Religious freedom

It should be people's own choice.

I find the comments interesting because it shows no one actually read about the ruling! The ruling had NOTHING to do with Judaism. It was about a MUSLIM circumcision of a 4 year old that went bad. The ER doctor notified the authorities when treating the boy for bleeding. The fact the the MD called the police to report a bad circumcision is suspect enough for me. But ut was probably origininally an anti-muslim thing.

At the moment it is only valid in the city of Cologne, but many fear, it will be taken as an example for future rulings, too. Some hospitals have already decided to suspend surgeries until the matter is clearer. All are waiting for the German parliament and the federal court to overturn the ruling. It truly sounds unbelievable!

The Germans should WANT Bris Mila!

I am surprised at the court ruling. Of course, the Germans, like the Arabs, look for any opportunity to afflict the Jews -- but here, the Germans are working against their own best interest. By forbidding Bris Mila, how are they going to recognize Jews who are trying to hide during their next holocaust?

It is getting troublesom

I think they're trying to make the Muslims assmulate more and easier. The Jews being affected is just a happy by product for the Europeans.

NOT Mutilation

This is just sad. I believe the German courts are saying circumcison is the same as genital mutilation. This is not so. Hopefully this ruling will be reversed. I would also like to say being blonde does not mean you are not Jewish. I am blonde naturally, have green eyes, am tall for a girl, and speak German. None of that takes away from me being a Jew. I hate the idea that all Jews are short with dark hair and dark eyes- or in general you have to look a certain way to be a Jew. THAT needs to end.
