Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

Norway Gets the Knife Out for the Brit Milah

Norway, already ignominious for the amount of antisemitism rife, invites suspicions of a gratuitous offensive against one of the ancient rites of Judaism with the proposed legal amendment at the urging of the State Ombudsman for Children that the ritual circumcision of children below the age of fifteen be banned.

Since Muslim boys are circumcised around that age, if the amendment goes ahead with the proposed lower age limit they will not be so disadvantaged, but of course Jewish boys are normally received into the Covenant of Abraham on the eighth day of life, when a mohel removes the foreskin.

It's reported that in a letter to Norway's Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store and Justice Minister Knut Storberget, Anne Sender on behalf of Norwegian Jewry's chief representative organisation, the Mosaic Religious Community, has indicated her community's objection to the amendment, noting:
'This suggestion is going to go to Jewish media all over the world and support the idea that Norway is a "Jew-hating country.'
And we agree - this will in practice mean that "Jews don’t have access to the kingdom" again.'
Says Professor Trond Markestad, head of the Norwegian Medical Association's ethics committee, who would like circumcision to be completely phased out:
“I urge the Jewish and Muslim communities to find an alternative religious ceremony.”

  1. It is easy to say, leave that dump, but they can go abroad to do it. I bet the Norwegians don't say anything when their mozlems send their girls to be genitally mutilated in Somalia etc!

    Funny that but medical investigations have proved conclusively (although not the reason for it) that circumcision is far more hygienic and is less likely to promote communicable sexual diseases. However don't that get in the way of your ranting - mutiliation its not since it does not prevent the use of what the organ was meant for which cannot be said for female circumcision.
