    Immediately after winning she will be buried up to her neck and stoned to death.

    I was think more of a Stroke-accent, than a Mass. accent.

    Impressive. The rhythms and intervals in Eastern music can get pretty intricate. Coming to this music from outside the culture isn`t easy for many musicians trained in Western music.

    LOL @ Gerry`s comment. I shouldn`t laugh at that remark, but--darn you, Gerry--that was pretty darned funny.

    555, back at you.

    I love the double-standard here. Ethnic contestants are welcomed with open-arms to any American talent competition - even a transsexual can now become Miss Universe. But if we were to apply the logic of her critics here, it would be a paradox; by embracing diversity and THEIR foreign cultural values, it would entail keeping arabs from competing on a reality show for Americans . Brilliant! Any wonder why traditional middle-eastern values are incompatible with the progressive mindset which coddles and panders to them? News-flash - they don`t share it, and don`t plan on reciprocating either. Intolerance

    She isn`t an immigrant to that state she is an American entering an Arabic cultural contest. It`d be like a Japanese national competing in America`s Got Talent. It isn`t about race, it`s about nationality.

    I love how they say that an American shouldn`t be competing on a reality show for Arabs, yet if we were to exclude Arabs from an American reality show, no doubt they would think themselves ill used.

    Funny how you guys lock onto and hone in on the few idiots over there who say she shouldn`t be competing--very similar, in fact, to the idiots who here in the U.S. who tweeted about Ms. USA a few months back. Or about the kid in traditional mariachi garb who sang the national anthem.

    Thank you for verifying my philosophy that every culture, ever nation, ever people is comprised of about 90% good, decent people who like others and try to treat them with respect with respect and decenty, regardless creed, nationality, skin color sexual orientation, etc., and about 10% non-nice individuals. Regardless of culture, nation or region, that`s what I`ve observed and it seems played out right here.

    Isn`t that pretty much the point of this entire site?
