    Over 70,000 women in Germany have been subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM), and a further 17,000 young girls are at risk of having the barbaric procedure being committed against them. A German doctor, Cornelia Strunz, who works at the Desert Flower Center said that the number of cases of FGM in Germany is rising due to increased migration from Islamic African and Asian countries, dubbed the ‘FGM Zone’ where the practice is widespread. She advised women and girls who have undergone the procedure to have another surgery to reverse the damage caused by FGM.

    (Reuters) - The Israeli navy Tuesday seized a French yacht carrying pro-Palestinian activists heading for the blockaded Gaza Strip and forced it to go to Israel's Ashdod port, a military spokeswoman said. "I can confirm that the yacht has been boarded and that everything went smoothly, there were no casualties," the spokeswoman said after marines boarded the "Dignite-Al-Karama" yacht in the eastern Mediterranean. Chief military spokesman Brigadier-General Yoav Mordechai said the passengers were transferred from the yacht to one of the warships sent to intercept it and were en route to Ashdod. The 17-passenger yacht had declared an Egyptian port...

    A top adviser to President Obama is the contact person within the White House for communications with the Free Gaza Movement over plans to challenge Israel's blockade of the terrorist Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, according to a reputable source close to the Netanyahu government. The source, a career official whose reliability was established through his tips for the book, "Why Israel Can't Wait," identified John O. Brennan, deputy national security adviser for homeland security and counterterrorism, as the contact. The allegation raises the bizarre possibility that the Free Gaza Movement's flotilla action in the Mediterranean was being coordinated with the White...

    Actor Riz Ahmed sounded off on so-called Islamaphobia during a speech at the Creative Artists Agency Amplify conference in Ojai, California, suggesting whether this will be the year U.S. authorities “round up” Muslims and deport them overseas. Speaking in front of an audience of powerful industry executives, actors, and politicians, the British-Pakistani actor called on people to act against negative portrayals of Muslims in Hollywood and the media, claiming it was “super scary” to be a Muslim in the Western world. “The efforts of individual artists or storytellers may be bold, they may be progressive, they may act as beacons...

    Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., are rabidly anti-Semitic Muslim bigots and haters of America. Collectively, with their congressional Muslim counterparts, they unambiguously showcase every negative opinion held by civilized human beings who distrust their kind. They are uncouth, common, contumacious daughters of evil, who find America and Israel objectionable but somehow overlook the treatment of Islamic women and girls. Specific to same, let’s ask how far the congresswomen’s duplicitous double standards extend. Both of these women openly defend Shariah law. I want them to tell us what it’s like to have a mother, grandmother and/or a couple...

    Jennifer, a member of the evangelical community in Kentucky, shared her testimonial as a survivor of Female Genital Mutilation(FGM) earlier this week. Jennifer is a white, Christian, American – not the usual face of an issue that is often framed as a faraway cultural practice restricted to rural villages in sub-Saharan Africa. When I read Jennifer’s story about how her Christian mother subjected her to FGM to protect her purity and chastity, I had flashbacks to when I had been in the same position. I was visiting an aunt in India over the summer when I was seven years old....

    A mother in the Australian state of Queensland who took her two daughters to Somalia for genital mutilation has been warned she faces four years in prison for her crime. The woman cannot be named to protect the identities of her children, however court records confirm she is the first person to be sentenced in the northern state for removing a child for the purposes of female genital mutilation. She was found guilty of taking her daughters, then aged 10 and 13, to her birth country in April 2015 for the procedure, and will have her sentence suspended after eight...

    A woman in London was convicted on Friday over the genital cutting of her daughter, becoming the first person to be successfully prosecuted under the country’s law banning the practice. The 37-year old woman was found guilty of committing female genital mutilation in August 2017, when her daughter was 3. The girl’s father, 43, was cleared of charges. Neither parent was identified because of reporting restrictions placed on the case. “Female genital mutilation has an appalling physical and emotional impact on victims that usually lasts their entire life,” said Lynette Woodrow, a deputy chief crown prosecutor, in a statement. “A...

    Women’s activists are frustrated after last week’s ruling by a federal judge in Michigan, which declared that a 22-year-old federal ban on female genital mutilation (FGM) is unconstitutional.The decision came in response to a case in which Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, along with seven other people, was charged with mutilating the genitals of nine girls from Michigan, Minnesota, and Illinois between the years of 2015 and 2017. Authorities alleged that the girls were roughly 7 years old at the time of the procedure.According to prosecutors, Nagarwala ultimately headed up a conspiracy for over 12 years, which resulted in the procedure being...

    What would the new adult female converts to Islam do if their acceptance was contingent upon Female Genital Mutilation? If they had some - eh skin in the game- we could respect them. White religiously "pure" women like Sinead O'Connor want little brown girls to undergo FGM so why not them? The creeps KNOW it is wrong and barbaric that is why it can not even be spoken about elsewhere.

    Elizabeth Yore, an international child protection attorney, spoke on Wednesday to host Alex Marlow of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, highlighting the silence of feminists — and feminism’s prioritization of “diversity” — on the issue of female genital mutilation (FGM). “The silence from feminists has been deafening on this issue,” said Yore. “We need the support of feminists who believe in the rights of women to enjoy sexual pleasure. Well, these little girls have been robbed of that for the rest of their lives.” Yore added, “We’re supposed to be feminists, right? We’re supposed to protect women and girls. Why are...

    In an unbelievable travesty of justice, US District Judge Bernard Friedman dismissed a federal case against defendants charged with FGM and released them, saying that the 22 year old statute against Female Genital Mutilation is unconstitutional. Thirty other nations have outlawed the practice, but the judge says it has to be left up to the states. Several Michigan doctors faced federal charges after subjecting about 100 under-aged girls to the barbaric practice of a Muslim sect. Two mothers were also charged under the statute. Judge Friedman released them, saying that Congress overstepped its bounds in creating the law in the...

    In a response to the UN, the government failed to include information regarding its practice in asylum cases involving female genital mutilation (FGM) in Somalia. Although the country’s refugee agency Flygtningenævnet, which is part of the Ministry of Immigration and Integration, wished to submit the information, a section relating to FGM was removed, making the response less controversial, according to a report by newspaper Information. The decision to remove such information was taken by the ministry in consultation with the Ministry of Justice’s section for state and human rights (Stats-og Menneskeretskontor), according to the report. Information reports that public documents...
