    I'm not quite sure, why my comments on this one do not appear here. However, the Teichtal case is an internal affair of the Federal Republic of Germany - which is a sovereign country. So it's not the decision of Moshe Morsiano to be the judge on this affair, it is even not up to him to comment on this one. Rabbi Teichtal lives in Berlin, the circumcision has taken place in Berlin, so German law is to be obeyed - and as far as I see, German law was SEVERELY violated in this case. In addiition, as a German citizen, I feel deeply offended by foreign peopole who interfere with our internal affiars. This holds true for the newspaper Haaretz as well. I politely ask to respect our sovereignity and to not mix into our internal affairs. Yehuda Teichtal is free to choose his residience wherever he prefers, however, if he chooses to live in Germany, he has to obey German law. Period. Detllef Bosau, Germany
