Palestinian Who Converted to Judaism Arrested, Badly Beaten by PA Police – Yifat Erlich
A 50-year-old Palestinian from Hebron in the West Bank, who converted to Judaism in Israel three weeks ago at a strict Haredi court, was arrested by Palestinian Authority security forces over two weeks ago while meeting with one of his children in PA territory and has been held in custody ever since. He said he was tortured on multiple occasions, which left his hands and feet badly burned.
According to Haim Perg, a leader of the Jewish community in Hebron, the man is the grandson of a Palestinian who helped save 26 Jews during the 1929 Hebron massacre. (Ynet News)
