Lebanese Poet Marwan Chamoun: Jews Slaughtered Christian Priest in Damascus in 1840 and Used His Blood for Matzos
The following are excerpts from an interview with Lebanese poet Marwan Chamoun, which aired on TeleLiban TV on January 30, 2007.

Marwan Chamoun: "How many of us Lebanese, or even Arabs, know anything about the Talmud? Or about the book, Exposing the Talmud? Or about the book, Pawns on the Chessboard? Or about another book, The Secret World Government? Or about Exposing the Talmud? Or about Blood for the Matzah of Zion, [which deals with] the slaughter of the priest Tomaso de Camangiano, who was a Sicilian with French citizenship, in the days of Muhammad Ali Pasha, in 1840..."
"[Former Syrian] Minister Mustafa Tlass wrote a voluminous book about this, in which he included all the documents written by the French diplomats and consul in Lebanon."
"The world loves the Jews. The 'ruler' is Christianity - the Christian West. Arabs, Muslims - why don't you take advantage of something like this? A priest was slaughtered in the presence of two rabbis in the heart of Damascus, in the home of a close friend of this priest, Daud Al-Harari, the head of the Jewish community of Damascus. After he was slaughtered, his blood was collected, and the two rabbis took it. Why? So they could worship their god, because by drinking human blood, they can get closer to God. Where are our diplomats and politicians? Why don't we profit from these historical matters, which are presented to us on a simple, eternal, golden platter?
"As I've said, these books can be found on the streets of Beirut. There are approximately 20 to 30 such books. I must have bought about 2,000 copies since they were published, maybe more. I'd like to say 20,000 copies, but I don't know. When somebody gets married, instead of chocolates, I give him one of these books. Whoever reads this for the first time feels a chill of horror and disbelief. He cannot believe it."
You would think they would get new and more plausible lies.
Propaganda rhetoric from Islamics who also try to make us believe that Islam is a religion of Peace.
This type of indoctrination goes on in US and British mosques day in, day out, every day, 365 days a year.
Marwan? Didn't Jack kill him in Season...um...4?
Oh good grief. Not this < plonk > again.
OK, they've caught us, we use blood in matzo for Passover and cakes for Purim. But what is this
The world loves the Jews. The 'ruler' is Christianity
I thought that the Jews ran everything behind the scenes.
As sad as this article is, he's a legitimate academic, and it's being heard in Lebanon, taken by many as fact, and worth reading to understand what's happening there.
As to the "ruler" quote, it makes perfect sense. There are no Jews in Lebanon to expel. Christians, finally a minority, are another story.
I'm sure they've changed the recipe since then.
I don't know, something about this story doesn't sound kosher.
So this is what that "No blood for Matzos!"
poster was all about at the antiwar rally.
This charge of murder arose from the sudden disappearance of a certain Father Thomas, who lived there a long time as a Catholic priest, and it was reported that the Jewish congregation of that city had murdered him to mingle his blood with the Passover bread, though the festival was celebrated long after the disappearance of this priest, wherefore his blood must have possessed a peculiar property if it could be kept so long without being spoiled. The torture and the tyrannical proceedings of the chief of Damascus, Serif Pacha, which he practised against that unfortunate congregation, were indeed stayed by the interference of the supreme authority of the state; but as no trace of the body of Father Thomas could ever be found, notwithstanding the most careful and diligent search, the suspicion that he had been made away with by the Jews has always remained, although the fact could not be proved.
About four years later, a Christian boy at Alexandria, who had been seen for the last time at the house of a Jewish merchant, suddenly disappeared. As may be expected, the suspicion fell again on the poor Jews, that they had murdered him according to their custom; and the consequence was nearly a riot of the Christians of Alexandria against the Jews. But the tolerant Mahmud Ali Pacha interfered by force of arms, and protected the unfortunate. To pacify, however, in a certain degree, the excited Christians, and since a suspicion was attached to the Jews, because the boy had been last seen in the house of one of them, he ordered them to use all possible efforts to trace him out; set them a long term when they should be held to answer the charge against them; and gave them all possible protection to carry on the investigation in every direction. The Jews were nevertheless in the greatest perplexity, as the problem was a most difficult and important one to discover the lost boy. They had therefore recourse to the power of money, the potent general solvent, and they promised a large reward to any one who should produce to them the missing child. And they were actually right in this mode of proceeding; for a compassionate young man, one of the rioters, who pitied the hard fate of the unfortunate Jews, after he had heard of the large prize offered by them, promised to deliver them from their dilemma, in order to obtain the reward. He only required a few sensible men among the Jews as also a few men as a guard for his protection to accompany him, and then set out on his search. When he had come to a Greek convent at a considerable distance from Alexandria, he said, "Here is the boy, as he has been taken under the protection of the holy and pious fathers." It, however, required a great deal of trouble and stratagem to get the boy to come out of the precincts of the convent, which, however, the young man at last succeeded in by the address with which he entrapped the priests; and as soon as the boy was outside, he was at once firmly detained by the escort. But it would not have answered any good purpose to employ force; since these saints were fully capable to murder the boy and conceal his body sooner than let the innocence of the Jews be proved. In brief, however, the boy was delivered up to the Jews in Alexandria perfectly sound and well; and every one was thus clearly and fully convinced that the whole was nothing but a wicked contrivance to have a pretext to torture and persecute the helpless Jews. What a commentary this on the conduct of the servants of the sole saving church! The young man then obtained the promised reward, when he said, "O ye unskilful Jews! give me a greater prize, and I will procure you the body of the long-since-consumed Father Thomas of Damascus, fat and sleek as he was years ago." But the poor Jews were glad enough in the happy finding of the boy, not to require the reproduction of the other party, and for fear of stirring up the nearly forgotten affair, they left it untouched, although they were greatly blamable for so doing.
When I learned these particulars at a later period, I took all the pains possible to reveal this mystery to the world. But I could not succeed, from various causes; first, because I could not be on the spot, Alexandria; and secondly, and this more especially on account of the very large sum which the discoverer demanded, which he did probably, because he would in all likelihood not have been safe any longer in the country, and in every other place else where he would have come in contact with monk or friar, who might have been interested in the business; and he was therefore compelled in a measure to demand enough means to procure himself an asylum abroad. This flagitious act was therefore passed over with indifference, and remains a mystery to the world.
Warning! This is a high-volume ping list.
"I don't know, something about this story doesn't sound kosher."
Well, if the priest had cloven hooves and chewed his cud, it would be OK.
Except for the blood part.
Thank you for the TIMELY, 1840, response :>)
Muzzies will believe pretty anything as long as its bloody and horrific..
Wouldn't that matzoh be PINK?
Another one of our democratic "allies" in the ME?
That seems to be true.
Something tells me that this story aint exactly Kashrut
Sorta like when they took the dolphin out of tuna.
That's what's so scary. It's very 1930s Germany where the majority of the population would swallow whatever big lie Hitler & Co. would feed them because it was so much easier to just go along. You could get hurt if you didn't, y'know?
It's obscene and beyond ridiculous to ever accept the old blood libel, but millions of unthinking, eternally malleable Arab masses are probably inclined to believe it. It's such a simple seductive belief: those clever Jews are to blame for everything wrong. Once this is absorbed, then there is a visible enemy that is much easier to hate than hating yourself and your culture for all your own failures.
> I thought that the Jews ran everything behind the scenes.
Hey, waitaminit! I thought we Freemasons ran everything behind the scenes! What gives...?
> A few of them project accusations of the same against Judaism
Sometimes I wonder whether these pronouncements from Militant Muslim clerics aren't some form of obscure, elaborate joke that I'm somehow too thick to "get". Something like Monty Python would have been if English had been your second language back in the 1970's and if you didn't understand British politics. An "in" joke where I'm obviously out...
"Tomaso de Camangiano" sounds like something this dude just read off an Italian restaurant menu: whatever it is, it sounds delicious! Just the thing to wash down with a nice, inexpensive Chianti. Garlic matzos on the side...
I half-expect to see these clerics and their followers snickering at us, like we have been Prize Fools and have stumbled into their joke exactly as planned.
And then I see their eyes, and that tells it all: they actually *believe* this stuff, in *earnest*. The joke is on them, surely -- but they are taking it as smoking-red-hot-gospel.
So now the Homicide Bombers and the 72 Virgins suddenly make sense. What most of us would view as a sick joke, they actually genuinely *believe* with all their heart, soul and mind. They blow themselves and others to smithereens, and they actually *believe* that 72 virgins will minister to them in Paradise! Hah!
(exactly where they would find 72 eligible virgins in the middle east remains an open question...)
And I bet they believe that all these "virgins" look like Paris Hilton under the burka -- no facial hair! The poor, sick, sorry, besotted and benighted silly fools!
(I got a bridge I can sell them -- real cheap! It's used, naturally, so I'll give 'em a discount! Honest Injun.)
It's a collective moronic state-of-mind. These lads are certifiable! Somebody needs to call out the guys with the large butterfly nets and the inconvenient long-sleeve shirts that cross over in front and fasten behind.
It would be risible indeed were it not for a fact that this particular joke is so deadly.
Maybe because they aren't insane.

I absolutely do not believe this diatribe and will research this tomorrow. As an Historian, I say balderdash to such accusations and the source is suspect.

Hey, if you can't trust a poet, who can you trust?
Gee, ya think?
What is disgusting is that this blood libel evil keeps persisting long, long after it was disproven as a great big steaming pile.
How could a group that slaughters Christians and Jews on videotape, hope to profit from a single murder that "allegedly" occured in 1840.
'Cuz Allah told 'em to try anyway...
Unfortunately, there are a couple of fringe Christian groups which also believe this nonsense - these are the people who use a twisted hateful theology to justify their hatred of Israel and indulge in "replacement theology". The Schmuslims have borrowed from their rhetoric. The first time I read the nonsense on one of their sites, I wondered what century I was living in. These jerks even try to justify the expulsion of the Jews from Spain by claiming that the Jews killed Christian children and drank their blood. It would never occur to them that libel is libel is libel.
A priest was slaughtered in the presence of two rabbis in the heart of Damascus, in the home of a close friend of this priest, Daud Al-Harari, the head of the Jewish community of Damascus. After he was slaughtered, his blood was collected, and the two rabbis took it. Why? So they could worship their god, because by drinking human blood, they can get closer to God. Where are our diplomats and politicians? Why don't we profit from these historical matters, which are presented to us on a simple, eternal, golden platter?
I think the Notzerim are projecting their own religion onto the Jews here! Didn't the ancient pagan Romans accuse the early Notzerim of butchering an infant and eating it? Yet when they came to power they used this same lie on the Jews!
Hypocrisy, thy name is Natzerut!
Before chr*stianity ever existed, the pagan Greeks were claiming that the Jews offered Greeks as human sacrifices to HaShem in the Beit HaMiqdash.
Well, if the priest had cloven hooves and chewed his cud, it would be OK.
Except for the blood part.
Actually, human flesh is not fleisheg and human milk is not milchig, so I assume that human blood is also not bludig.
However, all this means is that humans aren't food!
I'm only reporting what was told to me many years ago, an urban legend that apparently was believed by certain people in the Hitler era.
Propaganda from the Islamic Reich..
