    Israeli woman fined $140 a day for refusing to circumcise son - Haaretz

    An Israeli woman who refused to circumcise her son is being fined $140 a day.

    It appears originally the child was not circumcised because of medical reasons she decided not to go through with it. The father is fighting in the courts to force her to circumcise him.

    Apparently the fine is being imposed by a Rabbinical Court.

    Israel is starting to resemble its Muslim neighbours more and more these days.

    ...An Israeli rabbinical court has handed down a precedent-setting ruling that requires a mother to circumcise her son, against her will, or pay a fine of NIS 500 ($140) for every day he remains uncircumcised.

    “The baby was born with a medical problem, so we couldn’t circumcise him on the eighth day as is customary,” said Elinor, the boy’s mother. “As time went on, I started reading about what actually happens in circumcision, and I realized that I couldn’t do that to my son. He’s perfect just as he is.”

    The mother said that the baby’s father had a part in the decision, but when the couple began to discuss their divorce in the rabbinical court, he unexpectedly decided to insist that their son be circumcised.

    Israel's rabbinical courts are part of the country's justice system and have legal jurisdiction over matters of religion, including marriage and divorce, when it comes to the country's Jewish citizens...Elsewhere in the ruling, the judges wrote: “Removal of the foreskin prepares the soul [of the baby] to accept the yoke of Heaven and study God’s Torah and commandments.”

    Some people around here seem to have an unhealthy fixation on Jews.

    I moan on behalf of all the innocent posters who have to endure this nonsense every day, all day.

    I couldn't care less about Israel. I wish others felt the same way.

    I make no apology for defending the rights of these Jewish children not to be mutilated.

    Course you don't. We can see how concerned you are. Very moving experience it is too.
