A Saudi city known for its ultra-conservatism has created its own version of the "Arabs Got Talent" television reality show, but with no music and women banned from taking part.
Saudi Arabia's Abdul Aziz Abdul Hamid wins the first award of the Star Academy, a pan-Arab television show produced by Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation, in Beirut in 2009. A Saudi city known for its ultra-conservatism has created its own version of the "Arabs Got Talent" television reality show, but with no music and women banned from taking part.
Instead, competitors will be permitted to perform religious chants, recite poems and engage in sports events.
The contest is being held north of the capital in the city of Buraydah, known as a centre for Wahhabism, a strict interpretation of Islam that is followed in the desert kingdom, Al-Hayat daily reported on Sunday.
"Buraydah's Got Talent" is the title of the contest which will abide by the strict rules of segregation between the sexes, meaning it is not open to women.
Music, singing and dancing are strict no-nos, despite being staples in "Britain's Got Talent" and similar talent competitions that have become a global viewing phenomenon with national versions televised in 32 countries.
The Saudi version, organised by the Internet Buraydah Forum, will take place in the open air before a jury comprising a poet, a television producer and TV presenters, Al-Hayat said, quoting forum supervisor Jalawi al-Shukair.
The Dubai-based Saudi television group MBC has for two seasons been running "Arabs Got Talent," and a Saudi group is among this year's finalists.
...and the prize for detonation of a suicide pack is posthumously awarded to Sheik Ahmad Yerbutti
We should do these pitiful subhumans a favor and just nuke them to oblivion.
“CAMEL FORNICATING” IS A TALENT?
Sporting events? OMG!!! I can chuck a rock at a supposed adulterer that'd make Nolan Ryan take a second look.
A pansy who lived in Khartoum,
Took a lesbian up to his room,
And they argued all night
Over who had the right
To do what, and with which, and to whom!
They could read dirty limericks for the Arab Guts Talent Show....
“...”Arabs Got Talent” television reality show...”
I’ll bet that 10sec show goes quickly.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "Allah has sent me as a mercy to the universe and as a guidance to the universe, and my Lord, Who is Great and Glorious, has commanded me to annihilate stringed instruments, wind instruments, idols, crosses and pre-Islamic customs.
Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious. ... (Political thought and legacy of Khomeini)
Let's see, as a "True Believer" of the "Religion of Pieces" one is not allowed to:
Be in the presence of members the female persuasions not a family member or spouse.
Generally, have fun....
So where to I go to git' me an application to join this "cult?"
Next competitor will exhibit his talent for cutting off the heads of infidels.
Season finale will consist of suicide bombers.
>Instead, competitors will be permitted to perform religious chants, recite poems and engage in sports events.
LOL! That should burn up the airwaves!
