JD: Quite ironic what the Sheikh who’s saying the Mufti of Jerusalem is saying isn’t it?
DW: What this Arab said a few days ago is nothing new. First of all under Jordanian law it’s a capital crime for a Muslim to sell property to a non-Muslim. That policy was adapted first of all by the PLO and then later by the Palestinian Authority where by it’s a capital crime to sell any property not only to a Jew but to anybody who is a non-Muslim. Primarily since 1967 when we came back to Judea and Samaria Arab land dealers have been murdered by other Arabs in the PLO and the Palestinian Authority, it’s nothing new. They call this religious law according to the Quran. They try to use this as a deterrent to prevent Arabs from selling property to Jews but it still happens.
