Yemeni Muslim condemned to death for sending email to Olmert

In Yemen, they have a new kind of 'honor crime': Sending an email to Israel's Prime Minister.
A Yemini court on Monday sentenced to death a Muslim for allegedly writing to outgoing Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and offering to spy for Israel. Two other men were sentenced to three and five years in prison.

All three denied the charges, and Bassam al-Haidari, who faces death, yelled after the court decision, “This is an unfair ruling. You have sentenced me without any proof of these accusations.”

The court agreed with charges that al-Haidari e-mailed Prime Minister Olmert, who allegedly replied favorably to an offer to spy for Israel.

“We are the Organization of Islamic Jihad and you are Jews, but you are honest, and we are ready to do anything," he supposedly wrote. Prosecutors testified that the Prime Minister wrote back to al-Haidari, “"We are ready to support you to become an obstacle in the Middle East. We will support you as an agent.”

The three men were arrested last summer for spreading false reports that the Organization of Islamic Jihad group carried out an attack on the United States embassy in Yemen that killed 19 people. Al-Qaeda later took responsibility for the twin bombings.
The three men are all in their 20's, and on their arrest the President of Yemen announced that they had broken up 'an Islamist terrorist cell with links to Israeli intelligence.'

There are 400 Jews left in Yemen.

A Muslim accused of the terrible crime of writing to Ehud Olmert! Now, why in the world would that be that he would know how to contact Israel's Prime Minister? The man must have amazing powers of Satanic seduction. The Arabs believe the Jews can get any one anywhere and corrupt Islamic fidelity. Yeah, sure.

Its all Olmert's fault!
