US Congresswoman shows Muslim colours

Ilhan Omar is the newly-elected U.S. representative from Minnesota’s 5th congressional district, and a member of the left-wing “Justice Democrats”.  She is one of two Muslim women newly elected to Congress.

Omar argued against a bill making it a felony for American parents to subject their daughters to female genital mutilation (FGM). Quote.

[The bill] “calls for loss of custody and prison terms from five to 20 years, depending on the extent of the injuries,” as well as “increas[ing] penalties for those who perform the procedure,” the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported. End of quote.

Omar’s rationale was that FMG should not be singled out by a single new law because parents could be charged under existing laws.  She said, Quote.

“I don’t want us to create laws because we want to get into the media and because we want a flashy headline.” She also reportedly opposed removing victims from their parents’ custodyaccording to Alpha News. End of quote.

Omar is typical of Muslims living in the west, particularly women, who keep their heads down, ask to be left alone and want to be treated the same as everyone else, but this argument does not stack up, because no other culture practices FGM.  No other culture has the same bias and practices that Islam does. Quote.

The bill later failed in the Republican-controlled Minnesota State Senate.

The issue came to the fore Tuesday after a federal judge in Michigan tossed out federal criminal charges against a group of Muslim defendants who had carried out FGM on young girls, ruling the federal ban unconstitutional. The state laws against the practice are valid, but the federal law overstepped constitutional boundaries, the judge ruled.End of quote.

We can expect to see more clashes of culture from these liberal Democrat Muslim women who are obliged to follow their religious beliefs before their adopted country’s laws.
