JOHN KERRY AND MICHELLE OBAMA WERE SCHEDULED TO GIVE EGYPTIAN
SAMIRA ABRAHAM ONE OF 10 STATE DEPARTMENT AWARDS TO 'COURAGEOUS' WOMEN
UNTIL WORD LEAKED OUT THAT SHE WAS NOT A VERY NICE PERSON


The State Department has temporarily scrubbed her from any mention on their website and deferred granting her the award (it was supposed to be tomorrow) until they get more "facts".

It seems Ibrahim tweeted "anti-Zionist" statements including celebration of a terrorist bombing:

""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."

In another tweet, she described the leaders of Saudi Arabia as "dirtier than the Jews."

In a third tweet, she praised al Qaeda saying: "Today is the anniversary of 9/11. May every year come with America burning."

Nice, huh?

Of course at first she denied saying any of that, claiming her Twitter account was "hacked" but has now doubled down and admitted he statements.

reported Jeffrey Goldberg quoted her as saying in Arabic on her Twitter page:

"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."

Goldberg cited Samuel Tadros, at the Hudson Institute, and other Egyptian liberal activists for their exposing of this woman.

How does something like this happen ... or is it politically incorrect to actually ask what people stand for these days before giving them a seal of approval?

Had she "apologized" (you know what that means) would she have still been given theis award?

Now the question should be - who nominated this woman and what kind of background checks are done to weed out radicals like this? Or did it not really matter until the truth was exposed?

I know ... *crickets*!
