(NEWS) Saudi Sheikh Tries To Buy Israeli Land Using Straw Men

"A common concern within Israel is that Arab tycoons from the Gulf as well as Arabs from other countries around the world will try to purchase lands in Israel from farmers who are undergoing financial difficulties. According to Roni Cohen, head of the Yavne’el Local Council in Northern Israel, this concern might be more real than originally thought.

During an interview with Arutz 7 on Monday, Cohen described a visit he received from a Jew who presented himself as a real estate agent seeking to buy some lands from the Galilee town of Yavne’el. Only after long inquiries by Cohen was the agent’s true purpose revealed: he was seeking to purchase lands in the name of a Saudi sheikh who wishes to 'reclaim lands' [from the infidels, ed.] as the agent put it."
