Two Life Terms Plus 58 Years for Arab Who Killed Two with a Rock

A Palestinian Authority rock-throwing terrorist was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences and another 58-year sentence for the murders of an Israeli man and his infant son ear Kiryat Arba two years ago.

Waal al-Araja, whose wages as a PA security officer are partly paid for by American and European Union aid, was sentenced Tuesday by the Ofer Military Court for the killing of dual Israeli-American citizen Asher Palmer and his infant son Yonatan in September 2011.

Palmer’s car overturned after a rock crashed through the windshield. Police originally tried to sweep the attack under a diplomatic rug and determined that the crash on Route 60 near Kiryat Arba an accident, but the publication of photographic evidence of a bloodstained rock on the car forced police to investigate a second time, when they agreed that the Palmers were victims of a terrorist attack.

Al-Araja admitted during the trial that he threw the rocks, but said he did not intend to kill anyone. The judges said in their verdict earlier this month that Al-Araja understood the harm that throwing rocks could cause and that he intended to harm his victims.

  1. if we returned live fire to these killers this situation wouldn’t happen.if there is ever another prisoner exchange this killer could go free.

  2. Samuel Ramos says:

    I agree! In some rock throwing incidents, the use of Lethal Force is definitely justified!

  3. Good. Justice is done.

  4. Les Le Gear says:

    The scumbag should have been put down like a rabid dog. Meanwhile if the savages kidnap an Israeli soldier again, the scumbag could be freed in anouther 1000 to one exchange. Kill him!
