Boy! Am I impressed with these devout followers of religion, whether the sexual attacks are being paid for by the Muslim Brotherhood folks, or not!

Thank you for posting, Agnes.

This is a very similar modus operandi to what the Muslim Brotherhood was doing earlier to women who came to Tahrir square to protest. This is a terrible and injurious attempt to inflict shame onto women. Obviously this would not be done by the supporters of human and women's rights. This is more likely the work of the Muslim Brotherhood and/or the Salafists. I applaud the rescue squads. Maybe from this kind of organization will come unity against the MB and the ability to organize politically against the Islamists.

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, read and shared. This is a common technique used by terrorists to control the population. Later, the rapes happen in an attempt to eradicate a group of people by impregnating women on the enemy side; thus, stopping the purity of the ethnic group. The only reason this can happen is women are valued so lowly that they are used to control the opposition. Barbaric, but often effective.

Thanks for the story, Agnes. Sadly, sexual abuse of women seems to be in the DNA of many Egyptian men

Noted, so much for the Koran, and muslims rape, murder and try to force their sick ideas on others

‘"All of the cases were really, really bad," Mortada told the Guardian. "But the worst case that we dealt with involved a bladed weapon being used on the private parts of an assaulted woman." OpAntiSH treated 16 women, while Tahrir Bodyguard, another rescue group, helped nine, making a total of 25 – with the two teams hearing reports of at least nine more.
This week, a woman raped near Tahrir Square in November published a harrowing online account of her experience.
It is not certain who is behind the attacks, but OpAntiSH believes they are organised by those opposed to the protests. "We believe they must be organised, because they happen most of the time in the exact same spots in Tahrir Square and they use the same methodologies," Mortada said, adding that the testimonies OpAntiSH had collected were similar to accounts of attacks in 2005 thought to have been instigated by secret police.’
When I was in South Korea, I heard information like this. It haunted me very much and hurt very deeply. I never understood how a man could get his kicks doing something like this. This is a very serious misogynist—hater of women—trait.
Despite Eve’s fallen status, our God still loves women very much. God was very good to Sarah, Hannah, Ester, Ruth, and many more women of Old Testament. God even refers to his gentiles’ Christian church as the “Bride of Christ.”

Attacks on and subjugation of women follows the rise in Islamic radicalism as night follows day.
