Foreskin Man vs. The Thing

By now you have all seen the blatantly anti-Semitic Foreskin Man comic, I will save my thoughts on the San Francisco circumcision ban later – but lets just say that while I understand the motivations to ban circumcision (it’s not purely anti-Semitic – some people actually like to pull back a little hood sometimes), I feel it as an attack on religion and have to do my darnedest to try and use this blog to fight blatantly anti-Jewish measures. Jacob Fine sent me the following comic parody: Click here for the full version.

    Good thing Ben Grimm had his done while he was still pink and squishy. Imagine doing a brit millah on him now. Angle grinder and wet/dry diamond saw…

      lol Yeah. Good comeback comic too. That other one was so Jewbaiting.

      • A. Nuran June 9, 2011, 11:35 PM

        The original was worthy of The National Vanguard or early 1930s German propaganda.

          And yet the REAL antisemites – the KKK and the American Nazi Party – are NOT against circumcision. Foreskin Man #1 featured “Dr Mutilator” who was much more monstrous that Monster Mohel. Could it be that this is really about cutting babies’ genitals, regardless of their parents’ religion?

          • OfftheDwannaB June 10, 2011, 3:35 PM

            No it cant, not after “Nothing excites Monster Mohel more than cutting into the penile flesh of an 8 day old infant” That and his armed henchmen? Yes whomever printed that rag removed the thin veil covering the antisemitic agenda behind the “intactivists”
            It was partially right about one thing though “Intactivists have been pressuring monster mohel to retire, but that will never happen. They will have to pry the scissors from his cold dead hands” Partially, becuase it isnt just monster mohel who wont abandon the mitzva but all orthodox jews, and many non-orthodox jews as well. We’d travel out of the city, risk imprisonment and pay fines to preserve our sacred tradition (not that it will pass anyway). Plenty evil scum have arisen with the same vile agenda over the centuries we have outlasted them all, and will outlast you as well.
            Good riddance

    San Francisco: Where Jews will celebrate a woman’s right to terminate a fetus, but they don’t want you to touch his little shemckle, cuz that might hurt him a bit. Next, we’ll have Mohels trying to figure out how to do a bris in utero — or better yet, to shove it back in on day 8 to do it b’zman. After all, as long as it’s on the inside, cutting him up is OK according to their logic.

    The Catholics came up with the baptismal syringe — maybe they are on to something.

  • Anonymous June 10, 2011, 12:24 AM

          Mr./Ms. Anonymous, I think you need a quick review of your halacha: http://www.aish.com/ci/sam/48954946.html?mobile=yes&c=y

          Of course if you’re a member of one of the more “progressive” streams of Judaism who considers halacha to be non-binding, then do feel free to concoct your own rules. Just remember that the Nazis and their heirs don’t know and don’t care about our doctrinal differences. They’re as happy to do away with a Jew eating a ham & cheese sandwich as one who is fully frum. The creators of “Foreskin Man” are blatantly anti-semetic, go read it yourself and see what I mean: http://foreskinman.com/ If you’re feeling up to it maybe you could ask why they haven’t done a Moslem installment of their rag too?

    • Dave June 10, 2011, 7:20 AM

      It’s not the job of Judaism to “evolve” or adopt to the modern world. it’s the job of Jews to adopt the modern world to Judaism.

      I don’t care if non-Jews get circumcised or not. One huge spiritual benefit of Brit Milah is setting Jews apart of non-Jews in a material way, as kashrut and shabbos observance do.

      • Hugh7 June 10, 2011, 3:17 PM

        “it’s the job of Jews to ad[a]pt the modern world to Judaism.”
        Um, the modern world might have something to say about that.

        When 97% of infant circumcision in the US, how does Brit Milah “set Jews apart of non-Jews in a material way”? And people choose to observe kashrut and shabbos themselves, not impose them on other people.

        • John June 11, 2011, 7:04 PM

          what does the modern world have to say about it? (not that it would change anything, but im curious)

          You say “And people choose to observe kashrut and shabbos themselves, not impose them on other people.” Yes we do, we impose them on our children. Let me guess thats your next battle uprooting kashrus, and shabbos. You can write a rag featuring “pig man” and how he forces little jewish kids who are deprived of delicous and nutricous pork to sample some.

          • Hugh7 July 4, 2011, 6:33 PM

            Well you guess wrong. In fact the absudity of your analogy shows up the fallacy of your – and the whole “all intactivists are anti-semitic” – thinking.

            “Yes we do impose them on our children” but then your children grow up and choose for themselves whether to go on observing them, and many choose not to, but that’s neither here nor there, the point is, they can choose. They can’t choose to become intact.

            And your use of “you” to lump us all in together as monolithic and single-minded is illogical in the same way as generalisations about all Jews.

        • Dave June 11, 2011, 8:15 PM

          “it’s the job of Jews to ad[a]pt the modern world to Judaism.” i.e. to use those parts of the modern world which suit Judaism, such as using medical technology to save life in accordance with Torah. How you infer forcing Yiddishkeit on the the non-Jewish world, I have no idea.

          That so many non-Jews imitate Jews on circumcision and other aspects of Jewish law (Christianity is descended from Judaism, no?) is only testimony to the power of the relationship of G-d to the Jews. It is the *obligation* of circumcision that sets the Jews apart, to clarify my previous comment.

          • Hugh7 July 4, 2011, 6:37 PM

            ““it’s the job of Jews to ad[a]pt the modern world to Judaism.” i.e. to use those parts of the modern world which suit Judaism, such as using medical technology to save life in accordance with Torah.”
            Thanks for the clarification.
            “How you infer forcing Yiddishkeit on the the non-Jewish world, I have no idea.”
            Well I was wondering what you had in mind for us, before I took it any further, but that was certainly one reading of what you wrote. (I live in a county that is constantly having USAishkeit imposed on it, so it’s a familiar feeling.)

            • Dave July 4, 2011, 6:48 PM

              What is USAishkeit? Is it lessons in US Civics to which you object (noting the possible irony of your posting about “USAishket” on July 4) . Or does it have something to do with Aish HaTorah?

              If the former, then you are certainly welcome to live in another county or country if the local form of patriotism is not to your liking…

        • Dave October 2, 2011, 2:16 AM

          It’s a shame you can only see things through your lens of bias and can’t read anything the slightest bit non-literal. What a Jew should do is adapt things like science, medicine, etc. to fit within Jewish law. Non-Jews are not affected by Jews using modern invention and modernity within Jewish law.

      • Annexian July 24, 2011, 4:40 PM

        And, how, say are you going to go about this? A global network of Jews modifying banking, the media, government? Perhaps you put the leadership in your ELDERS and then publish a secret document that’s called your “PROTOCOLS” and it’d be a real gas if it got out…?

        Lordy, what Chutzpah… (audacity for good or bad, right)…


        Photographed the website in case you edit it out and might ref this to Stormfront… Really, your side loves to try to use ANY Anti-Semitic remark/person/comparison to discredit anything you don’t like… Fair’s fair to ref essentially “Proof” of some truth to the “Protocols”, no?

It’s currently responsible for epidemics of whooping cough and measles in the US and Europe and polio in Afghanistan and West Africa. There’s blood on its hands – about 80,000 preventable diseases and 800 deaths just in the US since 2007.

  • Bianca June 10, 2011, 4:27 AM

    Yeah thats awesome, slap a swastika onto FM. Nothing is more antisemitic then a Jewish mother asking FM to take her son to her friend.

    • Elias Friedman June 10, 2011, 10:15 AM

      I don’t think the mother is Jewish. Her unmarried sister’s surname, and presumably her maiden name, is “Redstone”. Of course that’s hardly definitive, especially in light of the fact that the names of the ostensibly Jewish characters (Jethro, Jorah, & Yerik) are laughably unlikely.

      So this bris was likely to be Milah l’shem giur- for the purpose of conversion, thus all the more necessary in the father’s eyes.

      So, disregarding the blatantly anti-semitic plotline of armed Jewish goons breaking in and making a bris by force, what we have here is a domestic dispute within a mixed marriage- and actually a VERY likely one at that! (All the more reason not to marry non-Jews!) Forcibly taking the child from his father, even at the mother’s supposed request, is kidnapping- plain and simple. Kidnapping a child of a Jewish parent so as to raise him as a gentile is also a recurring anti-semitic assault through history, yet another reason this comic is incredibly offensive.

      • A. Nuran June 10, 2011, 1:15 PM

        It’s one which mixed couples have dealt with for a very long time. They don’t always do it perfectly, but they tend to come to solutions they can both live with for the sake of their relationship and children.

        If someone is calling in the armed wing of the Mohel Majority to do a bris by force we’ve left Realville and have entered Bad Acid Trip Burg.

    Gimme a break, it’s trying to drive a point across, namely that circumcision is sexual, mental and physical abuse of a helpless infant.

    Nobody has the right to put their grubby hands on an infant’s shlong (the mohel rubs it to erection in order to be able to cut the prepuce off, how do you feel about that?). I dont care what some imaginary guy in the sky told you.

    To top it off with some “delicious metzizta bepeh”…I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry at this horrific, perverted minhag.

        Their names are Sarah and Miah. They’re clearly meant to be Jewish. A useful commentary is here. http://joseph4gi.blogspot.com/2011/06/anti-semite-card-no-longer-washes.html

        • John June 12, 2011, 6:11 AM

          a more useful commentary can be found at foreskinman website. More direct and to the point. Monster mohel and his armed henchmen speak for themselves and of course for their authors and supporters.

      • MM June 10, 2011, 5:16 PM

        Um, Elias, you stated that you didn’t think the mother was Jewish, citing as (sole) evidence that you think her maiden name might be Redstone. Then you said that isn’t definitive specifically because the other names used in the comic do not strike you as Jewish (btw there are Jews with the Hebrew form of Jethro as their name). I pointed out that Redstone IS a Jewish name, its most well known bearer (at least to me) being Sumner Redstone who is Jewish. Redstone is a translation of Rothstein. Therefore there is no evidence at all in the comic for your “thought” that the mother isn’t Jewish. The fact that the other names don’t strike you as likely to belong to Jews is irrelevant.

        Besides which, what’s a Jewish name anyway? Cohen (and its derivatives is Jewish (unless, of course, it’s former senator William Cohen of Maine who isn’t Jewish). Levy (and its derivatives) is also Jewish. The third most common Jewish surname is Miller. How “Jewish” is that? My relatively uncommon maiden name is found among Jews, but there’s also a whole bunch of German Lutherans in Iowa who have the same name. My mother’s maiden name which she inherited from her Chasidic father was Becker–and Germany and Scandinavia are heavily populated by non-Jewish Beckers. Go figure! In any case, since we are matrilineal, not patrilineal (pace the Reform Movement), our surnames can be pretty much anything. Further since European Jews did not have surnames (but rather true patronyms) until forced to by the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1798, with Czarist Russia following suit shortly thereafter, Ashkenazic Jews have not historically been very attached to their surnames, frequently changing them, shortening them, translating them, etc. These changes happened in the Diaspora, but also very commonly among those who made aliya.

        Bottom line: you can’t tell who is and who isn’t a Jew by surname, just as you can’t tell by nose, skin tone, etc. I myself have the tiniest straightest nose on the planet–when I was a child I used to pull on it, hoping it would grow long and hooked like all the other noses in my family–and the fairest skin short of an albino. I have been taken for everything from Irish, Dutch and Austrian to Estonian (whatever Estonians are supposed to look like), yet I am 100% Ashkenazic Jew (as far back as I know of) and a Bas Kohen.

  • Conservative Scifi June 10, 2011, 11:57 AM

    You can still find the comic on it’s own website. It is about the most offensive piece of garbage I’ve seen in a long while. The idea of a bris by force is absurd. In fact, if the mother refused to allow it, I wonder if a mohel would take the legal risk on only the father’s say so. The gun toting associates, the use of a scissors!!! for the cut, all make this absurd. I have two sons, both teens, who were circumsized by two different mohels. One mohel did it the “American” medical way, which took maybe 90 seconds but did cause my son to cry a little, until we could hold him. He may have cried as much as 3 minutes, which represents much less crying time than when we tried to get him to sleep alone in his crib. For my younger son, we got a more traditional mohel, who finished in maybe 15-30 seconds, and my younger son didn’t actually even cry (though he’s always been a little tougher than his older brother). The idea that circumcision causes any lasting pain to a person is laughable.

    • Hugh7 June 10, 2011, 3:35 PM

      “The idea of a bris by force is absurd.”
      Except of course that from the point of view of the baby, and the man he becomes, they’re all by force. (I know what you’re going to say next, but baptism wipes off.)

      “The idea that circumcision causes any lasting pain to a person is laughable.”
      Taddio et al (Lancet. 1997;349:599-603) found that circumcised babies react differently to the pain of vaccination, months later.

      • Synapse June 11, 2011, 4:16 PM

        You do of course realize that, aside from the correlation and causation of that study being entirely questionable, most studies on circumcision do not distinguish between different kinds of circumcision. The pain levels between the common medical clamp and the traditional method are easily worlds apart (dull clamp smashing your groins or razor sharp knife you wouldn’t notice if you cut yourself).

    whoever is arguing that the mother was jewish as well is deluding themselves. the comic gives everyone coloured hair and scantily clad bright clothing except for jews, which they give dark clothing and black hair, covered in shadow. the girl near the beginning says about the father “between you and me, jethro gives me the creeps. i tried to talk sarah out of marrying him”.

    it also bastardizes the entire brit milah process and calls the prayer babbling.

    Speaking as an “intactivist”, I was upset that Hess used such inflammatory images. I felt that he undermined my good efforts to save babies from the horror of forced genital cutting. With that being said, I do NOT appreciate being lumped w/ him & slandered as an anti-semite because I choose to protect babies from forced genital cutting. I believe that this type of character assassination (against individual intactivists) is employed to silence critics of circumcision. I find it just as shameful & offensive as the comic.

    The comic parody, Smegna Man Gets Circumcised, (published at Smegmaman.com) is a lot funnier; has a great plot; and passes along sound information about the medical and cosmetic benefits of the procedure– and, in the end, the villains meet a very appropriate end.

    Hey, if u wanna have your genitals chopped off, do it when your 18 and can make a legal decision about it. The next thing you know, we will have Muslims moms complaining they can’t get their daughters Sunat anymore in the U.S., and that process removes a lot less tissue from girls private parts than boy- cutting does. The bottom line is, if someone cries anti-semite, all they are doing is deflecting attention from the real issue, which is that genital cutting is violent, disfiguring, and evil done on an unwilling victim. (and I am a Jewish mom but I respect my children)

    • Dave October 2, 2011, 2:32 AM

      Betty, are you a JINO (Jew In Name Only)? Because that’s how I interpret your post. I’ll take your word that you are a Jew and not just lying about it to make an anti-religious post. Torah MiSinai (Torah from G-d given at Mt. Sinai) is the basis for all Judaism, including the mitzvot including brit milah (covenant of circumcision) . If a Jew does not believe in that, does not strive to practice the related mitzvot, then all Judaism (and all everything descended from it, Christianity, Islam, and the moral basis for all Western civil law) is arbitrary, transitory, and ultimately meaningless. If you don’t want to practice Judaism, if you don’t want your son to bear the first distinction of makes a Jew different, then that’s your business, but don’t stop Jews who actually practice Judaism. And if your uncut son wants to do it at 18, to actually be part of the Jewish nation, to marry a practicing Jewish woman, then he’ll have a heck of a lot more pain than will an 8-day old infant.

    Why don’t you take a hot iron and brand the Star of David onto his little buttocks instead? At least he wont suffer from reduced sexual sensitivity in the long run and you will a ALL (girls too) have matching buttocks! What’s good for the goose….

    Kathleen, do you realize how offensive your attempt at sarcasm was? Is your feeble mind aware that the Nazis branded Jews with tattooed numbers and made them were Stars of David on their clothing? And thank you for your concern in the area of sexual sensitivity, but neither my fellow Jewish guy friends nor I complain about inadequate sexual sensitivity. If you want proof, I can set you up on a tefillin date with a Jewish guy.

    circumcision IS BRANDING!!! I FIND IT TO BE EXTREMELY OFFENSIVE TO THE HUMAN RACE AS IT VIOLATES THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE PERSON BEING BRANDED!!! (Note: I am actually defending your child’s human rights here, since you refuse too!) I simply suggested that a modified (BUTT) branding might be less severe than amputating part of someone else’s erogenous territory!

    ?”(Circumcision) qualifies as a “Crime Against Humanity” according to the standards established at Nuremburg. There is no difference between forcefully taking the gold from someone’s teeth, or stealing an organ or tissue without their consent.” -Dr. Paul Tinari

      P.S. and thanks for not rebutting my assertion that your post is highly offensive.

      And I would appreciate your keeping your nose out of my crotch and your foul mouth away from my penis.

      You are offensive to the human race. Thank you for doing your part to prove godwins law correct, and for proving how silly “intactivists” are. How does it feel knowing you will never win this battle. Many have tried to ban milah in the past all have failed you and your ilk will be confined to the dustbins of history with rest of them, as the Jewish people live on proudly continuing our religion, you so desperatly want to see banned

  • Dave October 5, 2011, 8:59 PM

    Kathleen, circumcision is NOT branding. It is done as a routine elective cosmetic procedure on people who are neither Jewish nor Muslim. An argument can be made that it is not medically necessary, but is religiously mandated.

    Where do you get off presuming to defend my child from what YOU consider violation of his human rights? Who made you the arbiter of what are human rights? And what of the human right to worship and obey a god of one’s choosing? Is your last name Orwell? Because your statist propaganda smacks of an Orwellian nightmare.

    In the case of Jewish ritual, circumcision is a COMMANDMENT from G-d. Maybe you don’t believe, but Jews do. You might be an atheist, doubter, or anti-religious nut, but neither you nor the state have the right to prohibit religious rituals thousands of years old, medically inconsequential, and essential to the practice of Judaism. Don’t have your kids circumcised if you prefer. Just don’t interfere with my relationship with G-d or that of any Jewish boy or his parents.

    As far as Dr. Tinari is concerned, simply citing a “Dr.” without his credentials is childish, mendacious, and unpersuasive; you think about an inch deep. Or perhaps only a foreskin deep. Tinari is not an unbiased source of objective data on anything in medicine or law. His doctorate is in engineering and he has certainly been emotionally traumatized by his having been circumcised at age 8 by priests at a boarding school who wanted him to stop masturbating, making his opinion highly suspect at best.

    YES, it’s too late for *your* penis, and I am sincerely sorry about that, but I will NOT BE TOLD TO SIT DOWN AND BE QUIET WHEN I SEE INJUSTICE!!!!! Perhaps you had better write a letter to your mohel—because your anger is really misplaced. He’s the one that took a knife and then his mouth, to your tender, beautiful, perfect body! Shea has got thee right idea! Good for him too! Here is HIS letter to HIS mohel:

      Lord save us from Kathleen’s notions of justice and injustice.

      She is so blinded by her fulmination from her misplaced sense justice that i suspect she has classic female penis-envy of men, causing her hyperleftist feminazi dictatorial inclinations. She should go watch Schindlers List for a real idea of injustice instead of reading anti-Semitic comics about Monster Mohel.

      • Dave October 6, 2011, 4:40 AM

        Rob, you hit this one on the head. I suspect she’s a flaming liberal who has proven here that when you confront a liberal with facts and logic, they argue emotion. She cryies “INJUSTICE, INJUSTICE!!!” but doesn’t refute any assertions that I make about her arguments, evidence, experts, etc.

        And she is so blinded by emotion that she can’t even see that my “keep your nose out of my crotch” was was a simple metaphor for keeping her nose out of my business, and my “keep your foul mouth away from my penis” was metaphorical commentary about her offensive anti-semitic comment about branding a Star of David on a baby’s buttocks.

  • Kathleen October 6, 2011, 1:55 PM

    My ‘notion of justice’ is simple and it’s based on the Golden Rule. And nope, I don’t envy your malehood, I pity you….

    ‘Penis envy’, ‘anti semitism’….it’s ALL deflection….so that you don’t have to discuss your masculine cruelty towards women (myself included) and (male) children.

    You are a chauvinist pig! Maybe your submissive, subservient wife, tolerates your woman bashing, but I will not subject myself to it anymore! I will continue to speak out against forced genital cutting, on behalf of all male and female children, in spite of your attempt to assassinate my character!

    You may have the last word, but i will NOT be reading it…

    anyone who mutilates children’s bodies should be hated. If calling out jews for doing unnecessary cosmetic surgery on children make me an anti-Semite, then so be it.
