Shame on those Germans who would ban circumcision. Shame on those Germans who do not care enough to rise up in anger against the pseudo-scientific bigots who falsely claim to be interested in the sensitivities of children. Praise for those Germans who do stand against the bigotry of their countrymen.

Let other countries with cleaner hands take the lead in conducting real scientific research and in seeking to protect the rights of children and animals. The dirty hands and filthy past of Germany forever disqualifies that country from leading the effort to ban Jewish rituals. For shame!

  1. It is not right and unfair to call it antisemitic if we discuss rights of childrens that should be eternally harmed without their consent! Maybe the child would call you abusive if they could.

  2. Norm Grey says:

    Isabella and all like-minded protectors of the young. Simply stated, G-d COMMANDS Jews to ritually circumcise normal, healthy boys (not girls, as they do in more unenlightened societies) ON THE EIGHTH DAY…or as soon after the child is deemed healthy by ritually and medically trained professionals.
    If you don't believe in G-d, I can understand your belief that adults must "protect" helpless babies. But please rest assured, we who do believe in G-d KNOW that He KNOWS what He's doing.

  3. There is a fundamental right for children to safety and freedom from bodily harm. Michael Wolffsohn, a german historian with jewish background is not of the same opinion as you are. As the german newspaper "Die Welt" has reported the circumcision is the symbol for an original human sacrifice. As a Christian I have – of course – read the stories of Abraham and his son. (Beside that – jews and muslims are not clear about which son should have been sacrificed). This point of view of circumcision as a "pars-pro-toto" for human sacrifice was really new to me.
    And what we all should respect is that children rights of their owns and are no more longer the proberty of their parents. The change through circumcision cannot be altered later and this without the consent of the person involved.

Re-posted with permission from The Gatestone Institute How many times have you heard on television or read in the media that the Gaza Strip is “the most densely populated area in the world”? Repeating this statement, however, does not make it true. There are dense parts of Gaza, especially Gaza City, Beit Hanoun and Khan […]

Qatar’s wealth and Turkey’s size should not preclude us from telling it as it is: Qatar and Turkey are among the worst villains in the Gaza tragedy.

Many American experts—diplomatic, nuclear, political, economic—believe that even the risks to the United States exceed the benefits.

The immediate choice for the world today is not between diplomacy and preventive war. We have a third option: to maintain or even increase the sanctions.
