Miss Universe Submits To Islamic Sharia Law; Deletes Miss Iraq's Bikini Photos

MISS IRAQ'S DILEMMA: The last time that Iraq competed in Miss Universe pageant was in 1972. The contestant, Wijdan Burhan El-Deen Sulyman, wore a one-piece swimsuit which hardly caused a stir within the Muslim world. Fast forward 45 years later to 2017, Iraq is back with a beautiful representative, Sarah Idan, 27, born and raised in Baghdad. However, her participation in the world's most prestigious pageant has enraged fundamentalist Muslims in her country and elsewhere. As a result, her family has been receiving death threats and the Miss Universe Organization (MUO) has been forced to take down all of her bikini photos from the official website. This is Islamic Sharia law at its best. By removing all of Miss Iraq's swimsuit photos, MUO has caved in to Sharia. Not only has Miss Iraq's individual freedom been curtailed by a primitive and savage law, MUO's control rights have also been compromised. Next year, should Iraq send another representative, better not send a Muslim!

During the preliminary competition held on November 20th at Planet Hollywood, Idan competed both in the evening gown and swimsuit segments. She actually wore a bikini (above). The event was live streamed via Facebook. However, when the stream was shown again on Saturday, November 25, Miss Iraq's swimsuit performance was deleted. Go figure. Critical Beauty has received a message from a reliable source that Idan might very well earn a spot in the Top 16 because "she has a story to tell" and that her inclusion is good for publicity and ratings. We'll just have to see about that. 

The 2017 Miss Universe pageant will air LIVE from The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Las Vegas, November 26, on FOX. Steve Harvey is set to return as host.

End Of The Year Review - Pageantry In 2021

  And the winner is... Miss Quasi-Normal. Runners-up include Miss Apartheid Universe and Miss Covid World.         2021 pageantry was characterized by a gradual return to normalcy as pageant competitions – which had been cancelled or postponed in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic – succeeded in staging physical productions while paying close attention to universal safety guidelines. Even major events like the Tokyo Summer Olympics, which was cancelled in 2020, successfully took place in 2021. Miss Universe and Miss Grand International held two editions (one each for 2020 and 2021), The Miss World finals was postponed for March 2022 after several contestants had tested positive for COVID-19 in Puerto Rico which hosts the pageant. The year was also a milestone for Miss Universe and Miss World’s 70th anniversary and Miss America’s 100th anniversary.

The email was cc’d to Crystle and Michael Hannah (franchise director of Miss USA).

Natly also displays screenshots of direct messages sent to her by former Miss USA contestants (the names hav
