J'Acuse: Shame on Germany for Circumcision Ban

Commented Sep 11, 2012 at 14:21:26 in World

“Mark, there is an open letter signed by over 600 German doctors who accuse the Jews of a ritually sex abuse ("sexuelle Gewalt") of their children by circumcising them, here you go: http://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/inland/offener-brief-zur-beschneidung-religionsfreiheit-kann-kein-freibrief-fuer-gewalt-sein-11827590.html

“Sorry, but "sex abuse" is a malicious mistranslation.

The German word "Gewalt" does not translate into "abuse". The closest translations in this context would be "coercion" or "force". They are clearly refering to forced genital surgery and NOT to child sexual abuse.

BTW: Not all of the signers are doctors, and there are also German doctors who defended circumcision.”
