Samira Ibrahim is one of those women subjected to the post-Mubarak Egyptian Army’s “virginity tests,” and objected to it. Tomorrow at the State Department in Washington, in the presence of the first lady, Miss Ibrahim will be presented by John Kerry with the United States government’s “Woman of Courage” Award. –Mark Steyn, NRO (1 page)
It’s nice to know that there are women in the Middle East standing up and demanding basic human rights, but before the highest levels of American government choose to honor these women, maybe they should check whether or not any of them say things like “Today is the anniversary of 9/11. May every year come with American burning” on Twitter. Just a thought.
