Those “moderate” Islamists running Egypt

Like Freedom and Justice Party MP Azza al-Garf, who publicly supports FGM.

Egypt’s New Women Foundation said they are suing Islamist Parliament member Azza al-Garf over her pro-female genital mutilation (FGM) statements. The women’s rights foundation sent a letter to the speaker of parliament Saad al-Katatny, informing him of legally going after Garf and asking for his permission to be allowed to take the MP to court.

Garf was reported saying that FGM is an Islamic practice and that the anti-FGM laws should be amended. Garf is a Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) member, the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

“We are on our way to sue Garf to preserve our rights and the gains of Egyptian women,” said the open letter to the speaker.

“We are suing her for going against Egyptian laws that criminalize sexual harassment and FGM, practices that goes against women rights and human rights.

“We completely refuse Garf’s statements and announce that she does not represent us.”

But Garf thinks Allah wants little girls’ genitalia chopped off. Garf worships an evil shit.

    Unfortunately after the Mubarak dictatorship crushed all the moderate opposition, all that was left was the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood.

    Remember this arse

    http://www.change.org/petitions/revoke-the-certifications-of-hatem-elhagaly

    He has been sacked, had an email from change.org

    You have received the following message about “Revoke the Certifications of Hatem Elhagaly” on Change.org

    “WE DID IT! – Elhagaly fired! – Now let’s get his certifications revoked!
    I have an update from the Mayo Clinic, and Elhagaly no longer works there. I want to thank each and every one of you for making this change possible

    I plan to continue the petition so that the Boards that support Elhagaly will continue to receive our message. I’m going to alter the petition sufficiently to exclude the Mayo since they’ve taken care of the situation on their end.

    For those of you who’d like to see, this is the communication from the Mayo:

    Dr. Elhagaly is no longer employed or caring for patients at Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea. We are working with his patients to transition their care to another physician. Because this is a personnel issue, we cannot comment further on Dr. Elhagaly’s employment status.

    Female circumcision in children, referred to as female genital mutilation in U.S. legal statutes, is a felony-level child abuse crime. Mayo Clinic strongly opposes the procedure and it has never been performed at any Mayo Clinic facility.”
