    Surely the thugs in question are more evolved, not less, since they exhibit behaviors more likely to reproduce in the current political milieu.

    Do you think any of the mainstream media will publish or provide commentary on this ugly event.Perhaps some of the women’s organizations might publicly condemn this attack on Egyptian women.

  • Brendan Doran

    I don’t think the good demonstrators have a fraction of support the thugs do…

    And the thugs have God on their side..

  • Sorry, but this is not just a bunch of thugs. This is Islam in action. The Koran says women are half the worth of men in testimony and other topics. They cannot leave their homes without a male escort. They are treated worse than dogs – which Muslims also hate. They stone women… But everyone knows this. And it is multiculturalism @ work. It’s the way of Islam & will exist – and be taught across the 1.3B person Muslim would. Until they have an Enlightenment.

    And progressives in America are more concerned with the likes of Pat Robertson.

    I’m with Alex. This is the real face of Islam which may be suppressed or kept out of view or overlooked here or there, now an then, but always rears up again from one end of the territory currently occupied by the ummah to the other. Sad to say, there is nothing much we can do about it. If is enough to stay focused on protecting our own interests.

    Are Clinton, the secret service, and rappers visiting over there?

    Copts, Jews and Women — all have suffered a great deal of violence in Egypt at the hands of representatives of that most tolerant and peaceful of religions.

    Why the quotation marks around the words “sheikhs” and “authorities”. These are not men falsely claiming religious authority. These are men who have religious authority. These men represent normative Islam.

    There is something very curious about the way these attacks go down. The women are groped and humiliated but not gang-raped. What is stopping the men from taking the attack to its natural conclusion? It seems that the attackers are acting under orders: this far but no further is allowed.

    Rape will bring blood vengeance, also opprobrium. Roughly correcting an immodestly dressed and acting woman will not..although in rural areas the affront against honor might bring violence.

    Yes, this is Islam not marginal thugs. The margins are the Liberals and democrats.

    The West conned itself this was 1989. And damn all the media that played along.

  • Is this true story?
