Amnesty International(AI) has uncovered evidence that Hamas forces and militias were involved in a campaign “of abductions, deliberate and unlawful killings, torture and death threats against those they accuse of ‘collaborating’ with Israel as well as opponents and critics” of their regime. The report says at least two dozen men have been shot by Hamas since the conclusion of the Israel invasion and that many others have been “knee-capped” which consists of crippling men by shooting them in the knees. Amnesty International insists it has “incontrovertible evidence” to support its accusations. Hamas has admitted it was searching for “collaborators” but denies the human rights charges of Amnesty International.
A study conducted by the Palestinian Center for Human Rights supports claims by AI and believes about 32 men have been killed, and that dozens more were shot or tortured. After Hamas took over Gaza in 2007, it has harassed the Human Rights Center.
Those who justifiably protested against Israel human rights abuses are remarkably silent when it comes to human rights violations by Hamas. One can only conclude from the silence and lack of protests that if Jews commit human rights violations the world is upset, but when millions are killed in the Congo or thousands in Darfur and Uganda, the silence is deafening.
