Rabbi David Wolpe offers this concise commentary on Germany's circumcision controversy. I particularly love his concluding thought:

In Germany there is a move
To outlaw circumcision.
I take to verse to summarize
This outrage with concision.

The WHO recommends
That no male miss a bris
The snip that saves, WHO raves
Does not diminish bliss.

Far from disfigurement, it is
A sacred, ancient rite.
A covenant crossing untold ages
Father Abraham's requite.

And yet, today, in Germany
--the ironies abound--
This Jewish practice meets a sanction
Where once indeed was found

Many who were circumcised
And versed in Jewish lore.
Perhaps the Germans have forgotten
For they are there no more.
