The government in Gaza failed to make even the most elementary effort to identifying the killers.

Human Rights Watch on Thursday criticized the Hamas government in Gaza for failing to investigate the murders of seven prisoners. The victims, who were accused of collaboration with Israel, were publicly killed during two days in November, 2012, while Israel and Gazan terrorists were exchanging heavy fire.
Images of one of the victims being dragged behind a motorcycle through Gaza City quickly became a symbol of the “Heart of Darkness” kind of cruelty which rules the streets there.
“Hamas’s inability or unwillingness to investigate the brazen murders of seven men makes a mockery of its claims that it’s upholding the rule of law in Gaza,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, HRW’s Middle East director.
Human Rights Watch said that despite the circumstances of their deaths, the military courts that convicted the men made their decisions on the basis of coerced confessions, ignoring credible evidence that interrogators tortured at least six of the defendants.
“Even before the killings, the abuses the men suffered made the criminal justice system a travesty, regardless of their guilt or innocence,” Whitson said in a statement.

Note: The photo (above) and videos made by Hamas are on the Internet and You Tube, as the terrorists are proud of their deeds. Do you suppose that if any of these reports were made public on our news media, the United States citizens would demand that funds were cut off from supporting the Palestinian organizations? If so, why not give your state representatives a phone call. Much of what is being "gifted" to these organizations are being by-passed by Congress, to support the Arab "Palestinians" without any investigation as to how these groups invest their/our money. For instance, did you know that the "moderate" Fatah-Abbas supports a portion of his ill-gotten donations from the EU/UN/US to the terrorist prisoners? Doesn't that make you wonder why the US believes in supporting the people calling themselves "Palestinians"? It amazes me to think that since 9/11, our nation has reverted to supporting Muslim terrorists, rather than standing behind the one democratic nation in the entire Middle East - Israel.
