And in case you think that these clerics do not represent the view of Hamas, who Clare Short and her friends in Conflicts Forum are so keen for the British government to talk to, here's the view of a senior Hamas member of the Palestinian Legislative Council:

Shame will follow those who approved these cheap festivals."
So it seems the regime in Gaza are firm in their dedication to boycott not just the leader of the supposedly national Palestinian boycott-Israel campaign, but the very cultural activities he and the Palestinian Authority are so keen to promote.
I suspect that they're also less than impressed by his seven year continuing PhD study marathon at Tel-Aviv University.
