Yes, it is “appalling” to Rep. Omar to answer a question about condemning FGM, which is rampant in her native Somalia, and practiced in Muslim communities across the United States.
Female genital mutilation (FGM) or clitoridectomy is an Islamic tradition, rampant in the Muslim world.
More than 500,000 girls in the US are at risk of this mutilating ‘procedure’.
Muslim doctors arrested in Minnesota for cutting girls are using a ‘religious defense’.
Female genital mutilation (FGM) or clitoridectomy is an Islamic tradition, rampant in the Muslim world. Hadiths have Muhammad justifying it. Over 96% of the women in Egypt have been clitoridectomized. Back in 2008, devout members of the Egyptian parliament have made female genital mutilation (circumcision) legal again in Egypt. With the advent of increased Muslim immigration, this has become a pressing issue here in America. Campaigns like the one described here are foredoomed to failure, because they don’t address the Islamic roots of the problem.
FGM fact sheet:
The number of women and girls at risk for female genital mutilation (FGM) in the United States has more than doubled in the past 10 years. More than half a million women and girls in the U.S. are at risk of undergoing FGM in the U.S. or abroad, or have already undergone the procedure, including 166,173 under the age of 18, according to the Population Reference Bureau (PRB).
Dissemblers and deceivers claim that FGM is cultural phenomenon, not religious. FGM is an Islamic cultural phenomenon. FGM is found only within and adjacent to Muslim communities.
Unlike male circumcision, female genital mutilation has no health benefits for girls and women.
Female genital mutilation (FGM) involves partial or total removal of the clitoris, causing injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.
Femal genital mutilation procedure has no health benefits for girls and women. It removes all possibility of sexual pleasure. It is the worst kind of misogyny.
Procedures can cause severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, as well as complications in childbirth and increased risk of newborn deaths.
More than 200 million girls and women alive today have been cut in 30 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, where FGM is concentrated.
FGM is mostly carried out on young girls between infancy and age 15.
FGM is a violation of the human rights of girls and women.
FGM is found only within and adjacent to Muslim communities (source: Gerry Mackie, “Ending Footbinding and Infibulation: A Convention Account,” American Sociological Review).
Where are the feminists? This is who is leading the Democrat Party. It is a stunning indictment on the mainstream media for glorifying and defending this brutal savage.

Ilhan Omar calls question about condemning female genital mutilation ‘appalling’
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar snapped back at a moderator during a panel discussion at the Muslim Caucus Education Collective’s 2019 Conference on Tuesday, calling his question “appalling.”
President of Muslims for Progressive Values, Ani Zonneveld, reportedly asked the freshman congresswoman to condemn the practice of female genital mutilation that is practiced by some Muslim communities.
After calling her question “appalling,” Omar continued by expressing frustration that she is repeatedly asked to condemn different groups and practices, saying, “Should I make a schedule? Like, does this need to be on repeat every five minutes? Should I be like, ‘so, today I forgot to condemn al Qaeda, so here’s the al Qaeda one. Today I forgot to condemn [female genital mutilation], so here it goes. Today I forgot to condemn Hamas, so here it goes.’ It is a very frustrating question that comes up. You can look up my record. I’ve voted for bills doing exactly what you are asking me to do.”
