Circumcision consists of three parts: the description given below is taken from The Jewish Encyclopedia (1906). It refers to the rite as it is carried out on a new-born baby on the eighth day after birth.
The operation [circumcision] consists of three parts: “milah,” “peri’ah,” and “mezizah.”
Milah: The child having been placed upon a pillow resting upon the lap of the godfather or “sandek” (he who is honored by being assigned to hold the child), the mohel exposes the parts by removal of garments, etc., and instructs the sandek how to hold the child’s legs. The mohel then grasps the prepuce between the thumb and index-finger of his left hand, exerting sufficient traction to draw it from the glans, and places the shield (see Fig. 1, next column) in position just before the glans. He now takes his knife and with one sweep excises the foreskin. This completes the first act. The knife (see Fig. 3) most commonly used is double-edged, although one like those ordinarily used by surgeons is also often employed.
Peri’ah: After the excision has been completed, the mohel seizes the inner lining of the prepuce, which still covers the glans, with the thumb-nail and index-finger of each hand, and tears it so that he can roll it fully back over the glans and expose the latter completely. The mohel usually has his thumb-nail suitably trimmed for the purpose. In exceptional cases the inner lining of the prepuce is more or less extensively adherent to the glans, which interferes somewhat with the ready removal; but persistent effort will overcome the difficulty.
Mezizah: By this is meant the sucking of the blood from the wound. The mohel takes some wine in his mouth and applies his lips to the part involved in the operation, and exerts suction, after which he expels the mixture of wine and blood into a receptacle (see Fig. 4, below) provided for the purpose. This procedure is repeated several times, and completes the operation, except as to the control of the bleeding and the dressing of the wound.
I do not know who came up with this ghoulish notion. While circumcision is certainly commanded in the Torah nowhere therein does it say exactly how this is to be carried out. I can only surmise that this is the product of the sick minds of the Talmudists, the self-proclaimed interpreters of the law, the ones that arrogantly presume to know the mind of God.
This entire procedure is, of course, totally unhygienic. The mohel – the one who carries out the ritual – or the baby or both could be carriers of some infectious disease. And despite Jewish denial that the practice is unhygienic (what else did you expect of these “Lords of the Lies”?) there is clear-cut evidence that diseases are being spread this way!
L. Emmett Holt, M.D., writing in 1913, states:
“A search through the medical literature brings to light a considerable number of examples of tuberculosis spread by means of ritual circumcision. In all I have collected with the assistance of Doctors Alan Brown and Stafford McLean, references or reports more or less detailed of forty other cases …
“While the number of reported instances of tuberculosis acquired through circumcision is considerable there must be a much larger number that have never found their way into literature. It is certain also that syphilis has been spread in this manner. These facts lead me to emphasize the statement made by the late Professor Maas, the German surgeon, that ‘it is the duty of physician to raise his protest against the performance of ritualistic circumcision in every case.’”

Has anything changed since then? Not likely! Why then do we not hear anything about infections? Considering the stranglehold Jews have on Western nations how likely is it that infections caused by the traditional circumcision ritual would ever be openly acknowledged? Do you seriously expect the Jewish-controlled media, in the day and age of AIDS, would allow this taboo subject to become public knowledge, let alone allow it to become a matter for public discussion?
And here is something else that few people realize: the practice of traditional circumcision is, clearly and unequivocally, a criminal offence! Why is that?
Circumcision is, by any definition, a surgical procedure! We are then looking at two scenarios: the mohel (the one who carries out the circumcision) is either qualified and licensed to practise medicine, i.e. surgery, or he is not.
a) If he is not qualified and licenced we are dealing with someone who is practising medicine without a licence, which is a criminal offence in every civilized country of the world
b) If, however, he is qualified and licensed to practise medicine but uses the traditional Jewish method, as described above, he is guilty of malpractice. It is NOT acceptable for a modern surgeon to put his mouth on an open and bleeding wound and suck blood or use his fingernail to make an incision – even if the fingernail is sterilized! This is not just a minor violation of his professional code of practice which might lead to a slap on the wrist. This is criminal culpability which ought to see him in a court!!!
Often adult males undergo circumcision. This may be a Jew whose parents failed – for whatever reason – to have him circumcised or it may be a non-Jew who wants to convert. I do not know how this is handled and, frankly, I do not really want to know the details. Even a proselyte who has already been circumcised for medical reasons will still have to have some blood drawn!
In these cases, at least, it can be argued that the ritual is carried out with the informed consent of an adult. The circumcision of a child, however, incapable of knowledge and unable to give or withhold consent is nothing less than assault. Let’s not to put too fine a point on it it is
A CRIME !!!
