Hamas kills 11 suspected informers for Israel

Gaza City - A Gaza security official says Hamas has killed 11 suspected informers for Israel.

Friday's killings came a day after Israel killed three top Hamas military commanders in an airstrike on a house in southern Gaza Strip.

Hamas has vowed revenge for the targeting of its leaders.

The security official says the 11 suspected informers were killed early on Friday at the Gaza City police headquarters. He says the 11 men had previously been sentenced by Gaza courts.

He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to discuss the incident with reporters. The killings of the 11 were also reported by Al Rai and Al Majd, two websites linked to Hamas.

Israel's intelligence services rely, in part, on informers to pinpoint the whereabouts of Hamas leaders.

This is where it gets interesting. Israel acknowledges there are innocent people on both sides. But Hamas contends that because all Israelis are occupiers and religious infidels, none are innocent. Hence, all are valid targets for attack both from the air above and the ground below. Refusing to claim perfection for itself, Israel admits that it makes mistakes, that in pursuit of the imperative to protect innocent people and not deliberately kill them, accidents happen. Sometimes, too, individual members of the Jewish state deliberately violate those imperatives. But for its part, Hamas admits no mistakes, no culpability, insisting instead that all its members are engaged in a holy war, a cause so exalted, so righteous, the blood of its innocents is a noble sacrifice. Hamas claims this judge is Allah, who mandates and justifies its conduct. Conclude it’s not the siege or the occupation that must be removed but the perverted Ideology. Until that happens this horrific Horror Show Will Go On…simple as that. John 16:33 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Come Lord Jesus Come. Jesus is Lord.

The eleven chaps probably have had enough of what was going on and said "maybe we should talk to the Israelis" and thus have been condemned and sentenced by the murderous Hamas regime as "informants".

"Suspected" is good enough for Hamas to condemn ... who needs evidence anyway. They are bound to get a guilty one sooner or later in between all the "collateral". There is no negotiating with these kind of people such as Hamas. The only way to end this is to occupy Gaza and weed out every last Hamas fighter and then rebuild the territory's civilian infrastructure and economy with aid and proper oversight and get a competent security force going to stamp out extremism in Gaza. When Israel moved out of Gaza due to world pressure, everybody said that THIS was going to happen and now that it did, most people are miffed at Israel for defending themselves against a direct threat.
