The sad thing about the whole Weiner affair is that he is a firm supporter of Israel. I think we are going thru the beginnings of a wave of anti-semitism throughout the country. Next November in San Francisco a law will be on the ballot opposing circumcision. The argument for the ban states that a decision cannot be made by parents because it's a man's choice and cannot be made for religious, cultural or social reasons. Circumcision is not just a Jewish decision but has deeps roots in the bible. Genesis 17: 6,8,10 states "I will make you exceedingly fertile, and make nations of you, and kings shall come forth from you.... I assign the land you sojourn in to you and your offspring to come, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting holding. I will be their God... Such shall the covenant between Me and you and your offspring, every man child among you shall be circumcised. In the Jewish community there is currently those who don't agree. But the fact is that Gentiles and Jews alike circumcise their sons. As a nurse with 35 years experience let me tell you. I am hugely FOR circumcision. I won't go into the slimy details but what I have cleaned from under foreskins would make you gag. Yuck... be that as it may, what is happening in San Francisco is not just about foreskins it's anti-Semitic and it's so obvious that it is frightening that people ARE NOT screaming about this. The proponents of the ban have produced a comic book featuring a blond, blue eyed(Aryan type) hero named (get ready for this......) FORESKIN MAN who rescues a Jewish baby boy from the evil mohel set out to remove the foreskin. At the end of the "comic" book is a picture of a menorah on fire(ala KKK and the burning crosses) and the menorah appears to be made out of bodies. Have too many years passed since the Holocaust? Where is the huge public outcry about this?
God told Abraham in Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them who bless you and curse him who curses you and in you all families of the Earth be blessed.
I support Israel.
