Islam and male circumcision

To Mutilate in the Name of Allah or Jehovah   In our opinion, a God who demands that his believers be mutilated and branded on their genitals the same as cattle, is a God of questionable ethics. It could be legitimate to perform either male or female circumcision, as any other surgery, for specific, extremely rare, medical reasons on specific individuals. But to arbitrarily mutilate children, boys or girls, under the pretext that it is for their own good, shows an influence of cynicism and fanaticism.
    That is why there is no valid justification of the distinction made between male and female circumcision. Doctor Zwang goes further: "Female circumcision will never stop as long as male circumcision is going on. How do you expect to convince an African father to leave his daughter uncircumcised as long as you let him do it to his son?" There is no alternative but to condemn the attitude of international and non-governmental organizations which dissociate one type of circumcision from the other, giving legitimacy to male circumcision in the process.     Religion has been a means of justifying both male and female circumcision. It is time to expose the irrationality behind this thinking and reveal the harmful influence of some religious circles which are in favour of it or refuse to denounce it.

'CIRCUMCISION.  Allah, we are told, created man in his own image. He therefore must be responsible for the creation of the foreskin. A Muslim woman claimed that there are two reasons why Islam demands circumcision : 1 ) Health; the foreskin is dirty and 2 ) the koran says that circumcision is mandatory. If the foreskin is “dirty”, it means that its creator made a mistake. But Allah cannot make mistakes, so the foreskin cannot be dirty, so there can be no possible need to remove it. Circumcision is a blatant insult to God, implying that he is a bungling designer and that he is imperfect, hence NOT God. It is a Satanic suggestion. Historically, the Koran was entangled in a “Satanic Verses” scandal. By insulting the work of God, it proves that it is indeed the work of the Devil. Circumcision is how the Devil gets HIS brand on his Devil-worshipping followers. It’s the sign that they reject and scorn God’s work, his grand and perfect design of the human body. It’s an obscene mockery of Allah. Circumcision is the ultimate Satanic ritual, and stands as a symbolic representation of the horrific, evil episode when the Devil ordered Abraham to perform human sacrifice on his son, and Abraham agreed. Islam is PURE SATANISM, as of course is Judaism, which also demands circumcision.'  ~ Mike Hockney. (Hyperreason)
