You are right and as a matter of fact you will not find neither the male variety of the female variety of genital mutilation mentioned in the Qur'an and its origin in Islam is from the layer that is hated by Muslims and is called al-isra'ileeyat or those traditions that belong to the Jews! And even some Muslims as in the case of the Libyan judge who wrote a book about 20 years ago and told Muslims that genital mutilation is not islamic and it is part of al-isra'ileeyat and the poor guy ended by getting a fatwa of takfir against him from no other than the mufti of Saudi Arabia! Again it does not take much to see Muslims issuing fatwas and going on deadly riots
