  3. Looks harmless, right? Well, maybe not. Israel and Lebanon are technically at war. Lebanese critics, including TV station Al Jadeed, slammed Greige for the snapshot, according to NBC News. Some even called for Greige to be stripped of her crown.
  4. Greige responded on social media, telling her fans that she had been photo-bombed. “I was having a photo with Miss Japan, Miss Slovenia and myself; suddenly Miss Israel jumped in, took a selfie, and put it on her social media," she wrote on Facebook.
  5. Greige also posted the controversial photo – with Miss Israel cropped out – to Instagram.
  6. To all my supporters and Lebanese citizens, I would like to thank you indeed for your continuous support of Miss Lebanon at the Miss Universe contest...
The truth behind the photo, since the first day of my arrival to participate to Miss universe,I was very cautious to avoid being in any photo or communication with Miss isreal, who tried several times to take a photo with me.

This is what happened and I hope to have your full support in the Miss Universe contest

  7. Matalon said the controversy "doesn't surprise me, but it still makes me sad."
  8. לא שזה הפתיע אותי, אבל חבל שאי אפשר לשים את העוינות בצד , רק לשלושה שבועות שבהן יש לנו הזדמנות נדירה להכיר בנות מכל העולם (וגם מהמדינות השכנות) לשמוע על התרבויות השונות ולחוות את החוויה הזאת ביחד. 
It doesn't surprise me, but it still makes me sad. Too bad you can not put the hostility out of the game, only for three weeks of an experience of a lifetime that we can meet girls from around the world and also from the neighboring country. @salygreige_official @miss_israel @missunews @missuniverse  @missuniversusa #lebanon #israel #missuniverse2014
