    Pity Bolstrom has not taken some of his critics seriously as he would have seen that his allegations have been investigated by CAMERA and: Israel does not liquidate stonethrowers without trial. "Soldiers yesterday shot and killed Bilal Ghanem, 20, a fugitive since July 1991, after cornering him in the village of Imatin, near Nablus. Ghanem had been suspected of kidnapping and violently interrogating alleged informers, the IDF announcement said." "Ghanem was being tracked in the context of Israel seeking to halt a deadly upsurge in killing of Palestinians by Palestinian gangs, such as Fatah's Black Panthers and others. In May of 1992, an epidemic of so-called collaborator killings was underway in the West Bank and Gaza." "There were at least another 223 Palestinians killed ? by other Palestinians ? as of December 8, 1992"
