The people who attacked Logan were not from the “revolution.” They were Mubarak’s goons. Don’t taint the events of Jan and Feb with implications of anti-semitism. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this revolt is the relative absence of anti-American and anti-Semitic posters.

you have no idea who the attackers were.the world is not black and white and the people in egypt-as anywere else-are not easily defined as good or bad guys.could it be that the good guys are not always angels? or would that spoil your nice clean picture of the revolution?anyway-are you sure they were calling her a jew?

Marty Janner says:

Jew,Jew,Jew,is not the issue! These perpetrators defiled a young woman! This is the issue, regardless of what was said,in my opinion, their actions were deplorable, and not was said….
