The Al-Azhar authorities stated in 1997 that cutting female sexual organs -- even partially -- has no foundation in Islam, is medically harmful, and should not be carried out. "Everyone pretends like it never happened."
While overshadowed apparently by the general civil conflict over the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) regime in Egypt, the spreading problem of female genital mutilation (FGM) has recently shaken the land of the Nile.
Yet the mass upsurge against the tyrannical fundamentalism of the MB is related, however obscurely, to the protests against FGM.
Late in June, British media reported that Suhair Al-Ba'ta, an Egyptian girl aged 13, died during an FGM "operation." She reportedly perished from blood loss while subjected to FGM in a village north of Cairo. The latest terrible "death by FGM" of a girl in early adolescence provoked widespread outrage at the practice. Disregarding public opinion, representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood, according to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), defended FGM as "Islamic."
The Muslim Brotherhood is joined, in defending FGM, by other male Islamist Egyptian leaders. Yusef Al-Badri, one of the country's most prominent Wahhabi preachers, has defined FGM as "ordered by shariah [religious law] from Allah,"

” Dr. El-Adly, like other experts, asserts that FGM is an ancient pagan custom in the region, with no basis in Islam.”
Muslims are not pagans?
When did this occur?
Precisely. Islam is nothing if not a cargo cult pagan political tyranny. It needs to be internationally outlawed as an enemy of humanity.
You can take Islam out of the 6th century, but you can't take the 6th century out of Islam.
Bury those animals up to their necks in sand, in the Sahara and drop scarabs and red ants.
I was too young a girl to understand the photo or even the concept of girls being operated on without anesthesia, nor in a group, lying on the ground. What could possibly be happening to them? At the time, I was living with my siblings in an ordinary American Christian home, in the shelter of both parents, our extended family, the church, the neighborhood and the school; such things took place in parts of the world outside of Western civilization.
The photo, with its mysteriously incomplete caption, was stomach-churning, horrifying beyond imagination. But for the past fifty-plus years, it has not remained beyond memory. Only recently have I realized what it most probably depicted: a group of girls reaching puberty and undergoing ritual genital mutilation.
Nor does this barbarism affect only Africans, or only girls, although it affects them in horrific ways; and more girls are permanently mutilated beyond any hope of a normal life, or die from it, than do boys:
"Diversity is our strength."
"All cultures are equal.
"Islam is a religion of peace."
Never in my wildest nightmares did I believe such barbarism could take place in Europe or the United States. But it is here now; and we must face the lies of multiculturalism before it is too late.
Lets restate that:
“Nearly all women in Egypt are mutilated”
Islam has been an insane rape and murder cult since Mad Mo crawled from the bat cave and barked at the moon.
Pity their women...
So is Judaism.
They know enough not to marry cousins.
