Global Jewish Backlash over Iceland’s Anti-Circumcision Initiative

The relatively small number of circumcisions performed is due to the fact that of the 340,000 people living in Iceland, there are only 35 Jews and less than 1,000 Muslims. For both religions, circumcision is a religious rite, but it is obligatory and central to Judaism.

. . . .

Despite massive support from over 25% of the healthcare industry, at least 48% of parliament, and passing a preliminary reading, Iceland’s Judicial Affairs Committee decided to scrap the bill before MPs could even participate in their own so-called “democracy” and vote on it.

. . . .

Mike Levin, a Jew who moved to Iceland from Chicago, hopes the presence of Feldman, Iceland’s first Rabbi, will encourage state funding for Jewish causes within Iceland. That’s right, chiseling tax dollars from native Icelanders to fund Jewry like their new proposed Synogogue.

. . . .

But what was most effective in scrapping the bill was Orthodox Union enlisting the help of a Jew who sits in US Congress — Eliot Engel of N.Y. — to personally pen a letter of warning to Iceland’s Ambassador, alluding to the bill jeopardizing Iceland’s relationship with the US.
