Instead of discussing the fact Palestinians are 110% on the RIGHT SIDE OF THE LAW while Israel remains 110% ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE LAW, including the unlawful occupation of the Palestinian territories, Wolf Blitzer tried to play "gotcha" with a Palestinian official spokesman by playing a tape of Mr. Hassan Hamdan talking about the Jewish blood libel; Hamden explained to Blitzer the Jewish blood libel is part of recorded history. Hamden should have asked Blitzer about all those New York Rabbis being charged by New York City District Attorneys for sucking baby penises WHILE giving them AIDS and HERPES during Jewish circumcision rituals.

Blood libel (also blood accusation) is an accusation that Jews kidnapped and murdered the children of Christians to use their blood as part of their religious rituals during Jewish holidays. Historically, these claims—alongside those of well poisoning and host desecration—have been a major theme in European persecution of Jews.
Blood libels typically say that Jews require human blood for the baking of matzos for Passover, although this element was allegedly absent in the earliest cases that claimed (the contemporary) Jews reenacted the crucifixion. The accusations often assert that the blood of children of Christians is especially coveted, and, historically, blood libel claims have been made to account for otherwise unexplained deaths of children. In some cases, the victim of human sacrifice has become venerated as a martyr, a holy figure around whom a martyr cult might arise. Three of these -- William of Norwich, Little Saint Hugh of Lincoln, Simon of Trent—became objects of local cults and veneration, and in some cases were added to the General Roman Calendar, even though lacking official canonization in the Roman Catholic Church. One, Gavriil Belostoksky, was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church.
In Jewish lore, blood libels were the impetus for the creation of the Golem of Prague by Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel in the 16th century. According to Walter Laqueur:
Altogether, there have been about 150 recorded cases of blood libel (not to mention thousands of rumors) that resulted in the arrest and killing of Jews throughout history, most of them in the Middle Ages. In almost every case, Jews were murdered, sometimes by a mob, sometimes following torture and a trial.
