Some Refugees Are Being Sold For Organs

Tyler Durden's picture

While there have been numerous headlines and stories that have come out of the immigrant crisis over the past year and a half, one recent revelation is particularly disturbing.

Migrants traveling from Africa to Europe who are unable to pay smugglers for their journey are being sold and killed for their organs the Independent reports.

Nuredein Wehabrebi Atta, a people smuggler who has been sentenced to five years in prison for his involvement in moving migrants, told Italian police that migrants who couldn't pay for journeys across the Mediterranean "were sold for €15,000 to groups, particularly Egyptians, who are equipped for harvesting organs."

Atta's testimony helped break open a transnational network dedicated to migrant trafficking with Italian police confirming they have detained 38 people suspected of being involved: 25 Eritreans, 12 Ethiopians and one Italian. Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said the group used Rome for its financial transactions hub, and the arrests have dealt a "harsh blow" to the criminal network.

Atta had been granted witness protection in Italy in exchange for a confession, and an Eritrean man arrested in 2014 had collaborated with authorities in order to provide for the first time a complete picture of the trafficking operations.

From the Independent

Palermo police said in a statement that an Eritrean man who was arrested in 2014 collaborated with authorities, providing for the first time "a complete reconstruction of criminal activities" of migrant trafficking involving operations both in North Africa and Italy.


Mr Atta is the first foreigner to be granted witness protection in Italy. He said the shocking number of deaths among migrants attempting to cross the sea is what led him to confess, specifically the death of 360 due to a boat sinking in Lampedusa, though he said he was not involved in the incident.


"The deaths that we were aware of were a small part of it," Mr Atta told police, according to local media. "In Eritrea alone there have been victims in eight out of 10 families."


He said that migrants who can not afford to pay the smugglers are then sold to organ traffickers.

The number of refugees displaced by conflict was estimated to have reached a global total of 65 million, a record high, at the end of 2015. Sadly, much of this crisis (if not all) is driven by countries such as the United States meddling in other people's affairs and creating an even worse situation than was previously the case. Unfortunately, we don't believe this will cease being the case any time soon.

That's some dark I know it's happening and has been for years. Just a chilling reminder.

Real dark...Some people have no compassion. They need an adjustment.

The Israelis are the most ruthless organ harvesters. They shoot and harvest. They even keep their harvestees in open-air prisons like Gaza and refugee camps. Easy to pluck when needed.

Actually they keep the Palestinians in concentration camps. Guess they learned it from their pal Adolf.

It's probably the Israelis doing it. They're untouchables. When you touch them, they invoke the boogeyman Adolf or cry like babies that we hate them. SO they have carte blanche to do whatever they want, 911 included.

If every simple cell in a Jewish body entails divinity, is a part of God, then every strand of DNA is a part of God. Therefore, something is special about Jewish DNA.


If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value. There is something infinitely more holy and unique about Jewish life than non-Jewish life.


Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg, Jewish Week, April 26, 1996

Bunch of HOLY CRAP.

1. Jews are not hebrews of bible.
2. No such thing as Jewish DNA. It's a religion.
3. Jews are comprised of various groups like AshkaNAZI, Sephardum, Europeeans, Africanums, etc.

But I got your point.

Being sold for organs? So what, and I honestly don't believe it - just propaganda to make whitey feel bad imo. And if true - so what? Finally get some cash value out of these people.

Some German might wake up from a black market surgery and find he's got a black heart stolen from a black; we're reaching peak hilarity, people.

Khazarians are Ashkenazic. One and the same.

Benjamin123's picture

Khazarians are mostly poles. They intermarried so much with poles over 1000 years that any traces of non polish blood have been diluted to vestigial remmanants.

Dont make it so complicated with theories, whatever their origins, jew-khazarian folk are simply poles that identify as jews.

Benjamin123's picture

Jews are supremacists but they dont have a monopoly on greed and are outnumbered 5000 to 1. For every cruel jew there are 500 cruel goyim, just by sheer demographic realities.

Gaza is not a concentration camp. It is a filthy overcrowded city under a joint israeli-egyptian blockade. It is not the same but you round eyes have a pavlovian reflex for the "concentration camp" analogies. Once heard you cant be reasoned with.

Both Israel and Egypt keep Gaza in a state of eternal despair but they keep the lights on and send enough flour trucks to keep starvation at bay, a luxury not granted to some in Syria and the middle east in general (not couting the gulf states).

It hurts, but blaming the messenger won't change a thing.

If this is true,you can lay a large part of this at the feet of pretty much every euro govt, especially the EU itself. If they weren't promising these people endless free shit and a life of leisure they wouldn't be putting themselves in this position in the first place.

What about western governments supporting dictators in Africa and overturning legitimous governments?

That was done with some effect decades ago, but since Soviets invaded Afghanistan, they changed the game. They put their man in, which US was never quite able to accomplish mostly because of excessive guilt, etc. Unfortunately, Soviets could not keep their man in, and Putin is in process of failing now. 

It seems that George Bush is looking much better nowadays. He had some success out of his carnage, Kurds, Iraq even, until Obama pulled the plug. Bush left the Arabs of all stripes in better shape than this amateur in the White House, Moslem that he be!

I don't get this either. You can't just take a kidney out of some unrelated person and transplant it into another without a significant rate of rejection. Kidneys need to be HLA matched and even with anti rejection meds, we see some transplants fail. I'd like to see the stats on the success of these operations.


WillyGroper's picture

not being sarcastic, as long as they're getting paid with the goal being depopulation, it appears logical to me albeit diabolical.

0b1knob's picture

Exactly my point.   The tissue matching requirements for organ transplant are so specific that a stolen organ would be practically worthless.

The "vast international market" for organs to transplant exists only in the imaginations of stupid reporters and Hollywood screenwriters.  This story is just bullshit propaganda meant to generate sympathy for IMmigrants.

It wasn't that many years ago that there were similar stories about US troops in Iraq killing people for their organs.   They even made a movie about it called Valley of the Wolves: Iraq.

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

The only way this would work would be to have an international tissue registry where individuals would be selected by type ( why do I get an image of John Cleese knocking on my door... Hmmm). Unfortunately for the elite, matches tend to fall along racial, family lines so a youngster in Sri Lanka would be most likely safe from their bid for extended life.


Kirk2NCC1701's picture

Would the HLA matching have to be done before they are removed (if it's a time-consuming process that exceeds the shelf-life of a removed kidney), or is it a fast test?

If it's a fast test, then you need to enter the results into a database and fly them off whereever they need to be.  If the test takes time, then they would not harvest them until the test results are in.  

If they find a match, then obviously they're going to be careless and inhumane in the organ removal, as long as the organ itself is handled hygenically.

azusgm's picture

It doesn't take long. IIRC from my ICU days 10-15 years ago, tissue typing from blood took a couple of hours. In the US, there are registries that have the potential recipients' tissue typing and ranking according to severity of need in their databases. Usually the donors are matched with recipients and the logistics completed in less than a day in the case of a donor with brain death. Even with life support, organs don't last forever in brain dead bodies, so transplant systems are regionalized.

... and the National Propaganda Radio and other Far Left media make a big deal about "blood diamonds" instead.

I can't believe that they're saying it's migrants doing this to migrants instead of blaming the EEEVILL white man.

I wasn't aware that killing them was an option. What do you think the cap rate is for organs?

On shoebat website they had a story on Egyptian slaughterhouses and have video - it was unreal to see men gutted and hanging on meat hooks - a pile of heads in the corner. There is also an outbreak in the areas surrounding the Syrian conflict of diseases which have not been seen in many years - diseases related to canobilism

The Saudi's are behind most of that, their kidneys don't work from so much interbreeding.

That would be a diabolical plot; starting the wars in the M.E. so kidneys would come their way?

Well, why not, they behead people for being gay and won't let Women drive or get an education so...

Not only that, Saudi are famous in all North Africa for marry , in exchange for money , with poor Virgin child girl just for sexually exploit them than divorce and hunt another one, all legal and clean according the " religion of love."

Socratic Dog's picture

I see the logic, they don't let women drive cars, so obviously they would slaughter innocents for their organs.

Logic indeed.  You fucking idiot.
