The kindest cut of all or is it?

No longer seen as acceptable by the vast majority of Danes.  ‘Halachic circumcision’ is under threat from a new proposed law currently before the Danish Parliament.

The Debate of the Absurd

This proposed ‘Ban’ on circumcision follows the outlawing of ‘Shechita’, which requires the slaughter of animals without stunning them first, as required by Jewish religious Law; this ‘Ban’ came into effect in 2014.

What lies behind the politically correct spin that labels circumcision, a children’s welfare issue?

Welfare Issue?

Firstly; it allows the latent anti-Semitism and xenophobic bias held by the majority of Danes and Europeans, in general, to be expressed openly without the stigma such views would normally incur.  Underlying the ‘Spin’ is a dangerous and all to the frequent manifestation of ‘Jew Hatred’.  These ‘Bans’ often presage greater restrictions and are basic weapons used for victimizing a countries Jewish population.

Secondly; a Jews fusion of loyalty to the host country and to the Jewish State is anathema to the ‘Left and Right’ of the West’s political spectrum.  Social Democrat Irving Howe hit the nail on the head when he wrote, “In the warmest of hearts there is a cold spot for the Jews.” 

Thirdly; these laws are an attack on Jewish identity, they in Effect contribute to the breakdown of  Jewish national characteristics and promote assimilation into the host population.  Such laws are packaged in ‘high moral sounding titles’,  while camouflaging the ideological war against the Jews.

Assimilation a New Holocaust

Whats to be done?  If we are to escape  “Assimilation”.  To start we as a people need to recognise there is no viable future for Jews in the Diaspora.

Therefore the realisation that the ‘Land of Israel and Torah’ is the only option open to remaining ‘Jewish and free’ must be paramount in educating the exiled Jew.

The Diaspora will continue to implode and become a very real threat to the lives of those who choose to remain.

Therefore time is of the essence!

Yosef Yigal made Aliya in 2014 while Sylvia his wife is an Israeli. In late 2014 Achdut HaLev concentrated all its resources towards Aliya and the rebuilding of Eretz Yisrael. Excluding none and embracing all. The commandment to settle the Land of Israel is equal in importance to all the Torah Commandments all together: (Sifri Deut 12:29)
