(iWIDK By Mike McCurdy) - Selling to the wrong person is punishable by death in Palestine.
Muhammad Abu Shahala, a former intelligence agent for Palestine, was sentenced to death following a confession he made under torture that he sold his home to Jews.
According to The Weekly Standard, under the laws of the Palestinian Authority, the governing body, selling property to Jews is still a capital offense and has been since the establishment of the PA in 1994.
Shahala will not be executed until the warrant is signed by the current PA president, Abu Mazen.
The PA is being criticized by many as barbaric and likening it to the Third Reich. A call has gone out to the international community in an effort to save Shahala’s life.
