Against Offensive Work: Jad Choueiri and his Videos sign now

To: Egyptian and Arabic Satellite channels and Networks (especially Music Channels like Music Now on Orbit, Melody, Mazzica and Rotana)
CC: Arabic Media Personnels and Local Television Channels and Networks.
We are writing this petition in order to show our deep anger and dissatisfaction with some of the material and the "artists" that your channels display, particularly the Arabic "Jad Choueiri" (singer and director).
Through his printed interviews and his video work, he has both shocked and offended most of the respectful Arabic viewers, both the liberals and the conservatives alike. He has disgraced art and artists by claiming that art does not represent a respectful message and by urging women to explicitly show their sexuality and expose their bodies. He also spoke about physical pleasure in a direct undignified manner. His interviews are provoking since they defy our Arabic and religious (whether Christian or Muslim) morals, traditions and our refined tastes.
Art is one of the highest levels of emotional and mental expression, a language by its own means and a measure of civilization. It should never be a tool in irresponsible, shameless and uncreative hands like Choueiri's. That would be totally unacceptable and intolerable.
Our role is to fight that trend that kills our polished taste, distracts and destroys our youth and sets corrupt role-models for our kids, mocks our religious beliefs and tears down the most important elements of our culture: self-respect and conservativeness.
We the undersigned- strongly urge you to:
- Stop airing offensive video-clips by or for "Jad Choueiri" or his likes, i.e. boycott their work.
- Stop airing or recording any interviews with him or his likes.
- Start a campaign against people who disgrace our culture, our religion and our art especially Jad Choueiri and his likes.
- Call on the Arabic officials to stop "Jad Choueiri" and his likes from pursuing or delivering (to the Arabic viewers) any of their work, unless it suits our culture and our tastes, serves the respectful cause of art and its superior message and does not upset our feelings or senses.
Your television and satellite channels enter our homes everyday, and their content is displayed to adults, teens and children alike. Help us in creating a healthy atmosphere full of respect and dignity inside our homes. Or else, we unregretful- would boycott your channels in order to preserve our self-respect and our morals and we will constantly petition against you and your work.
