That's what the local Islamist party, PAS, ought to realize one of these days, anyway. Seems the scripture crazed muppets are at it again, this time trying to ban Rihanna's concert, scheduled for 13 Feb. Their arguments against her performing summarized below:
- "...akin to insulting eastern culture, belittling local artistes, intentionally causing losses to the country's economy and supporting Israel's war policy, which is supported by America."
- "... unsuitable because she often performed suggestively and wore skimpy, sexy outfits."
- "Whether Rihanna realizes it or not, we know that the taxes she paid also contributed to the war in Gaza."

Do bear in mind that Comrade Condell lives in the same country as these fine specimens, so I daresay his position is very much justified indeed.
