Acting according to its prohibition to sell land to “enemies,” the PA thwarted a deal to transfer land to Israelis/Jews and arrested those involved.

Earlier this year, the Palestinian Authority (PA) Mufti ruled that Islam forbids selling land to “enemies,” as reported by Palestinian Media Watch. Doing so would be “treason” and “a sin.”

Now the Palestinian Authority is acting according to this prohibition. In cooperation with the PA’s General Prosecution, the PA’s Preventive Intelligence Force “succeeded in thwarting a deal for the illegal transfer of land” and arrested those involved.

“The [PA] Preventive Intelligence Force succeeded – through security cooperation, relying on intelligence information, surveillance on the ground, and intensive monitoring, and in legal coordination with the [PA] General Prosecution – in thwarting a deal for the illegal transfer of land (i.e., to Israelis/Jews) in the Hebron district… The Force succeeded in arresting those involved… and they were transferred to the legal system for the completion of the legal steps against them,” reported the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 31, 2018.

The Mufti emphasized the gravity of the sin of transferring land to non-Muslims a few months ago, explaining that it constitutes “heresy.” He made it clear that anyone guilty of such a land transfer is seen by Allah as similar to someone “who fight[s] Muslims because of their religion.”

Such a person is considered a “traitor” who has “left Islam” and should be “banished” and “excommunicated” – no one should “do business with him, marry him, or demonstrate friendliness to him,” and no one should “participate in his funeral, pray for him, or bury him in Muslim cemeteries,” he stated.

The arrests and statement of the PA Mufti reflect a 2014 decision of PA Chairman, Mahmoud Abbas, who “instituted life imprisonment with forced labor for the clandestine transfer, leasing or selling of lands to a hostile country or its citizens,” according to official PA TV, Oct. 21, 2014.

Life-Saving ATVs Stop Terrorists Before they Attack Innocent Israelis

Palestinian attackers have terrorized Israelis with stabbings, shootings, bombings and car-rammings throughout Israel, with no end in sight.

Specialized, state-of-the-art, compact, all-terrain ATVs that maneuver in tight spaces are Israel’s “secret weapon,” designed to pursue and capture terrorists BEFORE they attack. Life-saving ATVs are desperately needed to protect communities throughout Israel. Please donate generously!
