"The show "Dallas" was playing in Algeria in 1981-1982 all the way till late 80s. the show was given to Algeria by The state department for their involvemnt in freeing the hostages from Iran. Most of the American shows end up in Muslim countries like Morroco, Algeria, Tunisia, Malysia..and so forth. Dont know much about middle Eastern countries."

what this is supposed to mean? that women in muslim lands are liberated because they watch dallas?

LOL, the west has been flooded by soap operas coming from south america, but this doesn't mean that the average western woman became like a semi-heroine of those kind.

Submitting....
