Newly-crowned Miss USA courts controversy with pole-dancing

CHICAGO (AFP) – The controversy began as soon as the glittery diamond tiara was lowered on Rima Fakih’s dark tresses.

Is she the first Muslim Miss USA? Will she be able to keep the title after photos surfaced of Fakih winning a pole-dancing contest?

And – on the conservative blogosphere – is she a secret Islamist extremist?

Fakih, a Lebanese immigrant from Dearborn, Michigan who was raised in both the Christian and Muslim faiths, is clearly no fundamentalist.

But her willingness to parade around in a microscopic bikini on national television did not stop conservative blogger Debbie Schlussel from insisting that Fakih was a radical because she shares her family name with some officials in Hizbollah, the militant Lebanese Shiite Muslim group which Washington lists as a terrorist organisation.

Hours after Fakih’s Las Vegas win Sunday night, the ill-sourced and illogical rumor went viral, with “rima fakih Hizbollah” becoming a suggested search term on Google.

Arab-American and Muslim groups hailed Fakih’s win as a sign of the diversity of their culture and their role in American society.
