Israel sentences Palestinian soldier as a criminal

As often happens, a Beersheba court slapped Mohammed Mehera of the PRC with a thirty-five-year prison term for terrorist activity and participating in the murder of a Jewish soldier.

The court ruling represents Israeli schizophrenia. Those Arabs are heroes, not criminals. They are soldiers fighting vastly superior forces. They can be killed in action or detained as POWs, but there is no moral basis for sentencing them as criminals.
