Hamas Executes “Operation Strangling Necks”

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

With Israel continuing to score major hits in Gaza, at least 25 Gazans suspected of collaboration with Israel are believed to have been killed by Hamas operatives in recent days Saturday evening, a 13-story building housing a massive Hamas command center was demolished by the IDF, with the army saying that only combatants were harmed in the operation. Last week three top Hamas operatives were killed in an airstrike by the Israeli Air Force, and yesterday’s hit was the latest indication of the IDF’s commitment to destroy Hamas and banish them from the Gaza strip.

Faced with mounting losses, the terror group appears to be venting its frustrations at on its own civilians, as it continues to execute what it claims are “informants” for Israel. Over Thursday and Friday, some 25 civilians were killed in what Hamas called “Operation Strangling Necks.”

News of Hamas’s latest attack on its own civilians reinforces the belief in Israel that the terror organization is the greatest enemy of the Gazan people. Member of Knesset Moti Yogev (Jewish Home) told Tazpit News Agency that the killings had little to do with internal security concerns: “The execution of Gaza residents, men and women, is cruelty that its purpose is to deter the populace,” he said. “There is nothing behind it in terms of real intelligence.”

The parliamentarian noted that those killed were given no opportunity to prove their innocence. “Many of these killings are nothing more than Hamas settling the score in incidental feuds or disputes that are completely unrelated to Israel.”

“Hamas is an organization of animals, similar to the Islamic State,” he continued. Echoing a similar statement made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Yogev pointed out that “the nation of Israel sanctifies life. Hamas sanctifies death.” As such, he explained, the blood of the Gazans is on their hands.

“The bottom line is that we will need to eliminate Hamas, whether in this war or the next. They are a danger to the nation of Israel and to mankind.”

Mordechai Kedar, professor of Arabic literature at Bar-Ilan University, believes that the executions are indeed a sign of tension within Hamas.

“They are afraid that Israel succeeded in penetrating the organization and recruiting a number of its activists as informants,” he noted.”They genuinely suspect that there are collaborators inside the organization. It destroys the confidence they have in each other.”

The scholar cited their lack of popularity in Gaza as another factor that may be fueling the anxiety of the Hamas leadership. “I know that even before Operation Protective Edge the majority in Gaza didn’t want them,” added Kedar. “They have no mercy towards anyone.”

The recent executions are an example of their inhumanity, Kedar said. “Whoever is suspected is executed without any judicial process. Even Amnesty International criticized them very severely,” he noted. “And Amnesty is not at all a pro-Zionist organization.”

Following ISIS Comparisons, Hamas Orders Halt to PUBLIC Executions

Sunday, August 24th, 2014

It turns out Hamas is worried about bad press, or perhaps it’s Qatar who is worried.

Whichever of the two is concerned more, Hamas is apparently finding it difficult to maintain media sympathy when the comparisons between ISIS and Hamas are simply undeniable.

Khaled Abu-Toameh reports that Hamas has given orders to end all executions in public squares and public places.

Based on the wording, Hamas’s executions of Gazan citizens won’t be ending, they’re just ending the executions in public.

UN Human Rights Chiefs Ask Hamas to Halt Executions

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

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

Navi Pillay added she is concerned over the torture of two men, both in their 20s, who later were sentenced to death and are to be publicly executes two prisoners, both men in their 20s

Forty others are on death, and most of them are accused of collaborating with Israel, of drug trafficking and murder.

“One absolute requirement is that the death penalty can only be imposed after a fair trial. This is currently not possible in Gaza, neither legally nor practically,” Pillay said.

 

 

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.
