Circumcision, the Greatest Crime Against Humanity, Racist and Catalyzer of Fanaticism, Terrorism, Genocide and FeminicideMichel Hervé Navoiseau-Bertaux Salem-News.com

(PARIS) - Circumcision, the greatest crime against humanity, racist and catalyzer of fanaticism, terrorism, genocide and feminicide (translation revised by Azucena Flores and Jonathan Friedman)
"The sex of the (child) well appears as a stake of possession, a symbol of submission." Simone Veil, who wrote "woman" instead of "child" 
In a minority (20% of humanity), some cultures destroy the specific organs of autosexuality (the foreskin, and sometimes the clitoris). In a majority, the other cultures respect human anatomy. The use of the same term to designate both mutilations shows that circumcision is responsible for excision. But the havocs of excision are only the tip of the iceberg of sexual mutilation. For if the physiological and sexological damage of circumcision is overshadowed, its psychological outcome is dramatic on a world scale; practised massively upon minors, these tortures and human sacrifices are the height of brutal methods of education that teach violence, barbarity, sexism, and racism. The ineptitude of circumcision is blatant in the fact that one of the main expected result: reducing sexual desire, is not reached. It must be presumed that other goals are aimed at.
So, Miriam Pollack showed that circumcision is a matter of submission to the tribe and sexism [ii]. Circumcision is all the more sexist that it forces men to dominate women in coitus. Sexism being degree zero of racism, it is not astonishing that the latter should be present in those obscene mutilations. Imposed upon children through an ignoble torture, the racism of sexual mutilation appears on two levels:
1/ Confusion of ideas ("reasoning" through amalgam) is at the heart of racist thought. Then, the racism of sexual mutilation lies on a series of amalgams:
1.1 The amalgam between sexual mutilation and superiority. The extravagant feeling of a physical superiority has been exposed by Reyes and Zagdanski [iii]. The idea of a moral superiority belongs to a [iv]. The great, unavowed design of sexual mutilation is to dominate the youth through the terror of a human sacrifice evoking castration and the death penalty. The traditional motivation is to produce supermen (superwomen), assumed to be morally superior, elected by God or the ancestors. Based on a physical differentiation, this discrimination is a kind of artificial racism [v]. Resting upon an inept guilt and will of punishment, this claim of moral, and even spiritual superiority (the mutilation suggests abstention and despise of autosexuality, decreed a sin), is hypocrite and megalomaniac.
1.2 The amalgam between gender and sex. Sometimes present (African cultures), it imagines that the suppression of the sexual organs evoking the opposite sex would grant a superiority through a supplementary femininity or masculinity.
1.3 The amalgam between distinctive physical sign and ignored handicap [vi]. May 7 2012, obtaining the approval of seventy percent of the population, the high court of Köln condemned the circumcision of minors but tolerated elective mutilation in adulthood. But elementary bioethics [vii] [viii] [ix] does not make any distinction of age to forbid to perform a mutilation without a "very serious medical motive"[x].
1.4 The amalgam between a particular physical sign and a sign of ethnical identity. It comes within a sectarian choice that insults the human species. Distinguishing the ethnic group through a surgical operation is a discriminatory, ultra-racist collective madness [xi] . Psychiatry would qualify it a transgenerational and collective syndrome of Münchhausen by proxy [xii].
The fanatics of Greek antiquity, those of the sect of Skoptzis (Russia), and the Hidjas (India) did or do (Hidjas) not stop at the castration of the foreskin; they would cut the whole penis off!
2 Endogamy. This racism is blatant in the fact that the myths and rumours about circumcision are an odious manipulation of young women; it aims at persuading them that the "non-circumcised" are profligate, without hygiene, bad lovers and, in cultures practising the mutilation after the age of speech, cowards (according to the African saying recalled by Mandela: "A non-circumcised is not a man."). These superstitions are the deed of a patriarchy that aims on the one hand, at ensuring the possession of women for itself through endogamy, and, on the other hand, to strengthen the cohesion and perpetuation of the community.
This racism is still more strikingly affirmed with feminine excision for which, in Western countries, parents would affirm: "If we don't do it, she will not find a husband." Inside their ethnic group maybe! But the same can be said of circumcision: "If we do not circumcise him, he won't find a wife.", meaning "within the community". A surgically strengthened racism is really a height of racism.
Masked behind culture, tradition, religion and folklore, the artificial racism of circumcision is more cunning than ordinary racism. It is not astonishing that it should give rise to counter racisms. Spinoza, Freud and Rozenberg [xiii] mentioned this danger.
Sigmund Freud's two great findings are the unconscious and hypocritically called infantile sexuality (autosexuality). Those who, upon helpless children, make the sacrifice of the specific organs of the latter, very obviously act under the sway of an unconscious guilt of their own autosexuality. This culturally transmitted guilt has unsuspected consequences. The founder of psychoanalysis so explains anti-Semite hatred: "... fear of castration is one of the commonest and strangest motives for repression and thus for the formation of neuroses. The analysis of cases in which circumcision though not, it is true, castration, has been carried out on boys as a cure or punishment of masturbation (a far from rare occurrence in Anglo-American society) has given our conviction a last degree of certainty."
But Freud did not go up to the end of his thought. For the unconscious that, according to him, puts the part in the same category as the whole, a threat of castration is also a threat of individual death. Now, exerted on a whole ethnic group, an individual threat of death is a threat of extermination of the whole group, immediately projected upon the adverse group by the unconscious. Of the thirteen genocides of modern times: Congolese (1870), Hereros (1904), Armenians (1905), Jews (1942-45), Tziganes (1942-45), Biafrans (1966-68), Hutus (1972), Kurds (1988), Tutsis (1990), Bosnians (1991-95), Bengalis (1990-2000), inhabitants of Darfur (2003), Rohinghyas (2012), twelve involved circumcised peoples on at least one side and three on both sides. Circum-cised peoples perpetrated six of them. Between 1996 and 2002, but for one civil war (Sri Lanka), all wars involved at least one circumcising country. The frequency of wars was more than three times higher in circumcising countries. The death penalty is twice more frequent in them. Torture is more widespread in them. They are the only ones to practise excision. The feminicide in Eastern Congo is the work of circumcised Hutu looters who destroy those whom they used as a foreskin afterwards. Circumcised Congo holds the world record of rape: 400,000 annual-ly. In Norway, between 2006 and 2010, two per cent of circumcised men committed a hundred per cent of the rapes, upon ninety per cent of native Norwegians. Sexual mutila-tion separates the child from the mother. This is monstrous, the result is catastrophic; it is the breeding ground of (reciprocal) paranoia, fanaticism, group and state terrorism, and sexism. Circumcision makes the equilibrium of terror and the fortune of gun merchants.
Repression of autosexuality by the matriarchy-patriarchy is a planetary disease that mass murders Mozart; rare are those who escape it. Sexual excisions are its most hateful tool. A quasi-castration for women, a genuine threat of castration for men, they are a threat of death for the individual and of extermination for the group. The attendants to the first symposium of NOCIRC were the first to affirm: "The greatest crime against humanity is the torture and mutilation of children." [xv]
Alice Miller took up these words [xvi]. Due to the age of the victims, it is the sole crime against humanity which nobody complains about. It also the only one that, perpetrated in blind beliefs and without intention of harm, is not punishable. In any case, medicine may not be used for bringing the backing of science to primitive rituals. Basic, the right to the body must be mentioned in article 1 of the Universal declaration of human rights: "All human beings are born free and equal in rights, in first place the right to the body, in its three dimensions of integrity, dignity and autonomy."
