A Palestinian man who clicked “Like” on a Facebook status criticizing a Palestinian Authority official has been sentenced to six months in prison.Why would anyone want to compare Abbas to a spy for French authorities? Obvioulsy, because of insanity and the impression that their best cronies aren't good enough for them.
Anas Ismail, 29, of Salfit, near Nablus, was found guilty of “libel and slander.”
Ismail is the second Palestinian to be imprisoned for Facebook activities in the past few days.
He was sentenced to prison on the same day another PA court in Bethlehem sentenced Palestinian journalist to one year in prison for sharing a photo on Facebook that compared PA President Mahmoud Abbas to a villain and the spy of French colonial authorities in a Syrian drama.
This is one of the most telling examples of Orwellian thought control being conducted by the PLO, yet the MSM considers Israel the "oppressor", not the Islamists.
Update: Jonathan Tobin has more.
