An Egyptian human rights activist has refused to apologize for anti-Zionist posts on the Internet which led the Obama administration to delay honoring her with an award
"I refused to apologize to the Zionist lobby in America on the previous statements hostile to Zionism under pressure from the American government, so the prize was withdrawn," Samira Ibrahim posted. Victoria Nuland, the State Department spokeswoman, had said that Ibrahim was on her way back to Egypt and would not participate in a State Department ceremony honoring nine other recipients of the International Women of Courage Award. Jewish power in America on display once again.
