US Reverses Decision to Honour Egyptian Woman After Antisemitic Tweets Revealed

FSWC Reports:


The Obama administration is postponing an award for an Egyptian activist who was subjected to a "virginity test" after protesting in Cairo's Tahrir Square.

The State Department had said Samira Ibrahim would be among recipients of an International Women of Courage award presented by Secretary of State John Kerry and first lady Michelle Obama on Friday. Now the State Department says she won't be honored Friday because of anti-American and anti-Semitic comments on her Twitter account.
