UK Cop Says Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) Too “Nuanced” To Prosecute

Robert Spencer at the Geller Report: UK Cop Says FGM Too “Nuanced” to Prosecute:

Recently Ivan Balhatchet, the British National Police Chiefs’ Council’s lead on honour violence, was asked by a former police officer why there had not yet been a single conviction for female genital mutilation (FGM) in the entire United Kingdom, despite there having been tens of thousands of cases of it recorded since 1985. Balhatchet’s response unwittingly revealed the priorities of Theresa May’s “diverse,” shattered, staggering, dhimmi Britain.

Amid a great deal of meaningless bureaucratic verbiage, Balhatchet let it slip by way of explanation that “there are many nuances to this crime type.” So apparently it is because of these “many nuances” that practitioners of female genital mutilation could continue to operate with impunity in Britain. Why not arrest them? It’s complicated.

In reality, it isn’t complicated at all, and there aren’t “many nuances,” either. No, Balhatchet, there is only one “nuance,” and you and I and Theresa May and all of Britain knows what that one nuance is: the people who practice female genital mutilation are Muslims, and you don’t want to offend them, and so you don’t prosecute FGM cases. It really isn’t any more “nuanced” than that, although you will batter your interlocutors with all manner of bafflegab to try to cover up that fact.

Sweden Changing: 150,000 Women Undergo FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), Authorities Admit Large Areas UNDER ISLAMIST RULE

Sweden Changing: 150,000 Women Undergo FGM, Authorities Admit Large Areas UNDER ISLAMIST RULE:

Living under the world’s only “feminist government” is becoming increasingly dangerous, especially for women. Large parts of the country, including its capital Stockholm, are effectively ruled by radical Muslims.

WARNING: This article contains graphic descriptions of FGM (Female Genital Mutilation). Content is not suitable for young children and may not be safe for workplace viewing.

A new report provides disturbing insights regarding changes in the fabric of Swedish society that have followed an unprecedented influx of Muslim refugees and migrants.

The report is partly written by SVT, the Swedish state media, and concludes that at least 150,000 women in Sweden have experienced genital mutilation. This brutal procedure can involve partial or complete removal of the clitoris (i.e., clitoridectomy, clitorectomy or infibulation) plus excision of the labia as well. All too often, this operation is performed in less-than-sterile conditions and, just as frequently, without anesthesia

Germaine Greer justifies child marriage, says female genital mutilation is “not Islam”

Germaine Greer justifies child marriage, says female genital mutilation is “not Islam”:

We see it again and again with feminists: defending Islam trumps their concern for the rights of women, just as we see with gay rights activists such as Theresa Sparks and Chris Stedman that defending Islam trumps their concern for the persecution of gays in Muslim countries. What is behind this odd calculus is a mystery, but there is no doubt that in the Leftist hierarchy of pet causes, the defense of Islam today overrides everything else.

Greer is, of course, flatly wrong about female genital mutilation, which is indeed sanctioned in Islam (as is child marriage). “Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) (by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the bazr ‘clitoris’ [this is called khufaadh ‘female circumcision’]).” — ‘Umdat al-Salik e4.3, translated by Mark Durie, The Third Choice, p. 64

Fears of being branded ‘racist’ make public services ignore Female Genital Mutilation

Fears of being branded ‘racist’ make public services ignore Female Genital Mutilation:

During a recent conference in the Swedish city of Gothenburg on the topic of female genital mutilation (FGM), experts dealing with the issue in Europe revealed some alarming facts and trends. Not only is the number of girls falling victim to the cultural tradition increasing, but they are getting younger as well. To make matters worse, many professionals working in health and social services in European countries do not report cases of sexual disfigurement fearing that, if they were to do so, they might be singled out as ‘racists’.
