Palestinian govt. lifts ban on folk tale book

The Palestinian education ministry, controlled by Hamas, has removed its ban on Speak, Bird, Speak Again, an anthology of Palestinian folk tales. The ministry had banned the book allegedly due to the fact that it contained non-standard Arabic, although analysts have speculated that the book contained material too bawdy for Hamas to swallow (BBC).
