John Guardino of ‘The American Spectator’ scores one lonely point for sane conservatives - Lara Logan NOT attacked by Muslims
Unlike Jim Hoft, Pamela Geller, and the rest of the psychotically irresponsible and untrustworthy conservative blogosphere, The American Spectator’s reports an inconvenient truth about the attack on Lara Logan: It was not Muslims who attacked her.
In fact, it was pro-Mubarak thugs:
But in fact, we can say with near certainty that the thugs who violently abused and violated Logan were anti-protesters sent into the streets by Mubarak precisely in order to disrupt and discredit the Egyptian uprising.
How do we know this? Simple: by following the sequence of events and listening to independent and fair-minded journalists who were on the scene at the time, and who thus can speak authoritatively about what happened.
4. On Friday, Feb. 11, the day Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak relinquishes power, Logan is attacked, savagely beaten and sexually violated by a vicious, anti-Semitic mob. She is later saved by a group of Egyptian women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers.*
In short, this attack was not the offspring of the “new Egypt”; it was the rabid reaction of the “old Egypt.”
And these were not “Muslims” who did this (chapter 5, verse 2 of the Qur’an says: “do not let your hatred of a people incite you to aggression”). These were barbarians.
And it is important for us to make this distinction, because despite what you hear in some conservative circles, our struggle is not against Muslims and the Islamic religion; it is against Islamists and Jihadists who pervert Islam for their own depraved and illicit purposes.
