Belly Dancing Channel Banned In Egypt

So, how's that 'democracy' working out for you, Egypt?

From Southeast Missourian:

Egypt’s vice police on Thursday arrested the owner of a belly dancing TV station on suspicion of operating without a license, inciting licentiousness and facilitating prostitution, a security official said.

[...]

Early Thursday, Egyptian vice police raided an apartment in central Cairo where the station’s owner, Baligh Hamdy, had been running the operations and recording most of the videos, the security official said. Police confiscated tapes and video equipment and arrested Hamdy.

Confiscated? Yeah, that's the ticket ... The police need to "investigate" the tapes further in private. ;)

Gateway Pundit has more.

Now banned:
