Israeli Intactivist Group Produces Hebrew MaterialsSalem-News.com
Israeli anti-circumcision activists are busy and their efforts constant...
(TEL AVIV) - One subject we cover frequently at Salem-News.com is the stark reality of circumcision of boys and girls. Our articles examine the physical and emotional implications, the modifications of laws regulating this practice, and the cultural changes and developments that are raising awareness in leaps and bounds.
It is a hard subject with sharp consequences. Jews and Muslims believe they are supposed to cut off their children's genitalia. However, as our Paris-based anti-circ writer Sigismond (Michel Hervé Navoiseau-Bertaux) has revealed, Moses actually was told by God not to do this.
Circumcision, or genital mutilation, which is a proper and descriptive term, is the mark of a Jewish slave and those males who are circumcised lose 30% of the tissue that makes sex enjoyable. Our California anti-circ writer, Dr. Richard Matteoli, highlights the mental health issues that circumcision brings, and sometimes in frightening ways that would make any parent consider the act.
Our Oregon physician writer, Dr. Phillip Leveque, has revealed the pain babies suffer through the use of the common tool, the 'Gomco Clamp', from a first-hand perspective. Dr. Leveque, who fought the Nazi's in WWII, says a child's cry from being circumcised is worse than that of a mortally wounded combat soldier screaming for his mother in his final moments of life. Babies are hypersensitive to pain, not that it requires a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Babies are incapable of any coherent type of protest beyond screaming bloody murder.
My article about how more than 100 babies in the US die each year from circumcision served as an eye-opening introduction to the darkest part of this practice, it is unimaginable that we let this become a standard in the United States. It makes us look fairly prehistoric and certainly barbaric. Our writer Diane Walsh in Canada has revealed the gut wrenching facts about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
Our musician/writer, Agron Belica, has one of the most well known anti-circ songs in the world, titled 'Leave those babies alone' which will be featured next month at the famous San Francisco gay pride parade. He has a second song and music video about anti-circumcision as well, Circumcision is child abuse
But perhaps most interesting, is the fact that Salem-News.com has a network of anti-circumcision groups and individuals who constantly supply new information and background. We have friends all over Israel fighting from within the Jewish community to force change, and we are one of the few groups in the world with a Muslim anti-circ writer.
The following information just arrived in our newsroom today, it reviews the new emerging material being circulated in Hebrew throughout Israel.
Gonnen and Ben Shalem (The Israeli Association for the Abolition of Circumcision), two Israeli Intactivist groups, have produced stickers and postcards in Hebrew:
1. (card, front)
1. (card, back)
Circumcision = Abuse
I am against circumcision
and any unnecessary word
[a double entendre in Hebrew]
PENIS IS GOOD FOR THE JEWS!
The association for the abolition of circumcision.
JEWS DON'T CUT JEWS!
The association for the abolition of circumcision
