Plain for all to see

June 10, 2011

If West Dunbartonshire has been making you queasy, take a glance at San Francisco, the heart of liberal America. Plain old-fashioned antisemitic loathing appears to be out and proud in the campaign against circumcision.

The Jew-hatred behind one of the main campaign tools is breathtaking, with an Aryan hero battling a tallit-donning "Monster Mohel". And there are the blood libel and ritual murder of Christian children to add to the mix. Until now, the motivation of some of those seeking to ban circumcision has been murky. Thank you, Mr Hess, for clarifying matters in this instance: it's pure antisemitism.
