Miss Israel & Miss Lebanon Go to War ... Over a Selfie!

Miss Israel and Miss Lebanon are dropping bombs on one another, but it has nothing to do with the Holy Land ... it's about a selfie.  

The two women are competing in the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant and posed for a photo together, which Miss Israel Doron Matalon posted online last week.

But the pic put Miss Lebanon Saly Greige in a hot water in her homeland -- ya know, the whole Israel and Lebanon thing -- so she posted her own version ... with Matalon cropped out. 

Greige said she was very cautious to avoid being photographed with Miss Israel and claims that Matalon in essence photobombed her. 

She wrote, "I was having a photo with Miss Japan, Miss Slovenia, suddenly Miss Israel jumped in and took a selfie, and uploaded it on her social media."

Matalon responded to the cropping, writing, "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."
