Thou Shalt Not Receive Thy Salary

Wednesday, July 04, 2007

The government of moderate Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad promised Monday to pay full salaries to tens of thousands of civil servants for at least six months, but also warned that employees cooperating with the Islamist Hamas will be cut from the payroll.

In Hamas-ruled Gaza, mosque preachers struck back with a religious decree that government workers who accept Fayyad's money under such conditions violate the rules of Islam.
I think they're making this up as they go.
