LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A 24-year-old Arab American from Michigan beat out 50 other women to take the 2010 Miss USA title Sunday night, despite nearly stumbling in her evening gown.
Rima Fakih of Dearborn, Mich., won the pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip after strutting confidently in an orange and gold bikini, wearing a strapless white gown that resembled a wedding dress and saying health insurance should cover birth control pills.

PC Bag Job. Been FIXED this way for more than 15 years.
A socio-politically motivated decision?
No, not in America!
Yep. You need to be black or deaf or a koranimal, etc.
As far as looks go, she certainly isn't bad looking.
And it's not like she had a choice what family she was born to... so if you must condemn her, condemn he on something she DOES have control over.
you mean like our president? the peace prize winner? The supreme court nominees?
nah, not like that at all.
Does she characterize herself as Arab first and American second, or is that LSM spin?
I have a friend of Lebanese heritage. He is 100% pure American. Christian. Pro-Second Amendment. Pro-profiling for terrorists (even knowing it might be a hassle for him). In short, to the right of me and Rush. Brilliant to boot.
But the racist LSM would just see him as an “Arab American” victim. Until he kicked their rears for doing so...
Her relatives are top officials in Hezbollah. She is a supporter of Hezbollah.
OK, based on the thread above this one, she is a “the Hezbollah-supporting Shiite Muslim representing Michigan in Sundays Miss USA pageant.”
She might be pretty on the outside, but that’s ugly to the bone.
Just more PC travesty. NOTHING like my friend.
There is a source in this thread below.

>Her relatives are top officials in Hezbollah.
Like I said, she CAN’T control who her relatives are.
>She is a supporter of Hezbollah.
That she CAN control; another is the statement about birth-control pills.
Next stop for this babe, visit to the Whitey House with Hussein Obama and the Misses. Of course, nothing PC about this pick.
Fakih's family is itself a blend of cultures and religions, including both Christians and Muslims. Though Muslim, Fakih's parents celebrate Christmas and have a painting of Jesus in their home.
If you are born into a Muslim family, you are a Muslim ... that's the way it works.
I will censor my comments.
My great-grandmother would be spinning in her grave if I said that my (1/8) Lebanese heritage was “Arab.” We were taught to say “Near Eastern.”
But she was just a dumb, Americanized, Greek Orthodox Christian...
thanx .If true this is totally disgusting. No wonder how many stupid Jews were involved in the production of this pageant and how many of them also cheered her.We’re lost to be sure.
How about asking her if she supports Hezbollah and Hamas and the destruction of Isreal and the murder of all Jews? How about asking her if she thinks that Jews are filthy pigs?
She seems to be a “Muslim” who graduated from a Catholic High School, according to her web site.

It's not uncommon for kids to go to another school even though they are Muslim. I remember hearing Walid Shoebat talk about the same thing, when he went to a non-Muslim school when growing up in Israel in the Palestinian areas.
Those schools would also be prohibited from saying anything negative about Islam and/or Mohammed. And also, Jesus is revered, too, in Islam, but not as the Son of God, just another respected prophet and teacher... with Mohammed being the final, real prophet.
And one thing you can't "get out of" -- is if you're born into a Muslim family, which it's clear that she was, you are definitely a Muslim and you are prohibited from ever leaving the Muslim faith ... or you can be killed by other Muslims.
My kind of Muslim.
It would be the same thing as having a Chavez backing Communist women win Ms. Venezuela and go on and win Ms. Universe. Beautiful on the outside, evil on the inside.
The same goes for the hot women in the Spetsnaz and Russian GRU.
Oh, wait, that did happen a couple years ago.
Muslim: It’s the new Gay.
I suspect her family are Alawites like the Assad family that runs Syria: a type of Shi’ite with some Christian customs and Christian feasts, and often taking Christian names (Bashir is the Arabic equivalent of Basil or Vassily). The sect were probably cryto-Christians years back, but now are just a very odd sect of Shia Islam.
They'll pick the first open lesbian, next year for 2011.
... but now are just a very odd sect of Shia Islam.
Odd or not ... relatives who are Hezbollah officials ... well... I don't have to know too much more...
Actually, the Alawites’ oddity matters: the Assads only keep control of Syria by being good to all the minorities, Christians included. It also made them more pliable to U.S. interests vis-a-vis Al Qaeda, which sees them as even more heretical than ordinary Shi’ites, and would dearly like to see the Assads overthrown.
Of course, the enemy of my enemy is not my fiend, nor even a reliable ally when they are also the enemy of your ally (Israel), but the U.S. needs to be aware of such things since we *are* a great power and have to pay attention to the niceties of distinctions between implacable enemies and enemies we can twist to do our will when necessary.
Did she promote gay marriage or free baby killings paid by uncle Sam?
“Rima Fakih, Miss Michigan USA, who will compete in Sunday Nights pageant broadcast on NBC, is a Dearbornistan Shiite 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 Fakihs 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. Theres a reason that even Al-Manar TVHezbollahs official TV networkis high on Fakih in the Miss USA pageant.”
That might be okay for International politics to keep up on all that ... but having a Jew-hating Muslim sponsor for the Miss USA Pagaent and then getting a Hezbollah-Muslim monkey for a winner — is “another story” ...
That thread also has no credible evidence backing its wild accusations.
People who watch TV and pay for cable or sat TV are just supporting Obama because ALL teh networks do and they control the rest of the channels. Fox/Saudia is no better. Keep watching TV to support Islamification. The public is so stupid.
Pretty good looking pic there. But I’ll need more pics of her, especially in bikini before I can form my complete opinion there.
I didn’t see the show but I am sure she will dedicate this year to stopping honor killing for immodesty among muslim girls....
tell me I’m right.....
So she won the burka competition I take it.
>How about asking her if she supports Hezbollah and Hamas and the destruction of Isreal and the murder of all Jews? How about asking her if she thinks that Jews are filthy pigs?
Those are things she does have sovereignty over (her thoughts & opinions); and therefore something she is culpable for (on a moral level).
With this Arab American winning the 2010 Miss America, I wonder if this will keep the rag heads from attacking us??? HELL NO. This woman should have been wearing the veil and not showing any skin. I wonder if she would have won then?? Politically Correct??? Of course not, not in America. Fixed, hell yes. Just like when a Black woman wins this type of contest. Are white women allowing in Miss Black America?? Hell no, but a black woman needs to be allowed in this??? Racist?? Not me, just tired of the double standards the white people in this country are put through. Make it an even playing field.
Until I read that link, I had a completely opposite view. I figured this was a thumb in the eye to the radical Muslim world. But if that post is correct, she’s simply a propaganda tool.
I hope when she’s interviewed, the press pushes her to talk about her views on women’s rights, veils, burkas, the whole bit.
