Putting aside what Ms. Palin (and others) may have meant by using this phrase, I am having trouble with what it actually means.
Does the libel refer to the sacrifice itself, or the lie that such sacrifices took (take) place?
I originally interpreted it to mean that libel in this context meant something like sully or denigrate, which is what the Jews did to the blood - That Jews engaged in blood libel. The victim of a blood libel is the Christian and the perpetrator are "the Jews"
Applying this interpretation to her metaphor would be this: Pundits (the Jews) are murdering Sarah Palin (Christians).
But in reading the etymology of the word libel, it seems to be focus solely on the act of writing or printing a lie.
So now I'm under the impression that the libel is the lie that such things took place and the victim are Jewish people and perpetrators are those who spread the lie.
Pundits (Christians, czarists etc.) lie about Sarah Palin's (The Jews') practices.
Please help, Wonkateers!
