France 24 TV News Correspondent Sonia Dridi "Savagely Attacked" by Muslims Near Egypt's Tahrir Square

After hearing the horror stories of all the other women who have been attacked by Muslim men in and around Tahrir Square, we can only wonder when women are going to realize that it's simply not safe to be there. But as long as we always remember that Islamophobia is the real problem, everything will be okay.

PARIS (AP) - A correspondent for France 24 TV was "savagely attacked" near Cairo's Tahrir Square after being seized by a crowd, the network said Saturday. It was the latest case of violence against women at the epicenter of Egypt's restive protests.

The news channel said in a statement that Sonia Dridi was attacked around 10:30 p.m. Friday after a live broadcast on a protest at the square and was later rescued by a colleague and other witnesses. France 24 did not give further details about the attack, but it said its employees were safe and sound, though "extremely shocked," and that it will file suit against unspecified assailants.

@ Osama Abdallah,
Mr. Osama. When is CIA going to stop? Here is another case of CIA behind poor Moslems. All these moslems at Tahrir Sqare were actually CIA agents. All of you can find the truth at Even the people who gunned down Sajjad Hussain in Pakistan were CIA agents. Mr. Osama, we should not stop to expose the CIA. Mohammad has commanded us to love our neighbor as our selves as in Sahih al-Bukhari 6924—Allah’s Messenger said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: La ilaha illallah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and whoever said La ilaha illahllah, Allah will save his property and his life from me.”

Even Allah has commanded all of us, the moslems, to live peaceably with all men as we find in Qur’an 9:29—Fight those who believe not in Allah. Why can’t people understand such peaceful commands. What’s wrong with them. Allah also commands us to be friends with everyone especially Christians and Jews as we read in Qur’an 5:51—O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other. What is wrong with people these days that they cant understand clear teaching of the most noble Allah.

Only if people would learn how to read and understand English, even Arabic, that they would understand that these clear noble verses teach moslems to be peaceful. It is CIA that is making moslems look bad.

The global jihad's ummah (Muslim world) is showing the world that Shariah law is being enforced on the world's women. Non-Muslim women are fair game for abuse, rape, and murder when they step across the dhimmitude line. Shariah law is by and large enforced by the ummah after fatwas ("legal" edicts) are proclaimed by the imams at mosque.

It's interesting how the Western European cultures keep sending female journalists into situations where they have a disproportionate personal risk even compared to males who are obviously non Arab.

It's like they are sacrificing these women on an altar to their delusions. It doesn't matter that they keep getting attacked; they want the satisfaction of behaving in the manner one would behave in if the world really did operate the way they believe it does.

It's denial on the Nile.

And people still think getting rid of Hosni Mubarak was a good thing ?? Now Egypt has democracy for raping and molesting women, killing and getting rid of Coptic Christians and flushing human rights down the drain.

Well clearly it was her fault, she was not wearing the Hijab, if only she had been wearing the Hijab it would of protected her against Muslims

Radical Moderate said...

Anyone remember "Blue Bra Girl" she was the Muslima that was savagely beatin in Egypt by the Police.

She was wearing a abya and when the police beat her, the abya came off exposing her blue bra.

Although many Egyptians were appalled by this, the Al Noor party blamed the girl, they were more upset that she showed her blue bra during her beating then the fact that she was beatin.

"Non-Muslim women are fair game for abuse, rape, and murder when they step across the dhimmitude line."

Oh right so what was Sonia Dridi's excuse as a Lady WITH A Muslim background? Your ill-informed comments bare no relationship with reality. Try to develop more of an understanding of some of the 2 billion strong Muslim population before coming out with childish comments that wastes everybody's time.

Jesus is Lord said...

@Ot Mazeltov Are you honestly saying she got beat up because she was not wearing a Hijab? Who cares, you just don't beat women, period. It takes a Muslim's mentality to say something like that!! It is not surprising to hear about a Muslim beating a woman because Muhammad teaches that sometimes it's ok to Hit women.

Muslim like to see proof so here it is:

Narrated 'Ikrima: Rifa'a divorced his wife whereupon 'AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. 'Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah's Apostle came, 'Aisha said, "I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!" … (Sahih al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 72, Number 715)

Muhammad said:
[...] "The good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great".
Qur’an 4:34, M.H. Shakir Translation.

@ Yankie007,

NO i'm clearly NOT saying that AT ALL. If you were able to recognise those things called quotation marks at the beginning and end of the two comments I posted - you would realise that I was quoting comments made by other people on this blog.

My comments simply looked at how redundant the comments made by other commentators were on this incident since I was just simply revealing the fact to other readers that Sonia Dridi is Muslim herself and the incident itself was not simply a case of evil Muslim horde against non-Muslim girl. The problem of sexual harassment and sexual abuse transcends religion. And we could spend the rest of our lives talking about what each of the scriptures say - and attempt to rationalise it by saying oh well it says it here so this is why they do it in Levictus "man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them 20:13 KJV). Does that mean you should go out and kill people that happen to be Homosexual? Of course not. Just because the perverts that attacked Sonia may have been of an Islamic background it no way means that they know anything of their religion and particularly how they should treat women. To think that these people act in accordance with what it might or might not say in their scripture is at best naïve.

@ Ot-mazeltov You said: "To think that these people act in accordance with what it might or might not say in their scripture is at best naïve".
Are you saying that all the violence we hear through out the world: Terror attacks almost daily, suicide bombing, honor killing. Just this month, Muslims attacked and burned down 24 Buddhist and Hindu temples and 100 homes in Bandgladesh. Today, October, the 29th, 10 Christians are Killed in a Nigeria Church by a Nigerian Islamist militant group, Boko Haram. A suicide car bomber rammed into a church in Nigeria's northern city of Kaduna Sunday, All this violence and terror attacks are directly connected to the teachings of the prophet Muhammad. That is why we see Radical Jihadist group today like: Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, Pakistan Taliban, Palestine Islamic Jihad, Muslim Brotherhood, Nigeria Boko Haram, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Egypt Islamic Jihad & More, carrying since 2001, 19,840 Islamic Terror Attacks by Suicide bombing, Plane crashing on people, Burning Churches, Beheading, Apostate are to be killed, etc, all following the teachings of Muhammad in the Qur'an and Hadith. Do you want the sources, Surahs??

Otman A said...


Yes please! I'd like all the surah's and hadiths that says its ok to massacre innocent civilians, just because they're not Muslim. You only need to look at history to see the tolerance of Islam. At a time when 'tolerant Christianity' was massacring Jews and Muslims suspected of practicing their religion in medieval Spain, minority groups sought refuge and thrived in Islamic lands as seen with the culture of acceptance cross cultural borrowing that saw the likes of Jewish philosopher Maimonides and Muslim Averroes thrive. Please tell me about the Klan, who were Christian Terrorists that massacred and lynched many people in their time – other Christians in fact, just because they weren't from/or adhered to a warped Protestant teaching they kept of Christianity. Does that mean we are going to suddenly start saying that all Christians at the time were terrorists and ALL had it within them to create major acts of terrorism? So why casually rationalise that Muslims are likely to create mass atrocities as some people who claim to be Muslim create? And please enlighten me into what you have discovered during your vast research on what the Islamic scriptures say about massacring other Muslims? More of whom have been killed by 'Muslim' atrocities than any other group. You seemed to have left out in your comprehensive analysis of what Muslims are currently up to in Eastern Bangladesh – the horrendous acts that Buddhists are carrying out just across the border in Burma, massacring thousands of Muslims – seen a news story on that? wanna see some videos that show human beings are capable of doing the most vile things just because a community happens to be of another faith – this time adherents to Islam. The same acts were committed against Muslims by Hindu extremists numerous times with devastating effect in India throughout the 20th Century and still continues today in the 21st Century. How about the Screbrinica Massacre carried out against Bosnian Muslim Men and Boys by Christians? How about Jewish extremist Baruch Goldstein's massacre on the Ibrahim mosque that saw him kill 30 people in cold blood and injure hundreds more? There are numerous other examples that show other groups killing Muslims but no discussion on the atrocities being linked to guidance from scripture. The same should also be true of Islam. The cases you point out about Islamic Jihad, Hamas and Hezbollah should never be discussed in the context of senseless violence that we see being carried by other supposed 'Muslim' groups. And should only be viewed in the context of Israel's cantankerous endeavours in the occupied Palestinian territories and with its invasion of Lebanon in 1982, these groups only came into being recently and are a symptom of years of failed peace settlements that have seen the Palestinians constantly duped by their own corrupt secular institutions and a stronger Israeli side backed by the worlds only superpower. Some would say that the Palestinians and Lebanese have been quiescent for the inconceivable suffering they have experienced at the hands of Israel. I defy you to be humiliated in checkpoints on a daily basis and experience midnight raids and searches (activities that occurred way before the start of the call to arms during the Al Aqsa Intifada) and not decide on a more robust response.

@Ot-Mazeltov You requested some Surah from the Qur'an and Hadith:
These persons were quite innocent:
* If someone stops believing in Allah, kill him (al-Bukhari 9:84:57). A innocent person that change his belief, you find that logical to end his life by mudering him.

** Kill the disbelievers Jews and Christians (non-muslim) wherever we find them (Sura 2:191). If an innocent person don't accept converting to Islam and paying a high tax, you are to be killed.

Muhammad tortured an old man for his treasure:

The oldest extant biography of Muhammad is called the "Sirat Rasulallah" — "Life of the Prophet of Allah". This book was written by Ibn Ishaq, a devout Muslim scholar, and later revised by Ibn Hisham. It was written before any of the major works of Hadith. It is considered the most authentic biography of Muhammad. It was translated into English by A. Guillaume as "The Life of Muhammad". Page 515 reads:

"Kinana al-Rabi, who had the custody of the treasure of Banu Nadir, was brought to the apostle who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was. A Jew came (Tabari says "was brought"), to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going round a certain ruin every morning early. When the apostle said to Kinana, "Do you know that if we find you have it I shall kill you?" He said "Yes".

The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found. When he asked him about the rest he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders to al-Zubayr Al-Awwam, "Torture him until you extract what he has." So he kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead. Then the apostle delivered him to Muhammad b. Maslama and he struck off his head, in revenge for his brother Mahmud."

Deny it or not, all the violence, oppression, anti-semitism and discrimination by Muslims (Jihadist) in the Middle east, Africa, India, etc are all related directly to the teachings of Muhammad. Fact, Islam promote violence but cover it with a peace message. In Islam, you can lie and deceive people so I don't believe what you said earlier. I speak the truth from your sources: For instance, Al-Bukhari [compiler of the most canonical hadith collection] recorded that Abu Ad-Darda said: "We smile in the face of some people although our hearts curse them." Al-Hasan said, "The Tuqyah [or taqqiyah, deception on behalf of Islam] is allowed until the Day of Resurrection.'
