Nov. 20, 2012 - Below are some shocking images and videos of brutality by Palestinians against fellow Palestinians (click to enlarge). Six men were suspected of being spies for Israeli, and "were dragged through the streets of Gaza City and executed in front of a chanting mob today as Israel warned Palestinians to evacuate some areas of the territory in apparent preparation for a ground invasion," reports The Daily Mail (UK).

"Witnesses said the six were taken to an intersection in the north of the city," The Daily Mail story continues, "where they were summarily shot for providing intelligence that helped Israel pinpoint key figures in Hamas and the Islamic Jihad targeted by their warplanes."

The suspected spies were murdered in Gaza City's Sheik Radwan neighborhood. There was no trial. No real justice. Just brutal murder and a horrific ritual through the streets.

"Hamas Aqsa radio quoted a security official," says The Daily Mail, "as saying the men had been 'caught red handed' with 'hi-tech equipment and filming equipment to take footage of positions.'

"Gunmen chained the body of one of the alleged collaborators to a motorcycle and dragged it throughout the main streets of Gaza City in a warning to others who 'betrayed' Palestinians," says The Daily Mail.  Post continues below video:

An Associated Press reporter "saw a mob surrounding five of the bloodied corpses shortly after the killing. Some in the crowd stomped and spat on the bodies," reports The Times Of Israel. "A sixth corpse was tied to a motorcycle and dragged through the streets as people screamed, 'Spy! Spy!'"

"Witnesses said a van stopped in the intersection," says that AP/Times Of Israel report, "and four masked men pushed the six suspected informers out of the vehicle." One witness, an 18-year old man, said the gunmen forced the accused to lie face down in the street, then shot them. A 13-year-old witness said the men were killed one by one, "as he mimicked the sound of gunfire."

One of the images here is an Instagram photo posted to Twitter today by CNN's Anderson Cooper (above). He is reporting live from the embattled Gaza Strip, populated by Palestinians, where Israeli rockets are pounding known positions of Hamas. (See Cooper's video report below.)

Some people on Twitter criticized Cooper for posting the photos, accusing him of pro-Israel bias. His comebacks on Twitter are worth a look. (I must say that, even as a long-time critic of CNN, I find Cooper's reporting from Gaza to be fairly well balanced.)

Hamas is the ruling power in Gaza. Israel is targeting Hamas positions in response to nearly a week of unprovoked rocket attacks on Israel.

CNN's Cooper was not the only reporter to post photos of the barbaric body draggings.

"There is broad consensus among Palestinians that informers for Israel deserve harsh punishment," says another AP report, "and it is rare to hear someone speak out against killings of alleged collaborators. Such public killings have been carried out in the West Bank and Gaza since the first intifada — or uprising — against Israeli occupation in the late 1980s."

In other words, the Palestinians have no respect for civilized law, human life or decency. It might be useful to remember that Palestinians have no problem with teaching their very young children to become suicide bombers.

"Human Rights Watch and other international rights groups have condemned such extrajudicial killings," notes AP.
