Dan Williams forgets a little something

In a story about the Netanyahu government staying the eviction of Jews who had purchased and moved into a building in the city of Hebron so they might pursue legal action to protect their rights, Reuters correspondent Dan Williams provides some background on why it is so rare to see Jews buy land in the territories:
But Ramadan Awad, chief of Palestinian police in the city, denied the validity of any such deal, saying the building had more than 50 owners. The Palestinian Authority, which has limited self-rule in the West Bank, outlaws the sale of land to Israelis.
What Williams doesn't tell readers, is that the penalty to Palestinians for selling land to Jews, is death.

Just thought readers might like to familiarize themselves with the progressive Palestinian justice system.
