Israeli government admits to illegal organ harvesting program.
The admission comes on the heels of previous Israeli government denials and claims of anti-semitism
, and is prompted by a report by Israel's Channel 2
(video in Hebrew and English), featuring an interview conducted in 2000 with Dr. Jehuda Hiss
, the former head of Israel's forensic institute, in which he claimed workers harvested skin, corneas, heart valves, and bones from Palestinians, Israelis, and foreign workers without notification or consent. It appears that Hiss conducted the interview after he was made a scapegoat for the illegal program
. Hiss has been subsequently silent, and it has has been speculated that he is being paid off, with the highest salary of any Israeli public sector employee

Someone less grindy give it a shot in a few days or something when it won't be more gas on a metacommentary fire. -- cortex
