"60 Minutes" correspondent Lara Logan was repeatedly sexually assaulted by thugs yelling, "Jew! Jew!" as she covered the chaotic fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo's main square Friday, CBS and sources said yesterday.

This horrible story gets worse and worse. Worse still, CBS tried to keep the whole thing quiet and was forced to get in front of the story only when it became widely known that other media outlets were on to it. Who are they covering for?

And why? Because the false narrative the media is painting of what is going on in Egypt is patently false, and this brutal sex attack points to something else entirely.

The NY Post is the only news outlet reporting that the Muslims raping her were shouting "Jew, Jew, Jew." Obama should make a statement addressing this horror and condemning the vile Islamic anti-semitism at the heart of Islam.

Lara Logan set upon by mob in brutal sex attack NY Post (hat tip Pamela Hall)

"60 Minutes" correspondent Lara Logan was repeatedly sexually assaulted by thugs yelling, "Jew! Jew!" as she covered the chaotic fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo's main square Friday, CBS and sources said yesterday.

The TV crew with Logan, who is also the network's chief foreign correspondent, had its cameras rolling moments before she was dragged off — and caught her on tape looking tense and trying to head away from a crowd of men behind her in Tahrir Square.

"Logan was covering the jubilation . . . when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration," CBS said in a statement. "It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into a frenzy.

"In the crush of the mob, [Logan] was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers.

"She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning," the network added. "She is currently in the hospital recovering."

A network source told The Post that her attackers were screaming, "Jew! Jew!" during the assault. And the day before, Logan had told Esquire.com that Egyptian soldiers hassling her and her crew had accused them of "being Israeli spies." Logan is not Jewish.

In Friday's attack, she was separated from her colleagues and attacked for between 20 to 30 minutes, The Wall Street Journal said.

Her injuries were described to The Post as "serious."

CBS went public with the incident only after it became clear that other media outlets were on to it, sources said.

"A call came in from The [Associated Press]" seeking information, a TV-industry source told The Post. "They knew she had been attacked, and they had details. CBS decided to get in front of the story."

Most network higher-ups didn't even know how brutal the sexual assault was until a few minutes before the statement went out.

"We were surprised it stayed quiet" as long as it did, one source said.

Another source insisted that Logan was "involved in the process" of deciding whether to make her attack public, and ultimately understood why the statement had to be released.

The horrific incident came a week after the 39-year-old reporter was temporarily detained by Egyptian police amid tensions over foreign coverage of the country's growing revolution.

As part of the anti-media backlash, CNN's Anderson Cooper had also been roughed up, and ABC correspondent Brian Hartman had been threatened with beheading.

"[Logan] was not in the country for long — she'd been thrown out, if you remember — and had just gone back in," one source said.

"She had security with her, but it wasn't enough."

Before the attack, Logan — who is based in Washington, where she lives with her 2-year-old daughter and husband — had been set to return to the States sometime over the weekend to tape a "60 Minutes" segment on Wael Ghonim.

Ghonim, Google's head of marketing in the Middle East, had been briefly kidnapped after helping to organize protesters.

But after she was assaulted, Logan went back to her hotel, and within two hours — sometime late Friday and into early Saturday — was flown out of Cairo on a chartered network jet, sources said.

She wasn't taken to a hospital in Egypt because the network didn't trust local security there, sources said.

And neither CBS nor Logan reported the crime to Egyptian authorities because they felt they couldn't trust them, either, the sources said. "The way things are there now, they would have ended up arresting her again," one source said.

UPDATE: Four days before the brutal attack, Logan spoke to Charlie Rose —

Just 4 days before, the brave journalist discussed her previous detention in the country on "Charlie Rose", in an eerie interview she discusses the "terror" of being in the country and pain she put her family through, but vowed she would return because covering the story was "in her blood".

UPDATE? Logan to return to work:

Nothing will keep Lara Logan from doing her job.

The CBS war correspondent who is back home with her kids and recovering after being brutally attacked last week in Egypt has vowed to return to work "within weeks."

Logan, 39, has been candidly discussing what happened to her last Friday in Tahir Square after a mob attacked her in the hours after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak resigned following weeks of political unrest.

"She is going to be OK," a friend told TMZ.com.

  • Welcome to the World of Islam and How It Treats Women, and in the broader sense, How Islam Treats Anything Non-Muslim.
    So, whaddya think now, Lara?
    Can’t wait to hear your first report after your recovery when you as a dyed-in-the-wool liberal call for understanding of your Muslim rapists and how it’s all the fault of the West and Bush.
    Certainly unfortunate for you Lara, but what’s it going to take for Americans to learn the true nature of Islam. This Logan event is a micro event. 9/11 was a huge macro event, and still Americans do not believe that Islam is inherently evil. I fear that more 9/11 events or 7/7 events are going to be needed to teach the West that Islam is wholly incompatible with civilized society.

    This is how the ‘religion of peace’ honors women.
    It should be noted that she was viewed as “uncovered meat” so she bears most of the responsiblility.

  • sDee

    I guess I do not know if Logan was on to the evil that hides in the happy face that the elitists paint on Islam. But reading her background, it seems like she would. Logan is a tough, smart courageous woman. Neither the spineless quisling media she works for, nor the subhuman cretins she was reporting on, deserve to stand in her shadow.
    Sadly, the vast majority of Americans fooled by the deception of our liberal press will never put 2 and 2 together here.
    Her bosses should have had armed gaurds with her but they probably thought it was rainbows and unicorns too.
    Get a carry permit and learn how to use it. It’s coming.

  • Trying to prove their masculinity…in vain! Just like their prophet, who used to complain to his allah about his sexual impotence.

  • Some of the comments regarding the attack on Lara Logan here and other sites I am finding quite insensitive and reprehensible no matter what your political affiliation is.
    Yes of course we recognize how women are treated in Islamic countries but to treat this as some kind of teachable moment for Lara Logan is disgusting.
    Anyone who commenst with that way of thinking should be ashamed of themselves.

    “rainbows and unicorns” THE LIBERAL OBOWMAO MANTRA….weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    to all journalist and left wing news channel.
    This way how Islam treats journalist in Islamic world.wait for your turn

  • tammy

    Sickening. Just sickening.
    Islam is not a religion.
    It is an evil cult of destruction, hate and violence.
    I hope she recovers because her body may heal, but the terror of her rape may stay with her forever.
    I pray for Lara and her family.

  • sDee

    yes. I suggest we focus our anger and resolve on the root cause of this which, in this case, is festers in its own nest – the deceptive leftist media.

  • Bohemond1096

    Arrested, kidnapped and tortured by the Egyptian army, accused by them of being Israeli spies then seperated from her bodyguards and raped by a crowd yelling “Jew “? How did the crowd know she was a Jew? Come on, people, connect the dots. It was Egyptian soldiers in civilian clothes raping her. Of course a muslim president won’t condemn this and risk bad PR for a muslin country.

    So how does the left deal with the meme revealed as false? Attack the victim of course:
    http://dailycaller.com/2011/02/15/nir-rosen-trashes-lara-logan-dismisses-her-sexual-assault/
    “Left-wing journalist Nir Rosen joked today about the sexual assault of CBS News’ chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan. Logan was assaulted on Friday during celebrations in Cairo that followed Hosni Mubarak’s resignation.
    The initial tweet by Rosen stated, “Lara Logan had to outdo Anderson. Where was her buddy McCrystal.” From this tweet he went further, writing that he would have been amused if Anderson Cooper had also been sexually assaulted.
    “Yes yes its wrong what happened to her. Of course. I don’t support that. But, it would have been funny if it happened to Anderson too,” wrote Rosen.”
    Another woman (and a gay) thrown under the left-wing bus.

  • I’d chip in to buy slimeball Nir Rosen a ticket to Tahrir Square and a Magen David to wear.

  • Lindsey Blank

    This is terrible. Thank you for reporting. Assuming Ms. Logan wants to go public with the story, there is no reason to keep it secret. Anti-Semitism is certainly a problem in Cairo and throughout much of the Middle East, however, I would caution against making blanket accusations (“vile Islamic anti-semitism at the heart of Islam”) and blaming a whole religion for the horrendous, violent actions of a few. Islamophobia is not the way to answer anti-Semitism. Keep in mind that it was another group of Cairenes who came to Ms. Logan’s rescue.

  • Islam is a peaceful religion. These were just a few zealots, just a small minority perverting Islam who attacked her. Come on. Islam is love. You saw the article, it was just a couple of hundred men who got whipped into a frenzy by the mob. It wasn’t their fault. Islam is love. Obama tells us so.

  • central european

    woman as a war correspondent, i think it’s stupid idea… this may be a common ending of sutch stupidity

  • The premeditated rape and brutalization of Ms. Logan as manifested by these Muslim bastards was pure terrorism endorsed and sanctioned by Islamic core teachings and doctrine. It was not just an isolated attack on Ms. Logan, it was a terrorist attack intended to send and instill a message of fear to all Kafir women in order to demonstrate Islamic control, dominance, and total subjugation. Muhammad’s favorite sex slave was a white woman, and since Muslim men choose to emulate Muhammad in his words and deeds, Ms. Logan was unfortunately, in their twisted and sick way of thinking, the logical “target of opportunity.” I’m sure these sick bastards are still slapping each other on the back and congratulating each other for a “job well done.” Muslims, by their very ideological nature, are emotionally and mentally sick people who have chosen to believe in a perverse and psychologically bankrupt totalitarian ideology of hatred, racism, bigotry, terrorism, rape, brutality, slavery, domination, subjugation, and eventually the murder of all Kafirs who are unwilling to either convert or submit under the dhimmi status. Islam is not a legitimate religion as the rest of us know it; rather, it is a “cult of personality” based on the false prophet Muhammed and his fabricated tribal moon god, allah. My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to Ms. Logan and her family. As to the Muslim bastards who did this to her, they should be hunted down like the criminals that they are…plain and simple.

  • Janet

    After about a half an hour, Lindsey.
    They came to her rescue after a half an hour of being publically gang-raped while shouting “Jew, Jew, Jew!”.

  • Voice of Reason

    That’s like saying Christianity is an evil religion because of the Crusades, or because of Westboro Baptist, or because the horrors in Abu Ghraib were perpetrated by or given orders from people who were probably Christian. I can say “probably” here because you don’t know the people who assaulted her were Muslim any more than we know those responsible for Abu Ghraib were Christian…
    Let’s also not forget that she was saved by a group of women and 20 soldiers who were probably Muslim. Come on. You can’t ignore that while still saying those who assaulted her were Muslim.

  • tfb

    LOL Lindsey you have some balls coming HERE with that tripe.

  • tfb

    They must want this journalist to report on this domination and supremacism and abuse, to forward the jihad.

  • Absolutely horrible. Anybody that claims she deserves it because of her political beleifs should be ashamed of themselves. I pray she’ll recover fine.

  • Ditto. The attackers didn’t care what her political opinios were.

  • Janet

    I smell a rat.
    Obama won’t speak up in support of the People of Iran, spontaniously demonstrating against a fanatical, Islamic, totalitarian government that requires school children to yell “Death to America” every morning.
    Yet calls on an ALLIED government in Egypt to step down in favor of the Moslem Brotherhood, the souce of all Arab terrorist organizations, including al-Qaida that the US itself is fighting in Afghanistan and NY. And the State Dept. and it’s media propagandist agents try to fool us into thinking the M.B. is SECULAR, wanting democracy yet?!!! The powerful Moslem Brotherhood wants to replace Mubarak’s government with Sharia Law. It wants democracy for 1 DAY in order to be voted in for life. Then, God-help anyone who questions “the will of the people and Allah’s choosen”.
    And the US media says this is a spontaneous revolt of “the downtrodden, Egyptian people”, who only want democracy and an end to human rights abuses. Yet, it wants to hide from YOU, that one of its own was GANG-Raped, in public – by “the People” – in front of “the People” – for half an hour – by “secular” “democratic” “human-rights” rapists shouting “Jew, Jew, Jew” all during the rape.
    The reports I got from MSM were that journalists only felt “threatened” or were “roughed up”. RAPE is not “roughed up”. Human-rights adorers don’t gang-rape. “Secular” folks don’t shout “Jew, Jew, Jew”, or want Sharia Law, or belong to the Moslem Brotherhood Terror Organization!
    Right, Atlas, who (what) ARE the media covering for?? Who/what is Obama working for?? Why are we buying it???

  • JOSEPH MCNULTY

    You do not understand the place of women in Islam. The Qur’an describes women as men’s “tillage,” like a plowed field, designed to be used as needed by men. The court testimony of a woman is worth less than that of a man. Women must provide husbands with sex on demane. Wife beating is permitted as long at it is done for chastisemenet, not injury. Women who report rape are often prosecuted as self-admitted adulters or fornicators. Logan was seen as a mere women and as as Western woman, uncovered, independent, and in charge of the men — MEN! — on her film crew, and as a “Western whore,” an infidel woman provided for the use and pleasure of the men, “tillage.”. The crowds in Egypt were unusual in that they were almost entirely men. Most of the few women present were in hijab, covered, showing their natural submission to men. She was attacked in order to express male dominance in Islamic society and as a demonstration of their contempt of infidel Westerm women. This is the true face of Islam, and CBS and the media will do all in their power to obscure it. Already, I have heard commentators comparing this to an unintentional “act of God,” like a lightning bolt. I have even heard speculation that she was attacked by Mubarak’s “goons” since the attack does not fit with the narrative of “peaceful, democratic protestors,” the Egyptian branch of the Good Government League. Logan must go along with this, or her career at CBS is over. Perhaps she will look at it as “karma” since she grew up as a “privileged White South African” under apartheid. If she maks any comment about to role of Islam in the attack, she is finished at CBS. Then, she has to wonder: would even FOX hire such an islamophobe?

  • 1st. Thank you very, very much Ms. Geller for your indefatigable work to expose the threats Islam poses not only to the US, but the world. You, along with Spencerman, are amazing. Now, a ‘public service announcement’ to help deprogram some clueless readers:
    Who are we to judge?
    If we cannot judge, how is it possible to distinguish good from evil, right from wrong?

    Multiculturalists and moral relativists assert, that all cultures, societies, and religions are equal, i.e., none morally superior or morally inferior than others.
    If they truly believe this, then it is impossible to blame the gang rapists for their acts as it is indeed part of their religion, as referenced by the Koran, confirmed by the Hadiths, and considered acceptable/commendable as the Islamic prophet Mohammed did the exact same things.
    We can no more blame the attackers for their acts due to cultural or societal influences, or religions, than we can condemn them based on the color of the socks they wore that day.
    The problem with modern PC multiculturalism is they fail to consider that there IS black and white, right and wrong.
    1. Is there any behavior that is always morally wrong?
    2. If no, then all behavior is sometimes morally right.
    It is therefore only reasonable and logical to conclude that indeed, some cultures, societies, and religions are morally superior to others, while others are morally inferior to others.
    Multiculturalism that promotes and tolerates evil, and moral relativism should be considered illnesses.

    Have you seen how insensitive the LEFT are to her… check out the Liberal’s comments on the Youtube page (below) for the video in this article. These are the same people that tell us we need to give more in taxes to be compassionate to the poor. But the poor is an abstract… that doesn’t have a face to real people. The Left has NO compassion for actual people… only for abstract ideas.

  • Blanket accusations? Fact. Lest we not forget the universal Islamic death chant:Khaybar Khaybar ya Yahūd, jaysh Muḥammad saya‘ūd (خيبر خيبر يايهود جيش محمد سيعود) which translates to “Khaybar, Khaybar o Jews, the army of Muhammad will return” which means ‘Jews, remember Khyabar, the army of Mohammed is returning.’
    This cry relates to an event in the seventh century when Muslims massacred and expelled the Jews from the town of Khaybar, in modern-day Saudi Arabia.
    Understanding Islamic Antisemitism
    The Koran on the Jews
    “Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews…” (5:82).
    “Curses were pronounced on those among the Children of Israel who rejected Faith, by the tongue of David and of Jesus the son of Mary: because they disobeyed and persisted in excesses.” (5:78).
    “Is it ever so that when they make a covenant a party of them set it aside? The truth is, most of them believe not. And when there came to them a messenger from Allah [Muhammad], confirming what was with them [the Torah], a party of the people of the Book threw away the Book of Allah behind their backs, as if (it had been something) they did not know!” (2:100-101).
    “The People of the Book know well that that is the truth from their Lord. Nor is Allah unmindful of what they do” (2:143-144).
    “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (9:29).
    “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah. That is their saying with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved of old. Allah (Himself) fighteth against them. How perverse are they!” (9:30)
    The Jews killed their prophets (2:61; 2:87; 2:91; 3:21; 3:112; 3:181; 3:183; 4:155; 5:70), and boast “we killed the Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary” (4:157).
    “Allah hath heard the taunt of those who say: ‘Truly, Allah is indigent and we are rich!’ We shall certainly record their word and (their act) of slaying the prophets in defiance of right, and We shall say: ‘Taste ye the penalty of the Scorching Fire!’” (3:181)
    “Why do not the rabbis and the doctors of Law forbid them from their (habit of) uttering sinful words and eating things forbidden? Evil indeed are their works.” (5:63)
    “The Jews say: ‘Allah’s hand is tied up.’ Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy) they utter. Nay, both His hands are widely outstretched: He giveth and spendeth (of His bounty) as He pleaseth. But the revelation that cometh to thee from Allah increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. Amongst them we have placed enmity and hatred till the Day of Judgment. Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah doth extinguish it; but they (ever) strive to do mischief on earth. And Allah loveth not those who do mischief” (5:64).
    The Jews “strive to do mischief on earth” – that is, fasaad, for which the punishment is specified in 5:33: “they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land.”
    “Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in Allah. If only the People of the Book had faith, it were best for them: among them are some who have faith, but most of them are perverted transgressors. They will do you no harm, barring a trifling annoyance; if they come out to fight you, they will show you their backs, and no help shall they get. Shame is pitched over them (like a tent) wherever they are found, except when under a covenant (of protection) from Allah and from men; they draw on themselves wrath from Allah, and pitched over them is (the tent of) destitution. This because they rejected the Signs of Allah, and slew the prophets in defiance of right; this because they rebelled and transgressed beyond bounds.” (3:110-112)
    “And because of their breaking their covenant, We have cursed them and made hard their hearts. They change words from their context and forget a part of that whereof they were admonished. Thou wilt not cease to discover treachery from all save a few of them. But bear with them and pardon them. Lo! Allah loveth the kindly (5:13).
    “Among the People of the Book are some who, if entrusted with a hoard of gold, will (readily) pay it back; others, who, if entrusted with a single silver coin, will not repay it unless thou constantly stoodest demanding, because, they say, ‘there is no call on us (to keep faith) with these ignorant (Pagans).’ but they tell a lie against Allah, and (well) they know it.” (3:75)
    “O Messenger! let not those grieve thee, who race each other into unbelief: (whether it be) among those who say ‘We believe’ with their lips but whose hearts have no faith; or it be among the Jews — men who will listen to any lie — will listen even to others who have never so much as come to thee. They change the words from their (right) times and places: they say, ‘If ye are given this, take it, but if not, beware!’ If any one’s trial is intended by Allah, thou hast no authority in the least for him against Allah. For such – it is not Allah’s will to purify their hearts. For them there is disgrace in this world, and in the Hereafter a heavy punishment.” (5:41)
    “There is a party of them who distort the Scripture with their tongues, that ye may think that what they say is from the Scripture, when it is not from the Scripture. And they say: It is from Allah, when it is not from Allah; and they speak a lie concerning Allah knowingly” (3:78).
    “Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say: ‘This is from Allah,’ to traffic with it for miserable price! Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby.” (2:79)
    “But because of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard; they change the words from their (right) places and forget a good part of the message that was sent them, nor wilt thou cease to find them- barring a few – ever bent on (new) deceits: but forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds): for Allah loveth those who are kind.” (5:13)
    “Many of the People of the Scripture long to make you disbelievers after your belief, through envy on their own account, after the truth hath become manifest unto them’” (2:109).
    “And when there comes to them a Book from Allah, confirming what is with them, although from of old they had prayed for victory against those without Faith, when there comes to them that which they (should) have recognised, they refuse to believe in it but the curse of Allah is on those without Faith. “ (2:89)
    “For the iniquity of the Jews We made unlawful for them certain (foods) good and wholesome which had been lawful for them; in that they hindered many from Allah’s Way; that they took usury, though they were forbidden; and that they devoured men’s substance wrongfully; we have prepared for those among them who reject faith a grievous punishment.” (4:160-161)
    “Thou wilt indeed find them, of all people, most greedy of life,-even more than the idolaters: Each one of them wishes He could be given a life of a thousand years: But the grant of such life will not save him from (due) punishment. For Allah sees well all that they do.” (2:96)
    From Robert Spencer’s book, “The Religion of Peace”:
    The Koran puts forward a clear, consistent image of the Jews: they are scheming, treacherous liars and the most dangerous enemies of the Muslims. This theological tenet provides a basis for Islam’s deeply-rooted anti-Semitism. Regardless of the actions of Jewish individuals today, and regardless of what policies the State of Israel follows, the Koran justifies an unrelenting form of anti-Semitism that will be extremely difficult to root out from the Muslim world.
    And this is by no means confined to an “extremist” fringe. The Koranic impulse toward anti-Semitism is evident in the attacks on Jews emanating from Islamic preachers and scholars worldwide. Take, for example, “Jews as Depicted in the Qur’an,” an article posted in 2004 on the website Islam Online. The website’s founders include the prominent Islamic theologian Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who is hailed as a moderate reformist by Western Islamic apologistsThe article, written by Sheikh ‘Atiyyah Saqr, formerly of Al-Azhar University, copiously cites the Koran in depicting the Jews as a gang of corrupt, deceitful cut-throats.
    The Jews, he says, “used to fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah.” Supporting this, he quotes the verse condemning Jews for claiming Allah’s hand was fettered (5:64) and another asserting that some People of the Book say “we have no duty to the Gentiles” and in doing so, “speak a lie concerning Allah knowingly” (3:75). He adds a third verse in which some Jews, asked for money, scoff that “Allah, forsooth, is poor, and we are rich!” (3:181)
    The Jews, continues Saqr, “love to listen to lies.” This is essentially a straight rendering of the Koran’s claim that the Jews are “men who will listen to any lie” (5:41). They also spread them: “There is a party of them who distort the Scripture with their tongues, that ye may think that what they say is from the Scripture, when it is not from the Scripture. And they say: It is from Allah, when it is not from Allah; and they speak a lie concerning Allah knowingly” (3:78). They dare to distort “Divine Revelation and Allah’s Sacred Books. Allah says in this regard: ‘Therefore woe be unto those who write the Scripture with their hands and then say, ‘This is from Allah,’ that they may purchase a small gain therewith. Woe unto them for that their hands have written, and woe unto them for that they earn thereby’” (2:79).
    Saqr also notes that in the Koran Allah says the Jews have broken “their covenant,” and consequently he has “cursed them and made hard their hearts” (5:13). Indeed, says Saqr, “they never keep their promises or fulfill their words” – to demonstrate this, he quotes this Koranic passage: “Is it ever so that when ye make a covenant a party of you set it aside? The truth is, most of them believe not.” (2:100).
    The Jews also refuse to believe in the prophets Allah has sent them, even Moses, telling him: “O Moses! We will not believe in thee till we see Allah plainly” (2:55). They are hypocrites (2:14; 2:44) who “grow arrogant” before the messengers of Allah, refusing to believe in some and killing others (2:87). They are so arrogant and haughty that they “claimed to be the sons and of Allah and His beloved ones” – a fault they share with the Christians: “The Jews and Christians say: We are sons of Allah and His loved ones” (5:18).
    All that represents damage the Jews do to their own souls, but Saqr — and the Koran itself – doesn’t stop there. The Jews also wish “evil for people” and try to “mislead” them. “This is clear,” says Saqr, “in the verse that reads: ‘Many of the People of the Scripture long to make you disbelievers after your belief, through envy on their own account, after the truth hath become manifest unto them’” (2:109). They “feel pain to see others in happiness and are gleeful when others are afflicted with a calamity,” as is demonstrated, according to Saqr, by this verse: “If a lucky chance befall you, it is evil unto them, and if disaster strike you they rejoice thereat” (3:120). The Koran, Saqr points out, accuses them of “taking usury when they were forbidden it, and of their devouring people’s wealth by false pretences” (4:161).
    Even worse, “it is easy for them to slay people and kill innocents,” for “nothing in the world is dear to their hearts than shedding blood and murdering human beings.” Saqr grounds this on the Koran’s assertion that the Jews “slew the prophets wrongfully” (2:61). The Jews are characterized, says Saqr, by “cowardice. . . . To this, the Qur’an refers when saying: ‘Ye are more awful as a fear in their bosoms than Allah. That is because they are a folk who understand not. They will not fight against you in a body save in fortified villages or from behind walls” (59:14). Saqr also excoriates the Jews for their “love for this worldly life” – as does the Koran: “And thou wilt find them greediest of mankind for life and (greedier) than the idolaters” (2:96).
    Saqr concludes on an optimistic note, voicing hopes that some day Muslims will be able to mete out punishment to their enemies; “Almighty Allah told us that He’d send to them people who’d pour on them rain of severe punishment that would last till the Day of Resurrection. All this gives us glad tidings of the coming victory of Muslims over them once Muslims stick to strong faith and belief in Allah and adopt the modern means of technology.”
    One should consider Saqr’s interpretation in light of Iran’s feverish attempts to acquire a nuclear bomb, alongside the repeated vows by Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to wipe Israel off the map. For Ahmadinejad and his ilk, eliminating the Jewish state is not just a foreign policy goal; it is a religious imperative.
    Jewish apes and pigs
    Oddly, Saqr is silent about the famous Koranic passages in which Allah transforms disobedient Jews into apes and pigs (2:63-66; 5:59-60; 7:166). The practice of calling the Jews of today “apes and pigs” has become a staple of jihadist discourse. Although Saudi authorities promised after 9/11 to revise textbooks that taught hatred against Jews and Christians, as late as 2006 Saudi texts still referred to Jews as “apes” and Christians as “swine.”
    And in April 2008 a British employment tribunal awarded 70,000 pounds to a teacher who had been fired from a Saudi-funded Islamic school for exposing the fact that the school used textbooks that spoke of “the repugnant characteristics of the Jews” and asserted: “Those whom God has cursed and with whom he is angry, he has turned into monkeys and pigs. They worship Satan.”
    In March 2004 Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris, speaking on official Palestinian Authority television, railed against “the Jews today taking revenge for their grandfathers and ancestors, the sons of apes and pigs.”
    And during the swine flu scare in May 2009, Sheikh Ahmad ‘Ali ‘Othman, the superintendent of da’wa [Islamic proselytizing] affairs at the Egyptian Ministry of Religious Endowments, declared, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute, that “all pigs are descended from the Jews whom Allah transformed into apes, swine and worshippers of Satan, and must therefore be slaughtered.” Othman based his argument on Koran 5:60, one of the notorious “apes and pigs” passages of the Koran.
    An Egyptian imam, Muhammad Hussein Ya’qoub, in January 2009 delivered a televised sermon in which he insisted that Muslim hatred of Jews had nothing to do with Israel, and everything to do with the Koran: “If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start loving them? Of course not. We will never love them. Absolutely not. The Jews are infidels – not because I say so, and not because they are killing Muslims, but because Allah said: ‘The Jews say that Uzair is the son of Allah, and the Christians say that Christ is the son of Allah. These are the words from their mouths. They imitate the sayings of the disbelievers before. May Allah fight them. How deluded they are.’ [9:30]
    It is Allah who said that they are infidels.” He also quoted Koran 5:82, the verse that says that the Jews are the Muslims’ worst enemies. His peroration: “As for you Jews – the curse of Allah upon you. The curse of Allah upon you, whose ancestors were apes and pigs…. Allah, we pray that you transform them again, and make the Muslims rejoice again in seeing them as apes and pigs. You pigs of the earth! You pigs of the earth! You kill the Muslims with that cold pig [blood] of yours.”
    Saqr, for his part, asserted that because Jews “revolted against the Divine ordinances … they found no warm reception in all countries where they tried to reside. Rather, they would either be driven out or live in isolation.” Moreover, “Almighty Allah told us that He’d send to them people who’d pour on them rain of severe punishment that would last till the Day of Resurrection.”
    Those people would be, by Saqr’s own account and that of other Islamic clerics, the Muslims.

    ———————————————————————————————–
    And from the world’s leading scholar of Islamic antisemitism, Bat Ye’or:
    Society was sharply divided along ethnic and religious lines, with the Arab tribes at the top of the hierarchy, followed by the Berbers who were never recognized as equals, despite their Islamization. Lower on the ladder came the mullawadun and, at the very bottom, the dhimmi Christians and Jews. — Bat Ye’or, Eurabia: The Euro-Arab Axis. Teaneck, Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2005, page 166
    As the dhimmis were forbidden to possess arms, they became totally dependent on the occupying power. In certain rural areas, the servile character of the dhimmi’s condition worsened with the passage of time. In 1884 Charles de Foucauld described areas in southern Morocco where the Jews and their families belonged body and soul to their Muslim master and were unable to leave him. Here the condition of serfdom was determined by religion and was passed on from generation to generation: these people were part of the master’s inheritance in exactly the same way as his lands and livestock. As late as 1913, the Jews of Dadès in the Greater Atlas of Morocco were serfs, the property of their Muslim master. — Bat Ye’or, The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians Under Islam. Teaneck, Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 1985, pages 52-53
    It is reported that, in 1033, between five and six thousand Jews were massacred in Fez, and in 1066 about three thousand in Granada. In Yemen the Jews were forced to choose between death and conversion in 1165 and 1678. The Almohad persecutions (1130-1212) in the Maghreb and in Muslim Spain put an end to what remained of the Christian population of North Africa. The Jews, who had been forced to accept Islam, formed a mass of “new converts” who practiced their former religion in secret. The Almohad inquisitors, doubting their sincerity, took away their children and raised them as Muslims. A similar law also existed in Yemen, where every Jewish orphan child had to be converted to Islam. Abrogated by the Turks during their brief occupation of the country after 1872, it was reintroduced by the Imam Yahya in 1922 and confirmed again in 1925….Records concerning Morocco, Algeria and Yemen reveal that during changes of reign and times of instability, the Jewish quarters were regularly pillaged, some of the menfolk massacred, and many women abducted and held for ransom by the soldiery or by tribes from the surrounding regions. Eyewitnesses have described the destruction of the Jewish quarter at Fez in 1912 at the beginning of the French protectorate, and at Sana’a in Yemen as late as 1948, after the assassination of the Imam Yahya. Such ordeals, over the centuries, resulted in many conversions to Islam. Thus a number of Judeo-Berber tribes of the Atlas, and Muslim families in Fez, are known to be descended from Jews who accepted Islam to save their lives in 1165, 1275, 1465, and 1790-92. There are Muslims in Tripolitania and elsewhere who are the descendants of Jews forcibly converted at different periods. The Jews of Tabriz were obliged to convert in 1291 and 1318, and those of Baghdad in 1333 and 1344. — Bat Ye’or, The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians Under Islam. Teaneck, Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 1985, page 61
    A brief survey will illustrate the traditional condition of dhimmitude in Persia at this period. In 1866, the head of the Hamadan Jewish community was imprisoned, put in chains, and threatened with death. The same year in Balforuch (a province of Hamadan), the disappearance of a young Muslim provoked the forced Islamization of Jews: eighteen were killed and two burned alive. In Hamadan in 1875, a fanatic mullah preached the slaughter of the Jews; one of them, accused of blasphemy, was burned alive by the mob. In Teheran on 16 May 1877, the Jewish quarter was invaded and its inhabitants attacked, while a mullah published a fatwa forcing Jews to wear a distinctive badge.
    In Isfahan in 1889 a ritual murder accusation unleashed several days of anti-Jewish violence and threats of extermination. On 10 August 1889 in the same town, Muslims accused Jewish pilgrims of throwing stones, of attacking a kadi, and of profaning a mosque with brandy. The mob immediately broke the hands and legs of some hundred pilgrims and injured all the others. Isfahan Jews were attacked in the streets the next day and had to hide in their homes; two who ventured out were killed. Their corpses were dragged through the streets and dumped in the Jewish quarter when night fell. On the morrow, some women were raped and the kadi signed a petition for the Jews to be exterminated. The shah’s son, Prince Zil-Sultan, hastened to protect the victims but the brutality continued. Two months later, on 5 October, a Muslim who had struck a Jew then accused him of the same offense; Jews were immediately beaten up and their quarter plundered. Only the arrival of Prince Zil-Sultan prevented a general massacre. This report also mentions efforts by “Christian priests,” Mirza Norollah in particular, to help the Jews, thereby saving a large number and constantly assisting them. — Bat Ye’or, Islam and Dhimmitude: Where Civilizations Collide, Teaneck, Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 2002, p. 125.

  • Pamela says: This horrible story gets worse and worse. Worse still, CBS tried to keep the whole thing quiet and was forced to get in front of the story only when it became widely known that other media outlets were on to it. Who are they covering for?
    And why? Because the false narrative the media is painting of what is going on in Egypt is patently false, and this brutal sex attack points to something else entirely.
    My reply:
    Which begs the question, why do these MSM outlets, which have absolutely no interest in reporting what is really going on, send their correspondents to Egypt in the first place? It is obviously not to find out what’s going on because they are whitewashing what is going on. If you’re going to be a pretend news outlet and lie about what’s going on, then why bother sending someone into a danger zone? You can lie just as well from New York as you can from Cairo. It must be to give some pretend credibility to your lies. So, basically, CBS sent this woman into an incredibly dangerous situation to give credibility to their lies.

  • Bozo

    Thanks for that posting, for being informative and giving perspective to a prejudice which runs through Arab lands even more intensely than it does elsewhere.
    However this was a mob scene which is taken over by mob emotions which are not based in whatever people scream, that is just the nearest channel in their crazed brains.

  • GUESS WHAT YOU ANTI-MUSLIM SCUM, who enjoy the victimization of women for your own benefits, Lara was not raped :
    According to a Wall Street Journal source, Logan, 39, who is mother to two young children, was not raped.
    According to different media sources, CBS Senior Reporter Lara Logan will be released from a hospital today.

    Please continue having your caregiver pat you some more on the back.
    You are so obviously still full of hot air, burpee.

  • I don’t even think these savages believed she was a Jew.
    For them “Jew” means all that is wrong in the world.
    It is an adjective to denounce someone deserving the most profound hatred and punishment.
    Kinda like saying F-ing bitch/whore and alike. As when using that term one doesn’t mean the person in question is a prostitute.

  • Thorium

    Well, what can I say, every “revolution” is also a rebellion, and mobs, anarchy and total chaos are the very essence of it. Deepest condolences to the lady. However, if Americans are so happy to see “dictators” thrown out in such fashion, and if they are indeed eager to give a helping hand in such overthrows, they need to learn to live with the consequences. Generally speaking, revolutionary mobs also happen to be staunch nationalists, that’s almost like a hard and fast rule. Even Americans tar-and-feathered loyalists at that time. So in fact, I always thought that Americans should be happy with dictators. “Democratic” mobs, especially in those problematic regions of the world, have very few reasons to like Americans.

  • no burquas!

    Islam oppresses women and non-muslims. Wake up you idiot ‘voice of delusion’. Did you not see the brave Iranian women throwing off their head coverings and burial shrouds (burqua)in their protests? We know the evil of this religion by observing their treatment of women.

  • no burquas!

    Bingo sDee.

  • no burquas!

    Correct. She was raped bcuz she was in western garb, not shrouded head to toe in slave cloth.

  • The Crusades would have never taken place if Christian Europe had burned down Mecca after Muslim Arabs sailed up the Tiber and attacked the Vatican and other Catholic churches in Rome itself.
    History is repeating itself as once again Islam is on the attack and Christianity sits by trying to pretend its not happening. Eventually Christians will strike back and defend themselves but by that time 1000s of people will have been killed or had their lives shattered by Islam.

  • The most amazing thing here is that 60 minutes tried to suppress this story and even when it was reported described what happened with watered down words. Try to imagine what 60 minutes and the rest of our liberal self loathing press would done if a Muslim woman had been ” repeatedly sexual assaulted and beat” by Christians while she was reporting on the “jubilation” during a Tea Party rally.

  • No one seemed to care or learned a lesson from Daniel Pearl’s story. Will anyone learn a lesson over Logan’s story?
    As far as being held as a spy, I don’t get that, this woman has been around for a long time now, an internet search could very easily identify her as a journalist for CBS. So why the dog and pony show? Hate Americans?

  • I will give $10,000 to anyone who can prove that that was a gang of Coptic Christians, Episcopalians, Quakers, Amish, Hindu, or Wiccans.

    She should have known better than to go back. Pure stupidity. Even that dolt Ashleigh Banfield knew to darken her hair when she went to Afghanistan.
    I’m not blaming her, but she used very poor judgment.

  • AuntieMadder

    It would be impossible for them to “know” she’s a Jew because, according to the NY Post, “Logan is not Jewish.” Because Muslims believe Jews to be “apes and pigs” and deserving of nothing better than torture and death, accusing* her of being Jewish justified gang-raping her.
    *Calling one a Jew is an accusation to the Muslim mindset only. Being Jewish or mistaken for a Jew is, of course, not an accusation to the rest of us who know that being Jewish is not a crime.

    is there a script for Muslim men gang raping an unbelieving woman in Katie Koric’s Muslim sit-com?

    Most of the Egyptian soldiers are Christian. Muslims don’t follow orders to well nor have any patience or tolerance. Having a genetic disorder of dementia is not good for being in the Army!
    I would bet the farm that the attackers were muslim! They don’t respect women and she was a foreign Infidel also!
    I would hazard a guess that you would rather believe the attackers came in from outer space for some fun with the female earthling….something similar to Shore-Leave right?

And of course muslims love Jews so it wouldn’t be muslims shouting, JEW JEW JEW while she was being raped! must have been those minority bloody Coptic christians out rampaging again!

  • mvdl

    How on earth can all these reports speak of “security around Mrs. Logan”, and then recount the “rape of 30 mins.” ?? What kind of crap-security is that ? The Network has some serious questions to answer on that one.
    In the Netherlands, still a country ‘at peace’, we have 24/7 presence of security-guards + a bullet-proof vest for our Member of Parliament Geert Wilders, even when he’s not in a crowd of a million civilians…

  • The slimeball Nir Rosen has resigned from NYU.
    http://dailycaller.com/2011/02/16/nir-rosen-submits-resignation-nyu-accepts/
    After joking about the sexual assault* of CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan while she was reporting from Egypt, New York University fellow Nir Rosen has resigned, reports the National Review.
    “Nir Rosen is always provocative, but he crossed the line yesterday with his comments about Lara Logan,” wrote Karen J. Greenberg, executive director at NYU’s Center on Law and Security. “I am deeply distressed by what he wrote about Ms. Logan and strongly denounce his comments. They were cruel and insensitive and completely unacceptable.”
    Greenberg said Rosen misunderstood the severity of Logan’s attack and that he’s filed his resignation.
    “Mr. Rosen tells me that he misunderstood the severity of the attack on her in Cairo. He has apologized, withdrawn his remarks, and submitted his resignation as a fellow, which I have accepted,” Greenberg wrote. “However, this in no way compensates for the harm his comments have inflicted. We are all horrified by what happened to Ms. Logan, and our thoughts are with her during this difficult time.”

  • Harley2002

    So CBS tried to hide the incident. Imagine if it was a Tea Party Rally and just 1 Christian raped her? I hate the hypocrites in the Lamestream press. They are the true enemy of this country.

  • Harley2002

    You have to remember Marxists or Liberals really believe that these scum are peaceful. It was probably a shock to her that these scum acted in a natural way to her like they do all people that don’t follow the Mooslim religion. Our media are dominated by brainwashed Marxists who are pretty dang stupid.

    “war correspondent who is back home with her kids and recovering after being brutally attacked last week in Egypt has vowed to return to work “within weeks.”…”She is going to be OK,” a friend told TMZ.”
    perfect. amazing woman. I am so glad her serious injury was not critical. I hope she continues with her Wael Ghonim interview and he again inspires the best of his fellow Egyptians.
    As for the educationally retarded and emotionally undisciplined people in Egypt or the world…well its gonna be quite a job to bring them up to speed.
    Isolated uneducated fools are found in Arizona Grocery store parking lots as well as in Egyptian crowds. Every country has its fundamentalists and hotheads and rapists and murderers.
    like “home schooled” hillbillies sometimes mom and pops just dont have all the answers the rest of the world has discovered in the last 2500 years.
    Fundamentalists, like teens or wild kindergartners with guns, must be be approached carefully lest they be spooked. but if disarmed and secured they can easily be wowed by simple wisdom and fancy cigarette lighters. I think intense classical music and cheese raviolis work too.
    Surely American Christian Fundamentalism isnt the answer…not intellectually or sexually. its another version of the problem.
    A brilliant education and healthy fun social opportunities …including sex…are the way towards civilization. You have to deal with sex if you want be healthy and real yourself let alone have credibility or make real progress with clueless horny extremists…or teens (same thing).
    Anybody who grows up without the gift of enlightenment and civilization
    will know no more and live no better than was done 10,000 years ago before Egypt ever existed.

  • There is more at http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums/archive/index.php/t-75653.html
    Here is just another sordid example of the use of rape by Islam against women and children under Islamic doctrine. I cut and pasted it only to graphically expose the truth behind the Islamic propaganda that “Islam is a religion of peace.” The prophet Muhammad’s modus operandi was for him and his male followers to use rape against selected women and children as a means of terrorizing, controlling, dominating, and subjugating. By raping the women and children in front of the subdued male husbands, fathers, and relatives, Muslim men are also instilling in these men a sense of helplessness, trauma, and impotence in the face of Islam.
    Account of Rape Victim in riots in Indonesia
    “My name is Vivian, and I am 18 years old. I have a little sister and brother. As a family we live in what is supposed to be a “secure” apartment.
    At 9.15 am, May 14th, 1998 a huge crowd had gathered around our apartment. They screamed, “Let’s butcher the Chinese!”, “Let’s eat pigs!”, “Let’s have a party!” We live of the 7th floor and we got a call from a family on the 3rd floor saying that the crowd had reached the 2nd floor. They even chased some occupants upstairs. We were all very frightened. In our fright we prayed and left everything in God’s hands.
    Afterward we left our room and went upstairs to the top floor, as it was impossible to go downstairs and escape. We got to the 15th floor and stayed with some friends. Not long afterwards we were surprised because some of the crowd coming out of the elevators right before we entered the room. We hurried into the room and locked the door tightly. At that time we heard them knock at the other rooms loudly and there were some screams from women and girls. Our room was filled with fear.
    We realized that they would come to us. So we spread throughout the room hiding in the corners. We could hear girls of 10 to 12 years old screaming, “Mommy, ..mommy…mom…mom…it hurts” That time I didn’t know that these little girls were being raped. After about half an hour the noise diminished and we had some guts to go out and check. It was indescribable. A lot, some of them young girls, were lying on the floor. “Oh my God, what has happened?” Seeing all of this we screamed and my little sister Fenny, screamed hysterically and hugged her father.
    Uncle Dodi kept trying to stop them by offering money. His efforts were fruitless. And in the end 5 people raped Fenny. Before beginning with the raping they always said “Allahu Akbar” (an Islamic phrase in Arabic meaning “God is great”. They were ferocious and brutal.
    Not long afterward, around 9 men came to the room and dragged me. I also saw them forcing and dragging my Aunt Vera. But at that time I passed out and everything went blank. I became conscious at around 5 or 6 PM. My head hurted and I realized I had no clothing on my body. I cried and realized my family was still there. My father was hugging my mother and little bother Doni. I also saw uncle Dodi lying on the floor and Aunt Vera was crying over his body. I felt so weak and fainted again.
    The next day I was in the Pluit hospital. My father and mother were beside me. With all the pains on my body I asked, “Mom, why Fenny. Mom?” I felt a stinging pain as I said these words. My cheeks were swollen. My mother cried again and couldn’t speak any words, while my father, holding back his tears, managed to smile at me. After 4 days in treatment, my condition has improved. With a sad look, my father told me then what had happened. After I fainted 7 people raped me. At that time my father still couldn’t see well after being hit with a piece of wood. They raped me repeatedly. Then my father said “Vivian, Fenny is gone…”
    I was confused and cried out, “Why Dad?” My father couldn’t answer. He told me to rest and went out of the room. I cried over and over again, feeling that my life had no meaning any more. A week ago, after I was released from the hospital I was told everything that had happened.
    When Fenny was raped she kept on fighting and so she was repeatedly slapped by her rapists. The last time she fought Fenny spitted on one of them. Offended, the man grabbed a knife and stabbed Fenny’s stomach over and over again. Finally she died with blood over her whole body.
    My father told me that uncle Dodi had the same fate watched by aunt Vera who was also raped. “God…why should all of this happen? Where are you God? Are you still alive?” My aunt Vera now stays with her parents. She is in shock. Her face is blank and refuses to eat. Almost every hour my mother and I cry over all these happenings. I can never forget.

    Rape is something that upsets and sickens any normal compassionate person. However I fail to see the strategic advantage in the incitement of hatred towards people of a religion or political ideology. The mob mentality sprung up a few years back in New York during the St Patrick’s day parade. In full view of everyone this happened (young woman attacked). We should be inciting the men of this planet to step in and stop these acts or better still to prevent them from happening in the first place. I walked out of the college I work at in Toronto and had cause to pull aside a student who was speaking about a female student in a very derogatory manner. I gave him a good bollocking, but his attitude was really sad to be honest. He clearly lacked respect for woman and felt quite justified in his comments. In Iraq, woman spat on and scratched at the captured special forces soldiers being paraded, more likely out of being repressed by men and seizing a chance to let out that frustration. I don’t really care what someone’s religious belief is as long as it respects basic human rights. I’d fight tooth and nail to protect a woman, any woman, and I sincerely hope I speak for the majority of the men out there, be you Muslim, Christian or anything else.
    To you who seems intent on providing all the evidence that you have as to the historical aspects of the Islamic faiths, it isn’t going to do much more than generate more hatred. You may in fact find information that proves your point, but it’s a hollow win if achieved. Have you ever argued with someone, and won and then felt after that the victory felt pointless? You can’t expect someone who is of the faith that you vilified to sit there and say to themselves “Hmmm he or she is right, I should really think about switching religion” Seriously for someone who is at least able to compose a coherent message, you can’t honestly believe that you are going to do more than simply fuel the hatred within those that believe as you do anyway? The route of the problem here is men who get their kicks out of raping. Simple as that. When I was at school in the North East of England I saw the kids divided by two types, those that stopped fighting when the kid dropped, and those that continued to kick. The kid that continues usually had lots of issues, and the pleasure derived from seeing someone suffer was usually nurtured by really poor parenting. Which in this case may be a parent extracting the wrong things from religious writings, but essentially it’s a parent who’s teaching hatred not compassion.
    To Lara’s boss, you should be ashamed. I have a very strong willed friend who’s a lawyer who’d go Egypt without hesitation if her boss sanctioned it. It scares the life out of me. Some people love the chaos. By sending her, or even opening up the option to go you paved the way for this to happen. How can you not think an attractive white woman with blond hair was not a potential target of this type of behavior? I’m sure they have already rationalized their actions, but really!? Your greed and need for the story had you sending her in? after being already detained? you want your head examined! I hope she recovers and shelves these trips for her family.

  • Jamadagnii

    Yeah, a real horror. Sickening.
    What’s weird is that there is another side to Egypt which has not been reported. See: http://www.culturewheel.com and http://www.enigma-mag.com/out_about/ and http://www.firstmallcairo.com/ There are a lot of very attractive women and men in Cairo. Maybe that is why the kids are so confident that the Muslim Brotherhood won’t gain control?

  • bubb

    its always a few right lindsey? Although most polls in the middle east show that the majority of arab and muslims in the middle east support stoning, death for converts to other religions, Sharia, and Bin Laden, rape, execution of adulterers…..but just a few right?
    Ok…..i want to live in that PC world with u…..yes lets keep that multicultural cowardice going….

    PC multiculturism was invented to suppress free speech and opposition to liberals and the left. It is a tool to suppress any opposition to their complete control of communications nationally and internationally.

  • bubb

    ah yes the liberal has arrived. I bet you would say the same thing if this was a Christian..Im sure…..No not men …no not EUrope…no your stories are absolute BS.
    No there are not huge groups of western non-muslim men walking around looking to rape women….no nice try in lala land…..you seem like a great job applicant for the MSM.

    Islam will eventually be uprooted from this region, as well from all of the earth. Damn every notion of “Allah”, and every honor to the false prophet “Mohammed”. Egypt will suffer for its sins, but will yet turn to the Lord in the light of Israel, Zech 14, Isaiah 19.

    “The NY Post is the only news outlet reporting that the Muslims raping her were shouting “Jew, Jew, Jew.” ”
    Yes the reason no one is reporting this is because it’s BS.
    HTH!

  • Redneck Woman

    Excuse me for saying asking but, you were obviously not home schooled were you? Hate to burst your spit bubble ….home schooled children are a lot smarter than public schooled children. The reason being is that they aren’t indoctrinated with all the multiculturalism and PC/Liberal gobbledygook! The home schooled children actually get an education and are taught to rely on their common sense also!
    Not many muslims in Egypt or other muslim countries have been educated.They go to prayers 5 times a day…doesn’t leave much time for actual learning. They also don’t have the same curriculum that others do. The Koran is the only text book of worth along with books on how to amputate feet and hands or the proper stoning techniques.
    I’m hoping that all your comment above was said with tongue in cheek!

  • Redneck Woman

    perhaps we should send gibblett to go talk nicey-nicey to the muslims in Egypt. Gibblett can tell them that it wasn’t nice to rape poor Lara and that they should stop doing things like this cause it’s just making them look bad to the rest of the world!
    Liberals are so effin’ clueless! Don’t know how they walk and talk at the same time!

  • Redneck Woman

    Oh…you were there then?
    I think the reason no one is reporting it is because they don’t want to make the Muslims look worse than they already do and have people saying ” See, they are against Jews”!!
    Just more of the Liberal sit and spin factor!

  • mary

    Those disgusting men are the ugliest people I`ve ever seen. They are slimy and gross and don`t deserve to remain on the planet. They probably never get any women other than rape. They hate us because women are beautiful. Disgusting. Throw em in the prisons but first remove their tiny 1 inch penises

  • Meta

    Christianity was an evil religion when it did that and worse, pure evil hatred of women and anyone not down with Jesus. Yes, there is still that element showing it’s head these days. Christianity is evil as Islam is in the same way, insisting that their beliefs are the only true one way to live and die. There can be no inherent respect between peoples when that is one’s fundamental basis of belief. My way, or death, or hell, or whatever else people create for unbelievers.

  • anair

    Christianity is based on a central figure who loved his enemies by dying for them. His followers are called to respond by loving their enemies as well. Without Christ as a fundamental basis of belief there can be no inherent respect between peoples. For example, you don’t seem to follow Christ and also don’t seem to respect other people who may be different from you.

  • pixord1@yahoo.com

    Over 82% of Egyptian woman have their genitals removed before the age of 16. An intact infidel woman is considered red meat to be abused and shamed at will.
    Ms. Logan seems to believe the narrative being pushed my the mainstream media. Democracy loving crowd ready to live in harmony with each other. While I wish her a full recovery, I find it insane that she would enter into this crowd of disgusting animals.

  • The saddest thing is that this whole situation could have been avoided if CBS has taken some precautions: http://morningquickie.com/2011/02/18/why-lara-logan-raped-female-reporter-safety/

  • Christians do not believe in stoning their women or killing their children because of some type of shame that they brought upon the family. Christians don’t believe in killing other Christians because they decide to change faiths. Most Christians do not believe on insisting that their beliefs are the only true way to live and die…Christians do believe that all beings have free will to decide….though Christians are suppose to show and speak about their faith.
    I guess you have fun on April Fool’s day! The day set aside for all athiests to celebrate! BTW….you can always convert to the muslim faith if that suits your ideals better!

  • you meant antichrist obama told you so !!!!!!!

  • What Islam really is ? answers from Apostates of Islam:
    http://www.apostatesofislam.com/
    Why Quran is not from God:
    Muhammad produced no miracles and when pressed he claimed that his miracle is the Quran. Yet a cursory look at the Quran reveals that this book is full of errors. Quran is replete with scientific heresies, historic blunders, mathematical mistakes, logical absurdities, grammatical errors and ethical fallacies. It is badly compiled and it contradicts itself. There is nothing intelligent in this book let alone miraculous. Muhammad challenged people to produce a “Surah like it” or find an error therein, yet Muslims would kill anyone who dares to criticize it. In such a climate of hypocrisy and violence truth is the first casualty.
    Why Mohammed was not a prophet:
    One who claims to be a messenger of God is expected to live a saintly life. He must not be given to lust, he must not be a sexual pervert, and he must not be a rapist, a highway robber, a war criminal, a mass murderer or an assassin. One who claims to be a messenger of God must have a superior character. He must stand above the vices of the people of his time. Yet Muhammad’s life is that of a gangster godfather. He raided merchant caravans, looted innocent people, massacred entire male populations and enslaved the women and children. He raped the women captured in war after killing their husbands and told his followers that it is okay to have sex with their captives and their “right hand possessions” (Quran 33:50) He assassinated those who criticized him and executed them when he came to power and became de facto despot of Arabia. Muhammad was bereft of human compassion. He was an obsessed man with his dreams of grandiosity and could not forgive those who stood in his way. Muhammad was a narcissist like Hitler, Saddam or Stalin. He was astute and knew how to manipulate people, but his emotional intelligence was less evolved than that of a 6-year-old child. He simply could not feel the pain of others. He brutally massacred thousands of innocent people and pillaged their wealth. His ambitions were big and as a narcissist he honestly believed he is entitled to do as he pleased and commit all sorts of crimes and his evil deeds are justified.
    Who we are:
    We are ex-Muslims. Some of us were born and raised in Islam and some of us had converted to Islam at some moment in our lives. We were taught never to question the truth of Islam and to believe in Allah and his messenger with blind faith. We were told that Allah would forgive all sins but the sin of disbelief (Quran 4:48 and 4:116). But we committed the ultimate sin of thinking and questioned the belief that was imposed on us and we came to realize that far from being a religion of truth, Islam is a hoax, it is hallucination of a sick mind and nothing but lies and deceits.
    What is our goal?
    We are apostates of Islam. We denounce Islam as a false doctrine of hate and terror. However we are not against Muslims who are our own kin and relatives. We do not advocate hate and violence. Muslims are the main victims of Islam. Our goal is to educate them and let them see the truth. We are against Islam and not the Muslims. We strive to bring the Muslims into the fold of humanity. Eradicate Islam so our people can be liberated, so they can prosper and break away from the pillory of Islam. We would like to see Islamic countries dedicate more time to science and less time to Quran and Sharia. We would like to see them prosper and contribute to human civilization. We would like to see the draconian laws of Islam eliminated and people are treated humanely. We strive for freedom of beliefs, for equality of gender and for oneness of humankind.
    humankind’s biggest challenge:
    Today the humanity is facing a great danger. Islamic fundamentalism is on the rise and the hatred is brewing in the minds of millions of Muslims. This hatred must be contained or there would be disastrous consequences. We believe that the education is the only answer. Muslim intellectuals must realize that Islam is a false doctrine and they must let the rest of Islamic world know the truth. Islam is a religion that thrives on the arrogant assumption that it is the most logical, the most scientific and the most perfect religion. While the fact is that it is the stupidest doctrine — the most backward and absurd belief. Once the truth about Islam becomes common knowledge, it will be weakened and the Islamic fanaticism will lose its fangs. Hundreds of billions of dollars are being expended to combat Islamic terrorism, yet no effort is made to contain the ideology behind this terrorism. It is our belief that Islamic terrorism will not be eliminated unless and until the ideology behind it is exposed and eradicated. This is what we intend to do.

  • Brilliantly written… thank you for sharing your insight.

  • Old Gringo In Iraq

    80% of all Egyptians are Muslim with the remaining 20% overwhelmingly Coptic Christian, a sect which has a high percentage of devout practitioners. The Coptic Christians are decidedly NOT hostile towards Jews, which makes it unlikely they would be hurling “Jew, Jew” as an epithet while committing such a grievous mortal sin as rape. So, while it is certainly possible Logan’s attackers were not Muslims, it’s highly probable that they were indeed Muslims.
    Regardless, it is neither fair nor right to condemn the many for the actions of the few. If those animals could be found and brought to justice by the Egyptian authorities, it would send a powerful message.

    Why bring circumcision into it? In the middle east, they consider uncircumcised female genitals filthy (but I guess they thought Lara Logan’s were good enough)

  • Presbyterian

    The truth that Islam is a cursed/God hated religion, being a blatant affront to the declarative glory of “I AM”, and a manifest conduit prepared for many ordained to eternal damnation, is not contingent upon what happened or didn’t happen to this woman. The history of Islam is a testimony against itself, as is the Koran. It will burn in the fires of Hell, along with its adherents…

    “Isolated uneducated fools are found in
    Arizona Grocery store parking lots as well as
    in Egyptian crowds. Every country has its
    fundamentalists and hotheads and rapists and murderers. ”
    “like “home schooled” hillbillies
    sometimes mom and pops
    just dont have all the answers the rest
    of the world has discovered in the last 2500 years. ”
    Notice that I said — “sometimes” –.
    Sometimes people dont have all the neccessary facts.
    Yes public schoolers also can be as short on important facts.
    as private schoolers or home schoolers. it depends upon the school
    and the community and family and individual student.
    The young man in the arizona parking lot shooting was a public schooler.
    and yet he was still isolated and inadequately educated.
    yes there is a lot of gobbledygook…in the world.
    but people who think independently can often get beyond it
    There exists 2500 years of science and study and philosophers and wisdom
    and hundreds of thousands of writings from human history we all have to chose from.
    any who blindly follow and refuse to question or discuss as set of beliefs
    and dismiss the wealth of knowledge of civilization can not see or know whether
    what they believe is gobbledygook or not.
    The ability to think at a high level
    is what most makes us human.
    to reject debate and thought
    is to reject being human
    anyone who uses the brain life gave them can learn
    anybody who works in the sun long enough will get a red neck.

    We feel very sorry for what happened to Lara, and we are all offended by this act. when i say we, i speak about Egyptians (Muslims and Christians). i know for most of you, you don’t easily accept these words. but, i don’t blame you. i blame the biased media that has been playing this role for a long time. i lived in the states for 2 years where i went to the university there. i witnessed the media’s role against its view for the middle east. In Egypt, i’ve a lot of christian friends, friends from all over the world. Yes, you can find a minority of bad muslims, but that doesn’t mean that all muslims or islam in principle is the devil. Again i repeat my deepest aplogies for that brutal act. but, i say for these who bring up numbers and statistics about egyptians, and would like to show to others how ignorant we might look like. it’s very easy to do the same thing whether you’re an american, or coming from any country. but, you as a christian, a jew, should and should have been taught this in your religion is whomever doesn’t have a sin in his life, to throw her with a stone.

  • What about all those “Christian” Catholic priests sticking their filthy dicks in the bums of little boys? That isn’t rape? They aren’t animals? Aren’t these acts institutionalized? Covered up by the Vatican? Why is that different, you Muslim hating bloggers? How about the millions of Catholics who turn a blind eye to the vile doing’s of their spiritual leaders? Religion is corrupt by nature–a steaming pile of horseshit.

  • Marian

    There are a few things u have to understand
    There were no police forces at all from 28/1 till a week after mubarak stepped down
    On 28/1 the prisons were opened by the corrupt police loyal to the regime and 28,000 prisoners were loose on the streets steeling killing and rapping.
    The state TV which was under control of the regime said that all foreigners and tv crews in tahrir square are spies.(bec they didnt want anybody to show the world what was happening)
    Not to mention that there were paid pro-mubarak thugs everywhere trying to cause chaos and blame it on the peaceful demonstrators.
    more than 400 young egyptian protesters men and women were killed these people were out calling for a life with dignity,respect,no corruption….etc
    I am sorry for what happened to Lara logan she is in my prayers, but it was not the the peaceful demonstrators who did that
    Too many people have died for the sake of the beliefs of the Egyptian revolution for u to insult it
    I’m Proud to be Egyptian and I’m proud to have taken part in the protests

    In the middle east they think women in general are filthy, the men are animals and should be treated accordingly. Middle eastern scum.

  • mas

    The amount of hatred and ignorance demonstrated in the above comments makes me realise how similar the mindset of people are across all religions when they don’t see people as individulas. You are no different from that mob if you can’t see the cycle of blame and predjudice stop has to stop. People of all religions have been victims and perpretrators of rape and abuse through out the ages. Rape and violence is a human action that takes a terrible toll on their human victims- end of story. I wish Lara and all decent people of any religion nothing but good will.
