N.Y. State's Hasidic Circumcision Protocol Rescinded More Than 4 Years Ago
Hella Winston broke the story in The Jewish Week...
Rabbi David Zwiebel of Agudath Israel of America told Winston he did not know the protocol was rescinded.
Even if that is true (and there is evidence that it may not be), Zwiebel knew that every medical scientist who is not a stooge – like Dr. Daniel Berman, for example – for him and the moetzet gedolei haTorah, the so-called gedolim, senior rabbis, who lead Agudah, and who has been asked has said clearly that there is no safe way to directly suck a baby's penis / open circumcision wound. And all those "gedolim" knew it, as well, as did both Satmar Rebbes, the CRC (of Williamsburg) rabbis, and Rabbi David Niederman, Satmar's point man on issues requiring pressuring (or, perhaps, if rumors are true, bribing) politicians. Even Rabbi Shea Hecht and other Chabad rabbis lobbied to keep metzitzah b'peh (MBP) legal.
Herpes Simplex 1 is transferred through MBP. Sometimes it damages the baby, causing illness immediately or even years later. Sometimes it causes brain damage. Sometimes it kills.
Every one of these men I mentioned above, including Berman, should be held legally responsible for the death of the baby who was killed in September when a mohel sucked his bleeding penis.
The Jewish Week's Hella Winston exclusively reported that Rabbi Yitzchok Fischer, the mohel involved in the Herpes Simplex 1 death of a baby and the Herpes Simplex 1 brain damage of his brother in 2004 gave Herpes Simplex 1 to another child in 2007.
Fischer should have been barred from doing MBP in 2004 or 2005. He wasn't because the men I mentioned above lobbied against it and against banning MBP.
Gov. Pataki caved in almost immediately. New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg caved in shortly afterward. The Satmar Hasidim's bloc votes and Agudah Israel of America's intensive lobbying kept Rabbi Fischer in business, endangering more Judaic kids.
Zwiebel, Berman, the 'gedolim," Niederman, the Satmar Rebbes and the CRC (Williamsburg) rabbis all have blood on their hands. And every one of them should be indicted, put on trial, convicted and jailed. And so should Pataki and Bloomberg.
It sounds harsh.
But Judaic children have been sickened and maimed and Judaic children have died because of what these men did.
It's long past time for the US Department of Justice to protect the civil rights of Orthodox Judaic children by prosecuting the rabbis and politicians who are abusing them by means of Judaism's Talmudic rite of circumcision.
Dear On the Contrary Reader: Does the startling news conveyed to you yesterday and today about Judaism's lethal "metzitzah b'peh" Talmudic rite of circumcision have value for you? Do you believe its wider dissemination is of international importance? On the Contrary cannot continue on a regular basis if only the same handful of people buy a book or CD from us or send a donation. There are hundreds of you who have done nothing. Maybe you can't because of your personal situation or The Economy. In that case, accept this free information in the spirit in which it is given, as a public service. Tell others about On the Contrary, and pray for us. Many hundreds of you however, do have the means to purchase or donate if you cared enough. We are living in the Midnight Hour on the clock of destiny. If you can't step up to support rare information that severely undercuts received opinion and the power base of the enemies of Truth at this critical time, how can you expect that the future will be anything other than defeat and failure? It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.
Help 'On the Contrary' light the Candle of Truth
