Islamists ‘order mass FGM for Iraqi women’

The Times Hugh Tomlinson July 25 2014

Islamist militants have ordered all women and girls in the Iraqi city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation as they impose their brutal interpretation of Sharia, the United Nations said yesterday.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the al-Qaeda splinter group Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (Isis), was said to have issued a fatwa as “a gift to the people” ordering all females aged 11 to 46 to submit to forced circumcision.

Is this report true or is it propaganda?
Time will tell.

The thing is we have such a low opinion of these groups that we are happy to believe it is true.

How does a self proclaimed peaceful religion get such a bad reputation? By showing us again and again that whatever their words, the actions are violent.

I am sure the majority of Muslims are peaceful.  But they don’t really count.  There is a significant proportion who are not peaceful and it seems to me that the so-called peaceful ones collude with the violent ones.  How?  They don’t denounce them; speak out against them.  Why not?  Either they have sympathies or they are too afraid.  Members of  this peaceful religion live in fear!

That peaceful.
