Hate to finish on a downer, but apparently torture in Gaza and the West Bank has been prevalent for a while:

"Two human rights groups on Monday decried widespread torture of political opponents by bitter Palestinian rivals Hamas and Fatah. Interviews with three victims and a doctor backed the reports of abuse.
One detainee told of being beaten with pipes and having a screwdriver rammed into his back. Another said he was pulled off the ground by a rope attached to hands tied behind his back.
The findings emerged as rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas carried out fresh arrest sweeps in the West Bank and Gaza - highlighting deep tensions in the Palestinian territories after a flare-up in violence over the weekend."

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
