Cultural jihad. Why do Muslimas enter these beauty contests? Why not create their own beauty contests and wear their cloth coffins there?
This is stealth jihad, islamization of the public square.
Some people may object to these pageants in principle, but as far as I know, no one was forcing Muna Jama to enter the Miss Universe contest in the first place. Miss Universe is a beauty contest. It has always included a swimsuit competition. In fact, a swimwear company founded the competition in the first place. If Muna Jama didn’t want to appear in a swimsuit, she didn’t have to enter the contest at all. But instead, she chose to enter and reinforce the oft-reinforced principle that wherever Islamic law and Western customs and practices conflict, Western customs and practices have to give way. She is getting all kinds of congratulations and respect from the establishment media for doing this now, but this principle, as it continues to be applied, will eventually lead to some situations that may cause those establishment media types to wish they hadn’t been so enthusiastic about this. If, that is, they haven’t thrown out every last shred of their self-respect in their never-ending quest not to appear “racist.”
In recent years, the swimsuit portion of beauty pageants has drawn mixed emotions. But for one contestant in July’s Miss Universe Great Britain pageant, it was a downright conundrum. Until she fought for her right to wear a kaftan instead of a bikini, thus making history.
Muna Jama, a 27-year-old Muslim woman from London, had been invited to the finals of the competition — which selects the Miss Universe finalist that will go on to represent England in the international pageant — two years ago, but declined because she was wary of breaking with her religion’s traditions about wearing revealing clothing.
When she re-entered this year and was again invited to the finals, she negotiated with pageant officials who finally conceded that she could “wear a cover-up if she chose,” Metro UK reports.
“I wouldn’t wear a bikini to a beach, so I’m not going to wear one in a competition to score points,” Jama said to the daily.
When it came time to participate in the swimsuit portion of the competition, she appeared on stage in a brightly coloured, full-length kaftan. She also wore the garment for an official competition photo shoot….
