Palestinian Centre for Human Rights: Hey, Those ‘Collaborators’ Pretty Much Had It Coming

Posted by on Nov 21, 2012 at 9:57 am

Seeing the stunning barbarism on display in Gaza, where an alleged collaborator with Israel was executed and dragged through the streets, barely registers with the guardian of  “human rights”  in Palestine. According to someone claiming to be the director of the laughably titled Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, why, they pretty much had it coming.

Human rights group are still investigating the incidents, and Issam Younis, director of the Al Mezan Centre for Human Rights said he was unable to confirm who caught or killed the men.

“Some of the names that have been mentioned to me tonight [as collaborators who were killed] had already been charged and sentenced to death. They were not just taken from the street today and shot,” Mr Younis

“Collaborators are a very serious issue in Palestinian society. According to many hundreds of cases there have been extremely serious crimes committed by collaborators, especially in situations like this.”

But instead of summary executions, collaborators should be charged and dealt with in line with the law, with their legal rights protected, Mr Younis said.

But hey, they’d already been charged and sentenced, so what’s the big deal?

Andrew Bolt notes the absence of the word alleged in the original report.
The corpse of a collaborator [alleged collaborator, please, Ms Pollard] was tied to the back of a motorcycle and dragged through central Gaza City in front of a convoy of bikes, his pants pulled down and his arms splayed behind him.
Eh, that’s only reserved for approved criminals.

    We saw the same tacit approval given when the ANC tortured and murdered “collaborators in South Africa. Strangely, the IRA were repeatedly (and correctly) taken to task for doing exactly this.
