Special unit to monitor and delete extremist posts from Facebook The US-based technology company has also hired a special unit to monitor and delete racist posts on its German platform. The initiative is supported by the German Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection, the London-based Institute for Strategic Dialogue, the Amadeu Antonio Foundation, one of Germany’s foremost, independent NGOs, and the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence.
reports the mission statement for the page is to “clear misconceptions of the[ Islamic practice of female circumcision and counter misinformation against it.”
Part of that agenda is, of course, an effort to replace the term “female genital mutilation” with “female circumcision.”
Also unsurprisingly, the page’s offerings are served up with a side order of anti-Semitic paranoia. For example, one post spotlighted by Foreign Desk News is titled “Female Circumcision – The Hidden Truth: How Misogynists and Feminists are feeding upon each other to denigrate an Islamic practice that brings untold benefits to women.”
The author claims that these health benefits have been “overlooked to conform to Islamophobic sentiments expressed by a largely Jewish controlled media,” which is naturally far less critical of male circumcision because “male circumcision is a Jewish practice and female circumcision is not.”
There are even infographics touting both the alleged health benefits and religious justification for FGM, which the page assures women is part of their duty to both Allah and their husbands:

Sad but the people that surport FGM are insecure people who need to feel important and a "real"man. A woman who has suffered FGM is seen as safe as the man does not have to worry about" keeping her happy" but can" just ram it in". BTW FMG can not be compaired to male circumcision, if you wish to compair FGM to the male then the nearest you can get is cutting there balls off. Still we can only live in hope that in there culture MBCO (male ball cutting off) will become the norm
