SCHMUCK That Needs to Be Cut: Russell Crowe Attacks Jewish Circumcision – Hollywood “Tolerance”

By Debbie Schlussel

Mazel Tov! Mel Gibson now has a twin.

Hey, Anti-Semites AND NOCIRC Both Just Found a New Spokesmodel Schlub

I used to like Russell Crowe as an actor, despite his behavior as a “person,” including tirades at New York hotels, violently using telephones to attack poor working-class stiff hotel employees and engaging in other such acts of class and dignity.  But no more.  This barbarian, who physically beat a hotel clerk with a telephone receiver as a weapon just ‘cuz he felt like it, now has the chutzpah to attack Jews as barbaric for circumcising their male babies. His attack on Jewish circumcision is not about health or humanity.  It’s about Russell Crowe’s formerly latent anti-Semitism now rearing its uncircumcised, impotent head via his tweets on Twitter.

Circumcision is a covenant with G-d that the Jewish people have had for thousands of years, and it’s helped us survive and continue to exist as a people.  There is a special ceremony and blessings are made.  Clearly, it works.  It’s no coincidence that those without circumcisions are at far greater risk for AIDS and several cancers, including penile cancer.  It’s an interesting irony that Crowe’s male children will now be at higher risk for these maladies, while he concentrates on attacking the “evil” JOOOOOOOS. BTW, says a lot about the IQ of Crowe’s fans that they ask him, a total stranger, whether or not to circumcise their own children. Um, yeah, that’s who you ask about your child’s health, Dr. Russell M. Crowe, endowed with a medical degree from the University of Smack the Phone at Your Head “F-ck Science” Medical School. Only a moron would ask this proud high school grad for advice. In my book, that’s an automatic disqualifier from parenthood.

The Oscar-winning actor labelled the practice “barbaric and stupid” during a row with his Twitter followers, telling them to “f— off” if they disagreed with him.

The 47-year-old engaged in an angry exchange with one follower, whom he branded a “moron”, before imploring Jewish people to “stop cutting your babies”.

Hmmm . . . I would like to implore people named Russell Crowe to “stop attacking your hotel clerks with telephones,” which makes a lot more sense.

The debate followed a question by one of his fans called @picknic11 who asked him: “My son is due soon. Do you think I should get him circumstanced? [sic]”

Crowe, who hit the headlines in 2005 when he was charged with second-degree assault in New York after throwing a telephone at a hotel employee, tweeted: “Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect.”

He added: “Many Jewish friends, I love my Jewish friends, I love the apples and the honey and the funny little hats but stop cutting yr babies.

Ah, he’s not anti-Semitic. We know that because he loves “the funny little hats.” Thanks, Mel . . . er, Russell. He just loves the funny little hat on his penis–and the cancer and AIDS it could bring–soooo much more.

“I will always stand for the perfection of babies, I will always believe in God, not man’s interpretation of what God requires.

“Last of it, if u feel it is yr right 2 cut things off yr babies please unfollow and f— off, I’ll take attentive parenting over barbarism.”

The outburst provoked dozens of responses from his followers. One said: “There’s actually a scientific reason for [circumcision], u should google it.”

Crowe replied: “My friend, “human” science has caused too much damage, don’t be a moron.”

Another follower told him: “I disagree on Circumcision , It’s more hygienic and nobody remembers it”, to which Crowe replied “Hygienic? Why don’t you sew up your a– then?” The follower then seemingly offered to fight Crowe if he was ever in Newfoundland.

Crowe also apparently likened circumcision to human sacrifice, when another follower asked: “You are comparing sexual mutilation w/ a jewish ceremonial act?!”

He replied: “Can you actually read the words you just typed ” a ceremonial act” , F— that. The Mayans had ceremonial acts too.”

Yup, Judaism is the same as being an ancient Mayan. You keep telling yourself that, Russell, while the Jewish morons in Hollywood continue to make an absolute dummy like you more millions than you could ever dream of. If every single Jewish, circumcised Hollywood exec and producer truly had some balls, this chump would never work in Hollywood again. Sadly, they don’t.

File under: “Mel Gibson Just Found a Quorum for the Aussie-Heritage Movie Star Division of the Klan.”

Reader Duane, who is not Jewish, is spot on:

His comments pretty much sums up liberals view of tolerance on opposing ideology : telling them to “f— off” & don’t like it then, “Bye,” if they disagreed with him. Typical liberal who is pro-abortion yet is suddenly concerned with people cutting babies? “Abortion should always be a woman’s choice, there is no benefit to ‘forced’ motherhood…you got it? Don’t like it? Then, bye & who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect.” So his big brain has decided that God is not alright with foreskin removal, but fine with terminating the babies life-kill it, but make sure not to damage it’s foreskin? The stupidity of these people is so blatant and yet idiot sycophants continue to hang on their every stupid word.

AMEN, Duane. Next time, I need a rabbi, it won’t be Russell Crowe. Somebody needs to tell that uncircumcised schmuck to butt the f–k out of our private lives, like a good liberal constantly claims to do, all while imposing big brother government upon us.

Oh, and one last fashion/health tip for Russell Crowe: Men look bad in turtlenecks. Swastikas and brown shirts aren’t flattering, either.

Actually, this is quite humorous. Crowe is too stupid to realize that he is simply carrying water for the gay mafia, who are primarily the ones against circumcision. (Better sensation, and all that.)

Shades of clueless idiots with their low-riding pants–emulating the style in prison that affords easy “rear entry.”

How richly ironic that a supposed Aussie macho man would be a tool of the faygelehs.

Red Ryder on June 10, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    May be he’s carrying their water for another reason. Highly Macho?

    Occam's Tool on June 13, 2011 at 3:28 pm

I absolutely do not understand the thinking behind anti-semitism.

There is nothing objectionable about the Hebrew people.

I thought we were supposed to be living in a “multi culture” society where everyone celebrates diversity.

ebayer on June 10, 2011 at 12:50 pm

I stood there at my son’s Brit. It was a link from all of my ancestors to my son and I was proud to be with him at that moment. My son is a happy healthy boy.

Now who is Russel Crow again? I’ve never heard of him. Is he some kind of expert on something?

I’m actually kidding about mr crow. To him I would simply say, “Excuse me. I need to get past you to move on with my life. You’re an actor? A while ago I chose not to ever buy a ticket or rent a movie you’re in. Not one dime from me to you, moron.”

Larry on June 10, 2011 at 1:00 pm

Mr. Crowe doesn’t realize the foreskin is used to make wallets. When you rub the wallets vigorously they then become suitcases! What’s wrong with that!

bobkat on June 10, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Russell Crowe is just like a circumcision…
“There’s no end to that pr!ck”

Tom on June 10, 2011 at 1:10 pm

Australian cheese-weener….

#1 Vato on June 10, 2011 at 1:12 pm

Now that the left is on the verge of officially turning against Jews – and this is one area that they can’t use “the Palestinians” as their excuse – I wonder evangelicals will be the next option for Abe Foxman and similar. (Somehow I seriously doubt it …)

Gerald on June 10, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Dear Russel Crowe, don’t take me wrong, I kinda like you, Gladiator is my favorite movie, but please understand you only sound cleaver when u are saying things from the Script.

Kesita on June 10, 2011 at 1:39 pm

I’ve wondered, can the actual procedure be performed by any rabbi, or do only specially trained rabbis perform it?

All I’ve heard about those who do perform the procedure, and retain the foreskins to make wallets with, is that they don’t accept payment for their services, BECAUSE THEY WORK FOR “TIPS”! yuk-yuk-yuk!

CornCoLeo on June 10, 2011 at 1:42 pm

Deb, do you know what they do with the leftover foreskin after circumcision?

They plant them in Australia, water them, and they grow into actors.

Jonathan E. Grant on June 10, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    haha. I’m catholic, circumcised as are both my kids, by the doctor when we were born. We are healthy and happy and nothing has happended thank you. It’s nothing barbaric and much more hygienic.

    Luis on June 11, 2011 at 5:35 pm

I’ve been told that a newborn’s blood clotting factor most often is very high precisely on the 8th day. I wonder how those ancient Jewish folks, without the benefit of modern biology courses, could know that doing circumcisions on the 8th day would be the exact best time? Oh, yeah, now I remember – they were told by Almighty G-d in the Scriptures to do them on the 8th day.

CornCoLeo on June 10, 2011 at 1:54 pm

I don’t see where he said anything antisemitic. He might be a hot-head and a moron, but there’s nothing antisemitic about what he said. People are allowed to be opposed to circumcision it’s just his opinion. Comparing him to Mel Gibson is outrageous.

Joey P on June 10, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    When he compares Jews to Mayans, a primitive people who practiced human sacrifice, yeah, that’s pretty anti-Semitic.

    Jonathan E. Grant on June 10, 2011 at 1:58 pm

      Yup. Jews have never practiced human sacrifice. Period.

      If you ask me why its anti-Semitism, you and Debbie can explain why they also oppose Schechita – Jewish kosher slaughtering. Its not coincidental.

      The reasons they give for opposing practices that happen to be Jewish are never the real reasons they oppose them.

      I like an honest opponent, even if he is anti-Semite. At least I can respect the integrity of his argument. What I can’t stand are the complete frauds who say their views have nothing to do with the Jews and Judaism.

      Yeah, sure. Facts are stubborn things!

      NormanF on June 10, 2011 at 2:58 pm

        Anti-circumsion crowd is as much about sex as it is about veiled anti-semitism. There’s this idea that cut men are missing out on something wonderful, they were “robbed” of extra sensation by their mean old parents subscribing to some “needless” procedure.

        Should we lament the loss of our umbilical cords, too? Maybe they do hymen restoration surgery on women, as well.

        Crow is a washed up actor. His career peaked in 2001. He was supposed to the big star, then descended into b-movie territory. Remember that ROBIN HOOD movie he made? No one else does, either.

        As the Crowe Lies on June 10, 2011 at 8:59 pm

          This article is filled with ignorance. Yes even an actor can say things that are questionable but it has nothing to do with the fact that he is not circumcised. Circumcision is barbaric, regardless of who is doing it. To cut on the sensitive genitals of babies is horrific, especially when it is done so routinely in the U.S. The Jewish people have a difficult path where genital cutting is concerned, but there are quite a few organizations that are working hard to do away with circumcision such as JewsAgainst Circumcision and Beyond the Bris. Our country is so appalled by Female genital cutting and it’s even illegal here, but genital cutting on boys goes on every day. There is serious double standard going on here. Circumcision is a permanent body alteration that a baby is not able to consent to and that is fundamentally wrong on all counts. The procedure is painful and traumatic. Even if babies heal from it and seem just fine, does’t mean they are or will be as an adult. Many adult men are not happy with the result and go to great lengths to restore the part of their body that was taken from them, but they can never get it back. Foreskin is a natural, normal part of the male anatomy and anyone who doesn’t think so is sorely mistaken. Those who are fighting to educate people about circumcision are not crazy, they are about genital integrity for all people, male and female. If you give it some thought, it’s not hard to understand that cutting a part off of a normal healthy baby is not a very nice way to welcome an infant into the world, and then he has a scar to show for it for the rest of his life. His body……His choice, and it has nothing to do with Russell Crowe.

          Mary Lanser on February 22, 2012 at 5:21 am

      Russell is a swine. I’m Jewish, and my two adopted kids are Mayans. The Mayans contributed a hell of a lot more to civilization than the Aussies. We won’t compare the Jews and the Aussies—10 Nobel Prizes won by Aussies, nine in science. We know how many Jewish Nobel Prizes have been awarded. It’s the Harlem Globetrotters playing the Washington Generals—the latter are the Ozzies.

      Ozzie population—21 million.

      Occam's Tool on June 13, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    Ask yourself if the liberal types would still oppose circumcision if they knew Islam practices it.

    They claim to oppose it for health reasons but its pure hokum. Its always about the Jews.

    It it was about Islam, betcha we wouldn’t see these anti-circumcision initiatives circulating in SF or anywhere.

    Like I said last week, a comic book came out from the SF proponents with lurid imagery right out of Der Sturmer.

    I can tell when they’re garden variety anti-Semites. I don’t need Debbie to tell me who they are. They do a good job of revealing themselves to the world.

    NormanF on June 10, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    There is something very ominous about this movement to outlaw circumcision. The health factor is only a secondary factor if a factor at all. Looked at closely what you see is a movement that, in effect, duplicates the past history and altogether infamous ambitions of many European countries and would make the United States also clean of Jews. Circumcision is the most fundamental commitment of a Jew to his heritage. Remove circumcision from Jewish ritual and you remove Jews from this earth. It’s as simple as that – so apart from all the supercilious pronouncements about heinous cruelty to babies, what defines the mindset of these terrible people is, in effect, nothing less than clearing the US from its Jewish population.

    Arn on June 12, 2011 at 11:56 am

Comparing Judaism to Mayan beliefs is still not anti-semitic. Disliking Judaism or specific Jewish beliefs also isn’t anti-semitic. Prejudice against Jewish people is. And I don’t see that in his comments.

Joey P on June 10, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    Do you think Crowe would say that about Muslims?

    If you do, then you’re a moron.

    NormanF on June 10, 2011 at 2:53 pm

Debbie this was an anti-Semitic outburst as RC chose to single out Jews, as if we were the main culprits in some sex mutilation ring. It’s telling that his apology fails to apologize to the only group he attacked and a real shanda that Eli Roth is covering for him. I hope you should soon have twin boys and send him a 3D video tweet of the Bris. Also Lauren Spierer is still missing and a few Jewish men seem to be persons of interest. B’H it’s not how it looks.

A1 on June 10, 2011 at 2:27 pm

    Jews who enable anti-Semites or who can’t stand up to Muslims at the Kotel, I don’t have respect for them.

    We live in a time when Jews seem to constantly apologize for everything about them. Debbie is among the few Jews who says there is nothing wrong with us, we’re alright!

    Proud Jews will always have my respect!

    NormanF on June 10, 2011 at 3:11 pm

When a Jewish Day school (the library) in Montreal was firebombed by a Muslim a few years ago, Russel Crowe made a generous donation to the school after finding out about the firebombing. I think he had been in town filming. I don’t think an anti-semite would do that.

Karen on June 10, 2011 at 2:30 pm

    He did a decent thing in Montreal. But times change and so do our views of people.

    If its a matter of disagreement about circumcision, Debbie wouldn’t have written this post. Reasonable people can disagree about it.

    But attacking Jews is crossing the line. Debbie made the right call here and it bears repeating: the truth needs no defense.

    NormanF on June 10, 2011 at 3:03 pm

Many Christians are also circumcised.

Dr Dale on June 10, 2011 at 2:37 pm

Debbie, the San Francisco promoters of an anti-circumcision initiative have been revealed to be anti-Semites.

The practice has nothing to do with Jews forcing their beliefs on others.

Cuz it seems to me its the other way around. Russell Crowe should bug off! Its none of his business what other people do to their children.

But we all know with these types, tolerance and mutual respect is a one street. What they really want to do is ban Judaism but there is the little matter of the Constitution standing in their way.

Oh and Muslims also circumcise and I don’t see them getting all ruffled up about it!

NormanF on June 10, 2011 at 2:41 pm

why not ask crowe
if it tastes better with
the foreskin on

prestigio on June 10, 2011 at 3:05 pm

Banning circumcision is not a new concept, it is what societies have historically done when they want to prevent Jews from practicing their religion. It’s about as anti-semitic as you can get.

And mark my words, it is only one of the first steps. Anti-semitism is getting more and more acceptable in average society everyday. This is how it started in Germany too, and look where it ended.

Russel Crowe is not only a total schmuck, he has responsibility as an actor because of the influence he has on people. Him, Mel Gibson and their anti-semitic actor friends could play a big role in the next holocaust if there is one. G-d forbid, I hope there is not. If there is, I wonder if they will be able to sleep at night knowing what they did. I hope not.

Zsuzsi on June 10, 2011 at 3:31 pm

Another Hollywood scumbag who deserves the Casino Royale treatment (ball whipping until the message takes).

Occam's Tool on June 10, 2011 at 3:56 pm

NormanF:

This is tough. A lot of folks getting behind this circumcision ban idea aren’t doing it because of conscious, overt anti-Semitism. Instead, they are liberals who are simply following the left on this issue like they do on every other issue. “Leading liberal scholars” have equated it to female genital mutilation, “leading secularists” have called it an ancient religious ritual that has no place in modern society, others frame it as a personal freedom issue, and others still (and not just the homosexuals) have made it into a sexual liberation battle. Basically, a main motivation for being a liberal is having a cause, and anti-circumcision is just the latest cause to get behind.

So the real story here is the change on the left itself. In the past, the left wouldn’t have gone after Jewish interests like this because A) Jews were so prominently in their coalition so it was against their political interests even if it was in their ideological interests and B) Jews were considered an oppressed religious ethnic minority, so protecting and advancing their religious interests was a core liberal action point. Now, it appears, things have changed. The liberal activists no longer care so much about preserving their political alliance with Jews, and now gay rights activists and MUSLIMS are far more prominent in current liberal thinking about which “oppressed” group needs their attention more.

So while it is fun to call Russell Crowe an anti-Semite and all (and I do agree that he did make anti-Semitic statements in Debbie’s quotes, which were listed IN CONTEXT) the bigger story is that 20, 15, 10 or maybe even 5 years ago Crowe would have never made those statements because the anti-circumcision movement to provide the context would have never existed. The left would have said “we can’t ban circumcision because it will cause great offense to Jews, harm Jewish interests and cause us to be perceived as anti-Semitic.” Now, the left plainly, openly has stated that they don’t care about Jewish feelings or the need/desire of Jews to practice their religion as they see fit, and – as Crowe did in his remarks – are perfectly fine in telling Jews to be quiet and get with the program.

That’s the real story: that the left in America and the west no longer cares about preserving their coalition with liberal Jews, and that it is almost certainly in no small part because they now find working with the Muslims to be more emotionally stimulating. The issue now is how long it is going to take western liberal Jews to face up to this new reality (presently they are still in denial) and seeing how they respond. That was what I meant with my ADL snippet above.

Gerald on June 10, 2011 at 4:07 pm

There will always be idiots like Crowe and Gibson, who will use any excuse to spew their hatred of the Jews. Circumcision has been used for many years, not only by the Jews for whom it is a sacred rite, but by others who use it for health reasons. There are new parents who have no idea they have to pull back that foreskin to clean the baby’s penis thoroughly: so the little guy get badly infected!With circumcision, the parent is more comfortable with cleaning the child, and no infection occurs. The operation is minor, takes very little time, and the child never recalls it! Leave the Jews alone, and any one who has their baby circumcised. It is no one else’s business!

Christian Granny on June 10, 2011 at 4:34 pm

For those who do not know, Islam does practice circumcision. Why didn’t Crowe single out Islam?

Jonathan E. Grant on June 10, 2011 at 4:44 pm

    Jon, exactly what I said.

    Plus, if it has nothing to do with anti-Semitism, why single out the Jews? Muslims also practice circumcision, which they took from Judaism when Mohammed still tried to win the Jews over.

    NormanF on June 10, 2011 at 6:27 pm

The only relevant question is if Russel Crowe is against circumcision out of some secret hatred of Jews. And to me as a Jew who is very familiar with all the codewords and covert antisemitism I just don’t see it. So he is entitled to hate circumcision itself and that does not make him an antisemite. I love that Debbie is a proud Jew and stands up for America and Jewish people so much, but I honestly think she is wrong here and this post is counterproductive. You could have made this post and defended circumcision without accusing Crowe of antisemitism or comparing him to Mel Gibson. Gibson is a rabid antisemite and you are just minimizing that by equating him with Crowe.

Joey P on June 10, 2011 at 4:52 pm

“For those who do not know, Islam does practice circumcision. Why didn’t Crowe single out Islam?”

Because it’s not only his foreskin he wants to keep, but also his head.

Zoolook on June 10, 2011 at 5:11 pm

I don’t think that he is as much an anti-semite as he is an empty-headed progressive parrot repeating some liberal position he heard during a cocktail party in Hollywood.

Like so many egomaniac actors who have played heroic parts, he thinks he actually thought up the words that were coming out of his mouth. I don’t get the idea that he is bright enough to really understand what he is espousing.

fred on June 10, 2011 at 5:18 pm

Says Crowe, “Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect.”

The very notion that babies are “perfect” bears examination. We all know that we’re all born with one imperfection or another, but has evolution really brought homo sapiens as a species to a state of perfection? The evidence suggests otherwise, as most of us carry organs with no obvious purpose. We might have had our appendix, or tonsils or “wisdom teeth” removed with no obvious effect. They seem to be extraneous.

The liberal/left-wing Jewish newsweekly “The Forward” reviewed the debate several years ago. Most interesting was a letter from a physician who noted increased cases of penile and urinary disorders, once rare among Jewish male babies – the consequence of their “progressive” parents electing not to circumcise them.

And for those comparing Jewish and Muslim practices, note that Jews do the circumcision on the eighth day as long as the child is healthy, while Muslims often defer until the child is 13 – consistent with the Biblical story that Ishmael wasn’t circumcised until he was 13. That means Muslim boys have to think about what’s about to happen to them, with who knows what psychological impact on them. With us, it happens without such dread, so there’s no trauma (except sometimes for the child’s mother, but that quickly passes).

There’s also the Jewish notion that we’re ongoing partners in the process of creation – that it wasn’t over in those “six days”. Maybe, contrary to Crowe’s ridiculous claim, we’re actually making the child *more* perfect. The WHO seems to think so, as they’re promoting even adult circumcision to help stem the spread of AIDS in Africa. And Israeli physicians are on site showing the locals how to do it right.

Raymond in DC on June 10, 2011 at 5:33 pm

does anyone know if mr crowe is circ himself? if so, then tell him to get uncirc then he can talk.

rus croweeats crowe on June 10, 2011 at 5:41 pm

I’m not a hypocrite and and I think its for good health. In my view, Crowe has the right to his view but not the bigotry.

If you have to bring in that stuff, it just makes you look stupid and prejudiced to boot.

NormanF on June 10, 2011 at 6:30 pm

Heads up, Russell – the children of Israel entered into a Covenant with G-D. Part of that Covenant – and as a professed Christian you should know this – was male circumcision on the 8th day following birth.

Russell, why the 8th day, sir? It’s important, and a critical piece of evidence that your Creator G-D knows what He is doing.

In Genesis 17:12, God specifically directed Abraham to circumcise newborn males on the eighth day.

Why the eighth day?

In 1935, professor H. Dam proposed the name “vitamin K” for the factor in foods that helped prevent hemorrhaging in baby chicks. We now know vitamin K is responsible for the production (by the liver) of the element known as prothrombin. If vitamin K is deficient, there will be a prothrombin deficiency and hemorrhaging may occur.

Oddly, it is only on the fifth through the seventh days of the newborn male’s life that vitamin K (produced by bacteria in the intestinal tract) is present in adequate quantities. Vitamin K, coupled with prothrombin, causes blood coagulation, which is important in any surgical procedure.

Holt and McIntosh, in their classic work, Holt Pediatrics, observed that a newborn infant has “peculiar susceptibility to bleeding between the second and fifth days of life…. Hemorrhages at this time, though often inconsequential, are sometimes extensive; they may produce serious damage to internal organs, especially to the brain, and cause death from shock and exsanguination” (1953, pp. 125-126).

Obviously, then, if vitamin K is not produced in sufficient quantities until days five through seven, it would be wise to postpone any surgery until some time after that.

But why did God specify day eight?

The 8th Day: Unique & Perfect for Surgery

On the eighth day, the amount of prothrombin present actually is elevated above one-hundred percent of normal—and is the only day in the male’s life in which this will be the case under normal conditions. If surgery is to be performed, day eight is the perfect day to do it. Vitamin K and prothrombin levels are at their peak.

Dr. McMillen observed:We should commend the many hundreds of workers who labored at great expense over a number of years to discover that the safest day to perform circumcision is the eighth. Yet, as we congratulate medical science for this recent finding, we can almost hear the leaves of the Bible rustling. They would like to remind us that four thousand years ago, when God initiated circumcision with Abraham….

Abraham did not pick the eighth day after many centuries of trial-and-error experiments. Neither he nor any of his company from the ancient city of Ur in the Chaldees ever had been circumcised. It was a day picked by the Creator of vitamin K (1984, p. 93).

Moses’ information, as recorded in Genesis 17:12, not only was scientifically accurate, but was years ahead of its time. How did Moses have access to such information? The answer, of course, is provided by the apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 3:16—“Every scripture is inspired of God.”

This item is available on the Apologetics Press Web site at: http://www.apologeticspress.org/articles/2204

But Russell surprisingly has NOTHING to say about the hideous, cruel, inhuman, misogynistic Islamic horror of violating a woman in the worst possible way by “circumcising her. Meaning, these evil swine literally cut out a girl’s clitoris.

http://rashmanly.wordpress.com/2009/01/26/female-genital-mutilation-the-horror-the-horror/

Proving once again what a satanic pack of lies the whole idea of Islam is; if you can read the Law and the Prophets, the books of Poetry and Wisdom. If you can read the Christian’s New Testament you ought to be able to discern the shocking depths of plagiarism and mimicry that is Islam. Satan seduced a violent insane misogynist, one who profoundly coveted what the Jewish people represented and who resented everything about himself and tribe – and Satan used devils and demons to whisper the ideas of the Quran into his head, whisper even verses whole. Then imbued him with the power of Satanic Verses to wreak vengeance and war upon holy people, peaceful people, the Israelites and all his neighboring tribes. A religion of war and terror and pain … that is Islam.

And of course they call it Peace.

Russell, bubba? You done opened your mouth and made yourself out to be (a) as uneducated a “Christian” as it gets and (b) ignorant of scripture, (c) you announced to G-D you think He’s an idiot and (d) you had nothing to say about the millions of women under the boot heel of Islam who are horrifying mutilated.

And if you say Christian boys should not be circumcised then you’re even more ignorant. Jesus, whom we believe to be our Redeemer and Saviour, a Jew himself of the House of David declared those who believe in Him are grafted into the family of God which was first peopled by Israel. For a Christian boy to be circumcised is to take a radical step in identifying with that Family, and with G-D. To declare we are believers in spiritual and manifest Israel; to recognize and honor the sacrifice the children of Israel have made through nearly 4,000 years for the sake of all mankind who recognize and believe in the One True G-D.

But that’s lost on you.

Nice going, skippy.

Ugh. Man, I hate Russell Crowe with an INTENSE passion. He’s a fat, ugly, mentally ill DB! I NEVER see any movie that fat duck is in because I can’t stand the sight of him. I never even saw “LA Confindential” (and I see EVERYTHING Guy Pearce is in!!!) because I’d can’t contain my rage when I see his ugly mug on ANYTHING.

And I’d like to remind all that Crowe is in fact a KIWI (New Zealander) and NOT Australian. Thank the Lord!

I loved DS’ diatribe on this crumb-bum. Go to hell RC! Only your stupid, nutter fans would ever miss you…and they’re all a sick lot!

Skunky on June 10, 2011 at 10:31 pm

I agree with the main thrust (heh) of your argument that Russell Crowe is an antisemitic idiot, but I don’t think you need to denigrate uncircumcised men to make your point (“He just loves the funny little hat on his penis”, “Men look bad in turtlenecks”, etc) It’s irrelevant to your point and offensive to uncircumcised men.

David on June 11, 2011 at 12:04 am

I happen to disagree w/ circumcision, but I think it’s a personal choice, although its medical benefits are often overstated. But I do agree that Crowe is anti-Jewish.

After all, Muslims too are required to be circumcized, just as Jews are. There are 1.8 billion of them (I’m including the women, since FGM is widely practiced as well). If one is concerned about the circumcision of babies, statistically, it makes more sense to target Muslims first, and Jews later. After all, shariah law is unchangable, and Muslims have to do it, whether they like it or not, whereas Jews who don’t want to do it have the freedom not to. Besides, a lot of Christians do it as well.

Infidel Pride on June 11, 2011 at 12:59 am

Deb, sometimes I think I am wasting my time taking on the newest anti-Jewish online youtube craze regarding banning circumcision circulating around San Francisco because in the American courts they just can’t win. Right?

It’s ironic that the same Jew hating posters who go on about “USS Liberty, Jewish conspiracy/Ron Paul stuff, and plight of the Pals”, are leading the charge (even though they support Arabs who circumsize both sexes). They got an unusual coaltion with true girlie men pissed at their parents because of either their suppossed deficient penis size coupled with low self esteem (watching too much porn no doubt) or wishing they’d have a suppossed better feeling orgasms (somehow Foreskin related?) or some junk causing them to save future children (what happened to us guys wolf pack?).

Us Jews can mention the word “circumcision” as we all have heard thousands of jackie mason jokes before birth on the subject, but truthfully are these girlie men unadmittingly pedeophiles, to talk of such a subject? I can’t comprehend any adult goy jumping to this cause who isn’t the typical anti-semite who bash everything Jewish.

Oh well at least I did a spoof on their anti-semetic “Foreskin Man”. Maybe I’ll do another one. Maybe I should do one bashing Russell Crowe.

Maybe it’s too boring in the news and I am out of material.

Even the head of a lettuce has more sense than Russell Crowe with his latest ‘foot in mouth’ episode. I can report that he has had a sleepless night and this is the result.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2002266/Russell-Crowe-apologises-calling-circumcision-barbaric.html

In South Africa circumcisions on the Zulu tribe are done after the age of thirteen as a rite of passage to manhood. However, in recent years this tribal rite that is done ‘with a stone’ in unsanitary circumstances has resulted in gangrenous penises plus other horrific consequences. The practice continues.

Should Russell Crowe ever need surgery on his undercarriage I hope his Jewish surgeon remembers this incident, with a heavy hand and a sharp scapel.

Eyes Wide Open on June 11, 2011 at 10:33 am

LOL! Thanks for that link, Eyes!

Russell Crowe ALWAYS ends up being the sorry POS that he is. Will he and his big, yapping mouth EVER learn? What an embarrassing tool.

You know, if you’re gonna be a dumb schmuck, at least stand by your dumb schmuck beliefs. He can’t even do that. What a bogan!

Skunky on June 11, 2011 at 1:03 pm

I can’t wait to see all these leftists taking on the Muslims. Should be a riot.

C S Forst on June 11, 2011 at 2:41 pm

Muslims also circumcise their young. Where’s the usual CAIR outcry on this?

logdon on June 11, 2011 at 3:25 pm

A dear friend generously opened up her house for my sons brit at which he was circumcised. Both her and her husband are not Jewish so of course this was new to them. Her husband was at work although he knew of the ceremony going on earlier that day.
As a joke, we took a tiny little piece of sliced deli turkey and left it on the table for a few hours until he came home.
When her husband came home, she showed him the table where it took place and he saw the tiny piece of sliced turkey we left as a joke.
Needless to say he got a good laugh out of that.

Bottom line is my son is healthy and happy and not negatively affected by the circumcision in any way.

Stephen on June 11, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    @stephen

    Why do the circumcion in the first place?

    Did you do it thinking “Gee, by cutting off the piece of skin which protects the penis glands, my sons will stand a greater chance of not spreading diseases when they are older. And, since I assume my kids will grow up to be promiscuous, I better circumcise them?” Ever think teaching them not to be sluts would be a better solution?………………..

    I hope you noted that circumcision does not totally eradicate the proclivity human beings possess in the way of spreading diseases. Our hands spread many diseases too – and we can live without our hands as science has shown us. Should we cut them off aswell?

    I’ll stay ‘intact’ thank you very much. And thanks for the fashion advice Debbie, but ‘turtlenecks’ will ALWAYS be in fashion — Mother Nature says so!

    Barry on June 13, 2011 at 8:46 pm

BS”D

Hmmm. Crowe thinks circumcision is barbaric; “dont cut yr babies.” Abortion–suctioning and/or cutting your baby to bits–is a choice. What a vulgar hypocrite.

P.S. I am the one who outed the vile Foreskin Man comic and trading card series, mailing the link to the organization fighting the ban on May 31. Two of us contacted ADL months ago, to no avail.

Stephen Mendelsohn on June 11, 2011 at 11:29 pm

I used to work in a hospital several years ago and one day worked in a nursery. When doing my job I heard what sounded like a cross between a pig squealing and a baby in utter horror. As soon as I could and it was a baby getting a circumcision. He was getting his foreskin removed without any pain meds. Thankfully the whole process was over quickly. Afterwards, the baby laid on the table, red-faced and passed out from the pain and his little penis bright red and inflamed from the slashing he endured. That IS 100% barbaric!

Lee in IL on June 12, 2011 at 12:47 am

If is done while they’re still babies, there aren’t any aftereffects.

The greatest barrier to male conversion to Judaism was always adult circumcision. It never affected women.

Jews would have made every one much happier if they only went along with what the rest of the world wanted.

That – then as now – was never an option.

NormanF on June 12, 2011 at 4:40 am

Russel Crowe may have been somewhat intemperate in his comments about circumcision but he is really a very good person.

In 2004, when the United Talmud Torah school in Montreal was firebombed, he was very upset about this and offered a donation to help repair the damage.

His opinions surely did not reflect an anti Semitic point of view.

Facts Life on June 12, 2011 at 9:53 am

I have often wondered what circumcision was like when first performed in the Old Testament. The foreskin protects the glans penis. The mechanical circumcision done by today’s doctor is complete. It is certainly not performed for religious reasons, as most Americans males are not Jewish, and Christians are not required to circumcise their male children. Was early circumcision complete like it is today?

My wife and I chose not to have our sons circumcised, as felt that with proper care and hygiene it is not a health issue. It certainly dries up the glans penis and affects sensitivity. It was so common and automatic when our first son was born that we had to ask that it to be performed when the doctor showed up with his tools.

I also had a friend who was circumcised that has hypospadias, where the urethra is not centered. Circumcision weakened the penile structure which eventually allowed the urethra to split open. This was very painful event caused by a careless doctor performing a circumcision without first examining the patient.

I haven’t read anything by Mr. Crow, and really do not want to. His concern with a religious practice by Jews is anti-Semitism as it aimed at the Jews, while not mentioning the truly barbaric practice of circumcision of 7 to 14 year old boys as is done by members the various Islamic cults. While not an expert on Islamic practices, I have lived in Turkey, where circumcisions were done around the time of puberty. Certainly not something I would have wanted at puberty for me or my sons. I never heard of any protests in Turkey, as I assume that protest would lead to ostracisms by the faithful.

Jimbo on June 12, 2011 at 9:58 am

Facts of life, I already mentioned that above. I believe on can be against circumcision without being an anti-semite and Russell Crowe is an example of that.

Personally, while it was hard as a Jewish mom to listen to my sons cry during their circumcisions, although for a short time, I wouldn’t have even considered not doing it.

Jewish or not, circumcised penises, while not natural, are definitely preferable ;-)

Karen on June 12, 2011 at 11:26 am

    There is something very ominous about this movement to outlaw circumcision. The health factor is only a secondary factor if a factor at all. Looked at closely what you see is a movement that, in effect, duplicates the past history and altogether infamous ambitions of many European countries and would also rid the United States of its Jews. Circumcision is the most fundamental commitment of a Jew to his heritage. Remove circumcision from Jewish ritual and you remove Jews from this earth. It’s as simple as that – so apart from all the supercilious pronouncements about heinous cruelty to babies, what defines the mindset of these terrible people is, in effect, nothing less than clearing the US from its Jewish population.

You have the same thing in Norway. No ritual slaughter for the Jews because of the sensitivity of the former to their cows. Actually its been shown that the knife is kinder to the animal than having its brains bashed resulting in its entire nervous system in horrific agony for more than a few seconds. But put this aside for a moment and consider the quality of kindness the Norwegians demonstrate in their aggressive whaling industry. Hypocrisy manifest in the extreme. It is hard to come by pictures uglier that the wholesale slaughter of these magnificent mammals. But, goodness, ritual slaughter of the Jews? Not in our good land, they say. Actually what they are saying is that Norway chooses to close itself to Jews. So if its ritual slaughter in Norway or outlawing circumcision in the US the bottom line is exactly the same. Jews have only Israel.

Arn on June 12, 2011 at 5:57 pm

The Daily Rash has a great article about Russell Crowe’s fight to save foreskin http://www.thedailyrash.com/?p=7090 It’s a fitting tribute to an idiot.

Holly Wilson on June 13, 2011 at 7:03 pm

I disagree with the practice of circumcision.It’s an unnecessary procedure in my opinion. The human body does not need to be circumcised of the foreskin which strangely, that thing called ‘mother nature’ gave to us. Weird, that she would give males a foreskin (which serves a healthy, medically proven purpose btw) only to have it deemed ‘unnecessary’ when human beings decide to cut it off.

Did religious people, practising circumcision thousands of years ago know about Aids? Thought not.So that’s not why it was first performed. So, it’s actually an outdated practice which proponents are now trying to legitimise using whacko science.

To say that it helps reduce the instances of AIDS etc is a bit of a strange logic applied to justify a position. Monogamy — the act of not being promiscuous is the biggest factor in not spreading aids.And monogamy requires self-control. No body parts are required to be chopped off leaving the body with a gaping scar.

I mean, human beings can live without all ten fingers. And it’s an objective fact that if people had less fingers, there would be less gun crime related deaths as people with less fingers cannot shoot as well as people with ten fingers. So, we should then start cutting off people’s fingers then? That seems to be the logic for circumcision — now using the ‘it helps stop spreading of aids’ is being disingenuous. Not sleeping around is even better solution but strangely that wasn’t mentioned!

So, are we saying that people should be circumcised because when they grow up, they will inevitably be promiscuous so we should remove their foreskin to help reduce the spreading of disease? Whatever happened to installing virtuous morals in people so that they don’t act like sluts when they grow up?

Circumcision is genital mutilation in that it removes a piece of the body which nature bestowed to the individual.That’s an objective fact. There is a reason that a person is born with a foreskin.Just like there’s a reason we have ten fingers, two eyeballs etc.

Also, what is rarely noted by proponents on circumcision is the NEGATIVE side effects. Ever seen a botched circumcision? Ever seen a penis that has been circumcised and is now damaged via keratin build up? Ever read about the damage to nerves many circumcised men suffer from?

The foreskin serves a purpose otherwise nature would not create it in the first place. It protects the glands of the penis for one thing. It’s not ‘disgusting’. It’s natural and healthy hence why we are born with it.

It’s manifestly obvious that people who deride circumcision usually do it based on very ‘overblown’ science but also for cultural reasons which tend to be more emotionality based..

I personally think nature is perfect and does not require human-intervention telling it how to do its job.

Russell Crowe however might be manifesting his anti-semitism through this issue — using it as a way to ‘get at’ Jews. That’s very true.

But equally, the article displayed a profound prejudice against people who are uncircumcised (the last paragraph) which is strange, since NATURE made us that way. Guess nature was wrong? Nah, doubt it.

Barry on June 13, 2011 at 8:36 pm

I’m sorry, but you are quite wrong. Circumcision doesn’t protect against HIV. Safe sex and condoms do. Plus, most circumcisions are done on infants WITHOUT ANESTHESIA. You can’t even do that to a dog or a cat.
I’m not anti-Semetic because I want to protect all babies from the pain of having their genitals cut regardless of religion or race. Whether or not they want their foreskins cut should be their choice and only their choice. No one else’s. Not religion, not doctors, not their parents, but the person whose body it belongs to. That is not unreasonable.
