Yesterday, I posted on Obama's latest act of savage theater: Obama and Swiftboat Kerry to Honor Vicious Jew-Hater and 9/11 Fan. The jawdropping award went viral, and today the Obama adminstration is "postponing it." They should be out and out cancelling it and apologizing to Americans and all freedom-loving civilized people across the world. Instead, they wuss out this way, but it is better than giving this savage an award.
Expect cries of "islamophobia" and "the Zionists are running the wooooorld!" from the usual suspects. I am glad that Obama reacted to the outrage by good and decent human beings.
Miami Herald: US postpones award for Egyptian woman over tweets By BRADLEY KLAPPER Associated Press
WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration is postponing an award for an Egyptian activist who rallied worldwide attention against forced "virginity tests" on female protesters because of anti-American and anti-Semitic comments discovered on her Twitter account.
The State Department announced earlier this week that Samira Ibrahim would be among 10 recipients of the International Women of Courage award presented by Secretary of State John Kerry and first lady Michelle Obama on Friday. But State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Friday the U.S. would hold off on awarding Ibrahim while officials investigate the tweets, which include support for attacks against U.S. diplomatic installations and praise for a terrorist assault against Israeli citizens in Bulgaria.
Ibrahim, who has already arrived in the U.S, says her account was hacked, though the comments stretch back several months. After five Israelis were killed in a bus explosion in July, she welcomed the "good news." In other posts, she declared Saudi Arabia's royal family "dirtier than Jews" and attributed all crimes against society to Jews and referenced Adolf Hitler.
