Egypt: Islamic supremacists pushing to legalize female genital mutilation

As we see in Australia, Female Genital Mutation (FMJ) is a fundamental part of Islam and will not be changed by the desires of the West.  It matters not that this barbaric practice preceded Islam, Islam incorporated it into itself and has taken it everywhere it has gone.


Egypt: Islamic supremacists pushing to legalize female genital mutilation

Islamic apologists in the West maintain that female genital mutilation has nothing to do with Islam, and that only greasy Islamophobes think otherwise. But eventually Muslims themselves get around to vindicating every last charge that greasy Islamophobes have ever made about Islamic belief and practice.

"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. 64

    In celebration of the day, the girls' hands had been painted with henna. They were ever so proud. But then came the moment of shock: "Suddenly this man, who was really a stranger to us, started to undress us," she recalls. "Then he got out his razor blade." All the girls underwent the procedure which mutilated them for life - without narcotics and without even minimal hygene standards.
