Swiss imam “not an advocate of female genital mutilation but…”

There are no ifs and no buts.  All of it is intolerable. All of it is criminal and inhuman. All of these savages have to be exposed, charged and shipped out and back from whence they came. 

“I’m not an advocate of female genital mutilation but I am an advocate of female circumcision.”

Ouch!

Islamic Central Council of Switzerland (ICCS - CCIS) president Nicolas Blancho holds a press conference in front of a poster against an upcoming cantonal vote on banning face-covering headgear in public places reading 'Please don't lock me up' on September 18, 2013 in Lugano. Ticino will become on September 22 the first Swiss canton to hold a so-called 'anti-burqa' referendum. Although the initiative does not explicitly target Muslims--the phrasing to be voted on is 'nobody in public streets or squares may veil or hide their face'--it is directed against the burqas and niqabs. Political commentators say the initiative has good chances of being accepted.

It does. It really does. That’s why we can’t be under Islamic law.

The organisation released an “Islamic legal opinion” this week arguing that a form of so-called “female circumcision”, involving the removal of parts of the genitals, is justified, Swiss newspaper Tages Anzeiger reports.

IZRS Secretary-General Ferah Uluca said that while the paper justifies the practice, it does not call on Muslims to perform it as a duty. Ulucay said it is up to each parent to decide, but the paper does claim the practice is not harmful to the girl involved.

The paper also uses a United Nations Population Fund report to back its argument comparing FGM to male circumcision — but the report cited states that the health consequences of male and female circumcision are much different.

In other news:

The “Sunna circumcision” is classified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as Type 1FGM which involves either the removal of the clitoral hood (prepuce) only (Type 1a) or the removal of the clitoris with the prepuce (Type 1b).

FGM has been illegal in Switzerland since 2012 and those found to practice any form of it are liable to be imprisoned for up to ten years.

Many advocates for FGM justify the process as “female circumcision”, claiming that it is separate from FGM. One such Islamic scholar, Irish Muslim leader Ali Selim, made this argument earlier this month saying: “I’m not an advocate of female genital mutilation but I am an advocate of female circumcision.”

The United Nations and the WHO make no distinction between various forms of female circumcision, labelling them all FGM.

Cases of FGM have skyrocketed across Europe due to mass migration policies with the UK seeing 5,000 cases in 2016 but no prosecutions, despite it being illegal.

In France, a recent report from an anti-FGM charity claimed that up to 30 per cent of the girls living in Paris’s heavily migrant-populated suburbs were at risk of FGM.

The prevalence of FGM has not been limited to Europe either, with more and more cases being seen in Canada as well.

One thought on “Swiss imam “not an advocate of female genital mutilation but…””

  1. This is their taqiyya. The Muslims are not being persecuted. They have the right to speak freely in the Western societies. Rather, it is the native Europeans whose speech is being suppressed.

    So how do they use their freedom of speech? Their protected speech? They make distinctions for the Kaffir between FGM and female circumcision. There is a difference apparently.

    That these liars have protected speech and the native Europeans calling them on their BS are ‘haters’ makes me furious.
