Two exceptional posts at Gates of Vienna

Jamaat ul-Fuqra in Georgia - From the Air
and
The Feminislamists: Women of Woe. Don't miss SC&A's comment,
I think the 'acceptance' of FGM (and thus the culture that allows for FGM), comes about as a response to 'white man's guilt over colonialism.

If we accept and endorse FGM, well, maybe that might mitigate some of the colonialist 'guilt' over colonialism.

This is the convoluted (and erroneous) logic that is behind so much of European anti semitism. If the Europeans can paint Israel as racist and evil, well, maybe the Holocaust wasn't perpetrated against innocents, but rather 'maybe they had it coming'- and thus, European ambivalence and acquiescence to the Holocaust might be mitigated.

To consider FGM as an 'acceptable cultural alternative' is to accept radical hatreds and bigotry as 'acceptable alternatives' and to assign them equal status to the values of free and civilized cultures.

What's next- the celebration of cannibalism, bestiality and pedophilia?
and Dymphna's reply.

This Georgia compound just scares the be-hoo-ey out of me. In fact, it's just a few dozen miles from the small airport where Mohammad Atta did his training runs. Once the spring arrives and the trees leaf out, the place will be almost invisible. And possibly very lethal.
