Dr. Pipes

I wanted to bring to your attention this saga about the Egyptian activist Samira Ibrahim who was supposed to receive a prize from our government for her stance against the virginity examination that she was subjected to because she was arrested in one of the anti-government demonstrations in Cairo

However, if one reads her tweets another Samira emerges who is an anti-semite, anti-Copts and anti-American and who is full of hate, ignornace and bigotry and here is what an Egyptian blogger wrote about this sordid character (see below) and when her little game was exposed she claimed that these hate tweets were not hers as her twitter' account was hacked

The real question is why did our representatives in Cairo not check the background of this liar and bigot before we tax payers have to pay for her travel to the US to receive this prize and when she was exposed by bloggers as a blatant liar and hate monger her name was withdrawn

Now the liar Ms Ibrahim is telling the world that it is the Jews that can be blamed because she loves everyone

What a liar

Samira Ibrahim and Twitter Saga

I waited all that time before I would speak about Samira Ibrahim and her twitter saga. I waited till she would return back to Egypt and tell her own version of the story. Tonight she appeared on ONTV's Manshet TV show to speak about what happened.
If you do not know what I am talking , I think this post from NYT's the Lede sums everything up.
Now after returning back to homeland, Samira Ibrahim said on TV that she made a mistake to accept this award without reading more about it and that the Zionist lobby and department of State wanted her to apology for her comments and speak well about Israel but she refused.
Samira poster form Getty Unfortunately Mr. Gaber El Armouty did not ask her about her tweets specifically about the 9/11 tweet or tweets about Jews before she would speak about Zionism to the end of that talk. He did not ask her whether her account was hacked or not and why she claimed that her account was hacked and that those tweets were not hers as she told the department of State and announced on her tweet.He did not ask her why she would accept an award from the States when she feels happy about 9/11.
It is not the first time Samira's tweets cause controversy. Several times we find shocking tweets from her account regarding Egypt and whenever anyone speaks about the matter some activists claim that she is not administrating this twitter account nor does she blog in her blog. Indeed sometimes I feel that someone else writes in her blog
Needless to say many people unfollowed her on twitter from several months ago due to her tweets.
Look Samira did a huge thing ; she stood for her rights against the most powerful institution in Egypt. We will not forget her role and the other girls from 9 March 2011's virginity tests to stop this disgusting procedure in Egypt.
Still unfortunately Samira is not a real political activist as some positioned her to be in the media. Samira is a very simple girl from Upper Egypt that found herself in the center of the world. She was the first Egyptian woman to be featured in the Time magazine 100 person of the year for God sake. Yet unfortunately some pushed her to play a role bigger in the media than she could handle. Activism comes with responsibility and respect as well honesty before other any other thing.
Samira is lured like many famous faces in the revolution by the media and attention sadly enough media lights burn people. I am afraid that she is not the first and will not be the last from the revolution faces that will face this.
You will be surprised about how both the Islamists and Pro-SCAF/Mubarak supporters were so happy for what happened to her back in Cairo. The Islamists do not like Samira Ibrahim anymore because she attacks them and President Morsi day and night. Of course the Pro-SCAF/Mubarak supporters used what happen to discredit her as a victim for the virginity tests in the first place.
It is not about her political views as much her contradicting behavior on how she accepts an award from a country she was celebrating its worst moments and how she claimed that her twitter account was hacked while it seems that it was not. It is about that tweet speaking about Egyptian Copts and then speaking about Zionist lobby. Yes the Right wingers in the States were angry so are the rest of the Americans who are offended by the 9/11 tweet and yes the Jewish lobby is angry too. No one can deny this.
Unfortunately Samira Ibrahim hurt herself , her image and her creditably with what happened or not and I am sorry to say those who surround her do not help her instead they are harming her a lot.
I know I will be attacked a lot but seriously I can not keep it anymore.
