In Beirut, an Islamic Department Store

From Reuters

The Lebanese capital's first fundamentalist department store offers "everything Islamic, at competitive prices."

Customers have flocked eagerly to the Modern Commercial Market.

The market opened just over a week ago in West Beirut. Goods for sale include Egyptian and Saudi video cassettes and long-sleeved, ankle-length Islamic women's gowns, sold in a wide range of patterns and cuts to satisfy the Lebanese flair for elegance.
