Miss Iraq forced to flee country over a selfie with Miss Israel

Miss Iraq Dead Threaten Due To Miss Iraq forced to flee country over a selfie with Miss Israel

Share this article: Miss Israel and Miss Iraq posed purposefully at Miss Universe pageant.

Remember the selfie Miss Iraq Sarah Idan posted on Instagram with Miss Israel Adar Gandelsman during Miss Universe pageant last month?

The photo has been liked over 7,000 times.

Iraq doesn't recognise Israel as a state and the two countries thus have no diplomatic ties. She and her family left the country after facing death threats, Miss Israel said.

According to the Times of Israel Idan's family were left with no choice but to leave Iraq "until the situation calms down".

Adar told Hadashot News channel that Sarah lives in U.S. and her family has been forced to flee the country after receiving threats to their lives over Sarah's bikini photoshoot and a selfie she posted with Miss Israel on Instagram.

The family of Miss Iraq had to flee Baghdad over death threats received after the beauty queen appeared in a selfie with Miss Israel.

I would like to point out that the objective of the photo was only to express hope and desire for peace between all countries and our presence in the same place during Miss Universe, as beauty queens and ambassadors for peace, and wanted to spread this message.

She added that the photo "does not signal support for the government of Israel and does not mean I agree or accept its policies in the Arab homeland".

She went on to apologise to all those who consider the picture harmful to the Palestinian cause.

"She is very intelligent and she did it for people to understand that it is possible to live together", Gandelsman said. "And they were getting death threats", she said.

Currently, Idan said she is anxious about traveling back to Iraq during the aftermath of the controversy.

Idan says she was also being threatened online because she wore a bikini during one of the preliminary competitions. "I'm not afraid", she said. At 27, she is a "singer, songwriter and musician", and in 2016, won the Miss Iraq USA title in MI.

Another commentator Samah al-Meshhadani said: "Maybe she will succeed in improving our relations with Israel so we become friends, who knows?"

She's is the first Iraqi beauty queen to participate in Miss Universe since 1972.
