Why are most non-Jewish babies in the United States circumcised? Because a large number of doctors and hospitals and medical elites are Jewish. Circumcision is rare in Europe and people are fine. They’re not dying on the streets because they’re intact.
Why is there so much circumcision in America? Because our medical establishment reads the facts completely differently from every other country? No. Because about an eighth of doctors are Jewish and they tend to work at the most powerful hospitals, which tend to be owned by Jews, and so circumcision is thought to be the way to go because it makes Jews less conspicuous.
The New Testament clearly states that circumcision is not necessary. I wonder why the goyim don’t follow that? The news media in America tend to frame circumcision as good for you and those opposed to circumcision as anti-semites. From what I’ve seen, most circumcision stories in America are written by Jews and framed as pro-circ. They rarely talk about the function of the foreskin, they talk about the pros and cons of cutting off the foreskin.
I wonder if Jewish elites think that the world will be a safer place for Jews if more goyim are circumcised.
Circumcisions will be performed within the next five years on 20 million African men to help reduce the spread of AIDS, according to a program announced Monday night by the US government and UN and advocated by the Jerusalem-based Operation Abraham project.
UNAIDS and the Obama administration announced the initiative in Geneva, saying that the five-year program will save more than 3.4 million people from being infected with HIV, and $16.5 billion in national and international funds that would have been spent to cope with the disease.
A delegation of Israeli ritual circumcisors (mohalim) returned last week from a two-week trip to Africa, where they helped the UN write medical protocols for the mass operations according to Israel’s experience.
Israel has circumcised about 100,000 immigrants from the former Soviet Union and Ethiopia who converted to Judaism or whose religious status was not recognized without it.
Israel’s major contribution to the struggle against AIDS in the Third World, where the disease is endemic, is advocating male circumcisions and showing how it has been done here for ritual, rather than strictly medical, reasons.
Jewish boys are ritually circumcised at eight days and Muslim boys at an older age, making adult circumcisions around the world rare.
Studies from five years ago clearly proved that removing the foreskin – where the virus can hide – can reduce by 60 percent the risk of a man getting infected with the HIV virus during sex. So far, 14 targeted countries in Africa have adopted the WHO’s directive to include circumcision in their public health programs, and some of them have already started their mass surgeries.
An Israeli team from the Jerusalem AIDS Project, along with eight medical centers, launched Operation Abraham and wrote the protocols for the UNAIDS/US project. Israeli volunteer physicians and operating room nurses, funded by donations, began in 2007 to perform the circumcisions, in coordination with local medical authorities, in Swaziland.
The project continued in South Africa and is due to expand to four more countries next year.
Currently, the Israelis are giving professional advice to African medical staffers on how to set up clinics and perform the operation on teenage and adult men. So far, the Israeli organization has helped to set up three mass circumcision clinics in Swaziland and 10 in South Africa. Some 40 Israeli surgeons and nurses have participated and trained 150 local medical staff to safely and speedily do the surgery with local anesthesia. By the end of December, tens of thousands of such operations will have been performed.
