Hamas. Intimidation. Executions.


It seems that Hamas has been observing the most recent ceasefire and things have become quieter, but it’s only a week or so ago that 18 people were executed by Hamas for allegedly collaborating with the “enemy” (some reports give a number of 22 victims). What were the collaborators guilty of?

Maybe the following news report gives an indication.

Trapped in Gaza: How Hamas punishes reporters for the truth

GABRIELLE DEBINSKI, OR AVI-GUY AND TZVI FLEISCHER

THE AUSTRALIAN – JULY 31, 2014

HAMAS is not just targeting Israeli civilians, threatening Gazans and using them as humans shields.
It has another terror tactic: intimidating foreign journalists.
Journalists who have taken pictures of Hamas operatives preparing to shoot rockets from civilian structures and/or fighting in civilian clothing have been threatened by Hamas operatives and had their equipment confiscated.

Reporter Peter Stefanovic, of the Nine Network’s news, stationed in Gaza, received a surge of abuse and threats when he tweeted that he had seen rockets fired into Israel from near his hotel, in a civilian area.

Pro-Hamas tweeters said Stefanovic was “passing and fabricating information to Israel … from GAZA”. Another account wrote: “You are a cretin. Are you working for the IDF” and “in WWII spies got shot”.

One thought on “Hamas. Intimidation. Executions.

  1. I heard about Hamas killing people within their own ranks because they suspected them of collaborating with Israel, while they weren’t specific as to — why exactly — how they collaborated. They’re sounding pretty Soviet (whether it has to do with journalism, or reporting facts, or not). They would turn on each other. You might be right though, as to what was the offense in their eyes.
