Beauties and the beach of Eilat

The 2021 Miss Universe pageant is taking place in Israel this coming week, and there are a lot of contestants who're very happy to attend:
The security to access the port in the southern Israeli city of Eilat is so tight on Thursday, one would be forgiven for mistaking it for the site of a UN summit of world leaders, not the location of the 70th annual Miss Universe pageant.

As one source affiliated with the organizers of the pageant explained to Breitbart, the beefed-up security measures are because the Port of Eilat is under the jurisdiction of the Shin Bet security agency.

Still, with the drama that has unfolded in the weeks leading up to the pageant, it’s fitting that one of the most powerful security agencies in the world is in charge of protecting the 80 women taking part.

The most prominent actor in that drama, of course, is the old favorite – good old Jew hatred.

The anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement came in fast and heavy, swinging its wrecking ball of hate at various contestants in an attempt to persuade them to nix the pageant.

In the case of Miss South Africa, it failed miserably, with the lovely Lalela Mswane defying both homegrown BDS activists and the South African government and taking part in the pageant. The 24-year-old, who is a qualified lawyer, said she views her participation in the pageant as a chance “to contribute to a process of dialogue and peace.”

Turkey’s contestant, 22-year-old Cemrenaz Turhan, also came under intense criticism by BDS activists for choosing to come.

“I’m not a politician, I came here for a competition,” she responded. “I love all countries, I didn’t think for a second that I would boycott Israel — I’m not thinking about that.

“I’m very happy to be here, the Israeli people are so kind and so amazing,” she added.
And again, contestants from the UAE/Morocco are also attending, and that makes clear this is all a non-issue. It's very good to see that Israel's being accepted as it should be as a host for a very positive form of showbiz.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
