Brit Milah on the Chopping Block in Germany

Normally I hate the Germans, but you have to give them credit on this one! Let their banning of brit milah be a reminding to our beloved Jewish brothers and sisters in Diaspora that we don’t belong in foreign lands. Unfortunately, I doubt whether the new law will shake up the Jews of Germany in any meaningful manner. After all, if the slaughter of 6 million didn’t make them think twice about continuing to live in that polluted, blood-stained gentile land, this new measure isn’t liable to wake them up either.

In contrast to the reform congregations of Germany, I think it would be a blessing in disguise if the New York Supreme Court passed a similar law banning brit milah. Maybe it would alert the holy Jews of Brooklyn that they don’t belong in a gentile Christian country. True, they could move to New Jersey or South Florida in order to safeguard their religious freedom and continue to enter their newborn sons into the brit of Avraham Avinu, so I guess it would take a new nationwide anti-brit law from the Supreme Court of America to really wake them up and move them to come home to Israel. To be sure, there are those lovers of galut who would reason, “It’s not the end of the world – the Jews didn’t circumcise their children in the wilderness of Sinai either – we too can pass up on the mitzvah until Moshiach comes and takes us to Israel.” But for most normal thinking people, a United States Supreme Court law banning brit milah might be the very thing to save us from everlasting exile in heathen lands.

Now I know what you are thinking – “It could never happen in a democracy like America!” Sure, sure, sure, sure. That’s just what the Jews of enlightened and democratic Germany said before Hitler came to power. And don’t forget that a few decades ago, Russia was the Torah center of the Jewish world, until the Russians closed down the synagogues and burned all the books.

No, no, not in America!” you still insist.

Oh, my dear holy brothers in sisters – God forbid that there should be a world oil crisis during a freezing Brooklyn December, and then see how long it takes for the lovers of Xmas to turn savagely against the Jews, who, of course, will be to blame.

But it needn’t come to that extreme. There is already a devastating abolishing of brit milah in America. Though the Jews of America prefer to ignore it, thinking that a few more Birthright trips will make the problem go away, more than half of the Jews of America have already abolished brit milah by marrying out of the faith. It’s not only an end of brit milah – it is total Jewish castration. This silent Holocaust is already taking place. And it is increasing every year. The longer the Jews stay in America, the less real Jews there will be. Any high school math student can figure out the curve. In just another generation, the only conclaves of circumcision remaining will be in Brooklyn, Lakewood, and Monsey, until that oil shortage strikes occurs, and then who will protect them from the clubs and rifles of the lovers of democracy and Santa Claus?

Let it be said loud and clear from the pages of The Jewish Press – Jews do not belong in foreign, gentile lands, existing on the goodwill and courts of the goyim! There is no more reason to linger in exile. Hashem has given us our own Jewish State. Yes, there are many confused champions of democracy and liberalism here in Israel capable of passing anti-Jewish laws, but with the mass aliyah of America’s religious Jews, we will have the numbers to transform Israel into the true Torah Nation we all long to see. The very factor preventing this is the lack of aliyah.

So if brit milah truly means something to you – then open your eyes and see the writing on the wall. This time, once again, it’s in German. But it’s already happening in America too. The castration of our People is already taking place. Remember what God said to Avraham at the Covenant of the Brit Milah, “And I will give to thee and to thy seed after thee, the Land in which thou dost sojourn, all the Land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.”

Here in Israel – not in Berlin or Brooklyn. Living in the Land of Israel, my friends, is what the Brit is all about.

  1. Ha Shem has various ways of bringing us home to Israel… I take comfort in that…

  2. Eleonora Elbaz says:

    Israel is a Zionist Nation not the desert version for penguins who actually prefer to hide behind the books rather than fighting for themselves… this article is one of the worst I ever read, just shows me that this author would like to see our beloved nation find itself under parasites attack…God Forbid.

  3. Gould isnt about geography jts a state of
    Torah and mitzvos

  4. I have a German music teacher and I'm a chasid and I think you are a stuck up racist zionist and think you are the messiah and write very poorly

  5. Liad Bar-el says:

    Rav Darsy (sp) may he rest in peace and be of blessed memory, once said at the Kotel, “we are all soldiers”. A soldier is not only one who only carries a gun but one who carries (does) the word of HaShem. A sage in ancient times greeted the soldiers who were returning from battle with the words of “you all are returning from the battle victoriously but now you have a stronger enemy and harder battle to fight…the yatzher harah.” Nora, this battle is not won with guns and bullets. Israel does not exist only by using guns and bullets even as much as we are forced by our enemies to use them to protect ourselves and our families.
    Nora, as you hold your beautiful child in your arms, who is so dependent on you for his needs, think of one of the greatest Zionists of all time, King David who’s faith in HaShem was so strong that he said: “I swear that I stilled and silenced my soul, like a suckling child at his mother’s side, like the suckling child is my soul. Let Israel hope to HaShem from this time and forever.” (Ps 131:2,3) Without Hashem, King David would not have been successful. Without HaShem your child and no one else will be successful.
    Tell me, who is more important, the soldier on the battle field or the one praying for him? “And it came to pass when Moses raised his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when … down the hands of Moses could not….” (Ex 17:11) Don’t forget, many wars were won without firing an arrow/bullet. IMO, we in Israel need everyone…the person fighting his yatzher harah and praying for the person to succeed in shooting at evil people. History has shown, however, that prayers in truth win more battles than do battles without prayer.
    Nora, the “desert … penguin…this author would like to see our beloved nation find itself under parasites attack” as you put it, which Tzvi Fishman, has all of his children who are of age serving in the IDF. What an honor to you, your family and to all the nation of Israel is your child grew up to be like him. (HaShem Ieshmor)

    Tzvi invites many birth right people for Shabbat dinner. As I understand it, they sit next to him for he sets a big bouquet of flowers in front of his beautiful wife and surrounds her with IDF soldiers (her children).:-)

  7. Mistake using term racist zionist Because Zionism is about human rights but please to say all goyim are bad it's not true and silly

  8. Brit Mila is a important mitzwa. When you not understand the bible, read "The Kussari (Chasari9" by Jehuda Halevi.
