On Friday, Feb. 11, the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a “60 Minutes” story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy.

In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently home recovering.

There will be no further comment from CBS News and correspondent Logan and her family respectfully request privacy at this time.

  1. The News agency’s will turn a blind eye to their Arab friends behavior.

    Remember when the news media was patriotic?

    In the 1940’s, the American media never made excuses for German behavior.

  2. The News agency’s will turn a blind eye to their Arab friends behavior. She’s been given the same treatment the Arabs give Israel day in and day out. Israel is supposed to make cooing noises and concessions following any attack on them. Maybe thats what they’ll do to her?
    The attitude of the US government is’nt much better.
    Obviously, she was accused of the crime of being a Jew.

  3. The reason Muslim women are covered from head to toe, is to prevent the Muslim men’s savagery that is uncontrollable.

    The truth is that Muslim men are WEAKLINGS — and are not expected to ever be anything other than weaklings.

    Self-control may not be the essence of manhood,

    but if it isn’t,

    then it most surely is the FOUNDATION STONE upon which any true manhood is constructed.

  4. Where is Noah??????

    There will be no Noah this time around. Mashiach ben Yosef will protect Israel from all of the hypocrits, and he will lead us in a war to utterly destroy Amalek. And Mashiach ben David will be there to return Israel to its former glory.

  5. “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth…..” (Gen 6:5-7a) Where is Noah??????

  6. Ellen you are correct .Did the westerners covering the debacle expect any different ?.From day one all westerners were spies or zionist agents.
    Egypt under Mubarak has led a life of duplicity — at the diplomatic level an element of politeness but at the street/ news level one of consistent anti Israel[semitic]/ zionist sentiment. Egypt is not interested in real peace with Israel because of loss of face with the other islamics.
    Its a real shame because it could have lead the way to a real peace. If we cant trust Egypt why should Israel trust the Pallys?

  7. I feel bad for her on a personal level. However, she had no business taking this dangerous assignment. The reason Muslim women are covered from head to toe, is to prevent the Muslim men’s savagery that is uncontrolable.

    CBS News has been on the Obama Train for some time now, and the news is all lies. I do not watch lies on TV. And now Lara has eaten the truth that CBS was hiding. Arabs cannot handle democracy.

    Where are Arab books that teach love thy neighbor as yourself?

    Will CBS call for investigation as it was done to Israel by the Rachel Corrie story??

  8. Nagla Al-Imam: Sexual harassment… In my view, the [Israeli women] do not have any right to respond.

    The speaker is a dyke telling you her own fondest fantasies regarding Israeli women.

  9. Egyptian lawyer: Arab Men Should Sexually Harass Israeli Women

    Rape Them

    Interviewer: Egyptian lawyer Nagla Al-Imam has proposed that young Arab men should sexually harass Israeli girls wherever they may be and using any possible method, as a new means in the resistance against Israel.
    […]
    Interviewer: We have with us the lawyer Nagla Al-Imam from Cairo. Welcome. What is the purpose of this proposal of yours?

    Nagla Al-Imam: This is a form of resistance. In my opinion, they are fair game for all Arabs, and there is nothing wrong with…

    Interviewer: On what grounds?

    Nagla Al-Imam: First of all, they violate our rights, and they “rape” the land. Few things are as grave as the rape of land. In my view, this is a new form of resistance.

    Interviewer: As a lawyer, don’t you think this might expose Arab youth to punishment for violating laws against sexual harassment?

    Nagla Al-Imam: Most Arab countries… With the exception of three or four Arab countries, which I don’t think allow Israeli women to enter anyway, most Arab countries do not have sexual harassment laws. Therefore, if [Arab women] are fair game for Arab men, there is nothing wrong with Israeli women being fair game as well.

    Interviewer: Does this also include rape?

    Nagla Al-Imam: No. Sexual harassment… In my view, the [Israeli women] do not have any right to respond. The resistance fighters would not initiate such a thing, because their moral values are much loftier than that. However if such a thing did happen to them, the [Israeli women] have no right to make any demands, because this would put us on equal terms – leave the land so we won’t rape you. These two things are equal.
    […]
    I don’t want young Arab men to be interrogated. I want these Zionist girls with Israeli citizenship to be expelled from our Arab countries. This is a form of resistance, and a way of rejecting their presence.

    Al-Arabiya operates out of Dubai, UAE, and is heavily subsidized by the Saudis — two American allies. Just for the record.

  10. She went was in that square with that mob looking for trouble. Then she found trouble and became part of it.

    Just another naive white woman caught by a gang of black Islamic apes.

    I feel no sympathy for any of them, and almost none for her either.

  11. Note how the primitive jihad ape cannot control its primitive and savage jungle urges: “Ugh! See blond woman! Rape, rape, rape, uh uh huh!” This reinforces the fact that, while you can take the ape out of the jihad, you cannot take the jihad out of the ape.

    A lot of Christians in America, like Vinson Filyaw, have these same urges.

  12. – Producers of South Park said Thursday that Central removed a speech about intimidation and from the show after a warned they could be killed for insulting the Prophet… Anjem Choudary hated muslim extremeist has claimed he is proud to receive 25000 a year in benefits from the British taxpayer because the money belongs to Allah. Muslim Anti-war protesters hurled insults at homecoming soldiers in Luton yesterday A Muslim anti-war protest which marred a parade for soldiers returning from Iraq was today branded insulting and sordid.
