Why female genital mutilation cases continue to rise in the UK

Rebel Staff

Last week the UK saw its first ever conviction for FGM (female genital mutilation), despite it being outlawed decades ago.

According to City University, around 137,000 women in the UK have had FGM, with another 144,000 at risk.

Despite mandatory reporting by health and social care professionals and teachers, and despite a fivefold increase over three years, there have been just 36 referrals from the CPS.

The NHS cited 5,391 new cases of FGM in 2016-27.

Female genital mutilation is mainly practised in Africa by 29 countries, including Kenya, Somalia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Mali, Guinea and Sudan, as well as Indonesia, and girls whose families come to the UK from those countries are most at risk.

And the practice is rife in European countries too, as I'll tell you while reporting from the European Parliament.

Maybe under a new government in Canada, we can have someone like Janice Atkinson invited to speak to our Parliament. In Trudeau’s government, the only invited speakers about Islam are fundamentalist Muslims begging for protection from phantom aggression in the most open and welcoming multicultural population in the world, crying for more Sharia law and accommodation. An example of such a speaker was in 2017, A Muslim woman, Srosh Hassana, taking part in the Daughters of the Vote event on Parliament Hill, addressing islamophobia and xenophobia in an an emotional statement in the House of Commons on International Women’s Day. It can be found on youtube. I am just asking for some balance so that some of ugly truths about the culture can be exposed, and kept out of our country. Not to mention some push back against this victim role Muslims are wont to play here.

We are being told we have ‘systemic racism’, which is an absurd accusation. We are being over run with rabid, radical multiculturalism and expected to accept, carte blanche, all the incompatible cultural practices that Islam brings with it.

M 103 is a law designed to keep us from questioning Islam, as well as a vehicle to fund Islamic associations, at home and abroad, with tax payer money, some of which are linked to violent acts and terrorism.

If we manage a new PM here, I will be suggesting such an invitation.
In our Senate committee meetings, the speakers who get invited, including moderate Muslims warning of radical Islam, are ignored if invited at all.

I would like to see Janice Atkinson addressing both sides of the isle and the Canadian people in the House of Commons, where it can’t be ignored. Of course that will never happen under a Trudeau government.

Good question David Ball. If she just got her razor confiscated and maybe a fine, it will never stop.

Ahmed Hussen our immigration minister in Canada, a Muslim Somalian refugee himself, doesn’t want to talk about FGM. He doesn’t want Canadians to know about it and he doesn’t want to offend Muslim migrants who consider it an important part of the Sharia law.

He doesn’t want to dissuade Muslims from any of their practices which we considered unacceptable here in our western country, and are even against our laws. He wanted the warning that FGM was not allowed in Canada, stricken from the new immigrants guide book. He had to be bullied to keep it in.

What are the numbers in Canada? How many little girls who were brought here, or were born here, and are being raised in a radical Islamic culture have to suffer this butchery, under our watch?

Don’t ever stop Janice Atkinson. I thank you for all you do. Your courage helps others speak out.

Janice, What was the sentencing arising from this?

Anyone who does not condemn this should have it done to them.

I don’t know how any sane person could mutilate an animal, much less little girls. I almost passed out viewing this video. Anyone committing fgm should be locked up now!

Bruce Atchison said, “should be jailed for decades and made to do hard labour.”
Bruce agreed, except 400 of 530 Parliamentarians would have to go to jail in the UK.

FGM is the most reprehensible and barbaric form of child abuse. People involved in this, including those politically-correct cowards, should be jailed for decades and made to do hard labour.

What about the 72 virgins these heathens are supposed to get their hands on when they go to where ever they go to if they die in battle. Have they all been doctored also? It’s all very strange to me and their minds must be clittered up also.

I can see the radical feminists all of whom are Democrats looking the other way and saying nothing about the grotesque acts that they know are happening in States like Minnesota.
You invite or allow these people to establish their own customs under the umbrella protections of multiculturalism, what do you expect will happen.

Janice, I like your straight talk! Tell it like it is and don’t mince the words.

Treat it the same as an act of terrorism, life or 25
