Posted on 09/11/2011 8:19:11 AM PDT by Nachum
CNN journalists described the Friday mob that attacked them during the riot at the Israeli embassy as animals. One other journalist was called a spy and almost was raped.
The worldwide news site reported a scene that brought back ugly memories of the gang rape of CBS reporter Lara Logan earlier this year during the Arab spring uprising against the Mubarak regime.
CNN reported that one person in the mob on Friday called Dina Amer, a woman member of another American crew, a spy. A CNN producer who is an Egyptian approached to rescue the woman from the rioters, but the mob overwhelmed the pair, the network reported.
"I was thinking, how powerless I was because there was no police to save us," said the producer, Mohammed Fadel Fahmy. "I was worried that they were going to rape her."
Someone shouted to Fahmy that there was a nearby car, and he brought the spy into the vehicle, which belonged to a television crew.

“”Wanna bet that if this story gets wide circulation (doubtful) CNN will feel a need to apologize?””
Speaking of apologizing why have we not been reading about CAIR demanding apologies about something lately?
Everything would have been just fine if those CNN racists had just "reached out" and understood why the muslims were upset. Islam is a religion of peas, after all, and obama wants us all to eat our peas.
Too bad they didn’t get the Lara Logan treatment.
Great quote. I wish I had known of it when some self-described libertarian made a post here yesterday supporting homosexual "marriage" in NY.
Liberals only care when it's their ox being gored...
After we went into Iraq and Saddam was neutralized, CNN admitted that they were intentionally not reporting about the atrocities they KNEW Saddam was inflicting on his people, so they could maintain access to him.
Standard dictator/press interaction. Stalin was starving 20 million Ukrainians to death. To keep the press from reporting on it, he seized and put several Americans on trial. (An infamous show trial. Remember when VP Biden threatened to have a show trial for Bush?) The worlds press had the choice of coving Stalins show trial or covering the starvation of 20 million people. The press unanimously chose the trial. Why is it that a trial would garner coverage when the actual deaths of 20 million people didnt warrant even a two-liner on page 12? Joseph Goebbels said: The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of a million men is a statistic.
Apparently it never occurred to the MSM that they didnt need access to Saddam to cover him. But, then, its hard to craft a sympathetic anti-Bush story when the all you have to go on is the facts of what that dictator (Saddam, in case youre the MSM reading this.) is doing. To be sympathetic, you need to show the human side where Saddam tussles the hair of a plainly terrified pre-pubescent male British hostage who well understands theres a monster touching him.
Americans are like a cat. They can only look at one thing at a time. Imagine what didnt get covered while OJ was on trial.
The gang rape of Lara Logan should have been a wake up call.
Why do we send journalists into dangerous situations like this?
Why do we send FEMALE journalists into such places?
Hate to get political, but western women journalists tend to be of a liberal feminist mindset. They can be naive about how the world outside of the U.S. and western Europe treats women. These female journalists may think that they are untouchable or have some exalted status in the rest of world, because they are western journalists. Lara Logan found out the hard way that they can become targets. It makes no sense to me that we continue to send women journalists into danger; into cultures who do not respect the rights of women.
And all of the journalists are naive about this whole Arab spring. The MSM narrative is that they are overthrowing dictators, wanting only to live in parliamentary democracy. They think of themselves as allies of the revolutionaries. But the revolutionaries do not have any reverence for the fact that a CNN news crew is reporting these stories to the world. Lara Logan should have been a wake up call that these are dangerous people. We may feel some sympathy for them as they overthrow dictators but these news people, with their western oriented outlook and liberal worldviews, should be smart enough to stay out of the way of danger.
So CNN, tell us, are you starting to understand who your friends are, and who ARE NOT your friends? A little, a wee bit, a smidgen of understanding coming through yet?
I wonder when the politically correct members of the press and our government will realize that sending women to Muslim countries is putting them at risk physically—mot to mention the contempt shown to our diplomatic efforts when brought to Muslim rulers by female diplomats.
To their eyes, sending females to shores in positions of importance is an insult to their culture. We wouldn’t serve them port at a diplomatic dinner, why do we persist in shoving our women down their throats in the cause of Western values?
And I said the same thing about the Clintons
Both Obama and Clinton are symptoms of the disease known as brain washed Dumb Ass voters
Bingo! They’re crazy for sending females into these areas.
Too many western females believe the”Charlie Angels” BS!

I read an article by a young, American black female progressive who traveled to Haiti to help after an earthquake. Im not actually sure what she was doing as far as help goes. But she reports she was raped by a Haitian acquaintance she was trying to help; a fellow traveler. All the while shes being raped she reports telling him things like: Dont do this to me. Youre just acting out your hatred of the white man. I cant imagine he could rape a woman who apparently never shut up and never caught on to the fact that her world view was irrelevant to this guy. (Incidentally, the rape was the fault of the oppressive white society that forced this man to do it.)
If enough feminist journalists get their butts kicked by women hating Muslims, maybe women in this country will pay more attention to who they vote for as President. Let’s see, if one is a Muslim, and the other is a Christian, which one should a woman vote for?
I’m wondering if CNN made up this story to divert attention away from the Israeli embassy attack.
These “friends” of Obama in the Middle East are no different than his “friends” in the USA (union members & feral inner-city population).
Just wait until he “mobilizes” them. It’s going to be a genuine nightmare if we fail to stick to our principles and stand our ground. Maxine Waters, Jimmie Hoffa, Jr., and the MSM are fanning the flames in an attempt to motivate/prepare them for mobilization against us.
Just like when Sharia takes over, those America-hating feminists, gay lobbysists, decadent Hollywood types will be the first to feel Allah’s wrath!
The mob was filled with righteous anger. Has anyone here ever watched CNN?
Hey Bill Kristol - is this what “democracy looks like”?? Arab “spring”, my arse !! These idiots have just morphed stable military dictatorships into the evolving reincarnation of the Caliphate!
Seems they forget Daniel Pearl, oh, but Obama is in the WH now, not Bush.
The muzzies can’t be trusted to act human.
