From 51 to 1: 2010 Miss USA Crowned in Las Vegas

May 16, 2010

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A 24-year-old brunette from Michigan has beaten out four blondes and 46 other women for the 2010 Miss USA title after nearly stumbling in her evening gown.

Rima Fakih of Dearborn, Mich., won the pageant Sunday night after swimsuit, evening gown and interview competitions at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. During the competition, Fakih nearly fell while finishing her walk in a long, strapless gown because of the length of its train, but she recovered without a spill and went on to win.

In the interview, Fakih was asked whether she thought birth control should be paid for by health insurance, and she said she believed it should. Miss Oklahoma USA Morgan Elizabeth Woolard was first runner-up after handling a question about Arizona's new immigration law. She said she supports it.

because birth control is a disease to these people. I knew the girl who expressed support for Arizona had no shot.

Rima Fakih of Dearborn, Mich., won the pageant Sunday night after swimsuit...

So...I hear she's a Muslim.

This raises a question;

Will there be a fatwah issued, calling for her execution for baring her body before the world?

This girl will be killed by her own Muslim people, if she competed in the swimsuit part ... and was not wearing her burka in the contest ...

This is the only way she can legitimately compete in that contest ... LOL ...

That explains it. Lebanese-Catholics (Maronites) are very westernized and hate the Muslims.

She isn’t Muslim. She is Lebanese-American. She went to Catholic schools and her parents were Greek Catholic in Lebanon.

Faroq (not even going to try to spell that) sponsors these pagents because he owns one of the largest hair care companies. A quick Google search showed he also sponsored Carrie Prejean.

Debbie missed the mark (she has been wrong on a lot of stuff lately), she is Catholic and her family were Greek Catholic refugees from the Lebanese war. (if the bios are true).

I submit she may just say she is Catholic to avoid being murdered.

If her parents are indeed Lebanese Christians, that is a tough life. I read Brigitte Gabriel’s book “Why They Hate”, and the war waged against them by the Lebanese muslims was horrific.

Yikes, from your link: Miss USA Contestant is Shi’ite Muslim Hezbollah Supporter, Used Pageant Name to Promote Muslim Female Subjugation

"Rima Fakih, Miss Michigan USA, who will compete in Sunday Night’s pageant broadcast on NBC, is a Dearbornistan Shi’ite Muslim who is a supporter of Hezbollah and used the pageant name at a forum promoting Islamic subjugation of women.

"She was born in the Hezbollah stronghold of Srifa in South Lebanon, which Israel was forced to attack in the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war because it was a site of Hezbollah weaponry. Her devout Muslim family comes from the Hezbollah-controlled South Lebanon.

"Intelligence sources confirm that at least three of Fakih’s relatives are currently top officials in Hezbollah and that at least eight Fakih family members were Hezbollah terrorists killed by the Israelis in past Israel-Lebanese wars and interventions.

"Some of her family members were originally in Harakat Amal [the Shi'ite Amal militia], which is now essentially a part of Hezbollah. There’s a reason that even Al-Manar TV–Hezbollah’s official TV network–is high on Fakih in the Miss USA pageant."
