CBS' Lara Logan sexually assaulted by Egyptian mob

Just a short time ago, a most abominable crime took place, perpetrated against a CBS news reporter (Hat tip: Scared Monkeys):
In the crush of the mob, she 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. She is currently home recovering.
Absolutely repugnant. This is whom the MSM consider "freedom fighters", including Bill Kristol? After this, I think Kristol had better apologize for aligning himself with the left and sugarcoating such violent, misogynist behavior. These are not the kind of people the west should be helping at all. Even with Iran, the west may have to be careful in case there's savage brutes among the crowd that's supposedly against Ahmedinejad.

Update: there's more to this case than meets the eye. From the New York Post (via Jihad Watch and Weasel Zippers):
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. [...]

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.
All this is most likely the result of being indoctrinated with Koranic verses like "Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks..." -- Qur'an 47:4 But will this experience serve as a wakeup call to the victims? Who knows?

Others on the subject include Fire Andrea Mitchell, Michelle Malkin, The Jawa Report, Fact Real, Atlas Shrugs, Big Peace (plus, another one), Power Line, The Daily Caller.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
