Brandeis, Female Mutilation and the Falsehoods of a Faculty Petition

fgmLast Tuesday, on April 8, Brandeis University rescinded its invitation to human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali to receive an honorary degree from the institution. Brandeis caved in the face of intimidation from CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood front groups, as well as a student petition on and a faculty petition – the contents of which have now become known.

The faculty petition is a textbook case of leftist pathology and of how “progressives” demonize true heroic freedom fighters and push millions of victims of totalitarian regimes and ideologies into invisibility for the sake of their own egotistical and destructive agendas.

A case in point in this ugly leftist narrative is how the signatories of the Brandeis petition have succeeded in banning a woman from their university who is the victim of female genital mutilation (FGM), suffered under an Islamic knife because of Islamic doctrine. Ali represents millions of Muslim females — mutilated and mutilated-to-be. And yet the signatories of the petition are callously indifferent, because they have their progressive program to attend to and fulfill.

The Brandeis faculty petition, written on April 6 and addressed to President Lawrence, stresses “the horrible message” that inviting Ali to the university “sends to the Muslim and non-Muslim communities at Brandeis and beyond” because of Ali’s “virulently anti-Muslim public statements.” Aside from complaining about Ali’s truth-telling about Islam, the petition also issues a dire warning about the “unnecessary controversy” that the human rights activist’s presence would bring to the campus.

To be sure, who needs nightmarish scenarios like debate and intellectual diversity when the Marxist Left has already lovingly bestowed the peaceful Party Line?

The petition then references the major issues with which Ali is concerned: female genital mutilation, forced marriages, and honor killings. “These phenomena,” the petition flippantly notes, are not “exclusive to Islam.” This is a standard and perpetual tactic of obfuscation and equivocation employed by the Left whenever a monstrous evil is labelled in a totalitarian enemy. It serves as an excuse for inaction by presupposing that if a crime is committed by someone else, somewhere else, that it somehow justifies doing and saying nothing in the face of a crime being perpetrated on a mass scale right before our eyes – and one that we can do something about.

In other words, the sordid logic implies that if a sin or an injustice exist somewhere else on the planet, then one must never fight for — or defend the victims of — any one ideology or system (unless it is of the Western variety, of course).

Thus, if one dares to show concern for the millions of Muslim girls who are victims of female genital mutilation, the leftist will reflexively retort: “Muslims are not the only group that practice FGM.” But so what? The bottom line is that Muslims are the principal religious group that practices this sexual violence against women. And if a young girl is a victim of FGM, the chances are that she lives in a Muslim household and in a Muslim culture. And this barbarity is kept alive and legitimized by Islamic theology.

The faculty petition to President Lawrence also expresses a deep concern about the fact that Ali has suggested “that violence toward girls and women is particular to Islam or the Two-Thirds World.” This is intolerable (even though completely true) because, according to the petition, it obscures “such violence in our midst among non-Muslims, including on our own campus.”

This is another consistent tactic that the Left engages in to insert its falsehoods into dialogues about oppressed people under monstrous tyrannies. The plain fact staring everyone in the face is that while violence may exist among non-Muslims, their laws and institutions delegitimize and illegalize such conduct. For instance, if a non-Muslim anywhere in the United States, including on a university campus, engages in violence against a woman and the police are called, he will be charged. In Islam, violence against women is inspired and sanctioned by the institutions themselves, precisely because misogyny, including wife beating, is embedded in the Qur’an.

In other words, non-Muslims who are violent toward women operate despite and against the laws of their lands; Muslims, on the other hand, are violent toward women because of their laws, and that is why they are, in turn, protected by those laws.

Consequently, in terms of female genital mutilation, millions of Muslim girls are victims of this horrifying crime precisely because it is fundamentally Islamic and is integral to Islam’s misogynist structures.  It is rooted in Islamic texts such as Umdat al-Salik:

“Circumcision is obligatory (O: for both men and women. For men it consists of removing the prepuce from the penis, and for women, removing the prepuce (Ar. Bazr) of the clitoris.” Sacred Islamic Reliance: page 59, Umdat al-Salik  (“Reliance of the Traveler”), a manual of the Shafi’i school of Islamic jurisprudence, endorsed by Egypt’s very own Al-Azhar University of Cairo — the oldest and most prestigious university in the Islamic world.

This explains why one of Sunni Islam’s “Four Great Imams,” Ahmad ibn Hanbal, quotes Muhammed as saying: “Circumcision is a law for men and a preservation of honor for women?” It is no shock, therefore, that Sheikh Muhammad Sayyed Tantawi of Egypt’s Al-Azhar University has called circumcision “a laudable practice that did honor to women.”

As a result, in Muslim Egypt, like in Indonesia, the crime of FGM is perpetrated on a massive scale because of Islam. Even when the Egyptian government tried to ban FGM back in 1996, an Egyptian court overturned the ban in July 1997 because of the ferocious uprising it sparked among Islamic clerics, who fervently pointed to Islamic teachings to make sure this crime against women remained firmly in place.

The road to saving millions of Muslim girls from this vicious and barbaric Islamic crime is to do what Ayaan Hirsi Ali is bravely doing, and what the signatories of the Brandeis faculty petition are trying to stop her from doing: to isolate and pinpoint Islam as the main culprit in this context.

And so, this recent shameless story of the faculty petition at Brandeis causing the disinvitation of Hirsi Ali is yet another tragic reminder of Islamic cruelty to women and our own culture’s shameful surrender to it. The signatories of the Brandeis faculty petition conclude that they,

“cannot accept Ms. Hirsi Ali’s triumphalist narrative of western civilization, rooted in a core belief of the cultural backwardness of non-western peoples.”

In other words, multiculturalism must trump women’s rights. As I have documented in United in Hate: The Left’s Romance With Tyranny and Terror, the Left cannot reach its hand out in compassion and solidarity to the suffering people under Islam, or under any other tyranny, because doing so would be an admission of the evil of an adversary culture and ideology. Doing so would cast a spotlight on the superiority and goodness of Western civilization, and therefore serve as a reminder of the importance of protecting and saving it. For the Left, such a concept is nightmarish and anathema, because the entire purpose of the Left is to revile and destroy its own host society.

For progressives to admit the dark realities of Islamic jihad and Islamic gender apartheid is to jeopardize their entire cause, identities, social belongings, cultural and material rewards, and their narcissistic cravings for approval and admiration in their “progressive” milieus.

The suffering of millions of Muslim women, therefore, must be ignored. And Ayaan Hirsi Ali must be dehumanized and silenced.

This whole sad and tragic issue is ultimately reduced to one basic question that should be asked of all the signatories of the faculty petition to President Lawrence:

Theoretically, if you could take time back and save Ayaan Hirsi Ali from female genital mutilation, and in so doing, you would end up saving all the Muslim female victims of genital mutilation, would you do it? All you have to do is name Islam as the cause of this crime, concede that it is a violent religion, and admit that your own host society and civilization are superior.

The obvious answer we would get from the signatories to this question unveils the true nature of the leftist agenda; it exposes what the leftist narrative really is: a long frightening horror story of human blood sacrificed on the altar of utopian ideals.

        • Myrtle Linder

          This all has happened because GOD gave man a choice. Instead of making all of us puppets so that HE could control us, so that we could do no wrong against HIM, HE gave us a choice.

          HE created the entire universe in only six days, the last thing HE created man and gave him the privledge to take care of the world. I believe we did a fairly good job for many years, for the first 19 centuries.

          Then man became much wiser and began making all kinds of inventions. Along with all of these inventions came numerous evils. The old righteousness of HIS people was laughed at, poked fun at. This wicked attitudes grew as the inventions grew.

          It has com to the point that we do not, cannot imagine the next wicked body involved act, will be thought up by the wicked minds that Satan has bee able to control.

          JESUS must come soon before we destroy the world by having our bodies mutilated to try to make them better that how GOD made us, and the nuclear powers that are growing by leaps and bounds are nothing to laugh about.

          Matthew 24:22, 27
          22. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saves: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
          27. For as the lightning cometh out of the East and shineth even unto the West so shall also the coming of the SON OF MAN be.

  • Greg Hamilton

    Jamie, I think you are absolutely right when you say. “In other words, the sordid logic implies that if a sin or an injustice exist somewhere else on the planet, then one must never fight for — or defend the victims of — any one ideology or system (unless it is of the Western variety, of course).”

    This way of thinking is most likely rooted in the anti-discrimination policies of the last 60 years. Whilst this has been beneficial in many ways it has also given rise to the idea, especially among the hard Left, that any discrimination is wrong. Discrimination has two meanings: to separate out for unfair treatment or to make a distinction. This latter meaning is the basis of sound judgement. Thus, singling out Islam as the worst motivator of these horrific acts, however true, is simply viewed as discriminating against Islam and Muslims. It really is that woolly-minded.

    I’ve discussed this in more detail at my blog Malsi-Tung in a post called “Failure to Discriminate”

    Mark Steyn writes…

    … As for Brandeis president Frederick Lawrence and the others who took this decision, nobody’s asking them to be as brave as Ayaan Hirsi Ali. They will never know what it’s like to have their associates murdered and to be forced into living under armed guard. They will never have to “share the risk” that Ms Hirsi Ali faces every day of her life. All that was required of President Lawrence & Co was that they not be total craven, jelly-spined squishes who fold like a cheap Bedouin tent at the first hint of pressure.

    But Lawrence couldn’t even do that. Ayaan Hirsi Ali campaigns against female genital mutilation – that’s to say, the barbarous practice by which Muslim men deny women sexual pleasure by having their clitorises cut off. Lawrence and the other fellows who run Brandeis are in no danger of any equivalent procedure since it seems clear they’ve nothing down there to chop off anyway. The eunuchs of the American academy are the beneficiaries of western liberty, of the spirit of openness and inquiry that is the principal difference between us and the intellectually stagnant Muslim world. But they will not lift a finger to defend that tradition.

            Yeah, what’s the problem with the mutilation, eh? Could you – as an expert on this sophisticated life style – explain why muslim men would not rather show their stoic manhood by staring at their freshly cut off balls instead? Granted, this wouldn’t be too smart either, but – at least – they would show who has – or rather had – the balls.

    Excellent article Mr. Glazov. Islam is the only one of the so called generally accepted mainstream religions that sanctions the violence seen around the world. Every country where non Muslims and Muslims alike are being slaughtered are Muslim or have a large Muslim population. Muhammad himself created this violent doctrine during the Medina years. As far as low character goes, the Prophet of Islam doesn’t get any lower in character. He was a liar, murderer, rapist, brigand and pedophile. He broke treaties and ordered assassinations against those that insulted Allah or himself. It was he that set the standard for 1400 years of warfare and persecution of infidels, particularly the vilification of Jews and Christians. Yet he is the shining example of piety and a model to emulate for Muslims. A psychological profile of this guy would show he was delusional, and paranoid, a self aggrandizing, narcissistic pathological liar and sexual predator. The Koran is his get out of jail free card for all his deplorable behaviour and all Muslim actions for the future upon his passing in A.D. 632.

    @The facts

    I have no idea why the moderator erased your reply to mine (posted 3 hours ago), but here is my answer:

    I don’t know whether or not I presumed your islamophilia, but in demeaning and insulting Mrs. Hirsi Ali you have displayed the same disdain toward women which is one of islam’s salient traits. Unless it is the color of her skin that provoked your remark.

    Whether or not you like Brandeis University doesn’t change the fact that in this particular instance it has acted shamelessly. It doesn’t mean that Brandeis has not been a respectable institution in the past, or that it will not become respectable again in the future.

    No one, not Mr. Glazov, not Fox News, not the many protesters all over America who continue to voice their outrage (and apparently, the news has now crossed the Atlantic) – no one but Brandeis itself has been undermining its own foundations with this act of cowardice.

    • The Facts

      All of this being “demeaned and insulted” is professional, not personal spectacle. Brandeis doesn’t have to cleanse itself of any particular attaint. Ali is on record stating that the failure to give counter-jihadists a venue is what causes mass killings. Isn’t that quite alarmist? The next time there is a mass killing by a disgruntled anti-Islamist, are we to blame Brandeis for rescinding Ms. Ali’s honorary degree? This if Frontpage’s hand in terrorism: credentials extortion.

      • reader

        You keep referring to Ali’s implied and alleged condoning of Brevik, but you never provided any evidence of her doing so. I think it’s time for you to put up or shut up, trolly.

        • Atikva

          Don’t bother, Reader, these useful idiots can’t reason.

          Never mind that the latest writings from Mr. Brevik have revealed his leftist leanings, never mind what Mrs. Hirsi Ali said or didn’t say in this or that context… They are desperate to find among conservatives a counterpart to the thousands of islamists murderers – and naturally, they can’t. Mr. Brevik is the only one among mass murderers who is not a muslim, so they try to link him to each and everyone who is fighting the islamisation of America, that’s all.

These were your words: “Ali (not even the courtesy of Ms. or Mrs., and your continue in the post I am replying to now) was too poor of character to receive an honorary degree, and [that] it would shame the University”.

        You are grasping at straws as your arguments – or rather, the usual leftist politically-correct stanzas – misfire. As to the rest of your comment, it is too ridiculous to be discussed.

  • Hank Rearden

    Here is the problem. All those dead European white men? THEY WERE RIGHT. The Left cannot admit that so the faculty – THE FACULTY – at Brandeis must embrace cowardice and untruth.

    One cannot understand what the trustees of the university are doing. What now is the purpose of Brandeis? It doesn’t have one, except to provide comfortable, well-compensated employment to cretins. What is the value of a Brandeis degree, of a Brandeis education?

    Now we see how Germany descended into depravity. It was led there by its institutions.

    Like Brandeis.

  • Nonbeliever

    I have been a “bleeding heart liberal” my entire life. I am also a diehard secularist. I have detested the “right wing” in politics and religion. Never before have I been so thoroughly tossed into the conservative camp as when it comes to Islam. I am DISGUSTED and APPALLED at the evil these “leftards” are committing by defending the world’s most violent and misogynistic CULT.

    Shame on all of them – they are DERANGED. I know many ex-Muslims who DESPISE Islam, and they are completely horrified by the vile deeds of these leftists siding with the fanatics oppressing millions of humans – including and especially women.

    Here is one important article by an ex-Muslim who herself is horrified by this utterly evil alliance of Islamic fundamentalist fanatics and leftist psychopaths. Brandeis is obviously a SEWER of such evildoers:

    Siding with the Oppressor: The Pro-Islamist Left

    All of these disgusting tools should be ASHAMED of themselves. They are aiding in the abuse of a black woman and siding with those who abused her. How can they live with themselves? Boo hiss!! Drive them from the public forum, boycott their classes, expose them and all others who are enabling this horrible ideology to spread. They are indecent and immoral.

    Long live Ayaan Hirsi Ali! Down with Brandeis and its evildoers. From now on, let Brandeis be associated with infamy.

  • American1969

    Why couldn’t female members of Congress from both parties come together with the First Lady and even former First Ladies and feminists and publicly join together and denounce FGM and show their support for Ms.Hirsi Ali and other victims of that horrible procedure?
    Instead, the so-called “women’s movement” focuses on a made up “War On Women”, where they focus on taxpayer-funded abortions and taxpayer-funded birth control pills. Yet they remain silent on an issue like FGM or the way women are treated in Islamic cultures. That proves that their “fight for women’s rights” is bogus and they’re only interested in agendas.
    As for CAIR—–this is a group that has been indicted as co-conspirators in terrorism and support for terrorist groups. Any time anyone like Ms. Hirsi Ali speaks out about Islam and it’s bad treatment of women, they come out and squeal that it’s “Islamophobia”, and demand that everyone shut up.
    Brandies…..Wasn’t that founded as a Jewish university originally?

  • 2BlackCoffee71

    According to the quote above they are supposed to only cut the prepuce of the clitoris. But what actually happens is that in many of the societies that practice fgm they cut the entire organ. In some cases, such as some Somali clans, they go even further with FGM. This issue should be brought to the forefront and it is a travesty that Brandeis caved in to pressure and is not going to honor Ms Ali with an honorary degree. I have spoken against Islamophobia in other discussions and stand by that. At same time many parts of Islamic world need serious reform. We do not expect medicine to function at same levels as during Muhammad’s day. The imams, clerics, etc. of Islam need to, imo, re-interpret the Quran and Hadiths to reflect evolution of moral standards, which are, hopefully, not the same as in Muhammad’s time.

    I bet this university President applauded giving the Nobel Peace Prize to Barack Obama for doing nothing and would still applaud him now that Obama’s poor character, and judgment, is exposed.

    Of course CAIR’s and the Leftist campus mafia were responsible for Ali’s removal. What the group that invited her should have done, was to connect her to this campus’s International Women’s Day where they focus on abuse on women, and if Ali’s story is not the at the top of their list, then this would expose the group’s true agenda, which is standing up for American women and the Republican’s War on Women. Imagine if Republican’s demanded Mutilation of their daughters and one of those daughters stood up against it! She’d certainly be Obama’s Poster Child against it and the Cult would follow.

  • nopeacenow

    “Too poor of character” you have to be joking. Since when does standing up for women’s rights in Muslim countries indicate poor character? Where are those feminists on campus, the professors of women’s studies who should be standing shoulder to shoulder with Ayaan Hirsi Ali against the poor treatment of women in Muslim countries? Political correctness be damned. Ms. Ali has shown courage to speak out on the atrocities carried out in the name of Islam against women. President Lawrence has shown himself to be a coward.

  • Atikva
