See no evil...

When prompted about the incident, the Ministry of Interior stated they received no formal complaints. I don't deny their claim, which if anything is testament to the people's complete lack of faith in the security apparatus, but what is infuriating is the knowledge that the police were there, at the scene, witnessing the carnage, and decided to do nothing. But in their defense, the perpetrators weren't chanting against Mubarak.

Anyhow, Dream TV apparently did a story. The coverage is mild at best; mere mention of the incident and a few brief eye witness accounts. I’m hopeful the story will pick up more steam, perhaps even encourage a nation wide awareness campaign that will eradicate misogynistic attitudes…!

Ps. Video is in Arabic and was posted by Wael Abbas

"misogynistic attitudes towards women" is linguistically redundant.

You're right Zoss, thank you.

It was also featured on Al Qahira Al Yawm yesterday. Maybe there's hope yet?
