Latest on Logan assault: Crowd chanted 'Jew! Jew!'

From today’s Post:

“60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan was repeatedly sexually assaulted by thugs yelling, “Jew! Jew!” as she covered the chaotic fall of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in Cairo’s main square Friday, CBS and sources said yesterday.

A network source told The Post that her attackers were screaming, “Jew! Jew!” during the assault. And the day before, Logan had told that Egyptian soldiers hassling her and her crew had accused them of “being Israeli spies.” Logan is not Jewish.

Conservatives have been pessimistic about this revolution based on the gathered evidence regarding the cultural norms of Egypt. The anti-Semitic, anti-Israel plague in this society will affect this revolution’s outcome. It affected its eruption as well — the dictator Mubarak was seen as an Israeli stooge.

Forget the romantic notions of this being a democratic, liberty-first revolution, and talk about it. Because it’s the truth.

And keep Logan and her family in your thoughts.
