Damascus prostitutes go to war
Albawaba.com ^ | 4 January 2005 | No Byline

Posted on 01/20/2005 2:32:36 AM PST by Racehorse

As the war in Iraq continues, a different kind of “war” has been going on for months now in neighboring Syria – one that has its roots, among others, in the aftermath of Saddam’s ouster.

In past few months, a mini “world war” has been taking place between prostitutes in Syria: the many immigrants from Iraq have simply “stolen” the jobs of the local girls. However, the Syrian wh***s have decided not to surrender and have engaged in war by spreading rumors, claiming, “The immigrants are all sick with AIDS”.

In recent months, the wh***s working in Damascus have complained about the “aggressive conquering” of their clientele by foreign workers. The market of wh***s, as well as other markets, has suffered due to the wave of immigration from neighboring Iraq.

A Syrian intellectual has said that the number of wh***s in Damascus stands at 30,000, however a source in the Iraqi consulate in the city said this estimate was an exaggeration. In any case, it is clear the Iraqi wh***s have flooded the neighboring country following the fall of Saddam’s regime – either out of fear for their lives due to killings by local religious groups or out of a keen desire to find new clients.

In this situation, in which the Syrian prostitute market has been flooded by wh***s from Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia and more, the local girls found themselves entangled in quite a problem; their business was at stake. They decided to take revenge in a unique manner by spreading rumors in the Syrian capital saying the Iraqi women had AIDS…

. . . Syrian regime has been so concerned over this phenomenon that it decided to enact a law in which every Iraqi convicted of dealing with prostitution will be jailed and consequently deported from Syria.

Well, with the veil on, how do you tell if they're Syrian or Iraqi?

This is yet another.

It is interesting that such a religious part of the world would have who*es! They slander my people for immorality. They accuse us of poorly treating our women. They would severe my infidel head for the Internet glory and marketing campaign of Allah. Yet, they have who*es!

Insha Allah.

So, let me ask, in islamic nut countries, like syria, iran and indonesia, if one is caught stealing, he or she has his or her hand(s) cut off. I'm not sure I want to know the answer, but, what do you suppose is the penalty for being caught in the act of prostitution for an iraqi, shall we say, woman.

The one on the far right looks like a cross-dressing linebacker in sup-hose. Market is covered, I reckon.

No, it's call "Truth In Advertising"...LOL

BTW Skypilot, about that picture? Add a few more pounds to that camel in the black and white print skirt and you just might have the backside of the junior Senator from New York.

Mighta' been. Don't watch much TV myself but, now that you mention it, does seem vaguely familiar. Maybe ping the Budweiser connoisseurs for confirmation? ;-)

Only in Iran and Saudi Arabia. Syria, Indonesia, Iraq, Egypt etc. have secular govt's. The penalties are similar to the penalties in the US.
