Markets in everything

Hamas now has a matchmaking service:

"The applicants, who pay a fee of $10-$70, are divided into
categories according to their eligibility. Women under 25 are easiest
to marry off; more challenging are women over 30 and divorcees.

"But
in a nod to Gaza's grinding poverty triumphing over its conservative
culture, there is a special file for women with jobs. Bringing home a
salary in Gaza can trump any other category, matchmakers say.

"In
the women's application, they describe their ideal man. Most ask for a
devout Muslim with a job and his own apartment, a top find in crowded
Gaza.

"Women also must describe their appearance and answer a
killer question: 'Do you consider yourself pretty according to Gaza
standards?'"

I thank TheBrowser.com for the pointer.

How many dimensions of compatibility do they use?

Sorry for being clueless but I have a question.

Can anyone tell me what "Gaza standards" might mean in this context?

Thanks!

Is rock throwing ability important?

Btw guys. Just because you took me to dinner and a Zionist flag burning doesn't mean I'm going to put out.

But kill yourself and some Israelis in a suicide bombing, THEN we'll get together!

OK there is absolutely nothing funny here at all. You people are just mocking some other culture. Why should people in Gaza not have a matchmaking service?

I am sure young women in some red state would look for a well off devout catholic. I used to live in the states and believe me you are no less human than anybody else.

Yeah, crazy how they can't solve the peace problem when no one's overly sensitive or anything.
