The State Department just issued a press release stating that Secretary of State John Kerry and First Lady Michelle Obama will be honoring Samira Ibrahim with an "International Women of Courage Award." Interestingly, Samira is a Hitler-quoting anti-Semite who says she wants to see America burn.
Gotta respect the intelligence of our leaders. What's next for Samira? A Nobel Prize? On Friday March 8, Michelle Obama will join John Kerry at a special ceremony at the State Department to present ten women the Secretary of States International Women of Courage Award. The award, says the press release, is given to women around the globe who have shown exceptional courage and leadership in advocating for womens rights and empowerment, often at great personal risk.
Five of these awards are being given to women from Muslim-majority countries, underscoring the unique plight of women in those countries. The only problem is that one of the women to be recognized is an anti-Semite and supports the 9/11 attacks on the United States.
Samira Ibrahim, as the State Departments profile describes her, was among seven women subjected by the Egyptian military to forced virginity tests in March 2011. The press release further notes that Samira was arrested while in high school for writing a paper that criticized Arab leaders insincere support to the Palestinian cause. Apparently, the State Department is unaware of her other convictions.
On Twitter, Ibrahim is quite blunt regarding her views. On July 18 of last year, after five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed a suicide bombing attack, Ibrahim jubilantly tweeted: An explosion on a bus carrying Israelis in Burgas airport in Bulgaria on the Black Sea. Today is a very sweet day with a lot of very sweet news.
Ibrahim frequently uses Twitter to air her anti-Semitic views. Last August 4, commenting on demonstrations in Saudi Arabia, she described the ruling Al Saud family as dirtier than the Jews. Seventeen days later she tweeted in reference to Adolf Hitler: I have discovered with the passage of days, that no act contrary to morality, no crime against society, takes place, except with the Jews having a hand in it. Hitler.
Ibrahim holds other repellent views as well. As a mob was attacking the United States embassy in Cairo on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11, pulling down the American flag and raising the flag of Al Qaeda, Ibrahim wrote on twitter: Today is the anniversary of 9/11. May every year come with America burning. Possibly fearing the consequences of her tweet, she deleted it a couple of hours later, but not before a screen shot was saved by an Egyptian activist.
Just today, apparently after having warned that her vicious tweets might cause her trouble during her visit to the U.S., she has written on twitter: My account has been previously stolen and any tweet on racism and hatred is not me. However, in the past she never made any mention of her account being stolen. The record of her anti-Semitic tweets is still available online.
The decision to honor Ibrahim reflects poorly on the State Department, which is either incapable of doing the minimum amount of research required to find out who she is, or does not care that the secretary of state and First Lady are about to honor an anti-Semite who longs for violence against Americans. Its understandable that now with Islamists having come to the fore after all the hope that the Egyptian uprising inspired, American policymakers are looking for the good guys, real liberal activists that deserve U.S. support. Samira Ibrahim is not one of them.
She falls right in line with hillary and michelle both. No surprise here.
“In general, people fail to realize and accept that the current President and his girl are Third World by birth and experience. That means they will honor their own. In short, it depends upon ones perspective. Third World by and for Third World; that should not be too difficult to understand, even for a trivial vacuous Euroamerican of 2013 A.D.. “
They forgot door #3: They agree with her!
A Nobel Prize? Hell no!
A job in the President’s cabinet, nothing less.
The saddest part of this is, the precedent was set in the Bush White House, facilitated by Grover Norquist, the GOP Muslim lover/convert.

Lots of info on this thread!
Anti-Semites, no matter the political stripe, have to be booted, including Hagel, obama, Pat Buchanan, and any others you can document.
