Finally the New York Times is reporting on the sexual assault of women in Egypt. Of course, they have to qualify it and deflect blame from the Muslim Brotherhood by saying that sexual assaults took place during the Mubarak regime, but that the police kept it quiet. Lol. They're actually attempting to norm this brutal and bloody violence against women by saying that it happened under Mubarak, sort of -- it's just that nobody knew about it.
Still, they admit that after Mubarak left, so did the security police, and that since then, these attacks have gotten more brazen, more bold, and more violent.
There is an element of soft bigotry in the Times's low expectations of Egyptian men -- as if the understanding is that these men are savages. The Times speaks of these attacks as if they are to be expected. Urbane, savage media.
And the great tragedy is that the majority of these attacks are not reported, because the understanding is that these women deserve it -- because they were out and the Muslim Brotherhood government basically says that they brought it on themselves.
This is what we can come to expect from these Islamic governments that take over from secular governments. This is progress under Islam.
Even the New York Times headline is deceiving and dissembling. It's about who is to blame? Really? Who's to blame? The raping men. Who's to blame? The Islamic culture that sees women as sex slaves or property.

I’ve been to Egypt numerous times before “Arab Spring”. Never witnessed any violence in the open. Never heard if rapes were a problem.
The Five Pillars of Islam..
They know that their barbarian ideology allows them to rape women, murder gays, Jews and Christians. But because they have dark skin, they are given a free pass for all their insane savagery.
“The Five Pillars of Islam..”
or “The Prophet of Doom”.
