The political stalemate in the Palestinian Authority and the again-stalled reconciliation between Hamas
have not stopped Hamas Politburo Chief Khaled Mashaal from making time for the important things – like maintaining his workout routine.
Photos of Mashaal
working out were posted on social networks Sunday, and almost immediately went viral.

He is seen warming up, stretching, playing table tennis and more.
Many in the social media have addressed the photos. Some have expressed support of his efforts – as one person noted "a stronger believer is better than a weak believer"; but others leveled criticism at the luxury displayed.
"What's with all the air-conditioners and fancy fitness equipment, when the Palestinian people don’t have enough food?" someone commented on the pictures.
Another social media user wondered where the equipment was coming from, asking "Did he take all those devices from Syria or is it funded by Qatar?"
