Palestinians look at a crater made after a house was hit by an Israeli airstrike in Gaza in the northern Gaza Strip on Friday, Aug. 22, 2014.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Gaza gunmen killed 18 alleged spies for Israel on Friday, including seven who were lined up behind a mosque and shot after midday prayers, in response to Israel's deadly airstrikes against top Hamas military commanders.

Hamas media portrayed the killings as the beginning of a new crackdown, under the rallying cry of "choking the necks of the collaborators." It was the largest number of suspected informers killed by Hamas in a single day since it seized Gaza by force in 2007.

The Al Majd website, which is close to the Hamas security services, said suspects would now be dealt with "in the field" rather than in the courts in order to create deterrence.

Hamas said it would not release the names of those killed because it wanted to protect the reputation of their families. The Palestinian Center for Human Rights said two of those killed Friday were women. It called for an immediate halt to what it said were "extra-judicial executions."

Just think how much money the Israelis could save by sending baskets of fruit and flowers to various Palestinians with a card saying ‘Thanks For All Your Help’ instead of bombs.

This just reinforces that the biggest killers of Arabs are other Arabs.

That isn't killing. That is murder, assassination, or execution. Go back to school.
