Default Arabic Idol...one brave lady.

"Tonight, Hissa Hilal, a mother-of-four from Saudi Arabia, takes to the stage in the last round of a competition that she has taken by storm with a scathing critique of the conservative clerics who hold sway in her country. Her poetry has earned her the praise of the judges, the acclaim of the viewing public – and more than a few death threats."

Default Re: Arabic Idol...one brave lady.

I watched a doc last night about a young British /Afghan girl who went to Afghan to find her roots. (she hated it) They have a programme called Afghan Model, some of the girls who wanted to take part also had death threats.
