Hamas' newest law: No male hairdressers for women

Palestine Today reports that Hamas is now preventing men from working as hairdressers for women in Gaza.
Police confirmed that the decision, posted on its website, was made "in accordance with the instructions of the Minister of Interior and National Security (in the Gaza government) Fathi Hammad.

The police stressed that it "will pursue anyone who violates this resolution and expose himself to accountability and legal accountability."

Several women's hairdressing salons in the Gaza Strip have been subjected to bombings in recent months.
Remember the good old days when Hamas was recently elected and its leaders strenuously denied that they would force Islamic rule on everyone in Gaza?
