Hamas to ask Abu Mazen for 'permission' to execute 'collaborator'

Just five days after the 'good terrorists' from Fatah condemned two 'collaborators' to death, a Hamas 'court' has condemned yet another 'collaborator' to the same fate. Since Hamas always abides by the 'law' and under the 'Palestinian law' death sentences must be approved by the President, Hamas is going to ask 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen to 'approve' the death sentence. But Abu might not have the option to just say no.
Iyad Hamed Sukkar, 35, of Gaza City, was sentenced to death by a "military" court controlled by the Hamas government.

He was found guilty of tipping off Israeli security forces on the whereabouts of Palestinians who were later killed by the IDF. The judges wrote in the verdict that Sukkar had been recruited as a spy five years ago.

The court was told that Sukkar's actions resulted in the killing of at least two Palestinians: Muhammad al-Wadiyeh and Munir Sukkar. The two were members of Hamas's armed wing, Izzadin al-Kassam.

This was the first time a court had sentenced a Palestinian to death since Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip in June 2007.

Death sentences must be approved by the president of the PA.

However, PA President Mahmoud Abbas, unlike his predecessor, Yasser Arafat, has thus far refused to endorse any death sentences.

Ihab al-Ghissin, spokesman for the Hamas-run Interior Ministry in the Gaza Strip, said his government would act in line with the law and seek Abbas's approval for the death sentence against Sukkar.

"Despite the political differences [between Hamas and Fatah], we will seek the president's approval," Ghissin said. "But if Abbas refuses to approve the court's verdict for political reasons, we will seek other alternatives. We can't afford a situation where court rulings are ignored, as was the case when Abbas's men were in control of the Gaza Strip."
Can you imagine what would happen if Arnold Schwarzenegger decided to pardon a convicted murderer and the State authorities decided to ignore him? I didn't think so. But give them a state reichlet - they're just so ready for it.

P.S. The picture at the top is of an August 2006 'collaborator' execution and the white bag is the executed 'collaborator's mother who was brought to the scene to spit on and kick the dead body.

Its amusing they're scruplers for the rule of law. I didn't think they particularly cared about it. What makes any one think savage beasts could ever be law-abiding? Palestinian "law" is the ultimate oxymoron.
