Former 'Palestinian Prime Minister' arrested
Former 'Palestinian Prime Minister' Abu Allah (Ahmad Qrei) was arrested for speeding
near Maaleh Adumim on Saturday. The car in which Abu Allah was traveling (yes, of course this poor 'Palestinian' has a Mercedes driven by a chauffeur) was caught going 145 kph (90 mph) in an 80 kph (50 mph) zone.
The car's driver ignored requests by Judea and Samaria police to stop, forcing them to block the road with a police car.
After being stopped, Qureia's car was held for roughly 2 hours as
passengers refused to open the doors or windows of the car, reports Kikar Shabbat.
Eventually with the involvement of General Eitan Dangot, Coordinator
of Government Activities in Judea and Samaria, the car was allowed to
continue. Qureia, the driver and another passenger were summoned for investigation
The Judea and Samaria-based Arab Ma'an News Agency initially claimed the former prime minister was arrested "for no particular reason."
This is not Qureia's first run-in with the law on the roads.
Qurei and the driver were detained for three hours, after which police
ordered them to appear before the police traffic division.
Qurei refused police requests to open his car window as he sat inside
the vehicle. It was only after the intervention of government
coordinator for activities in the territories, Maj. Gen. Eitan Dangot,
that Qurei was allowed to continue onward.
told the Ma'an news agency that Qurei refused to give police his or his
driver's identification papers. The incident will be among the topics
discussed during Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations on Sunday.
Maybe the 'peace negotiators' can reach a plea bargain for Abu Allah. After all, Livni has a thing for him (see above), and the 'peace negotiators' haven't been able to agree on anything else.
