How is it that Dr. Hatem al-Haj, a fellow at the American Academy of Pediatrics and a leading Muslim jurist, misunderstands Islamic law so severely as to think that this purely cultural practice has something to do with Islam? Surely it can't be that the mainstream media and Islamic leaders in the U.S. have been lying to us, and FGM really is justified in Islam, could it? Naaah.
"AMJA Senior Committee Member: Female Genital Mutilation Is 'an Honor' per Islam," from Translating Jihad, April 27 (thanks to all who sent this in):
A couple of weeks ago I posted a translation of a paper by Association of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) senior committee member Dr. Hatem al-Haj, PhD, MD, in which he warned American Muslims against working in law enforcement in our 'infidel' nation (see here for more details). Now in my latest translation, Dr. al-Haj explains why female circumcision is recommended and even 'an honor' for women....
Below is my excerpted translation of the 41-page Arabic-language paper by Dr. Hatem al-Haj entitled "Circumcision of Girls: Jurisprudence and Medicine" (see the original here and here):
The ruling on circumcision: Scholars have differed on the ruling on circumcision. They have agreed on its legitimacy for both sexes, but beyond that they have differed. Some--most famously the Shafiites--believe that it is obligatory for both sexes. Some believe it is obligatory for men only, and some believe it is recommended for both. At the very least it can be said that for women it is an honor, and for men it is sunnah [i.e. it is in accord with the tradition of Muhammad].

These people are deeply sick.
OK, why don’t the guys stick their junk into a blender, for the honor of it!
But W said it was a religion of peace.
I am against the mutilation of genitalia for either sex before the age of eighteen. If you want to to it after you turn 18, go for it. But that is just me.
Or was W saying piece?
I wonder if she has had her girlie bits cut off?
Why the USA allows these Koranimals in our country is beyond belief.
(Oh, thats right. We have one of “them” as president. Forgot.)
What has Sandra Fluke said about this?
Or Ariana Za Za Huffington?
We got it. It wasn’t any better the second time. Remember, its not a real thread until someone trashes Bush.
In truth, it is simply that Islamic “scholars” view women as son-making machines. They are not supposed to enjoy the reproductive act, ant that is why it is such an honor to have such an item which would allow it, removed... Women are chattel and men are in control. Of course if someone removed the good doctors “tip” we could see how he would respond to an equivalent “surgery” as he is advocating for females.
Well, let's make it official then. Bush adopted the phrase Religion of Peace. He said it in a very public way on several occasions. Another example of your boy "hero" being all compassionately squishy.
“We got it. It wasnt any better the second time. Remember, its not a real thread until someone trashes Bush.”
Would “Stay away from Dem Bushes” do?
NOTE: The name of the member of the American Academy of Pediatrics is a Muslim whose first name is “Hatem”, and hating is what Muslims are good at. His last name is - this is NOT a joke ‘al-Haj’.
Another Muslim whose utterances prove why Islam is antithetical to, and irreconcilable with, America.
Islam Delenda Est - because of what Islam is and what Muslims do.
I think my next call will be to the Minnesota Board of Registration In Medicine.
Just posting a fact. If I was to post a lie about something he said, that would be “trashing”.
Another half-arsed tradition. I think all muslims should be neutered before age 12.
Good work. Your call means a lot. They have to respond to it.
There's an argument to be made in favor of it for boys.Studies have shown fewer incidents of cancers in males who've had it.Apart from pain I don't know if there's any real downside.
For girls there's no upside...it's just a barbaric act of 9th Century knuckledraggers.
Anyone needing a handy definition for oxymoronic clusterf**k please copy/paste the above.
“those who know medicine know that Mayo is about the best,and most famous,in the world.”
I don’t know if they still do but at one time Mayo was the medical home for the Saudi Royal family. So I wouldn’t expect a lot from them, but I hope they would take a stand against this.
