Similar activism exists also in Israel.
THAT UGLY BUSINESS CALLED "MEDICAL SCIENCE"
Many claim that circumcision is a healthy practice. In fact, all research proving that seems to be partial, politically, and financially motivated.
More complete studies prove that tampering with male genitalia causes trauma, impaired sexual function and carries well-documented risks. The mutilation is carried out mostly by physicians -- or "mohalim" in the case of Jews -- that financially benefit from the act; their testimony on the "benefits" is thus worthless and must be seen as an unethical attempt to attract potential clients.
The main problem is that when performed on babies, circumcision is a non-consensual mutilation. As the Court of Cologne, I have no problem with grown up Jews and Muslims showing their faith by mutilating their bodies; however, violating and mutilating their babies is not an acceptable option.
Let the babies grow up and decide by themselves how to show their faith.
Abraham wasn't a baby when he was circumcised; neither should we.
Circumcision is closely related to experiments on humans and eugenic programs; the latter are attempts to get rid of the "unfit." Two countries are notorious on this ignoble field: Nazi Germany and Israel.
Until 1947, there was no code of conduct governing the ethical aspects of human research, though Germany and Russia had national policies on the issue. What we call now "Western Democracies" didn't care about the issue and in fact were great supporters of eugenic science.
In that year, the Nuremberg Code defined ten points regarding the ethic principles for human experimentation. This was a direct result of the Nuremberg Trials that followed the Second World War.
The Nuremberg Code defined the person's consent to be part of an experiment as "absolutely essential," while the Declaration of Geneva issued the following year relaxed the condition to "if at all possible."
Defining the regulation of medical research, the Declaration of Helsinki was adopted in June 1964 by the World Medical Association; since then it has undergone various revisions, the last one in October 2008.
Though not legally binding, it has been codified in the local legislation of many countries, including Israel. In such countries, a body usually known as a "Helsinki Committee" regulates research on humans. Israel has such a committee in every hospital.
Since circumcision has not been proven to be beneficial, or even safe, the brutal procedure must be considered as experimental and be subjected to the rules governing experiments on humans.
The Declaration of Helsinki states that "The subjects must be volunteers and informed participants in the research project" (Article B11). A 8-day old boy cannot be seen as a consenting subject, thus the "doctors" involved in this are nothing but criminals.
THAT UGLY BUSINESS CALLED "JUDAISM"
The formal position of Judaism on this issue is determined by the Talmud, a Pharisaic interpretation of the Pentateuch, the Bible's first five books.
The Talmud is brutal in its interpretations. It defines non-Jews as non-humans; it sanctifies the raping of children. Under these circumstances it is difficult to expect a proper behavior by the State of Israel, which has defined itself as "Jewish."
Many times in this website I have commented on the striking similarities between Israel and the Nazi regime. This is true to the extent that Israel looks like the legal successor of the latter.
Dr. Josef Mengele was a German SS officer and a physician in the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, where he supervised the selection of arriving prisoners. He continued his research on heredity in that camp, especially in the field of identical twins. Less prominent in Israeli textbooks is the fact that he recruited a Czech named Berthold Epstein, a Jewish pediatrician to help him.
In the book "The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide" by Dr Robert Jay Lifton, it is claimed that Dr Epstein "was indignant that Mengele 'wanted to rob him of his soul'" (page 296).
Yet, despite this and that he "had extravagant notions of honor," (same page) he fully cooperated in non-consensual experiments on humans carried out in the camp.
"Cooperated" is not the best word to define his despicable actions. He proactively "proposed research on the treatment of noma" (same page) and led non-consensual research on humans. He couldn't claim being a victim any more than Judas Iscariot.
Yet, according to history books, he "had extravagant notions of honor." Yes, of course he had. Not surprisingly, Jewish doctors who survived WWII joined the Israeli medical system and eventually were an important part of it for years.
Ever since, there is a long history of illegitimate experiments on humans conducted by Israel (again, see Israel's Eugenics Program: Dr. Mengele Blues).
Moreover, Israel openly conducts a eugenic program. Dor Yeshorim (roughly "Straightening the Generation" in Hebrew) is the name of a state-program which seeks to reduce the incidence of Tay-Sachs disease, cystic fibrosis, Canavan disease, Fanconi anemia, familial dysautonomia, glycogen storage disease, Bloom's Syndrome, Gaucher disease, Niemann-Pick disease, and mucolipidosis IV among certain Jewish communities.
The Israeli public must carry out genetic tests to diagnose these diseases early in the pregnancy. If a fetus is diagnosed with one of these diseases the pregnancy may be terminated, subject to consent.
What's the State of Israel's opinion on deaf people? Should they be allowed to be born?
Should Beethoven have been forcibly aborted?
What about Muslims and Christians?
What about people with eyes too close to each other, or with small smiles?
Should they live?
Finally, what about Jews? And, while dealing with this, who can decide on this? Can a doctor unable to differentiate between good and evil destroy someone else's life on account of his or her genes?
These are not coincidences, but the inevitable results of a monstrous moral system.
Two days before Angela Merkel made her abovementioned statement, Levy Izhak Rosenbaum -- an Israeli living in the USA -- pleaded guilty at federal court in Trenton, NJ, to illegally brokering kidney transplants for profit in the United States. He charged between $120,000 and $150,000 to help three New Jersey residents find kidneys for transplant between 2006 and 2009. He found donors in Israel through newspaper advertisements. Then he helped arrange the necessary blood tests to ensure a match, and for the donors� travel to the United States. He also helped donors and recipients invent a cover story to trick hospital staff into thinking the donation was altruistic, and thus legal, rather than an illegal business deal.
As the picture shows, he is a Haredi Jew, claiming to be fearful of God, while in fact pursuing financial profits made out of others' desperation. "A black market where the moneyed sick can buy replacement parts from the less fortunate is not only grim, it apportions lifesaving treatments unfairly, insults donor dignity, and violates the law," Prosecutor Paul J. Fishman, the New Jersey U.S. Attorney, said in a statement following the sentencing by Judge Anne E. Thompson.
Moreover, it is difficult to consider consensual an organ donation by someone otherwise facing hunger. One of the donors, who cooperated with the government in exchange for immunity from prosecution, described to the court that he felt exploited by Rosenbaum. Talmudic Judaism is wrong from a to z, from alpha to omega, from aleph to tav.
FROZEN JEWISH HEARTS
In the last year the complex relations between Germany and Israel have experienced several dramatic events (see Germany Creates New Nuclear Front in the Middle East for a summary) to the extent that a quiet war seems to be going on between these two countries.
By its recent court ruling, Germany has shown to have kicked out its Nazi past.
No more eugenics, no more violations of people; meanwhile Jewish organizations are raising hell.
The Conference of European Rabbis and the Central Council of Jews in Germany have condemned the court decision, saying it won't be obeyed. "I don't think that seventy years after the Holocaust a German court would put a parent or a mohel in jail for performing a Jewish religious commandment," said Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, president of the Conference of European Rabbis and Chief Rabbi of Moscow, told JTA.
In his frozen heart, he failed to see his defenseless victim's pain.
