The Midwest of the United States has been hotbed of radical Muslim activity in recent years.
Michigan in particular has suffered due to its status of having one of the highest Muslim populations in the country. ISIS threats are prevalent, and Muslim immigrants both in Michigan and the rest of the country continue to embrace of aspects of Islamic culture, refusing to assimilate into American society.
One of the more barbaric practices brought to America by Muslims in the Middle East and Africa is the process of female genital mutilation, or female circumcision.
One doctor in Michigan is now being accused of performing the practice on young girls whose Muslim parents sometimes drove from out of state to see the surgery performed.
From The Daily Wire:
On Wednesday, the Department of Justice took the first step in stopping the monstrous practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) in the United States, announcing that the federal government has charged female doctor Jumana Nagarwala, M.D., of Northville, Michigan, with mutilating girls between the ages of six and eight.
Acting U.S. Attorney Daniel Lemisch stated that:
“Female genital mutilation constitutes a particularly brutal form of violence against women and girls. It is also a serious federal felony in the United States. The practice has no place in modern society and those who perform FGM on minors will be held accountable under federal law.”
Lemisch’s stance has the strong support of former Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The Somalian-born author, speaker and activist led a campaign to stop female genital mutilation when she was a member of Dutch Parliament, and received death threats from Muslims as a result.
Ayaan Hirsi Ali was forced to undergo female genital mutilation as a five-year-old child, and categorically condemns the practice
The outspoken anti-Muslim crusader has unsurprisingly been attacked by Muslims, most notably the Women’s March Organizer Linda Sarsour. Radical Muslim Sarsour harassed Ali on Twitter and stated that she would take Ali’s “vagina away” and that ex-Muslims like her “don’t deserve to be women.”
Oh, there’s that tolerance and feminism from the left I’ve heard so much about! If leftists can’t even condemn female genital mutilation for the horror that it is, how can we trust their opinion on anything else?
Short answer: we can’t, and those who love freedom must continue to fight against injustices like this.
