Legal Action Against Aftonbladet

August 26, 2009 12:07 by


An Israeli lawyer filed a lawsuit against Aftonbladet in a New York court. YNet News explains why the Big Apple:

Ophir claimed, "The newspaper published an anti-Semite and racist blood libel which constitutes incitement to racism against Jews and IDF soldiers." He added, "The suit was filed in New York since the paper is distributed there and since the reporter made a connection to claims of New York resident rabbis who trade with organs."

Activists in Sweden also have the wheels of justice turning, but judging from reports in The Local and Haaretz, the outcome will be likely be Swede and sour.
