Lara Logan's TV Testimony

Lara Logan was on the American programme 60 Minutes last weekend. No, I did not watch it, although I did write about Lara Logan back in March.

From Israel National News, comes an insightful column from a woman who did watch Logan:


by Prof. Phyllis Chesler

Unbelievably, Logan was careful not to use the words “Muslim” or “Islam.” She refused to characterize what happened to her as “barbaric.” You will disagree.

I watched Lara Logan on CBS’s Sixty Minutes this week.

She was blonde, beautiful, brave, tearful, soft-spoken, strong, clear, eloquent, still obviously traumatized (who wouldn’t be?) — and yet, although she has been praised for “breaking the silence” about the sexual violence that afflicts female or foreign journalists in the field, Logan was still careful not to use the words “Muslim” or “Islam.” She still refused to characterize what happened to her as “barbaric.”

In her own words: She said that two to three hundred pairs of hands, one after the other, grabbed at parts of her body, and kept raping her non-stop. The mob had torn off all her clothing and the more she screamed the more excited they became.

When someone yelled that she was an “Israeli, a Jew,” the frenzied mob turned murderous. They continued to beat her with flagpoles and sticks. They tried to tear her apart, limb from limb. They were tearing her muscles in every direction. They tried to tear her scalp off her skull. She believed that not only was she going to die but that she would die a long, slow, torturous death.

This went on for 25 minutes.

I would call this “barbaric,” “monstrous,” a lynching-in-the-making.

Logan did not....

islam is dangerous no matter how it is packaged.

the twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.

see the links in the pdf version below for more accurate info about islam

islam is a horrible ideology for human rights

5 key things about islam

1. mythical beliefs - all religions have these (faith) because its part of being a religion: having beliefs without proof until after the believer dies. the problem is people will believe almost anything.

2. totalitarianism - islam has no seperation of church and state: sharia law governs all. there is no free will in islam: only submission to the will of allah as conveniently determined by the imams who spew vapors to feather their own nests. there are no moderate muslims: they all support sharia law.

3. violence - islam leads the pack of all religions in violent tenets for their ideology & history: having eternal canonical imperatives for supremacy at all costs and calling for violence & intimidation as basic tools to achieve these goals.

4. dishonesty - only islam has dishonesty as a fundamental tenet: this stems from allah speaking to mohamhead & abrogation in the koran which is used to explain how mo's peaceful early life was superseded by his warlord role later.

5. misogyny - present day islam is still rooted in 8th century social ethics: treating females as property of men good only for children, severely limiting their activities, dressing them in shower curtains and worse.

conclusions ??

there really are NO redeeming qualities for this muddled pile of propaganda.

islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.

I agree with the previous poster[ecks why].
Political correctness is a form of willful ignorance.

I have faith in the New Testament revelation of God but I also believe that between Ms. Chesler's commentary and eck's words on the evils of Islam posted here there is great truth available for anyone who cares to read.

As Ms. Chesler said in her original article, they have declared war on us - but politically correct multi-culti westerners are in denial.

I don't foresee singing Kumbaya and celebrating diversity with the likes of the demonic hordes who assaulted Lara Logan...perhaps we can appreciate their diversity with drone missile attacks and Special Forces operations.
