“Religion of Peace”: Another Muslim Beauty Queen Murdered for Immodesty

By Debbie Schlussel

Amid all the undue, gushing hype over Muslim Miss Hezbollah USA Rima Fakih, the Islamic terrorism supporter and close relative of “martyrs,” the real story of Muslim “beauty queens” is that of Katya Koren.  She ain’t the first.  Won’t be the last.  Just a progression of female honor killing victims of Islam, whose beauty pageant story endings never get the politically correct mainstream media’s attention.  This got a New York Daily News article, but hardly the incessant media coverage Miss Hezbollah USA got with Donald Trump’s eager participation.


Katya Koren: Beauty Pageant Contestant Murdered by Islam

A would-be teen beauty queen was stoned to death after her participation in a Ukranian pageant reportedly infuriated local Muslim youths.

Katya Koren, 19, was targeted by three fellow teens who said her seventh-place finish in the beauty contest was a violation of Muslim laws, according to British newspaper reports.

One of the suspects, identified as 16-year-old Bihal Gaziev, told authorities that he had no regrets about the stoning because the dark-haired Koren “violated the laws of Sharia.”

The teen’s battered body was found buried in the forest near her village in the Crimea section of the Ukraine. She had disappeared a week earlier.

Koren, described by friends as a stylish dresser, finished seventh in the beauty pageant. The British newspapers said the girl, just like her attackers, was a Muslim.

Alhamdillullah [praise allah], another “menace to the world”–for wearing a bathing suit or strutting in high heels or some other such unspeakable crime–is dead. Yup, that’s the Islamic outlook . . . worldwide.

When will people wake up and smell the coffee? This is so sad.

Is NOW going to speak out against this? Funny how this is so hush, hush.

BTW, so much for the “peaceful” religion we keep hearing about.

Ivan on June 1, 2011 at 12:39 pm

They haven’t reported if she was raped, but do not be surprised.

pat on June 1, 2011 at 12:58 pm

Why her? Why not Miss Hezbollah USA?

It can’t be cuz she dressed Western.

Just what did she do to upset them?

NormanF on June 1, 2011 at 1:04 pm

“The British newspapers said the girl, just like her attackers, was a Muslim.”

To me, this is the most interesting sentence in the whole article. What’s conspicuously missing in this piece are words from the young woman’s surviving relatives. I would love to hear what any of her immediate family has to say about the whole thing. Did they approve of her entering the contest in the first place, or was it something she did behind their backs? If she DID enter the pageant with their blessings, what do they have to say about what their religion just did to their daughter? If they DID NOT approve of her participation, then are they on the side of the murderers?

And exactly how did the murderers know she was a Muslim? “Katya” is an extremely common Russian name, and gives no indication of her religion. It would appear that the attackers were obviously familiar with her and her family. Perhaps they all attended the same mosque.

In short, this article is missing a lot of pertinent information.

    There are lot of secularized Muslims in the Ukraine and Russia. In the Soviet period, Islam was heavily repressed and Muslims were given Slavic names. Since the demise of Communism, religion has made a comeback in the former CIS and this includes Islam, particularly the fundamentalist variety. And the conflict over being a minority faith in a Christian country is a palpable one. Islam is not one to peacefully assimilate.

    NormanF on June 1, 2011 at 1:33 pm

      “Crimean” Tatars are interlopers, Norman, more then people of Deabornistan. Crimean Peninsula is a scene of the Orthodox Russia’s victories over Moslems. They were deported by Stalin for collaboration with the Nazis but returned by Andrei Gromyko before Jews were allowed to go to Israel.

      Lev Shmukler on June 4, 2011 at 11:58 pm

My take to my own question is Katya Koren was murdered not so much because she took part in a beauty contest but because she lost. Would Rima Fakih have suffered the same fate if she hadn’t won? I think yes, she would have.

Having “their” woman lose was an affront to their male honor that had to be rectified at all costs. You just don’t lose to the infidels. If you do, it needs to be avenged.

No great mystery here. And for that Koren paid for it with her young life. The appearance of honor trumps human life in Islamic culture.

Worldwide, indeed.

NormanF on June 1, 2011 at 1:25 pm

I seem to recall a beauty pageant (Miss World, I think) that was to be held in Nigeria. This so enraged many of Nigeria’s Muslims (its northern half is mostly Muslim) they engaged in riots that ultimately cost a few hundred lives. The pageant was relocated.

Israel, in contrast, regularly participates in such contests. The ultra-Orthdox may not approve, but there are no riots. They even won once or twice – hardly surprising; beautiful women in Israel are not uncommon.

Raymond in DC on June 1, 2011 at 1:41 pm


They know they won’t win them. Islam has an inferiority complex and not just with the weaker sex.

And you know they are not exactly concerned with female modesty. As we know, its pure hokum.

NormanF on June 1, 2011 at 1:46 pm

“Katya Koren, 19, was targeted by three fellow teens who said her seventh-place finish in the beauty contest was a violation of Muslim laws”

The article makes it sound like her murderers were unhappy about her doing so poorly.Like they expected her to win 1st place.

ebayer on June 1, 2011 at 1:48 pm


Yup. That was my theory. The loss is all that separates her from Rima Fakih. In Islam, women walk on eggshells.

NormanF on June 1, 2011 at 1:53 pm

Hm, I wonder if all of the Rima Fakih apologist are going to rush to their keyboards and blame this murder on DS or the NY Daily News for reporting this story about this beauty queen girl being murdered by a muslim teenager? The fact is is that this is a sad story, she was so young and very attractive looking and her life was taken away by a muslim beast who’s nothing but a “koran-thumping” lowlife.

Bihal Gaziev should be put to death for killing that poor girl, and this is another reason why the culture of islam is so damn backwards, if a muslim female dress too western, she must be put to death? WTF! I just don’t know when will islam reform themselves and live like the rest of us who are currently living in the 21 century instead of being stuck in the 6th century.

“A nation is defined by it’s borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on June 1, 2011 at 1:54 pm

Sean, if a Muslim woman makes Muslim men look bad, that’s when they kill her.

Like I observed, in oriental cultures, the appearance of honor matters more than anything. Losing honor is akin to being sentenced to a living death.

Honor is more important to Muslim men than the sanctity of a human life.

NormanF on June 1, 2011 at 2:01 pm

Fear of loss of “honor” is little more than a criminal- narcissist personality who believes every innocent gensture is something “done” to him. It isn’t so much hatred of a free woman that enrages male Muslims; it’s fear of a free person of either sex. I detest their culture and the apologists, Right and Left, for it. (Dinesh D’Souza, take note.)

Seek on June 1, 2011 at 2:51 pm

The unbelievable arrogance of those muslim murderers! Who appointed them G-d? They just gave a muslim woman the death penalty.

Lady in Northern Virginia on June 1, 2011 at 3:05 pm

Muslims are enslaved by the Satanic cult known as Islam. If they leave, the die.

Mohammed said “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, then kill him.” (Bukhari Volume 9, Number 85, Number 57)

Jew Lover on June 1, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Leaving Islam is a capital offense, of course. Shaming Islam is also a capital offense, depending on who feels shamed.

NormanF on June 1, 2011 at 4:12 pm

Religion of Peace?

Cult is more like it.

Sam Adams on June 1, 2011 at 4:35 pm

These comments are the greatest things I have ever read. I love the dead give away of people saying “Im christian” or “Im conservative”. It is clear that muslims are not only a religion of peace but a religion of total class. I havent seen so many people drop the “C-Bomb” in all my life. It is no wonder why those countries are so far behind in the rest of the world.

Forsberg on June 1, 2011 at 4:36 pm

Solution to the world problems: Exterminate ALL of isalm. Period!

Realist_not_idealist on June 1, 2011 at 5:30 pm

So someone claims to be Muslim and the hatred mongers jump all over it. I could claim to be a JEDI priest do something despicable , would you all go out and ban star wars? Wow, really did jesus not say judge not lest ye be judged?

and cast not the first stone. and so many things telling you NOT to sow hatred and half truths. All you so-called Christians are guilty of a great sin by every foul thing you say with no real justification.

MarvoDaMighty on June 1, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    You really do need to try harder: “One of the suspects, identified as 16-year-old Bihal Gaziev, told authorities that he had no regrets about the stoning because the dark-haired Koren ‘violated the laws of Sharia.”

    Also, you seem to be more concerned about defending Islam at any cost rather than showing even the slightest compassion for that brutally slaughtered woman. If you are looking for hatred, it is in you. You are really not any different from Bihal, aside from perhaps not having gone as far in your actions.

    Worry01 on June 1, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    A little study of history shows Islam reduced much of the world to slavery. And oh – once you’re in it, you’re in it for life. You can leave the Mafia. But you can’t leave Islam! But then again, people like you prefer not to be confused with the facts.

    NormanF on June 2, 2011 at 8:54 am

Marvo, your post is ridiculous. Sorry, but it is. Muslims get “jumped all over” because this isn’t an isolated story. Don’t you ever read??? Just Google some searches: shariah law stoning, islam beheading, shariah women, you get the picture. Thousands of stories corroborate the fact that Islam is a sick religion. All the holier-than-thou pretentious garbage you just threw out won’t change the facts. We see with our own eyes the devastation Islam inflicts, not only on the rest of the world, but its OWN FOLLOWERS. It’s a sick, twisted cult. Conservative and/or Christian has nothing to do with it….so stop trying to inject some kind of useless redirection of the subject matter.

Anna on June 1, 2011 at 8:46 pm

    It is a mechanical defense, and not a rational one. You are seeing something more akin to a dog barking after it has had its tail stepped on than what one would expect from a sentient being. It is like a cocaine addict denying his habit or even defending it as good despite the more than evident harm it causes him and those around him. You are viewing a faith that degrades the mind and wastes the soul. Its effects are all too evident in the visages of those Islamist protesters. You see a wild feral rage that one would expect a sufferer of rabies at the end stages of the disease.

    Worry01 on June 1, 2011 at 11:38 pm

Contrast the Ukraine’s Muslims’ contributions to civilization with the contributions of the Jews of Odessa:

“Just walk down the street looking at some of Odessa’s famous addresses. Havkin who saved India from plaque (sic)… lived here. It is here that the famous violinist D. Oistrakh produced the first sounds of music, which later reached the rest of the world. Here you will also find the address of the great poet and warrior Vladimir Jabotinsky, the infamously talented Hebrew poet Chaim Bialik, the world known Jewish historian Semion Dubnov, the mathematician Mark Krein, the politician and first mayor of Tel- Aviv, Meir Dizengoff, the father of spiritual Zionism Ahad ha-Am, the creator of the first highly acclaimed Yiddish literature Mendele Mocher-Sforim. Together with other Jews – bankers, lawyers, artists, poets, writers and even street venders – they breathed life into this city, inspired it and in that sense created its aura.” (From Migdalworld.org)

Add to this the violinists Jascha Heifetz and Isaac Stern.

And as for prominent Muslims of the Ukraine, and their contribution to world civilization? -I come up empty-handed.

commonsense on June 2, 2011 at 12:50 am

I’m crude enough that I’ll usually find a way to work a smart-@ss comment into any post. Not this one. This is way to tragic.

Scratch that. I think I will add something.
@Marvo – Actually, I am a Jedi priest, Obi Wan Corn-obi. Jesus also said “…you’ll know them by their fruits…”. The “fruits” of these 7th century towelhead animals include beheading, homicide bombers, burqas, bacha boys, stoning, raping infidels (ask Lara Logan), and a list of other atrocities too long to mention, except female genital mutilation, can’t leave that out.

CornCoLeo on June 2, 2011 at 2:09 am

“And as for prominent Muslims of the Ukraine, and their contribution to world civilization? -I come up empty-handed.”

Slave-raiding and tribute-exacting of nearby non-Muslim polities during the reign of the Islamic Crimean Khanate (a vassal of the Ottoman Empire) under the Giray dynasty. The “depopulation of the steppe”, as it were…

Hate to say it, but that’s the main contribution of the Crimean Tatars to history…

Philip_Daniel on June 2, 2011 at 8:39 am

Islam wins again! This dirty apostate was dealt with in accordance with sharia! Just think of the threat she represented! If she was allowed to participate in this kafir event – just think of all the other muslimahs who would have wanted to!

What’s next? Would they be allowed to drive cars in the Saudi Kingdom? Oh, the horror…………..

Tanstaafl on June 3, 2011 at 9:13 am

I’ve said it before, why do we have anything to do with these people at all?

Tommy Thomas on October 18, 2012 at 4:15 pm

The two confessions of the faith in Islam should be; there is no narrower mind than Islam and Moslems are the blood thirsty people of the world.

Firstly I want to say how sorry I am to have had this story been made aware to me such a sad loss of a young life, may peace and blessing be upon the young woman and her family.

Now I am a Muslim, I am also a uk beauty queen.. Although I competed in many beauty pageants winning many titles and even holding my own pageants over the past few years, however all of this was before I converted to islam although I was also learning while I was competing after converting I have gave up pageant life not because ‘women are oppressed and weak in islam’ but because we are taught that we are so respected by men of islam we do not want to be seen as sexual objects and tempt men with our beauty or encourage jealousy upon ourselfs but to respect our body and beauty and not seek fame or wealth from it, this is only scratching the surface on why we choose to cover there are many other reasons all to protect, respect and love the women who islam teaches are not weak or slaves or to be beaten as many uneducated people seem to think but we are to be loved, respected and any Muslim man will tell you how paradise is at the feet of his mother (yes a woman) and how they are so many teachings on how men should love, protect and respect their wife’s .. So those who think islam teaches anything to do with violence towards women or murder being ok are so far wrong it is infact the oppersit so when making such comments people should take time to research islam thru correct sources such as the Quran and they will surely change their opinion and most possibly their religion.

I want to make a very strong point that Muslims are NOT perfect but islam is so when you hear of a Muslim doing wrong that is not islam that is the person who is.
I ask when a Christian commits a crime such as murder do you blame that man or do you blame Christianity? Again I stress muslims are not perfect but islam is.
What I say may offend and annoy but I am letting people know how blaming islam for Muslims crimes is incorrect as these Muslims are not following islam correctly so please try to understand this, again as a Muslim beauty queen this story fills my heart with sadness and I hope crimes such as this come to an end.
