Deputy Head of Egyptian Arab Lawyers Union Abd Al-Azim Al-Maghrabi: The Zionists Produced the Hepatitis C Virus and Injected 400 Prisoners with It

The following excerpts are from an interview with Egyptian lawyer Abd Al-Azim Al-Maghrabi, deputy head of the Arab Lawyers Union, which aired on Al-Manar TV on April 21, 2010.

Abd Al-Azim Al-Maghrabi: As you've said, sometimes [the Israelis] turn prisoners into laboratory mice. In Al-Mahalla Al-Kubra, Egypt, there is a man called Abd Al-Rahman Al-Karadusi. This man suffers from liver failure, from cancer, and from many other diseases, but most importantly, it all started with a C virus in his liver. He said that the C virus is produced by the Zionists, and that 400 prisoners were injected with this virus. This virus is now spreading in Egypt like wildfire, as a consequence of this crime. I'd like to say that this is also classified as one of the war crimes perpetrated by the Zionist enemy.
