I could see how you'd see my points as straw man arguments. Doesn't make it true. Keep trying. My point about the Muslim ability to end this practice (or substantially reduce it) is valid and true. It is the muslim culture that keeps this practice active and even recommended.
No mention of female circumcision is to be found in the Qur'an either directly or indirectly. There is no known Hadeeth which requires female circumcision.
He instructed the woman by saying: "Cut off only the foreskin
So here we have the prophet of Islam describing how to do this practice.
Moreover, here's a quote from the link above which shows that Islam is propagating this practice
Originally posted by NygdanHe is saying that its permissible to remove the flap of skin, not tissue, not an organ, that covers the clitoris, which is derived from the same primordial tissue as the foreskin of the penis and the removal of which is no different from removing the foreskin of the penis. It is utterly different from female genital mutliation, its like comparing male foreskin circumcision to sub-incision of the penis.
Islam isn't propagating anything. They don't do female genital mutilation amoung persians or arfghans or anywhere else within the 'islamic world'. Its only happening in and around the horn of africa. Muslims are doing it, and christians are doing it.
