“…women have no need for their genitalia…” “…unless you are a whore”

This is a pamphlet put out by the supporters of Sharia Law (Islamic Law) in Britain which states that…

“…women have no need for their genitalia…” “…unless you are a whore”

The horror of female genital mutilation (FGM)
Women: Do You Have a Clitoris? Well… If you live in Britain.. you may not for long. Why? Because Muslim Men do not believe you should have one.

There is a Movement in Britain now by Islamic Muslim Men to force ALL WOMEN in Britain to undergo MANDATORY REMOVAL of the female genitalia. (Clitorechtomy)

footnote: This movement has already begun in the United States, as well.

* This will not ONLY APPLY to muslim women… This will apply to ALL WOMEN ! (Ban Islam)

This is a pamphlet put out by the supporters of Sharia Law (Islamic Law) in Britain which states that…

“…women have no need for their genitalia…” “…unless you are a whore”

Perhaps the women in Britain should start a movement for MANDATORY FORCED MALE PENILECHTOMIES for ALL MUSLIM MEN.

(Bukhari 5891 also Muslim 527)
Abu Hurayrah said: I heard the Prophet say: “The fitrah is five things – or five things are part of the fitrah – circumcision, shaving the pubes, trimming the moustache, cutting the nails and plucking the armpit hairs.”

(Reliance of the Traveller: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law)
(Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri)

“Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the clitoris (this is called Hufaad)”

I will also add there are fatwas on some modern scholars who have responded to the war that has been launched against female circumcision on the grounds that it is harmful to health.

“From the above it is clear that the circumcision of girls – which is the topic under discussion here – is part of the fitrah of Islam, and the way it is to be done is the method that the Messenger of Allah explained. It is not right to abandon his teachings for the view of anyone else, even if that is a doctor, because medicine is knowledge and knowledge is always developing and changing.”

FGM UK cases

An estimated 66,000 girls have been illegally mutilated in the UK, but no one has yet been prosecuted for this practice.

**Advisory: Graphic language and descriptions of a sexual nature**

London, United Kingdom – “After the pain, it was the screaming that I’ll never forget. It wasn’t just mine and my sister’s screams, there were so many other girls there – all being cut. I’ve never heard screams like that again and I don’t think I ever will.”

Aissa, from Mali, West Africa was just six years old when she and her one year-old sister were told: “We have to go somewhere.” The sisters were taken on a journey by the female members of their family, oblivious to the torturous destination that was waiting for them. Aissa and her sister were then forced to endure a depraved ritual, scarring them for perpetuity: female genital mutilation.

I ask Aissa, now 29 and living and working as a midwife in London, what she can remember of that day when she and her little sister arrived at the place they were taken to by their step mother. “Isn’t it ironic?” says Aissa. “That I can remember everything so clearly, like it happened yesterday, but that is only because the memories of the blood, the pain, the screaming will always haunt me, like a re-occurring bad dream.”

Aissa describes how her sister was taken away by a woman to “wait for her turn” while Aissa’s stepmother instructed her to lay down on a bed. Aissa did as she was told, as four women stood over her pinning her to the bed as another woman began to cut her. No anaesthetic was used to remove Aissa’s clitoris with a razor blade. Aissa explains that it doesn’t matter how tightly you are held down, your body instinctively convulses, which results in deeper and longer incisions.

“The pain is, well, it’s so difficult to describe to you what it is like. Imagine when you cut your finger, it’s a million times worse than that. But that doesn’t even begin to describe the type of pain that takes over when the part of your body that has the most nerve endings in it is cut away. Only girls who have been cut will ever know what that level of pain is like. I honestly thought I was going to die, and then everything went black.”

Aissa then tells me there is another reason why she will never ever forget that day. Almost whispering, she says: “It was the first time I had ever slept in a real bed; we had always slept on the floor before. I can’t remember how long I stayed in the bed, maybe one or two weeks until I was able to walk again.”

As you read this, vulnerable young girls (children in the majority of cases) across the world are being led to a place by their mothers, stepmothers, aunts and grandmothers where they will be subjected to physical and emotional pain like no other. That physical and emotional pain inflicted on them, on so many levels, will be and will stay at such an intensity, there are just no appropriate words to attempt to describe the young girls’ ordeals. To listen to another woman reflect back to the time she was betrayed by those whom she loved and trusted the most, through the most invasive, barbaric and brutal treachery, is only comparable to torture so extreme it just can’t be real, except it is.

Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), also referred to as Female Genital Cutting (FGC), is recognised internationally as a violation of the human rights of girls and women. The World Health Organisation says FGM also violates a person’s rights to health, security and physical integrity, the right to be free from torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, and the right to life when the procedure results in death. The United Nations, Amnesty International and UNICEF are just three of many organisations across the world working tirelessly to ‘consign FGM to history’.

The World Health Organisation has classified FGM into four types:

1. Clitoridectomy: partial or total removal of the clitoris, and in very rare cases, only the prepuce (the fold of skin surrounding the clitoris).

2. Excision: partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia (lips) minora, with or without excision of the labia majora.

3. Infibulation: narrowing of the vaginal opening through the creation of a covering seal. The seal is formed by cutting and repositioning the inner, or outer, labia, with or without removal of the clitoris. The seal is then cut open and stitched up again to allow for sexual intercourse and childbirth; hence the woman goes through repeated opening and closing procedures, increasing immediate and long-term risks.

4. Other: all other harmful procedures to the female genitalia for non-medical purposes.

Latest figures show around 140 million girls and women worldwide are currently living with the consequences of FGM. The latest statistical exploration from UNICEF states it is most common in western, eastern, and north-eastern regions of Africa. It is also prevalent in many countries in South-East Asia, Europe, North America and Australia. Despite it being illegal in Canada, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, France, Sweden, Switzerland, the US, Kenya, Egypt and the UK, Female Genital Mutilation is still widely practiced.

An utterly useless UK government

The Female Genital Mutilation Act 2003, introduced to close the loophole of the Prohibition of Female Circumcision Act 1985 (which permitted parents to take their daughters out of the UK to undergo FGM abroad before bringing them back) does not scare or stop those intent on mutilating our future generations. This act tragically fails to uphold the UK’s zero tolerance to FGM. There has not been one single prosecution of FGM in the UK, despite this abhorrent crime being outlawed in 1985.

Like any illegal practice, thriving ferociously deep and dark underground, it is impossible to be precise regarding the number of girls in the UK who have suffered and are currently suffering at the hands of this brutal and barbaric ritual. The UK charity FORWARD estimates from their research that 66,000 girls in the UK have been mutilated, while 24,000 girls under 16 are at risk from the most severe form of FGM in England and Wales. One would assume then, faced with this alarming calculation, that the British government would swiftly take action and act as a matter of uttermost urgency. That sadly though is just an idealistic aspiration of what should be happening. Our government, whose duty it is to protect its citizens, have adopted what can only be described politely as a pitiful and pathetic ‘attempt’ to safeguard and protect the thousands of children at risk in the UK. Utterly useless bureaucrats are depriving vital funding, resources, information, care and support to those desperately gasping for it.

If you search FGM on the Home Office website, the search results give little comfort or re-assurance to its victims, merely facts, figures and three telephone numbers. The Home Office re-directs most of the responsibility for the charity FORWARD to deal with. On the Department of Health’s website there are just seven search results for this ignored and neglected crime – none of which have been updated for over a year. The Home Office and the DofH refused to put anyone forward for interview to answer my questions on what exactly the British government’s approach is in dealing with the illegally practiced and prevalent FGM in the UK. They also refused to provide details on what measures have been and are being put in place to safeguard and protect the victims, how the illegal underground networks plan to be broken and how much funding has and is being allocated to fight FGM in the UK.

Quite why no minister is able to speak out to re-assure British citizens that the government are doing everything in their power to tackle the illegal practice of FGM in the UK is just mystifying. A standard statement was sent from both departments to attempt to provide a response. From the Home Office, Minister for Equalities and Overseas Champion for Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls, Lynne Featherstone says: “Female Genital Mutilation is an abhorrent crime and we are very clear that those found to practice it should feel the full force of the law. As a government, we are also working with UK and international agencies on the ground to help prevent women and girls being subjected to this practice.”

From the Department of Health, a spokesperson says: “We have written to the Royal Colleges of Midwives and Obstetricians and Gynaecologists about making sure we are doing everything possible together to eliminate this abusive and abhorrent practice and protect future generations of girls and women from harm. The current professional guidance highlights that NHS professionals have a clear duty of child protection if a doctor is approached to perform a mutilating procedure or if it becomes known to them that a child is to be taken abroad for that purpose.” Neither the Home Office nor the DofH provided details about the type of work they say is happening to protect future generations of girls and women in the UK from harm.

Saria Khalifa, the Youth Programme Officer for FORWARD, tells me the charity is extremely concerned about the British Government’s patchy approach to tackling FGM, which is failing to safeguard all children at risk of FGM who reside in the UK. She says: “The UK government has a duty to develop effective primary prevention measures particularly in London where FGM has become a growing concern. Additionally there is need for protection strategies that offer safety nets and specialist support to women and girls. There is no national action plan on FGM nor a strategy in place to engage key communities and key opinion makers on ending FGM. More importantly, the Government funding cuts which have hit the women’s sector very deepy, coupled with lack of a comprehensive strategy is making our work even more difficult and a greater struggle.”

The poisonous power of patriarchy

Female Genital Mutilation is without a doubt powered by the poison of patriarchy. In a FGM affected community, there is a fundamental belief that mutilation is the only way to initiate a girl into becoming a “good woman” ready for marriage and childbirth. The bitter irony is that the very process of FGM is achieving the exact opposite. Removing part of a girl or a woman’s anatomy, disturbing and forcefully changing the way her body is intended to function not only takes away her femininity, but biologically changes the composition that makes her into the woman that she naturally is intended to be. Women across the world are torturing other women to accommodate and appease an ideology and disorted history of male supremacy. FGM is practiced to satisfy the wishes of a patriarchal family structure, but in reality the men distance themselves from the procedure of the practice, maintaining a dominating presence in the “background” and are not concerned enough with the consequences to stop inflicting this depravity onto their daughters.

Despite the “cultural justification” that FGM “turns a girl into a woman” there is also the assumption that when she does become a “good woman” she needs to be appropriately controlled and oppressed. It is widely believed that removing parts of her genitalia reduces her libido and in turn makes her less sexually demanding, supressing the level of pleasure she is “allowed” to receive and sustain. It is not uncommon in some cases for a woman’s vulva to be stitched up, leaving just a small opening for urine and menstrual blood to pass through, before the woman is then re-opened for sexual intercourse and childbirth.

Aissa says it is not only the damaging physical effects that victims are forced to endure for the rest of their lives:”I still need to work on myself psychologically because of all the feelings of self-loathing I have towards my body. I am different and I look different – for a very long time I didn’t even feel like a woman. It was impossible to have sex, the pain was horrific and I have suffered with lots of urinary infections. Still now I find it so difficult to have any medical appointments, which is part of the reason why I wanted to become a midwife to help others who are like me.”

There are no cultural or religious justifications ever for mutilating another woman’s body. There is no endorsement of FGM in the Bible, the Tanakh or Quran. Charity Forward has published a research on FGM and Islam as many Muslim (as well as non-Muslim) communities tend to associate FGM with Islam. “Words like ‘sunna’ and ‘tahur’ used for FGM by Muslims erroneously endorse the link of Islam to FGM and brings the great religion into disrepute. All religions say God created human beings in the best forms and wanted them to keep the nature in which they were created. It is forbidden to make changes in God’s creation unless there is a compelling reason ie for medical reasons.”

Aissa recently returned to Mali to take the brave step of explaining to her father how the life she dreamt of living was cruelly snatched from her through the destructive and devastating consequences of the Female Genital Mutilation she endured. She tells me she wanted to make the visit to protect future generations of her family – to make sure they never ever have to suffer like she has. After many difficult and emotional discussions with her father, he has now promised Aissa that no other girls in her family will ever be mutilated again.

“And do you believe your father’s promise?” I ask.

Aissa pauses, then responds slowly: “Yes I do, what other choice do I have, but to have faith in those whom I love and trust the most?”

  1.

    1. You folks have to make sure you are heard – and you have to be louder than the islamists and their left wing supporters. To often the muslims who are genuinly concerned about the prehistoric behavior (and that is an insult to those from that era) of muslims and their ilk say nothing. You HAVE to STAND up – no one else can do this for you. Something that muslims do not seem to understand – respect is earned – not taken!!

    2. We don’t need feminism,we need rational thinking.Do you really think that this is an issue with misogyny?No,it’s not.,It’s issue with religion.People actually belive that god tells them to do stupid bullshit so they do stupid bullshit.We do not need feminists.We need rational thinkers and more atheists.

      1. Atheists have no reason to be good. That is no solution, rather God tells us life is precious and gives us a Good way to live in a bad world. Atheists only borrow their “good” from their own imagination or from a religion. It is not a smart path to take as it is literally a REJECTION of any moral objectivity therefore it is super selfish and prideful, which are close friends of lies and deceit.

        1. Gotta say Jeff, that’s absolutely not even slightly true. True moralistic value is based upon knowing for yourself what is right or wrong not the fear of punishment or promise of reward because somebody told you that “that’s the way it is”. If you believe that you are moral because of religion then you have truly missed the point of morality in the first place. Morality is doing the right thing purely because its the right thing to do. Religion has nothing to do with that.
          There is no appropriate comeback to this comment other than “Yes, I see what you are saying is true and I shall adjust my opinion to account for that” or else you are a lost case and I shall no longer converse with you.
          Have a good day.

        2. Then who determines what is right and what is wrong? The almighty Rob? Your view doesn’t work toward civility (What is civility to you, btw?) within a multitude of cultures or ideas as it is fact that we all have different finger prints. We may at some point agree what is right and wrong, but that doesn’t mean it will always be beneficial to us as a whole or as individuals.

          I’ll quote Michael Chrichton (as if he was speaking of a science of right and wrong, which the bible is and claims to be, which atheists have no competition nor any valid comparison within their construct of moral objectivity – or lack thereof):

          “Consensus is the business of politics. …There is no such thing as consensus science. If it is consensus, it is not science. If it is science, it is not consensus. Period.”

        3. Your comment is breathtaking in its stupidity and ignorance. Religion does not own morality, you only have to read the stupidity and hideous stuff in the bible and Qur’an to know this. Thankfully civilisation has moved on and our morality has moved way past bible recommendations as to how we should live, for example today we would not endorse a rape victim being made to marry her rapist, as is said in the bible.

        4. Athiests adhere to moral principles because of an innate morality. Theists refrain from objectionable activities only because of threat of punishment and are therefore morally deficient.

    3. I think the reason they use no anesthetic etc is the intention is to brutalize the child. To inflict such intense pain she won`t ever forget it. Also Muslim women have no voice in Islam, if they disobey their husbands they can be beaten.
      If their husband is instructed by his Imam to circumcise his daughter and tells his wife to take her, if she refuses, she is brutalized.
      It`s the whole culture that needs to be critiqued and brought with the laws of the UK and the international laws on human rights.
      They breach them in the name of a so called religion.

  2. Dhimmi Britain will most likely comply in the not so distant future. The US is right behind the UK. We are being fed to the walking dead of islam by out govt. and the infinitely stupid but highly educated (indoctrinated) left.

    1. Mazie you are so right -everyone is scared shitless by Islam -it is an arab invasion based on a bogus belief system stolen from all the other belief systems that existed thousands of years before arabs even had goats-if islamic values were upheld,they wouldn’t have Dubai, Bahrain and all the other opulent centers while their ‘brothers’ live like shit

    2. Mazie you are being taken in by right wing idiots who are using mental terrorism to scare you into voting against your own interests, and to vote for conservative lies which lead to lower taxes for the super rich, with the burden of their tax breaks falling to us to make up for the US Gov’t shortfall ! ! It may be true that these horrible things are being done, and prosecutions should be pursued vigorously, BUT it is NOT AT ALL TRUE that any such intent by this asshats is going to be passed into law ! ! Likewise, in the USA, this will never be passed into law, can you seriously believe it would be? Remember all the uproar about “Death Panels” in Obamacare? There never were any, there never were any plans for any, there was NOTHING like that proposed Ever in the bill. It was all made up crap to get people deceived into voting against something that might cost the big insurance companies some money but which would (and DID) save thousands of American’s lives by given adequate care to those who had none before ! ! !

  3. If they were concerned about what God thinks, they have no right or business to take it on themselves to injure and mutilate a girl or woman when GOD GAVE THEM THE BODY THEY HAVE so their body can bear children in a healthy way. God hates those who hate and torture women. If penises were being removed and cut off with rusty razor blades the men would object. It’s the same difference. This is not circumcision for medical need – it ONLY evidences hatred for females. There is no moral, ethical or medical justification for this. It is evil and is the Devil’s way of controlling humans to keep them from the real ability to love as GOD INTENDS.

    1. These bastards should have there genitalia removed in the same way and the law should be vigorously applied in rooting this out.

      Mary , may I remind you of how vicious, warring and hateful God is portrayed in Genesis I? What about the Bible story where God had Jephta fry (burned alive) his only child and daughter as compensation for the victory He gave Jephta? These bastards are not nearly as vicious as your crazy “God”.

      1. What do you speak of in Genesis? Otherwise, this is the lesson you so deeply didnt understand about jephthah (You should learn the truth of what’s in the bible before you make partial and misapplied claims, for what you’ve done is very damaging.).

        Rejection is not the end. With humility and trust in god, we can come back. We should never let our pride get in the way of serving God. Jephthah made a rash vow, that God did not require, and it cost him dearly. Samuel, the last of the judges, later said, “Does the lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.” (1 Samuel 15:22, NIV)

  4. What are these men afraid of obviously women. The men that continue to push their archaic thinking and mutilation of females are cowardly to say the least. Sharia Law is an archaic religious law, not a law relating to state, therefore has no legitimate place in the legal running of a country. Sharia Law is against the laws of the state, therefore, illegitimate and unlawful.

  5. So, Muslims, you are admitting that your version of God, Allah, made a mistake when he created women with genitalia? Then you are admitting that Allah is not all-powerful, omnipotent and perfect, as is God!

    1. Exactly. God is a creation of man. Read Genesis I to discover the true nature of this so-called “God”.

    2. Or they are a bunch of cocksucking homosexuals whose hatred of women is evident and …and only allow women to live in order to create more cocksucking homosexuals…..only because goats can’t birth a child ….

  6. How disgracefull these poor girls put to tourture and their femininity stripped all because of the bullshit non relegion of islam fucken barbarians !!!! all MOSLEMS should be shot!!!!!!!

  7. This filthy-demon-driven-spirit of lust is an abomination to all civilized peoples….whether paedophilia, homosexuality or rape islam is a cancerous curse on society…it’s out of controlled men filthy perverts, dirty pigs, my apologies to the pigs…without shame or decency and they reckon the West would be better off under sharia…what a lie, It goes with the culture, but “lying arabs”is not allowed now because of political correctness, but it found it’s way into our venacular based on facts and experience… who do they think they are kidding.?..The more I study about this perverted 7th century mindset of arabian desert dwellers and their false prophet moh’d the more convinced I am that islam does not need “scholars” but rather mental health nurses and phychiatrists would be more meaningful for the cultures and an army of Christian exorcists wouldn’t go amiss, after all moh’d sought one on the occasisons of his epyleptic seizures when he confessed to being demon pocessed and when he got his “messages” from the moon god of medina.

  8. Summary of New Testament Quotes about women

    It is good for a man not to touch a woman, so that he is not tempted to “immorality” and does not “defile” himself. Men are the “heads” of their wives and the “glory of God,” whereas the woman is merely the “glory of man.” Man was not created from woman, but woman from man. Women must be submissive in everything and subject to their husbands, who, again, are their “heads.” Women should not speak in church but must remain subordinate and learn in submissiveness. No woman can teach or have authority over men. Girls and women must be “trained” to love and to be sensible, chaste, domestic and submissive to their husbands.

    Quran has similar provisions.

    “Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them.” Quran 4:34

    Summary:
    Menstruating women are unclean, and men must stay away from them. Women are men’s “fields,” and men can have sex with them whenever they want. Men are superior to women and have authority over them, while women must obey men or risk being beaten. A woman is worth one-half of a man. Muslim men can own sex slaves.

    References of summary above in NT:

    The fact remains that the male-dominant patriarchal religions, such as Judaism, Christianity and Islam, require women to be in an inferior position.

      1. I agree with you. However we still have these barbaric mutilations that is apparently justified by a proper reading of the Kur’an. Misogyny is part of the Muslim culture, justified by the Kur’an, hence the reason why I find religious expression the root of all evil.

        Also take note that we have large Muslim populations in the West and until it is addressed by legislation like we have adopted in our Constitution in SA and other legislation to give effect to the dictates of our Constitution, women will remain vulnerable. It is also imperative that women themselves must claim these rights and shed their humiliating acceptance of Sharia Law. I am a firm supporter to liberate women, but without their own inputs men can only do so much.

    1. It has nothing to do with male-dominant patriarchal religions,,,because even without religion men will always dominate women. Your beef is with religions in general and not against the real evil which is Islam, which means you pushing your agenda as an atheist. True Christianity following Jesus’ words believe that men and women are equal in God’s sight.

    2. Read the WHOLE bible before making your comments in relation to the bible, then you will actually be fully informed by what the bible says in old testament AND new testament.
      The fact you only provide the above ‘quotes’ in relation to the Holy Bible means you are not well informed and/ or support the degradation and abuse of women and just did a google search for a verse to support your way of thinking.

    3. Johann, learn from the bible in it’s own context and you will see it differently, reject those ideas that are worldly and then you will properly understand it. This idea is on sensitivity for example:

      Sensitive Definition: In this context, sensitivity means the tendency to be quick to take offense or be offended; touchiness; hurt feelings. (Sensitivity also has a good meaning, that of being sensitive, or attuned to, the needs and feelings of others.)

      1. Sensitivity is a symptom of pride; we’re hurt and our ego is deflated when others point out our mistakes.

      Proverbs 11:2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame, but with the lowly is wisdom.
      Proverbs 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
      Proverbs 29:23a A man’s pride shall bring him low.
      1 Timothy 3:6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the Devil.

      2. Sensitivity shows we’re not really holding onto the Lord and His Word.

      Psalm 119:165 Great peace have they which love Thy law: and nothing shall offend them.
      Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee.
      Isaiah 32:17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
      Philippians 4:6,7 [If something bothers you, give it to the Lord in prayer, and He’ll give you peace in its place.] Be careful [anxious] for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

      3. Sensitivity takes things personally, and ends up believing the Devil’s lies and becoming discouraged.

      Proverbs 23:7a For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.
      Jonah 2:8 They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy.
      Zechariah 7:10b Let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart. [See also 8:17a.]

      4. People who are easily offended are not very strong and pretty unspiritual.

      Proverbs 14:17a He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly. [See also 16:32; James 1:19.]
      1 Corinthians 3:1,2 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

      5. Sensitivity makes it difficult to receive counsel, thus hindering training and spiritual growth.

      Proverbs 4:13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.
      Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.
      Proverbs 15:31-33 [Being open to other’s ideas shows humility and true greatness.] The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise. 32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding. 33 The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
      Proverbs 19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
      Ephesians 4:15 [Being honest with each other brings growth and progress.] But speaking the truth in love, [you] may grow up into Him in all things, which is the Head, even Christ.
      Hebrews 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

      6. Sensitivity hinders honest, open communications, undermining our relations with others.

      1 Kings 18:17,18; 21:20 [Proud, disobedient and sensitive King Ahab falsely accused Elijah the prophet of being an enemy and a troublemaker, because he spoke up to the king with God’s message of correction:] And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? 18 And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim. 21:20 And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And he answered, I have found thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the Lord. [See also 22:8,27.]
      Galatians 4:16 [Paul said to the brethren in Galatia:] Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
      Proverbs 9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
      Proverbs 18:19 A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
      Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
      1 Corinthians 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

      7. Persistent sensitivity results in losing our usefulness.

      Psalm 81:11,12 But My people would not hearken to My voice; and Israel would none of Me. 12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels.
      Proverbs 15:10,32 Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die. 32 He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
      Proverbs 28:13a He that covereth his sins shall not prosper.
      Isaiah 30:9-11 [Here is the end result of unbridled sensitivity and unwillingness to receive correction:] This is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: 10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: 11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
      Matthew 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? It is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. [See also Mark 9:50; Luke 14:34,35.]
      Matthew 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

      8. As good soldiers in the Lord’s army, we need to learn how to “take it.”

      2 Timothy 2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
      Matthew 16:24,25 Then said Jesus unto His disciples, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for My sake shall find it.
      1 Corinthians 15:31b I die daily.
      2 Corinthians 5:15 And that He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again.
      Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me.

      9. The Lord can help us overcome sensitivity if we are determined to change.

      Psalm 138:8a The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me.
      Proverbs 13:18 Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured. [See also 15:5.]
      Proverbs 25:12 As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
      1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
      2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
      Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
      Hebrews 12:1b Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.

      10. We all need to safeguard one another and “be our brother’s keeper.”

      Leviticus 19:17,18 [Love will correct others rather than grow bitter or angry at them.] Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise [surely] rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him [not share in his guilt]. 18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the Lord.
      Proverbs 28:23 [Honesty pays.] He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.
      Matthew 18:15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.
      Luke 17:3-5 [Safeguarding one another takes a lot of love and faith!] Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. 4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt forgive him. 5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.
      Galatians 6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
      Ephesians 5:21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.
      Colossians 3:12,14 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved … humbleness of mind. … 14 And above all these things put on charity [love], which is the bond of perfectness.
      2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
      Hebrews 3:13 Exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
      1 Peter 5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

      11. The more we fight sensitivity, the less sensitive we will become.

      Job 17:9 The righteous also shall hold on His way, and he that hath clean hands shall be stronger and stronger.
      Psalm 141:5a [Great King David humbly prayed to be able to receive correction well:] Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head.
      Proverbs 4:18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

      12. Pray for the right kind of sensitivity: sensitivity to the Lord’s Spirit and the needs of others.

      Romans 12:15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
      Romans 15:1,2 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
      1 Corinthians 12:25b,26 The members should have the same care one for another. 26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
      Philippians 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
      Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

        1. I don’t see how this doesn’t relate to the topic. Conversely, denying bible study may very well keep these women who have these troubles from getting help by way of a Christians charitable spirit, which may very well start with mine and others’ passing on of that knowledge. These problems these women face can be highly benefited by someone’s adequate knowledge of the Bible’s principles on sensitivity/ love. Consider that the Bible’s teaching also may be the one and only true way of understanding the matter with righteousness. Alas, I will respect your rule, though, with great doubt and sadness.

    4. 1 Peter 3:7 NASB

      You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman; and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.

    5. LOL if your gna quote it at least quote it word for word:

      Chapter 4, verse34:

      Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand.

      Being critical of a religion is your freedom. Deliberately misleading people is not.

      Have a nice day!

  9. This barbaric tribal act is downplayed in western countries perhaps, because , many of the leaders, and media owners, are jewish !! who also have a medieval religious cruel practice, also on baby boys !!!???

    1. Is that a blood libel coming from an anti-Semite ? Blaming the Jews ? Which of these countries are you suggesting that have Jewish leaders ? Using the media bias crap ? Have you been listening to the mainline news with their overwhelming biase against Israel ? It has been medically proven that circumcised males are free of a certain genital virus that affect women with cervix cancer. It has also been scientifically proven that circumcising of Jewish boys at 8 days after birth is the safest time in their life since the blood circulation is at the lowest ebb. Read “None of these Deceases” by S. I. McMillen.MD.

  10. FGM is such a bigger problem than anything that could be carried out by Sharia Law. The VAST majority of the problem is in Africa. It is a problem that has been around for a very long time, but everyone is so outraged against Islam because of the atrocities being committed by ISIS that we see in the news everyday it is shining a spotlight on it. Hate all Muslims if you want (just remember that the extremists are not only terrorizing and beheading people of all other faiths, statistically they are doing more of it to their own), but if you are really disgusted by FGM focus your anger – and activism – where it belongs. The number of women mutilated by Muslims is a drop in the bucket. Of the roughly 140 million estimated to be subjected to this, 133 million are in Africa and it has nothing to do with the Muslim religion.

    “UNICEF reported in November 2014 that prevalence rates for sub-Saharan Africa were 39 percent for women and 17 percent for girls aged 0–14; for Eastern and Southern Africa 44 and 14 percent, and for West and Central Africa 31 and 17 percent.[5] As of 2013, Egypt, Ethiopia and Nigeria had the highest number of women and girls living with FGM: 27.2 million, 23.8 million and 19.9 million respectively.”

    1. Africa as a whole never practiced FGM until the Arab Muslims forced their religion on them. African people were historically a very hedonistic society, their women are frivolous and can have more than one husband…their men allow this. Their ancient lifestyles glorify women as objects of beauty and worship. The queen of Bathsheba is African and African men do her every bidding. The Muslims then invaded Africa and forced their loathsome hatred of women on them. FGM was then introduced by the Muslims following the teaching in the Hadiths of Mohammed and in the Koran. The Arab Muslims also started the slave trade of black Africans selling them to Eurpoeans and Americans. Although the western world has stopped slavery of black people by a strong Christian push against it. The Arab Muslims still practice black slavery even today.

  11. Rabbi Lewis Browne.

    “The Bible is a whole vast world of wisdom, beauty, and moral truth – but it is not a chronicle of literal history. Its episodes and chronicles were in the mouths of desert tribesmen for long centuries before ever they were written down. For long centuries they were passed on from father to son, growing grander and more wonderful with each generation. So that by the time they were set down in writing, the literal truth in them, like the vein of gold in a mountain, was crushed and tortured and broken in a thousand places.”

    These “episodes and chronicles,” however, did not represent the exploits of “real people” but of mythical characters, many of whom symbolized celestial and terrestrial bodies and forces.

    1. Monsters masquerading as mothers, their minds twisted by the immoral vicious cult that is islam.

  12. Carole, master of “phylosophy”, haven’t you got a spellchecker?

    what exactly is it that clitless Muslim females get in Muhammad’s afterlife?

  13. Johann,

    You pathetic and sad apologist! You clearly lack the moral courage to call out violent behavior towards woman for what it is, but hey, at least you got to glow in your self righteousness whilst trying to find cultural comparatives that did not even come close.

    Nothing you have posted has any relevancy to young girls having her body tortured and mutilated TODAY. Powerless woman and and young girls bodies are being mutilated because some arsehole is uncomfortable with her female sexuality and is hiding behind a religion.

    Sad little man with a sad little arguments.

    Translation: the jews said vile things about woman 3000 years ago…..and two thousand years ago the Christians said horrible things about woman…so, like its all the same as Muslims who cut off a part of a woman’s body in 2015. It’s like all the same man.

    The lies we tell are self.

    1. I think you misread me. I am well known for expressing myself on misogyny and FMGM in my lectures at the university were I was Senior Lecture in law. So much so that I had been reprimanded by the Muslim Council in Cape Town, which I of course ignored. I’m not an apologist like William Lane Craig. I hate mysogany found in religious expression.

      1. May I ad that I represnted a Muslem women when I was admitted as advocate in the HH. I am now retired because I could. It is important to note that she had to submit an affidavit on my insistence not to seek her rights under Sharia Law, which I submitted to the court in limine proceedings in fear that her parents would force her to have the case judged on Sharia principles. We were successful and I still receive e-mails from her expressing her gratitude. I could not get myself to ask her whether she had undergone FMGM in our consultations. When I lectured students I would unashmedly explain this horrible practice. And who walked out during these lectures? Muslim female students. I suspect that she is now secular in her thinking. The Rector had been approached by the Muslim Council about my lectures and he reminded them that University Education is in essence about discourse and that as an advocate it is well within my duties to address social injustices.

        1. Sorry guys: women = woman and HH = HC. My iPad has a habit to suggest alternatives and if I overlook it, it plays God and do as it pleases.

    2. “2000 years ago Christians said horrible things about women” ? Can you please show us who said those horrible things 2000 years ago, which year and quote the Christian (s) who said it. Just spewing out unproven claims is like a person grasping about in the darkness. Either provide evidence or shut up.

  14. The root of the problem would seem to be religion and the continued justification of evil deeds by zealots in God’s name.

  15. The Government position is deceptive.

    They know laws forbid FGM but wait until a case comes forward.

    What is so hard about-

    a) Informing the nation that it is illegal and any parents found to have a child who has been subjected to FGM will be jailed and their assets taken to fund victim support.
    b) To commence a programme of checkups for ALL schoolgirls in the at risk groups – school nurses, GP’s and Hospital staff as well as for adult women who attend GP/Hospital.

    It is not good enough to sit back – the victims could easily be identified and their parents and the people who carried out the FGM brought to book.

    The deterrent effect would be MASSIVE and those who seek to escape the country should be left to go – and never return.

    This can be done – why isn ‘t it?

  16. Religion aside. Nobody seems to consider the parents, esp. mothers aunt and grandmothers, who allow and perform these barbaric acts. How can they think that this is ok to do to thier daughter. How can they believe that it is what thier god, (any god) would want for his children.

    1. because they have been brainwashed and indoctrinated with these traditions and ceremonies , rituals. and have most likely had it done to them as a child

  17. This cruelty against women has to be finished immediately! It is unimaginable that this “Tradition” is allowed in our time!

  18. Why, if there is such a thing as a GOD, that made the universe, the heavens the earth , the everything including humans, being such a divine and superior intelligence, would that God create a flawed human body with parts that are not needed. No this is purely a cultural preference for males generally of eastern background

  19. Islam needs to be outlawed globally as a cult of hate for its crimes against humanity. Circumcision is a crime against humanity, annually cutting your baby, toddler and child’s head to offer a blood sacrifice during Ashura Celebrations is a crime against humanity, selling little boys as sex slaves called Baca Bazi Boys is a crime against humanity, selling little girls into marriage is a crime against humanity, so many more terrible deeds done in the name of a cult of hate in honor of a false god they call Allah which is nothing more than the Dog Star and for which we all know a star is nothing but a giant ball of gas on fire are all crimes of ignorance against humanity. It is utter insanity that sane societies are tolerating this madness within our cultures as if it is “normal” when it is not “normal” to do such wickedness to fellow human beings. It is time to stop the pain and time to say “no” to ignorance and time to outlaw Islam.

  20. im going to put this as simply as i can. female genital mutilation is wrong, its cruel. its nothing than an excuse to deny women sexual pleasure and give men complete control over their womens lives.

  21. Forced genital mutilation is abuse, male or female. Let them decide for themselves at 21 like tattoo`s.

  22. This abhorrent , vicious and inhumanly cruel practice; this terrible crime enacted on innocent children by those they love and trust, starkly illustrates the barbaric nature of the world wide curse that is islam.
