(IsraelNN.com) According to the Bethlehem-based Maan news agency, a Gaza man enraged a Hamas Imam on Tuesday by claiming to be the Mahdi, or Muslim redeemer. The man went to the Imam to tell him that Muslims should follow his instructions.
The Imam reacted by calling Hamas forces, who arrived and told the self-proclaimed redeemer to take back his claims. When the man continued to insist that he was the redeemer, police shot at his feet and then let him go. The man’s condition was not clear.
