Add this to yesterday’s story about Spain going Muslim and you’ll begin to see a picture unfolding. A commenter to the post, Danko, had this to say:
NOTE: There’s no doubt that the number of Muslims being butchered like this in Spain, and elsewhere in Europe, are in the majority. That said, the practice however has to be stopped, no matter where they hail from and what group is responsible.
Up to 10,000 African girls in Spain ‘risk genital mutilation’
THOUSANDS of young girls in Spain could be at risk of undergoing female circumcision without an anaesthetic when they reach puberty, disturbing figures show. Around five million girls worldwide, aged between toddlerhood and around 18 years old suffer this potentially deadly mutilation every year.
But around 10,000 in Spain are also at risk, having been born into families from one of the 27 countries around the globe – most of which are in sub-Saharan Africa and particularly include Sénégal, Mali and Nigeria – where this barbaric practice is not against the law.
It consists of removing all outer parts of the girl’s genitals and stitching them up, and is rarely carried out using any form of sedation. Often, it takes place in the desert with sharp instruments such as a broken shard of glass or a stone. Since age commands respect in many African countries, parents often find themselves overriden by grandparents or elderly women inn their villages if they try to refuse to put their daughters through the process.
