Deported from Saudi Arabia for being "too handsome."

"Meet Omar Borkan Al Gala, the devilishly beautiful man who might just be one of the three deported from Saudi Arabia last week for the crime of being too gorgeous."
Religious police in the deeply conservative Muslim country reportedly stormed a stand manned by delegates from the United Arab Emirates at the Jenadrivah Heritage & Culture Festival. The three hotties were evicted from the festival, then deported to the UAE because they were so handsome that police “feared female visitors could fall for them,” the Arabic-language newspaper Elaph reported....

Borkan Al Gala isn’t doing much to stop the speculation. He continues to post glam beauty shots accompanied by swoon-inducing quotes: “The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides"...
The quote seems to mean that a woman is beautiful if, when she is looking at you, her eyes reveal that she thinks you are beautiful.

Had the same happen in Arkansas. Had all my teeth.

Ah, those wacky muslims.

Adorable, except when they bomb you.

Mark O said...

Brad Pitt and I don't live there. What does that tell you?

mccullough said...

Looks like he's wearing eye-liner.

Matthew Sablan said...

So... they were too handsome for this country? Lyrics parody: Now.

Colonel Angus said...

There is something seriously wrong with those people.

Colonel Angus said...

Then again maybe it wasn't the women the Saudis were worried about. I heard buggery is popular with that group.

great Unknown said...

And here I thought that I couldn't get a Saudi visa because I visited Israel.

LarsPorsena said...

I'm guessing he caused a bunch of woodies and sweaty palms amongst the religious police.

Mitchell the Bat said...

I'd have expected larger pores.

I'm too sexy for this turban?

Beta Rube said...

That's a mighty fine looking camel.

Titus said...

OMG...thank you. Amazing. I am fanning myself right and breathing heavy.

Allah Akbar take me.

Oh lordy lordy...look who's 40.

I want him really fucking bad.

Muzzie hog is so foreign and guilty and dangerous which of course makes it all the more hot.

tits.

Inga said...

Indeed! He is handsome, but my advice to him, lay off the eyeliner a bit.

Mary Beth said...

He needs to give his PR people a raise.

Give me a break. Try that on some girl and watch her laugh her ass off. It only works when you're an exotic foreigner, not some yokel from Minneapolis.

Ann Althouse said...

A body like yours
Oughta be in jail
'Cause it's on the verge of bein' obscene

Darleen said...

The headshot is seriously photoshopped, which if done correctly, one leaves some skin texture otherwise you get the plastic smoothness you see in that picture.

Calypso Facto said...

Are his eyes different colors? Or did someone just get careless with the Photoshopping in that first pic?

Methadras said...

So, it looks like metro's exist even in the ME. Interesting.

Titus said...

The eyes are amazing.

You know he has a nice Camel Cock.

Forbidden Muzzie sex=powerful.

LordSomber said...

Why don't they just make him wear a burqa? He can still charm the ladiez with his dreamy eyes.

MadisonMan said...

Now, why did I just know Titus would be commenting?

madAsHell said...

Al Gala ??

There's a place, or family in Saudi Arabia called Gala?? I don't think so.

I'm thinking he plays for both teams, and he had enough connections (yeah....bad pun) to avoid being stoned.

MadisonMan said...

And it's not eyeliner. It's guyliner.

Ironclad said...

Maybe not for being too handsome, but for flirting with the females in the audience? He looks a lot like many younger Saudis, they don't age well at all.

Probably had a picture of a female on his mobile phone too! The horror

Titus said...

I would love the beard against my flat stomach lightly moving back and forth as the eyes were looking up at me....and then I would push it's head down and it would slowly begin to devour my hog....all the way to the pruned pube area.

thanks.

tits.

Paco Wové said...

I'm
too sexy for my land
too sexy for my land
so sexy they had to ban...
(me)

edutcher said...

If he was a she, they'd have just lopped off his/her head.

TosaGuy said...

He now has the best pick-up line ever.

Drago said...

We have much to learn from our non-white non-European brothers and sisters.

Nomennovum said...

I'm calling bullshit on this story. Are we expected to believe that a country that whips women for improperly draping their bodies from head to toe in order to avoid tempting men will deport a man for tempting women?

Saudi Arabia would more likely arrest such women and pluck out their eyes.

Re: Althouse:

“The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides"... The quote seems to mean that a woman is beautiful if, when she looking at you, her eyes reveal that she thinks you are beautiful.

Or that, you know, she's wearing a full abaya so you can't see anything else. Because it's Saudi Arabia (I guess they're more liberal in the UAE).

el polacko said...

gotta give those 'morality police' props for being able to pick out the hotties in the crowd.

EDH said...

As I always say, "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful."

Smilin' Jack said...

Not to me. I don't even notice if a woman has eyes.

James Pawlak said...

The baby camel was better looking. Those police could have balanced out the "beauty force" by putting me in the stand.

whoresoftheinternet said...

This has happened to me once, in several countries. :P

Luckily, in the US, this is "lookism" and "heteronormative behavior." So the ugly people aren't excluded.

Then all the bitches sucked my dick anyway.

Ah, college.

Enjoy the decline, asshats!

ed said...

Sorry but when I saw "Bork" all I could think of was The Swedish Chef.

I always figured you for a Vienna Sausage guy.

Palladian said...

The eyeliner people keep referring to is kohl, which has been used by men and women in many parts of the world for thousands of years. Unfortunately it's traditionally made out of galena, which is a lead ore, lead(II) sulfide I think, which doesn't seem like a healthy eye-area cosmetic.

Palladian said...

This man is handsome, but many young Arab men, especially Saudis & Emiratis, are very handsome. However, as someone has already mentioned, many of them don't age very well, so get them while they're fresh, firm & smooth.

Rob said...

I can empathize. I was forced to leave New Haven for the same reason.

James said...

LOL... those photos have been extensively retouched...so much skin smoothing has been done you can't see any natural texture. That's what happens when you overuse the Gaussian Blur filter.

Well he's the Sheik of Araby
Your love belongs to he

Well at nights when you're asleep
Into your tent he'll creep

a-ha

The stars that shine above
will light your way to love

You rule this world with he
He's the Sheik of Araby

Æthelflæd said...

Let me tell you 'bout Ahab the Arab
The Sheik of the burning sand
He had emeralds and rubies just dripping off a him
And a ring on every finger of his hands

He wore a big ol' turban wrapped around his head
And a scimitar by his side
And every evening about midnight
He'd jump on his camel named Clyde and ride

Silently through the night to the Sultan's tent
Where he would secretly meet up with Fatima of the Seven Veils
Swingingest grade A number one U.S. choice dancer
In the Sultan's whole harem

'Cause heh, him and her had a thing going
You know and they'd been carrying on for some time now
Behind the Sultan's back and you could hear him talk to his camel
As he rode out across the dunes
His voice would cut through the still night desert air


That great poet, Ray Stevens

Lem said...

And now we go live, reporting from the front lines, somewhere in the house of Saud is our fearless correspondent, boots on the ground Titus...

What's going on !?

Æthelflæd said...

This is your action news reporter once again, and we're here at the gas
station. Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened?

(Witness):
Yeah, I did. I's just in here gettin my car checked, he just appeared
out of the traffic. Come streakin' around the grease rack there, didn't
have nothin' on but a smile. I looked in there, and Ethel was gettin'
her a cold drink. I hollered, "Don't look, Ethel!" But it was too
late. She'd already been mooned. Flashed her right there in front of
the shock absorbers.

Amartel said...

They cover up tempting women but throw tempting men out of the country. Full tilt sexual panic. Can't let other priorities interfere with the GodState. So they degrade the women and cover them up and throw out the men.

Amartel said...

Gawd, The Streak - memories from the early formative years.

After Ethel sees a couple of streakers, doesn't she strip
down, too.

"Ethel, put your clothes on!"

Æthelflæd said...

Who would have thought 'ol Ray would have been so relevant to modern Islamic social policy?

Kelly said...

I have Midnight at the Oasis running through my head now. That song was always fascinatingly terrible. Thanks for that.
