"Forke Tonge" by Stan Brin

Author says: Baroness Tonge, the British Liberal peer, recently said that Israel should set up an inquiry to disprove allegations that its medical teams in Haiti “harvested” organs of earthquake victims for use in transplants. But what if these seemingly anti-semitic remarks provoked a real-life Jewish revenge attack like in the movie "Inglorious Basterds"?. Please note that the opinions expressed in this post do not necessarily reflect the views of the author(s).

February 14th, 2010: on this day in 2010, Baroness Tonge (pictured), the former opposition frontbencher and spokeswoman for health, has not responded to press reports that her two attackers have branded her face with Nazi swastikas.

Lady Tonge was removed from her position last week for suggesting that Israeli physicians working in Haiti following last months earthquake, used to opportunity to harvest organs for sale.

"She appears to require a face transplant," a hospital worker said. Lady Tonge is currently in hospital recovering from a massive beating, administered by at least two men. She described them as resembling the actors Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt, neither of whom is Jewish. According to the Mail, she may never walk again.

Author says, the story refers to the movie "Inglorious Basterds", in which Jewish commandos of the OSS conduct revenge attacks behind enemy lines, carving swastiskas in their victim's foreheads. I do not encourage anyone to do such a thing, but if it had happened, in the words of Mark Twain, "I would have postponed all other recreations to attend the festivities".
