New horror details of Lara's nightmare
New York Post ^ | Feb. 22, 2011 | Don Kaplan

Posted on 02/23/2011 12:02:04 PM PST by La Enchiladita

War reporter Lara Logan was stripped and beaten with makeshift poles used to fly flags during the celebration of the downfall of Egyptian strongman Hosni Mubarak, according to new details of her sex attack in Cairo's Tahrir Square almost two weeks ago.

CBS News' 39-year-old chief foreign correspondent also was kicked, punched, slapped, pinched and her hair pulled out while a crowd of about 200 chanted "Jew, Jew, Jew" and accused her of being an Israeli spy, according to The Times of London.

Logan is not Jewish.

Doctors say welts on Logan's body, originally thought to be bites, are consistent with being whipped and beaten with the flagpoles.

Beaten with flagpoles. Beaten within an inch of her life, nearly raped according to this report. She might as well have been raped, since she was stripped and publicly humiliated a gang of males. Why the silence on this since the initial report? How and why did her crew and security guards abandon her? Were they infiltrated? Notice it was the evil Egyptian soldiers who helped rescue her and escort her to safety and medical attention, not any of the "freedom-loving revolutionaries."

I thought Logan was rescued by a group of Egyptian women?

Because an American white woman is automatically the oppressor here. The noble, down-trodden Islamic men were simply acting-out “justifiable Islamic rage.” You dunce.

It seems to imply that is she were Jewish, then shouting “Jew” while beating her is somehow different.

Her crew and “security” abandoned her because they are liberals, and thus concerned primarily with their own safety.

The convention is that "the Good Guy" is always the one who is the biggest victim.

Journalists think very highly of themselves and usually see themselves as Good Guys.
But women are big time victims so they are often the Good Guy. They trump mere journalists (though a female journalist is double-plus good).
But blacks can trump that. A black victim must be placed on a pedestral and it's hard to out-victim an African-American.
But Muslims trump everything. I mean, they probably own the news station. They win. Everytime.

So, the female journalist, stripped, beaten, humiliated in public? Well, she's not the real victim here. The Muslim men who beat her -- they are the victims. They are the Good Guys.

Of course, the unenlightened public may have difficulty perceiving this nuanced view of things, so it's probably best if this story just "disappears".

i think he meant someone was a dunce, which has kind of an interesting derivation: dunce [dʌns] n a person who is stupid or slow to learn [from Dunses or Dunsmen, term of ridicule applied to the followers of John Duns Scotus (?1265-1308), Scottish scholastic theologian and Franciscan priest, especially by 16th-century humanists]

I am measuring myself for a burka now since on March 25th DC an Imam will demand that Sharia law be instituted here in the US - to give freedom to the oppressed American people.

Her security didn’t really turn on her. They just acted like lefties do when faced with real trouble. They ran. And when lefties abandon ship it’s “every man for himself” not “women and children first.”

Its ironic that a South African had to travel all the way to Egypt to be attacked and raped by other Africans.

Usually, a South African doesn’t need to leave their home for that treatment.

This has been true for eons. I had a classmate in Brooklyn of Arabic Christian extraction who used to say “I only date white meat.” This was over 50 years ago.

FOX NEWS

Reporter Jane Johnson was stripped and beaten with makeshift poles used to fly flags during a Bastille Day celebration, according to new details of her sex attack at the Grande Drapeau Blanche square in Paris almost two weeks ago.

FOX News’ 39-year-old chief foreign correspondent also was kicked, punched, slapped, pinched, rubbed with bleu cheese, and her hair pulled out while a crowd of about 200 chanted “Gypsy!, Gypsy!, Gypsy!” and accused her of being a thieving mendicant, according to The Times of London.

Logan is not a Gypsy.

Doctors say welts on Johnson’s body, originally thought to be bites, are consistent with being whipped and beaten with the flagpoles....

Wonder how that one would fly ?

As the protests had escalated, Egyptian state media began publishing negative stories about foreign journalists, with many reports alleging that Israeli spies were posing as news crews. About a week before her attack, Logan and her crew had been among the many journalists rounded up and held on suspicion of being spies.

Er. Yes. Female Israeli spies in Egypt would want naturally to look like blonde caucasians. They'd never want to blend in. /s

-——despicable the way they say “she is not jewish” like that makes it even worse.———

To many Arabs the American press is owned and operated by Jews. To distinguish this stupid woman from the host of owners and point out there are minions that are not Jewish it was felt necessary to make the point.

She is female and works for CBS and is meddling where she has no business.

(As a presstitute, she is a bonefide American enemy. No tears for her or her stupidity.)

The evidence would be Logan’s retelling, eyewitness accounts and videotape, maybe some still photos. Some or most of this is being held back.

No mention of "religion" in the goals of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood:

“Our goal, most important mission , is to have an Islamic revival in the society, to convince people that you can build a new country, a new era according to your Islamic beliefs… We are not only a political group; we are an Islamic organization. Islam deals with politics, with economics, with social affairs, with solidarity of people, with their education, with all aspects of life.”

Nothing about women's rights, either.

Inside the Muslim Brotherhood
