I don’t think so. In this piece for The Globalist I argue that Germany should leave this topic to others instead of alienating its Jewish and Muslim minorities by whipping itself into a hysterical debate. The discussion of potential health risks (as well as benefits, such as prevention of HIV/Aids) is justified, but it would be wiser to start it elsewhere — perhaps in the United States, where circumcision is a mainstream tradition but where its popularity has been declining in recent years.
