State Dept Almost Awards Devout Anti-Semite; 9/11 Fan

The International Women of Courage Award. Chalk that off as a must have in today's society. The State Department had planned to give five of these awards out last Friday, until one of the recipients was revealed to have similar thoughts to President Obama: she's a devout anti-Semite. Samira Ibrahim had extra curricular activities unknown to the State Department, such as being a huge supporter of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and a pretty adamant anti-Semite. Once her beliefs were revealed, the award was nixed.
From the Weekly Standard:
Samira Ibrahim, as the State Department’s 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.
Ibrahim tried to pull an Anthony Weiner by claiming her Twitter account was hacked. Hilarious. The State Department should be ashamed of themselves, especially following their disaster in Benghazi just six months ago. This is an embarrassment for America, but the government doesn't seem to care very much.
The bigger question is whether or not the State Department knew of Ibrahim's anti-Semitic and anti-American views? President Barack Hussein Obama has a hate-on for Israel; he grew up surrounded by anti-Semites and still surrounds himself with them (yes, even the Democratic Party).
All we know is that there was zero due diligence performed and it was a major fuck up. The State Department shows exactly how pathetic the Obama administration is at managing details.
