The horror of this bloody, painful procedure to remove the ability of a Muslim girl to experience any sexual pleasure is on the rise in the West as Muslim immigration increases. Cutting the clitoris of a woman is an Islamic precept that removes the ability to experience sexual pleasure (thereby making a woman less apt to cheat, or enjoy life, for that matter). There is absolutely no health benefit. It is a misogyny. And don't think it doesn't affect American society. Just last year the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement recommending that doctors perform this "ritual nick" (we exposed it on the net and it was withdrawn after the ensuing public outcry). Many Muslims in America support clitoridectomies and justify them as religious freedom. In one state in which anti-FGM legislation is currently working its way through the legislative process, one legislator reports receiving a phone call from a Muslim constituent urging her to oppose the legislation as ‘a conspiracy against the Muslim community’” (more here).
I suppose we should be grateful that the news report didn't say "Asian" holy man or "immigrant" holy man or holy man of "North African descent" or some such nonsense in their continuing campaign to obfuscate the facts and true nature of Islam.
