Arab justice

JPost reports the execution by Arafat's "justice system" of a mentally ill Arab who raped his grandmother and killed two other elderly women. Personally, I am in favor of the death penalty in general. And I have no faith whatsoever in "Palestinian" justice.

But can you picture the international outcry if this very same item had been reported about Israel? Yet I will be very surprised if it even sees the light of day in the news services--let alone if it is protested by the pious protectors of human rights in Europe and elsewhere who daily take Israel to task for imagined offences.
