What is this -- international rich guy travel agencies extol New York in Spring as a wonderful place to do rape?
Egyptian Businessman Accused of Sexual Abuse at NYC Hotel
Accusations against former bank chairman echo those levied against Strauss-Kahn.
Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar, the 74-year-old former chairman of Egypt’s Bank of Alexandria, remained in police custody overnight on charges of sexual abuse, unlawful imprisonment, forcible touching and harassment, according to the Associated Press. His arraignment was expected later Tuesday.
The accusations against Omar, currently an executive at Egyptian salt producer El-Mex Salines Co., recall those levied against former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn earlier this month. Strauss-Kahn is currently under house arrest and faces a number of charges including attempted rape.
And meanwhile, back in Egypt:
Egyptian General Defends "Virginity Checks"
"We wanted to prove that they weren’t virgins in the first place."
“We didn’t want them to say we had sexually assaulted or raped them, so we wanted to prove that they weren’t virgins in the first place,” the unidentified general told CNN. “None of them were.”
Egyptian military officials had previously denied allegations that soldiers had conducted the "virginity tests" on women detained during a protest in Tahrir Square that occured nearly a month after Egypt’s longtime president, Hosni Mubarak, stepped down.
The allegations first surfaced in an Amnesty International report published in the aftermath of the March 9 protest. The report claimed that in addition to the virginity checks, a number of female demonstrators were also beaten, strip-searched, and threatened with prostitution charges.
More cringe-worthy comments from the general:
“The girls who were detained were not like your daughter or mine,” he told CNN. “These were girls who had camped out in tents with male protesters in Tahrir Square, and we found in the tents Molotov cocktails and (drugs).”
And as with Bibi Netanyahu, so with these Egyptian officials -- Fuck you and your warped sadistic idea of right and wrong.
The fact that in the post below, I made clear my opinion of Bibi Netanyahu -- doesn't mean I think the Egyptians are good guys -- that's the old Jane Fonda brainless equation, i.e., since we shouldn't have been in Vietnam killing people -- that was a bad thing -- she decided the NV military brass were nice guys.
Sorry dear, they were professionals, same as all warriors, and they killed people for a living, whether the cause was right or wrong.
The ONLY reason so many of us were behind her was not for her stupid politics, but to look at her cute butt.
