The Mona Eltahawys and Wael Ghonims and Sandmonkeys have much to answer for. They blocked (as in football) for these savages. And Obama? This is his legacy no matter who writes this history books. He owns the deliverance of secular Muslim countries into the hands of Islamic supremacists and jihadists. Decades of pain and suffering will be his lasting legacy.
After the assault, which took place near the Qasr al-Dobara Church that is used as a field hospital in the current protests, the women ran to the nearby Mugamma administrative building in Tahrir Square, the Al-Ahram journalist present wrote about the incident.
Their assaulters followed them there, but the employees of the building closed the doors to block them out. Dozens of other demonstrators, who had been holding a sit-in in the square, then beat the assaulters with sticks and rocks to disperse them, and took the women to their tents in the center of the square.
The report said the Al-Ahram photographer could not take pictures of the women being assaulted, as the assaulters threatened to destroy his camera.
Incidents of sexual assault have been increasingly reported during protests in and around Tahrir Square during the transitional period.
