But ironically men wearing what resembles ankle length house dresses is considered kosher.
GAZA CITY — For years, the seaside Flower of the Cities resort was that rare place in the Gaza Strip where the dress code did not rule out bikinis. Now, with some of its cinder-block cabanas turned into prayer rooms, the beach club shows how Hamas is consolidating its hold here three months after seizing power.
Bushy beards and black head-to-toe cloaks for women have become common at the club, which the armed Islamic movement torched in June after routing the secular Fatah party on the streets. The facility has been rebranded the al-Aqsa Resort, with a new logo featuring the revered mosque complex in Jerusalem next to a beach umbrella. Hamas followers collect the $2.50 entrance fee.
Like the party it supported, the bikini crowd has disappeared, leaving the trash-flecked beach and murky swimming pool to Bassem al-Khodori and a half-dozen other Hamas supporters, who now have jobs at the resort.
Outrageous! What kind of man who claims to be heterosexual demands that women be completely covered? Why are these effeminate misogynists so interested in ensuring that their young male companions can’t get a glimpse of of a beautiful woman? Jealousy?
The barbarity of Islamism knows no boundaries. The radical Muslim is taught to be so disgusted by women that they can’t even bear to look at them. They are anti-joy, anti-freedom and anti-life, everything the harpies at Pandagon claim American Christians are but 100 times worse. Of course you won’t find Amanda marcotte or Pam Spaulding attacking this sort of behavior, they’re on Hamas side on this one.
I just thank the gods that I live in America.
