Man arrested for 'cursing God'
QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Palestinian police arrested a man on Thursday for "cursing God" while arguing with his father in Qalqiliya.

Police responded to a call reporting a fight between a father and son in the northern West Bank town, officials said. A police report said the father called police to break up the fight after his son "cursed God."

Police took the man, who was not identified, into custody in accordance with Article 273 of the Jordanian Penal Code, which criminalizes insulting the religious feelings of other persons or their religious faith, officials said.

The penalty could result in a jail term of between 1-3 years, according to the code.

6. But it's a- ok to...
to post cartoons that mock Jews

to have textbooks that call Jews " pigs and apes"

to have children shows that glorify killing Jews.

to have a mickey mouse wanna-be telling children to grow up and become martyrs by killing Jews

to have media praise hitler and the 3rd Reich

to have mullahs calling Jews a false religion that deserves to be destroyed.


Yep, seems the PA has it al figured out.
