Recommended Posts

Linor Abargil is an Israeli model, who was the winner of the Miss World beauty pageant in 1998, after she had been crowned Miss Israel. She is 176 cm (5 ft 9 in) tall.

Two months before being crowned Miss World, Abargil was raped in Italy by an Egyptian born Israeli Shlomo Nur, who was working as a travel agent in Milan. She made her case public and Nur was arrested in Israel, charged with and found guilty of rape. Abargil called for other women to follow her example.

February 2006 newspapers announced that Lithuanian basketball superstar Šarūnas Jasikevičius proposed to Linor Abargil, and the two started planning their wedding.

Soon after Ynetnews announced that Baruch Marzel, the Chairman of the Jewish National Front party, wrote a letter to Linor Abargil, in which he called on her to turn down Šarūnas' marriage proposal unless he converts.

Abargil and Jasikevičius married in a ceremony near Barcelona, Spain, in July, 2006.
