The Obama administrations anti-Semitism monitor has added an issue to his offices portfolio: defending circumcision in Europe.
Circumcision has become a top focus for Ira Forman, the State Departments special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism. He has been using the pulpit his office provides to warn European governments that moves to ban ritual circumcision could lead to the demise of their countries Jewish communities.
Because circumcision is essentially universal among Jews, this can shut down a community, especially a small vulnerable community, Forman said.
No European country has outright banned the practice, but there is increasing pressure to do so, and some countries have imposed restrictions such as requiring medical supervision.

When you see news like this you know we are paying way to much in taxes. Anyone working on crap like this to influence other countries deserves to be laid off and their program cut from the budget. How’s that for a circumcision?
Don’t muzzy men circumcise too? If that is the case you know the regime will back it.
I’m surprised that islamoeurope is trying to ban it.
Yes, Muslims also circumcise, albeit with no fixed age.
I swear, I read “Ira Foreskin”.
Just a trim. Little off the tip.....
The problem with the government getting involved in circumcision is that when it comes to the government...it’s never, ever just the tip.
For a couple of decades, there are some leftist queer Nazi trolls pushing on all of the political discussion boards to ban circumcision in the U.S.
And most of ‘em were on the left coast or the northeastern states.
Moslims circumcise. This is a Euro Moslim issue. Jews are peripheral.
