Friday, February 25, 2011 |  Ryan Jones

The Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continued its transition to Sharia Law this week when the ruling Islamic terror group arrested five local hair stylists for cutting women’s hair.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights reported that the five were made to sign a declaration that they would never again work at salon’s that cater to women, and ordered all local beauty salons to employ only female stylists.

Other recent similar actions include banning Gaza women from smoking the water pipes that are so prevalent in Arab culture, and forbidding women to ride behind men on motorcycles.

Hamas has also taken to banning certain books from entering Gaza that it feels violate Islamic law.
