My Mideast Punchlines: Beanz Meanz Timez…..

Following emails from my good self and others, Time magazine retracted allegations that Israeli soldiers harvested and sold Palestinian organs (see my previous blog).

On Sunday, the magazine deleted the allegations from a two-minute video on its website about the Israel Defense Forces and added a correction, writing at the end, “Correction: The original version of this video cited a contested allegation in a 2009 Swedish newspaper report as fact. The allegation has been removed from the video.”

Small FistIt was, of course, my reference to Hannibal Lecter that caused them to retract. They obviously didn’t want to upset an all-American hero by upstaging him. Now where did I put that tin of fava beans?
