A piece in yesterday’s Times. Melanie Phillips is a British Jewish journalist, author, and public commentator. I am an admirer of much of her work, but she remains a supporter of the illegal “un-British practice” of Male Genital Mutilation, and I’m about to tweet her accordingly (@MelanieLatest), if I’m not banned from sending her tweets.
Your campaign against circumcision for Jewish boys at eight days old not only displays utter ignorance, since this causes no harm or suffering whatsoever, but it targets the fundamental rite of Jewish identity. It is thus profoundly anti-Jew.
Do not contact me again.
An irony will not be lost on followers of this blog, of course, the claim that circumcision of Jewish boys at eight days old ’causes no harm or suffering whatsoever’ itself ‘displays utter ignorance’. Sometimes the cleverest people can be wilfully blind to matters which they should research before expressing a view on them.
Melanie Phillips should watch this video of Eric Clopper, a young American Jewish academic, fired by Harvard for revealing the truth about MGM. I’ll include a link in my tweet to her.
