Arab land dealer who sold to Israelis: ‘I fear for my life
Claims senior PA officials have themselves sold property to Jews, appeals to Israeli authorities and philanthropists to help him. One day after the Palestinian Authority reaffirmed the death penalty for Palestinians who sell land to Israelis, one of the most prominent Arab land dealers called on the Israeli authorities to help him and other Palestinians whose lives are at risk. The veteran land dealer, who asked not to be identified by name – although his identity is known to the PA and many Arab residents in Jerusalem – also appealed to settler groups and American Jewish millionaire Irwin Moskowitz for assistance.

The PA “has many agents in east Jerusalem who serve as informants and enforcers,” he said.
