Blood Libel: Sarah Palin

There has been a lot of stone throwing ever since the shooting in Tucson Arizona. Many people have blamed Sarah Palin and said that statements she made caused Jason Lee Loughner to attempt to kill Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Palin of course denies that her words could have ever done such a thing. She doesn’t stop there though, she goes on to accuse them of manufacturing a blood libel.

blood libelFor those of you that do not know what blood libel is it refers to something that has caused many people to hate Jews for over 900 years. Claims were that the Jews had kidnapped a Christian child. Not only had they kidnapped him but they stabbed him in the head and drained him of his blood and put him on a cross. This blood libel was never proved to be truthful but it still caused many problems for the Jews.

Sarah Palin may not be to blame for what happened in Arizona but words do have power. Words can drive people to do many times and the power of life and death is in the tongue. Hopefully everyone will watch what we say more closely. I am sure that we will hear much more about blood libel in the days to come.
