Remember when Western reporters gushed about the Facebook/Twitter revolution taking place in Egypt’s Tahrir square? These credulous journalists were anxious to convince us, and themselves, that with Mubarak’s ouster — c/o Obama’s betrayal — a new, democratic Egypt was just over the horizon, whose leaders were young, hip and empowered by the new media.
The gang rape of Lara Logan, which did little to dampen Western delusions, was news for a brief moment, but that particular Islamic savagery was written off as universal male chauvinism. When more and more women were raped, beaten and abused, the Western press ignored or excused the entire issue. Much as they ignore the serial rapes of Western lefties by Palestinian terrorists in Judea and Samaria. The hatred of Jews and the Jewish state overrides all other considerations for those who identify with the international left.
Egypt, as Seraphic Secret predicted, is now a Muslim Brotherhood state, another failed Arab-Muslim state.
