American Spectator's John R. Guardiano distances himself from anti-Muslim conservatives and reminds us that "we can say with near certainty that the thugs who violently abused and violated Logan were anti-protesters sent into the streets by Mubarak":
[She was] saved by a group of Egyptian women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. In short, this attack was not the offspring of the “new Egypt”; it was the rabid reaction of the “old Egypt.” And these were not “Muslims” who did this (chapter 5, verse 2 of the Qur'an says: “do not let your hatred of a people incite you to aggression”). These were barbarians.
A reader writes:
There is a Facebook page for Egyptians to condemn the attack on Lara Logan. It stands as a firm rebuke to the likes of Debbie Schlussel and Pam Geller who would use this brutal assault as an opportunity to foster blind hatred. I found myself in tears as I read some of the comments posted to the wall.
