Ilhan Omar: Muslim religion questions a “waste of our time”


Controversial U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (R) recently took offense to a question about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) posed to her during a town hall discussion.

The practice of FGM is widespread throughout the Middle East and Africa, but is not solely a practice within the Muslim religion, but within Christianity as well.

The issue is more cultural than religious, but because radical Islamist groups, who promote Sharia law, and are proponents of the barbaric practice, the Muslim religion is the scape goat.
