We have yet another prosecution in Egypt in the name of public morality. Reda el-Fouly is shown dancing in a low-budget clip entitled “Hands Off,” or “Sib Eddi” in Egyptian Arabic. The clip below contains no nudity but a lot of sensual moves to the music of a singer named Mena. That was enough to arrest el-Fouly and seek the arrest of her boyfriend, Wael Elsedeki.
She has been charged with “inciting debauchery” after Ahmed Bakly and his fellow prosecutors concluded that the video “disrupted morality” — whatever that might mean.
The boyfriend left the country for Tunisia.
So a dancing woman in Egypt is an alleged felon for endangering the morality of the country. If it only takes the sight of a dancing woman to disrupt morality in Egypt, the country would seem to be overwhelmingly predisposed to debauchery.
