Asharq Alawsat: "Intifadah" against "mediocre dialog"

An uprising against the indecent and the humdrum?
This loud cry of "enough" emanated last Saturday from a group of Saudi female academicians and educated women during the inauguration of the "Association for the Call for Virtue in the Information Media."

According to the Internet web site of the group in question, the inauguration of their association is an intifadah against any Arab satellite TV channel that broadcasts Arab or foreign subtitled serials showing marital adultery, nude scenes, Kissing, intimate encounters, and mediocre dialogue.
They're nothing if not comprehensive.
