  1. Regarding Miss USA of Arab descent: Of course the ultra conservative Arabs will be upset. The old line is always upset when their young people don’t toe that line- regardless which ethnicity is involved.

    I sincerely hope this beautiful young woman will be safe and suffer no mishap. If I were her parent, she would have a bodyguard, 24/7.

    It is a crazy world out there. The old line for sure, will have something to say. Let’s hope for her sake, they talk and take no action against her.
