Next year we shall be holding more protests against Male Genital Mutilation, and they will have a bigger impact, leading to more media coverage.
I had a little time to kill in London yesterday, between meetings, and I used it to take some video footage of two Male Genital Mutilators in Stamford Hill. The first was Dr Joseph Spitzer, a leading mohel (Jewish traditional circumciser). The video (3:00) is here. From the description under the video:
Dr Joseph Spitzer is a Male Genital Mutilator who works in a clinic in Stamford Hill:
Cranwich Road Surgery
62 Cranwich Road
London N16 5JF
I worked my way through the clinic’s multi-level high-technology security system, in a scene reminiscent of the film, Mission Impossible.
Dr Spitzer is the Medical Officer of the Initiation Society, and the author of a paper on Jewish circumcision in the UK.
In 2013 he offered – through a piece in The Jewish Chronicle – to circumcise the newborn Prince George.
This clinic is one of a number in the area, where we plan to protest regularly in the future.
On the British Film Institute website, in relation to a Channel 4 programme:
Asks whether it is right to alter the body. Dr Joseph Spitzer is a Mohel who performs circumcision on Jewish boys. He says that circumcision is carried out for one reason only: that God commanded that Abraham and all his male descendants should be circumcised.
At least Spitzer doesn’t go in for any nonsense about there being medical benefits from MGM. As a mohel for over 35 years, he must know as well as anyone that there are medical disbenefits from MGM. And yet he continues to ply his evil trade…
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
