How the American media covers [up] Islamic practice of female genital mutilation (FGM)

Female genital mutilation is an Islamic ritual rampant in the Muslim world.

With the increase of Muslim immigration into the United States, so, too, have clitordectomies increased. There have been at least 500,000 girls in U.S. who have undergone genital mutilation, or are at risk of having it done.

The enemedia always goes out of its way to censor such stories or they scrub Islam from any connection with this misogynistic Islamic practice. Dissemblers and deceivers claim that FGM is a cultural phenomenon, not religious. FGM is an Islamic cultural phenomenon. FGM is found only within and adjacent to Muslim communities (source: Gerry Mackie, “Ending Footbinding and Infibulation: A Convention Account,” American Sociological Review).

Now that no less than three Muslim doctors have been arrested in Michigan for performing female genital mutilations, the media is rushing to scrub Islam from this Islamic story.

Over 96% of the girls in Egypt, the largest Muslim country in the Middle East, have been cut.

CDC says at least 500,000 females in U.S. have undergone genital mutilation, or are at risk of having it done.

Mariya Taher was 7 years old,  vacationing in India with her family, when one day her mother took her to a run-down apartment building without explaining why.

She remembers climbing some stairs, opening a door and seeing older women in a room. There was laughter, and the place seemed cheerful.

But then came the betrayal.

The child ended up on the floor. Her dress was lifted up.

“I remember something sharp down there and then I remember crying,” Taher, now 34, recalls. “I remember my mom comforting me afterward and holding me in her lap.”…
