The Meaning of Miss Muslim USA


The explosion in the blogosphere about the crowning of a Muslim Miss USA comes at a time when Americans have been tested to the limit, at least for the many patriots who recognize the threats to the American way of life since the declaration of the War on Terror.

Some pressing issues: Questions about Barack Obama’s Muslim sympathies are still unresolved, complicated by his pitiful bowing to American enemies and plans to build a mosque on ground zero, a site of grief and trauma for New Yorkers and fellow empathizers.  So now with the crowning of a Muslim Miss America, it should come as no surprise that questions will be raised.   Rima Fakih has become more than a beauty queen.  She has become the battle ground between those critical of her crown (branded as racists) and politically correct appeasers.

From the moment he took office, Obama’s posture has served to divide America, racially and otherwise:  he took to insulting long-standing American allies while apologizing for America’s sins among the country’s worst enemies.  Obama snubbed British Prime Minister Gordon Brown on a visit to the White House right after he took office.  More recently his deplorable treatment of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has left Israel aghast.  Then there was his reading of the riot act to Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai, and his promise to unveil a detailed strategy on nuclear nonproliferation in the middle of a War on Terror. To top it off, the Obama administration’s support for illegal immigration at the expense of hard-working American citizens and the president bowing to foreign tyrants:

President Obama has disgraced the United States – again. During this week’s nuclear summit in Washington, he bowed when greeting Chinese President Hu Jintao.

The act was not only shocking but revealing. Mr. Obama has come under intense criticism for bowing to leaders in the past – the king of Saudi Arabia, the emperor of Japan. But never before has America’s commander in chief prostrated himself to a foreign tyrant on U.S. soil.

By bowing, Mr. Obama degraded and cheapened the office of the presidency; as commander in chief, he represents every American when meeting with other heads of state. He is supposed to embody the dignity of the Oval Office, reflecting our collective heritage as a self-governing, constitutional republic.

Sadly, the crowning of Rima Fakih as Miss America comes at a bad time and has raised questions among the political Right.  Among them, conservative scholar Daniel Pipes who asserted in his blog that this and five other recent Muslim beauty pageant winners in the West indicate “an odd form of affirmative action.”

For even posing this question, Pipes was branded a racist:

That rate of wins is enough to send Daniel Pipes to the moon. This is a perfect example of how some people are brainwashed to think one person who’s white and female should be a beauty standard, and someone of color like Rima Fakih could only win a contest due to affirmative action. His view is so sick it makes me sick.

And let’s not forget, this not the first time that politics has run rough shod over the Miss USA pageant.  Carrie Prejean—despite the scandal surrounding her that followed—faced a grilling by openly gay blogger Perez Hilton about her conservative views regarding gay marriage.  Did the left come to her rescue?  No, she was then taken to the woodshed.

Keith Lewis, who runs the Miss California competition, tells FOXNews.com that he was “saddened” by Prejean’s statement. Associated Press.

So could it be true that Rima Fakih’s win represented affirmative action in action?  She is undeniably beautiful and the countdown of any beauty pageant is a close one, so who could prove either way?  At least we can still entertain discourse in our superior way of life:  democracy.

There is a win-win to this for all those who support freedom:  Rima Fakih is an icon of a liberated Muslim. She would be brutally murdered under strict Shariah law—yes under those inferior cultures—for not wearing a head covering, let alone baring skin for a swimsuit competition.  Leftists can meditate on that as they contemplate how to berate America — and make excuses for Islamic gender apartheid — the next time around.

    Zennie62 is a moron. Since when is the sharmuta Rima Fakih a person of color?

    • betty boop

      I totally agree, Gary. Color-wise she's a ringer for my half French, half-English-Irish-Scottish- German American daughter. What color does that make her? She's beautiful, whatever color she is. Good luck to her, and may her head remain attached to her fabulous body.

      • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

        She's as white as most other Europeans. The only one calling her a person of color is that Zennie62 clown.

        • Rhonda

          Her skin is not white, it's brown. And yes she is strikingly beautiful!!

      • Fed Up

        Don't call him "Gary", betty boop – he's not "Gary Rumain". There isn't one "Gary Rumain" in all of Australia – or New Zealand, either.

      • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

        Don't mind Fed Up Betty, he's just frustrated he can't figure out whose head he needs to cut off. LMAO.

        • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

          LOL! He's hopping mad and can't take it any more because he can't track me down.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Stephen_Brady Stephen_Brady

            He might be sorry if he did!

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

            LOL! Yes, there'll be a surprise waiting for him!

          • Fed Up

            Oh, you're so tough & brave! Must be why you;re hiding behind someone else's name, lying coward!

          • Mike

            Shut up.

          • Fed Up

            Wow, what a totally convincing argument for allowing some scumwad to impersonate an innocent man!

          • Fed Up

            More like a surprise for you.

          • Rifleman

            What, that you're a little girl? We already figured that one out.

          • Fed Up

            Oh, my, it's such a surprise that hypocritical liars are also sexist pigs!

        • Fed Up

          No, I can figure it out – he's just in another country.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            Wow, that really narrows it down.

          • Fed Up

            Idiot, I do not have to "track him down" – yeah, I know he's from Australia, & yes, if Gary Rumain needed to press charges, we would probably be able to get his ISP to cough up his name. Luckily, "Intense Debate" has deleted his fake account, so he can't go on impersonating an innocent man.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            I guess you can go back to your goat now, it was getting lonely.

          • Fed Up

            IOW, you, as always, have no substantive reply, so you resort to your race-baiting that you lamely try to pretend is "anti jihadi debate".

    • Mel

      Gary, why do you call her a sharmuta? In Arabic that means a prostitute? I admire her for having the courage to defy Islam's rigid and oppressive restrictions on women. I do fear for her life. Why insult such a beautiful person?

      • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

        I'm pretty sure Gary's taking the islamist view towards women like her to make a 'good' point about them.

        • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

          Yep.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            good was in scare quotes because the point was good but the islamists(them-I notice I wasn't very clear) aren't.

        • Fed Up

          No, "Gary" isn't doing anything' of the sort, since "Gary Rumain" isn't posting here – just some Australian liar who thinks it's funny to use his name.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            Is your name really Fed up? Any comments on what he posted, or are you just B&Ming about his handle (which I couldn't care less about)?

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

            Can you live up to yours and put him out of his misery?

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            What, and end the fun of watching him make a fool of himself? Let him live with his self-inflicted misery.

          • Fed Up

            Gee, he's the lying hypocrite & you think there's something wrong with me?

          • Rifleman

            Yep. Obsession, for starters..

          • Fed Up

            That's funny coming from people who are obsessed with trash-talking about Islamofascists. So what you're saying is that if you found someone impersonating a friend of yours, you'd let it go? So now I have to wonder if you're a hypocrite, a coward, or a combination of both.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            I'd laugh at him. Wonder whatever you wish, that's freedom.
            You mistake me for someone who cares what you think or say.

          • Fed Up

            Oh, no I stopped thinking of you as a decent human being quite awhile back. You expose yourself as a hypocrite of the worst sort, a racist scumwad who uses terrorism as an excuse to spew all sorts of racism & religious bigotry. After all, if you REALLY believed that these jihadis were SO dangerous, and you REALLY believed that you were doing such SERIOUS damage to them by posting all this crap, you would have been the FIRST to decry your little friend's deliberate use of an innocent man's name, making him a target of their wrath. But no, you admit by your vicious indifference that you are nothing but racist losers, pounding out your impotence on the keyboard.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            You think? I hadn't noticed. What racism?

          • Fed Up

            Oh, right. Of course.

            But, I can repeat myself – I'll even type slowly for you.

            If what you aren't doing isn't really thinly veiled anti-Arab & anti-Islam sentiment, because you actually are worried about jihadists, then you would never have countenanced anyone using an actual person's name to hide behind while spouting sentiments specifically engineered to rile jihadists. After all, if they are as dangerous as you say, they'll go after anyone who insults them, right?

            But you are openly supportive of the crime of impersonation, and that can only be because you obviously don't think jihadists are that big of a threat. Therefore, what other reason could you have for your posts than thinly veiled anti-Arab/anti Islam?

            I could accept that you are honestly anti-terrorist if you would live up to the sentiments you say you espouse. But you have done the exact opposite.

            Go ahead, explain how it can be any different. Explain how you can be honestly worried about the incredible viciousness of Islamonazis, AND vehemently condone someone deliberately putting an innocent man in line for any possible actions they might feel like taking for the sentiments expressed.

            Like I said: you expose yourselves.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

            Hmm, yes, he's certainly taken a dive off the deep end. I wonder if it was something I said. ;-)

          • Fed Up

            You wish, lying coward.

          • Mike

            Get a life. Aren't you "Fed Up" of your own bull?

          • Fed Up

            Again, the irony is astounding.

          • Fed Up

            Wow, you really are a coward – more than just hiding behind someone's name.

          • Fed Up

            If you'll note, I have said absolutely nothing about his comments – except that he's making sure that "Gary Rumain" takes the brunt of them. I'm rather disappointed that you don't seem to care that he's lying about who is, & endangering an innocent man.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            I have noted. You can't debate or argue a point, and your moon god is so weak, a pathetic human must defend him against words with violence.

            Endangering? I'm supposed to blame Gary if yall are stupid and violent enough to murder an innocent man? Get real.

          • Fed Up

            You are just so amazingly stupid.
            a) It takes a true moron to take the word of a lying jackass at to who/what I am
            b) if you're SO certain that Islamonazis are going to murder "Gary Rumain" why aren't YOU ALSO upset that this shithead is using an innocent man's name to get them upset?
            c) AGAIN, I'm not here to discuss any of your keyboard Rambo-ing: I am only here to get this asshole to stop impersonating an innocent man. Luckily, "Intense Debate" has deleted his fake account, so he can't go on letting someone else get blamed for impotent screaming.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            If it was impotent you wouldn't be here whining, and you make it obvious who and what you are.

          • Fed Up

            Obviously a superior human being to you – someone who cares about his friends, and the truth.

            But, you, you moronic hypocrite, if YOU think it's NOT impotent, they why are you so blase about an innocent man being blamed for it all?

            Tell me, do you have to work at being this stupid, or does it come naturally?

          • Rifleman

            Your week long hissy fit is proof of his potency. If you're so smart, how did I keep you chasing your tail for a week?

            What's your buddy innocent of, btw?

          • Fed Up

            The only hissy fit is yours, in response to facts you dislike. If you're so smart, why is it you couldn't even figure out what I was saying at first, and why have you been coming back for more? How is my bitch-slapping you "chasing my tail"?

            And as for my buddy, Gary Rumain has no business taking whatever your girlfriend has dished out in his name. If you really think there's nothing wrong with it, then yo';re even sicker than you have presented yourself to be.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            I haven't SCREAMED, and used profanity (I've been laughing at your DA the whole time), you have. I didn't claim I was smart, you did. I've been commenting at this site almost every day for about a decade now. You're obviously the noob here, and the one that keeps coming back for more and making a fool of yourself.

            I figured out what you were saying day 1 and told you I didn't care. You said you were just here to get Gary to change his screen name, and he did several days ago, yet here you are. I'm the sick one, lol?

          • Fed Up

            LOL! You're still having a hissy fit! The CAPS were an obviously futile attempt to get the facts thru the thick skulls around here. The profanity – about which you've been hypocritically acting like a maiden aunt – was no less than you deserved. But the person whose account I am using has told me to cut it out – so there we are.

            Your "posting tenure" is a strawman,and, like all strawmen, weak at best. You've been returning to my comments no less than I have been returning to this thread, but you are also the one avoiding every single point being raised; you are the one who thinks "You Think?", "Yo Mama" &, my personal favorite, "Shut up" are any kind of substitute for refutation. In the adult world, coming back for more but bringing nothing spells "bitch slapped"

            Go ahead, laugh at my "DA" – you must feel so cool to make a reference to something that you're sure I don't know – you obviously need to bolster yourself some way. Good job!

            But the fact remains that you have been dodging the point:

            Explain how you can be honestly worried about the incredible viciousness of Islamonazis, AND vehemently condone someone deliberately putting an innocent man in line for any possible actions they might feel like taking for the sentiments expressed.

            Given that you are openly supportive of the crime of impersonation, and since that can only be because you obviously don't think jihadists are that big of a threat, therefore, the only other reason could you have for your posts is thinly veiled anti-Arab/anti Islam.

            Like I said: you expose yourselves.

            And, now that I have absolutely everything that I came here for – & no, not just the last irrefutable post, but all your sweetie's posts having to be renamed – thanks for all the fishes.

          • Fed Up

            Do you really think it's okay to USE SOMEONE ELSE'S NAME?

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Stephen_Brady Stephen_Brady

            Like the numerous "John Wayne"s and "Winston Churchill"s I've encountered on the net?

            I believe that your whole purpose is to bring the discussion off-topic, by a crazy obsession with someone else's screen name. Get a life, Mr. Up …

          • Fed Up

            Because, of course, "John Wayne" & "Winston Churchill" are alive & ready to get shot/bombed/stabbed by Islamonazis, right?
            "Gary Rumain" is a REAL PERSON – or have you not yet grasped that repeated fact?

            I can't believe how stupid all you people are.

            You insist that Islamonazis are dangerous, & yet, at the first sign that someone innocent could actually be endangered by someone, you stick your heads in the sand – or, rather, further up your asses – and bitch at the messenger!

            Hypocrisy at its best – you should all be proud.

      • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

        Have you seen the other photos of her? I've put some up on my blog. She won some stripper contest. So why aren't arselifters calling for her head? Is it hypocrisy?

        • Fed Up

          You ought to know about hypocrisy, pretending to be so bravely anti-jihadi, all the while hiding behind an innocent man's name.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Stephen_Brady Stephen_Brady

            And everyone on the internet uses their real name, and their address, too! When your mama named you "Fed", your papa must have been on the same page enthusiastically. How's everyone in the Up family?

          • Fed Up

            Moron, he's USING ANOTHER PERSON'S NAME.
            I KNOW Gary Rumain – it's not this lying cowtrd.

          • Syd Barrett

            Yeah Gary, you're totally wrong for using someone else's name.

          • Fed Up

            And that's the point I was making. I don't care what he wants to call himself, as long as he doesn't deliberately use the name of someone else. And it's particularly obnoxious in light of the brave tone he keeps taking in those comments.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

            Oh, dear! Shame on me for have the same name as a few other guys around the planet. Now I've got some troll mad at me because he can't find me. I hope my namesakes aren't being harassed by this kook too.

          • Fed Up

            You are a liar, & you know it. There are no "Gary Rumains" in Australia. Or New Zealand. "A few other guys on the planet" – now you're just burying yourself. Show where there's any but in the US. Go ahead. And the whole "I can't find you" thing? Even more laughable – at no point did I ever say I was even looking for you. I don't have to look for you – Automattic, Inc will do it for me. Or, rather, Gary Rumain. You wouldn't cut it out, l so I've told him. He's taking care of it – & you – you TROLL.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Stephen_Brady Stephen_Brady

            We don't care. Haven't you figured that out, yet? Also, your obsession with him clearly indicates that you are the troll …

          • Fed Up

            Yes, I have figured out that you are all hypocritical assholes. Here you are, sticking up for this shithead because he agrees with you, but, when I set out to protect my friend, who I actually know (as opposed to someone who I just drooling over a keyboard with), you all whine & bitch about it. What a pack of dickheads.

          • Rifleman

            Do you kiss your momma with that mouth?

          • Fed Up

            Truth hurts you, I see; inability to refute me noted.

          • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

            Yea I'm just devastated. Refute what, a string of profanities?

          • Fed Up

            Oh, there's that hypocrisy again. Nice excuse to avoid facts you dislike.

            But nothing will make them go away. Your sweetie has committed the crime of impersonation because he's a sick little jerk, & you all are standing up for him simply because he's a sad little keyboard Rambo, just like the rest of you.

          • Rifleman

            How do you know he didn't make the name up and by coincidence someone was actually named that? I've seen proof of nothing but he didn't want to change his screen name and that you're unhinged. Toying with you mildly amuses me, you're so emotional.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/suprkufrB suprkufrB

    This woman is very beautiful, perhaps brave, but also extremely stupid. It's obvious that she simply hasn't understood what she has done in the eyes of the religion of peace. I pray that our Heavenly Father will protect her.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

      I suspect there's more going on than we know about. Why did her family allow her to attend a stripping contest? Or pose in a bikini? Usually, that sort of immodesty besmirches their family honor. Then its faulty balcony time (very popular in Europe) or accidentally run over by a car.

      • rbla

        Just as Muslims willingly give up their lives to "advance" Islam so it may be that this woman and her family are prepared to sacrifice their "honor". They do so with the view of making Islam more acceptable; to getting Americans accustomed to having even more Muslims in the country. Whatever it takes to advance Islam whether that means imposing mosques on mourners at the site of the WTC or beating infidels in beauty contests. That may be the reason that the Muslim reaction to her revealing her body has been so uncharacteristically muted.

        • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

          Yes, good point. Deception and takiya are their stock in trade.

      • Fed Up

        Why does your family allow you to use the name of an innocent man for your rants? If you were as brave as you pretend, you'd use your own name.

    Gary Rumain 104p

    Last time I looked in the mirror a pinky brown complexion stared back. As far as I'm aware both pink and brown are colours.

    Does that make me also a 'person of color'?

    If so can anyone tell me why my guitar playing isn't as good as Buddy Guy's?

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

      Maybe you're the wrong color. You'd have to ask Zennie62. He's presenting himself as an expert.

      • Fed Up

        And you're presenting yourself as "Gary Rumain" when you are not – guess that makes you even worse than "Zennie62".

        • Fed Up

          And I'll go on saying it until he stops using AN INNOCENT MAN'S NAME. Nice of him to be so brave when HE'LL never be the one getting bombed by some other asshole.

      • Mike

        Shut up Fed.

        • Fed Up

          Oh, sure. This guy uses another person's name & you're mad at me for pointi8ng it out. Says a lot about all of you.

  • chets1girl

    I could care less who won this contest. And, I have no problem with her choice of religion. However, I do think we need to remember that, in a strictly Muslim country, this woman would be dead. Her liberated behavior would not be tolerated and her beauty would not be appreciated. She' would be just another piece of property to the men surrounding her. I hope she thanks Allah for the fact that she was born an American!

    • guest12

      actually she was born a Lebanese and Lebanon has its own beauty pageant where both Christians or Muslims are welcome to apply and it is a huge event televised across the Middle East and no contestant has ever been killed – to the contrary, they are treated with the utmost respect. I think you need to buy yourself a book and get an education.

  • Steve Chavez

    Beware of her father, brother, uncle, or cousin who will commit an HONOR KILLING! Yes, in a Muslim country she would be stoned, hanged, or her head cut off!

    But I must say, "Damn, is that what they're hiding under there?"

  • DOn

    As a person of color myself (white), as well as a native American (I was born in Ohio) I have to say that I celebrate with my fellow sister of color in her victory at the meaningless Miss USA Pageant. As others have stated, I hope they don't cut her beautiful head off for causing Muslim men to sin because she showed too much skin.

  • JohnC

    "She would be brutally murdered under strict Shariah law."

    I get the terrible feeling SHE WILL BE BRUTALLY MURDERED by some crazed muslim. If the past is prologue, Ms. Fakih is a dead person walking.

  • lee tabin

    I understand she is Christian, not Muslim, but of Christian descent from Lebanon.

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

      Nope, her relatives are senior hezbollah dudes (you know those clowns who lobbed rockets into Israel from Lebanon).

      • http://fpb.livejournal.com Fabio P.Barbieri

        If that is the case, there is a well-known parallel. The notorious Abu Hamza or "Hook", a Jihadist preacher who really and truly wears a hopk like a storybook pirate (he blew up his hand in Afghanistan, is the story) has a daughter who is a stripper and pole dancer down the road from where I live in London. Of course, I haven't heard from her of late….

          Yes, I've seen photos of him. Very ugly. I'm also reminded of one of Osama Bin Laden's daughters or nieces (can't remember which) posing for Playboy.

  • BS1977

    She IS beautfiul…Christian, Muslim, who cares. I fear for her safety though….appearing in public in a bathing suit is sure to create hysteria among those who like to stone young women for immodesty and contrary behavior….ie, who wish to have the liberties and freedoms of Americans and Europeans. I hope she has a good life.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/Rifleman Rifleman

    Though she's a little on the thin side for my taste, thanks for the photo. Oink. (Us men can't get mad cow disease… 'cause we're pigs)

    Very pleasant on the eyes first thing in the morning. I congradulate her and wish her well

  • Gamaliel Isaac

    It would be nice if Rima Fakih would show some inner beauty and stand up for women victimized by Islam like the ones shown here. http://www.mypracticalphilosophy.com/jihadpages/w

  • Timmy

    Every religion has failed followers. If some stripper was going around claiming to be a practicing Christian people would recognize the probability that she might not be following the religion all that well, Carrie Praejean was roundly condemned for "claiming" to be a Christian but failing to live up to liberal standards, but with someone claiming to be Muslim, in the West they can basically do whatever they want, and as long as they aren't advocating cutting off infidel heads or blowing things up they are considered to be Muslims in good standing, never mind that they are for all intents and purposes ignoring the tenets of the religion of Islam altogether.

    And she isn't really that pretty, obviously political correctness played a huge role in her winning, she got double points for being a Muslim.

  • WilliamBrown

    Meaning? She a jihottie for sure!

  • http://www.resonoelusono.com/NaturalBornCitizen.htm Alexander Gofen

    Disregarding that the media calls Rima Fakih a Moslem, and disregarding that Rima Fakih calls herself a Moslem, it is ludicrous and misguiding to consider her a Moslem in any meaningful sense. In any existing real world Moslem community (including the Western) she would be considered nothing but a whore – subject to "honor killing".

    A massive campaign presenting her as though an authentic Moslem is aimed at promoting a lie, a dream about a non-existent and impossible "moderate" or "reformed" Islam.

    The Western societies must rid of Islam instead of appeasing and playing games with it.

    It's a win-win/lose-lose situation.

    Yeah, they don't like seeing their women parading around undressed. So is throwing beauty pageant prizes at them a way of embarrassing the bastards or kissing their butts?

    The problem is that it is forced on our attention.

    Is there any aspect of life that hasn't been contaminated by the mohammedans and their psychotic standards for living?

    How often do you hear about any other culture's taboos?

  • clyde

    President Leroy will probably declare a national 'Rima' holiday to replace the Christians national day of Prayer.

  • Lisa Richards

    I thought Islamic law, the Koran, Sunnah, Hadith, Sharia Law, all didctate a Muslim woman cannot be seen by men in public, only her husband can see her unclothed, only her family can see her face indoors, etc.

    This Muslim woman dons a skimmpy bikini and is called a liberated Muslim? There is no such thing for Muslim women. They are not allowed to parade in public practically naked. If Miss Muslim USA did this in the Middle East, she would be executed. In America honor killings have taken place by Muslim families who said their daughters humiliated them and had to be put to death–Texas is one example.

    This is Affirmative Action. Speaking out against this woman has nothing to do with her skin color, rather the hipocracy of her wearing a bikini in front of millions when her relgion forbids such actions. Muslim women are not allowed on public beaches overseas in the ME, so who is this woman and the pagent kidding? No one except idiots who actaully believe Muslim and leftist lies to the west that Islam is peaceful.

    • http://fpb.livejournal.com Fabio P.Barbieri

      You would be surprised. But they have to be in places where they are safe from Muslim eyes. Once upon a time, if you travelled to London on an Asian or Arab airplane, you would witness a remarkable scene. As soon as the pilot informed the passengers that final descent had begun, every single Muslim woman on board would take off anything by way of a veil and at least one or two layers of clothing, to reveal expensively coiffured hair, carefully made up faces, skintight western dresses (for the younger ones) and a considerable amount of skin, expecially if it was summer. Of late I haven't seen this kind of thing happen nearly so much – possibly because Britain's own large Muslim minority has been getting so much free publicity that the visiting ladies no longer feel that they are on safe or friendly ground.

  • kafir4life

    Compare and contrast to the should-be burka wearing beast that David had to deal with.
    Twil be interesting what comes out of ibby dibby hooper's fat butt congratulating this un- covered muslima. Twill also be interesting if they pull her crown for stripping too! Wonder what the dougster will say about that!

  • Joel B

    The U.S. has proven nothing by crowning this self-proclaimed Muslim woman as Miss USA. On the other hand, Muslim women will really have achieved something when a bikini-clad Muslima wins a beauty contest in Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Araba, etc. etc.

    I for one won't hold my breath……

    • http://fpb.livejournal.com Fabio P.Barbieri

      There has been a Miss Afghanistan. She was American, the daughter of refugees.

      Going further back, there used to be a Miss Egypt in the fifties. The most famous was the woman who became the singer Dalida, who was 100% Italian, and to judge from what I heard it would seem that all the other candidates were of Italian or other non-Muslim descent. Most of the once large Italian community in Alexandria have since left (Dalida died in Paris), and I doubt whether any competition now takes place.

  • http://PatrickofAtlantis.com PatrickofAtlantis

    Mark Steyn is right when he says Saudi Arabia's biggest export to the USA is Islam. This Miss USA is just to make it palatable to us infidels. That bribes were exchanged for the outcome of this contest is a logical assumption.

  • Mike

    Is Rimah Fakih a Muslim? Or being of Arab background,she is perceived to be Muslim?
    If she is a Muslim , this is going to cause a headache for her fellow Muslims.They will be torn
    between being proud of her and issuing a fatwa. This is an embarrassment for the Islamists.
    Check out the editorial cartoon in the National Post (May 19/2010)

    • Rifleman

      Relax, they'll be proud of her AND issue a fatwa.

      • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

    Will someone please explain to me what color this woman is,if it's something other then white? If you took a cross section of Middle Easterners,you would see that the majority of them look no different from Italians,Slavs,Turks,Spanish or even French people..WHERE is the racial component of the "Racism"

    WHAT A DISGRACE,

    #1 A STRIPPER
    #2 A MUSLIM
    THIS JUST GOES TO SHOW HOW FAR THIS COUNTRY HAVE GONE DOWN THE GUTTER.

    CARRIE P. WAS STRIPPED OF HER TITLE FOR LESS.
    THE BEAUTY PAGEANTS ARE NO LONGER A FAMILY PROGRAM AND NO LONGER WHAT A LITTLE GIRL CAN DREAM ABOUT. THEY HAVE BECOME THE THRASHER THE MORE POLITICAL THEY ARE THE THRASHER.

    SHE KIND OF REMINDS ME OF ANNA NICOLE SMITH. I THINK THIS GIRL WAS DETERMINED TO GET TO WHERE SHE WANTED TO GO EVEN IF IT SOLD HER BODY.
    BY THE WAY WHAT DO THE MUSLIM IMAMS THINK ABOUT THIS AROUND THE WORLD?

    OH I GET IT SHE IS A WALK IN. I WONDER HOW MUCH MORE DAMAGE SHE CAN DO AND WHAT KIND.

    I THOUGHT MUSLIM WOMEN OR GIRLS THAT ACTED HALF AS TRASHY AS THE NOW MISS U.S.A. BROUGHT DISGRACE TO THEIR FAMILY TO THE TUNE OF IT COSTING THEM THEIR LIFE????????

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

      Yes, Rose, she's a disgrace to arselifters everywhere.

  • moriyah

    There is no fatwa out against this woman which is extraordinary considering they are compelled religiously to destroy the one who brings the family shame. Why has nothing even been said? Because she is, is my opinion a kind of sleeper. They better check her real good if she gets an invite to the White House. They may have perfected a tampax bomb. No… I am not kidding…

    • http://intensedebate.com/people/GaryRumain Gary Rumain

      Well, they've already invented arse bombs and were working on boob bombs, so a tampax bomb won't be a far stretch for them.

  • Mike

    We need more like her,just to defy the militants.This is no victory for Islam.It's a victory for
    secularism.

    • Timmy

      It is a failure for secularism because it lulls the average moron in the West into thinking that Islam can assimilate with the West. If all so-called Muslims acted like her then it wouldn't be Islam anymore would it? The doctrines of Islam can't be changed, millions of people generation after generation fight to keep Islam as it is, that a few very rare outliers in the West manage to act normal does not change anything and the more of them that are allowed into the West the greater number of Muslims who actually follow the religion will also be here, and they will destroy the West. First freedom of speech, then freedom of religion, then democracy itself.

    What is all this color crap. as a conservative I want to see all people go as far as their talents will take them. This girl is a heart stopping beauty. There are 13 y/o boys all over the country choking themselves over amorous dreams of her. Racism is a refuge of the haters like the nut muslims, la raza and and democrats.

  • Donna

    Just for accuracy's sake – This lovely young woman was NOT crowned Miss America, as the author states several times. She was crowned Miss USA – a completely different title which focuses ONLY on the face and body of contestants. Miss USA/Universe is owned and operated by businessman Donald Trump as a for-profit, commercial enterprise, which has been financially successful and has become quite popular.____Miss America is a not-for-profit organization which focuses not only on beauty, but on intelligence, talent, fitness and the ability to articulate ones thoughts and ideas. Miss America is also the largest provider of scholarships to women IN THE WORLD. Many doctors, lawyers, CEOs, television and radio personalities, actresses, UN ambassadors and other brilliant and accomplished women share their involvement in the Miss America program. __

  • Donna

    Thousands of brilliant young women compete at local, state and national levels each year – and while Donald Trump may not hype the competition (OR make money from it) Miss America is a longtime tradition which empowers young women to continue their educations while building their poise and confidence.

    PLEASE don't confuse the two. As lovely as she is, the new Miss USA probably wouldn't even be competitive in the Miss America Pageant.

  • badaboo

    "much adoo about nothing "….this is one the author and Pipies , should simply leave alone .

    IT' S JUST A BLOODY BEAUTY CONTEST FOR PETE'S SAKE !

  • http://www.cervirite.com Jake

    In a Muslim country, Rima should be dead. But she is in America so I guess that explains why she joined the pageant in the first place. Anyway, why did the issue of her being a Muslim only arouse when she won? If anyone who are involved in the pageant has a problem of her being a Muslim, the issue should have brought up earlier during or even before the pageant has started.

  • nojizyya

    What would be more ironic than Ms USA being slaughtered by the "Religion of Peace"? If that wouldn't wake the American people up nothing will. There is nothing "American" about "Islam". She is obviously a Muslim in name only and clueless about the religion's more violent tenants. After thousands of incidents, a clueless (deliberately blind) press, and open jihad we are still sleeping. She doesn't represent America to me. No longer I stopped watching the show long ago.
