At least it’s just photo-bombing for now! Miss Lebanon acts in selfie-defence over Miss Israel snapshot.

Beauty contestant Miss Lebanon has defended herself against claims she posed for a selfie with Miss Israel during the latest iteration of the Miss Universe competition, saying that the latter “jumped in” to take the controversial picture. Greige came under fire in Lebanon after Israel’s contestant at the competition in Miami, Doron Matalon, posted a photo to her Instagram account, of herself, Miss Lebanon, Miss Japan and Miss Slovenia posing together. Earlier, photos circulated on social media showing Miss Lebanon Saly Greige surrounded by the beauty queens of Israel, Slovenia and Japan caused uproar back in her homeland, Beirut-based newspaper The Daily Star reported. Saly Greige was pictured smiling alongside Miss Israel, Doron Matalon, Miss Slovenia and Miss Japan in Miami ahead of the pageant this week in a photograph posted on the Israeli’s Instagram site. The photo circulated on Lebanese social media, bringing a harsh backlash against Greige for posing with Israel’s Matalon, the representative of an enemy state.

In 1993, the government disqualified its Miss Universe representative after Agence France-Presse moved a photo of her smiling arm-in-arm with her Israeli competitor. One user tweeted: “You [Greige] could have avoided mingling with the Israeli contestant like previous Lebanese contestants have done throughout the years. Israel fought a bloody war against Lebanon’s Hezbollah in 2006, which killed more than 1,200 people in Lebanon, mostly civilians, and some 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers. The New York Post report that the Lebanese government will “launch an investigation” into the offending photo, and a decision will be made this week if Saly can continue in the competition.

And if you were harassed like you say, you could have at least avoided the huge smile [we see] on your face.” Some called for the Miss Lebanon title to be taken from Ms Greige.
