Hamas thuggery even too much for Amnesty International

The systematic killing of rival Fatah members in Gaza by Hamas has proven too much for even the Palestinian supporting Amnesty International who has condemned the terrorists for being so mean:

Amnesty International on Tuesday accused Hamas of waging a campaign to kill or maim scores of Palestinian opponents in the Gaza Strip since the end of December.

The human rights group said in a report that at least two dozen men have been shot dead by gunmen from the Palestinian militia that governs the Gaza Strip since December 27.

 

"Scores of others have been shot in the legs, knee-capped or inflicted with other injuries intended to cause severe disability, subjected to severe beatings ... or otherwise tortured or ill-treated," it added.

 

"Hamas forces and militias in the Gaza Strip have engaged in a campaign of abductions, deliberate and unlawful killings, torture and death threats against those they accuse of 'collaborating' with Israel, as well as opponents and critics," the report said.

 

The victims included members of Palestinian Authority security forces and members of Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas' Fatah party, Amnesty said.

I guess when Hamas launches rockets at Israeli civilians that only calls for a mild rebuke and a slap on the wrist for the terrorists from AI. But when it comes to sheer thuggery against their own people, that's a different story.

Can you say "double standard?"
