On July 23, 2014, a number of NGO doctor-activists, including Mads Gilbert (NORWAC), Swee Ang (Medical Aid for Palestinians), and Paola Manduca (New Weapons Committee), published An Open Letter for the People in Gaza in The Lancet, a UK medical journal. Under the guise of presenting “the facts,” they demonize Israel for “the perversity of a propaganda that justifies the creation of an emergency to masquerade a massacre.” In response, the Israeli Ministry of Health reportedly identified the letter as “bordering on blood libel.”
