#2 Thought that's what Rabbis and/or mohels did. As Colin Powell said: "Being responsible sometimes means pissing people off [or getting sued]." The single finger salute is a useful adjunct when pissing people off--like icing on a cake. When pissing people off, the only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes.

Except that German doctors and hospitals aren't doing circumcisions any more for fear of being arrested, following the court case about the Moslem circumcision-gone-wrong in Cologne a few months ago. Germans have long had a distaste for it -- when I was pregnant in Germany in 1991, the hospital obstetrician told me he would only do the procedure if I held the baby myself, as his nurses thought it barbaric and refused to be involved. Given that nurses in Germany are so old fashioned they think what the doctor tells them to...

#11 IIRC, Muslims also practice circumcision. <sarcasm> Of course, it's all right to annoy the Juices by banning one of their sacred ancient rights. </sarcasm>But what idiot passed a law that would annoy Muslims?

#12 German Parliament has already announced to pass a law allowing circumcision (with certain guidelines that will be acceptable for Jews), so this should settle the legal disputes.
