Hevron: Arab businessman who took part in Bahrain workshop arrested by the PA
The Palestinian Authority on Saturday arrested an Arab businessman from Hevron who took part in the US-led economic workshop in Bahrain.
According to Arab reports, PA’s intelligence forces arrested Salah Abu Miala immediately upon his return from Bahrain to Hevron.
The Palestinian Authority security forces planned to arrest other businessmen, including Ashraf Ghanem, also from Hevron, who participated in the conference, but they apparently managed to flee from the PA into Israeli territory.
Despite the absence of official Israeli and PA representatives, about 15 Arab businessmen from Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem attended the workshop in Bahrain and spoke publicly with Israelis.
The PA officially boycotted the conference and declared three days of rage in protest against the US-sponsored economic summit in Bahrain as part of the Mideast plan, which calls for $50 billion in investments for the PA and neighboring Arab countries.
While Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE are drawing publicly closer to Israel, Muslim terror-fans went out the streets in Judea-Samaria and Gaza to protest the normalization with the Jewish State.
In Iraq, a crowd stormed the Bahraini embassy late on Thursday night in protest at the Gulf State’s decision to host a US summit attended by Israeli businessmen.
Bahrainis terror-fans mopped up the entrance to the “Bahraini Society Against Normalization with Zionist Enemy” where an Israeli journalist won the internet posing for a selfie with an Israeli passport.
