Is it really necessary to ask political question to beauty pageant contestants? Like most forms of entertainment, beauty pageants are heavily influenced by leftists. Therefore, the questions which they ask the contestants are set up as "gotcha" moments. If a participant dares to answer with a response which is in any way conservative, she will pay the price for not appearing liberal enough. Carrie Prejean, last year's first-runner-up, suffered for doing just that.
Which brings us to the 2010 Miss U.S.A. pageant. Miss Oklahoma dared to opine with a politically incorrect answer to a question about illegal immigration, which may have cost her the title and resulted in her becoming the first-runner-up. Unfortunately, we will never know the truth behind that decision.
In all fairness, the winner, Miss Michigan Rima Fakih, an Arab American and Muslim with roots in Lebanon, was drop-dead gorgeous. But, it is interesting to note that she has relatives who are members of the terrorist group Hezbollah. You may remember that it was Hezbollah which was responsible for the Beirut Marine barracks killings in 1983 which resulted in the death of 241 Americans.
Perhaps, the judge should have asked Rima, as a commenter at Gateway Pundit suggested, if she accepted Israel's right to exist. Another appropriate question would be: Would she denounce the terrorist acts committed by her Lebanese family members against innocent Israelis? Or maybe they should have asked her how, as a Muslim, she could prance around nearly naked in a bikini when that goes against Muslim beliefs.
With the heavy dose of political correctness which caters to the Islamic faith, I wouldn't be surprised if her religion was as asset in her winning the title of Miss U.S.A.

Figures. Miss Oklahoma Places Second in Miss America Contest After Saying She’d Support Arizona Immigration Law (Video)
"Miss Oklahoma Morgan Elizabeth Woolard was a top contestant for the Miss USA crown this year. But, after she came out in support of the Arizona immigration law she was forced to take a back seat to Miss Michigan. Miss Oklahoma was runner up in this year’s competition.
Here is how she handled the toughest political question of the night:
Apparently, although a great majority of Americans (62-73%) agree with her, the judges didn’t like her answer. She placed second.
Instead, Miss Michigan Rima Fakih, an Arab American whose family reportedly has strong ties to the Hezbollah terror organization, won the crown."
Here's where it get much more interesting, via Debbie Schlussel:
Donald Trump, Dhimmi: Miss Hezbollah Rima Fakih Wins Miss USA; Rigged for Muslima? Miss Oklahoma’s Arizona Immigration Answer
By Debbie Schlussel
"It’s a sad day in America but a very predictable one, given the politically correct, Islamo-pandering climate in which we’re mired. The Hezbollah-supporting Shi’ite Muslim, Miss Michigan Rima Fakih–whose bid for the pageant was financed by an Islamic terrorist and immigration fraud perpetrator–won the Miss USA contest. I was on top of this story before anyone, telling you about who Fakih is and her extremist and deadly ties."
Read it all.
More on the modest Muslim beauty queen who was a pole-dancer. Don't think for a moment that they will take her crown from her for her objectionable behavior. They wouldn't dare because they would have to deal with an angry CAIR and protests of Islamophobia.
As beautiful as she is, Miss Michigan was not without her blunders, calling birth control a "controlled substance".
