1) A Palestinian man has been sentenced to death by hanging for the “crime” of selling land to Jews.
Will the people who endlessly denounce Israel for its supposed interference with “Palestinian rights” have anything to say about the rights of this Palestinian man?
I think you know the answer.
2) Palestinian military forces are now being trained–at a cost of tens of millions of dollars to American taxpayers–by United States personnel.
Why on earth should we assist the development of a military which shields a regime under which atrocities such as the one above are a matter of policy?
Note also: The Obama administration is requesting changes to U.S. law which would permit aid to continue flowing to the Palestinian Authority even if officials backed by Hamas become part of a unified Palestinian government. (Since Hamas has been designated as a terrorist organization, aid would not be permitted under U.S. law as it stands.)
