Islamic Jew-hatred — it’s a central tenet of Islam. It’s why Muhammad annihilated an entire tribe of Jews. It’s why the Muslim world and their leftist lapdogs seek Israel’s destruction. It’s why the Jews are now forced to flee Europe. It’s what has given license to Jew-haters of all stripes to come out of the closet. The “Palestinians” demonstrate again and again that they have no intention ever of making peace with the Israelis; incidents such as these arrests over land sales are not at all uncommon. Yet the world persists with the ridiculous and destructive “peace process,” resolute in ignoring and denying reality.
“PA arrests 44 Palestinians for selling properties to Jews,” by Khaled Abu Toameh, Jerusalem Post, December 23, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
The Palestinian Authority announced on Sunday that its security forces have thwarted attempts by Palestinians to sell lands and houses in the West Bank and east Jerusalem to Jewish buyers, and the PA’s Preventive Security Service said in a rare statement that it has arrested 44 Palestinians suspected of involvement in the alleged real estate transactions.
The statement is in the context of a stepped-up PA campaign to deter Palestinians from selling properties to Jews. PA law bars selling land to a “hostile state or any of its citizens.”
In recent weeks, Palestinian religious authorities have repeatedly warned Palestinians against engaging in such deals and said that anyone who violates the law would be accused of “high treason.” The warning came in the aftermath of a number of cases in which east Jerusalem residents either sold their houses to Jewish organizations or were suspected of acting as middlemen in the real estate transactions.
According to the statement, the alleged real estate transactions included 300 hectares of land and three houses in six West Bank districts, including Jerusalem. The transactions were foiled on the basis of “accurate intelligence and field work,” it added.
The purported transactions were supposed to take place in the areas of Ramallah, el-Bireh, Hebron, Salfit, Nablus and Kalkilya, the statement said, adding that 44 Palestinian suspects have been arrested.
The suspects have been referred to the PA prosecutor-general so they could face legal measures, the statement said. Three of the suspects, who were not identified, have been sentenced to 15 years in prison with hard labor, it added, while the remaining suspects are currently standing trial.
The Preventive Security Service said that in accordance with instructions from the Palestinian political echelon Palestinians involved in the sale of properties to Jews will be dealt with firmly and in accordance with the law. “The sale of properties [to Jews] poses a dangerous threat to [Palestinian] national security,” it cautioned.
Osama Qawassmeh, a Fatah spokesman in the West Bank, said last month that PA President Mahmoud Abbas has issued “direct orders” to the Palestinian security forces to crack down on Palestinians suspected of involvement is selling properties to Jews….
