Proposal: Criminalize Contact with the PA

MK Nissan Slomiansky (Jewish Home) submitted a bill on Friday, which would not only stop all diplomatic relations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority on an official level - and enact fines and prison time for lawbreakers - but also equate the PA with Hamas, a well-known terror organization, according to the Ma'ariv daily. The proposal followed this week's Hamas-Fatah unity pact.
