Rabbi Shai Ohayon

Rabbi Shai Ohayon, 39, father of four children, was murdered on Wednesday in Petach by Khalil Abd al-Khaliq Dweikat, 46, an Arab from Shechem, who stabbed him repeatedly. Witnesses report that the killer calmly walked away from the scene of the crime into the custody of local police.

Why would a murderer act in such a manner? Not hard to understand. The Palestinian Authority enacted a law which grants a financial gratuity for life for anyone who murders a Jew . By PA law, that reward is provided to the killer and to the family of the killer- for life.

The background on the Palestinian Authority murder incentive law is readity available to the public and to the news media, which forgets to report that the PA continues to provide an incentive to murder any Jew at any time. Instead, the press was filled with discussion as to whether Khalil Abd al-Khaliq Dweikat was mentally unstable. The PA murder incentive law can be reviewed at the following site: The question for any entity which allocates funds to the PA is whether they will demand that the PAY FOR SLAY law be cancelled, as a condition for further aid to the PA.

  1. The USA has demanded that the PA’s PAY FOR SLAY law be cancelled as a condition for further aid to the PA? When will the UK, the EU and other civilised countries follow suit?

    Please read, share and encourage others to do the same. Many thanks.
