Is it racist to think this is gross? The answer, of course, is “of course.”
We have hordes of disgusting, evil desert people coming against us. And though two groups of these desert people claim to hate one another, it seems that they have no troubles allying together against us when it comes to defending their “right” to do things like mutilate the genitals of infants and torture animals – in our countries.
A spokesman for Europe’s major intergovernmental agency assured Jews and Muslims in Amsterdam that attempts to limit religious customs like kosher slaughter and circumcision are forms of “intolerance and discrimination.”
Ilan Cohn of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, or OSCE, made the assertion at the end of a two-day roundtable meeting on nonmedical circumcision of minors, ritual slaughter of animals and other religious customs that it organized in the Dutch capital this week for European Jews, Muslims and anti-racism activists.
“Anti-racist” is a codeword for “pro-genital mutilation and pro-animal torture.”
Dozens of Jewish and Muslim community leaders, as well as anti-racism activists, attended the event Tuesday and Wednesday — one of the largest Jewish-Muslim joint gatherings ever held on these issues in Europe.
“Diverse communities must join together in the face of intolerance and discrimination,” Cohn, a project manager at the OSCE’s Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, said in a statement about the meeting.
Among the participants were Rabbi Andrew Baker, the personal representative of the OSCE chairperson-in-office on combating anti-Semitism; Bülent Şenay, his counterpart at the OSCE for combating intolerance and discrimination against Muslims, and Joel Rubinfeld, the president of the Belgian League Against Anti-Semitism, or LBCA.
Cohn’s office said the summit provided an “opportunity for Jewish and Muslim community leaders to learn how to build sustainable national advocacy coalitions that promote tolerance and non-discrimination.”
The event included work sessions that featured case studies and exchange of information on the status of religious freedoms in European countries and initiatives to limit them.
In recent years, a growing number of European governments and parliaments have introduced legislation and regulations limiting religious customs, and particularly non-medical circumcision and ritual slaughter of animals, which are performed by Muslims and Jews.
In 2012, a court in Germany ruled that non-medical circumcision of boys younger than 18 constituted a violation of their rights, triggering several bans, which were ultimately lifted.
This year, all three regions of Belgium introduced regulations banning various techniques of ritual slaughter of animals performed by Jews and Muslims.
Such bans are supported by liberals who say the practices are cruel, as well as by nationalists who view them as a foreign import to predominantly-Christian societies.
You have to wonder what kinds of people you are dealing with that want to mutilate the genitals of babies and torture animals and then flip out and accuse you of hatred for the color of the skin as soon as you’re like “whoa whoa whoa, let’s dial this back a notch here shall we?”
Probably, if you’ve got problems with such people, they are problems that go beyond the color of their skin. Especially since we have the issue that most Jews in Europe have pale skin.
If you think this is gross, it means you hate the color of the skin… or perhaps you hate the length of the nose… whatever. You have some aesthetic preference which leads you to the emotion of hate.
Among other things, we need a new and more reasonable definition of “racism.”
