    Shortened title. Full title: FBI Probe Into Female Genital Mutilation Expands Beyond Michigan to New York, California and Illinois The FBI's investigation into genital mutilation of girls, some as young as six-years-old, has expanded beyond the original case in Michigan where two doctors were arrested and indicted in April. Girls from Minnesota were taken to Michigan for "treatment" by their parents. A refresher on some of the details:   The Department of Justice indicted and arrested Detroit emergency room doctor Jumana Nagarwala on multiple charges Thursday, alleging she performed a number of illegal female genital mutilations (FGM) from 2005 and...

    While I tend to vote for Republicans more often than Democrats, keep in mind that I live in the Northeast and Republicans in New Jersey tend to be fairly moderate, as I’d say I am. I have numerous friends who are Democrats and admire many public officials who represent the Democrat party. I believe it is necessary for both major parties to be well represented and combine their ideas, because I think both parties have good ideas that should be implemented. But if the Democrats were smart, they’d run far away from Linda Sarsour. This is a woman who said...

    We've reported on the barbaric Islamic procedure known as female genital mutilation, specifically in Michigan. Now, Michigan has passed a law that will sentence those involved in female genital mutilation to prison for up to 15 years, including parents and anyone involved. Female genital mutilation is nothing like circumcision. It is a barbaric act committed against little girls who are a part of Islamic communities. The law was both written and passed following the widely circulated story of several girls in Minnesota and Michigan receiving the procedure from a doctor in Detroit. The central government claims that, according to their...
  • Democrats Across The Nation Are Opposing Laws Against FGM – It’s A Disgrace

    The act of Female Genital Mutilation is becoming far more widespread in the US than ever before. There are more than half a million (at least) women and girls who have undergone this barbaric procedure in the US alone and studies suggest there are more than 200 million women and girls worldwide living today who have been abused in this way. Yet Democrats (and some Republicans) across the nation are voting AGAINST making this practice illegal in their States. In Maine, the House voted 76-71 AGAINST a new law that would make Female Genital Mutilation illegal. They have instead opted...

    Sweden is being torn to pieces by Muslim immigrants and refugees. Law enforcement is crying out for help, and it is only a question of time before the country will need military intervention from abroad in order to avoid a humanitarian catastrophe. A leaked report concludes that the number of lawless areas (commonly referred to as “no-go zones”) in Sweden now totals 61. That is up from 55 in just one year’s time. This increase includes not only the total number, but also the geographical size of these areas. Sweden’s National Police Commissioner, Dan Eliasson, spoke on national television and...

    Michigan is set to become the 26TH American state to join the federal government in criminalizing female genital mutilation, even as two Detroit area doctors and one of their wives await trial for inflicting the procedure on a number of young girls. FGM, which is common in some parts of Africa and the Middle East, involves using a razor to remove all or part of a girl's clitoris and parts of the vulva. By Western standards, this amounts to child abuse and criminal assault. FGM defenders claim that the practice makes girls feel "clean;" that it helps them to fit...

    The American Civil Liberties Union launched a vocal opposition this week against a Maine bill criminalizing female genital mutilation (FGM), Mainely Media reports. Republican Rep. Heather Sirocki is sponsoring the bill, saying that it would classify performing FGM as a Class B crime in the state, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. The bill would also punish the parent or guardian of the victim. However, the Maine ACLU staunchly opposes the protection.

    To be perfectly clear, the difference between male and female circumcision — the male circumcision is a removal of a fold of skin, which has little or no impact on a man’s enjoyment of sexual pleasure. The explicit purpose of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is to cut the clitoris and limit or destroy female sexual pleasure. (That doesn’t even begin to address the lifelong and sometimes catastrophic health consequences the female victims of this barbaric practice endure.) As a result of the resignation, attention was focussed on the teaching. Shortly after, they denounced his statements. In a recorded lecture on...

    Johari Abdul-Malik has worked to pull his embattled mosque "out of the fire" too many times, and on Friday he decided he had enough. Abdul-Malik, an imam and the public face of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Va., one of the nation's largest and oft-embattled mosques, resigned after he said the mosque's board failed to adequately address a brewing controversy over the banned practice of female genital mutilation. The mosque's lead imam, Shaker Elsayed, drew a wave of condemnation from Abdul-Malik and young Muslim activists earlier in the week after he appeared to endorse a certain form of...

    “Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) (by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the bazr ‘clitoris’ [this is called khufaadh ‘female circumcision’]).” — ‘Umdat al-Salik e4.3, translated by Mark Durie, The Third Choice, p. 64Why is it obligatory? Because Muhammad is held to have said so: “Abu al- Malih ibn Usama’s father relates that the Prophet said: ‘Circumcision is a law for men and a preservation of honour for women.’” — Ahmad Ibn Hanbal 5:75“Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah: A woman...

    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...

    Imagine what the American left would do if conservative Republican Christians engaged in a barbaric practice to mutilate little girls, to kill off their sexual desire while leaving them fertile when they come of age. **SNIP** "The left can easily and comfortably condemn the misogyny of white men, but not of men of color, not of Muslims," Hirsi Ali said. "They are afraid of being shunned. They're afraid of being put into a basket of deplorables. So they're silent." "And what are they being silent about? They are being silent about the mutilation of young girls."

    The New York Times included the term “Female Genital Mutilation” in an online feature Wednesday, an apparent reversal from an editor’s declaration last week that the paper would not use the “culturally loaded” term. The op-ed by “Muslim feminist” Shireen Qudosi, a forceful condemnation of the practice, was posted in the Times’ online Women in the World section Wednesday. “Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is the horrific act of cutting off a young girl’s clitoris,” Qudosi opens her piece. The semantic bluntness contrasts with Health and Science Editor Celia Dugger’s decision to avoid the term “female genital mutilation” in the Times’...

    Minnesota lawmakers sat in stunned silence Wednesday as a Somali-American woman described how she was grabbed while sleeping by her mother and relatives, blindfolded and tied down to have her genitals cut as a young girl. She still remembers the pain, the blood and a woman holding the piece of her flesh above her. Farhio Khalif’s story put a name and face to the little-known cultural ritual now in the national spotlight after a Detroit-area doctor was charged with genital mutilation for allegedly performing the procedure on two 7-year-old girls from Minnesota. A federal judge on Wednesday denied bond for...

    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...

    I wrote about this story earlier this month. Operating out of a Livonia clinic, Jumana Fakhruddin Nagarwala abused unknown numbers of little girls. The end came when law enforcement traced calls to her from a Minnesota number.  Then they followed the trail to a hotel in Farmington Hills; a Michigan city at the center of an Islamic Center controversy.

    This is the face of evil. It is the face of a wretched and barbaric practice- female genital mutilation. It is sometimes sugared over with the term female circumcision but make no mistake- it is mutilation. FGM refers to all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for cultural or other non-medical reasons. The woman in the picture above is Dr. Jumana Nagarwala. Her medical credentials are not in question: She graduated the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1998, according to an online bio (see cached...
