“Please God. Please make it stop.”

Last year it was CBS’ Lara Logan, who was sexually assaulted by a gang of hundreds of Egyptian men while covering the anti-Mubarak demonstrations in Tahrir Square. This year, it’s independent journalist Natasha Smith, attacked while she was walking with friends across a bridge during celebrations of the Muslim Brotherhood’s electoral victory:

But in a split second, everything changed. Men had been groping me for a while, but suddenly, something shifted. I found myself being dragged from my male friend, groped all over, with increasing force and aggression. I screamed. I could see what was happening and I saw that I was powerless to stop it. I couldn’t believe I had got into this situation.

My friend did everything he could to hold onto me. But hundreds of men were dragging me away, kicking and screaming. I was pushed onto a small platform as the crowd surged, where I was hunched over, determined to protect my camera. But it was no use. My camera was snatched from my grasp. My rucksack was torn from my back – it was so crowded that I didn’t even feel it. The mob stumbled off the platform – I twisted my ankle.

Men began to rip off my clothes. I was stripped naked. Their insatiable appetite to hurt me heightened. These men, hundreds of them, had turned from humans to animals.

No, animals act far better. This is a direct result of the less-than-human status women are accorded under Islam, particularly infidel women.

There are no words to describe the disgust I feel right now.

    And yet the Leftists would have people believe that Islam is a religion of peace and respectful of Western values such as the rights of women.

    I can’t wait to hear the condemnation of the attack on the reporter by Islamic scholars or political figures. [cue the sound of crickets chirping in the still of the night]

  2. The complete lack of respect for women is a central tenet of the Islamic faith. Their religion…their culture…even their laws dehumanize women.

    In contrast, Christian cultures have made women’s rights a priority. No other cultures in the world values the roles of women more than those who embrace Christianity.

    That’s why I am ever amazed that the left in the United States, who ‘claim’ to be the champions of women’s rights, continually demonize Christianity…while apologizing for the brutal treatment of those in Islamic-controlled nations. It makes no sense. Then again…we are talking about liberals, aren’t we?
