In response to local vegan MP’s post about slaughterhouses’ dubious conduct in the humane treatment of animals – she did not mention halal or kosher slaughter methods …
Video every kill by law. Method of slaughter to be included in food labeling. Stop meat that has been slaughtered according to Islamic or Jewish hard line religious law being put into the food chain without being labelled as such – the cult followers insist that their meat is labelled – ordinary people don’t want to subsidize this gross form of occult practice that is cruel to animals. Stop cult followers from cruelly slitting the throats of animals in the name of their idols – this is gross – they are more concerned with religious doctrine than the humane treatment of animals – they are quite prepared to skin the peni of their male children (this should be legislated against) so there is not much hope of these religious zealots reforming their bronze age cult without legislation. It was sexist not to include boys and intersex children in the legislation that claims to protect Somali heritage Muslim British girls from these barbaric cult rituals. Shame on you Politicians – for allowing that to happen – it was because the Politically correct had a crisis of cause – and Mr Rothschild wanders around the corridors of power without being elected – religious “freedom” or protect all children from their parents desire to mutilate them – you guys chose to let boys and intersex kids be cut about for an easy political life. Disgusting. Sexist, Discriminates against Somalis in favour of Jews and other Muslims. Totally messed up morals – inept application of ethics in the unsuccesful legislation – how can you tell a person -“you can dock your son’s penis on the kitchen table if you like – but don’t send your girl to a top Egyptian surgeon who will take only a symbolic nick from her genitalia to acknowledge the hadith”. Change the law so all children are protected – no child has religious freedom to avoid their penis being skinned – no baby has a religion. It’s touching you are concerned for animal welfare – but still in this country baby boys die from circumcision operations that are totally medically uncalled for. Barbarians. Many modern Jews no longer do this blood sacrifice ritual anymore – so the rest of the cult followers can follow suite. Religious freedom is not license to be cruel to children and animals. I will be following your efforts on these fronts. Is genital mutilation a Labour Policy so long as it is not a girl?
“Chaplin accused the U.N. of double standards by seeking to ban female genital mutilation but allowing male circumcision. The U.N. and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have campaigned for years to end the practise of any female genital cutting for non-medical reasons and have stressed that it is not comparable to male circumcision.”
In my view, the cutting of any child for religious rituals, medical fashion, or parental preference, is despicable.
FGM is directly comparable to MGM.
RUSSIAN ORTHODOX ARCHPRIEST OPPOSES BAN ON FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION
UK viewers will not understand the first comment as the decision to circumcise is not a common one in the UK – you either abuse your child in this way because your religion, Islam or Orthodox Judaism, demands it – or you don’t even think about it – as the vast majority of native Britons born since the formation of the NHS (National Health Service) don’t think about it. Routine infant circumcision, MGM, was recognised as of no medical value and therefore not funded in the newly formed NHS in 1940s Britain.
Debate from 2015 (4 minutes). “African studies”, “30%”, and several other “facts” need to be checked and will be found lacking, as is the banner claiming MGM reduces the risk of penile cancer – penile cancer is extremely rare.
It is a bit silly asking a Jewish or Muslim Doctor to comment fairly on this issue. Fox should have got a non-religious Doctor to comment as well or instead of. Religious precedent for parents’ “preferences” soon crops up in the debate which was originally about rights of the child and possible medical benefits or lack thereof. Although religious precedent suggests many barbaric things concerning non heterosexual relationships modern Jews do not do them – why should MGM be different – why abuse children?
Attitudes, even in cultures where genital mutilation is the norm, are changing. This person paid a heavy price. Brave husband and wife for standing up to cultural pressure for their daughter …
“… Olalowo Hammed Olalekan and his wife, Modinat, were harassed after being pressured repeatedly by family members and members of their community to bring their daughter for circumcision as was usual with traditional requirements.
According to New Telegraph, the couple have reportedly fled the shores of Nigeria for the safety of their children. …”

Death for another child. Christians in Egypt guilty of FGM …
“Despite the ban in 2008, female genital mutilation (FGM) is still widespread in Egypt, especially in rural areas. It is practised among Muslims as well as Egypt’s minority Christians.
The law led to the first prison sentence against a doctor in Egypt in January 2015, with the girl’s father in that case given a three-month suspended sentence.
On Sunday, Mousa’s sister had just undergone the operation before she was sent in for surgery.
The girls’ mother is a nurse, while their late father was a surgeon. The operation was being carried out by a registered female doctor, according to Abdel-Samee”

It is best to watch the article – there are no explicit scenes of cutting –
Me: I watched Sky News’ report on FGM in Puntland, Somalia. For people who have no idea about FGM – like most UK natives – it was informative. The reporter stated that Sky tried to persuade the Mother not to do it. Sky informed the local Police – who were not interested as there is no law against FGM in Puntland. They covered the terrible consequences for the girls. They hid the identity of the girl. They covered the campaign to legislate against FGM in Puntland. For someone like Hibo Wardere
, it must be deeply upsetting to watch this report as it must bring back memories one would rather not have, but I would say that the program will raise awareness. I… think their report fair – remember most people in the UK have no idea what goes on in connection with FGM.
Anti-FGM Activist: “There are other ways to raise awareness… This is a form of child abuse, do you advocate sky news filming other forms of child abuse, just so we’re all clear on what goes on? I completely and utterly disagree that this was necessary to raise awareness. I work with Hibo and have seen first hand how she educates people who had no idea about fgm. No more girls lives need to be ruined!”
Me: Sky will reach many people – it would take many Hibos working for many years to reach as many people. I agree that perhaps their title is misleading “Activists Edge Closer ….” and yet the video content is more about the poor girl. If you read their web page about the report, however, it is very positive about the fight for FGM legislation in the Puntland region, and not sensationalist …
Anti-FGM Activist: “Funnily enough I understand how mass media works… but thank you for taking the time to explain it to me. But instead if patronising me, why don’t you answer my question, would you advocate the filming of other acts of violence/abuse, just as long it was presented as part of a campaign to end that particular form of violence/ abuse?”
Me: Should we stop reporting wars and not show the devastation and suffering? Is not Hibo Wardere
‘s book a form of sensationalism – I hope the profits are going to charity… the graphic used to illustrate the front of Hibo Wardere
‘s book is in my view sensationalist – the very thing you are accusing Sky News
of. Hypocracy indeed.
