Jerusalem Mufti Sentences 5 to Death
Arutz 7 ^ | 15:01 Mar 03, '05 | staff

Posted on 03/03/2005 9:02:29 AM PST by Nachum

(IsraelNN.com) The head of the Islamic Wakf in Jerusalem, Mufti Ikrema Sabri, has sentenced five Arab men to death.

The executions, which have already been approved by PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), are expected to be carried out shortly.

Of the 51 PA Arabs slated for execution, about half are accused of helping Israel.

The PA has held several public executions in the past, killing "collaberators" with Israel in particularly grisly manner in order to deter other Arabs from helping the Jewish State prevent terror attacks.

Execution of children for "helping" Israel.

Will the State Dept reward the Palestinians with $1,000,000
for each execution PROVING that they are NOTHING but terrorists?

or will the State Dept DEMAND the Palestinians turn over the murderers of Americans?

Uh-oh. I guess this means that the member states of the European Union will condemn these sentences, and all such sentences of death passed by "Palestinian" authorities, just as they condemned the death sentence on the murderer Ira Einhorn, who lived more than 20 years in public exile in France.

"Execution of children for "helping" Israel."

Can't be true. Justice Kennedy says the U.S. is the only nation left in the world that executes children. SCOTUS wouldn't lie.

You are kidding right? The US, Israel, and UK don't even execute terrorists, and they give medals to people who help stop terrorists.

The PA doesn't publicly support terrorists either, but by executing Arabs who help Israel stop terrorists, it shows that it actually does support terrorists.

The PA shows itself to be the lying murderous organization that it is. Trying to equate them and what they are doing with the US or any other Western country is both stupid and absurd. There is no comparison.

whats ridiculous about it? Are you that naive? What about Jonathon Pollard? or Ames? Do you advocate the execution of american traitors? If you do, dont even attempt to argue my point because the hypocrisy would be overwhelming. One mans terrorist is anothers freedom fighter. You are looking at it at a US perspective and not a Palestinian one.

I do not advocate any terrorist in any form, however, it is logical for the PA to execute anyone they beleive is feeding israel information. And, you do not even know what the terms of their prosecution was. You are just speculating.

What an original idea... What if the US adopted that jurisprudential model for those caught helping terrorist nations??? That would wake them up.

"What about Jonathon Pollard? or Ames?"

Neither were exposing American terrorists because guess what? There are no American terrorists.

No, I don't think we should execute traitors, I don't even think they should be jailed. I think they should be deported and barred from entering the country ever again.

You said; "One mans terrorist is anothers freedom fighter."

So you approve of the Palestinian terror tactic of killing innocent civilians. Presumably these civilians are enslaving the poor freedom fighters in your mind. That you imagine that this is possible shows just how distorted from reality your world view is.

Just so as to be clear. Freedom fighters fight military targets and politicians. Terrorists kill innocent women and children.

Freedom fighters=good, noble / Terrorist=bad, ignoble

See how easy that is?

What does their "treason" consist of? They cooperated with the Israelis to prevent terrorist attacks.

Isn't that what Abu Mazen is required to do as part of the "peace process"? He should hang himself first.

this is the man who the Israelis insanely have given control over the Temple Mount. He should be expelled from Jerusalem.

Does the article mention the execution of under age / children? It does say that 5 arab 'men' will be the first to go, actually sounds like a good start....

Guess it depends on who the man is....moral relativism is not reality

Truth is truth even if no one believes it and a lie is a lie even if everyone believes it.

How can we (USA) be giving money to the PA? Although I understand the strategy behind it, it's mindbending.

And the General who is going to work with the PA to try to start turning the Palestinians around has a mindbending job ahead of him. I wonder if, situations and time constraints really considered, he'll be able to manage to admin the reprogramming of so many kids who've had so much hatred drilled into them--even in their schools.

The differnce between good and bad is subject to ideology.

Pollards actions exposed US spies in the eastern bloc that were there to undermine Soviet power. Under the soviets, that could be considered terrorism post 9/11.

I knew you'd try to correllate my comments with justifying terrorism, such juvenile tactics.

"Pollards actions exposed US spies in the eastern bloc that were there to undermine Soviet power. Under the soviets, that could be considered terrorism post 9/11."

Not even close. Spy's are legitimate military targets. Exposing them, while certainly bad for the US, is part of a counter spy's job. Pollard killed absolutely NO innocent civilians.

"I knew you'd try to correlate my comments with justifying terrorism, such juvenile tactics."

If you equate the killing of innocent civilians as the PA does with the legitimate killing of terrorists and military targets as western countries do, then of course you are trying to justify terrorism. Why else would you try such a pathetic ploy? That tactic may work over at DU but it doesn't fly here. You might as well give it up.

lol, please.... you are saying you'd allow an enemy of the state to be alive and help our rivals?

Countless enemies of the state are alive and helping our rivals. Many live and work in the US. Whether they are punished or not depends on what they do.

If they kill innocent people like cowardly terrorists, then of course they will be executed.

If they attack a US military target, they will be captured and held until hostilities are over, as is the case of those in Guantanamo Bay.

If they recruit terrorists or advocate terrorism they will, hopefully, be deported, and if they simply equate the terroristic PA authority with the legitimate actions of western governments as you do, they will be tolerated.

We are not murderous thugs who execute people simply because they are our enemies. That is how the PA operates.

Maybe you fail to see but the so-called Palestinians are showing that they dont want peace and still hate the Jews!

Collaberating with Israel according to the "Palestinians" is seeing an Israeli and not killing them on the spot!

Maybe when Iraqi police recruits are killed in Iraq and accused of treason we should look at it through a Bin Laden perspective!

listen, i know what the palestinian actions are. I am 100% pro israeli, however, i can see why any govt would execute traitors. Dont look at it from our side. We'd execute our traitors.

On a side note while the US does not deliberately target civilians their is no such thing as a "Humane War". In all wars civilians get killed and many times in massive numbers ex. Hiroshima. To think that you can have a war without civilians casualties is foolish.

Nearly all the enemies we have fought in the past have shown no regard for civilian casualties, and until recently civilian casualties did not count over the lives of our troops. The problem with the current War is we are more concerned about damaging a Mosque then killing the enemy using the Mosque as a base.

"To think that you can have a war without civilians casualties is foolish."

Of course. The difference is, generally speaking, western countries don't deliberately kill civilians. Islamic terrorists do.

you said; "Nearly all the enemies we have fought in the past have shown no regard for civilian casualties, and until recently civilian casualties did not count over the lives of our troops"

This is not quite true. Civilians have always held different status from combatants. It is true that many civilians have been killed both intentionally and unintentionally during war, but when they are killed intentionally, that is almost always seen as a war crime.

Historically, killing non combatants intentionally has almost always been done for terroristic, rather than strategic purposes. Dresden, Nagasaki, Hiroshima, being notable exceptions.

Terrorists will argue that terrorism IS a valid strategy, however civilized people generally disagree. If we didn't, the US is powerful enough that it could wipe every Muslim from the face of the earth, or at least very close to it. Ethical behavior prevents us from considering the murder of innocents to be a valid strategy however, so we don't.

The PA doesn't publicly support terrorists either,

Actually the PA very openly supports terrorists. City squares are named after them, soccer teams in schools are named after them, trophies for the winners are named after terrorists and the people that hand the trophies out are PA representatives who present the trophies by having the surviving family members of suicide bombers personally say something and hand the trophy to the winning "martyr" team. There are Music videos like MTV on the PA TV stations glorifying "martyrs". Only I think they are Martyr TV not Music TV.

Even the crossword puzzle's in the "funny papers" have different suicide bombers names in them. The challenge is not to see where the PA supports terrorism, the challenge is to find some place besides western news media meetings where they do not support terrorism.
