Female Genital Mutilation on British Turf
By Jamie Glazov
FrontPageMagazine.com | Friday, March 20, 2009

Latest reports indicate that approximately 500 girls a year have their genitals mutilated in Britain.

It may come as no surprise to the knowledgeable political and cultural observer that the poor victims of these crimes are not from Christian or Jewish families, nor from Hindu or Buddhist ones. They are to be found predominantly in Muslim households. And being Muslim is a status that gives the victims, and all future victims, the unfortunate distinction of being part of a group that society can’t help, because the lib-Left has made sure that the Muslim culture can never be criticized and, therefore, that its sufferers can never be protected or saved.

Fact: female circumcision is illegal in Britain. But this doesn’t mean that British law enforcement is doing anything about this crime that Muslim communities are perpetrating against their little girls.

The reality: five hundred girls’ genitals are mutilated every year in Britain. Not one arrest. Not one incarceration.

You think protecting little girls’ genitals is more important nowadays than protecting oneself from the charge of being Islamophobic? Think again.

Islamic women haters, therefore, are reigning free in Britain. Enraged at even the thought of female sexuality, the self-appointed guardians of Islamic purity make sure to obliterate the clitorises of little girls before the girls begin to get the concept of their own human agency and the magic of love. In a fascistic effort to deny women even the possibility of personal happiness, individuality and sexual satisfaction, these mutilators start cutting girls at the age of seven or eight-before their menstrual periods begin-so that their sexuality will be amputated forever.

Despite its gruesome terror, this crime is widely practiced throughout world, for it is a crucial ingredient of Islamic gender apartheid and is known as female genital mutilation (FGM). Its ideological premise has been carefully constructed: a girl’s genital area is dirty and unacceptable. How much is amputated varies among cultures. In Egypt only the clitoris is amputated; in countries like Sudan the woman-haters are not so kind. In a savagery called infibulation, the girl’s external genital organs are completely removed: the clitoris, the two major outer lips (labia majora) and the two minor inner lips (labia minora). In Sudan, the term used for this is tahur-which means “cleansing” or “purification.”

More than 130 million women living today have been subjected to this horrifying practice, and more than two million girls are assaulted by it each year. That is more than five thousand girls every day. Many girls lose their lives during FGM, which is often done with broken glass. Most victims suffer from chronic infection and pain for the rest of their lives. The mutilation robs women of their ability to enjoy the fullness of their sexuality and, therefore, the fullness of their lives. Approximately 75 percent of women cannot achieve orgasm without clitoral stimulation; thus, the possibility of sexual satisfaction has been obliterated for millions of women in the Muslim world.

The Muslim communities who practise FGM will not easily abandon their barbarity. The Egyptian government, for example, banned FGM in 1996, but an Egyptian court overturned the ban in July 1997. The problem is that the clitoris mutilators point to traditional teachings that sanction FGM. Islamic tradition, for instance, records the Prophet Muhammad emphasizing that circumcising girls is “a preservation of honor for women.” A legal manual of the Shafi’i school of Islamic jurisprudence, ‘Umdat al-Salik, which is endorsed by Al-Azhar University of Cairo — the oldest and most prestigious university in the Islamic world — states that circumcision is obligatory for both boys and girls.

Underlying this brutality is the obvious belief that the sexual mutilation of women will help keep the structure of Islamic gender apartheid in place. Keeping FGM legitimized and institutionalized is one of the most effective means to keep women subjugated and caged. The assumption is that amputating the clitoris will kill the woman’s sexual desire and thereby reduce the chances that she will ever toy with the notion of self-determination.

Thanks to the Left’s policy of multiculturalism, where no value can be said to be worse or better than any other (except, of course, if American society and culture is the subject of discussion), FGM is now being widely practised on Western territory. A study estimates that 66,000 women living in England and Wales have suffered FGM, most of them before emigrating from their home country. More than 7,000 girls in Britain alone, meanwhile, are at a high risk of being victims of the crime. At present, we know that more than 500 girls in Britain are being mutilated every year.

This horror show demands a certain question: Where are the leftist feminists in the West crying out in opposition to this crime against their sisters being carried out on their own shores? In what pages, in what demonstrations, are they denouncing the theology that serves as an inspiration to this crime and calling it to account? Where are the Women’s Studies Departments on Western campuses demanding that Islam be confronted on these grotesque elements of misogyny? Where are the columnists of the Nation Magazine, the supposed leader of the humanitarian Left, repudiating this practise and the texts on which is based?

The Left’s cries of indignation are not to be heard because admitting the inferiority of an adversarial culture might very well legitimize Western civilization, a recognition that no leftist can allow if he hopes to retain his identity and social belonging. That’s why the leftist forces in our society do their best to excuse FGM with the tired old mantra: it’s not only Muslims that do it – as if inaction to save human beings from evil is somehow justified because a sin might exist somewhere else.

Hypothetical question: if we could have saved the Jewish inmates from Auschwitz before they were gassed, would it have been right to abort the rescue operation upon discovering that someone, somewhere, in some other place, said or did something anti-Semitic?

Yes, there are non-Islamic parts of Africa whose cultural traditions also dehumanize women and practice FGM. But Muslims are the principal religious group that practices this sexual violence against women. In Egypt, 97 percent of girls are circumcised. And there is no greater revolting image than the smug leftist turning his back on these victims because a non-Muslim somewhere sliced the genitals off of a little girl. How does this self-satisfied inhumanity save the Muslim girls who will be mutilated in the future?

We know that it doesn’t. But alas, this is only another chapter of a long dark story – the story of the Left, with its hands drenched with complicity in human blood, sacrificing human beings on the altar of utopian ideals.

    When they circumcise the boys, do they remove the entire penises and testicles as well, or just the foreskins?
    Hey if they want to be “equal”, they let them lose all sexuality on both sides, huh? That might solve many problems. Then there would be no more muzzies. Frankly, I’d rather they leave the females alone and just castrate the males of all sexual organs.

  2. irishoaks Says:

    P.S. with a dirty piece of broken glass and no lidocaine.

    • “I hope u give a chace to share inspite of your hate to my people and u being very an fare to them “

      First of all, we don’t hate your peeps, we hate the religion of Islam; more specifically, the profligate Muhammad.

      Secondly, we are being more than fair to the followers of Muhammad – a mass-murdering sexual predator. Most civilized folks would have been smart enough NOT to follow such an obviously false prophet.

      We understand that there is some mental retardation involved, so we cut Muzzies a lot of slack; like, not dropping atomic bombs on Mecca right after 9/11…

    sudan

    female circumsion is done by african peoples and muslims we already know that.

    If ilah created women as your quran points out it is better for them to be uncut. Women and young girls dont need to be circumsized or harmed.

  7. surveyman Says:

    Muslim men are insecure and afraid they cannot satisfy a woman.This way they don’t have to.These men are a bunch of evil wimps.One day they will face ALMIGHTY GOD the one who created everything.I would not want to be in there sandals.

    Muzzies are wimps, but it seems like there rates of rape, child molestation, serial killers, abortion, and child pornography are a lot lower than you american pig..

    Oh Im a gringo, I’m right, my way of life is the only one correct, you fat hamburger and french fry eating pig….Leave these people alone, thats there way of life, I would rather have girls mutilated, than see 16 year old whores, getting banged online, inbreeds, and trailer trash rednecks giving blow jobs at the age of ten..

    Point the finger at yourself first..We americans live in a sick society, our sins are far more worst than that of muslims….No doubt about it..Living in what we call a free society, doesnt mean we are cleared of all sins…


    • You’re an idiot just fooling yourself.

      The reason why other countries’ rates of rape and crimes seems so low is because THEY DON’T REPORT IT!!!!!

      Consider this, many women living in Islamic countries who actually do report rape are often convicted by the courts of adultery and summarily lashed or imprisoned.

      With such a justice system, it’s no wonder such crimes don’t get reported.

      And, if you think I’m pulling your leg, then go ahead and move to an Islamic country.

      We Americans are a GREAT society. We have a justice system that deals as fairly and humanely as possible with criminals and victims and actually encourages women to report rape.

      If you think America is a sick society, then friggin’ move!!!!!!!!!!!!

      No one is stopping you!!!!

      Hell, I’ll even pay for your ticket out of here, you freakin’ moron!

      Oh, and P.S. – I don’t eat french fries, nor do I eat hamburgers. Too many carbs. Nor, am I fat. A year ago, well, you would have been right. But, Mrs. Bulldog has had me on a diet and pumping weights for over a year now, and I’m back down to my fighting weight. So, bring it on!

    I’m going to assume your making a sick joke.

    Islamic society is not better but worse than America.

    Here in America I don’t live in a culture that demands my daughters from being mutilated for a future husband.

    Go convert to islam idiot if you think thier morality and jihadism is going to be you more moral.

  10. Yasmiiin Says:

    I’m a muslim girl living in england and i frankly hate the muslim society, its sick.
    The only reason there are only a few repoted rapes is becuase NOONE reports it. Women are firghtened out of their mind to go dare report it. Trust me, i know. We
    have to keep our ‘Honor’ and ‘Pride’ Watever that is…
    I Know, Its stupid with the ‘honor’ and ‘pride’ coming over child molestation and genital mutilation…But Hey what can u do?
    And yes i will not be allowed to marry a non-muslim man (although i really do want to)
    And im barely 14 and theyve got me thinking about marriage already (im 13)
    Its horrendous and i sincerely hate being a muslim GIRL, but for men, lifes a lot easier.Obviosly. Theyr’e muslim men and theyre the greatest most powerfullest men in the world who can shag any muslim women they want and still get theyre end of the day curry. That was sarcasm if you didnt know.

  11. izlams not for me Says:

    Gee Yasmiiiin

    Really sarcasm? Wow I thought muslimas were too pious for humor.

    At least there is still hope for you.

    You can always leave islam and become an apostate.

  12. Yasmiiin Says:

    Hmmm i would get killed for the thought of that.

  13. TOM MADISON Says:

    “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him”
    Hmmm.
    Didn’t Obama say he changed his Islamic religion, and joined a Christian church? How come he gets away with it? Or do Muslims know something that we don’t know?

    • islams not for me Says:

      Well lets see…

      His Daddy is dead…, Step Daddy is probably dead…

      Any other islamic relative would likely never be able to meet with Obama-apostate and therefore unable to ‘honor kill’ him.
