This material was posted by me in a thread focusing on what happened to Lara Logan in Cairo, but I thought it deserved a thread of its
The sexual assault on Lara Logan in Cairo has brought to light a hitherto unreported phenomenon connecting sexual harassment to the fall of the
Mubarak regime and pointing to possible involvement of intelligence agencies in that ouster.
The relevant information came from a website designed by Egyptian women to protect themselves from sexual harassment in the streets of Cairo. The
site, www.harassmap.org features a map showing the frequency of sexual harassment in neighborhoods of Cairo. Starting in November of 2010 there was a
dramatic upsuge of complaints registered by the website.
Seeing this graph, I began to wonder if there is another phenomenon shown here.
Could it be that politically motivated fake thugs went on a harassment campaign in Cairo, preliminary to the demonstrations against Mubarak, in order
to increase the level of emotional upset preparatory to taking to the streets? I wouldn't doubt it.
If this is what happened, it would be reasonable to suspect that these complaint statistics show the tracks of intelligence agencies at work.
It's the kind of thing, sneaky, dirty, that one would expect from some of our favorite three letter agencies, who have whole departments of well
trained hooligans thinking of such pranks and tactics.
One feature of the harassmap.org map is that one can call up the numbers of complaints for each month going back to 2004.
Here are the numbers from July 2010 to February 2011;
2010 July 5 complaints
February (to date) 219 !!!
I was thinking this might be a seasonal phenomenon in Cairo, but I checked the number for January 2010, a year ago, and it was only 4 complaints.
This phenomenon of a surge of harassment complaints must be connected to this political event. The worst of it is that for every complaint, there are
probably twenty incidents not reported.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt once wrote words to the effect that you can bet that if something happens in politics, it was planned.
This kind of
tactic, if that's what it is and it certainly looks that way, is the sort of thing one would expect from someone like Kermit Roosevelt, who organized
phony demonstrations against Mossadegh in Iran, prior to the overthrow of his elected government and prior to the assumption of power in Iran of the
US puppet, Reza Shah Pahlavi.
If harassmap.org received 429 complaints to date from the beginning of January, that means that the actual number
of incidents is far
Multiply January 2010's total of 4 complaints by 20, for example, to allow for a 20 to 1 incident to complaint ratio and you come up with 80
incidents. Then multiply the total number of complaints from November 2010 to February 2011 by 20, which would be 657 X 20 = 13,140
incidents" of harassment of women in the period immediately prior to the overthrow of Mubarak and up to 2 or 3 days following his resignation.
That's a veritable seige on the women of Cairo.
This sexual harassment surge is too "cute" to be unplanned. Who pulls these kinds of stunts? MI6, MOSSAD, the CIA.
