Hamas executes two Palestinians for working for Israel

Jun 22 2013, 8:18pm CDT | by

Gaza, June 23 (IANS) The Hamas group, which controls the Gaza Strip, has executed two Palestinians accused of collaborating with Israel, the group said in a statement.

Gaza, June 23 — The Hamas group, which controls the Gaza Strip, has executed two Palestinians accused of collaborating with Israel, the group said in a statement.

The two Palestinian "informants", aged 43 and 49, were hanged to death Saturday, Xinhua cited the statement by the interior ministry of the Hamas government as saying.

The two were accused of "spying for a hostile foreign party and attempted murder", the statement said.

The hanging took place "in accordance with our religion, Sharia and Palestinian law".

Hamas said the executions were aimed to "preserve the societal security".

In March, Hamas launched a drive to combat collaboration with Israel and promised amnesty to any informant who turns himself in willingly.

As many as 16 Palestinians have been executed in Gaza for spying and leaking information to Israel since Hamas seized the territory in 2007.

The group said Israeli airstrikes based on the leaked information have killed "a number of children, citizens and fighters" over the past 10 years.

Saturday's executions were the first in 2013.

Palestinian law stipulates that the head of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) approve the death sentences before they are implemented. However, Hamas implements the executions without the approval of West Bank-based President Mahmoud Abbas, whose forces lost control of Gaza in 2007.

Ed Miliband Reveals That He Is Unable to Sit on a Chair

Over the course of the next 24 hours, international news outlets will mindlessly report that the UK Parliament has "voted in favour/against a motion to recognise the State of Palestine". And that would be true, save for the fact that tonight's backbench business debate led by Grahame Morris MP is non-binding, and non-sensical. The anti-Semitic Labour MP, who is also the "chair" of the Labour Friends of Palestine group, has poppe ...

Monkey Cage: What’s next for the Syrian regime’s non-state allies

Sep 10 2014 9:34am CDT | Source: Post Politics: - The Washington Post

Since the late 1960s, the Syrian government has backed a range of militant organizations in the Middle East, from an assortment of leftist Palestinian factions in the 1960s and 1970s, to the Lebanese Amal movement in the late 1970s and 1980s, and to Hezbollah and Hamas beginning in the early 1990s. In recent years, Syria has provided crucial funding, weapons and training to the latter two organizations in particular, often in concert w ...

New York Times Calls 60-Year-Old Israeli Border Community a 'Settlement'

Aug 28 2014 2:38pm CDT | Source: Big Government

The August 28 print issue of The New York Times dismisses several established Israeli farming communities, terming them "settlements" as if they are somehow an impermanent incursion into the territory near Gaza. Sporting a headline that reads "In Israel’s South, Families Worry About the Future of Settlements Near Gaza," the August 28 article in the print version of the paper talks of how Israelis that l ...

The U.S. Jewish Community, Amoral Familism and the Crisis of Palestine

Aug 28 2014 10:59am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

We're all thankful for a truce in Gaza as long as it lasts. Five hundred children have been killed in the last few weeks. A similar number of Palestinians have been killed in this round as Israelis killed by Arab terrorism in the history of the State of Israel. A traditional Jewish response to this would be: "He who destroys a human life is as if he had destroyed the whole world." My own rabbi said a ...

Standing in the ashes

Aug 24 2014 3:13pm CDT | Source: WND

If in the future America sees another catastrophe perpetrated by terrorists and commentators in the media start asking how could this happen, think back to what I’m about to say. America has a failed foreign policy! I don’t believe for a minute that Iran has stopped working on a nuclear weapons program. Iran supports Hamas and ISIS, ISIL and/or the Islamic State. Iran has given weapons and financial support to both of these groups, although currently ISIS is the richest terrorist group on ...
