As I mentioned before, YouTube has been blocked from the UAE after we posted our documentary Desert Nights.
One of our readers and blogger, Mark, lives in
Some of the highlights I am reposting so you can see what effect the exposing of trafficking to the UAE has had and to also better understand that this is not an Armenian issue, but a global epidemic.
I want to also mention that if the UAE blocks Google, I will be reposting the documentary on 2 servers and when they block those, 4, then 8 and so on. One way or the other, the word will get out and the more they block, the more they are admitting guilt of being involved (which our documentary shows they are and maybe that’s why they are blocking it).

you know Mark
Etisalat blocked the entire site of youtube from UAE because of this documentry
and because of this movie many other sites has been blocked even if it dose only have articles that talks about it, including (heqt.am)
Now, I think Etisalat has a strong reason to block google video, and your site!
I wish they don’t reach to your site at least
What is happening here is that they put laws and they go around it, like how Armenian girls enter
Armenians are not the only nationality which is involved in this business
many Asian ( Philippine and Indonesian ) women enter the country as housemades, they work all day as mades
and in midnight cars pick them from home and take them to hotels where they make money out of sex! ( I don’t know from where do they get all this energy to work 24 hours!)
Also there are many African come to

Prostitution is a serious problem in any society. Hell its the oldest proffession on Earth. To alow or put a blind eye on prostitution is simply carelessness and in part incriminating on the officials side. I don’t think Etisalat can block e-mails, and this should get to every UAE citizen, but then again what is the point. They all know it exists and they can’t talk about it or do anything about it. I’ve heard stories about prostitues locked up in some of the sheikhs palaces.

Hahahahaha…..Sorry Mar, but you are talking absolute rubbish.
Prostitution is “very much restricted to a few areas that are not :open” to the public”….what an absolute load of cack!!
Go to any of the following bars and you will see the prostitutes eyeing you up for a pickup:
Boudoir - supposed to be classy…instead it’s full of trashy Arab hookers lined across the bar
Trilogy - plenty of Eastern Europeans roaming around the outter bar areas.
Casbar - used to be a top place to go about 5 years ago, now it’s all hookers
Zinc - used to be full of Emirates Airlines - now all hookers
Long Bar - full of older Russian hookers looking for some action
Appartment - hookers lurk at the bar like a bad smell
-and that’s all off the top of my head. I haven’t even mentioned those other shit holes like Cyclone, Hyatt Regency, The Garage, Arif’s Castle or Embassy Suites, which are all renowned for their nastiness.
You obviously have never been out in
