New reports: FGM rampant across UK

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

An article from Bristol 24/7 caught my eye today. The headline is “More than 500 Victims of FGM Identified in Bristol in Last Year Alone”. The story describes how health bosses across Bristol have vowed to end FGM – yeah, right – as hundreds of new cases have been reported.

NHS Digital has found 535 victims of FGM in Bristol, which means 535 young women have had their genitals cut and mutilated for no medical purposes. This procedure is not performed legally in this country, and therefore must have been performed in underground ‘surgeries’, where people share a similar cultural/religious background get together to mutilate children.

This is a serious problem. It’s a dreadful crime with tens of thousands of victims, if not more, who have received no justice. And while it’s terrible to think this crime is happening on such a huge scale in Bristol, it’s not an isolated case. New data has shown the crime happening all over the UK. NHS Digital says that medical staff in England have seen around 6,400 women and girls suffering from FGM injuries between April 2017 and March 2018.

Bear in mind, by the way, that many cases still aren’t being recorded. Bristol 24/7 reported that 200 of the 535 instances recorded by the NHS were having their injuries recorded for the first time. There are still many too afraid to seek help for their injuries.

The same NHS Digital report has said that Slough has seen a total of 55 FGM victims seeking support from the doctors. At least one new victim in Somerset has been identified. At least two new victims have been identified in Poole and Dorset county areas. At least three new victims of FGM have been identified in Plymouth. And further victims have been identified in Kent.

This is all over the country, and it’s happening in almost every town and city. And now, England’s first ever walk-in clinic for people suffering from female genital mutilation has just opened in – you guessed it – Tower Hamlets. Surgeries have also opened in Waltham Forest and Redbridge. This follows on from the opening of the FGM clinic in Cardiff, and I remember when this first happened. There was much fanfare, as if we’re meant to be pleased these clinics are open.

I’m happy people are receiving support, but we should be deeply troubled that these things need to have opened in the first place. Every year we hear about more cases, and every year it becomes more evident that we lack the political will to solve it.

Well, I say "we," I mean "they." The politicians lack the political will to solve it, because they know solving it means admitting the problem exists. And admitting the problem exists means admitting there is a source of the problem.

And admitting the source of the problem is a hate crime.

Tsk! Tsk! How soon they forget Trudeau has already taken his stand. Already forgotten that his first move was to trash the planned hotline for girls in distress while simultaneously supporting the niqab. Could it be clearer?

Obviously out of control in politically correct UK these days, but it is a valid question of how much of this is happening RIGHT HERE IN CANADA!… And I suspect that the chances of any Canadian media tackling this issue in the coming days is somewhere right up with me winning the lottery…

Islam itself is a hate crime. It hates everything except itself.

there are probably more than 5k victims here, sure there are some halal shops here doing great business doing a bit of on the side cutting in the back room.

Well, why should we worry and complain – if we do the police will simply jail us on charges of islamo-blah-blah.

The police, the courts, the lawyers and the politicians all bow to islam.

If you did not vote for your present pro islamic government – your friends and family did……………

Always remember that islam is evil and always remember this – because it is as true today as it was the day it was written – and if you look the examples are literally everywhere………………………..

Below two percent Muslims are well-behaved citizens and cause little apparent trouble for the host society.

At two percent and three percent Muslims begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.

From five percent on Muslims exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They push for the introduction of halal (“clean” by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves—along with threats for failure to comply (United States, Switzerland, Sweden). At this point, Muslims work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, or Islamic law. (England, Netherlands, Philippines).

When Muslims reach 10 percent of the population, they increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris—car burning). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam, Denmark—Mohammed cartoons, murder of Theo van Gogh).

After reaching 20 percent of a population expect hair-trigger rioting, Jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning (Indonesia, Ethiopia).

After 40 percent you find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare (Bosnia, Chad).

From 60 percent you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and jizya, the tax placed on [conquered] infidels (Sudan, Albania).

After 80 percent, expect to find state-run ethnic cleansing and genocide (Syria, Egypt, UAE).

So, these young girls who have undergone illegal FGM and then see a doctor at a walk-in clinic for help. These doctors need to tell the police who has had FGM and the parents should face punishment.
But then this is the new Britain where only Sharia law is followed. And Muslims pretty much ‘get away with murder’, rape, bombings, acid attacks, etc. Cause we know the police are too busy busting truth tellers, aka hate speech.

The lement of Islamic women. I cant get no…Satisfaction.

Ron Joseph , I am already painfully aware of Trudeau’s past deflections on the subject of FGM.I commented at the time that his comments were closer to condoning the practice rather than expressing revulsion and rejection of the practice.
I believe Trudeau is so into Islam that he would defend it on the basis of a protected religious right.We just need him to say it publicly.

MUTA WEEN….Trudeau has already PUBLICLY dismissed FGM as Female Circumcision . He is great at sticking up for his Muslim partners.

What I find fascinating about FGM is it’s mostly men that report on it, not feminists or even normal women.
Brainless women will try and change the world over a kid drowning in the Mediterranean, in the middle of a war, even though 60,000 kids have already died in the war; however they are quiet over something as inhumane and important to females as FGM.
Women will also march and protest for days if they construe that a man is making a nickel an hour more than them, even though the man takes half the time off as they do.
Women must get their priorities right.

We would have to be naive to think this isn’t happening in Trudeau’s New Canada. And you can bet he will have all sorts of dithering excuses for not doing anything about it.

When has there been a prosecution for this crime?!!!
