Israel Arrests Iranian Spy, Blood Libels Ensue

Yesterday the Huffington Post covered the news that Israel claims it has arrested an Iranian spy. Since the article wasn't explicitly about Israel doing something wrong (and it was the weekend), there weren't as many comments as usual. Most of the comments were simply ad hominem attacks on Israel, Huffington Posters playing detective, or whining that Israel uses spies too (so it can't arrest Iranian ones?), but there were at least two so far spreading the ancient anti-Semitism myth of the blood libel, just modernized:

Welcome to the Huffington Post, where blood libels get you favorites and fans, not warnings.
