Jenny Tonge and commented: "Actually I said that if Israel was worried about the allegations they should investigate. The Jewish Chronicle got it wrong as usual."

The Liberal Democrat leader has sacked his health spokeswoman in the House of Lords after comments she made about alleged organ trafficking in Haiti.
Jenny Tonge told the Jewish Chronicle there should be an inquiry into claims that Israeli troops sent there after the earthquake were trafficking organs.
Nick Clegg said the comments were "wrong, distasteful and provocative" and dismissed her from her post.

London and Gaza, Feb. 13, 2010 (Pal Telegraph) - The dismissal of Baroness Jenny Tonge from her post as health spokesperson for the British Liberal Democrat party discourages freedom of expression and the search for truth, says the editorial team of the Palestine Telegraph.
Tonge was fired after calling in the Jewish Chronicle for an independent inquiry to disprove accusations of organ theft by the Israeli earthquake-relief team in Haiti. Concerns about possible organ theft by Israeli medical-relief workers were aired by a Jewish columnist for the Palestine Telegraph, Stephen Lendman.

On January 20, Lebanon's Al-Manar TV reported on the mission, citing a damning You Tube video posted by an American named T. West from a group called AfriSynergy Productions.
"The video presents something to think about while exploiting the horrible tragedy that has befallen Haiti where Israeli occupation soldiers are engaged in organ trafficking."
