But At Least They Weren't Waterboarded!

Another pair of honour killings, this time in Texas. Robert Spencer makes the obvious point about the left's silence in all this, but for a true idea of just how far down the rabbit hole we've gone, consider this report from the Daily Mail:
It is known by a variety of names, the most common of which are female genital mutilation (FGM), female circumcision, or simply "cutting" - a word which somehow conveys the raw pain its prepubescent victims suffer...

By conservative estimates, 66,000 women and girls living in Britain have been mutilated. This figure, accepted by the Metropolitan Police, came in a report by a volunteer organisation funded by the Department of Health and carried out with academics from the London School of Tropical Hygiene and the City University.
Draw your own conclusions from the fact this is appearing in the evilest paper evah!, rather than, say, the screamingly right on Guardian. Say what you like about the right, but when we get accused of discriminating against women, the charge usually boils down to something like calling vacuous Blair Babes 'vacuous Blair Babes'. Actual mutilation, not so much.

A vote of thanks too for the race hustlers, ever ready to talk about the soul-chilling horrors of life in racist Britain, but silent in the face of real atrocities. Again.

Oops, no: silence would be an improvement. They're actively hindering attempts to suppress this savagery:
Usually [police] visits are well-received, but we found that at least one London council declined to publish material highlighting the suffering and danger the practice causes - for fear of offending ethnic African residents.
Yep, even when the topic is torture and mutilation, the cards win out.
