The Conversion of Lara Logan

Since being sexually attacked in Egypt, journalist Lara Logan now seems to recognizes that the real problems of the Middle East are not caused by the here and now of Palestinian suffering.

  1. As an active member of the Republican Jewish Coalition, I encourage all Jews to vote responsibly, not patriarchally. Just because your relatives were devoted Democrats since FDR doesn't mean you have to follow. It wasn't on your birth certificate! Go to http://www.RJC.ORG and read the facts. Then vote! Mazel tov!

    Good blog post.

    What an awful way to have woken up to reality….but at least she did and I wish her well.

    They should never had send a woman there, when you look at the crowd , there are only men !
    and certainly not a blond girl with tiny jean and a t-shirt .
    Even under normal circumstances , women not clothing themselves in Islamic way are harassed in the streets .

    Actually, she has ALWAYS been fair. The author of this should have checked Ms. Logan's pre-attack reports from any country, including the few she has from Israel. I had seen many… I am yet to see one that was not fair… The woman was always realistic and capable to think for herself. Liberal but not arrogant or blind… Far out liberals always accused her of being too concervative.
    In fact, from what I am seeing… the attack has NOT changed her views.. Which is very cool: she swore once that it will not change her, as it would give too much power to her attackers. She had always been a defender of the underdog, but she is not fixed in where she expects to see the underdog. I heard she really has an awesome personality too. I wish her well. I wish her very well.

  6. She was assaulted because she was blonde, young and white. Nothing else matter. Political correctness is nonsense, all blondes in Scandinavia get raped because they are blondes… That's something the Jewish person can't understand… because he is driving all the lies of political correctness. You told Lara Logan she was safe among them, so she didn't know better. She believed political correctness.

    Egypt since that day have turned into a "rape-cracy"… that was what the Medias said was about democracy. The reality was that the rape was all that would remain from the Arab Spring. It was the Rapist Spring.

  7. The Jewish Person understands how racist and ignorant you sound. There is no excuse for rape on any level. The fact that they rape blonde women in scandinavia doesn't mean its acceptable ????

  8. Secondly…. as for the Jewish Political correctness… When you are finished berating my people, I would appreciate if you could simply look at the province you live in. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

  9. Btw next time you want to make an ignorant and prejudicial statement keep it to yourself.

  10. I've known you in real life Michael Stadtlander, if you don't remember me too bad, I do you. We known each others through the Port of Montreal.

    So let me answer you with a VERY CANADIAN song

  11. If you want more vain details, it's the stupid ass early Metallica. Am I Evil, yes I am.

    This one for men with pussies… you know… if you don't get our virility. Am I evil, yes I am?

    We Catholics are thankfully above this. We are not judaised like the feminized WASP. We are the NUMBER ONE HATE GROUP in the world, that is our Vatican you know, we are so scary. Accept Jesus or die, it's hard to digest right, Am I Evil, Yes I Am.

    You control all the medias, all the banks and all our politicians, but you need to kill us all you know, those with a mind to think you s, cause Jews are just juice as far as I get it, they are not cum. All cum is sexist and racist. Got to fear our sperm you .

  12. Anyway, you are JUICE, we are the ones that produce the mixer. So stop pretending you can make juice. You're just evil, cause you're juice.

    'So for example when reporting on the Israeli Palestinian conflict she would have probably focused on the plight of the Palestinians'.

    'Probably'…what the does that mean?
