I certainly wouldn't say that the Arabs are "in a deeply conservative region". TEXANS are "in a deeply conservative region."
ARABS are "IN A DEEPLY 7TH CENTURY REGION" !

Lol...I don't believe in censorship, but given the Lebanese national pastime of starting a civil war every time somebody looks at somebody funny, I can somewhat understand why they might seek to avoid the showing of a film that would be the practical equivalent of screening "Birth of a Nation" outside a Nation of Islam mosque.
