1. There goes college!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.21.10)
But you had to see that coming. Acceptance to university has been greatly reduced for women for years, actually. Fewer and fewer women are admitted to medical school and law school as well. Just another nail in Iran's coffin, as far as I'm concerned. Do you suppose Ahmedinejad has thought about this much? More women die in childbirth in Iran than as a result of any disease, including cancer (and Iran has a very high rate of cancer in women). Iran seems determined to get back to the seventh century just as quickly as possible. They're halfway there already.
2. is this supposed to be a crime ???
at least he is not urging homosexuality and prostitusion which is a huge sin in all the holy books , yet it is highly bieng urged in israel ...
3. Clever isn't he?
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (11.21.10)
He's trying to get the birth rate back up so that he'll have more bodies to make as soldiers.
4. to #1 collage? you r a tad over reacting
ghostq   (11.21.10)
the persian men don't even go there according to this monkey policy. you have to realize they got no money for that.
5. to #2 yes it crime calles statutory rape
ghostq   (11.21.10)
,and prostitutes exist in the arabs world, guess who is the biggest human trafficer via russia. bedouins also opium. the lack of free info can show how lil you know on your own faith, sadly it is far from lokal phenomena.

You´re right, stupidity is not a crime.
7. Good idea! The greatest protection for a woman from breast
Rivkah   (11.21.10)
cancer is to give birth before the age of 18. Women can go to college after the birth of a child or children. My mother completed her B.A. degree in Education and two Master's Degrees in Counselling and Guidance and the second in Library Science AFTER she had five children and they were all in school. I finished a B.S. in Pharmacy after marrying. The organization DADD's which means Dads Against Daughters Dating gives you a clue on why early marriage is best instead of years of dating and being defiled and cast off as someone boys don't want to marry. The mother of Israel's greatest Rabbi, Yeshua, was about 14 years old when she gave birth to him. She was devoutly religious and raised many children who were born after Yeshua. Her brother Joseph of Arimathea was the wealthiest Jew in Judea at the time with his marriage to Mary Magdalene, from another wealthy family. Josephus the historian fills in a lot of gaps in Scriptures. Mary (Miriam in Hebrew) is an example of what is best: early marriage.
8. To: No. 7
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.21.10)
Rivkah, I will say this as nicely as I can. Shut up. Ever hear of the BRAC gene, by the way? So much for your breast cancer nonsense theory .....

10. What Do You Expect?
emanon ,   USA   (11.21.10)
The alleged founder of their so called religion was a defiler of underage girls.
11. 8 Sarah B., USA: John McTernon's book, "God's Final
Rivkah   (11.21.10)
Warning to America", references the statistics on breast cancer. An early life abortion is the greatest risk factor for later life breast cancer. An early life full term pregnancy is the greatest protection from later life breast cancer. Yes, people have genes that predispose them to certain diseases. It is probably a mutation from the sins of the fathers being visited on the children for three and four generations as a judgment from YHWH. Were you one of those defiled women who married later in life whose Papa had to pay someone to marry you? Why else would you want to encourage young women to delay marriage only to be defiled by bars and dating and vile males who do not intend to marry them?
12. #11 sins of the fathers being visited on the children
observer   (11.21.10)
In Islam children can not be held accountable for deeds of fathers. Muslims believe in Torah. you are not even Torah observant, are you. Sure, Iranian women have lots of dates, only they EAT those!
13. # 8
Birdi ,   Israel   (11.21.10)
Sarah, its BRCA 1 & BRCA 2, which are the 2 major genes in breast cancer.
14. #11
Rivkah... I feel I must quote Sarah on this one... Shut up. Not all women who aren't married at age 14-16 become cheap sluts... Seriously, I know pleanty of 19+ girls and guys who are not sexualy active.
15. #7 & #11
Jeremy ,   Michigan USA   (11.21.10)
I'm glad to hear that you and your mother were both able to achieve degrees after getting married and having children... BUT I don't believe most women are/are able to do this. (NOTHING sexist meant from that statement!) My question to you about #11 is this... is John McTernon a doctor of medicine? Has he done ANY research at ALL himself on anything that has ANY basis in science? My guess is, noting the title of the book you referenced, that the answer is no. Any yahoo can make a statistic say exactly what they want it to say.. When he has some research of his own that is certified by a proven reliable method.. then you can quote him.. until then I agree with Sarah and #14...
16. What next? Segregated buses with women at back?
17. Rivkah -world needs more real women like you
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (11.21.10)
And all she knows to do is to refute anything that does not make sense to her.Not that many things do as it is to her. Well reported but she will come up with something else,shortly.
19. Why Ahmadinejad feels that way
Mark from Georgia ,   USA   (11.21.10)
Clearly he suffers from the deflated ego of Muslim males. The fact is they want their women ignorant, barefoot and pregnant. They are intimidated by the educated female. At 24 years old the women has had time to finish college. It seems in that part of the world total control over the women is what is desired. If the women is a professional she is not dependent on the male financially which means they lose a vast amount of control over the women. Iran has secret police running around turning in women who don't wear the proper head/face covers. Also the males in that part of the world have never learned to accept rejection. They feel if they are attracted to the women she has no right to reject them. Like little boys who throw tantrums. Why do you think they stone women for infidelity. There are even cases of a women being raped, charged with infidelity, while the rapist walks away. Great Laws! Why anybody would defend this kind of backward thinking is beyond me. I've noticed some here have tried to turn this into a religious argument. Sorry, not when you use it to deprive half of the world population of their rights, I'm not buying it.
20. 16?!
manicdrummer ,   Madison, USA   (11.21.10)
I wasn't even allowed to wear makeup and skirts above the knees until I was 18!
21. #11; Rivkah, The problem with your idea
Mark from Georgia ,   USA   (11.22.10)
It is based on moral belief over pure science. The fact is a married woman who has a miscarriage is at the same high risk of developing breast cancer. So it's not just abortion, is it? Unless you feel the women who had the miscarriage deserved it, and maybe you do, I don't know. The problem is you seek to simplify a complicated issue and seek to push your morality and religious beliefs on everybody. I have a problem with that. The idea that all women who don't marry young are in fact sluts, as has been pointed out by others here is nonsense. It seems all religions have their extremes, and none of it seems all that great. The Ultra-religious whether from the Islamic, Christian, Jewish or any other religion, seems, for me, to be just to radical. The main difference is the Islamic religion makes up 20% of the world population. Meaning 1 out of every 5 people worldwide are Muslim, therefore more of a threat. While the Jewish religion only accounts for maybe 1 out of every 1000 people worldwide, therefore not a threat to same degree. It isn't surprising you back Ahmadinejad with regards to this issue. But it is sad. Again the difference, I would be OK with what you practice and never do anything to stop you, while you would never show people like me and Sarah the same consideration if you were in control.
22. 12 Observer: The Torah is written on my heart and has
Rivkah   (11.22.10)
been from earliest childhood. The sins of the fathers are not visited on the children of those who love YHWH. Read the Scripture. The sins of the fathers are visited on the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate YHWH. Anyone who loves YHWH escapes the generational curse.
23. 15 Jeremy, Michigan, USA: From page 36 and 37 of
Rivkah   (11.22.10)
John McTernon's book, "God's Final Warning to America": ABORTION AND BREAST CANCER THE DEADLY LINK (title of chapter). Over 1.5 million women abort their babies every year. But,what generally is not known by the public, is that scientists have found a deadly link between abortion and women who develop breast cancer later in life. There have been over 30 studies that have established this link; however, most Americans are unaware of this deadly link.....In November 1994, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) released a study conducted by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, Washington. The research showed a definite link between aboriton and the surge of breast cancer. This research also confirmed about 30 previous studies worldwide which had established this deadly link. These studies started in the 1960's, and since the late 1970's, this link has been known. Joel Brink, Ph.D., professor of biology and endocrimology at Baruch College of the City College of New York, has been crusading since 1982, to expose the danger of abortion as a major factor in causing breast cancer. Brink tried to get his research out to the public. He blanketed the media with press releases of his findings; however, not one single magazine, newspaper, or news service reported the findings. Brink contacted foreign medical journals, and his research was reported in a British medical journal The Lancet. His article in this journal was read by administrators at Mr. Sinai Medical center and Beth Israel Hospital where he held positions as a faculty member and research investigator respectively. As a result of this article, he was immediately fired from both positions. Brind's crusade has been ignored or trivialized by the media and the abortion industry. is it possible that these studies and Brind's crusade are being ignored, so that the killing of children can go on unhindered?...Thomost ominous finding of the study was, that every woman who had an aboriton before 18 and had a family history of breast cancer, developed the cancer by the age of 45... There is much more. Why not buy the book?

Birdi ,   Israel   (11.22.10)
Oh I am sure Sarah B. knows exactly what she is talking about. Its you who cant understand her reasoning as you are so shallow.
25. #22 then, why Jewish repentance?
observer   (11.22.10)
do you really believe that the sins of the Golden Calf still visit you?
26. 25: Observer: My dear, the sins of Adam still visit us.
Rivkah   (11.22.10)
The DNA for Adam was changed irreversibly when he sins and that affected ALL descendants of Adam. Since Adam was perfect before he sinned, the DNA change was everlasting for the human species. When the body is resurrected after death to eternal life for YHWH's elect, the body is reunited with the soul and lives forever as long as the person eats from the tree of life. The sins of a person do not affect his/her descendants for three and four generations IF the person loves YHWH and is chosen by YHWH. Many are called but few are chosen. YHWH chooses. In the Hebraic Roots Version Scriptures, Job was accepted by YHWH but his friends who slandered Job were only protected by YHWH when they repented and helped Job. They were not accepted by YHWH as Job was: their eternal souls were not saved. But Job's children's soul (his entire house) was saved eternally. Job's children did not suffer for generations from Job's sins since all people sin. Job's children were protected from his sins because Job was accepted by God. The people who slandered Job although they repented were not accepted by God, so their sins were visited on their children. The Golden Calf people whether the Hebrews in the wilderness or the later Golden Calf worship of the Northern Tribes of Israel was visited on their children to the four generation unless any of those descendants were accepted by God individually. Since the Golden Calf worshippers were not perfect as Adam was when he sinned, their sins were visited on the descendants only for four generations. Why were the Jews in disapora afflicted for more than four generations? I don't know. Perhaps they continued to sin in exile or perhaps YHWH's fury had to burn itself out and that took thousands of years.
27. 21 Mark from Georgia: Please read post #23.
That will answer some of your concerns. It is true that if your opinion or Sarah's opinion differ from YHWH's opinion as revealed in Scriptures, I cannot take your position if it is opposed to YHWH's. That upsets you and Sarah, but I didn't write the Scriptures. I just read them and relay them as best I can. People who do not believe in YHWH's laws are not subject to them. I cannot stope you if you don't apply YHWH's Scriptures in your lives since I have no power to control what you and Sarah do. I care enough to write to YNET but not enough to do more than that. So I do more than most people. You want me to show consideration to ways that are not YHWH's ways. I have to do that everyday, living in an imperfect world. But I will not call good, evil and evil, good. That makes me unpopular and hated. Better to be hated for being right with YHWH than to be adored following some other path. R.
28. #27;Rivkah, I know that link exists
Mark from Georgia ,   USA   (11.22.10)
I'm aware of the link between abortion and breast cancer. What I said was if a women has a miscarriage she has the same risk of developing breast cancer. I didn't know it was a secret. Because it is here: And here: Both of these articles are from the National Cancer Institute. So I didn't think it was a secret, secondly my Mom died of breast cancer and never had an abortion and lived the same sort life that you do. But apparently it did not matter, at least in her case. As I said it is a complicated issue, and I respect your right to live your life the way you see fit. As long as you don't push it on me. We do live in an imperfect world and you and I can agree to disagree, respectfully. You seem nice and I'll never put you down or attempt to make you feel bad, and you shouldn't, for following the old Testament. All I ask is the same in return, I'll always listen to what people have to say, in the end I do what I want, and what I think is right. Most people who know me think I'M a pretty nice guy, some have said, to nice. But that's OK too, because as Popeye the Sailor Man once said: "I yam what I yam and that's all that I yam". See ya later, I like you.
29. I AM AFRAID........................................#24
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (11.22.10)
The shallow thinking exists in you and Sarah as well.All you have to do is compile your country's statistics on the number of teenage pregnancy,abortions and the consequences that follow.Are you sure you read them?i am not so sure you do.I case of Sarah,she normally would abondon all her morale to accomodate criticising others.Are you,too,in the same boat?
30. Question for Rivkah
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (11.22.10)
Under what circumstances would you find abortion to be a permissible procedure?
