Stop Female Genital Mutilation

In looking at my petition, I saw another one that is really worth signing and promoting:

Stop Female Genital Cutting

It's about stopping Female Genital Mutilation. It doesn't say anything about Islam, but just getting rid of this hideous practice would probably help restrain Islamic encroachment. Even if it doesn't, stopping FGM is worth doing regardless.

This is one of those causes that can help force multiculturalists to choose between multiculturalism and human rights — a choice and a distinction that should be made. When they conflict, human rights should trump multiculturalism, as this issue makes crystal clear. If this hierarchy of values was clearer to more people, I believe much of the resistance we meet in telling people about Islam's relentless encroachment would evaporate.

There's lot of hypocrisy in all these multiculturalists.
If I give a smack to my wife after a disagreement, I'll be called "sexist" and treated as a criminal. Of course beating somebody is not at all a nice thing. On the other hand, however, no reactions comes out to the mutilation of MILLIONS of unfortunate women who are once and for all deprived the greatest joy with intolerable pain...NOTHING is said against this shame. These "multiculturists" say "It's their CULTURE!!!"
Where are the feminist organisations, where are the human rights committees to protest against this perpetuated crime?
It is estimated that about 100 MILLION women are mutilated.
This is a shame for the civilised world...

Coincidentally, Michelle Malkin has a post up about this subject:

“We don’t know why we do it, but we will never stop because Islam and our elders require it.”

A Muslim mother in Iraq lures her seven-year-old into a female genital circumcision by lying to her about a “party.” A half-dozen other girls are also tricked. The Washington Post documented the torment.

Go here. But not if you have a queasy stomach or a weak heart.

The mother of 7-year-old Sheelan’s parting thought?

“We don’t know why we do it, but we will never stop because Islam and our elders require it.”

An epigram that explains a lot of barbaric behavior these days. Year. Centuries.

These people are reduced below the level of beasts...
calling them people is just an exaggeration, calling them beasts is an offence towards animals, for no animal in nature procures pleasure in amputating its own progeny...
these creatures have become reduced to "breeding like rats devices"; what a shame for the 21st century...
Congratulations from Greece for this excellent site,
God bless your efforts...
