Congressional Law Fails to Reach Female Genital Mutilation

 

On November 20, 2018, the United States District Court in Michigan ruled that the federal law which criminalized Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) more than twenty years ago is “unconstitutional”, and cannot be used to prosecute the doctors and mothers of the very young girls who were brought to be genitally mutilated in Livonia, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. (See United States of America v. Jumana Nagarwala, et al, 2018 WL 6064968.)

There were eight defendants. A doctor in Michigan, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, herself a member of the Dawoodi Bohra sect of Indian Islam, was accused of mutilating the genitalia of nine girls from three states: Michigan, Illinois, and Minnesota. Another doctor, Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, is accused of having allowed Dr. Nagarwala to use his now-shuttered clinic in a Detroit suburb. Two other women, Farida Attar and Taheri Sharia, clinic employees, were also accused of having assisted Dr. Nagarwala. The mothers of the girls were also charged: Farida Atif, Fatima Dahodwala, Haseena Halfal, and Zainab Hariyanawala.

How to Rebalance US Global Security Cheaply and Easily

The reason the Soviets eventually signed the INF treaty in 1987 was because the US and NATO deployment of hundreds of Pershing and ground launched cruise missiles in Western Europe exemplified NATO solidarity and vitiated the coercive threat that the earlier Soviet SS-20 missile deployments had hoped to secure to prevent a NATO response to potential Soviet aggression.

Russia, evidently not restrained by the agreement, is already building missiles outside the INF treaty, according to an October 29, 2018 report from the Congressional Research Service. The bottom line is: If the Russians do not comply with the INF arms control treaty, there is no treaty to be saved.

Worse, as China was never a party to the INF treaty, it is deploying thousands of such INF range missiles in the Pacific, thereby putting the USA and its allies at a serious military disadvantage.

2018 Victories: America Withdraws the Disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal

2018 Victories: America Withdraws the Disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal

This is the latest installment in a year-end series looking back at some of the numerous victories by the ACLJ in 2018.

After years of tirelessly advocating for a withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Deal – a deal the ACLJ outlined from the start would be a disaster – we saw massive steps forward this year, including new sanctions on the state sponsor of terror.

In a major victory for America, President Trump, true to his word, has officially withdrawn the United States from what he accurately called the “defective at its core” Iran nuclear deal. Further, the President ordered that sanctions on Iran be re-imposed.

US lobbies Europe to back UN vote on condemning Hamas

 

Israeli ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon, pictured at a Security Council meeting on July 24, 2018, said US diplomats were in talks with their EU counterparts on a draft text.

The United States is leading a push at the United Nations to win crucial backing from European countries for a resolution condemning the Palestinian Hamas group, the Israeli ambassador said Tuesday.

The General Assembly is expected to vote Friday or possibly Monday on the proposed resolution condemning rocket firings into Israel and demanding that Hamas end the use of violence.

Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon told reporters that US diplomats were in talks with their EU counterparts on the draft text. European backing would significantly boost chances of approval by the 193-nation body.

“The US is negotiating the language with the EU,” Danon told a briefing. “For us it's very symbolic to have this resolution presented with the support of the EU.”
