Tuesday – May 18 2010 – Kawther Salam – Medical sources from Gaza confirmed that three Palestinians arrived early today at Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza after having been executed. Hamas security sources stated that Amer Jondyye, Rami Juha and Matar Al-Shobaki had been executed for crimes. Jundyye was accused of murdering the money changer Fawzi Jamil Ajjur, aged 40 and from the Al-Rimal area from Gaza. The killer was captured by Hamas forces, the body of the victim had been buried in the yard of the house of the murderer. Juha was one among four who were accused in the killing of the girl Mayada Abu Lamthe on September 25 2003. The murderers were sentenced to death in June 2005. Al-Shobaki, was sentenced to death after he was accused of kidnapping and murdering the money changer Abdullah Ramadan Shehadeh.
Hamas also executed two other Palestinians, Freih Abu Nasser Salama and Mohamed Ibrahim Ismail on April 15 2010 after they were charged of keeping contact with the Israeli occupation. Hamas also carried out the execution of two other Palestinians during the last year.
The Palestinian movement of Fatah, the political wing of the Palestinian Authority, has accused the illegal government of Hamas of executing dozens of it’s elements in the years of 2006 – 2007. They also accused them of deliberately shooting at the legs of detainees after breaking the bones of their hands and legs.
The Palestinian Authority under President Mahmoud Abbas sentenced to death 28 Palestinians between April 6 2008 and December 9 2009. 14 were accused of having contact with Israel, three were accused of the murder of money changer Jamil Kamel on October 4 2009. Four were accused of establishing an illegal “devil organization” (probably a satanist group) in 2006, three were accused of kidnapping people, two were accused of rape. Some of these people, 5, have been executed, the others are waiting for the confirmation of their sentences by President Abbas.
The execution rulings were all issued by the Palestinian military court. Before that, the PA had sentenced to death 71 Palestinians between May 3 1995 and November 29 2005, and the PA had executed 14 Palestinians under the deceased President Yasser Arafat. The executions of Mohammad Kamal abu Soltan and Raed Kamal abu Soltan on 29 August 1998, who were accused of murdering Mohammad Ibrahim Al-Khalidi, were carried out with the presence of the former justice minister Freih Abu Median, Abdel Rahman Hamad, former Minister of housing, Saadi Al-Karnaz, former Minister of Industry, and attended by the legislative council members Jamileh Saydam, Kamal Al-Sharafi, Jawad Al-Tibi, Rawhi Fattuh, Jalal Al-Masdar, the heads of the security systems and some members of the family al-Khalidi, the victim.

Both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas regimes are illegal and have no real legitimacy, both are issuing more and more death sentences by the military courts, in flagrant violation of the principles of human rights. The accused persons are not given fair trials in civilian courts, where they could defend themselves from the accusations leveled against them. Under the present conditions, with the populations of both Gaza and the West Bank subjected to genocidal measures by israel, to sentence people to death without even allowing them a fair trial is plain and simple murder in cold blood and collaboration with the enemy.
That political officials would attend these executions as if they were something to celebrate is a testimony to the disgusting sadism and double standards of these people. It is not like anybody, ever, has been accused of mistreating or murdering a woman in Palestine, to the contrary, abusers and murderers of women are even protected by these regimes.
Addendum and explanation / 20 May :
Both Fatah and Hamas were legitimately elected to form a government, the “PA”, in 2006. This never came into existence because of the criminal intermission of israel and their accomplices. Neither Fatah nor Hamas were intended to form a government on their own, one imposing extremist religious views on Gaza, the other one collaborating with the occupation and stealing and selling out everything not screwed tight in the West Bank.
Both Fatah and Hamas have lost any claims to legitimacy because they have divided the Palestinian nation and they are imposing brutal dictatorship on the Palestinian people on top of the genocidal horrors brought upon us by the jews. Both factions are infiltrated by jewish zionist interests. Mitchell was never allowed by anybody to negotiate on our behalf, he is a nobody, and Abbas is ruling only as a puppet of the CIA. The limit of time for which they were elected is over, there have been no new elections, and they have achieved nothing but to disgrace themselves. They have no more legitimacy than israel.
