A Palestinian man rides a motorcycle with a female relative in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, October 8, 2009. Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip say safety concerns and social traditions, not Islamic religious values, are the main reason behind a decision to ban women from riding motorbikes and scooters.

Pathetic. Hamas Open link in a new window at Gaza Strip Click for map have decreed that for the "safety" of women, they are no longer allowed on motorcycles, either as rider, nor even as pillion. Pathetic!

I guess women are allowed to keep riding donkeys (maybe even the animal kind...). I presume that the real reason for the rule is that the Hamas men are terrible riders, and the women aren't, so they don't want to be showed off.

Crazy Smiley
