omg dont get me started! i hate how they twist things around in this novela lool. ok first of all no arab man calls a woman a hen. goodness! no guy would be that stupid in real life.
yeah the love between latiffa and mohammad is really sweet, but believe me the misconceptions u see about muslims and how the men aren't good to the women and there is no love and stuff isnt true. i know that we always see stuff on the news about how arab men beat their wives, but its condemned in islam as something terrible. there are many men who are mean to their wives and many coulples who have bad relationships reguardless of culture or religion.
just wanted to clear some stuff up, sorry for going on and on lol.

I'm confused.

Are you saying the misconceptions are in real life or in this novela? You said this novela twists everything. It seems to me this novela shows people as people. Some are loving and some are not. There's nothing twisted, biased, mistaken or misconceived about that.

When you consider what's been in the news every day over the past two and a half years, I think that "El Clon" has put Islam and Arabic/Moroccan culture in a better light than any other medium anywhere else. We have learned more about all the positive aspects of these cultures than we possibly could have otherwise.

Be happy for that.

Tio Ali, who must have a doctorate in philosophy, presents the rational view and bends over backward to tolerate and support his family within religious teachings. He is admirable and presents many other aspects as well in a logical light. Even Abu appears to me not to be a fanatic within his own environment, just very literal and strict. However, the woman in a prison everywhere she looks aspect and more than one wife seem to me to be very offensive. No amount of gold or protection can make up for individual freedom and living in a state of fear. Poor prima who is in constant fear that her husband will take another wife. Overall, I think the novela presents the characters in a friendly yet realistic light. What I particularly like with the Moroccan characters is the sense of playfulness, innocence, and comedy. By contrast, the Brazilian characters, Yvetee excepted, tend to be on the dramatic side.

Kathleen, just because El Clon overall portrays Muslims/Morroccans in a bitter light than any other medium, does not, mean that it is enough. Jade has the right to expect more, this is 2004 after all.

…/…..you are not the only muslim..

on this board.I'm a born Muslim and I don't see anything wrong or twisted in this novela this is A NOVELA.a fiction based on some research by the a very good author..she has taken differnt aspects of Islamic life and added her own imagination and made a novela..a beautiful one at that..
the charaters in this novela are fictional what they say or do are based on the truth but not the whole TRUTH..you can't deny that..
there are some things that ARE exaggerated,but then that is the whole concept of the novela
that's why we are enjoying it so much..they are not insulting any Muslim countries,or muslim people & their believes..they are using Islamic costumes and believes and adding teir own imagination .
I haven't been participating in this forum that much..but I can't help but notice that some posters don't like the way they are showing Islam in El Clon.
then why watch something that in your opinion is twisted or offensive?
