The death sentence is obviously too harsh, but it's sad to see all the people here who thinK Israelis MUST have the right to buy land in Palestine. There are plenty of countries that have at time banned property sales to non-citizens of the country and obviously that applies even more if the potential buyers come from a hostile country. Israel has already stolen plenty of the West Bank from 'state land' and land expropriated for allegedly military purposes. It seems perfectly reasonable that the PA should try to prevent Pals selling land on which will be built settlements, which Israel will then eventually try to annexe.
