Or maybe a better reading of the title would be “Hamas continuing violation of all human rights in the name of Allah.”

The interior ministry of the de facto Hamas administration in the Gaza Strip issued an official announcement on its website banning women from riding with men on motorcycles. The police, according to the announcement, would be on the lookout for offenders (Website of Hamas’ interior ministry, November 6, 2009).

The announcement of the interior ministry of the de facto Hamas administration
forbidding women to be given rides on motorcycles.

Hamas spokesmen would not admit that the new regulation was part of its enforced Islamization of the Gazans. Ihab al-Ghussein, interior ministry spokesman, claimed that the decision was made after it had been discovered that the main cause of accidents was women riding behind their husbands or other family members (Reuters, November 8, 2009). Rafiq Abu Hani, spokesman for the Hamas police, told Al-Aqsa TV that the reason for the decision was “to protect public safety,” and that the fact that “giving women rides on motorcycles contradicts the nature of Palestinian society” (Al-Aqsa TV, November 10, 2009).

Quotes and Sayings

About the Region, Islam and cultural totalitarianism...

    Is discord going to show itself while we are still fighting, is the Jew once again worth less than another? Oh, it is sad, very sad, that once more, for the umpteenth time, the old truth is confirmed: “What one Christian does is his own responsibility, what one Jew does is thrown back at all Jews.”

    — Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl, entry for May 22, 1944 (1947, trans. 1952).
