Hamas hangs 2 Palestinians convicted of spying for Israel
[Jpost] Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason, leaders said they had hanged two Paleostinians found guilty of spying for Israel over a decade, making them the first to be executed since the end of a month-long amnesty for informants in April.
Sixteen Paleostinians have been executed in Gazoo for spying since Hamas seized the territory in 2007.
Hamas, which rejects any recognition of Israel as a legitimate state, says the executions are aimed at discouraging Paleostinians from impoverished Gazoo selling Israel information such as the whereabouts of top Death Eaters or weapons depots.
Human rights activists say such executions violate Paleostinian Authority law which says that any cases of this sort must be reviewed by PA President the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas
... a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial...
, but Hamas does not recognize the Western-backed Abbas as having authority in Gazoo.
