U.S., Kerry, Obamas honor Neo-Nazi, 9-11 terrorist supporter

Courage without a moral compass?

Samira Ibrahim is the young, courageous, Egyptian woman who exposed the “virginity tests” conducted by the Egyptian army on girls arrested in Tahrir Square during the revolution. Instead of keeping the tests under wraps, she decided to speak up, and for this reason she will receive the Secretary of State’s International Women of Courage Award on Thursday from John Kerry, in the presence of First Lady Michelle Obama.

Yet, she posted comments in support of Hitler and his genocide against Jews, praise for the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the U.S., and support for the terror attack against Israelis in Burgas, Bulgaria on Twitter.

Interesting “heroes” being chosen in the U.S. of late, no?

    It is a man-bites-dog item – the decision to honor Samira Ibrahim has been postponed pending a review of her tweets:

      The fact that they only ‘postponed’ it is ridiculous. This is her latest tweet (this time in Arabic)on returning back to Egypt: “I refuse to apologize to the Zionist lobby in America regarding my previous anti-Zionist statements under pressure from American government therefore they withdrew the award.” http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/samira-ibrahim-speaks_706609.html

      So if she’d just apologized they’d have still given it to her? Knowing the current administration my bet would be yes.

    The amount of stupid coming from this admin. is just getting old.

      Mac, I agree entirely. I mean, seriously, the State Department (the same folks responsible for the Benghazi fiasco) don’t do a simple vetting of the people they are going to extend honours and awards and fly them across the world at tax payer’s expense?

    I agree that this shows how incompetent the people over at State can be, but now that’s it’s clear the Egyptian woman isn’t getting the award, I think there are some positives to take away from this.

    Not that long ago, the woman would have received the award and we never would have heard about her Jew and America hate or if we did hear, it would have been long after the award was given. So that all this came out beforehand is a positive.

    I have little doubt that the people over at State knew about the woman’s comments and just didn’t care. But because things like her comments are coming to light and people are making them an issue, it’s harder for officials to ignore them.

    I think we saw that with Morsi’s and Erdogan’s antisemitic statements. We can and should complain that official condemnations of both men’s comments were insufficient, but I suspect many in the government really just wanted to sweep those comments under the rug but couldn’t.

    We need to do everything we can to bring the antisemitism that’s rampant in the Arab and Muslim world to light and also hold officials accountable if they stay silent. What happened here shows that strategy works.

      Mike, I agree. Unfortunately, the US State Department is a huge bureaucracy and it’s mostly unaccountable to anyone. There is a long history within the State Department of anti-Semitism. Obama, in spite of Morsi’s recent comments, has given Egypt a huge amount of money…which will be used to increase the power of the MB and I doubt a single penny will help the Egyptian people.
