Give a kidney for Justice - sort of

What do the Israeli Defense Minister, the Chief of the Mossad and the head of military intelligence for the IDF all have in common? There is a price on their heads put there by an Iranian group calling themselves the 'Islamic Student Justice Seekers' reports Ynet News:
According to the organization's announcement, the financial prizes are to be given to those who take out the three most senior members of the Israeli security establishment: Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Mossad Chief Meir Dagan and Head of Military Intelligence Amos Yaron.

"The prizes will be given to those who succeed in killing these three international terrorists in any place in the world," the statement read. According to the claims made by the Iranian student organization, Dagan, Barak and Yadlin are responsible for much more than merely Palestinian suffering. The group blamed the trio for the killing of senior Hizbullah military commander Mugniyah, who was killed in a car bomb in Damascus last month.
And just how does the Iranian student group propose to finance the pay-out?
The Justice Seekers also called for volunteers to donate a kidney in order to offer the money acquired via the act to increase the financial prize. The organizers claim that a number of civil groups agreed to take part in the ceremony in order to contribute to the amount of money offered for the heads of the Israeli threesome. The students in the extremist group are connected to another radical organization in Tehran called The Martyrs' Commemoration Headquarters, which organized the establishment of a monument for Imad Mugniyah in the Iranian capital.
No matter what you can make up, it is never as strange, as what your average anti-Semite can come up with. I suppose this can be considered progress as the group is not using student loan money.
