By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
It all started with a selfie at a Miss Universe competition. Miss Israel and Miss Iraq took a selfie during the pageant. The caption under their photo was about peace.
The picture went viral. And then Arabs around the world - especially in Iraq, went crazy. Miss Iraq's family has been threatened and they have escaped to the United States.

Miss Iraq also posed in a bikini - that was another major problem.
Miss Israel and Miss Iraq continue to interact with each other.
