I am glad that, for what might be the first time ever, Germany is actually respecting and protecting the human rights of Jewish infants and children. Through their decision, the German court in question has finally recognized that German citizen infants and children who are born to Jewish and Muslim parents should be afforded the same human rights and protections as all other German citizen infants and children. Jewish and Muslim infants and children are finally being recognized as full citizens and full human beings by the German courts! :) I hope that the courts of more Western Industrialized nations, including Finland, the United States of America, Canada, and Australia, follow suit. Australia and Finland currently have extremely racist public policies regarding circumcision in place which effectively ban non-medically necessary infant and child circumcisions unless the child is born to Jewish or Muslim parents, in which case, it is allowed. The current public policies regarding circumcision in Australia and Finland specifically deny "Jewish born" and "Muslim born" infants and children the same human rights and legal protections which are afforded to all other infants and children in Australia and Finland. As the child of Jewish parents who was the victim of a non-consensual Jewish infant circumcision (Brit Milah) in the USA, I find it offensive that if I were to be born today in Australia or Finland where children are generally protected from circumcision, the Australian and Finnish governments would actually consider me to be less of a human being and not worthy of their protection simply because of my parents' religion.
