I feel quite angry over what is going on regarding Hala Sarhan’s case.
My anger isn’t triggered because of my love for the successful TV hostess; it is more because of how people are determined to prove that we still live in the dark ages!
They are crucifying her because they claim she talked about a social taboo!
DO WE STILL HAVE SPEECH TABOOS?
For God sake, we live in the 21st century. Is there any civilized human being who didn’t hear of the *Internet*? And for those who did hear of it, do they know that people can practically post and read about anything you ever think of?
How come we can still try to hide our social problems in a world full of digital camera’s, eyes looking for the truth, satellite TV stations, and bloggers??!!
And why would we choose to keep on playing our old game of hiding our heads in the sand refusing to face our problems that are shining under the sun?!
Is there an insane mature person who is not aware that prostitution exists in every single country around the globe?
And How come discussing prostitution in Egypt trash the country in any way?
I heard that ATV, the new upcoming first Jordanian private Satellite TV station is preparing to talk about prostitution in Jordan on one of its talk shows.
Would they face the same attacks from our parliament members as Hala Sarhan faced in Egypt?
I certainly hope not. I want to believe that we do have more *social* freedom of speech than that.
