A Slap in the Face

Note that I didn't say "a slap in the face of Jews," as Muslims also practice infant circumcision. The American Thinker and other conservative sources have been beating the drums over a proposed referendum measure in San Francisco that will ban circumcisions and traces the history all the way back to the reign of Antiochus IV Epiphanes (175-164 B.C.), who persecuted the Jews to the point where they rose up against him in the Maccabees revolt. This appears to be the work of a small but persistent minority, and Lloyd Schofield is the leader.
