The U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights has urged the Hamas terrorist organization to halt plans for more executions without a fair trial.

Hamas Plans More Executions to Stop Collaboration with Israel

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Hamas is planning to put an end to collaboration with Israel by its citizens by simply killing them, perhaps by hanging them for the public to see. The policy of simply killing those who try to help Israel with information on intended terrorist attacks would end the phenomenon, according to Hamas’ thinking.

Executions are not new for Hamas, but the terrorist organization that rules Gaza now is boasting that it will return to the policy, with one leader urging public hangings.

Hamas managed to revolt the world last year by publicly executing several alleged collaborators and then dragging bodies tied to motorcycles, through the public streets.

Salah Addin Abu Sharkh, director of internal security at the Interior Ministry, said the government had “a clear goal and several means to eradicate this dangerous epidemic,” including executing convicted collaborators.

An anti-collaboration campaign, from mid-March to mid-May netted several suspects, and two men are on death row.

Hamas court official Khaled el-Batash told a Hamas media outlet that courts should be allowed carry out their own rulings by employing police to publicly hang collaborators.

Human Rights Watch Turns on Hamas for Executions of Collaborators

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Human Rights Watch, which usually has Israel in its crosshairs, has turned its fury on the Hamas terrorist organization for failing to investigate the gory public execution of seven Gaza Arabs accused and sentenced to death without a trial for helping Israel.

Hamas rejected the criticism, saying it was biased and adding that it has investigated the killings four months ago. Armed Hamas goons murdered the suspects and dragged their bodies through Gaza streets to the cheers of passersby.

The Hamas regime has executed at least 38 people since seizing power in 2007 after a deadly terrorist militia clash with its rival Fatah faction, headed by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Hamas on Manhunt to Execute Israeli Collaborators

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

The Hamas regime in Gaza has launched an all-out manhunt to round up collaborators with Israel, most of whom usually end up executed.

Hamas interior ministry official Mohammed Lafi said, “We monitor the tools and techniques used by the Israeli occupation to recruit collaborators and we are working to dismantle them,” according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency.

He claimed that that the number of collaborators has decreased in recent years because of “rehabilitation programs,” which may partly true or may be a spooky euphemism  for simply sentencing them to death in courts or executing them without trial.

Hamas courts have handed down 30 death sentences in the past six years, mostly against collaborators, and Hamas executed at least eight men last November during the Pillar of Defense counterterrorist operation that ended the latest barrage of missile attacks on Israel.

The executions are brutal.

Last November, masked gunmen, possibly from the rival Salafist terrorist gang, grabbed six alleged informers out of their vehicle and shot them dead, one by one.

People screamed, “Spy! Spy!” and some onlookers spit on the corpses.

One of the bodies, as seen in the video below, was chained to a motorcycle that dragged it through Gaza City’s main streets.

Two other Gaza residents also were murdered the same week, one of them shot dead in public, while the body of the other was found in a garbage can. Human rights groups issued a condemnation of the executions and then dropped the matter.

Israeli intelligence is dependent on informers from Gaza, who have helped prevent hundreds of terrorist attacks and have passed on to Israel information on the location of rocket launching cells.

Intelligence information to counter Hamas terrorism goes far beyond Gaza. The Egyptian newspaper Al-Youm Al-Sabea reported this week that Hamas refused to accept a shipment of 28 advanced long-range missiles from Libya because of fears that Israeli agents placed tracking devices in the weapons.
