Iceland’s proposed ban on circumcision rattles Jews, Muslims


CBS News: The bill aims to outlaw circumcision when not for medical reasons and was introduced by nine lawmakers from four political parties. It claims that any parent allowing the “irreversible” procedure disregards a boy’s right to self-determination. Those found guilty could face up to six years in prison.


The majority of Iceland’s population identify as Lutheran, according to the National Statistics Institute. Some 20,000 — or one-in-17 people — said they had no religious affiliation.

There are around 1,000 Muslims living in Iceland, according to the agency. No official statistics are kept on the number of Jews, but estimates range from 50 to a few hundred. more …

Opinion: The Lutheran Church is so steeped in replacement theology they ignore OT Scriptures:

And the uncircumcised male child, who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin, that person shall be cut off from his people; he has broken My covenant.” Genesis 17:14

Could it be any clearer? Lutherans like the Catholics, the World Council of Churches, the Presbyterian Church USA, the Methodist Church, the Anglican Church and the United Church of Christ are completely blind to prophecy due to the unbiblical replacement theology.

“I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3

In Judaism, uncircumcision is considered a blemish, circumcision was to remove it and to render Abraham and his descendants ‘perfect’. To Jews it is not an option. Most Muslims, even though it is not in the Koran, are circumcised.

In an article “The Ban on Circumcision and How Europe is Denying its Past” (here) attempts to show male circumcision akin to Islamic female mutilation, to which the President of the Conference of European Rabbis declared that, this is a “new antisemitism”.

The Rabbi’s charge has a strong basis in history. In 168 BC an evil ruler became king of Syria. From the apocryphal book of 1 Maccabees 1:11–12“And there came out of them a wicked root, Antiochus the Epiphanes who had been hostage in Rome.”

Antiochus regarded himself as Zeus, the Greek god; hence, his self-given title Epiphanes, meaning “manifestation of God” or “illustrious one.” His diabolical plan was to Hellenize Israel and thereby eradicate Judaism.

The apocryphal book 1 Maccabees 1:63-67 DRA:

“Now the women that circumcised their children were slain according to the commandment of” King Antiochus. And they hanged the children about their necks in all their houses: and those that had circumcised them, they put to death. And there was very great wrath upon the people.”
