Figures. Obama State Department to Honor Islamist Anti-Semite With ‘Courage Award’ (Video) …Update: Obama Administration Defers Award

What a shock.
The Obama State Department is going to honor Egyptian Islamist anti-Semite Samira Ibrahim as a “Woman of Courage.”

Apparently, in the age of Obama, posting anti-Semitic tweets and cheering the 9-11 Benghazi terrorists will win you a courage award.

Michelle Malkin was on FOX and Friends this morning to discuss this year’s Courage Award winner.

The Weekly Standard has the lowdown on Samira, an open anti-American Jew-hater.

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.”

UPDATE: The State Department deferred the award to Samira until they have time to investigate her record.
