As-Salāmu `Alaykum(السلام عليكم), baby!

Celebrating the announcement of the latest winner of the Miss USA crown, Miss Michigan Rima Fakih was the lucky lady receiving the much sought after title in Las Vegas on Sunday (May 16). The 24-year-old Arab American from Michigan beat out 50 other women in the pageant! It's hard to get photos of the swimsuit segment -- or any photos of Rima in her bikini -- on the web unless you go (and pay to download) on the Miss USA website. Fakih will represent the U.S. in the 2010 Miss Universe pageant Oct. 31 in Las Vegas. She's a DISH!

Prior to this event, Rima was crowned as "Stripper 101" Pole Dancing Champion in 2007.

For now, she gets a one-year lease in a New York apartment with living expenses, an undisclosed salary, and various health, professional and beauty services.

When asked how she felt about being the new Miss USA, Rima — who has been on a strict diet in the weeks preceding the pageant — replied: “Ask me after I’ve had a pizza.”

Rima grew up Christian / Muslim!

Omar K at Pak Tea House tells the story of a bizarre journey of soul searching as the Pakistani embraced the practices of Islam and slowly distanced himself from them.

Conservative author Daniel Pipes, who was briefly appointed by former President George W. Bush to the U.S. Institute of Peace, opined that “this surprising frequency of Muslims winning beauty pageants makes me suspect an odd form of affirmative action.”

Michelle Malkin [HBB#4], quick to show her teeth to critics when they bring up her Filipino heritage, quipped "She nearly tripped over her gown.

She called birth control a “controlled substance.”

She argued that contraceptives should be covered by health insurers because they are “expensive” — and then said you could get them for “free” from your OB/GYN’s office.

And now she is the new Miss USA!"
