THE ATTACK ON CBS REPORTER LARA LOGAN
There has not been much coverage by the mainstream press concerning the brutal rape of Lara Logan, CBS reporter last week in Tahrir Square, Cairo. The mainstream media has been too busy engaged in exhilarating celebration over those wonderful young men marching for peace as the brutal assault was being conducted.
For days we heard only that a CBS reporter was assaulted. The details began to immerge from accounts taken from video and camera phones. But still the mainstream media says little of the brutal attack. To protect the Egyptian men standing just behind Lara prior to the attach CBS made their faces fuzzy in the photograph.
To report on such a violent and disgusting attack on a young, innocent woman would darken the mood, blacken the event, and even worse it would bring to the surface a discussion about Sharia Law which condones this sort of violence against infidel women, Christians and Jews.
According to reports from videos and camera phones a crowd of approximately 200 men surrounded the girl, separating her from her companion and screamed “Jew” and “American Bitch.” (She is neither Jewish nor American) Her clothes were ripped off and she was groped, beaten, bitten, urinated and masturbated upon, raped vaginally and anally for up to three hours and left bloodied and soiled by semen and urine. The crowd simply watched.
After several hours of being brutalized, a few women and twenty Egyptian soldiers rescued her. She returned to the USA and was hospitalized.
