European Jews and Muslims Fight Circumcision Ban Together

FSWC Reports:


Just days before the Council of Europe is scheduled to hold hearings on a controversial resolution supporting banning male circumcision across the continent, a 10-person delegation of Muslim and Jewish clerics met with the organization’s secretary-general, Thorbjorn Jagland. 

The meeting was the first time that Muslim leaders had joined alongside Jewish clerics in lobbying in opposition to the proposed ban and was an initiative of the Gathering of European Muslim and Jewish Leaders (GEMJL), an affiliate of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding (FFEU), which represents imams and rabbis in 25 European countries.
