It's OK, it's Multiculturalism

Near the end of the article we are informed:
The practice crosses ethnic and cultural lines and is not tied to a particular religion.
And yet, my inner "islamophobe" has to ask, which other cultures besides some Islamic cultures practice this hidious rite?
LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - An Ethiopian immigrant was convicted Wednesday of the genital mutilation of his 2-year-old daughter and was sentenced to 10 years in prison in what was believed to be the first such criminal case in the United States.

Khalid Adem, 30, was found guilty of aggravated battery and cruelty to children. Prosecutors said he used scissors to remove his daughter's clitoris in his family's Atlanta-area apartment in 2001. The child's mother, Fortunate Adem, said she did not discover it until more than a year later.
The father, of course, maintains his innocence and blames his ex-wife's family. Who cares?

The important point here, is that female genital mutilation has been imported to the United States. We aren't told the religion of the family, but just the fact that there is a prominent disclaimer in the article, tells us that they are Muslim, the most coddled religion in the West.

Will women's rights groups protest this practice before it gets a chance to spread here? Or has it already taken root but kept quiet? Or does multiculturalism trump women's rights? What other Islamic dysfuntions will we be asked to ignore in the future? Will Muslims be allowed to practice slavery in the U.S.? After all, (disclaimer) slavery has been practiced throughout history and around the world, including in parts of the United States. We will have to ignore the fact that slavery is still practiced in parts of the Muslim world. We are only allowed to focus on past sins of the West.

This episode should serve to remind us that Islamic supremecists do want to inflict their beliefs on the rest of the world. Usually they institute a small challange against Western sensibilities. It could be something as simple as demanding to be able to wear a veil in court or on a driver's license photo. It could be Muslim cab drivers refusing service to people carrying alcohol or a blind person with a leader dog. Or it could be tacit acceptance of female genital mutilation and slavery because feminist leaders who demand that women have equal access to college sports ignore those little girls being forced to undergo ritual genital mutilation. It could also be cowardly newspapers whitewashing the problem to avoid having to face the truth that Islamic supremecists are out to recreate our society into their own totalitarian dream culture.
