[ynet] – 18 contestants reached the final round in the Miss World Muslimah competition, the Muslim answer to the West’s beauty contests. They paraded in glittering dresses and headscarves in the ceremony, which took place in Indonesia, the most populous Muslim-majority country in the world.
The winner was Fatma Ben Guefrache, a 25-year-old Tunisian… She won a gold watch, a gold dinar, and a visit to Mecca.
“May almighty Allah help me in my mission and free [Nazi] Palestine [so they can kill Jews]. Please, please free Palestine and the Syrian people,” Fatma said with tears in her eyes.
The contestants were judged based not only on their physical appearance, but also for their ability to quote from the Koran and their views on Islam’s place in the modern world.
