In the proud tradition of Yassar Arafat

From the Jerusalem Post:

In the first decision of its kind since he succeeded Yasser Arafat, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has ratified death sentences against three Palestinians found guilty of "collaboration" with Israel.

It is not clear when the three men, whose identities were not revealed, will be executed by firing squad.

However, senior PA officials told The Jerusalem Post that the three were Gaza Strip residents who had been convicted of "high treason" for tipping off Israeli security forces about the whereabouts of wanted gunmen.

He's talking peace with Israel, but authorizes the execution of three men who are accused of preventing the very thing he claims he's against. Sounds to me like the kind of stupidity Arafat was notorious for. So much for him being taken seriously.
