Egyptian Preacher: Raping women protesters in Tahir Sqare Justified. They go there to get raped
An Egyptian Salafi preacher said raping and sexually harassing women protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square is justified, calling them “crusaders” who “have no shame, no fear and not even feminism.”
In an online video posted Wednesday, Ahmad Mahmoud Abdullah, known as “Abu Islam” and owner of the private television channel of “al-Ummah,” said these women are no red line.
“They tell you women are a red line. They tell you that naked women -- who are going to Tahrir Square because they want to be raped -- are a red line! And they ask Mursi and the Brotherhood to leave power!,” he said.
Abu Islam added that these women activists are going to Tahrir Square not to protest but to be sexually abused because they had wanted to be raped.

4. Yeah, this whole Arab Spring thing seems like a bad idea.
It probably would have been better to back old Hosni and crush the rebellion.
Did anyone really think this was going to foster a culture of enlightenment? What these animals did to Lara Logan and others should have told us where this was heading.
It was a bad idea to take out Saddam and these other "revolutions" are just as bad. Not one of these places has become more favorable to us or even their own citizens and not one of them has brought more stability to the region.
It's one gigantic fail.
