A new website being promoted in Arab media allows Arabs to buy land in "Palestine." Just pick the plot you want, pay 20% with your credit card, fill out some paperwork, and voilà!

The Canadian-born son of Palestinian refugees is successfully running a business which allows Palestinians to buy land in the area, reported the Guardian on Monday.

Khaled Sabawi launched his company, Tabo (the Ottoman term for “title deed”), three years ago. It is based on his father’s wish to help Palestinians buy Palestinian land, a dream that most of the estimated five million Palestinian refugees would deem impossible.

The Tabo webpage invites potential buyers in Jerusalem , West Bank and from abroad to embark upon a virtual tour of every plot of registered land in the area. Plots are sold for prices ranging from $13,000 to $80,000 and can be paid off over a period of three years.
When you go to the Tabo webpage you can learn:
For the first time, you have the opportunity to make your connection to the holy land a reality. Since time immemorial, the ancient and historic lands of Palestine have been among the most coveted in the world. For thousands of years, kings and paupers, emperors and peasants, Popes and pilgrims alike have come to Palestine for salvation, for redemption, for fulfillment, and for riches. Palestine’s unprecedented historical significance is a testament to its value as a land.

To Palestinians worldwide, owning land in Palestine is priceless. Land represents a Palestinian’s identity, his roots, and his proof of existence. It is his ancestry, his forefather’s legacy and children’s birthright. It is the place from which he came, and to which he shall return. Now UCI makes it possible for Palestinians to reclaim their legacy, reconnect with the land of their ancestors, and own a piece of the homeland, for them, for their children, and for generations to come.
When you start reading the fine print, something interesting appears:
Once you receive your UCI Land Purchase LPOA, the following steps must be followed:

  • You must print and sign your LPOA.

Once signed you are required to:

  • Scan and save a clear electronic copy of your signed LPOA.
  • Scan and save a clear electronic copy of your valid passport. If you are West Bank/Gaza/Jerusalem ID holder, or a Palestinian with an Israeli ID, please scan a clear electronic copy of your ID.
When they say a "Palestinian with an Israeli ID," they are excluding all Palestinian Jews.

In other words, an Israeli Arab can buy land in the West Bank - but an Israeli Jew cannot.

Israeli Jews legally buying land are evil "settlers" and merit being boycotted, stoned, firebombed and shot., and their homes must be dismantled and their hard work and investment on the land they bought must be forfeited. Even if their families had lived in the area for centuries, the land is simply not available for them. Because they are Jews wishing to return to their ancestral lands.

Israeli Arabs buying land there, on the other hand, are welcome! Because they are - not Jews!

Sounds like apartheid, doesn't it?

I think we need to call a UNHRC session. We must inform Amnesty about this blatant discrimination. Human Rights Watch will be most interested. No doubt they will jump right on it. If the PA is found to be involved in this project, they should be boycotted.

Because such blatant discrimination is ugly, and cannot be accepted. Right?

UPDATE: I wonder what would happen if an Israeli Jew with an Arabic name would buy some land. Might be worth the money just to find out!
