Muslim-born Miss USA is against Ground Zero mosque
Sify ^ | 2010-08-21 13:30:00

Reigning Miss USA Rima Fakih has spoken out against the Ground Zero mosque.

Fakih, 24, is the first Muslim winner of the Miss USA contest and is preparing for the Miss Universe Pageant, scheduled for August 23 in Las Vegas.

"I totally agree with President Obama with the statement on Constitutional rights of freedom of religion," the New York Post quoted Fakih as telling Inside Edition during an interview.

"I also agree that it shouldn't be so close to the World Trade Center. We should be more concerned with the tragedy than religion," she added.

Isn’t Miss USA owned by Trump.

That might explain her viewpoint.

She is pretty.

I would not be surprised to see her lose her crown over this given the wickedness of the society in which we live.

“Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can’t locate the U.S. on a world map. Why do you think this is?”
Upton responded:
“I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some people out there in our nation don’t have maps and, uh, I believe that our, uh, education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future, for our children”.

That is my fear. It seems that when someone who is decent and in the public eye takes a righteous stand on an issue, the left does its best to destroy them.

Let me guess...This Muslim is going to be our new heroine, right?

What I’d like to know is who’s creating, coaching, planting and nominating these double agents in our midst.

If that is her dancing, she is hot!

Also, if it is, don't expect the Muslims to look kindly on her when she represents the USA in the Miss Universe pageant. If she "dishonors" her faith by showing skin (especially that much skin) before a worldwide audience, who knows what the Shariahs have in store for her.

Well, for one she couldn’t be in a contest like this in a Muslim world.

I think I’ve seen more articles of Muslim women speaking out against the Mosque placement than Muslim males.

Not the brightest bulb. Thinks she knows she is now on a Sharia hit list? Think she knows what she said? Heck, I don’t know what she said!

Ironically it is always the no-morals left who hoists a double standard on those of the right who may have sinned, which is pretty much all of us. The left holds us to a higher standard, while they themselves wallow in their own decadent petard and are proud of it. The difference is that the left have abandoned any sense of decency, while the right cherishes it, so with no sense of decency the left is free to launch it's wild attacks on anyone and everyone who disagrees with their antics.

Just my 2 cents on the passing scene

She’s right, and I’ll bet the media were expecting a different kind of answer and are going to completely ignore what she said.

I wonder if she would be considered a good Muslim in Iran or Saudi Arabia? Islam has one thing in common with Christianity. There are lots of people claiming to be members of a certain faith, but living completely contrary to that faith. I imagine that the vast majority of Muslims cringe at her behavior, just at the Roman Catholics must cringe at Madonna, the material girl.

I believe Justice McGinsberg said so.
