In the brain-addled haze of their group-think cheerleading session about “liberated” Egypt, morons on the left AND the right worldwide attacked me for correctly pointing out that Lara Logan’s rape at the hands of 200-300 Muslim men was a little taste of the “Islamic liberation” of Egypt she fervently cheered. But more and more is coming to light to back up exactly what I said. Since Barack Obama forced out Hosni Mubarak and the more extremist Muslim, pro-HAMAS members of the military and Egyptian populus (who take their cues from the Muslim Brotherhood) have taken over, they’ve been doing “virginity checks” on female protesters and sending many of them to jail. Mubarak never did that. But this is what they do when the Islamic inmates run the asylum and seize it from a pro-Western leader after he’s ushered out by Barack Obama (or Jimmy Carter, take your pick). BTW, as reader Worry01 points out, no virginity checks for the men. That’s Islam, and the glorious equality and liberation of the new Egypt. Hey, maybe, they were doing a “virginity check” on Lara Logan. No worries, though, as she still won’t acknowledge that this is the Islamic view and treatment of women. (On the other hand, faux-conservative Michelle Malkin just loooves this kind of thing–she absurdly defended a a Rancho Bernardo High School principal who checked girls at school dances to see if they were wearing thong underwear . . . in front of other students! Hellooooo . . . ? Don’t worry–if that happened to Veronica Malkin, a Fraudkin s–tstorm would erupt.)
Barack Obama-Style, Lara Logan-Pandering “Liberation” in Egypt
Oh, and they are moving to outlaw such protests in the future. Welcome to Barack Obama’s “liberated” Egypt . . . liberated of just one thing: a Western-allied leader who worked with America and Israel (and HAMASniks now serving as his replacement). Remember, this is the Egyptian military which stayed largely on the sidelines and didn’t do much to stop the protests because it went along with the plan to topple Mubarak. It’s the same Egyptian military now running the country and opening up the Gaza border to HAMAS arms (after it brokered the recent HAMAS-Fatah merger).
A senior Egyptian general admits that “virginity checks” were performed on women arrested at a demonstration this spring, the first such admission after previous denials by military authorities.
The allegations arose in an Amnesty International report, published weeks after the March 9 protest. It claimed female demonstrators were beaten, given electric shocks, strip-searched, threatened with prostitution charges and forced to submit to virginity checks.
At that time, Maj. Amr Imam said 17 women had been arrested but denied allegations of torture or “virginity tests.”
But now a senior general who asked not to be identified said the virginity tests were conducted and defended the practice.
“The girls who were detained were not like your daughter or mine,” the general said. “These were girls who had camped out in tents with male protesters in Tahrir Square, and we found in the tents Molotov cocktails and (drugs).”
The general said the virginity checks were done so that the women wouldn’t later claim they had been raped by Egyptian authorities.
“We didn’t want them to say we had sexually assaulted or raped them, so we wanted to prove that they weren’t virgins in the first place,” the general said. “None of them were (virgins).”
This demonstration occurred nearly a month after Egypt’s longtime President Hosni Mubarak stepped down amid a wave of popular and mostly peaceful unrest aimed at his ouster and the institution of democratic reforms.
Afterward, Egypt’s military — which had largely stayed on the sidelines of the revolution — officially took control of the nation’s political apparatus as well, until an agreed-upon constitution and elections.
