Female genital mutilation: unreported, ignored, unpunished, and lied about
This report from the UK’s Independent never mentions FGM’s justification in Islamic law. The Independent wouldn’t dare be so “Islamophobic.” Islamic apologists in the West maintain that female genital mutilation has nothing to do with Islam, and that only greasy Islamophobes think otherwise. But eventually Muslims themselves get around to vindicating every last charge that greasy Islamophobes have ever made about Islamic belief and practice.
“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 thebazrÂ ‘clitoris’ [this is calledÂ khufaadhÂ ‘female circumcision’]).” –Â ‘Umdat al-SalikÂ e4.3, translated by Mark Durie,Â The Third Choice, p. 64
“Islamic law permits by definition, by prophetic statement and by practice female circumcision” –Â Australian Imam Afroz Ali
“Special report: Female genital mutilation – unreported, ignored and unpunished,” by Brian Brady and Paul Cahalan in theÂ Independent, January 6 (thanks to JW):
The failure to punish anyone for carrying out female genital mutilation (FGM) in almost a decade since Labour introduced a new law designed to stamp out the practice is forcing prosecutors to seek alternative methods to tackle the problem. The Government was facing growing criticism from campaigners after an Independent on Sunday investigation into the horrifying practice known as “cutting”, in which the genitals of women and girls are severed by unqualified people in the belief it will preserve the girl’s virginity.
Would it be better if it were done by “qualified people”?

Australia: TV Program Discusses FGM Among the Muslim ‘Community’Â
A common line of apologists is that FGM is ‘cultural’ rather than religious and that ‘it has nothing to do with Islam’. Fact is that FGM spread around the world because of Islam, and if it wasn’t for Islam people wouldn’t practice it.
From the ABC’s ‘7.30’ program, Caro Meldrum-Hanna reporting.
‘Breaking the silence over genital mutilation horror’.
‘Across the nation, young girls (that is, ‘young Muslim girls’Â – CM) are being mutilated in a brutal and barbaric religious practice that most Australians struggle to comprehend.
Why should we seek to ‘comprehend’ something like that? Practices like FGM, ‘honor’ murder of perceived-to-be-uppity women, the killing of apostates and ‘blasphemers’, and the forced ‘marriage’ of underage girls are not quaint, complex customs requiring to be earnestly ‘comprehended’; they require to beÂ banned, and those who advocate or practise them should not be permitted to remain on Australian soil.Â However: kudos to Ms Meldrum-Hanna and the 7.30 Report for actually using the words ‘brutal’ and ‘barbaric’. Â And for being prepared to mention ‘religious’, and to face up to which ‘religion’ is involved.Â Â – CM
‘More than 120,000 migrant women in AustraliaÂ have suffered genital mutilation -Â a brutal religious practice common in Islamic populationsÂ in Africa, South America, parts of Asia and the Middle East.

A Sydney sheikh has appeared in court in relation to the alleged genital mutilation of two children.
Paul Bibby–Court Reporter for Â SMH
Sheikh Shabbir Vaziri, 56, who police sources say is part of a lesser-known branch of Islam, has been charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of female genital mutilation and hindering investigation of a serious indictable offence.
A ‘lesser-known branch of Islam? Is Paul Bibby trying to imply that we’re dealing with the ubiquitous ‘tiny minority of excremists’ in order to placate the ‘radicals?’

On a tip from CGW
Dr. Hatem al-Haj, PhD, MD is known to WoJ readers as a radical Islamic headbanger who warnedÂ American Muslims against working in law enforcement in our ‘infidel’ nation (seeÂ hereÂ ).
Dr. al-Haj Â is also an advocate for FGM and explained why female genital mutilation is “recommended” Â and even ‘an honor’ for women….Â Needless to mention that none of this has anything to do with Islam…. after all, its just a ‘cultural nick’, right?
Thanks to our petition the good doctor has been sacked. Needless to mention Â that he is now in full blown victimisation mode and rants against Â ‘racist bigot islamophobes’ who resist his cultural enrichment cuttings.
The doctor now has his own petition, accusing us of “lying” and urging all to “rebuke the islamophobes”:
You can sign his petition here:
Too late, he’s fired.
Note that religion was only referred to in the context of his own words/writing – we attacked the PRACTICE. He’s the one who based the practice on his religion, not us!

Female genital mutilation occurring in Ireland
“FGM is not just in Africa. FGM is not just in Egypt. FGM is here.”
There are a number of different types of FGM, and the methods used and reasons for it vary from region to region. It is usually performed between the ages of five and 12 by the child’s female relatives, but sometimes takes place just before a woman marries or gives birth for the first time.
FGM is usually performed without the use of anaesthetic or hygienic surgical tools. Instruments known to be used include sharp rocks, razor blades, kitchen knives, broken glass, or even the use of the circumcisers’ teeth, according to the WHC. Â (Irish Health)

A very revealing article from the Maldives thanks to the Religion of Peace. One could get the impression that Islam is a progressive disease. These former Buddhists and Hindus are totally brainwashed and subdued by Wahabi lunatics from Arabia.
“The Wahhabist scholars preach more forcefully than anyone else can. They have this backing of religion as a tool.”
And then they turn around and tell us that FGM has absolutely ‘nothing to do with Islam’.
Maldives women face more repression under a rising tide of religious fundamentalism, reports Ben Doherty from Male.
“This practice constitutes one of the most inhumane and degrading forms of violence against women” … United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay
When the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, visited the Maldives late last year, she urged that the practice of flogging women for having sex outside marriage – while very rarely punishing men for the same – should be abolished.
”This practice constitutes one of the most inhumane and degrading forms of violence against women,” she told local reporters then.
The response was as fierce as it was unexpected. The next day protesters rallied outside the UN building, carrying placards that read ”Ban UN” and ”Islam is not a toy” and threatened to ”Flog Pillay”. A website later promised to ‘‘slaughter anyone against Islam”.

Netherlands: Lawyer proposes legalizing ‘symbolic’ female circumcision
“Just a tiny little nick”- Â for the “tiny minority of excremists”, Â tinier than the 600-pound gorilla in the room:
These people are certifiably insane. First of all, Â its not circumcision, its genital mutilation. Second: who will decide how much will be cut off and how will those be punished who mutilate their daughters ‘properly?’
Wouter Limborgh, a criminal lawyer, proposes in his doctoral thesis to legalize a minor or symbolic female circumcision under medical supervision. The consequences for the girl in such a procedure are so minor, he says, that cultural freedom should take precedence. Limborgh writes that this will meet the wish of people to be who they are. Their quality of life will increase and it will prevent people from going ahead with procedures which aren’t visible.
Limborgh says this won’t be a slippery slope and that it could improve the position of women. If the procedure won’t lead to drastic and lasting harmful effects for the girl, there’s insufficient reason for punishment.
The idea was criticized by The Dutch Physicians Association and women’s organizations.
