Eretz Yisrael Time

Almost 2 years ago I wrote a post (3a) that discussed as an incidental, the fact that the Palestinians steal some 30,000 Israeli cars a year.

I wondered at the time how many cars in the PA were actually stolen. As of 2 years ago 300,000 cars were stolen and brought into the PA, but only 122,000 cars were registered in PA DMV.

Which meant that some 50% of the stolen cars in the PA weren't registered (while the other 50% of stolen cars were).

There is an amusing article in YNET (of all places) that actually discusses the actual registration process where stolen cars become "legal" cars in the PA and specifically cars belonging to Palestinians government officials.

To prove his point the authors mentioned the case of Rav Ovadiah Yosef - his car was recently stolen.

Someone in our government called someone is their government and the car was returned in a few hours.
"How did they know where to find it? That’s very simple. The stolen vehicles are registered over there. The thieves pay fees. Everything is orderly."

From what I've read on this issue of Rav Ovadia's stollen car was at the time of it being stollen, it was tracked by a built in GPS; thus, they were able to locate it right away.

Who got paid off for what I do not know.
