The roots of all silliness

Does anything better point out the trivial nonsense of some of the disputes in the Middle East than this?
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.
Yeah, that'll show 'em. Until it grows back. Funny, Saddam had a cult of moustache, or as some called it, mustache de rigeur. Moustache or mustache, some say they are both evil.

It's interesting--the last US presidential nominee with a moustache was Dewey in 1948, so maybe there is something to it.
