    Default Female Journalist Gang-Raped During Cairo Demonstrations


    A Dutch journalist was gang-raped by several men in Cairo’s Tahrir Square a few days ago, Egyptian media reported on Sunday.

    “A Dutch journalist in Tahrir was raped by men who dub themselves revolutionists. Her condition is severe and she is hospitalized,” reported Dina Zakaria, a journalist reporting for the Egypt 25 News.

    Egyptian opposition protesters celebrate on July 1, 2013 in Cairo’s landmark Tahrir square after Egypt’s armed forces gave President Mohamed Morsi 48 hours to meet the demands of the people or it would intervene with a roadmap. The statement comes a day after millions took to the street demanding that Morsi resigns. An official from Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood said the powerful movement was ‘studying’ the army’s statement. Egypt is deeply divided between Morsi’s Islamist supporters and a broad-based opposition.

    Meanwhile, a state hospital issued a statement that the journalist was admitted after being raped by five men several days ago. She underwent surgery and has been released. It was also reported that Egypt’s Prosecutor General Talaat Abdallah ordered his staff to go to the hospital to hear the woman’s story and reveal the circumstances behind the violent attack.

    Egyptian women face sexual harassment and assaults on a daily basis. During and after the revolution, there have been a number of case of foreign reporters who were sexually assaulted, such as Sonia Dridi and Lara Logan.

    Sexual harassment is not new within the conservative Egyptian society, yet the extent of this phenomenon has grown and become more violent and visible. The Egyptian law defines assault as a crime, but not sexual assault.

    As TheBlaze previously reported, hundreds of thousands of opponents of Egypt’s Islamist president poured out onto the streets in Cairo and across much of the nation Sunday, launching an all-out push to force Mohammed Morsi from office on the one-year anniversary of his inauguration. Fears of violence were high, with Morsi’s Islamist supporters vowing to defend him.

    The main headquarters of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood were also attacked as opponents pelted it with stones and firebombs until a raging fire erupted in the walled villa. During clashes, Brotherhood supporters opened fire on the attackers, and activists said three protesters were killed.,7...399041,00.html

    If this is common knowledge, maybe whoever is responsible for assigning these women to this country should be charged with something, too. I can't believe a woman would go willingly, well, just about anywhere in the Middle East...

    A camel has more rights than a women does in many parts of the Middle East.

    If I was a female journalist, you couldn't pay me enough to fucking go there.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box

    When I saw the headline, I was thinking "why would someone resurrect the Lara Logan thread?"

    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
