Egypt: Violent Sexual Assaults On Women Escalate, Protesters Fighting Back! (Video)

What vile, putrid, and disgusting behavior!

Women protesters in Cairo are being targeted, surrounded, and sexually assaulted by large groups of men.  And the problem is escalating.  The attacks are preplanned, organized, and the attackers are armed.

Egyptian grassroots media organization, Mosireen, is fighting back.

The Washington Post reports,

Egypt’s protest movement has a problem, one that has been getting worse in recent months: sexual assaults. Ever since crowds in Tahrir Square brutally assaulted CBS News reporter Lara Logan, just days after the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak, sexual assaults have been a dark side troubling the popular protest movement. Though attacks on foreign women have been the best-publicized – and some activists do say that predators in the crowd sometimes seem to target foreigners – it’s a serious problem for Egyptian women as well.

As protesters gather in mass numbers once more in opposition to President Mohammed Morsi’s recent decree granting himself sweeping new powers, activists are getting more aggressive in preventing sexual assaults. This video, put together by the invaluable Egyptian grassroots media organization Mosireen, explains their methods and reasoning. “The most important step in preventing an attempted assault is to first reach the girl,” an activist tells Mosireen. “You have to do it calmly and without making any violent moves until you’ve reached her. Try to stay calm, try not to shout, try as much as possible to calm her down and secure her because she’ll be panicking and afraid of everyone around her.”

A doctor at one of the Tahrir field clinics that has aided assault victims explains the attackers’ methods, which seem to be eerily consistent. “Most of the time they form a long chain moving together, their hands on each other’s backs like a train,” he says. “They push into the crowds of protesters and they pick particular people – foreigners or Egyptians – they start surrounding them and then the assault starts. They attacked the girls. They ripped off their clothes and sexually assaulted them. I’m so disgusted, I feel a huge sense of guilt because we weren’t able to get to anyone. I’m trying to help in any way I can.”

It’s too bad the women don’t have guns to protect themselves.  But, if they did, Bob Costas might have another rant in the middle of the next football game.  A wise friend once said, “You can tell the health of a nation by the way they treat their women and their Jews.”  Egypt fails on both accounts.

    Egyptian grassroots media organization, Mosireen, is fighting back.

    A little note: “fighting back” doesn’t just encompass shielding victims or pointing out the abhorrent behavior; resistance has to be in the mix as well, and potential victims arming themselves would be a logical choice.

    I just read somewhere the sex attacks are organized by the Brotherhood to discredit the anti-Morsi demonstrations in the foreign press. I’ll try to find the link.

    Also, Obama’s sending Hillary to Egypt to mediate the ‘crisis’. But probably , actually, to keep Morsi in power.

    I find it bizarre how women here tend to vote liberally for woman’s rights, but when it comes to women being tortured in other country, they don’t bother to stand up for their fellow sister’s rights. Strange how women don’t have basic rights in the countries that Obama freely sends millions in funding too. And yet, Barry is the feminist’s superstar?

    Here’s Obama trying to save Morsi’s butt…

    Has Obama condemned Egyptian women for over reacting to his bestest pal dictator Mohamed and his degenerates?

    Lara Logan wasn’t raped, she wasn’t there on the night Mubarak fell,
    and the mobs that attacked Anderson and other reporter groups were
    Mubarak gangs, not the freedom and democracy youths, all of this was
    documented way back when..

    Lara Logan

    Anderson Cooper

    wow, way too many previously posted links have been “disappeared”.. :-(


    CBS’ Lara Logan slams “Taliban apologists” in
    Washington, says Obama administration lying

    [“I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand, that there is
    a major lie being propagated . . .” Logan declared in her native
    South African accent.

    “There is this narrative coming out of Washington for the last two
    years,” Logan said. It is driven in part by “Taliban apologists,” who
    claim “they are just the poor moderate, gentler, kinder Taliban,”
    she added sarcastically. “It’s such nonsense!”

    Our enemies are writing the story, she
    suggests, and there’s no happy ending for us.]

    Thank You Lara..

    Code Pink where are you? Come all you Dems and Liberals, where are you? Here’s a REAL war on women and I don’t hear one single peep out of any of you. Oh, I forgot, you only care about women getting free birth control and having the open option at all times to kill their unborn children.

    CAIR Targets Morsi/Brotherhood Critics

    [Pro-Muslim Brotherhood forces attacked protesters of Egyptian
    President Mohamed Morsi with rocks and clubs in Cairo Wednesday.


    Several oceans away in Tahrir Square, Egyptian women see things
    very differently. They charge that the Brotherhood is “paying gangs
    to go out and rape women and beat men” protesting Morsi’s policies.

    Female protesters in Tahrir Square provided harrowing accounts of
    sexual assaults they say were carried out by thugs on the Islamist
    group’s payroll.

    A protester identified as Yasmine said she had been at Tahrir Square
    for several hours filming a recent demonstration when she was suddenly
    surrounded by 50 men who grabbed her breasts, ripped off her clothes
    and assaulted her. Men who tried to come to her rescue were beaten
    away by the mob, but she eventually managed to escape. Yasmine
    suffered internal injuries and was unable to walk for a week.

    A journalist named Afaf el-Sayed said that while protesting at the
    square just over a month ago, she was attacked by a group of
    men she claims were “thugs from the Muslim Brotherhood.”

    While the frequency of these assaults is unclear, “activists have
    reported nearly 20 attacks in the last ten days and say there has
    been a dramatic increase in mob sex attacks in the past year,”
    the British Daily Mail reported Saturday.

    Writing in the Egyptian newspaper al-Arab al-Yahm, journalist Fathi
    Khattab charged that Brotherhood militias were behind recent attacks
    on other prominent Egyptians, including a recent beating of former
    presidential candidate Abu al-Ezz al-Hariri.]
