Islamic Genital Mutilation: A Barbaric Atrocity.
140 million women have suffered genital mutilation.
While Islam condones SLAVERY, the BEATING OF WOMEN, and HONOR KILLINGS (the murder of children), one of the most barbaric atrocities practiced by Islam is GENITAL MUTILATION.
In Islam, young girls are forced to undergo a CLITORECTOMY, which removes the clitorus. This deprives women of any kind of enjoyment of sex during their lifetime.
There are 140 million victims of this barbaric practice.
Truly, to be a woman in Islam is to suffer BRUTALITY, BEATINGS, ENSLAVEMENT, MUTILATION, RAPE and DEATH.
Islam is the greatest stain on the human race.
A Newsmax article on the subject follows.

Compromise Would Permit Mutilation of Islamic Children
By: Herbert LondonIn a policy shift that smacks of appeasement, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggested that American doctors should be given permission to perform a ceremonial pinprick on girls from Muslim culture in order to keep their families from imposing full “circumcision” clitorectomies.
The academy’s committee on bioethics justified this stance by noting federal law “makes criminal any nonmedical procedure performed on the genitals” of a girl in the United States, thereby driving some families to take their daughters overseas to undergo mutilation. Presumably the ritual “nick” is a compromise to avoid greater harm.
Whatever the intention, however, this policy shift vouchsafes legitimacy to a practice that should not be permitted. How much bloodletting will satisfy parents? And at what point do compromises end?
If Muslim countries allow wife-beating and slavery, do we allow a little of these practices in the United States in order to avoid more extreme examples? Perhaps a punch or two would be acceptable?
The counter-argument states that to declare clitorectomies wrong, unacceptable, and barbaric indicates “insensitivity” to another culture. But there are humane considerations that transcend cultural practice, and that should be honored everywhere.
Currently 130 million females worldwide have undergone genital mutilation, according to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. It is mostly performed on girls under the age of 15. Very often this procedure results in severe complications with pregnancy as well as sexual dysfunction.
Where are the feminists? If there were ever an issue that brings them to the barricades, this should be it. Moreover, a compromise that legitimates even the recognition of this monstrous practice should be seen for what it is: the thin edge of the wedge that will allow for other barbaric acts.
On a larger front, this decision by pediatricians reveals a sentiment widespread in Europe and now gaining traction in the United States: a desire to avoid conflict through preemptive compromises.
As intimidation often occurs backstage, Western nations prefer conciliation to violence even if it means undermining the fabric of society. This explains why British and Danish representatives have discussed officially acknowledging Shariah in legal matters.
Of course, reconciliation is not possible: Shariah is not capable of accommodating common law and constitutional principles. For Muslims, it is all or nothing; and, since they recognize the vulnerability of Western institutions, it is more “all” than “nothing.”
That an intelligent group of doctors does not recognize the implications of their action is truly puzzling. But then again, so many are blinded by fear, and hope a “modest” compromise will satisfy demanding voices.
Rarely, of course, does reciprocity enter the equation: although what is good for the goose should be good for the gander, unfortunately this is not the way Islam is treated in most Western capitals.
This is not the end of this cultural saga; there are and will be further compromises and from many surprising sources. Where this is leading is frighteningly clear: the incremental adjustment in Western standards.
Slowly, these compromises will lead to a change in our civilization, unless the West awakens to what is really expected by extremist Islam.
Note: I should have probably changed the original text in title: woman (singular) to women (plural), but I didn’t want to alter the original text by that blogger.
‘Submission’ by Ayaan Hirsi Ali regarding the treatment of women under Islam, should be required reading for everyone.
It will make your stomach churn.
Why aren’t the liberal groups on this?
Why isn’t our President on this.....I mean, against it?
for accuracy’s sake, this is not an “Islamic Genital Mutilation,” non-muslims in that area do it too.
At some point in time there will be a nationwide effort in the future to castrate ALL Islamic males when born in the USA.
snip snip, eunachy. eunachy
we shouldn’t be surprised...it’s already “OK” to suck out a baby’s brain to kill it.
soon Planned Parenthood will be providing mutilation services-and asking for tax money to do it.
Islam is the religion of pieces...
These men have made it so that all they can do in sex is take. They have nothing they can give to the woman. They’ve castrated themselves; they just don’t know it because for them it’s just an animal act of taking - the equivalent of rape - not the giving/sharing that it is for the rest of us.
Every-time i see a Muslim woman my heart goes out to her..knowing she has had her body and spirit mutilated.
What was that bit about Kagan’s support for Sharia law to be integrated with civil law?
And she is going to be a member of our Supreme Court.
“Every-time i see a Muslim woman my heart goes out to her..knowing she has had her body and spirit mutilated.
—I doubt that very many, if any of the Muslim women you have seen (if you are speaking aboutin the us) were GMed.
And I believe it is a pre-islamic practice that is still occuring in backwards places.
I wasn’t aware of this, it’s incredible.
Anyone ever try to do something barbaric like that to my daughter will not like what I end up doing to them. Even if they threaten to do such barbaric acts the response would be something they would probably not want.
Oh well,that might prevent some
suicide homicide-bombings... as the "72 virgin sex" project prospect might be in "jeopardy."
140 million out of about half a billion is a substantial number, but isn’t the practice regional, in north Africa?
Some tribes in Kenya practice that—or used to, anyway. Yech.
