Gaza Strip Terrorized By Hamas

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The Islamist rulers of the Gaza Strip have ordered lingerie shops to display more modesty.

hamasA week after banning women from smoking water pipes in public places, the Hamas-run police force has told stores selling women`s underwear to remove scantily-clad mannequins and any posters of racy undergarments.

Hamas police have broken up a hip-hop concert in the territory and tried -- unsuccessfully -- to force women lawyers in court and female school students to wear traditional Muslim clothing, a step that drew a public backlash." - Reuters
When Israel controlled the Gaza Strip the Palestinians complained that the Israeli military controlled every aspect of their lives.

The Palestinians had legitimated complaints, but have things improved under the leadership of Hamas? Let`s see, Hamas thugs make stores to hide their mannequins, they force female lawyers in court to cover themselves from head to toe, and they break up hip hop concerts.

It`s evident that the Palestininas living in the Gaza Strip enjoy less freedom since Hamas assumed power. There is no freedom or liberty under Islam, especially for women and religious minorites.

Palestinians have long eschewed peaceful means to achieve their goals -- they are enamored of violence and terrorism. Now they are under the foot of the Hamas terrorists, poetic justice is a beautiful thing.
