'Miss Palestine' contest canceled

I'm sure you will all be as disappointed as Hillary Clinton was to hear that the 'Miss Palestine' contest has been canceled. Clinton was a leading candidate for the title.
The Palestinian Authority on Sunday cancelled the first Miss Palestine beauty contest that was supposed to take place in Ramallah later this week under the pretext that it coincides with the first anniversary of Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip.

The PA warned the organizers that they would be punished if they violated the ban.


Last week Hamas strongly condemned the planned Miss Palestine contest as a violation of Islamic teachings and called for its cancellation.

Hamas also accused the PA, which had initially given its blessing to the event, of "spreading moral corruption."
For those of you who think that now that they have the Dayton troops, Fatah no longer fears Hamas, think again.
