'Palestinian' gets 6 months in jail for liking Facebook post

If you're a 'Palestinian' and you are reading this blog, I would suggest that you either read in silence, or send me your comments for anonymous posting.

For the second time in a week, a 'Palestinian' has been sentenced to jail time, this time for six months, for liking a Facebook post that was critical of a 'Palestinian' official.
Anas Ismail, 29, of Salfit, near Nablus, was found guilty of “libel and slander.”

Ismail is the second Palestinian to be imprisoned for Facebook activities in the past few days.

He was sentenced to prison on the same day another PA court in Bethlehem sentenced Palestinian journalist to one year in prison for sharing a photo on Facebook that compared PA President Mahmoud Abbas to a villain and the spy of French colonial authorities in a Syrian drama.

Ismail said that the PA’s Preventive Security force detained him for 17 days before he was sentenced to six months in prison.

He said he was accused of clicking “Like” on a status that called for sacking former PA Communications minister Mashhour Abu Daka.

Ismail told the West Bank-based Wattan TV station that he had been summoned for interrogation 10 times in the past six months because of the “Like” on Facebook.

He pointed out that he had been sentenced in absentia last Thursday.
And you wonder why so many 'Palestinians' would rather live in Israel?

Then again, I would guess that if asked, many non-'Palestinian' Arabs and Muslims would also rather live in Israel

Wasn't Nadia Matar arrested a few years ago for "insulting a public official"?
