Dr Simon Hochhauser, the Co-chair of Milah UK which promotes and protects the right of the Jewish community to carry out religious circumcision, has welcomed Iceland’s decision to drop its proposed bill to ban circumcision.
He said: “We welcome the common sense decision of the Icelandic Parliament to drop this bill which would have criminalised law-abiding Jews and Muslims and their traditions. This result follows extensive lobbying by Milah UK, its European partners and supporters from other faiths working very closely in step.”
