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.

      I agree. I cannot imagine how you recover from something this devastating.

      Yes, I'm not surprised at all she'd want to die for even that long, it being so brutal and with such overwhelming numbers of attackers, and for all she knew, as you reported, she thought they were going to kill her slowly. So, of course she'd want to die more quickly. I can't imagine the psychological impact of this.

      In her interview the said the attack went on for about 25 minutes. I imagine it seemed endless to her, in fact she said she said at one point she wanted to die.

      I think your updated hub on this says she was attacked for 25 minutes. I assume that is the more updated information. I grieve for Laura, a survivor of such a brutal attack.

      This is such a shameful story. Why the MSM won't report on it is simple, because it could happen here in a few years. They want to glorify the Muslims, act like it is a religion of peace and tolerance, admitting anything else would be unheard of in the MSM, but we need to get the word out. Muslim isn't the religion of peace and tolerance and unless we want our Moms, Sisters, and Daughters treated this way in America we need to speak up and keep them out of this country. Sharia Law has no place in America. I weep for what Ms. Logan went through, now she needs to speak up and out for the potential victims here and abroad.

      This shows us what they of us. And shame on the media, as usual, for not covering this.

      Keep on hubbing!
