CUTTING OFF HEADS IS ONE THING -- BUT NO HOLDING HANDS! From the London Times: "A vision of an Islamic society that bans mixed dancing and sternly disapproves of homosexuality has been given by Mahmoud Zahar, the most senior leader of Hamas in Gaza. After controversies when a Hamas-led council halted a dance festival and Islamist gunmen stopped a rap band performing in Gaza, Dr. Zahar defended the enforcement of a strict interpretation of Islam. 'A man holds a woman by the hand and dances with her in front of everyone. Does that serve the national interest?'"
You get it now? The problem with suicide bombing is that it can lead to dancing.
