The Palestinian Authority death sentence for the Arab who sold a
Hevron building to Jews is similar to the Nuremberg Laws under
Hitler, Hevron Jewish community spokesmen wrote in a letter to United
Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
“Is the Palestinian Authority a reincarnation of the Third Reich?”
asked spokesmen David Wilder and Noam Arnon in the letter, published
as an op-ed this week in Arutz Sheva.
The letter was also sent to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton,
U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro, and to Israel’s President
and Prime Minister as well as the leaders of the International Red
Cross and the European Council of the European Union.
The Palestinian Authority, which is headed by Mahmoud Abbas, has
sentenced to death former PA intelligence agent Mohammed Abu Shahala
for the crime of selling the building to Jews. Shahala reportedly was
tortured by Palestinian Authority officials.
Fifteen Jewish families moved into the three-story structure three
weeks ago, but Defense Minister Ehud Barak evicted them on the
grounds that their presence in the building, across from the Cave of
Patriarchs, was a “provocation.”
Shahala’s life is in the hands of Abbas, whose signature on the death
sentence would seal his fate. The Palestinian Authority operates
under Jordanian law that requires the death penalty for anyone who
sells property to Jews.
“The very fact that such a ‘law’ exists within the framework of the
PA legal system points to a barbaric and perverse type of justice,
reminiscent of practices implemented during the dark age,” wrote
Wilder and Arnon.
They wrote Ban, “What would be the reaction to a law in the United
States, England, France, or Switzerland, forbidding property sales to
Jews? Actually, less than one hundred years ago, such acts were
legislated and practiced, known as the infamous ‘Nuremberg laws.’
“On October 3, 1938 ,Nazi Germany, under the leadership of Adolf
Hitler, implemented a ‘Decree of the Confiscation of Jewish
Property,´ regulating the transfer of assets from Jews to non-Jewish
Arutz Sheva reported Sunday that several Israeli Knesset Members and
leaders in Judea and Samaria have called on the government to help
save Shahala from death.
“Abu Shahala will be executed in Ramallah, barely 15 minutes´ drive
from the government´s headquarters in Jerusalem,” said Danny Dayan,
chairman of the Council of Communities in Judea and Samaria. “Israel
cannot allow this travesty to take place.” (IsraelNationalNews © 2012
