Latest From Obama’s Arab Spring

The testimony of women assaulted in Tahrir Square in recent weeks is shocking.

One report documented by an NGO concerns a woman whose genitals were lacerated using a bladed weapon during another assault.

On the internet, you can even see mobile phone footage of women in the square during demonstrations suddenly being surrounded by dozens of men, and carried away as they are groped and assaulted.

“People who pretended to help were actually harassing me more,” says Shorouk al Attar, who was seriously assaulted with her sister close to the square during a protest last year.

    So who is carrying out the sexual assaults in Tahrir Square?

    “If you are here and you see a girl dressed in an indecent way, what are you going to do? You can’t help it.”

    So said one of a group of young Egyptian men, hanging around close to the square, when we asked about the increase in sexual assaults against women there.

    “We are depressed, we can’t find jobs and money, what do you expect?” says another of the youths, who was unsurprisingly reluctant to give his name.

    Ah yes , the thoughtfull , loving and kind muslim religion . Encouraged by their leadership to show compassion and to be mindfull of the beliefs of others . What , you mean it says in the muslim holy book that you should kill those who don’t believe like you do ? And you can treat women worse than you do a dog ? Hey , but don’t eat pork !
