Mona Eltahawy, Islamist Savages and Rapist Beasts

Islamophobia, as Robert Spencer points out, is so complicated. Islam is now a race and calling bigoted murderers, “savages” is racism. Mona Eltahawy is calling herself a “Proud Savage” now and there’s a place for proud savages. It’s called Egypt.

Mona Eltahawy called her Egyptian jihadi attackers “beasts,” but spray-painted sign that called jihadis “savages”

An Egyptian-born U.S. columnist was arrested Tuesday for spray-painting an advertisement equating Muslim radicals with savages at a New York City subway station.

“This is non-violent protest, see this America” Eltahawy said in the video as police officers were arresting her. “I’m an Egyptian-American and I refuse hate.”

Mona Eltahawy was sexually assaulted in Tahrir Square in Egypt during the so called ‘freedom’ protests in 2011. In the video above, with her arm in a cast, she gives her weepy testimony to the assault she experienced and calls her Muslim sex assaulter’s [sic] “wild beasts finding their prey…

But why does Mona Eltahawy have to stick around this racist country anyway? She doesn’t want to live in Egypt, but she complains when Americans celebrate the death of Bin Laden or call Muslim terrorists “savages”.

The United States is full of Muslims who hate America but don’t want to live in their own native countries because they have more freedom here. Like them, Mona Eltahawy wants the local freedoms, but she doesn’t want to respect the freedom of other people. Islamists don’t respect other people’s freedoms. If they don’t like something, they vandalize it. Mona Eltahawy has predictably done the same thing. And the only reason she seems to have left Egypt is that she found out that she’s too weak to play the game there. So she went to play the game of intimidation here.

Mona Eltahawy is being defended by Stanley Cohen, a notorious lawyer and sympathizer for Hamas terrorists. That says it all.

    Did she really complain when the US celebrated the death of bin Laden?

    I celebrated. Joe Biden celebrated. Obama celebrated. Heck, everyone celebrated but the people really on the wrong side.

    Say, Glenn Greenwald and people of that ilk.

    They probably did not celebrate and have been telling us since then that killing him was murder and being glad about it is morally disgusting.

    To hell with them.

    I remember at the shooting range in the months after 9/11/01 you could, and pretty much everybody (me included) did, buy cheap paper targets that were large pictures of the face of bin Laden.

    We were all very pleased and amused to be able to shoot him to pieces, at least in this symbolic way.

    I'll bet she's complaining about civilian casualties of drone attacks, too, and detention at Gitmo, and the president personally ordering use of a drone to kill the American Jihadist al-Awlaki.

    All of those things seem fine, to me.

    I voted for Obama in 2008.

    And I will again, just a few short weeks from now.

      Obama is a supporter of Islamists and Muslim Brotherhood types. He may not have had Bin Laden killed , where's the body? He even has them in his Whitehouse-Houma Abedin for instance. If you vote for him you will be bringing Jihad on yourself pretty soon. The jihadis will be very pleased to shoot you to pieces in a real non symbolic way for the crime of slandering Osama Bin Laden pboh. Oh and by the way, the jihadis wont let you surrender, they'll shoot you anyway.

        there is no sense in arguing with a fool.

  • Jeffrey Imm

    Mona Eltahawy has done more to work towards peace, respect, and dignity for our fellow human beings and their human rights, than all of the people on this web site combined. Daniel Greenfield's claim that Mona Eltahawy "doesn't want to respect the freedom of other people" is a slanderous comment and completely UNTRUE. As to her defenders, you can also count me in. In defense of human freedom, she has been beaten and raped. Only a coward would call her someone unwilling to support human freedom. All my life I have rejected terrorism, extremist views, and of course terrorist groups. But this type of hatred and contempt towards others shows that those consumed by hatred are no different than the extremists they claim to be against.

    • Rosie

      She was wrong with the spray paint and should be held accountable for such churlish action. Behaving like a fool does no good for any political platform she writes about. It's just plain stupid behaviour.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      So you don't consider suppressing other people's views to be disrespecting their freedom?

      Poor Mona is suffering from the Stockholm syndrome after her vicious rape by the Muslim Brotherhood in Tahrir Square. What's your excuse for defending jihadis?

      • objectivefactsmatter

        "Poor Mona is suffering from the Stockholm syndrome after her vicious rape by the Muslim Brotherhood in Tahrir Square. What's your excuse for defending jihadis?"

        Exactly! She was attacked universally for her remarks after being raped. It seems like peer and social pressure caused her to modify her expressions of loyalties for the sake of her own sense of well-being.

        The whole thing is just a joke to anyone who can see the whole picture.

    • Jeffrey Imm

      Yes there were plenty of people who supported Mona Eltahawy's support for Muslim women's human rights in her article 6 months ago in Foreign Policy – but now she rejects the use of "savages" as an attempt to incite Muslims, now she is a horrible person to these same people. Nonsense. Too many writers are not genuinely concerned about Muslim's women's rights and human rights. They are just use these issues as an excuse to demonize Muslims.

    Daniel, I usually like your point of view but this is pretty low. Getting beaten and raped is no joke; there is probably a price on her head in Egypt. She is a journalist and not a saint, but I don't think she is a poster "girl" for all the Islamic people who came to the US to use the amenities and push for sharia…rather she is more in the tradition of those who seek asylum genuinely in the US. There are probably better Middle Easterners to dump all over.

  • patience kates

    I think most of the pro-mona here is in denial. We have a growing problem, common sense has been replaced by political correctness . She very much would like to see sharia law here. She very much would like you to see islam as a race. She very much would like you to be talking about her actions and NOT what she was trying to eliminate from your view.

  • sue

    You're right. Being beaten and raped is no joke. I think her actions speak very loudly. I think she's unhinged.

  • infideltaskforce

    Eltahawy was charged with vandalism. Plain and simple. Just a misdemeanor.
    If I was the booking officer, I would charge her with assault as well. Spray painting someone is assault in my opinion.

    America free of Arabs would be America free of terror.
