It is refreshing to see this prosecuted, rather than being pandered to by bemused multiculturalists.
“Parents convicted of genital mutilation,” from Swissinfo, June 26 (thanks to Writer Mom):
Two Somali-born parents who had their daughter circumcised in Zurich in 1996 have been handed suspended prison sentences of two years.
The sentences to the parents of the girl, now aged 14, were read out in a Zurich court on Thursday. The judge’s ruling was in line with what prosecutors had requested and was the first time anyone has been convicted for carrying out genital mutilation in Switzerland.
The parents had claimed they were unaware that female genital mutilation — sometimes referred to as female circumcision — was illegal in Switzerland.
They had been charged with grievous bodily harm, a crime punishable by up to ten years in prison.
The court heard that imprisoning the parents would have broken up the family, which the parents say is now better integrated.
The family’s two younger daughters have not been subjected to the practice, something the parents say was part of their Muslim religion….
Uh oh. Better notify the OIC, Ibrahim Hooper, and the whole posse of Islamic apologists in the West: these people think that genital mutilation has something to do with Islam. Everyone knows that only Islamophobes think that. So now we have the specter of…Muslim Islamophobes.
