Islam Outlaws Female Genital Mutilation

Islam Outlaws Female Genital Mutilation:

Praise to be Allah! (And it's about freaking time!) I am speechless with joy at this news.

RAUSDORF, Germany, December 4 -- Ten of the highest ranked scholars from all over the world met at the Azhar University under the patronage of the Grand Mufti of Egypt, Prof. Dr. Ali Goma'a. After listening to several international physicians, they pronounced the sensational decision to classify the custom of female genital mutilation (FGM) as punishable aggression and crime against humanity. As a result, the custom can no longer be practiced by Muslims. Now awareness of this decision has to be spread in the 33 affected countries.

Enforcement will be tough, but it's a step in the right direction. What a stupid, barbaric custom!
