Thanks Cal, signed and shared!

I quote from this article: "Nobody deserves to be killed, especially since many times confessions are coerced or trials are unfair. Since there is no proof that the death penalty prevents future crimes, please put an end to these executions. I am also asking you to help put an end to the death penalty all together in the Gaza Strip."

Thanks so much for signing this petition everyone!

THe silence is deafening though for those who usually criticize Israel on Care2 and elsewhere for human rights violations-where are their loud voices now, when it comes to human rights in Gaza???

These executions are very likely based on religious law, so that it is highly unlikely that our efforts will bear fruit. Still, that doe not mean that we should sit back and do nothing. The least we can do is voice our disapproval.

Alexandra Rodda, you are, sadly, correct. The Hamas Islamist government has been enforcing Sharia Law opposing all modern, civilised law and behaviour. They have been forcing all women to veil, even non-Muslims, persecuting Christians and non-Sunnis, torturing gay people and other primitive tribal Islamic laws.

How anyone can defend and support this corrupt tyranny and condemn Israel, where many of these oppressed people flee for freedom and safety, is beyond me, but they'll all show up here soon to defend Palestine again.

Cal and Carola M, our sentiments exactly! Where are all the usual Israel haters and Palestine lovers now? If they had their way, Israel would be destroyed and taken over by these primitive bigots, and the last light of hope and freedom in the whole region would be snuffed out forever (again).

Some of you may find this article on the persecution and torture of gay people in the Palestinian territories of interest too:

'Israel, Palestine, and Gays''
A short but thought provoking piece by Paul Varnell. '

While persecuted homosexuals are running out of Palestine and into the safe arms of Israel in fear for their lives, many homosexuals in the West are pushing aside this despicable treatment of gays in order to conform with, and further, certain political positions. One example we are given of the suffering there many homosexuals have to face in Arab countries, is of a 17-year-old youth who spent months in a Palestinian prison, where interrogators cut him with glass and poured toilet cleaner into his wounds, immersed him in a vat of human excrement and covered his head with an excrement-filled bag. He was able to escape to Israel where he is safe and free and where gay people are treated like humans, unlike every other country in the region. (Tel Aviv has been named one of the best places in the world for gay people).

Read the complete article here:

Cal, it's funny but when I mention the human rights abuses by Hamas in Gaza there is disagreement or silence on the subject but, either way, Israel gets abused.

You will never see MM, Mary P, Abedsalam et al on any of these news boards as an acknowledgement of such abuses is beyond them.

So well said, R&J and others! Total silence from the pro-Pali crowd on this one and many others like it. This is why many people are convinced that the Palestinian issue is not about Palestinians (even the Arab countries won't let the Palestinians assimilate into their countries -- but you'll hear them cry "we're all brothers). It's about hating Jews.

Thanks so much for posting, Cal!

And while Palestinians are executing Palestinians in Gaza..... there's no death penalty in Israel, not even for Palestinians.

I wish I could green star Gillian Miller, and Rob and Jay B. as I already did so this week.
How does the rest of the world expect Israel to deal with people who hate their own?
