Decency doesn’t apply to men. Only women are banned from smoking that thing.
As far as the clothing being confiscated– I thought that they didn’t have any clothing. I guess the flotilla’s made a difference. They shipped all those nice clothes with profanity. Maybe that would be a good reason to not let any flotillas in. It may corrupt their world renowned moral culture. Did I write renowned? Maybe it’s RENOUNCED. The depravity in Gaza goes beyond mere slogans of profanity on a t- shirt, but who cares, let them ban the shirts that they say they don’t have.
Why are not the WOMENS movements out in droves over this.
Imagine if the government in the US banned smoking in public, but only for WOMEN?
And this is the culture that is soooo in favor?
Crickets from the media. There is nothing but depravity in GAZA and the ME, but there they all go, praising the Barbarians (people from the Barbary coast).
Where is Rahm Emanuel? He’s a Jew. Jews would never stand for this and he is so influential.
Robert Gibbs is the spokes piece for everything else. Nothing coming from there either.
They say that you can tell a culture by their art. What do you see in this “ART?””]
Gaza police seize ‘inappropriate clothing’
Gaza – Ma’an – De facto government detectives in the Gaza Strip seized inventory from several shops and vendors on Saturday, which a police report said displayed “immoral words.”
The clothing, manufactured in Gaza City, was mostly cotton shirts with the words “Porn Man Clothing” written on them in bold letters.
Detectives said the clothing was uncovered during a routine inspection tour, and was traced back to a manufacturer in the Ash-Shuja’iyyah neighborhood of Gaza City, where a report said two merchants and a printer worked to create and supply the goods to vendors.
Police said the supplies and the merchandise were confiscated and the individuals involved in making the clothing brought in for questioning.
Investigators said charges would likely be laid.
The seizure on grounds of immorality is the latest in a string of small measures being taken by the Gaza government to enforce what critics call inappropriate laws on personal status.
On 18 July, the Gaza Interior Ministry issued a ban on women smoking the water pipe (arghileh) in public places, with Police spokesman Ayman Batneiji telling Ma’an that women smoking water pipes in public places “contradicts” Palestinian traditions and values.
The decision will be enforced, he said, though news reports indicated otherwise.
Earlier bans targeted women riding motorbikes in Gaza, wedding parties that extended beyond midnight, and the mandating of conservative uniforms at government schools.
