Jewish and Muslim protest organize online petitions

July 30

 

Three young Jewish and Muslims have addressed the German Federal government with an appeal relative to the proposal of circumcision ban. “Jews and Muslims should not be forced to leave a free democratic country in order to follow their religion”, it was said. Even secular Jews such as the lawyer Sergey Lagodinsky who comes from the former Soviet Union and works for the Boell foundation describe the debate led by some commentators and members of the Green party as “arrogant and short sighted”.
