    Geller Report ^ | 5/23/17 | Pamela Geller
    The lawyers for the Michigan FGM doctors charged with performing the barbaric procedures on young Muslim girls are saying these Muslim doctors are not guilty and are being persecuted because of their religion. Under Islamic law (sharia), they are not guilty. Under Western law, they are monsters. One of the girls told FBI investigators that she screamed out in pain during the procedure, while another young girl said she couldn’t walk for a few days after having her clitoris mutilated. The doctors claimed they didn’t cut the clitorises, but nicked them instead. It’s a distinction without difference. Perhaps they are...

    Gray wolves in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan could find themselves in the crosshairs of hunters as soon as this fall. A ruling is expected soon from the same appeals court that recently lifted protections for wolves in Wyoming. Officials say that whether Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan can hold wolf seasons this fall would depend in part on how soon the court rules. Meanwhile, wolf-hunting supporters in Congress aren't giving up even though a Minnesota representative was instrumental in killing an effort that would have allowed the three Midwest states to resume wolf hunting.

    The arrests of Dr. Nagarwala and two others last week represent the first federal female genital mutilation (FGM) investigation in United States history. FGM is common in the Islamic world, particularly in Africa. According to UNICEF, 98 percent of Somali girls and 87 percent of Egyptians have endured the procedure. FGM involves removing varying amounts of the victim’s — usually a pre-pubescent girl — clitoris, labia majoria, and labia minora. In its most extreme form, the victim is “infibulated,” having virtually all her external genitalia removed and being sewn up, leaving her with only a tiny hole from which to...

    GAYLORD, Mich. (ChurchMilitant.com) - A group of feminists shouted down a Protestant pastor opening a Michigan town hall meeting with prayer. Held in the city of Gaylord in Michigan's First Congressional District Thursday, Dr. Derek Hagland of Grace Baptist Church kicked off the event for state Republican congressman Jack Bergman, a former lieutenant general in the U.S. Marine Corps. Chanting "separation of Church and State," leftist activists — men and women alike — wearing the now-familiar pink hats associated with the D.C. Women's March tried to drown out Hagland's opening prayer. "He's incredibly transparent about faith being an important part...

    The Next Obama: Abdul EL-Sayed Is Being Groomed By George Soros Do you remember the keynote speaker at the DNC in 2004? If you don’t, let me tell you about him. He came onto the stage after years of being groomed by George Soros. He was picked by the Left to be their “champion” of Hope and Change. I guess that gave it away. The keynote speaker at the DNC that year was Barack Hussein Obama. Even my sons, who had never been interested in politics, were mesmerized by this man. His speech launched him as the darling of the...

    The city council in Lansing, Mich. voted Wednesday to rescind its decision to deem itself a "sanctuary" city for illegal immigrants after concerns from the businesses that the status would draw unwelcome attention to the city. The term "sanctuary city" generally refers to jurisdictions that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration officials. Under Lansing city policy, police don't ask for people's immigration status, except as required by U.S. or Michigan law or a court order. Council members voted 5-2 to reverse last week's 6-0 vote to give the city "sanctuary" status. Immigration advocates in the crowd called called council members...

    The Democratic Party may have found its next Barack Obama. His name is Dr. Abdul el-Sayed, he’s a 32-year-old medical doctor and he recently launched his campaign for Governor of Michigan, the election for which is in November 2018. If he wins he would be America’s first Muslim governor. He speaks articulately, without an accent, inserts humor into his speeches at seemingly just the right moments, and he has the full backing of America’s powerful Muslim Brotherhood-linked network of Islamic organizations. In an interview with Al Jazeera, Sayed said Michigan voters are having “buyer’s remorse,” and that President Trump’s decisions...
