Hamas official mistakenly identifies MK Eichler as non-existent rabbi who called to poison Palestinian water supply.
The Palestinian Authority’s Foreign Ministry revived the well-worn blood libel of Jews poisoning wells this week.
The PA’s Foreign Ministry released a statement on Sunday citing a supposed ruling by a “Rabbi Mlmad” authorizing Israelis to poison Palestinian wells.
The Palestinian Foreign Ministry also accused Israel of cutting off water to West Bank Palestinians, a false accusation that was debunked last week.
False accusations of poisoning wells have been used to inflame violence against Jews since as early as the Middle Ages.
