San Francisco, CA - As you may have heard by now, San Francisco will be voting this November on whether or not to ban circumcision in the city.

Defenders of the measure say it’s all about “human rights” and “protecting babies” from unnecessary procedures.

But critics suspected there was something vaguely anti-Semitic about the whole proposal, since among Jews (and Muslims, as well) circumcising male babies is a religious duty, not just a mistaken medical procedure.

Ban proponents insisted their proposal had nothing to do with Jews — really, it’s all about the rights of children.

Well, any doubt that they were lying have now been dispelled, with the publication of new campaign literature for the upcoming circumcision ban. The campaign comic book, called Foreskin Man, after its baby-saving superhero, features a litany of evil Jews doing battle with blonde Nordic saviors.

Matthew Hess, president of the Male Genital Mutilation Bill group, which wants the US government to make circumcision punishable by jail time, has written two issues of the comic book.

The stories include characters with names like Monster Mohel and Dr Mutilator and show graphic scenes of terrified babies and brutal doctors covered in blood. The pro-circumcision characters, who are described as monsters by Foreskin Man, are depicted with peyot (sidelocks) and a tallit.

A woman is shown saying she wishes she could do more “to protect these innocent boys”. Then, later, a “peaceful and content” baby is shown rescued from the clutches of a grotesque doctor.

Mr Hess said the comic book was not intended to be antisemitic.

This looks like Nazi propaganda to me. These frauds care about circumcision but support abortion. Why do they not wait for the potentially aborted baby to choose if he wants an abortion and wait until he becomes 18?

I've seen the comic, and the portrayal of "Monster Mohel" is as grotesque as anything the Nazis ever published.

This article jumps to conclusions. While this particular man certainly has crossed the line into anti-Semitism, others in the anti-circumcision movement just happen to believe that circumcision is wrong. The local Jewish community strongly opposes this bill and is working hard for its defeat.

You don't have to be Jewish to figure out that this group is anti-semitic. They are also anti-moslem. But who cares? Anyone who is still living in San Francisco has been putting up with craziness for years. I recall clearly the Palestinian flags being waved out the windows in celebration on 9/11. I watched the city decide that US sailors and the US fleet was unwelcome. So now the Jew haters are marching. Don't worry, these people can't march in step. Unite calmly against them and argue reasonably before the mass of San Franciscans. All will be well.

I usually discount things like "They're just like the Nazis". Not this time. The Foreskin Man comic has the look, feel and content of a lot of early NSDAP propaganda. It is truly vile.

Where did poster 6 say anything about New York?

How does your response explain why a frum Jew would want to live in the capital of deviant behavior that San Francisco is?

There a plenty of place that have nicer weather than NYC that are not a gathering place of deviants. I am sure he would not expect frum people to live in the Village as well.

FYI the weather before The Generation of The Flood also had ideal weather, only it caused them to sin and commit abominations. Whoever lives there yet fears Heaven should leave as soon as soon as they possibly can without further ado.

It mimics very closely to that infamous Nazi rag, Der Sturmer. May they end up like the Nazis did!
