Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the European Union, will visit Israel next month, despite the controversy over a Swedish newspaper that accused the IDF of harvesting organs from Palestinians, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said Tuesday. Ha'aretz reported last week that Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman had threatened to cancel Bildt's trip if the Swedish Foreign Ministry did not condemn the article that was published in the top-circulation newspaper in the country, Aftonbladet
