Lara Logan, chief foreign correspondent for CBS News, was beaten and raped in Cairo during a thirty minute assault by a frenzied throng of over 200 Egyptians. According to a report in today’s New York Post, Logan’s attackers were shrieking, “Jew! Jew!,” while they assaulted her.
It appears that hatred of Jews may be the untold story of the uprising in Egypt and untold places elsewhere.
The Jawa Report is talking about the Huffington Post ignoring the antisemitism angle of this sad story.
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.
Horrible story. Even more tragic are the abusive comments heaped on her by her own peers and commenters on news articles. Outrageous.

The U.S. sent a Navy P-3C Orion aircraft to assist in search and rescue operations. Britain sent HMS Bulwark. Strangely, Egypt initially rejected offers of assistance:

IOL—Rescue efforts appeared to have been confused. Egyptian officials initially turned down a British offer to divert a warship to the scene and a US offer to send a P3-Orion maritime naval patrol aircraft to the area. The British craft, HMS Bulwark, headed from the southern Red Sea where it was operating, then turned around when the offer was rejected. …
More than 1000 lives were lost in the disaster IOL said.

El-Nashar, who studied at North Carolina State and Leeds University, was being interrogated by Egyptian authorities, the official said. [. . .].
