The Hamas Terrorist Regime has a Criminal System and (Gasp) It’s Abusive

Unsurprisingly, major Iranian news sources did not pick up the story.

Let the record show that a Human Rights Watch report on Hamas “justice” was issued Wednesday. It’s downloadable from the HRW site (here).

In its brief summary, entitled “Human Rights Watch reports on ‘severe’ Hamas abuse of Palestinians” (Associated Press, September 3, 2012), A.P. says that “Hamas’ security forces in Gaza are committing severe abuses, including torture of detainees, arrests without warrants, forced confessions, unfair trials and mock executions.”

Egypt’s Al-Ahram expands the list of Hamas abuses, adding arbitrary arrests, and failure to inform relatives of the whereabouts of detainees, arrest, abuse and torture of lawyers, using military courts to try civilians, and putting to death several prisoners after military trial verdicts though there was “credible evidence they had been tortured.”

In six hours, there have been similar reports in most of the major news channels, as you would expect: “Torture part of Gaza justice system” (Brisbane Times‎); “Gazans face ‘serious abuses’ in criminal justice system” (BBC World); “Hamas slammed over ‘torture, unfair trials (France 24) and so on. The embarrassing charges against the thuggish Hamas regime don’t seem to have been reported at all by any of the major online Iranian news services. Not ABNA, not FARS News Agency, not Islamic Republic News Agency, not Tehran Times. We’re open to readers’ suggestions as to why… but we’re not offering prizes.

  1. Tim Upham says:

    Has this tough as nails criminal justice systems stopped Gaza from being a haven for drug smuggling? Drugs are smuggled through the tunnels that Hamas gets tax revenue off of. Its been the Moslem Brotherhood government in Cairo that has closed them too. Maybe Hamas can raise money by collecting service fees and taxes from Israeli customers coming to an airport in Gaza to fly out fresh fruit and flowers overnight to markets in Europe. I wonder if these photographs of hanging bodies is really going to stop the drug smuggling? Drug smugglers can find other ways, but can Hamas find another way from their closed criminal tunnels?
