'Circumcision ban will end Jewish communities in Europe'
Arutz Sheva ^ | 1/12/19 | Yoni Kempinski

Posted on 12/01/2019 9:13:25 AM PST by Eleutheria5

Arutz Sheva spoke with Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, President of the Conference of European Rabbis (CER), at a gathering of its Standing Committee in Geneva, Switzerland.

How more challenging and scary has being a Jew in Europe become?

"It's very challenging, as an individual and as a community."

You're referring to fears of anti-Semitism?

"Yes. We witnessed an attack on Yom Kippur in eastern Germany, not ISIS - Neo-Nazis. In the last years, no Jews were killed by neo-Nazis in Europe. It's a whole new phenomenon."

"We have problems today from the left and the right and the center. This is beside the attacks on religious freedom, against shechita (ritual slaughter) and bris milah (circumcision)."

And is there anything that could be done? It seems like it's a phenomenon for generations of course.

"We're there and we're fighting. We're fighting but sometimes it's not an easy fight. The main thing is to get support from our communities and from our allies."

Do you think that some countries will really legislate against shechita and bris milah? Or is it just declarations?

"No. It's a real problem. If we don't do anything, it's possible that in many countries in Europe, bris milah will be forbidden and then that's the end of an organized Jewish community in those cities and countries.

"We're seeing that the Muslim world is also opposing this legislation. Maybe you can say that the Jews and Muslims are on the same side on this point.

"We may be collateral damage. We Jews lived in Europe for over a thousand years and no one said a word about bris milah. It is only because of the immigration of millions and millions of people from the Middle East that we have problems today. We are the collateral damage."

Post-Alexandrine Greeks tried to ban it, so did the Romans, the Communists, the Nazis. It's just one more reason to leave. Some fine allies you'll have. Muslims will riot and attack Jews along with everyone else. Once they get riled, they just go nuts. Jews should leave. The Eurocrats and the Muslims deserve each other.

Trying to make up for a lack of testes with the addition of foreskin is not going to Make Europe Great.

A bit confusing, because Muslims circumcise as well.

There is. Same way we ended the communities of Hiroshima, and Nagasaki.

Europeans tend to be hygienically challenged in the first place. The Mohammedan invasion hasn’t helped on that score. More uncircumcised males with their smegma secretions will make it even worse.

“A bit confusing, because Muslims circumcise as well.”

Look for the Muslims to insist that FMG is part/and/parcel of their faith.

While against the ban for males, I sure as poop am against FMG.

It’s not because I’m a female, either.

Any medical act that would cause the male to experience what the females experience and have to live with would have me out there in the streets.

And to think there are cowards who frame their love/approval of FMG in our government and in the Medical fields.

“We’re seeing that the Muslim world is also opposing this legislation. Maybe you can say that the Jews and Muslims are on the same side on this point...

The person speaking also felt the need to STRESS that one attack was NOT by muslims but neo-nazis.

Sounds like a Jewish liberal apologist who won’t confront the BIGGEST problem in Europe and thus will accomplish nothing.

But keep buttering up to muslims like a bitch and that will make them stop killing Jews /s

Don't you worry. The Eurotoadies will make an exception for Muslims.

The Hebrew word the Lord spoke to Abraham, “Convenant” is “bris”. That word means circumcision. There cannot be a Jew without a bris.

Agreed. Puritans fled as well. You either have freedom of religion or you don’t.

Less Jews more Muslims. That’s what the Europeans want.

It’s a ban against other people deciding to mutilate a boy’s genitals.

This rabbi needs to be more specific. I don’t think that this kind of article is helpful—too vague. This issue needs to be broken down country by country. It also needs to describe which european countries generally practice circumcision of male infants for medical reasons, as is done in the US, and which not.

Muslims will just ignore the ban.

The ban is targeted at Moslems. Also this is really in Germany only, not “Europe” wide

The legislation against circumcision is primarily germany and denmark.

other places that want to ban circumcision are
Australia, Iceland, UK etc.

no European country has banned it for religious purposes. IF they do, it will be due to Muslims, not Jews

It’s difficult. Moslems want freedom to do what they like as well
