A Palestinian Authority court in Ramallah on Monday sentenced Issam Akel, a Palestinian American and a resident of East Jerusalem, to life in prison.

In November, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman called on Ramallah to release Akel.

“The Pal Authority has been holding US citizen Isaam Akel in prison for ~2 months,” Friedman tweeted on November 28. “His suspected ‘crime’? Selling land to a Jew. Akel’s incarceration is antithetical to the values of the US & to all who advocate the cause of peaceful coexistence. We demand his immediate release.”

There we go again, trying to impose foreign values on the Arabs . . .

If Palestinians want to impose a life sentence on an Arab who sells lands to Jews, they have every right to do so!

If my memory serves me correct, you didn't have that outlook when the Saudis killed a Saudi in their Consulate.  Strange.

The above aside, while he is a US Citizen, (unknown if he is a natural born of naturalized) there are laws that need to be obeyed even by American citizens when they travel to other countries.  Contrary to popular belief, even American citizens carrying a Black Diplomatic Passport need to adhere to foreign laws or face the consequences.  There are very few people with true Diplomatic immunity unless initially declared by this government.

Hopefully, he will be released by sufficient diplomatic pressure being exerted, but it will take time.

Your memory is faulty.

No need to apologize-- we all have lapses of memory from time to time! :-)

While "When in Rome...." may be advisable, the acceptance of the "Judenrein" intentions of the Palestinians for their intended State echoes that of Adolph Hitler, and the hypocrites accuse Israel of Apartheid when Israel's population is 20% Arab/Muslim who have the same rights as Israeli Jews.
