Tariq Ramadan calls MEMRI “vicious Islamophobic agency” for identifying Muslim leader justifying FGM in U.S.


Pseudo-moderate Tariq Ramadan is a silver-tongued stealth jihadist. His grandfather, Hassan al Banna, founded the Muslim Brotherhood, and Ramadan is the 21st century al Banna. He is renowned as a moderate, but has never preached the reform or rejection of anything in Islam.

As of 2009, Tariq Ramadan was persona non grata in Tunisia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Libya and Syria.

Under President Bush, Tariq Ramadan was banned from entering the US.

Under President Obama, Tariq Ramadan was welcomed in the US with open arms and the jihad-aligned academia followed suit.

On September 19, 2006, the government formally denied Ramadan’s visa application. A State Department statement said: “A U.S. consular officer has denied Dr. Tariq Ramadan’s visa application. The consular officer concluded that Dr. Ramadan was inadmissible based solely on his actions, which constituted providing material support to a terrorist organization.”

Ramadan himself remarked:

“The U.S. government’s actions in my case seem, at least to me, to have been arbitrary and myopic. But I am encouraged by the unwavering support I have received from ordinary Americans, civic groups and particularly from scholars, academic organizations, and the ACLU.”

The left loves him. They sure do love their killers. Tariq Ramadan is revered in academic circles. Great American thinkers, true scholars of Islam like Ibn Warraq and Wafa Sultan, are banned from university campuses, but this annihilationist is welcome.

“Tariq Ramadan calls MEMRI a ‘vicious Islamophobic agency’ for having identified a Muslim leader justifying female genital mutilations in the U.S.,” Point de Bascule, June 16, 2017:

On May 19, 2017, Imam Shaker Elsayed justified female genital mutilations (FGM) in a sermon at Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church (Virginia). The organization MEMRI published the video and a transcript of the sermon on its website.

The Imam defends FGM by claiming that it prevents girls from becoming hypersexually active.

After the leadership of the mosque has refused to fire its Imam over his stance, one of the mosque’s directors publicly resigned from his position.

This is the context in which Tariq Ramadan chose to weigh in on the issue on his Facebook page.

Tariq Ramadan condemned as “vicious” and “Islamophobic” the organization MEMRI, the messenger that published the sermon justifying FGM, and Ramadan stated that the debate on the issue should take place among Muslims. “Instead of exposing people, let us have an open internal debate,” Tariq Ramadan wrote.

While declaring himself opposed to FGM, Tariq Ramadan acknowledges that some Muslim scholars endorse the practice: “Even though I am against these practises as I think it is not the right Islamic interpretation, it cannot be denied that it was condoned by some Muslim scholars (even contemporary ones).”

This last excerpt completely contradicts fellow travelers of Islamists such as Charles Taylor who claim that FGM are not part of Islam because “it is not mentioned in the Koran.”

Islamic justifications of female genital mutilations are not based on the Koran but on hadiths, which are texts allegedly describing words, actions, and habits of the founder of Islam. Scholar Youssef Qaradawi mentions one of those hadiths in his justification of FGM

According to article e4.3 in the Sharia manual Umdat Al-Salik, whose English translation contains an endorsement by the Muslim Brotherhood-linked  International Institute of Islamic Thought, the excision of the clitoris is obligatory for the Shafii school of thought in Islam while being only optional for Hanbalis and “a mere courtesy to the husband” for Hanafis.
