Arab Dancers Furious at ChileVision

(Click Here) to see our previous LatinArabia post about an Arab Dancer who made it to Talent Chile. She was a big hit.
Note: There is a view of topless in the screenshoot, but the video itself is pixelated. Sorry, I usually do not post adult images, but this was for information purposes.
2nd Note: The protest was so furious, that the video has been pulled from the web. If you click the video start button, it now says private. I leave the link up only as a record.

Of course!  She was a big hit.   She went topless!

The problem is: Arabs, even Christian Arabs, are a morally conservative lot; and they are furious about this.  Chilean society is very conservative, even the non-Arab Christian majority.   This was not the country to go topless on a major TV program; and especially with a conservative Arabs, even though they are Christian.

This is not just Arab-Chileans.  A lot of non-Arabs take up Arab dancing as an art form.  They do not like it being degraded.  The art form has been embraced by Latin American women.   They are all furious.

This was put up on the web, two days ago.  They are furious about the incident.

Look at this:

Chilean Protest against Vulgar Dancer
I usually do not post adult images, but this is what the protestors posted on the net.

Calling all teachers and students of Arab  Dance in the country to a
PROTEST  at the offices of ChileVision to make it known to the executives
of this channel  and the country  that …

THIS  IS NOT ARAB DANCE

Enough of presenting the profession and passion of a decent people
as a nudist spectacular, vulgar, and of bad taste.

Date:  Thursday, October 31st.
Place:  Metro Manuel Montt
Time:  10:30 AM

They really were upset. Videos of Miss Gonzalez’s dance have been pulled from YouTube.

99% of Chile’s Arabs are Christian. So this is not Muslim outrage.  Many teachers and students of Arab Dancing are not even ethnic Arabs.  This is cultural outrage.

Arab Dancing on Talent Chile


I usually do not post adult images, but I leave this here for information purposes.
Oct 31 Note:  The video so enraged Arab Dancers that it has been pulled from
YouTube sources.   They were furious that Arab Dancing, which they consider to
be an art form, was treated as if  it were a "nudist spectacular"

As noted many times, Arabic Dancing is mainstream in Chile. The dancer has a Spanish surname, not Arabic: Karen Gonzalez

If you pay attention, her chest was pixelated because she was topless. A lot of comments on YouTube disparaged the dancer for her style, and vulgarity.

That’s all anyone can practice this beautiful dance feel to at least watch the video, as distasteful, rude and vulgar, that, gentlemen Belly is not here or on Mars, or the “dress”, or dancing and attitude, by God!

Such demonstrations all they do is smear a dance so beautiful, a culture as rich as the Egyptian ….. anyway ……. THAT HORRIBLE!!

What is clear that whether she was good or not, respectful or vulgar, Arab culture has influenced Latin culture in South America.
