    Re: Sarah Palin accuses critics of "blood libel"

    i'm curious how many afgan civilians have been killed since we started focusing on how violent each side's speech is. btw, which side is for halting all civilian deaths as a result of our foreign policy?
    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    Ah so in this case I guess the comparison might be accurate if he wants to hold the position Palin's use of 'blood libel' is just slang. Afterall, she is really stupid and uneducated.

    Completely false. This is a inaccurate blanket statement.

    Sarah Palin is doing what many conservatives do so well - scream they are the victim.

    Don't personally care for her much one way or the other.

    She'd be fairly irrelevant if you guys would just let her be. LOL

    But I understand, with Bush gone, you need a new poster child to get people to stop smoking weed and show up at the polls.

    Ah....dang it. "Weed" is slang.

    Re: Sarah Palin accuses critics of "blood libel"

    Blood libel (also blood accusation[1][2]) refers to a false accusation or claim[3][4][5] that religious minorities, almost always Jews[citation needed], murder children to use their blood in certain aspects of their religious rituals and holidays.[1][2][6] Historically, these claims have–alongside those of well poisoning and host desecration–been a major theme in European persecution of Jews.[4]
    The libels typically allege that Jews require human blood for the baking of matzos for Passover. The accusations often assert that the blood of Christian children is especially coveted, and historically blood libel claims have often been made to account for otherwise unexplained deaths of children. In some cases, the alleged victim of human sacrifice has become venerated as a martyr, a holy figure around whom a martyr cult might arise. A few of these have been even canonized as saints.[citation needed]
    In Jewish lore, blood libels were the impetus for the creation in the 16th century of the Golem of Prague by Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel. Many popes have either directly or indirectly condemned the blood accusation, and no pope has ever sanctioned it.[7] These libels have persisted among some segments of Christians to the present time.
