Hamas bans men from working in female hair salons
Police announce latest move in campaign to impose strict Islamic rules on Gaza residents
guardian.co.uk, Thursday 4 March 2010
Gaza’s Islamic Hamas government has banned men from working in women’s hair salons. It is the latest step in a campaign to impose strict Islamic customs on Gaza’s 1.5 million people.
Since seizing the city in 2007, Hamas has moved in that direction while avoiding a frontal assault on secularism.
The majority of Gaza residents are conservative Muslims, but Hamas is under growing pressure from radical groups to prove its fundamentalist credentials by imposing harsher edicts.
Hamas police said in a statement on their website that those who violated the ban would face legal consequences.
Is this part of the “moderate” Islamic movement that I keep on hearing about? Never mind…. But this Islamic hellhole, was recently given millions of dollars by Obama. If America is supposed to be about freedom, why are we funding Islamists?
