Target Rich Wedding

Ma’an News reports:

The 20-year-old daughter of de facto Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh was married Monday to her 31-year-old cousin in a magnanimous ceremony attended by dozens of high-level Hamas officials.

Khawla Haniyeh married Abd Al-Mo’ti Khaled Haniyeh, who was released from Israeli prison in August, after serving a 15 year sentence. The wedding that was described by one attendee as a “carnival;” lunch was served in the home of the groom’s family, rather than in the bride’s home. Haniyeh did, however, attend the event, along with huge crowds of civilian celebrators.

Although it is traditional for the wedding luncheon to be held in the bride’s home with the father of the bride as host, Gazans at Monday’s wedding considered Haniyeh’s attendance to the groom’s home a sign of great love and appreciation for him. “It is clear that the groom is considered part of the family,” said one guest.

Of course it’s clear. It’s her freakin’ cousin.
