Germany on a Roll? Not This Time!

So, you think that history can't repeat itself?  Think again.  A German court recently banned brit milah in Germany.  Once again the German state is mixing into matters of religion, and not to the benefit of those religious practitioners. 

The Jewish Press has a petition up against this intrusion into religious life which will be given to the German ambassador in Israel.  Wait, I know what you are going to say--so what, what can one petition do?  Really?  The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.  And unless you take that first step, no other steps can follow.  No one is all that busy that they cannot take one minute to protest an act of barbarity clothed in judicial robes.

And please, pass on the link to your friends and acquaintances.  Unlike pre-WWII, our voices can, will and must be heard.

Thanks to Joe Settler at the Muqata for the link below

I'll sign the petition but what good will it really do? You think that Germany is going to care that in Israel they'll give the ambassador the petition? What will that change?
