Palestinian Authority to hang Arab for selling land to Jews


Instead of taking land by force, Israelis are trying to buy it from Arab owners. For the first time, the Palestinian Authority has sanctioned a verdict of treason for making a land deal with a Jew. These are the Palestinians Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama consider to be moderates. Secretary Clinton held talks with the Palestinian Authority in early March during her Middle East visit. The Obama administration pledged $200 million to shore up the Palestinian Authority's budget and another $400 million for educational and institutional reform. I wonder if they will use US aid money to buy the rope? IsraelNationalNews.com is reporting:
A Palestinian Authority military court on Tuesday sentenced a Hevron Arab to death by hanging for the crime of selling land to Jews in Judea and Samaria, the Bethlehem-based Ma'an news agency reported. The three-member judicial panel heard the case last week and handed down its verdict and conviction on Tuesday.

Dozens of Arabs have been executed in the past for collaborating with Israel by selling land to Jews, but the court’s ruling is the first time the PA officially has handed down a guilty verdict of treason for the crime. Previous summary executions with the approval of the PA have been met with outcries from human rights organizations

Interesting question. Perhaps they don't want to make the PA and Obama look bad. If it were the Israelis, it would be everyone's lead.

They also chide the Israelis for not aupporting a 2-state solution, which is a lie. Its the Palestinians which will not abide with the existance of Israel.

I wish leftists lived in some semblance of reality
