Lost in the shuffle: 'Peace partner' sentences two more 'collaborators' to death

This kind of got lost in the shuffle of the 'terrorists for corpses' exchange earlier in the week. Our 'peace partners,' the 'good terrorists' of Fatah, have sentenced two more 'collaborators' to death for cooperating with Israel - the only 'crime' that's taken seriously in the 'Palestinian Authority.'
This is the second time in less than three months that a PA court imposed the death penalty on Palestinians accused of collaboration.

In April a PA security court in Hebron sentenced Imad Saad, an officer in the PA's National Security Force, to death by firing squad after finding him guilty of providing Israel with information that led to the killing of four Palestinians involved in terrorism.

The two men sentenced Tuesday were identified as Wael Saed, 27, and Muhammad Saed, 22, both from Yatta near Hebron. The latter was sentenced in absentia after the court was told that he had fled to Israel.

The three-judge court ruled that the two men would be executed by a firing squad for passing on information to Israeli security forces. But the judges did not say whether Palestinians had been killed as a result of the defendants' actions.


The verdict cannot be appealed. However, it does require the approval of PA President Mahmoud Abbas, who, under pressure from human rights organizations, has never authorized any of the death penalties. Nonethless, some have been carried out.

At least 65 Palestinians have been sentenced to death by various PA courts since 1995. Most of the defendants were accused of collaborating with Israel. However, only 13 have been executed by hanging or firing squad. Many others were killed while they were in detention, the hospital, on their way to court, or even while they were inside courtrooms.
How civilized. There's a picture of a previous execution at the top of this post. The lady in the bag is the 'collaborator's mother.

This is what they do to their own people. And Jews seem to think you can make peace with people - savage beasts, really - who have no regard for the value of a human life.
