Some of the brutalization of Muslim girls and women in the UK is coming to light. For example this article appeared in the Telegraph on April 22, 2012 (hat tip to Will). Excerpt:
As many as 100,000 women in Britain have undergone female genital mutilations with medics in the UK offering to carry out the illegal procedure on girls as young as 10, it has been reported.A similar, more detailed article also appeared in Mail Online on April 22, 2012, and has numerous comments. Furthermore, the latter article brings out the difficulty with legal procedures involving these crimes against females:
Research suggests that every year up to 6,000 girls in London are at risk of the potentially fatal procedure, and more than 22,000 in the UK as a whole....
Police have failed to bring forward a single conviction.No mention of "Islam" or "Muslim" appears in either article, of course, in a nod to "Islamophobia" and political correctness.
Only two doctors have ever been struck off by the General Medical Council.
Yes, both honor killings and FGM do predate Islam. That said, who is committing these horrific practices today – even in the West, where the code of law forbids such vileness? Mostly Muslims? Exclusively Muslims?
Again, the actual numbers of honor killings and genital mutilations in both the West and around the world remain unknown.
