    More Than 500K in U.S. Risk Female Genital Mutilation

    More than 500K in U.S. Risk Female Genital Mutilation, Say Feds

    February 6, 2018

    Lana Shadwick

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that “more than 500,000 women and girls in the United States are at risk of or have been subjected to FGM/C (Female Genital Mutilation or Cutting).”

    The CDC says that some of these half million women and girls are cut in the United States. Others are sent abroad for mutilation.

    Today is the International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and other U.S. agencies are calling on the “global community” for an end to this abuse.
    In the United States, FGM/C is a serious crime and officials have prosecuted individuals who performed the procedure.

    FGM/C is also a form of child abuse.

    Those who engage in this criminal procedure can be convicted and serve prison time. There are also immigration consequences.

    Last April, three people in Michigan were charged in connection with the crime. Breitbart News reported that Dr. Fakhruddin Attar and his wife Farida Attar was arrested in the Detroit suburb of Livonia, Michigan. Dr. Jumana Nagarwala was arrested the week before. The arrests represented the first prosecution of FGM/C in the U.S.

    The list of Attar’s victims began after two seven-year-old Minnesota girls were brought across state lines to have the mutilating procedure done at Attar’s Burhani Medical Clinic.

    As reported by Breitbart News, the:

    practice [is] common primarily in Muslim countries, particularly those in Africa. For example, UNICEF estimates that 98% of Somali girls and 87% of Egyptians have endured the procedure.

    Last July, a female genital mutilation probe widened to Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York and more arrests and indictments were expected. Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward, a prosecutor in the Attar case, told the Detroit News in June that she estimated that there were at least 100 victims of the Muslim mutilation ring over the last 12 years. Breitbart News and the Detroit News reported that the number was underestimated. At least one other person was investigated in New York City for involvement in the conspiracy.

    Breitbart News reported that the CDC estimated in 2016 that the number of women and girls in the U.S. who are “at risk of or may have been subjected” to FMG/C was up three-times the amount over the past decades.
    Last year, the state of Texas took aim at FGM by passing legislation that provides for the prosecution of individuals who transport girls within or out of the state to undergo the procedure, as reported by Breitbart Texas at the time. The state already has a ban on the procedure.

    The issue of FGM/C has been a sensitive and politically-loaded one. Last year, Breitbart News reported that The New York Times used the term in May – an apparent reversal from an editor’s position the week before that the paper would not use the “culturally loaded” term.

    There was a reason our founders refused to give Congress the authority to admit immigrants into the US. Maybe it's time Americans demand our Constitution be upheld.

    New York Times Will Say ‘Female Genital Mutilation’ After All

    May 3, 2018

    Ian Mason

    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’ print edition. Dugger explained her reasoning for substituting the term “genital cutting” in a response to a reader last week. “There’s a gulf between the Western (and some African) advocates who campaign against the practice and the people who follow the rite, and I felt the language used widened that chasm,” she wrote.

    “Female genital mutilation” is the language used in the federal statute, 18 U.S.C. §116, under which Doctors Jumana Nagarwala and Fakhruddin Attarwere charged in Michigan. The cases are the first of their kind in the United States, and have rocketed the predominately Muslim practice of FGM to the forefront of the American public consciousness. While the New York Times has used the term FGM in the recent past, the flurry of reporting on the issue in the wake of the Michigan arrests prompted the editorial decision to avoid that language.

    FGM is also the preferred terminology of international institutions like the United Nations Population Fund and UNICEF. The term replaced the once-common “female circumcision” as the preferred manner of referring to the practice among anti-FGM campaigners in the 1990s. The Times‘ Dugger explained to readers that she found that term, prominent when the details of the tradition were not widely understood in the West, “euphemistic” and favored the term “cutting.”

    Millions of girls in the Muslim world are still subjected to FGM, especially on the continent of Africa, where UNICEF estimates 98 percent of Somali and 87 percent of Egyptian women have had their genitals mutilated. The degree of mutilation varies by region and religious sect, but all types of FGM involve the removal of parts of a young girl’s genitalia.

    This can range from the mere cutting away of parts of the clitoral hood to the wholesale removal of the clitoris, labia majoria, or labia minora. The most extreme form of FGM is called “infibulation,” in which virtually all external genitalia is removed and the wound sewn together, leaving only a single tiny hole from which to urinate and menstruate until the girl is married.

    Until recently, the practice was virtually unknown in the West, but the ongoing Nagarwala-Attar prosecution suggests girls from around the American Midwest have been being brought to the Detroit area to have their genitals mutilated since at least 2005.

    FBI Director James Comey addressed the issue Wednesday in his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. He used the term “female genital mutilation.”

    Who wants these people here? NO ONE. Why are they here? Because we have traitors in Congress.

    GET THEM ALL OUT OF HERE. We don't want this crap in our news, let alone in our country. Get all these people out of here.

    My recent NewsReal blog on Naomi Wolf and female genital mutilation(FGM) – also posted at and — has triggered a heated debate in the blogs’ comments sections on all three sites. The key arguments in these three sections personify some of the Left’s key tactics in its romance with tyranny and terror. It is crucial to shed light on these arguments in order to crystallize the maliciousness, dishonesty and heartlessness which lie at the center of the leftist agenda. It also helps strengthen our efforts to fight on behalf of tyranny’s victims, which, in this case, are the hundreds of thousands of young girls who face the barbarity of female genital mutilation yearly around the world.

    The recent controversy surrounds a Frontpage interview I did with Ines Laufer, an anti-FGM activist. Along with Lucy Mashua, a Kenyan victim of FGM, she is presently leading a new campaign,, to protect girls from this barbarity.

    In my NewsReal blog, I raised the question of whether Naomi Wolf, who postures as a feminist concerned with women’s rights, will be at all interested in joining Laufer’s and Mashua’s campaign. The issue at stake here is that leftist feminists pretend they care about women but when it comes to women who suffer under adversary cultures, they refuse to act, since doing so will legitimize their own societies which they despise and work to destroy. Thus, millions of women under Islamic gender apartheid have been abandoned by leftist feminists, whose devotions lie with their anti-Western and anti-American faiths. The scholar and true feminist Phyllis Chesler has documented this phenomenon powerfully in her book The Death of Feminism.

    To stress the main essence of this problem regarding Wolf and the hypocrites in her “feminist” camp, I asked in my blog:

    “Will Naomi Wolf join the battle? For instance, will she denounce the Islamic theology and teachings that lead to the mutilation of Muslim girls in Islamic countries?”

    My critics who seek to delegitimize my main point have now come forward and think they are scoring a powerful blow against me by, typically, pointing out that FGM is not exclusively Muslim. This is a key traditional tactic of the Left. In order to whitewash the barbarity of adversary cultures, they consistently exonerate it by equivocating about how some kind of injustice exists somewhere else — and, especially, of course, how it exists in our own society and civilization.

    Thus, some of the critics revel in how Lucy Semiyan Mashua, who is leading the new campaign against FGM, is from Kenya and comes from the Massai, a Christian African tribe. This is how their mental gymnastics work: FGM is not just an Islamic practice, so we can’t say anything critical about Islam when it is connected to FGM. This way we can’t say that anything is really better than anything else, and we especially can’t say that our civilization is better than Islam’s or that we have anything to teach Islamic societies.

    This kind of thinking deliberately incapacitates any action that could be implemented on behalf of Islam’s victims. If you try to do something on behalf of the victims, which begins with honesty about who is perpetrating the crime and why, the critics come forward and say: “Hey, but it isn’t just Muslims that do it.” Then the critics feel really good about themselves for pointing this out and, yes, go home and do nothing about the subject at hand. So in the case of FGM, the leftist feels self-satisfied that he’s pointed out that it’s not just Islam that does it, he engages in no action to help the victims and the mutilation of girls under Islam continues.

    Naturally Muslims are not the only ones who perpetrate FGM. Of course, FGM is practised outside of Islam, including under non-Islamic African tribal cultures. I never said anywhere that FGM is only practised by Muslims. But the key issue here is that Muslims are the principle religious group that practices this sexual violence against women. And the reality is that if you are a victim of FGM, then the chances are very high that you live in a Muslim household and in a Muslim culture.

    Now within the context of Islamic FGM, the barbarity is kept alive and legitimized by Islamic theology. This is the case in Egypt, where this crime against girls is waged on a massive level. The Egyptian government banned FGM in 1996, but an Egyptian court overturned the ban in July 1997 because of the ferocious uprising of the Islamic clerics, who fervently pointed to Islamic teachings to re-implement this war against women’s sexuality. The Muslim mutilators pointed to traditional Islamic teachings that sanction FGM, which include the Prophet Muhammad’s instruction that circumcising girls is “a preservation of honor for women.” Also, 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.

    Keeping FGM institutionalized also helps the Islamic mutilators keep the structure of Islamic gender apartheid in place. Keeping FGM legitimized and at work is one of the most effective means to keeping women subjugated and caged. After all, the strategy behind amputating the clitoris is clearly to kill the woman’s sexual desire and pleasure, which, in this diseased misogynist mindset, reduces the chances that she will ever toy with the notions of autonomy, equality and self-determination.

    Question: How can we possibly help Egyptian girls, and other girls who are targeted for FGM under Islam, if we do not confront the philosophy behind the institutionalization of this violence? You cannot save Muslim girls from FGM without crystallizing what it is within the religion that gives fertile soil and legitimation to FGM. The way to save human beings from this violence is to isolate those teachings and to have them nullified – and this involves confronting certain Islamic teachings.

    Nowhere am I saying that we don’t work against FGM in non-Muslim environments. We do that too. We do it all. But we can’t save the victims of Islamic mutilation if we are not honest about the Islamic impulses for that mutilation.

    So the main point of my Newsreal blog, where I asked whether Naomi Wolf would join the battle against FGM, was to point out the hypocrisy of the Left’s silence on this matter. It’s a silence that stems from the fact that leftists like Wolf know that admitting the inferiority of an adversarial culture will legitimize Western civilization, a recognition that they cannot make without risking their entire identities and social belongings. 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.

    What a revolting image: the smug leftist turning his back on the victims of Islamic FGM because a non-Muslim somewhere perpetrated FGM. How does this self-satisfied inhumanity save the Muslim girls who will be mutilated in the future? How does it help the non-Muslim girls?

    Hypothetical question: if we could have saved the Jewish inmates from Auschwitz before they were murdered, would it have been right to abort the rescue operation (which would have involved an honesty about Nazi doctrine) upon discovering that someone, somewhere, in some other place, said or did something anti-Semitic? Hey, it’s not just the Nazis that do it. Would that have sufficed to justify not lifting a hand to rescue Auschwitz’s inmates?

    Some other connected tactics surface in the debate in the comments sections on my blog. One critic thinks he is making a big point by stating that Morocco, one of the countries that Wolf visited during her political pilgrimage, does not practise FGM. But whatever the extent to which FGM is practised or not in Morocco, the point is that it is practised in Egypt and Jordan – where Wolf visited and says she found a vibrant sexuality lurking under the veil.

    Another critic thinks she has scored a knockout blow against me by revealing that she did a google search and found that Wolf has written about FGM. The issue is not whether Wolf has written about FGM. The issue is whether she has condemned the societies and cultures within which they are practised and done so on the premise that our society is more humane and has something to teach those societies and cultures. She has not. In The Beauty Myth, for instance, Wolf makes a critique of FGM only in passing, with a "everyone is guilty" theme that ends up comparing FGM with modern day breast surgery.
    The core issue is that Wolf does not voice her moral indignation against Islamic FGM and the Islamic theology that serves as its fertile soil. She does not condemn African tribal FGM for its African tribal roots, but in the context of how a universal misogyny is somehow guilty or responsible.

    Thus, in the Islamic context, for instance, it is clear that someone like Wolf will never act, because protecting little girls’ genitals is less important for her than protecting herself from the charge of being Islamophobic. Her anti-Americanism, ultimately, has to be prioritized in a sacred and protected place.

    In essence, because of Naomi Wolf and her like-minded feminist comrades, here is the situation: if you are a victimized girl being abused in a Muslim culture, then you have the unfortunate distinction of being part of a group that the West and FGM activists have difficulty helping, because the lib-Left has made sure that the Muslim culture and religion can never be criticized and, therefore, that its sufferers can never be protected or saved.

    This is just another chapter of a long dark and grotesque story – the story of the Left, with its hands drenched in human blood, sacrificing human beings on the altar of utopian ideals.

    It's all disgusting, we can't import this low life ignorant tribal crap into our country. Fire anyone involved in letting these people into our country and then deport every single one of these low-life pond scum out of here.
