Well it MIGHT be the Jews

Sweden introduces a PC law that isn't working very well
Many boys in Sweden are still being damaged by illegal circumcisions, despite the introduction of a law in 2001 to protect them. But how many boys are being operated on by people without the legal right to do so is still unclear, according to the National Board of Health and Welfare.
There is the blinding revelation of
Circumcisions in Sweden are performed almost exclusively by Muslim and Jewish families and are grounded in religious beliefs.
But here is the killer
Since these boys were all older than one year, the implication is that these were Muslim circumcisions since the Jewish ceremony is carried out in the first weeks after the birth. But Torsten Mossberg said he did not want to draw that conclusion.

"I don't want to point out the Muslims," he said. "That would be too specific."
Bwa ha ha. Let me see, Sweden has high immigration from predominantly Muslim countries. Immigrant slums have developed in cities like Malmö where even police fear to tread. The Jewish population of Sweden is less than 20,000 and Jewish immigration to Sweden is sweet fa. In contrast there are about 300,000 Muslims. A law wasn't necessary before 2001. You don't have to be a Nobel prize winner to figure this one out. "Don't want to be too specific". Looks like Mossberg had a botched circumcision as well and lost a couple of extra dangly bits to me.

Hmmm. Sweden sounds like the ultimate control-freak country. Did it's people really demand the regulation of circumcision?

AL
I do believe that it is one of those laws that go into effect and nobody has any idea about it. The vast majority of Swedes would not have the boys circumcised, the small Jewish population has probably done it safely for a long time since they are well integrated and educated. That leaves the immigrants with the less than savoury methods who do not have contact with doctors or hospitals, are unwilling to alter the traditional methods and have no idea of new laws being passed anyway. One of those dumbarse situations where a problem is identified, the dumb govt passes a dumb law to "stop" it and everything carries on as usual. Not so much control freak as stuck on stupid when passing legislation is the answer to all problems.

Agree with Sir and Al, Sweden is control freaks....Chefen every where in Africa we do circumcise the boys, without any problems, so I think it's not only about health concerns on this ruling....
