Da’esh Is Coming: Lebanon To Ban Porn

IMG_0669.JPG

Move away Game of Thrones, Lebanon is in full swing to make sure the ground is fertile – no pun – for our very own dark aged winter.

After minster of Justice Achraf Rifi decided there’s nothing more important than to go after those who burned the ISIS flag in Achrafieh, our ministry of telecommunication, spear-headed by Abdul Menhem Youssef, is aiming to stop Lebanese citizens from watching porn, by banning ISPs and Internet providers from letting citizens access a select number of sites, which are:

1) teenport.com,
2) metart-gallery.com,
3) smallteenpussy.com,
4) xnxx.com,
5) xivdeos.com,
6) teensnow.com.

Didn’t you hear, people? Our government is all about making sure the collective morals of the Lebanese community remain intact. After all, is there anything other than porn in Lebanon today that could be leading to the massive and tangible decline in manners?

Oh wait.

In the grand scheme of Lebanese things, we have other liberties being violated than the freedom to have a wider array of porn websites. As it stands, other porn websites will still remain available for whoever likes to feast their senses and bodily fluids, but what precedence are we setting with such measures, especially at a time like this when there are much, much graver things that warrant bans?

At the top of my head, before banning porn, the ministry of telecommunication should ban access to every single video on the internet showing anyone, especially Lebanese army personnel, being killed by Da’esh.

The ministry of telecommunication should also consider banning websites or platforms whose sole purpose is to perpetuate the message of ISIS, effectively making sure gullible minds don’t fall prey to it.

Between the arrest of 27 men recently for engaging in homosexual acts at a local Beiruti Hammam, and the current war against porn websites, one cannot but wonder what is this ongoing onslaught by the Lebanese establishment against sex lately?

If I were the Lebanese minister of telecommunication, I wouldn’t ban any porn websites. I would propagate them, aggressively so, hoping that some youth out there would get the release it needs to ease the horned up tension among the Lebanese populace. It’s not a coincidence that the more liberated a society is, sexually, the more peaceful it is.

But forget about all that, today Lebanese telecom ministry is telling Da’esh and its likes, with perhaps small but significant steps: Let them cum.

    • I’m assuming you are referring to the one with teen in the title.

      Teen porn is not illegal when models are aged 18 and 19. Underage porn is banned all over the world.

      So these websites are technically lot illegal. If they were, they’d be banned at the country of origin, not just here.

    • If that’s supposed to be a justification let them allow the atrocities done and sex slavery of women and children by ISIS. Maybe some people don’t like professional porn just perverted amateur stuff done in the name of religion. Halal!

      • It’s not remotely a justification. I oppose censorship. I’m just trying to understand the rationale behind this move.

        I’ve worked against censorship for 2 years now. Porn websites isn’t a usual target

  1. الهجوم على يوسف كان “مضخماً”، فالناشطون عبر مواقع التواصل الاجتماعي، لم يعرفوا سبب وجود هذا البيان؟ ولماذا تم حجب هذه المواقع وليس غيرها الموجودة بالآلاف في العالم الافتراضي؟

    أما السبب… ؟!

    النيابة العامة التمييزية أمرت بحجب هذه المواقع لبثها ما يحرض على التحرش بالاطفال. وافادت مصادر قضائية “النهار” ان الانتربول البريطاني طلب من الانتربول الدولي التحري عن مجهول يجري تحميلا على هاتفه الخليوي لاشرطة فيديو عن تحرش بالاطفال والقاصرين. ونتيجة التحقيقات التي اجرتها السلطات البريطانية توصلت الى ان شحصا يستعمل هذه الاشرطة عبر هاتفه.

    وفتح النائب العام التمييزي القاضي سمير حمود تحقيقاً وكلف مكتب مكافحة الجرائم والمعلوماتية التقصي عن الامر وتمكنوا من الدخول الى الموقع الالكتروني العائد الى احد اللبنانيين وتوقيفه. وبالتحقيق معه اعترف انه بنتيجة مشاهدته اشرطة الفيديو على المواقع الالكترونية الستة تولد لديه نوعاً من الانحراف الجنسي للتحرش باطفال خارج لبنان .وتبيّن انه مريض نفسي بمعاينة الطبيب الاختصاصي فترك رهن التحقيق بعد توقيفه ليخضع للعلاج. وتبيّن من حاسوبه وجود ستة مواقع اباحية امر القاضي حمود بحجبها. وثمة حملة عالمية لمكافحة ظاهرة التحرش بالاطفال فيما لا يزال الانتربول الدولي يتعقب واضعي هذه الاشرطة.

  2. I’ve heard that the real reason they are being blocked is to reduce bandwidth consumption. I read somewhere that a LOT of the internet traffic in Lebanon in porn-based; in fact, I also heard that one of those one-man-ISPs Lebanon seems to be in abundance of created a website and uploaded the most commonly watched porn videos in order to save significant operating costs. Between that and “morality issues”, it’s not difficult to explain this whole thing.

    Fucking pathetic.

  4. I’m 100% against censorship; however, this seems to be a case of illegal pornography being showcased on these specific websites, as mentioned by a previous comment.
    You replied that two of the banned sites are very popular, but this doesn’t justify 2 main points:
    1) what about the other 4 less popular sites?
    2) what about the most popular sites?

    I mean if you decide to ban websites offering general videos, you’d first ban youtube YouTube and Vimeo before banning say Daily Motion.

    I hope you would look more into this issue and update this post; and I hope I’m right, coz else if I’m proven wrong it means this is pretty effed-up situation.
