken from the eyes of the deceased.
The responsible for the theft project is the
former IDF officer Arieh Eldad, who is today a member of the Israeli Knesset.
British professor Nancy Schaefer Dios, who met
the director of Abu Kabir 10 years ago and
recorded a talk with him about these facts, said:
It is true that corneas and skin were taken from
the bodies of Palestinians and Israelis, but
taking the skin from the Palestinian bodies to
transfer it to the enemy soldiers, this is moral decline.
She added: you can take skin from the Israelis
to Israelis, but with the consent of the family,
but how is taking organs from Palestinians for
the benefit of Israeli soldiers understandable?"
