Hamas cracks down on fortune-tellers, mannequins
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — The Hamas-run government has launched a series of campaigns targeting fortune-tellers, mannequins and cigarette vendors in the Gaza Strip.
Police sources told Ma’an that 142 fortune tellers were forced to sign an agreement at the Ministry of Interior pledging that they would not practice their craft.
As well as predicting the future, fortune tellers sell amulets for protection and are sometimes called on to solve personal or family problems. More here.
NOTE: There’s no doubt that Hamas if it could, would be head chopping fortune tellers like they do in Saudi Arabia.
