Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
Over one year ago, a Muslim doctor and his wife in Detroit Michigan were arrested for performing the barbaric Islamic practice of female genital mutilation on several young Muslim girls. On November 20 2018, Michigan’s U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman dismissed the charges brought against them citing the law which they were arrested under is a violation of the United States Constitution. Clearly a victory for those wanting to implement sharia law within our country.
In his 28 page opinion, Friedman states” Congress overstepped its bounds by legislating to prohibit FGM … FGM is a ‘local criminal activity’ which, in keeping with long-standing tradition and our federal system of government, is for the states to regulate, not Congress.” Unfortunately, the defendants cannot be charged with state crimes at this time.
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) also known as khatan, is a horrific practice performed on Muslim young girls before reaching puberty. There are four types which are:
- Type 1 (clitoridectomy) – removing part or all of the clitoris.
- Type 2 (excision) – removing part or all of the clitoris and the inner labia (lips that surround the vagina), with or without removal of the labia majora (larger outer lips).
- Type 3 (infibulation) – narrowing of the vaginal opening by creating a seal, formed by cutting and repositioning the labia.
- Other harmful procedures to the female genitals, including pricking, piercing, cutting, scraping or burning the area
The majority of these done within the United States are by Muslim doctors in clinics where no specific training is received. FGM is a painful, barbaric, and antiquated sex crime against women, which is illegal in only 27 states.
Pain killers and antiseptics aren’t generally used, and FGM is often carried out using knives, scissors, scalpels, pieces of glass or razor blades and most often happens against a girl’s will without her consent, and may be forcibly restrained. Yes in America.
But it really isn’t a surprise, since Islamic law is forcing its way into our states. As this case was ruled to be “unconstitutional”, because of a technicality, (Congress added it to the Interstate Commerce law) one must wonder was it also dismissed because it is viewed as a religious practice by Muslims? We will never know that of course, but it is in fact Islamic law that all men and women be “circumcised”.
In the classic book of Islamic law, “The Reliance of the Traveller, in section E4.3 it reads”
A question begging to be asked is where are the Muslim feminists like Linda Sarsour or Drost Kokoye? Why are they not protesting on behalf of their own young girls whose lives are being transformed everyday by this procedure?
Well, get used to this America. Islamic law..Sharia, is no longer creeping into our society, it’s gushing in. And with the November 6th election of 54 Muslims to various State, local and Federal positions, it’s going to get worse.
Muslims now in office:
