Nr. 96: Circumcision!

Nr. 96

Circumcision - Brit Mila!

Brit Mila is the Jewish word for circumcision. According to the law of Judaism, all boys are circumcised eight days after they are born. This law is not not for girls.
Brit Mila According to Judaism as a sign of a covenant which was determined between God and Abraham, this covenant was subsequently renewed between God and the Jewish population.

It is very, very rare that I get scared, but I was now that I have been following the developments taking place here in our beloved Norway to the circumcision of male children. This is from the NTB news:
Both the Medical Association, Nurses, Ombudsman, Humanist Association Resource women and the Medical Faculty at the University of Oslo wants an end to the practice, writes Times.
Each year approximately 2,000 newborn boys circumcised in Norway. Health and Care Services sent at the end of April, a proposal for a regulation of the ritual circumcision of male children out for consultation. In the consultation paper it is proposed that the procedure must be performed by physicians or other experts, and that it should be free. The purpose is to prevent complications and to prevent pain and trauma.
- This is an abuse of the child, says Lars Gule, who is former chairman of the Humanist Association has sent a private submission.
- It limits the child's ability to take a more free-choice beliefs in mature age. The child will be scarred for life with a sense of belonging to a particular belief, he says the Times.
- Children must be allowed to choose their religious identity. Circumcision is an irreversible procedure that makes the child for life. You never get the foreskin back, says vice chairman of the Humanist Association, Tom Hedalen.
Rights of the Child
The Ombudsman has also gone out to consultation proposal.
- I think the discussion should be about this at all to take place, says ombudsman Reidar Hjermann.
He proposes that there be an age limit for circumcision.
Under Norwegian law, a 15-year-old self the right to decide on religious matters, while 16 years, the health authority legal age.
Hjermann also refers to the Convention.
- Article 12 reviews children's rights to participation and influence over their own lives. There is no opportunity to consent when one is born. There is no human right to cut the foreskin of another human being.
Doctors wary
Medical Association points out that the procedure is unnecessary.
- The best thing would be if this was illegal. Unnecessary intervention in healthy people is far beyond the health care system will operate, says Hege Gjessing, president of the Norwegian Medical Association.
Health and Care Services envisions two alternatives to the regulation of the procedure. In one model would allow persons other than physicians should be allowed to perform surgery on certain conditions. In the second model envisages that only doctors can perform the procedure.
State Board of Health believes that ritual circumcision of boys should not be regulated and do not want to supervise the ritual circumcisers who are not doctors, if such is allowed to perform surgery (end of quote).

Is this the end for the Jews in Norway and then also on real democracy? Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said after the 22 July atrocities should be more democracy and more transparency, this is the exact opposite.

Where are the Christians and the Muslims of?

It is silenced and the bad that this is really important to write and illustrate is now completely left to the Jews in Norway that is not even 2000, to fight for this.

Circumcision is common throughout the rest of the world and has been going on for at least 4,000 years ago Abraham was told from God. It stems from circumcision and it will pass away forever as a covenant sign between God and Israel, which many have adopted, especially Muslims. 1 / 3 of the boys in the world are circumcised.

1. Genesis 17 17 Then Abraham threw himself on the ground and laughed. He said to himself: "Can a man who is a hundred years, have children, and Sarah with their ninety years of birth?" 18 And Abraham said to God: "May you let Ishmael might live before thee!" 19 said God: "Yes, but you will get a son by Sarah, your wife, and you shall call his name Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant for his descendants after him. 20 As for Ishmael, I have heard. I will bless him and make him fertile and give him a very numerous family. Twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation. 21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear next year at this time. "22 When God had finished speaking with Abraham, he went up from him.
23 And Abraham took his son Ishmael and all the men in his household, both those born in the house and those bought with money, and cut off the foreskin of them, as God had told him. 24 Abraham was 99 when he was circumcised. 25 And Ishmael his son was 13 years old when he was circumcised. 26 The same day they were circumcised, both Abraham and his son Ishmael. 27 And all the men in his house, those born in the house and those bought from foreigners, were circumcised with him.

When God gave Abraham the promise of Isaac, he did this. And Isaac was unlike any other circumcised on the 8th day something happens to every Jewish boy since Isaac, this is in conjunction with keeping the Sabbath a covenant sign between Israel and God, that God Himself has ordained. Therefore to deny the Jews to do this procedure is to go against God himself.

1. Genesis 21 The Lord took care of Sarah as he had said and did to her as he had promised. 2 Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the time God had told him. 3 Abraham gave his son that he had with Sarah, named Isaac. 4 And he circumcised Isaac when he was eight days, as God had commanded him. 5 Abraham was a hundred years old when he begat Isaac.
6 Sarah said, "God has made it so I have to laugh. And everyone who hears will laugh with me. "7 And she continued:" Who would have said to Abraham: Sara to give babies breast! And I have borne him a son in his old age. "

This happened to Isaac, it is something that one would do with all the boy babies, but God has never ordained it for baby girls, just boys.

Male circumcision
What: A medical procedure that involves removing the foreskin of the penis. Treatment can be performed by medical or religious / cultural reasons.
Ancient custom: An image showing the circumcision of adult men are scheduled for 2350 - 2000 BC. Circumcision was common in several places in ancient times, especially in Egypt. In the Bible we are told that circumcision of male children was practiced by the Israelites. It is said that God commanded Abraham and his family and servants to circumcise himself, and that the injunction was continued in the Moses. Within Christianity considers the most requirement of circumcision for abolished along with other provisions of the law of Moses. Circumcision is practiced still within Judaism. The custom is practiced also within Islam, with the aborigines in Australia and in many African societies. Often as an initiation ritual.

When: Jews circumcise their male children on the eighth day after birth. Muslims circumcise usually boys, either in infancy or later. Some Muslims allow boys circumcised at the beginning of puberty. If a grown man who is not circumcised converts to Judaism or Islam, he lets himself usually circumcised.

Medical reason: Some are circumcised because of tight foreskin (that you can not pull back the foreskin). The procedure is usually done under local anesthesia.

"Approved" practice: In contrast to the circumcision of girls / women, the circumcision of boys / men widely seen as an accepted practice. Female circumcision is a much larger and more dangerous procedure and is defined today as female genital mutilation which it also is. Yes, it is a barbaric practice.
Circumcision of boys usually have not been banned, and it has been seen as an important religious practice of Jews and Muslims (Wikipedia and more).

What do you say now the Jews in Norway?

In the U.S., 80 percent of men circumcised, and worldwide 30 percent, says Kohn.

- Almost a lie

He refutes the claim that there are no medical reasons for circumcision.
- It's almost like lying, says Kohn, and refers to two studies point out that the risk of becoming infected with HIV for heterosexual men is reduced by 60 percent if they are circumcised. He says that there are a lot of research that supports the fact that Jewish men seldom get sexually transmitted diseases and gynecological cancer is almost nonexistent among Jewish women.
- World Health Organization, WHO, is not just out and recommend circumcision in Africa, but has six active programs where they teach and help African men in the circumcision as part of the fight against the spread of AIDS, says Kohn.

Important for Jews

- What does circumcision for a Jew?
- Circumcision is the most important identity marker for the Jews. It is so basic that many secular Jews have this as a last bastion, in a way, to his own Jewish self of understanding part.
- What do you think is the Ombudsman's purpose in this case?
- I do not think children's ombudsman has any religious motivation here. But I think there is a lack of knowledge and lack of understanding and empathy for the religious dimension in the case. The Ombudsman has no respect for religious arguments in general, and the statement is a symptom of this, says the Jewish spokesman.
- The Norwegian Constitution prevented the original Jews entering Norway. How would an age at circumcision, so the Ombudsman suggests, work for Jews?
- The statement intervene directly in religious freedom. Here are the rights of children set against religious freedom as if we were not concerned about our children. What is this nonsense? One can not put these things up against each other, and I respond to the Ombudsman's use of the Convention in this case, says Ervin Kohn (end of quote).

We must pray, stand up and defend in the so-called multi-cultural Norway that this is completely overrun by other faiths and intelligent than us. This is the story resolved and the way I see it, strong demonic forces that work against the Jews - God's own people that he himself has chosen the fathers. And Muslims and others are also affected. This should really get a lot more to defend what democracy, freedom of expression, equality and tolerance.

I as a believer and a Christian is not even being circumcised, I'm certainly neither Jew nor Muslim, but a saved Gentile that God accepts without circumcision. Had I been a Jew, then had the case set up completely different, that's what empathy is. Putting into other emotions and thinking. It makes me almost sick, is that so many leaders in Norway have no understanding of how other people think that belongs to smaller and different groups one themselves. Let everyone be allowed to have their point of view, whether one is Muslim, Christian, atheist, Jew, or whatever it is now that is the point of view. We are all dependent on each other and need each other, and the diversity enriches, not taking anything from us. But even Aftenposten takes in such serious articles that Jostein Gaarder which oozed hatred against Jews and Jewish contempt, as this article. No and again a no to that sort of thing that this really is. Intolerance, overrun, the steering and power abuse against Jews who are Norwegian and belongs to the Norwegian society on an equal footing with everyone else.

I would like to reproduce this article so that it will remain on the net for all time to the horror, the horror of what each can bring themselves to think and it comes as a feature article in Aftenposten that will be the most serious and reflective paper, sure is, I said butter. Think of the Jews who have a history like no other and even God has given them the land and they are the only people who have lived in the "Jewish land" as a distinct people with their own state, should not be and be recognized anymore, this is exactly that extreme Muslims and extreme socialists with SV and other Communists mean, this takes place today in Norway and they are seen to be serious and decent people who get large space and "recognition".

God's chosen people.

ISRAEL'S HISTORY. We no longer recognize the State of Israel. There is no turning back. The State of Israel has raped the recognition and get no peace until it lays down its weapons. The State of Israel in its current form is history, writes Jostein Gaarder.
NO WAY BACK. It's time to learn a new lesson: We no longer recognize the State of Israel. We could not recognize the South African apartheid regime, and we did not recognize the Afghan Taliban regime. So there were many who did not recognize Saddam Hussein's Iraq or the Serbs' ethnic cleansing. Now we have to get used to the idea: The state of Israel in its current form is history. We do not believe in the notion of God's chosen people. We laugh at this people's barbecues and weep over its misdeeds. To act as God's chosen people is not only stupid and arrogant, but a crime against humanity. We call it racism.
Limits of tolerance.
There are limits to our patience, and there are limits to our tolerance. We do not believe in divine promises as justification for occupation and apartheid. We have left the Middle Ages behind us. We laugh uneasily by those who still believe that the flora, fauna, and galaxies that God has selected one people in particular as his favorite and given it funny stone tablets, burning bushes and a license to kill. We call child murderers of children murderers and will never accept that such have a divine or historic mandate excusing their outrages. We can only say: Shame on all apartheid, shame on ethnic cleansing, shame on every terrorist strike against civilians, whether perpetrated by Hamas, Hezbollah or the state of Israel!
Unscrupulous art of war.
We acknowledge and take over Europe's deep responsibility for the fate of Jews, for the disgraceful harassment, the pogroms and the Holocaust. It was historically and morally necessary for Jews to get their own home. But the state of Israel, with its unscrupulous art of war and its disgusting weapons, has massacred its own legitimacy. It has systematically violated international law, international conventions and numerous UN resolutions and can no longer expect protection from same. It has carpet bombed the recognition. But fear not! Tribulation The times are almost over. The State of Israel has seen its Soweto. We are at the watershed. There is no turning back. The State of Israel has raped the recognition and get no peace until it lays down its weapons.
Without defense, without skin.
May the spirit and words blow apartheid walls of Israel end. The State of Israel does not exist. It is now without defense, without skin. May the world therefore have mercy to the civilian population. For it is not the civil individuals our prophecies of doom are directed motvia wish the people of Israel well, all is well, but we reserve the right not to eat Jaffa oranges as long as they taste bad and is toxic. It was endurable to live some years without the blue grapes of apartheid.
They celebrate triumphs.
We do not believe that Israel provides more than forty killed Lebanese children than those in more than three thousand years has lamented forty years in the desert. We note that many Israelis celebrate such triumphs like they once cheered plagues of the Lord as "fitting punishment" for the Egyptian people. (In that tale, the Lord God of Israel as an insatiable sadist.) We ask ourselves whether most Israelis think that one Israeli life is worth more than forty Palestinian or Lebanese. For we have seen pictures of little Israeli girls writing hateful greetings on the bombs to be dropped on civilians in Lebanon and Palestine. Israeli girls are not cute when they strut with glee over the death and torment on the other side of the fronts.
Blood vengeance retribution.
We do not recognize the State of Israel rhetoric. We do not recognize blood vengeance retribution spiral with the "eye for an eye and tooth for tooth." We do not recognize the principle of ten or a thousand Arab eyes for one Israeli eye. We do not recognize collective punishment or population diets as political weapons. Two thousand years have passed since a Jewish rabbi criticized the ancient doctrine of "an eye for an eye and tooth for tooth." He said: "All you would have others do unto you, that you also should do unto them." We do not recognize a state founded on anti-humanistic principles and the ruins of an archaic national and war religion religion. Or as Albert Schweitzer expressed it: "Humanitarianism never sacrificing a human being for a cause."
Mercy and forgiveness.
We do not recognize the old Kingdom of David as a model for the 21st century map of the Middle East. The Jewish rabbi claimed two thousand years ago that the kingdom of God is not a martial restoration of the Kingdom of David, but that the kingdom of God is within us and among us. The kingdom of God is compassion and forgiveness. Two thousand years have passed since the Jewish rabbi disarmed and thoroughly humanized the old rhetoric of war. Already in his time operated the first Zionist terrorists.
Israel does not listen.
For two thousand years we have rehearsed the syllabus of humanism, but Israel does not listen. It was not Pharisee that helped the man who lay by the wayside because he had fallen among thieves. It was a Samaritan, today we would say a Palestinian. For the first we are people - Christian, Muslim or Jew so. Or as the Jewish rabbi said: "And if ye salute your brethren only, is there any others?" We do not accept the abduction of soldiers. But we accept the deportation of whole populations or the abduction of legally elected parliamentarians and government ministers. We recognize the State of Israel of 1948, but not that of 1967. The State of Israel that fails to recognize, respect and defer to the internationally lawful Israeli state of 1948. Israel wants more, more water and more villages. To achieve this will, with God's help, a final solution to the Palestinian question. The Palestinians have so many other countries, certain Israeli politicians have argued, we have only one.
United States or the world?
Or, as the state of Israel, the highest protection puts it: "May God continue two bless America." It was a little child took note of that. She turned to her mother and said: "Why does the President always end his speeches with 'God bless America? Why not,' God bless the world?" So it was a Norwegian poet who let out this childlike sigh: " Why doth Humanity so slowly progress? " It was he who wrote so beautifully about the "Jew" and "Jewess." But he rejected the notion of God's chosen people. While calling himself a Muslim.
Mindedness and compassion.
We do not recognize Israel. Not today, not in writing, not in sorrow and wrath hour. If the entire Israeli nation should fall to its own devices and parts of the population have to flee the occupied areas into another diaspora NOK, so we say: May the surroundings stay calm and show them mercy. It is forever a crime without mitigating circumstances, to lay hand on refugees and stateless. Peace and free passage for the evacuating civilian population no longer has any state that can protect them. Do not shoot at the fugitives! Do not aim at them! They are vulnerable as snails without shells, vulnerable like slow caravans of Palestinian and Lebanese refugees, defenseless like women and children and old in Qana, Gaza, Sabra and Shatila. Give the Israeli refugees shelter, give them milk and honey! Let not one Israeli child pay with his life. Far too many children and civilians have been murdered already.
