Mustache wars

Gunfights. Suicide bombings. Beheadings. That's all par for the course when you're a Jitardi. But this is an outrage:

Hamas has resumed its policy of shaving the mustaches of rival Fatah members to humiliate them as a form of punishment, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Reports of such punishments surfaced in January, though Hamas denied it had resorted to close shaves in its struggle to assert dominance over Palestinian politics.

Fatah officials renewed their allegations Wednesday, according to the Jerusalem Post, which said Hamas, in turn, claimed followers' beards had been sabotaged by Fatah officials.

You know, I've been trying to think up a joke about the U.N. passing a resolution condemning Norelco and Gillette for crimes against humanity for the last ten minutes or so, but this situation is just too funny on its own. You can't make this stuff up.
