Feel Good Story of the Day al-Qassam Murders Gay Palestinian

I'm sure progressives will dismiss it as caused by you know, The Juice.

GAZA CITY — The death of Mahmoud Ishtiwi had all the trappings of a telenovela: sex, torture and embezzlement in Gaza’s most venerated and secretive institution, the armed wing of Hamas.

Mr. Ishtiwi, 34, was a commander from a storied family of Hamas loyalists who, during the 2014 war with Israel, was responsible for 1,000 fighters and a network of attack tunnels. Last month, his former comrades executed him with three bullets to the chest.

Adding a layer of scandal to the story, he was accused of moral turpitude, by which Hamas meant homosexuality. And there were whispers that he had carved the word “zulum” — wronged — into his body in a desperate kind of last testament.

Actually Mahmoud may not have been gay, he confessed to many things under torture of buy his group Izzedine al-Qassam, one wonders how many he did the very same thing to before he became the scapegoat. But Hamas didn't waterboard him, no they hung him in the same manner John McCain was tortured for days, just for starters.

Anyway, you reap what you sow.
