Not like the good old USA where you can protest, make a fool out of yourself, and go about your merry way. What a rotten country we live in! (/sarcasm)

Unless you’re part of a Conservative group. Then the government will spy on you, tax you, try to keep you out of the system and destroy your life.

I doubt they broke her arm. She is probably lying as usual. She didn't get treated like a little princess like in the U.S. So she throws a hissy fit. They were probably just trying to shut her up.

Her arm was broken from the stampede of Egyptian security forces, when they were told, that, one of them, was going to have to perform a strip search and full body cavity search on her.

I watch a TV channel called MeTv which shows old TV shows but apparently is owned by an ABC affiliate. Sometimes, I see ads related to nauseating daytime talk shows (Kelly Ripa for instance) or current TV shows. Last night, I was subjected to a “highlight” of a show with a chick pounding the face of a man as she was on top of him. How many of these shows exist or have in recent years? Women pounding men. I saw one where a talk show host (Jimmy Kimmel or that Fallon guy, I get the two mixed up) where a woman slapped his face during an appearance. Who considers this to be entertainment.

Look on the bright side, Ms Benjamin: you should be happy that your head is still attached to your body. Or that your brain, whatever small amount there might be inside your thick skull, was not blown apart by a bullet.

Medea Benjamin said she was on her way to Gaza to join a group of 100 other women for International Women’s Day 2014 when she was stopped, posting photos and updates on Twitter.

Not sure about now, but Egyptian prisons in the past were manned by local police whose training was ... suspect.

These jailers were *NOT* Egyptian Security Forces.

Why she flew into Cairo to take the overland route to Gaza is suspicious. Egypt (not Israel) has closed the border to almost everyone that is not a local.

What did she do that made them arrest her and deport her?

Also, does anyone really think that Egyptian jailers wouldn't take a cell phone from a prisoner before tossing her in the clink?

The pictures prove nothing except that she found a fairly clean room in Cairo.

I call fake.

She was going to Gaza to stir up the natives. They should have taken her there, dropped her off. From 30,000 feet.

The arrogance of Americans who go overseas to protest astounds me. I wish this woman no harm, and if she’s telling the truth about the broken arm it will be a sad consequence.

Perhaps she is brave, perhaps ridicoluosly foolish. Regardless, it is less than Christian to revel in brutal treatment. I’m no fan of CodeStink. I disagree with their political agenda. I don’t hate them.

They should have not stopped with breaking her arm. If they actually broke her arm. I would have to see them breaking her arm before I would take her word that they did.

I DO! It’s not a sad consequence, it’s reality. About time Media had a large dose of it.

“take it off and beat her with the wet end”...My goodness, you must have known my grandfather and my father...I was forever threatened as a kid to stop doing this/that/the other thing by being told that he would rip off my ( any part of the anatomy ) “ and stick the wet end in my face ! Brings back fond memories of having respect for my elders.

Oh, I do. The minute they doled out $600K in 'humanitarian' aid to the 'insurgents' (ie. the scumbags shooting at our soldiers) in Iraq, that line was crossed.

Say it with me: 'Giving aid and comfort to the enemy' ...
