Very unhealthy for Palestinians to sell land to Jews

Well, at least they're honest about it.

The Palestinian Authority - you know, the moderate terrorists as opposed to the real freaks in Hamas - have warned residents that they will be charged with high treason if they sell their land to a Jew:

The latest warning was issued on Wednesday by the Chief [Islamic] Judge of the Palestinian Authority, Sheikh Tayseer Rajab Tamimi, who reminded the Palestinians of an existing fatwa [religious decree] than bans them from selling property to Jews.

Sheikh Tamimi's warning came in response to reports that Jewish businessmen from the US had purchased 20 dunams of land from Palestinians on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.

Warning the Palestinians against engaging in "suspicious real estate deeds," the religious leader said that according to Islamic teachings it was a "grave sin" to sell houses and lands to Jews.

He said that the ban also applies to real estate agents or middlemen who are involved in such transactions.

He warned that anyone who ignores the warning would be punished in accordance with Islamic teachings and would also be ostracized by his community and family.

Sounds like a peace deal is right around the corner. If only that dope George Bush had put a little effort into it, the Palestinians and Jews would be holding hands and dancing around the maypole by this time.

Does this mean there won't be any Palestinian Welcome Wagons for new Jewish residents?
