    The militant group Islamic State (Isis) has ordered all girls and women in and around Iraq's northern city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation, the United Nations says.
    The "fatwa" issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect 4 million women and girls, the UN resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq, Jacqueline Badcock, told reporters in Geneva by videolink from Irbil.
    "This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed," she said.
    "This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists," she added.
    No one was immediately available for comment from Isis, which has led an offensive through northern and western Iraq.

    Look, this is terrible, absoloutley, but you should not be surprised by what ISIS are prepared to do.


    Al qaeda and the Taliban have distanced themselves from ISIS, that says a lot. ISIS are essentially the nazis of their day, they aren't just fighting for territory like Palestine/Israel, they aren't about revenge for western interferance in what ever country like Al qaeda/Taliban. They literally just want to convert the every nation on earth to an extremist Islamic state.

    It's pretty ****ing dumb because we're in 2014 not the 13th century, you can't just do a Genhis Khan and take over the world 1 village at a time. Interested to know how they plan to conquer and assume power in nations like the UK, US and China. Terrorist attacks and guerilla warfare with AK-47s is one thing, overthrowing a wester super power is just fantasy.


    (I don't know every last thing about ISIS or their ideologies, this global dominaition crap is just what I've picked up from seeral videos, news articles and TV reports including a tape by a British born ISIS member stating that it's not just the east they want and eventually they will bring Islam and ISIS to Britain and the rest of the world in due time)

    It's true though. Where does it say in the qur'an/hadith/wherever that females should be mutilated? Go learn about islam before you comment about it.

    The muslims condemn isis

    The Iraqi government is strikingly incompetent. I don't know whose worse - the coalition provisional authority or the Iraqi government that coalition provisional authority put to power.

    True, but even in non-Muslim countries, Muslims usually make up the majority of victims, proportionally.
    Also bear in mind that Islam is the only major religion where recognised authority supports it.
    In Indonesia, about 80% of girls are cut. FGM was unknown in Indonesia before the arrival of Islam. Clearly a religious practice.
