Jewish Infant Gets Herpes From Controversial Orthodox Circumcision Rite


A New York City infant was recently infected with herpes after undergoing a controversial circumcision rite, but survived, health officials said.

The baby contracted herpes simplex virus type 1 after undergoing the rite known as metzitzah b’peh. This is the second confirmed case this year by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

The infant survived after developing a fever and vesicular lesions on its scrotum in the weeks after circumcision. HSV-1 was isolated from the lesions. Metzitzah b’peh is still practiced by some ultra-Orthodox mohels where the blood is orally sucked away after the cutting of the foreskin. Though not serious for adults, it can be fatal for infants, causing permanent cognitive and physical damage or even death.

In January, the DOHMH began requiring that parents sign an informed consent waiver to allow metzitzah b’peh to be performed.

The DOHMH said no form was submitted for the procedure. Despite the apparent violation, the agency said it has no plans to pursue a legal case against the parents.

There have been 13 confirmed cases by the DOHMH since 2000. Last month, Rabbi Hershel Schachter, prone to making controversial statements, said that local hospitals underreport the number of neonatal herpes infections from metzitzah b’peh.

    There really is nothing to say when one reads of these horrors. These filthy rabbis and their degenerate ways will be the death of their own people as well as ours if we do not protect ourselves. The other day I was watching some show by “our dear friends” and a guy mentioned he was “the way God made me” and all the girls (very attractive in an American whorish fashion) in the room started shuddering and “Eeeeeew!” “Gross!” “Go get it fixed. UGH!”…. I mean, first the topic was really not right for young viewers, but …

    Meanwhile babies get diseased for life thanks to an abhorrent ancient practice involving a vile proponent of death preying upon an innocent who was born into the wrong culture.

    Have a look at the picture will ya!! A tribe of pedophiles watching on intently as the master pedophile molests a child!!! WTF? They all probably look forward to this as it’s the only arousal they can get. Sub-human depravity yet again from the chosen, just to clarify here…. a pedophile sucking the BLOOD from and infant’s freshly cut penis!!!! Satan must be sooooooooooo proud.

    Reading this is making me sick. Why does everything they do have to be so depraved. How can there ritual practices be so backward and have survived for over 3 thousand years. It boggles the mind!

    Let’s handle this matter in a traditional “eye for an eye” manner…have some full blown (pun intended) HIV infected fellator (a member of the Tribe of Pseudojudahsauroans) should bite the mohel’s penis until bleeds, salivate on the open wound and trust in YAWHOO take care any problem that developes.

    I’m against violence but not for these sick non human f***s.

    Why would anybody in their right minds allow this to happen to their children? How many more babies have to wind up infected with herpes and worse because of this filthy practice?
