John Kerry to anti-Semites, fans of 9/11: “We ❤ you.”

March 7th, 2013 - 4:35 am

You can tell a lot about someone by looking at those he admires. Over at The Weekly Standard, Samuel Tadros has a melancholy piece about some of the people the Obama administration admires. Tomorrow, March 8, our new secretary of State, John Kerry, aided by First Lady Michelle Obama, will be honoring ten women with the “International Women of Courage Award,” an honor given to “women around the globe who have shown exceptional courage and leadership in advocating for women’s rights and empowerment, often at great personal risk.”

Gosh. “Women’s rights and empowerment.” We’re for that, right? (Right?) But look a little closer. “Five of these awards,” Mr. Tadros reports,

are being given to women from Muslim-majority countries, underscoring the unique plight of women in those countries. The only problem is that one of the women to be recognized is an anti-Semite and supports the 9/11 attacks on the United States.

Gosh redux. Here we have Samira Ibrahim, whom the State Department’s profile commends for having been “among seven women subjected by the Egyptian military to forced virginity tests in March 2011″ — it’s a sort of distinction — and for having been “arrested while in high school for writing a paper that criticized Arab leaders’ insincere support to the Palestinian cause.”

But when Ms. Ibrahim is not having forced virginity tests or deploring insincere support for the “Palestinian cause,” she finds time to espouse ideas that have nothing to do with women’s “rights and empowerment” and a lot to do with anti-Semitism and pro-terrorist sentiments. Take a look her Twitter postings. Mr. Tadros quotes a post from last July: After five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver were killed in a suicide bombing attack, Ibrahim rejoiced:  “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.” How’s that for “women’s rights and empowerment”?

In the Dem Party, identity trumps principle. It is simply assumed a person of color, AND a woman AND a Muslim (subject to Islamophobia don't you know), are incapable of racism or bigotry. So, why research? It's a done argument, and why liberals are depraved. The anti-racist, racists show their stupid heads again. What a shock that liberals say race and gender convey nothing with their lips and with their actions confirm that is indeed what they believe.

Did Michele Obama show any signs of disagreement during all those dinners with Rashid Khalidi? (we would never know if the LA Times found out, they would kidnap the story and hold it hostage)

And, does John Kerry have any serious disagreement with opposing America against an enemy in a war? Or would he meet with that enemy and act as their voice?

It seems to me that Kerry and Michele are the Captain and Tennille lead singing Mus-rat love.

"So why are Michelle Obama and John Kerry honoring this woman? "

They envy her liberty to say what they think.

Don't worry everyone, Miss Ibrahim has a perfectly good explanation for all of the anti Semitic and anti American tweets. Her twitter account was hacked. A bunch of times. And she never noticed the offending tweets until they were pointed out to her The State Department is "looking into" the hacking story, but she's not going to receive her Award.
So you can all stop worrying about this. The State Department has us covered.

NEWS FLASH - Fox just reported that WH is "reconsidering" this award. Falling poll numbers do a lot towards setting things right.

Disgusting.

And the opposite side of the disgusting Ms. Ibraham is Michelle's and Genghis John's pathological need for the spotlight.
