in symbolic trial

Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Palestinian Authority TV broadcast a news story about the trial and symbolic hanging of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, which took place during an event organized by Fatah for the youth of the village Kafar Qaddum in the West Bank. The symbolic trial tried and convicted Netanyahu of "war crimes against humanity" and sentenced him to death by hanging.


The following is from the PA TV main evening news story, which described the event but did not show any pictures of the symbolic hanging. The picture above of the "hanging" was posted on the Israeli-Arab website panet.co.il.

PA TV reporter: "With these brief and concise words, the children of Kafar Qaddum commenced the trial of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu - the symbolic trial which convicted him of carrying out war crimes against humanity in the Palestinian territories, confiscation and theft of land and building settlements on it - as a symbolic image of the end of the occupation...
Thus the people and children of Kafar Qaddum managed to judge Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, after convicting him of carrying out war crimes against humanity, and to sentence him to death by hanging, meaning that the occupation is going to end, sooner or later."
