Main Question or Discussion Point

The Magistrates Court of Jerusalem convicted Shahar Dvir Zeliger of membership in a "terrorist organisation" which planned attacks on Arab civilians.

Now all we need is for the courts to look at the IDF as well.

And courts to look at the "Palestinian" terrorists as well.

They do. However, as those terrorists are not part of any Palestinian civil authority, they oly get penalised when caught. The IDF, however, is part of the Israeli civil authority, and is completely accessible to their judicial system. At least in theory.

You're welcome. However, the facts remain the facts. Fateh is not an arm of the PNA. Its members make up a good third of PNA seats, but that does not make it an arm of the PNA.

No, kat, I think Adam is saying since there is no such country as "Palestine," there is no authority to capture and punish criminals. But wait - isn't that what the PA is supposed to be? Don't they have police?

Kinda a double-edged sword, that "government" thing, huh? The only logical conclusion you can draw from the PA's inaction is that they are either unwilling or unable to handle the terrorists. Kinda takes the "A" out of "PA", doesn't it?

No, what I'm saying is that although Fateh members are involved with the PNA, the Fateh is not an arm of the PNA. Kat is a member of Physicsforums. But is she an arm of it? Is she somehow a formal part of its organisation, carrying out its tasks and such?

The PNA has never had very thorough control over anyone.
