My thanks to so many readers who were concerned about Seraphic Secret’s silence since last Tuesday. I have been ill with some sort of flu or bronchial infection.
The sexual assault of journalist Lara Logan is horrifying, haunting and prophetic.
There are two issues in the Logan sexual assault which speak in a highly concentrated way to what’s happening in the Arab Muslim world.
1. Lara Logan was sexually assaulted by not one man, not two men, but by dozens. In short, this was a collectivist attack on a single, vulnerable woman. Islam, like the left, is a collectivist movement. Individuality is devalued in favor of a tribal identity. Hence, the pan-European Muslim rape gangs who view western women as deserving of rape.
2. The verbal justification for the sexual assault and torture is that Logan was a Yahud, a Jew, and, naturally, an Israeli spy. It’s worth noting that in Iraq, American soldiers are also labeled Yahud by the locals.
Logan is not Jewish, but that hardly matters to the Islamists who assaulted her. They just needed the label to justify their barbarism.
Look, when you have leftist monomaniacs like Roger Cohen and Thomas Friedman of the New York Times, and Nazi collaborator George Soros blaming Israel for all the ills of the Arab world, then it only makes sense for Arab Muslims to feel perfectly comfortable in using rape as a political weapon against Judaism. Afterall, the left has excused, justified and enabled homicide bombing against Jews so why not rape?
We have been here before.
When the Bolsheviks unleashed their murderous pogroms against the Jews there were dozens of Jewish Communists who patiently explained that “Jewish treachery” was responsible for the pogroms.
The Western left are once again blaming “Jewish treachery,” AKA Israeli policy, for the genocidal intentions of the Arab Muslim world.
Lara Logan is just the latest “Jew” who’s to blame for the murderous frenzy of an Arab Muslim lynch mob.
More details have emerged of Lara Logan’s terrifying ordeal at the hands of a frenzied mob.
The 39-year-old foreign correspondent for CBS News show 60 Minutes was separated from her film crew in Cairo on February 11 and surrounded by as many as 200 men in Tahrir Square at the height of the anti-Mubarak demonstrations.
According to one source, reported in The Sunday Times newspaper, sensitive parts of her body were covered in red marks that were originally thought to have been bite marks.
After further examination they were revealed to be from aggressive pinching.
It has also been revealed that she was stripped, punched and slapped by the crowd, which was labelling her a spy and chanting ‘Israeli’ and ‘Jew’ as they beat her.

Make no mistake about it, the sexual assault and torture of Lara Logan are coming attractions for the new Egypt.
As Legal Insurrection reports, the Yuppie revolution is over. The blood-thirsty Jew-haters are in the process of seizing power in Egypt.
And the indispensible Barry Rubin explains that Egypt has welcomed back its very own Ayatollah Khomeini.
Pop Quiz: What would constitute a coherent and rational American response to the events unfolding in Egypt?
Answer: Not one penny of American aid to Egypt if Islamist Caliphate parties are components of the new power structure. If the Egyptian people are determined to elevate Jew, Christian and American-haters to positions of power, then the American tax payer will cease their generous support of this backward country.
It’s that simple and that complicated.
