Isis orders all women and girls in Mosul to undergo FGM, says UN
UN says 'fatwa' issued by militant group in and around Iraqi city could affect 4 million

The militant group Islamic State (Isis) has ordered all girls and women in and around Iraq's northern city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation, the United Nations says.

The "fatwa" issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect 4 million women and girls, the UN resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq, Jacqueline Badcock, told reporters in Geneva by videolink from Irbil.

"This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed," she said.

"This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists," she added.

No one was immediately available for comment from Isis, which has led an offensive through northern and western Iraq.

They don't like getting any closer than Morocco. Liberals are easily frightened.

Liberals are cowards.
They only attack those that they are sure won't attack them back. muslims scare the crap out of them, so liberals give them a wide berth.

Isis 'ordering female genital mutilation' in Iraq - UN

Quote
All females aged 11 and 46 in the northern city must undergo the procedure, according to an Isis edict, UN official Jacqueline Badcock said.

She said the unprecedented decree was of grave concern.

Some bloggers suggest that the edict, or fatwa, may be a fabrication aimed at discrediting Isis.

Iraq is facing a radical Isis-led insurgency, with Mosul and other cities in the north-west under militant control.

The ritual cutting of girls' genitals is practised by some African, Middle Eastern and Asian communities in the belief it prepares them for adulthood or marriage.

Will we hear from Mavis Leno? She has been vocal about this in the past.

Because they are tolerant of other opinions and values and we are not when we say this is wrong.

You see, FMG is just another way of looking at things and we must be TOLERANT, and not critical.

Don't you get it?   :smokin:
Character still matters.  It always matters.

BBC is reporting it may be a fake.  Let's hope so.  The women there have a tough enough time with these horrors on top of it.

It is because 'libs/progs' are in a defacto alliance with radical Islam. They find common ground in that they both want to tear down the world by any means necessary.
