Thanks to Charles Johnson, here's an example of a point raised in the preceding post:
A Hamas-led town council in the West Bank has banned outdoor music and dance performances planned as part of a summertime Palestinian festival.Gee, it's almost like Ashcroft draping a cloth over a statue, but not quite. I'm trying to think of the difference...
A Qalqilya council spokesman said it was partly to avoid damaging the grass.
But he also said the council had been elected to protect the conservative values of the city, which included not approving of men and women mixing.
In May the militant Hamas won the West Bank town's elections, ousting the mainstream Fatah party.
Oh! I know what it is! Hamas are a group of Jew-hating mass murderers!
Sorry for the stretch, but I had to work it out.
