Just in time for Halloween, the Associated Press reports the following ghoulish story:

Hamas militants holding severed leg of Israeli soldier

A family of Hamas militants is still holding the severed leg of an Israeli commando killed four months ago in an explosion during a raid on the family's house in the Gaza Strip.

The office of the Hamas spiritual leader, Sheik Ahmed Yassin, says the al-Ghoul family is free to do what it wants with the remains, including opening negotiations with Israel for its return.

The al-"Ghoul" family? How fitting.

So what do dead Jewish body parts fetch on the open market? An Islamic spiritual leader says it's OK to find out.

But here is the good news: they now seem to be holding out for more than just a lampshade or a bar of soap.

Who said Jewish blood was cheap?
