@LIZZIE: There may be no written dress codes but I think in many areas you mentioned it’s a cultural expectation to dress on the moderate side. But then again, I haven’t visited all those regions, so if you have, you may have more knowledge than I in that area.
Historically and ethnically, no, Iran does not belong to the same group as “Arab” middle easterners do, but geographically, I believe so although I can see why some don’t consider this to be true. They share many of the same cultural traits as well. I know of some who make the distinction of being from Iran, but often consider themselves, or consider their homeland as part of the middle eastern region.
“The Iranians hate the Middle Easterns, they are jealous of them and loathe them.” Can you explain this to me? Who hates who and why?

riri fans discussing the middle east problem. hahahahahahahah

Stop criticizing her for covering her head.

Seeing that she is a celebrity she could have gone around being a diva in a mini dress and thigh high boots, but instead she chose a summer long maxi dress, flat sandals and covered her head, back and chest with a scarf.

I think it is nice that she took their cultural views into consideration and chose to dress a lot more modestly than she usually does.

@Kitt: Sorry, but I concern myself with more than just who Rihanna is f-cking and how bad her hair may be.

Try moving past the shallowness, sweetie.

@Maja: maybe to you but Im an arab and I dont find it offensive at all. Especially since the majority of girls these days don’t wear a hijab. And the ones who do, have half their hair falling out anyway. And the celebs arent even muslims! So if they decide to cover up out of respect, I think that’s great! And it makes me respect them a little more =)

@Maja: and the rest:
obviously none of you know that a lot of girls and women use wigs instead of an hijab to cover their hair/head??? Rihanna looks “perfect”. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now if only she’d cover her monkey face…

lalalalallalalalallalala @ 05/29/2010 at 9:53 am

CAREY MULLIGAN IS A DIRTY ****!!!!!

lalalalallalalalallalala @ 05/29/2010 at 9:54 am

S/UT!!!!

I don’t think she bleached her hair. I think its just a weave people!

I study there !!! WOW I didn’t know she’ll be there!

Holy ****! She’s stunning!!

Rihanna is dressed like that because she is visiting the Holy Sites, i.e. the Churches, Mosques and the Western Wall in Jerusalem. In every country people wear respectful clothing for such visits and I can remember not being able to enter a church in Italy because I was wearing shorts.

As an Israeli I deplore the anti-Moslem comments posted by some people claiming to be Israelis. We are a multi racial society with other 22% of our population being minorities (Arab Christians, Arab Moslems, Druze etc) all of whom enjoy full democratic rights. As for the Israeli-Palestian conflict, I pray for a peace settlement but this will depend on BOTH sides being interested. The Palestinians have been offered a very fair settlement of 97% return of their land on two occasions both of which they refused. Israel withdrew from Gaza five years ago and they are still shelling us instead of concentrating on building factories and making better lives for their people. We have extremists in Israel as well but the vast majority of our people seek peace, but a peace which will give us security and not constant wars.

@Tiffany82: um rihanna stopped wearing weaves when “good girl gone bad” came out. thats obviously her real hair. she bleached it

Thank you Rihanna for coming to Israel
We love you!

I love Israel!!!!

@ben: you are not alone! :)

Free Palestine! @ 05/30/2010 at 12:05 pm

It is spelt MUSLIM not Moslem!

Welcome Rihanna. We are so glad to have you here.
Unlike Elvis Costelo the jerk.

@Maja: I ABSOLUTELY agree with you. They looks so dumb when they do it, I mean 3/4 of them don’t know the significance of it and by doing so they are making a mockery of the people’s culture. It’s things like these why the world hates Americans.

@kara: yeah Palestines kill ppl just like the US soldiers who go to Iraq and kill so America could plunder Iraq’s resources. Go take a history lesson and please read the news. Why oh why are my country ppl so ignorant???

Thanks a lot you for this post. Thats all I can say. You most without a doubt have constructed this webpage into something speciel. You clearly know what you are working on, youve covered so many corners.thanks
