NORWAY’S PROGRESS PARTY CALLS FOR BAN ON CIRCUMCISION OF BOYS

Article from the Jerusalem Post, although not mentioned, Muslim ritual rircumcision and halal slaughter, without stunning, are also for the chop.

Scandinavia leads the way on children’s rights and humane animal treatment where these things conflict with primitive cult practices.

“The rabbi goes on to explain why the students practice on the babies of the weaker strata of the population: “Why not?” he asks in the recording. “They have no father. No mother… There’s no problem. Even if your cut isn’t straight, they won’t say anything, because they don’t understand anything.”
