Michelle Obama and John Kerry won’t be honoring that anti-Semitic 9/11 fan after all

Yet another reason to like Twitter: It helps expose anti-American Jew-haters.

An Egyptian woman named Samira Ibrahim was scheduled to be honored as one of the ten “International Women of Courage” today. But then the Weekly Standard discovered that her Twitter feed was full of anti-Semitism and hatred of America. She was particularly fond of quoting Hitler and really got a kick out of 9/11.

Ibrahim’s initial response to being discovered was to claim she’d been hacked. But that was a lie. At first the State Department said they believed her, because they stink. But that didn’t work, so they announced that they’re going to “defer” giving her the award. Yeah, that might be a good idea.

Not only that, but now they’ve completely scrubbed any mention of Ibrahim from their site. Airbrushed her right out. “Ten” becomes “nine.” Like none of this ever happened. (I know a little bit about that. So do the Benghazi survivors.)

And Ibrahim’s response to this?

According to the Weekly Standard, this says: “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.”

Any questions? Besides the obvious one: Who was supposed to vet these women, and why hasn’t he or she been fired? Just kidding, the State Department will never tell us that. They don’t have to. Because shut up.

Update: Go, Ace, go!
