I noticed a quote in today's paper by Sahah al-Saqari who is the first woman to run for the chairmanship of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party.. In an interview with AP, she said "that Shariah laws are the top parameter. She argued that she can't call for a law banning female genital circumcision or limiting the marriage age for girls to prevent child marriage."

I Googled Sharia laws to see if they mentioned female circumcision and I didn't see it. Here's the wiki link

The head of the Egyptian Center for Women's Rights, Nehad Abou-Qomsan, said that al-Saqari's candidacy was I'm paraphrasing here window dressing. She said "they are still using women as decor".

Liberals of the United States, especially all women should read how this religion treats females.
