The Convert

Meet Asaf Ben David, a palestinian who converted to Judaism, only to aid in palestinian terrorist attacks against Jews.

The Haifa District Court convicted Asaf Ben David, a Palestinian who converted to Judaism, of contact with a foreign agent and conspiring to aid the enemy.

The 39-year-old Ben David (originally Hussam Sawatmeh) was convicted of trying to help his brother Salah, an activist in Islamic Jihad, attain nitric acid for the purpose of preparing explosives.Ben David was born in the West Bank town of Kfar Tuba. However, after converting to Judaism he married a Jewish woman and moved to the Haifa area. The youngest of his four children is currently serving in the Israel Defense Forces.

According to the court’s ruling, Ben David was in contact with his brother regarding the supply of nitric acid between October 2006 and until his brother’s death in December of 2006. Following his brother’s death, Ben David apparently returned to Islam.

According to the verdict, while mourning his brother’s death Ben David lamented the fact that he did not have a chance to supply him with the acid before he died.

It’s kind of like those men who have sex change operations to become women, only to become a lesbian. I’m left scratching my head.

Update: Here’s more on Ben David.
