Cairo Mob Attacked CNN: 'They Were Animals
INM ^ | 9/11/11 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

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.

Obamas friends,, he created them, and supports their goals. These are merely the green shoots of the Arab spring. Refreshing,,,isn’t it?

They absolutely are animals.

"I was worried that they were going to rape her."

They may not have stopped with her buddy, rape is about domination and power, thats what these animals want and they use allah as an excuse.

How many of them are still faithfully defending the Religion of Peace (”only a few muslims have gone bad by straying from the peaceful ways of Islam”), and how many are still carrying water for Obama?

Kind of unique animals ~ imagining that the correct response to finding a spy is rape?!?!?!?

The demonstrators were sexual perverts ~ "faggots" in the vernacular.

Guess Islam breeds them.

Remember:

Before we went into Iraq, only CNN had access to Iraq, Saddam, etc.

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.

So much for fair and honest reporting. Perhaps CNN thought if they deliberately slanted their reporting to the most radical of protesters, they would be protected.

Friend, you are right on the mark!! Our USA Destroyer in Chief Obama, aiding and abetting his Muslim Brotherhood brethren in Libya & Egypt. Obama’s “Arab Spring” turned out exactly as he wanted it to, the successful takeover of the Middle East and North Africa by Obama’s chosen people, the Muslim Brotherhood!!! Now the murders and destruction of innocent Black African Christians and Jewish settlers can now go on unobstructed with the African Muslim blessing of the devoted Muslim Brother, Barack Hussein Obama!!!

Dear CNN,
They have always been animals they were just friendly towards you because you served their purpose. Friday you were in their way and well animals do what animals do.

“Ya think? Finally, somebody gets it. “

The left will never really ‘get it’, until they lose everything and their very existence is threatened. Even then, I'm not sure. Actually, they're not that different in that regard than the Jihadists who are willing to blow themselves up.

Poor liberal lefty Dina Amir. Any news crew that allows with it, a women on the streets of “Arab Spring” Islamofascist Cairo is seeking a precipitous paradigm adjustment.

At least poor Dina has a twitter account that bears sober reflection:/sarc

You will notice that Dina Amirs Twitter account refers to the Suez Revolutionary Youth Coalition. I wonder how many millions of US dollars the CIA is funneling to them?

The Suez Revolutionary Youth Coalition apparently have taken the advanced Islamofascist courses in thuggery and group rape.LOL. Poor Dina, she is in an alternate reality.

Obama owns Arab Spring and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Oil at $200 is quite likely as the Brotherhood messes up the Middle East.

As happened under Jimmy Carter, a weak-brained President does not work when dealing with the Muslims.

We are headed towards some bad karma in the next two years.

Obama is history, but it is still two years until a voice of reason is placed in office.

>>>>>>>Obama is history, but it is still two years until a voice of reason is placed in office.<<<<<<

Quote:

The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

Cairo Mob Attacked CNN: 'They Were Animals

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.

“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 world’s press had the choice of coving Stalin’s 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 didn’t 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 didn’t need access to Saddam to cover him. But, then, it’s 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 you’re 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 there’s a monster touching him.

Americans are like a cat. They can only look at one thing at a time. Imagine what didn’t 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.

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?
