PAGEANT PROOF OF NEW ISLAMIC ERA IN AMERICA
A Shiite Muslim with ties to Hezbollah became Miss USA last night at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
Rima Fakih of Dearborn, Michigan beat out 50 other women to capture the crown, despite nearly stumbling over her evening gown and falling into the audience.
The Miss USA pageant started in 1952 as a local bathing suit competition in Long Beach, California.
The pageant is now owned by Donald Trump.
Miss Fakih was born in the Hezbollah stronghold of Srifa in southern Lebanon.
She and her family migrated to Michigan in 2003.
In addition to being the first Muslim woman to wear the crown, Miss Fakih is also the first immigrant to serve as Miss USA. No mention of this fact was made by Mr. Trump or the other pageant officials.
According to noted journalist Debbie Schlussel, Miss Fakih’s relatives in Lebanon remain top Hezbollah officials. Hezbollah was the first Islamic group to adopt tactical suicide bombings, assassinations, and kidnappings as standard techniques in waging asymmetrical warfare.
In 1995, Hezbollah united with al Qaeda at a terrorist conference in Tehran, Iran.
That same year, Imad Mugniyah, the leader of Hezbollah, became instrumental in establishing al Qaeda cells in South America.
Twenty years ago, Hezbollah hijacked TWA Flight 847 and trampled Navy diver Robert Stethem to death for being an American.
The new Miss USA made no mention of Islam or Hezbollah in accepting the crown.
