Lee Smith reports that Samira Ibrahim, the Egyptian woman whose anti-American and antisemitic tweets have forced the State Department to defer granting her the International Woman of Courage Award -- an award Michelle Obama and John Kerry were scheduled to present to her on Friday -- now seems to admit that she was the author of the tweets in question. She previously claimed that her account was hacked.
...an American award presented annually by the United States Department of State to women around the world who have shown leadership, courage, resourcefulness and willingness to sacrifice for others, especially for better promotion of women's rights.
The rightwing Weekly Standard said Ibrahim, who is prolific on Twitter, had written in August: “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.”
She also allegedly wrote on September 11 “Today is the anniversary of 9/11. May every year come with America burning,” the Standard said.
Ibrahim has told the State Department that her account was hacked.

good to know.
Dont worry though, now the moors sell trinkets in Spain because their own country is a mess......they are still coming here They just come in hopes of a better life instead of conquest and sadly (for them) history betrays their chances of being accepted.
