Virginia Imam Promotes Female Genital Mutilation [VIDEO]

If progressive leftist Democrat “feminist” groups are looking for a place to protest against real discrimination against women, this would be an excellent place to start.

As you can see in the video below, provided by MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute), a watchdog group that monitors Islamist rhetoric, Muslim Imam Shaker Elsayed of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia, is seen promoting the horrific and brutal act of female genital mutilation, even though it is illegal in the United States.

Dar al-Hijrah was the mosque where top Al-Qaeda leader Anwar Al-Awlaki served as an Imam, including on 9/11.

Imam Elsayed said that performing female genital mutilation on “young girls” is the “honorable” thing to do because it keeps them from being what he calls “hypersexually active,” and that a “Muslim gynecologist can tell you if you need to or not.”

“[Circumcision is] a sunna for the boys, and the honorable thing to do – if needed – for the girls. This is something that a Muslim gynecologist can tell you if you need to or not. The Prophet… There used to be a lady who used to do this for women, or, I mean, young girls. She is expected to cut only the tip of the sexual sensitive part in the girl so that she is not hypersexually active. This is the purpose.”

According to MEMRI, the Imam made the comments during a sermon last month in Fairfax County, Virginia.
