Picture says a thousand words

At the Miss Universe competition in Miami, Miss Israel snapped a selfie with a few other contestants – from right to left: Miss Japan, Miss Slovenia and Miss Lebanon.

That’s what these competitions are all about – being friendly and charming and beautiful. And, just for one moment, living in a world where international differences don’t matter.

Except that’s the thing. Because Lebanon is dominated by Muslim terrorists, like Hezbollah, and even foreign soldiers from Iran. And they regularly fire rockets over the border at Israeli civilians. And so Israel retaliates.
