Sarah Abdali Iran (IRAQ UNIVERSE 2017)

Post  bonner on Fri Nov 03, 2017 4:14 am

Babylonian beauty is the new MISS UNIVERSE IRAQ 2017!

27 year old Sarah Abdali Idan was crowned the new Miss Universe Iraq 2017 on 1 November in a special ceremony held at Miss Iraq Organization headquarters in Qadisiya, Baghdad. She was chosen via casting after the original winner of Miss Iraq this year was dehtroned. Sarah was crowned by former Miss Iraq 2015, Shaymaa Qasim, who could not participate in Miss Universe last year.

Sarah is from the capital city of Baghdad but her parents originally hail from the city of Hillah in Babylon. She is a singer, songwriter and musician by profession and graduated with a degree in performance arts.

After the invasion of Iraq in 2003, Sarah worked with the American led coalition forces in Baghdad through which she received the opportunity to travel to United States. She is also the reigning Miss Iraq USA having won the title last year in Michigan.

Sarah will make history as the first Iraqi woman in over 40 years to participate in the Miss Universe contest this year which is slated to be held on 26 November 2017 at the AXIS Theater of Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, USA. Iraq last participated in this prestigious international beauty contest in 1972 when the country was represented by Wejdan Sulyman in Puerto Rico.

So much for diplomacy by selfie.
Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, and her family had to flee their homeland after receiving death threats over a photo she posted online last month.

Why? Because Idan posed with Miss Israel, Adar Gandelsman, at a Miss Universe International Beauty Pageant, the Times of Israel reported.
Idan came under fire for posting the photo to Instagram, captioned, “Peace and Love from Miss Iraq and Miss Israel,” in addition to modeling a bikini.
“The two of those things together caused a mess for her back home where people made threats against her and her family that if she didn’t return home and take down the photos, they would remove her (Miss Iraq) title, that they would kill her,” Adar Gandelsman told Israeli TV, the paper reported.
In another Instagram post, Idan apologized to those who thought the photo was “harmful to the Palestinian cause,” clarifying that it was not a political statement, but instead meant to “express hope and desire for peace between the two countries,” the paper reported.
She added, it “does not signal support for the government of Israel and does not mean I agree or accept its policies in the Arab homeland.”

Iraq country does not have formal diplomatic relations with Israel, and the two countries are considered enemies, the paper reported.
Despite the backlash, Gandelsman said her friend did not regret her decision to post the image to social media, which she has yet to remove from Instagram, reported the paper.
“She did it to so that people can understand that it’s possible to live together,” she said.

I feel bad for her and her family. I am glad I was born in the Philippines.
