Hamas in Gaza City is targeting men with spiked hair, long hair and low-waisted pants.

Men who don’t meet the “decency” guidelines are being rounded up, beaten and made to sign a statement not to wear low-waisted pants and long hair.

Men are forced to have their heads shaved as they are mocked by abusive police officers.

If people protest, they are beaten.

The Islamic bloc is leading the charge but you won’t see much of this in our AP reports because the word “Islamist” has been banned except when Islamists are being complimented. [World Tribune]
