1. Saly, I feel sorry for you...
ASTRONAUT ,   USA   (01.18.15)
in that you young women are supposed to be the shining beacons of a New World – a world of Peace and Harmony; yet as Doron stands beside you, SMILING a friendly, warm smile, you are ensnared, entrapped even in this new year of 2015 A.D., by the hatred of your fathers and ancestors. When will YOU and your dear young generation FINALLY THROW OFF THE YOKE of OPPRESSION that has perpetuated for centuries? It will be YOUR world that you inherit when we old farts of The Establishment are gone; what will you young ladies make of it? Love, Peace, and Shalom, Miss Lebanon; Shalom to all Miss Universe contestants.

To really understand the Arab mindset never mind the wars and the terrorism and the killing and the incitement. Just read this story and understand the depth of the hatred they visit on Israel and,increasingly, on all Jews. There is no solution. There is no way this will change when even kids at a Miss Uinverse have to display the hate and APARTHEID the Arabs demonstrate towards Israel, This story will make the horses asses at BDS happy. It really ought to show them that they're boycotting the wrong side.
3. Lebanese 'Model
Al ,   US   (01.18.15)
The idiots commenting on this site are two stupid to understand that they hate you because you support terrorist state that kills civilians, steal land and oppresses the Palestinians under occupation. All that has nothing to do with your religion and every thing to do with your criminal behavior.
4. Wah! Wah!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.18.15)
A platinum blonde Lebanese. Happens every day. I suspect there's a great deal more about her that is artificial, including her role as an independent representative of Lebanon. But platinum blonde? Good grief!
5. Brainwashed And Primitive
Do the arabs Understand Israel and The Jewish People Only Want To Live and Let Live??? Do arabs Understand that Israel Could Wipe Out jihadists and Radical islam with current arsenal??? Israel and Jewish people Want To Be Left Alone. Can arabs so-called moderates Tell their Extremist islamists citizens to Leave Israel out of their power struggle Can the un Leave Israel alone and Curb extreme islamists in tehran, lebanon, syria, yemen and Stop Funding these Terrorist countries with American Taxpayer Money!!! If arabs need aid Let arab league Pay For Their moslem brethren !!!
6. beauty
caleb afendopoulo ,   United States   (01.18.15)
Another proof of the puerility of the Arab mentality!
7. Sarah B #4
Jake   (01.18.15)
I think its time for a thicker pair of reading glasses, dear. The platinum blonde in the photo is Miss Slovenia. Miss Lebanon is standing second from left, next to Miss Israel.

Jake   (01.18.15)
First of all, read what you have written again, carefully. It makes no sense whatsoever. And even your intended meaning is predicated on falsehood. Secondly, you missed the whole point of Beauty Pageants. The contestants are supposed to mingle and establish good will between one another, independent of the hostilities between their respective countries. If your logic was applied, then half the pageants in the competition would be shunning Miss USA.
9. FOR AL #$
Brant ,   Hilton Head USA   (01.18.15)
You say the "idiots commenting on the site are two (guess you meant "too") stupid ..''' and when I read the rest of your post which is nothing but standard reference Palestinian propaganda devoid of any obvious original thinking on your part, I wonder two things: 1, Who's the "idiot" here and 2. Have you ever actually stopped to examine the conflict. Do you have any idea that Israel fought no Palestinians in either 48 or 67 or 73 ; only Arab armies.
10. Hey "Al"
Tomas ,   Canada   (01.18.15)
..."The idiots commenting on this site are two stupid..." who are you calling stupid?
11. The Blonde in the picture
Tim ,   Tel Aviv, Israel   (01.18.15)
is from Slovenia. The second from the left is the Lebanese model.
12. I'm sure if the israeli wasn't jewish this wouldn't have
been a problem.
13. To: Jake at No. 7
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.18.15)
Ah, almost. I'm ready for my first pair of reading glasses. :-) Ms. Slovenia has a bleach job, though. No one needs eyeglasses to detect that!
14. Doron
Benji ,   US   (01.18.15)
You're beautiful and you took the high road. You extended the hand of friendship as a representative of Israel and the judges will take notice of this. We are proud of you. Best of luck!
15. Price to pay ,...
split   (01.18.15)
"It's a shame that we can't set all the hostility aside just for the period of the competition," ,... No kiddin' ,... Girl you don't get it, she doesn't hate you she's (and other girls) not too crazy to share a selfie with someone who represents a hostile neighbor that invaded her country not once but twice in 24 years and you as a part of the army ,... Over one thousand civilians got killed in 2006 and multiple times more got wounded and crippled for life who knows if not some her friends or family members ,...
16. Is there anything that doesn't unnerve Muslimss?
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.18.15)
17. Knowing Matalon and her history of provocateering...
Dani   (01.18.15) probably was a photobomb meant to create (possibly righteous) outrage at expense of Miss Lebanon.
18. Split , you are very split
Selwyn ,   Haifa   (01.18.15)
Well if they didn't want Israel to invade they should not have fired artillery and rockets into Israel, nor should they have kidnapped Israeli soldiers in 2006.
19. #15 Lesson to learn little worm
Benji ,   US   (01.18.15)
You fire 250 missiles per day at Israel and the missiles will come back at you. If Hezbollah attacks Israel from Lebanon, the Lebanese are responsible and they pay the price for the terrorist acts of their home grown cancer.
20. 4 @ Sarah B.
Birdi ,   Israel   (01.18.15)
LOL ! Bottle blonde.
21. #4
Al ,   US   (01.18.15)
#4 sure sounds jealous!!!
22. I fell off my chair laughing!!
LOL, Hillarious   (01.19.15)
Oy, those photo-bombing Zionists, the horror!! Hey and I thought beauty contestants were supposed to bring world peace.
23. My two-cents worth of opinion :
barbara ,   Haifa   (01.19.15)
Lebanon's Saly Greige is apprehensive about her country's criticism - maybe because her family is still in Lebanon (under threat ?) and she has to return to Lebanon ? I wouldn't feel safe to talk to enemy contestant, either, under those circumstances.
24. nice one Tomas
miguel ,   israel   (01.19.15)
gave me a good laugh
25. One wonders
US citizen ,   US   (01.19.15)
what her good and decent peace loving brothers will provide for her before long. One can surmise they will deem themselves honorable in it.
26. Shameful actitude.
Luiz F Haddad ,   Niterói, Brazil   (01.19.15)
As a Brazilian Christian, from Lebanese ascendence, I deplore very much the hostility toward Israel. Unhappily, it means Beiruth's submission to hateful entities. Someday it will be changed, thanks God.
27. it's too bad... these beautiful girls look like they were..
Rafi ,   US   (01.19.15)
... all having a good time together. Haters and demagogues: can't allow that now... can we?
28. Sarah B ...
Mike ,   RKDH   (01.19.15)
Are we looking at different photo's ? Does'nt appear to be platinum blonde to me !
29. AL #3
Arnold ,   Montreal-Canada   (01.21.15)
What is the excuse for the killing of Palestinian Jews by Palestinian Arabs long long before ocuupation. The Arabs were killing Jews way back in 1920. Do not be shy and reply back.
