John Kerry, Michelle Obama to honor Egyptian girl tainted by anti-Jewish tweets
First lady Michelle Obama and Secretary of State John F. Kerry are set to bestow Thursday an award of courage on a young Egyptian girl who exposed the country’s practice of subjecting females to virginity tests.
After a July 18 terrorist attack in Burgas that left five Israelis dead, Ynet reports, Ms. Ibrahim allegedly 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.” The tweet was first reported in the Weekly Standard, Ynet says.
Ynet also reports that in August, Ms. Ibrahim allegedly tweeted: “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.” Ms. Ibrahim also reportedly tweeted, on Sept. 11, 2012, “May every year come with America burning,” Ynet says, citing a Weekly Standard report.
Ms. Ibrahim says her Twitter account was hacked, and she denies writing the tweets, Ynet says. But the writer of the original Weekly Standard report — Samuel Tadros, a research fellow at the Hudson Institute Center for Religious Freedom — says she did not attribute the tweets to hackers until she was due to make the trip to Washington to receive her award, Ynet reports.
