Indonesian Government’s Backward Step on Female Genital Mutilation

by Irfan Al-Alawi – September 26, 2011

Female Genital Mutilation or Cutting (FGM/C) is increasing in Indonesia, with the issuance in June 2011 of official guidelines from the Ministry of Health for its infliction – even though the Indonesian authorities banned the practice in 2006.

Indonesian media report that the new government regulations on FGM call for “scraping the skin” but not “cutting” the clitoris of Muslim girls. While the Jakarta government had forbidden FGM altogether because it “could potentially harm women’s health” and was “useless,” a lack of state oversight allows its prevalence and increase, especially on the island of Java.

Female Genital Mutilation “An Obligation” According to Iraqi Muslim Cleric

by Irfan Al-Alawi – August 18, 2011

Logo Hudson New York

In June, the parliament of Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) adopted a ban on domestic violence, including female genital mutilation (FGM), a “procedure” that is widespread among Iraqi Kurds. The law will come into effect once it is signed by KRG president Mesud Barzani, who represents the Kurdistan Democratic Party.

But a local cleric, Ismail Sussai, in the major Iraqi Kurdish city of Arbil, has delivered a televised sermon in which he described FGM as “obligatory,” called on fathers to kill themselves, on pain of losing their “honor,” if they are legally prevented from abusing their daughters for using mobile phones; and he defended the beating of wives and children.

Iraqi Kurdistan Passes Law Against FGM

by Irfan Al-Alawi – June 27, 2011

Logo Hudson New York

The parliament of Iraqi Kurdistan registered an important victory against Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) on Wednesday, June 22, when it passed, by a large majority, legislation banning the practice. The brutal and un-Islamic custom of FGM has now been criminalized in the Iraqi Kurdish region, even as Western European countries have vacillated on its prohibition.

The success of Iraqi Kurdistan’s anti-FGM law has been partly credited to sustained investigative and lobbying work by a German/Iraqi non-governmental organization, WADI. The group has conducted surveys, beginning in 2007, revealing the wide incidence of infliction of FGM among Iraqi Kurds. WADI has disclosed that more than 60 percent of women and girls in Iraqi Kurdistan have been subjected to genital mutilation.

Hudson New York om Egypten

Hudson New York følger situationen i Egypten meget tæt. Artiklerne nedenfor er skrevet før Mubarak gik af, men det er de nu ikke blevet mindre aktuelle af. Her er dagens produktion:

The Reality of the Muslim Brotherhood

by Tarek Heggy – February 11, 2011

The Muslim Brotherhood was launched in 1928 to restore a caliphate, a global religious government aimed at fighting the “non-believers” (specifically, Christians, Hindus, and Jews) and at spreading Islam. The group opposed the existence of any secular states in all Muslim societies throughout the Middle East.

The Brotherhood killed Egypt’s Prime Minister Mahmud Fahmi Nuqrashi in 1948 and plotted to kill President Gamal Abdel Nasser in the early 1950s. An offshoot group, Islamic Jihad, led by Ayman al-Zawahiri, later Osama bin Laden’s number-two man, assassinated Egyptian President Anwar Al-Sadat in 1981 and tried to kill President Hosni Mubarak in 1995.

The Danger of the Muslim Brotherhood

by Irfan Al-Alawi – February 11, 2011

Hosni Mubarak has come to a wretched pass, and it is impossible not to sympathise with crowds of ordinary people demanding democratic change. But Westerners are being led by their ignorance and good-hearted idealism to believe in a “reasonable” transformation of the Muslim Brotherhood [MB] and, as a consequence, the alleged standing of the MB as an appropriate participant in the democratisation of the Islamic lands. The MB has always believed that the West could be swindled into assisting the rise of the Brotherhood to power, and the recent effort to convince America and Western Europe that the MB represents a “tame” form of radical ideology has gone on for several years. Moderate Muslims are not fooled, and Westerners should not let themselves be gulled into promoting an outcome in Egypt that would open the way to a Muslim Brotherhood state there.

Western media coverage and political commentary on the Egyptian events frequently leaves Muslim moderates dismayed. It is shocking to observe the wide success of the MB’s campaign to present itself as an acceptable option for the government of Egypt.

Arab Dictators and Radical Islam

by Khaled Abu Toameh – February 11, 2011

For decades, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and other Arab dictators used to tell Americans and Europeans that if they did not support them, the result would be Muslim extremists coming to power.

This is why these dictators never took drastic measures against Islamic fundamentalist groups in their countries. Even though Egypt and some Arab countries occasionally cracked down on these groups, they always made sure that the Islamists would stay around.

Egypt and The Obama Administration

by Herbert I. London – February 11, 2011

A million people are standing in Tahrir Square in Cairo protesting the government and arguing that Hosni Mubarak must go. The military, representing the most stabilizing influence in Egypt, has immersed itself in the protest, at least to some degree. The nation’s most notorious prisons have been emptied of criminals, and Islamic extremists and roving bands have destroyed art treasures and looted private property.

While words of freedom and liberty are in the air, there is the distinct danger that these protests could result in less freedom for Egyptians than what they have known, especially if those who harbor Islamist goals (read: the Muslim Brotherhood) gain a foothold in government.

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
