JudeaChrIstlam; Same gawd, same madness.

A Israeli rabbi has put out a religious decree banning Jewish women from driving or learning to drive.

The influential rabbi, Avraham Yosef, has said women should not get behind a wheel unless absolutely necessary.

His order prohibits women from driving in areas populated by ultra-orthodox Jews.

Rabbi Yosef is the rabbi in charge the city of Holon.

He has justified his decree by saying that driving for women does not reflect modesty or chastity, especially in cities inhabited by religious people.

Recently, another rabbi, Shmuel Halevi, issued a similar prohibition saying the seductive appearance of women distracted men drivers, resulting in accidents.
