Attallah Abu al-Sibbah is keen to demonstrate that Hamas is not the Taliban. As the new Palestinian culture minister, he will not be ordering the dynamiting of statues nor forbidding prayers to anyone but Allah. But there are limits - and belly dancing is one of them. "Belly dancing is naked women. This is not Islamic. If the phenomenon of belly dancing spreads our people might react against it by killing people. We don't want our people to become like the Taliban. People do it indoors, in secret. There's lots of it," he said.
