One small Detail- the Israeli was arrested for the murder of the Palestinian- this would happen (NEVER) in the Arab world

Reader comment on item: Instant Retribution in the Middle East

Sad to say, in a democratic civilized society like Israel, the only one in the ME, the ISRAELI driver was questioned as a suspect for the murder of the PALESTINIAN who tried to murder the Israeli in his car.
