Flying Pigs? Human Rights Watch Calls on Hamas to Investigate Islamic Jihad

What a crock. This is an "about time" moment if I ever heard one! The big question, to me, is whether or not this is based upon reality? I do not think I have ever heard of Human Rights Watch condemning a terrorist group before. Usually they only seem to take on countries that are likely to kow tow to them, or ignore them, like China does.

Of course, the terrorists might be in that same category...

Solomonia: Flying Pigs? Human Rights Watch Calls on Hamas to Investigate Islamic Jihad: "Flying pigs or bizarro world? Gaza: Investigate Abduction, Torture by Islamic Jihad - Hamas Has Duty to Prosecute Serious Abuses:

Hamas authorities in Gaza should investigate the recent abduction and apparent torture of three men by the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, Human Rights Watch said today. The authorities should hold accountable any individuals responsible for serious abuses.

On May 20, 2008, the al-Quds Brigades, the armed wing of Islamic Jihad, announced that it had arrested three men who they claimed were part of a larger 'cell' working with Israeli security services. A statement said that: 'The cell that was uncovered by the Security Apparatus of the Al-Quds Battalions includes very dangerous collaborators who were recruited by the Occupation in the 1990s.'

An Islamic Jihad spokesman who gave his name as 'Abu Ahmad' told Human Rights Watch in a telephone interview that the group held the men in a private detention center and interrogated them for close to two weeks."
