A raunchy Lebanese singer is causing controversy in Bahrain, where she is due to perform for the first time.
All but one of the members of the Gulf kingdom's Islamist-dominated parliament have approved a motion urging the government to ban Haifa Wehbe's show.
They objected on the grounds that the pop superstar's performance would be sexually provocative, violating Islamic conventions and Bahrain's traditions.
Organisers had earlier promised she would dress modestly during the show.
Four years ago, MPs forced the satellite channel MBC to suspend the production of an Arabic version of Big Brother being filmed in Bahrain because it offended "the virtues and traditions of the Arab world".

I envisioned something like the butterfly effect...
More amazing than her looks is the fact that she is a Muslim AND STILL ALIVE.
Her ex-husband has kept her daughter from her for 10 years.
“Hell! She can sing for me if shes mute!”
Here you go. Entirely work safe by western standards, but may cause Islamists to blow their stacks.
Personally, she ain’t all that to me. She can’t really sing, and I find her cheap-looking and obvious. The crowd of young males loves her, though.
“More amazing than her looks is the fact that she is a Muslim AND ...” we can see her.
but you hit the nail on the head...now some twerpy mullah will probably issue a fatwa.
If only camels could sing, there would have been no problem in the first place.
And if sheep could cook, the devout Muslim male could dispense with women altogether.
Great line. LOL
you mean hum a few.... lol
I think someone else had to give them fire.
oh how I yearn for my ancestral homeland. LOL!!
She can also whip up a mean dish of kebab, hummus and tabouleh.
This is funny because they built a causeway to Bahrain from Al Khobar so Saudi’s would have a place they could drive to sin.
I knew her Mama !!.........:o)
Heard about that.
Wonder if they refer to it as the “highway to hell” the rest of the week...hypocritical b*stards.
a very nice pose here:
