In response to a PA blood-libel letter to the UN accusing Israel of harvesting organs of Palestinians, Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon on Wednesday called on the Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, to condemn the Palestinian representative for his anti-Semitic remarks and hateful lies‫.

“After returning the seized bodies of the Palestinians killed by the occupying forces through October, and following medical examinations, it has been reported that the bodies were returned with missing corneas and other organs, further confirming past reports about organ harvesting by the occupying power from the Palestinian victims of its brutality,” the Palestinian representative, Riyad Mansour, charged in his letter.

In response, Danon said, "This blood libel by the Palestinian representative exposes his anti-Semitic motives and his true colors."

Ambassador Danon told the Secretary-General: "Anti-Semitism has no place in the halls of the United Nations and must be denounced. I call on you to repudiate this sinister accusation and to condemn the ongoing incitement by Palestinian leaders."

Mansour's letter was published hours after Israel returned to the PA the body of the Arab terrorist who critically wounded a Border Police officer near Halhul in the Hevron region.

Just this Saturday a massive terror funeral was held in Hevron for five terrorists returned by Israel, in a ceremony full of praise for the terrorists which later led to rock attacks on IDF soldiers.
