“State of Palestine” Constitution Institutes Islamic Law
Well, don’t we have a lot to look forward to in 2004. The Palestinian Authority has adopted an official constitution based on Koranic “Sharia” Law, rendering all people living in the PA subject to Islamic Law.
The PA Constitution begins by stating that the territory of the “State of Palestine” is an “indivisible unit based upon its borders on the even of June 4, 1967” – which include, of course, all of Jerusalem and many of its Jewish suburbs. It also states, “All residents of this territory shall be subject to Palestinian law exclusively.”
(Equally improbable is Article 3, which states, “Palestine is a peace loving state that condemns terror, occupation and aggression”. ROFL!)
The fact that the PA has adopted Sharia Islamic Law, based on the Iranian and Saudi Arabian models, means that Palestinian Christians will no longer be able to practice their faith openly. The United States refuses to acknowledge this development, despite the fact that it was US AID that financed the formulation of the PA State Constitution.
Instead, officials of US AID have fostered a constitution that envisions creation of the Islamic totalitarian state of Palestine, completely devoid of religious freedom and human rights. At present, no church can operate in Bethlehem without Islamic approval. This is the legacy of what US financial AID has facilitated.
Now, when Jew hating Palestinian Arabs, the left-wing terrorist apologists, and their allies shout “Zionism equals Racism”, it will be incumbent upon them to defend why it is okay for the kleptocracy “Palestine” to not allow religous faiths except for Islam. They will not be able to defend the indefensible. And their denial and defense of The Big Lie will reveal exactly who the real racists are.
