Duchess Kate Had a Boy, Call the Mohel

Share Button

Duchess Kate Middleton gave birth to a baby boy on Monday. The baby weighed in at 8 lb. 6oz.

No word yet if the local Rabbi will be called in to perform a circumcision.

It’s been the tradition of the British Royal Family for the past 150 years to circumcise their boys, though rumor has it that Princess Diana broke that tradition with William and Harry.

  1. The Bible, Genesis 48:19-20
    And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great(UK): but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations(USA). And he blessed them that day, saying, In you shall Israel bless, saying, God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh.

    Isaiah 9:21
    Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah(Jesus). For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

    Isaiah 10:1-15, 24-25
    Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed; To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless! And what will you do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will you flee for help? and where will you leave your glory? Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. Ho Assyrian, the rod of my anger, and the staff in their hand is my indignation! I will send him against an hypocritical nation(Israel), and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. However, he(Abdullah II ibn Al-Hussein, Jordan) means not so, neither does his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few. For he said, Are not my princes altogether kings? Is not Calno as Carchemish? is not Hamath as Arpad? is not Samaria as Damascus? As my hand has found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria; Shall I not, as I have done to Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols? Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when God has performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria(Jordan), and the glory of his high looks. For he said, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man: And my hand has found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathers eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped. Shall the axe boast itself against him that hews therewith? or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shakes it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood.

    Therefore thus said The GOD of hosts, “My people that dwell in Zion(Jesus), be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall strike you with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against you(WW3, great tribulation 42 months), after the manner of Egypt. For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and my anger in their destruction.”

    Isaiah 17:1-3
    The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid. The fortress(military stronghold) also shall cease from Ephraim(USA), and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, said The God of hosts.

  2. It doesn’t get more goy than this family!

  3. Anthony Kent says:

    William apparently had one when he was older as Diana was not a fan of Brit Milah. Charles was snipped. All British kings are traditionally circumcised – pure class.

  4. Hugh Intactive says:

    Um, he's the future head of the Church of England. Which tends to suggest that he's not Jewish….

  5. Cyneva Dalton-Vazquez says:

    What's the matter with you cut-happy people? Leave baby genitals alone.

  6. Absolutely disgusting title. I'm certain they have enough sense to not hack an important part of their son's genitals off. Diana was brave enough to stand up for the rights of her sons, and I'm sure Kate and William will too.

  7. Daryl Christensen says:

    The headline is a new low for human rights

  8. Frank Mullen says:

    You're disgusting

  9. Keary Walker-Hall says:

    Stop pushing genital mutilation! Gross!

  10. Charlie Weder says:

    Shameful. A couple has a healthy baby, and the first thing you think of is to convince them to force cutting on it. Even though they don't even follow your religion to begin with.

  11. Rebecca Fine says:

    Nothing wrong with the headline – it's the same thing that millions of people are wondering. There have been several pieces in the British press about it. It's been well-documented that Charles and his brothers were circumcised by a mohel.

  12. I'd rather call the police on those who insist on mutilating the genitals of children. Absolutely shameful.

  13. We would rather see the mohel staying away!

  14. Melissa Tamminen says:

    William and Harry are intact, I doubt he will be circumcised. Men in England are largely intact, unless they are in fact Jewish or Muslim.

  15. Or maybe they'll respect their son and leave his penis alone.

  16. In the interest of the child it is better that he stays far away with his knife.

  17. Jason Fairfield says:

    Well, the next time the JCRC and its ilk protest about being left alone to do their thing, it's worth trotting out this omnisemitic, tasteless call by the JP. They don't want to be left alone; they want to impose. What kind of outrage would there have been if a Christian newspaper headline said, "Quick, baptize him!" to the Israeli head of state's family on the occasion of a new son? And that doesn't even involve blood and disfiguring amputation.

  18. Dave Lee says:

    …. odd how muslims do the 'snip' too….;<?

  19. James Clarke says:

    There's everything wrong with it. Mutilating someone's genitals is a barbaric, primitive practice regardless of their gender.

  20. Hugh Intactive says:

    If that is true, it is because the Royal Family is always behind the times. Victoria is said to have had her sons circumcised because she thought she was descended from David (a British Israelite), but more likely because it was then being promoted to prevent masturbation. The fad took on among the British upper classes, but only to a limited extent, and faded away again with National Health and the loss of the profit motive. The rest of the British Empire took it up too, even more enthusiatically, and has given it up too – with no ill-effects.

  21. Shai Basu says:

    Sick!

    If Diana broke the tradition then I hope Kate does too!

  22. Asa Rubin says:

    That's not a rumor, she did break the tradition. She refused to have any body parts cut off WIlliam and Harry. What kind of crappy journalism is this? There's a picture of Prince William's willy freely available online, and he has a natural penis.

    Men who are intact almost never circumcise their sons since they know how good their penis feels, but more and more men who have been circumcised are leaving their sons as G-d made them: perfect.

  23. Nat Jones says:

    They know better. They're not going to let someone mutilate their child's genitals.

  24. James Loewen says:

    What kind of sick minds use the opportunity of a child's birth to promote genital mutilation?

    Much respect for Jews who are rethinking this barbarity and welcoming their male children without violating, cutting and harming them!

  25. James Loewen says:

    What kind of sick minds use the opportunity of a child's birth to promote genital mutilation?

    Much respect for Jews who are rethinking this barbarity and welcoming their male children without violating, cutting and harming them!

  26. Jeremy Gie Kung says:

    WTF, William is Intact like a majority of young men in the UK. He can thank Princess Di for breaking with Queen Victoria's blood sacrifice tradition.

  27. Shondolyn Gibson says:

    I hope they don't. Let them choose when they are grown men.

  28. Laura Ivansons says:

    Actually the babies father is INTACT AND WHOLE. Daina did not allow her sons, William and Harry, to be altered with circumcision!

    Considering William has had an intact penis all these years and it hasn't fallen off and it still works well…it did make an HEIR TO THE BRITISH MONARCHY! I doubt they will cut their son!

  29. Lani M Dingman Siciliano says:

    Except that Charles's sons were not circumcised.

  30. Sadie Acosta says:

    Diana was a very smart women I hope William will keep his babies intact as god intended!
