'Let Noxzema cream your face so Hamas won't'

Hamas has gone back to shaving off the mustaches of their political opponents in what appears to be a renewal of the Hamas-Fatah wars of last summer. You may recall that several months ago, the 'good terrorists' of Fatah were shaving beards off the 'bad terrorists' from Hamas in Judea and Samaria. Now the situation is reversed and Fatah doesn't like it very much.
The latest victim of the mustache-shaving policy is Nafez al-Namnam, a top Fatah operative in the Strip.

Namnam, 51, is one of the commanders of Fatah's armed wing, the Aksa Martyrs Brigades, in Gaza City.

He and his son Rami were arrested by Hamas policemen shortly after the mysterious explosion that killed five Hamas men on the beach in Gaza City last Friday.

The father and son were among more than 150 Fatah members who were rounded up by Hamas in the aftermath of the bombing.

Namnam wore an unusually large mustache for more than 30 years. But while in prison, his Hamas interrogators shaved it off before finally releasing him.

The Aksa Martyrs Brigades issued a statement strongly condemning the shaving of Namnam's mustache and threatening retaliation. It said that Namnam and his son were also tortured while in detention.

In the ancient world, the greatest affront to a man's honor would be to shave it off his beard! The Palestinians have carried on with the tradition.
