J’lem Post: A Palestinian human rights activist and journalist who used to work for the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem has been executed by Hamas on charges of “collaboration” with Israel, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip said over the weekend.
They pointed out that Ghanem, who was a field researcher for B’Tselem, had been sentenced to death by a Palestinian Authority court in 2002 after being found guilty of passing on information to Israel that later resulted in the elimination of Fatah gunmen. Ghanem, according to the Palestinians, was among dozens of suspected “collaborators” who were executed by Hamas during Operation Cast Lead.
But hey, don’t think it’s only the Hamas that wants peacenik Palestinians dead, it’s also the Fattah as well. The same guy was found guilty by Yasser Arafat and sentenced to death for doing what the PA should have been doing all along, seeking peaceful measures to bring an end to the conflict. He got a death sentence instead. KGS
