One of the 13 Palestinians deported from the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem in May 2002 was arrested Tuesday in Belgium on suspicion of participating in a number of robberies in which more than $250,000 were stolen.
Khalil Mohammed Abdullah al-Nawara received asylum in Belgium following the siege on the church.
Sounds like he didn't learn much from his days in one of the holiest sites in all Christendom.
Let's put it this way...if a Belgian had taken hostages and weapons into the Kaaba, Mecca's holiest shrine...what do you think the odds are of him being offered asylum in, say, Jordan?
Hell, what are the odds of him coming out alive?
