Our take: The Jewish publication, Commentary, offers an analysis of what's behind the circumcision ban in Germany, saying its proof of a rising tide of anti-Semitism in Europe:
After a Cologne court ruled that circumcision was illegal, there were those who argued that the decision would not impact Jewish life in Germany. We were cautioned not to jump to conclusions since it was just one court, whose jurisdiction was limited. The reaction of Germanys political leadership, particularly Chancellor Angela Merkel, was exemplary as the parliament voted to take up a bill legalizing the ritual in the fall. But, as todays news reveals, the optimists did not count on the willingness of many Germans to support the court.
