    A few issues here The Quran authorises the mutilation of enemies (5:33) and Muhammad authorised the mutilation of people (camel thieves)
    Mutilation as capital punishment vs mutilation on the battlefield. Different things. Moreover Muhammad was scolded by Allah for being excessive in the case of the camel thieves.

    So it is ok to steal from non-Muslims during war (that's where "war booty" comes from) but it is forbidden to take it from Muhammad. Convenient!
    The war booty is for the state.

    Yet when Muhammad was asked about the problem of killing women and children during night raids on the pagans, he permitted it saying "they are from them".
    Source? Context?

    Apart from the mad old woman of the Banu Qurayza that Muhammad had executed.
    Which one?

    Apart from when Muhammad burned the date palms of the Banu Nadir as psychological warfare.
    Again, source?

    WHATS THE COMMON THING? Maybe it is because they are not committed, religious people.

    With FGM, it is in the public discourse in Saudi Arabia, so then how would it be unIslamic?
    Exactly; if they were religious they wouldn't be doing all those things.

    Who said Saudi Arabia is a model for an Islamic State?

    Again, show me some scriptural justifications for those issues.

    Why would these sects consider it "obligatory". Also, Saudi arabia is very close, so is Iran.

    So then why do they believe that if it isn't anything to do with islam? Surely they must ground their belief in the theology and/or history surrounding Islam.

    Is that something you disagree with personally or is it anti-West? I recall people chopping bits of their children being quite prevalent in USA.

    It's allowed in the West. Wasn't that your main contention with this practise?

    it's not harmful, get over it.

    It is, it literally damages the nerve sensitivity in the area.

    It is allowed in the west because we have freedom, it isn't obligatory.

    I personally disagree. In response to your other post saying that it is not dangerous, unlike male circumcision (which can be performed in adulthood to avoid infections in people who are prone), a woman's vulva can regulate itself quite well and chopping bits off invariably males things worse.

    It is usually performed by substandard doctors. Often without anaesthetic. It leads to a HUGE increase in infections and also makes the mother MUCH more likely to die during childbirth.

    Although I disagree with male circumcision I do understand that it usually has little to no effect on the quality of life of the victim. FGM is another kettle of fish entirely. It IS abuse.

    The men’s motives are still unknown.

    How about a sweepstake on the motive?

    If that were the case, it'd be banned here but it isn't so

    Same applies for male circumcision.

    We're talking about hood reduction, not cutting the clitoris

    It's actual type 1, without the removal of the clitoris, that's allowed in Islam.
