Selfie Brings Death Threats

TIara on a table

Miss Iraq posed for a selfie with Miss Israel at the 2017 Miss Universe Beauty Pageant. The result? Miss Iraq received death threats and her family had to go into hiding.

If a selfie causes this much tzuris (Yiddish for trouble), imagine how far away the world is from a real peace with Muslim extremists.

It’s difficult for Western minds to comprehend why a photo should cause such a fuss. Probably as difficult for extremist Muslims to understand why beauty pageants are so compelling in 2017.
