Video: Lara Logan tells her story on 60 Minutes

CBS News reporter Lara Logan was the story on 60 Minutes on Sunday night.

Let's go to the videotape.

Notice what she said set the crowd off? That they said she was an Israeli Jew. She described that as being like lighting a flame for them. What do you think these people - who have a peace treaty with us - would do to Israeli Jews if God forbid they were given a chance? Remember the Ramallah lynch? If they could have finished Logan - whom they believed to be an Israeli Jew - off that way they would have been pleased to do so.

So it was about Logan being a woman (and being blond) until they decided she was an Israeli Jew. Then it became about tearing her apart limb by limb just like those two Israeli soldiers. It was no longer about sex (if it ever was). It was about power. It was about tearing apart the infidel (Israeli) Jew. She is lucky to be alive.

Phyllis Chesler criticizes Logan for not referring to her tormentors once on the air as Muslims. Nor, writes Chesler, does she seem to blame them at all. In fact, Chesler finds Logan's description to be too politically correct.
With all due respect both for Logan’s terrible ordeal and for her choice to “break the silence,” how naive can she have been? How frightened is she still now? Does Logan fear she will lose her mainstream media credentials if she analyzes what happened to her in feminist and political terms?

I think she does. While she has told the truth about what happened to her, her careful, cautious, exceedingly politically correct presentation suggests that many hands were, once again, behind what she said and how she said it.

Logan was born in South Africa where the sexual violence against girls and women is extreme. She was born in Africa where gang-rape and rape have been employed not as a spoil of war but as a systematic weapon of war (think Rwanda, Darfur, Congo, Liberia). She is a reporter at a time in history when both infidel and Muslim women are routinely raped—then arrested for it, raped again by their jailers, then flogged, hung, or stoned for the crime of having been raped. Think Iran. Think Pakistan.

And finally, it is a well known fact that the male sexual harassment of women on the streets of Egypt is pandemic. One survey documented that 98% of infidel or foreign women and 88% of Egyptian women have been harassed on these mean streets. Thus, should women reporters not cover Muslim countries?

Guess what? Muslim men also rape Muslim and infidel boys as well as foreign male journalists whom they also torture and behead. (Think Daniel Pearl.) There is a long history of Muslim men kidnapping, enslaving, selling, branding, and castrating infidel men as well as selling infidel women as sex slaves.
Read the whole thing.

Yeah. Notice how the narrator is careful to point that "neither is true"? As if it would have been understandable, somehow, if either was true?

Really disturbing.

Also, Professor Miao, note that the "correspondent" dubbed a narrative of that part (@4:10) over Lara Logan's voice, so we didn't actually get to hear her own narrative nor her opinions on this topic. Who are these people?
