Middle East: Champions of Hypocrisy, Pornography & Cruelty

Photo Bomb? Miss Universe Controversy in The Middle East

MissIsraelUniverseThe trouble started last week, when this year’s Miss Israel Doron Matalon posted a photo on Instagram featuring herself alongside Saly Griege, this year’s Miss Lebanon, and her fellow contestants from Japan and Slovenia.

The picture caused an uproar in Lebanon, which has a law forbidding its citizens from fraternizing with Israelis. In 1993, the government disqualified its Miss Universe representative after Agence France-Presse moved a photo of her smiling arm-in-arm with her Israeli competitor.

For her part, Griege claimed that she had been the victim of a sinister photobomb, writing on Facebook and Instagram, “I was very cautious to avoid being in any photo or communication with Miss Israel (that tried several times to have a photo with me) … I was having a photo with Miss Japan, Miss Slovenia and myself; suddenly Miss Israel jumped in, took a selfie, and put it on her social media.”

Upon hearing the uproar back home, Miss Lebanon Saly Griege threw Miss Israel Doron Matalon under the bus and accused her of photobombing the picture that was being taken of herself with Miss Japan and Miss Slovenia. The rather adult response from Miss Israel was “Too bad you can not put the hostility out of the game, only for three weeks of an experience of a lifetime that we can meet girls from around the world and also from the neighboring [sic] country.”

It’s shocking to to observe how quickly Miss Lebanon threw her new buddy, Miss Israel, under the bus. How silly! Two young, beautiful women were getting along just fine and learning about each other, and hatred and ideology destroyed all. The story is sad.

‘Arab Idol’ Viewers Demand Removal of Israel


My note: Let’s consider the following and think about it:

IsraelArea: 22,145 km2

(The area of the State of Israel fits 545 times into the Arab World’s area, that is roughly 0.18% of the lands)

Arab WorldArea: 12,061,226 km2

(Strictly, they are 17 Arab countries, while the Arab League includes other 4 states, which are not Arab, and the disputed territories, totalizing 22)

The most popular show in the Arab world ignited an uproar throughout the region when it displayed a map depicting the home country of two of its contestants as Israel.

The singers on the “Arab Idol” show were Arab citizens of Israel who live in Galilee, but the Saudi MBC-TV network was forced to apologize to hundreds millions of viewers for acknowledging the existence of the Jewish state and not identifying the contestants’ homeland as “Palestine.”

MBC had been threatened with boycotts and Internet campaigns, including”Shut Down Arab Idol,” “Palestine is Arab, not Hebrew” and “Together Against Arab Idol.”

The protesters, commented the international public policy group Gatestone Institute,were not demanding a two-state solution and an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank and Gaza Strip.”

“They were protesting against Israel’s existence; that is what really bothers them.”

“Their success in forcing MBC to remove Israel from the map is a symbolic victory for those who seek Israel’s destruction. But it is also a reminder that this conflict is not about a settlement or a checkpoint or a fence — but about Israel’s very existence,” said the organization, which seeks to educate the public about issues the “mainstream media” fails to report accurately.

The Arab Israelis, Manal Moussa, 25, and Haitham Khalailah, 24, were among contestants from all over the Arab world when the show launched its new season in mid-September.

Within minutes of displaying a map identifying the contestants’ home countries, the network was flooded with demands to remove Israel and apologize to all Arabs for the “serious offense.”

The institute said there were “extreme activists” who immediately threatened the station and its owners.

MBC claimed Israel appeared on the map as a result of a “technical error” and replaced it with one that identifies the area as Palestine.

The singers are now are described on the show as Palestinians, and there is no mention they are citizens of Israel.

“The uproar that erupted throughout the Arab world over the use of a map with Israel’s name on it is yet another reminder that many Arabs still have not come to terms with Israel’s existence – and apparently are not interested in coming to terms with it,” the institute commented.


Pakistan Tops List of Most Porn-Searching Countries: Google

PorSAs oppressive and strict as Muslim countries are, they cannot seem to reign in their sexually perverse civilians. Lashing, imprisonment, and even the death penalty are not enough to deter Muslims under Sharia law from watching pornography.

Perhaps it’s because of such a repressed culture or maybe it stems from the inherently perverse nature of Islam, but for whatever reason, Muslim countries more than outrank the Western world in explicit Internet searches.

Data collected from Google reveals that six of the top eight porn-searching countries are Muslim nations, according to The Herald Tribue.

The top porn-obsessed countries are:

  1. Pakistan
  2. Egypt
  3. Iran
  4. Morocco
  5. Saudi Arabia
  6. Turkey


Pakistan ranks number one in searching for “children sex,” as well as “sexy children” and “rape.” Animals are also a favorite, with pig, donkey, and dog topping the list.


The city with the most porn searches is Cairo, which also follows closely behind Pakistan in both child sex and animal sex, searching everything from Elephants to birds. That’s right, they rank number one in “bird sex” searches.


In Turkey there are at least 2 million online users watching porn every minute. Turkey ranks just behind Pakistan in searching for “child porn.”


Iran has an unnatural fetish for incest, as “daddy love” is one of the county’s top searches. “Gay” also tops the list, which proves dangerous because homosexuality is illegal and punishable by the death penalty under Sharia law.
