Plato, FGM and why

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: To Mansoor: On the edge men have over women in Islam

As usual, I continue to be impressed with your wisdom and knowledge. Today, I would like to add to your excellent article. And it's all about, "Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)".

FGM is often justified by a controversial saying attributed to the Prophet Mohammed that favors circumcision involving minor cutting of the clitoris. Naturally, circumcision to a woman, will prevent her from enjoying sexual pleasures with her husband. Thanks to Muhammed's wisdom, sexual pleasure is intended for men only, and definitely not women.

FGM has been performed for at least 1,400 years, which is rather interesting, as Muhammad began reciting the Qur'an, 1400 years ago. And the Sunnah (the words and actions of the Prophet Mohammed) contains a reference to female circumcision.

Mansewer states, "that it is bad luck for Muslims that they slowly left the commandments which were when followed, proved to be the excuses of Islamic supremacy". Since Islamic commandments include:
1. Profession of faith
2. Five prayers per day
3. Zakat, welfare tax (does Zakat mean welfare tax for the cat?)
4. Fasting during Ramadan
5. Pilgrimage to Mecca, Hajj:
it's rather perplexing, that Mansor should state that, Muslims left the commandments. There is of course no evidence that "Muslims left the "Glorious" commandments. Mansoor further states that, "Allah has given edge to Men over Women just to ensure the smooth running of social system", and breach of this system has resulted the abundance of whores, prostitutes, playgirls".
Perhaps, Mansoor can explain why many Muslims travel to Thailand, marry 13 to 16 year old girls and spend 2 weeks with them, then divorce them and return home.

Once again, Mansoor comes up with more lame excuses as to why there are whores, prostitutes, and playgirls. Whores, prostitutes and playgirls are involved in the sex trade to make money and support themselves, and most assuredly, not to enjoy sex. Having sex 5 to 10 times a day, does not bring any pleasure to any woman.

Mansoor's articles place him third to the most intelligent, all knowing and powerful men who ever lived, and they are; (1) Muhammed, (2) Hitler, (3) Mansoor. May Allah be pleased with "Mansoor" and let him and Islam rule the world, that is, only the Muslim world and not the entire world. I'm sure that Muslims love "Mansoor", and would rejoice in having "HIM" rule their world.
