Reuters reports that Hamas is banning women from riding scooters and motorcycles in the Gaza Strip. The ban is said to “protect community values” and includes riding pillion. Read the full story at Reuters.com 

Makes you want to go for a ride now, don’t it?

Sadly images as wildy improbable as this one, are forbidden in real life, in the year 200-freakin’-9 in the Gaza Strip... Why?

If I understand you correctly, riding with a woman will causes premature detonation.

It's because hamas is worried there male terrorist, suicide bombers will accidently trigger their bomb vest prematurely and not kill enough innocent civilians..

It's because they will accidently trigger the strapped on bomb prematurely.

"the decision was taken after they found that women riding behind their husbands or male relatives were a prime reason for accidents in recent weeks." Maybe they should have just banned the women from nagging their husbands while riding... HAHA! just kidding.
