As a Muslim Brotherhood franchise, Hamas is obviously backing Morsi, while the Palestinian Authority is taking the Saudi side against Morsi.
Apparently some Hamas members decided that the best way to rally support for Morsi was with a perfume named Morsi for anyone who wants to smell like an ousted Islamist tyrant.
Palestinian security services have arrested an Islamist sympathizer in the West Bank for selling perfume named in honor of Egypt’s ousted President Mohammad Mursi, family members said on Thursday.
Islambuli Badir, a 36-year-old member of Islamist movement Hamas, was arrested during a raid on his perfume shop in the town of Tulkarem, his brother Abdel Fattah Badir told AFP.
“Men from the security services on Tuesday raided my brother’s shop and confiscated all the perfume bottles that were labeled ‘Mursi,’ then arrested Islambuli and also seized his laptop,” said Abdel Fattah.
“The day after the arrest, my younger brother Qassam, 24, put a sign up on the shop door saying: An apology to customers — our Mohammad Mursi perfume has been seized by the authorities.”
Were there any actual customers? Did anyone really want to go around smelling like Morsi?
