Two more babies stricken with herpes after ritual ultra-orthodox Jewish oral blood sucking circumcision in New York City
Two more new born have been infected with herpes virus in the last three months after undergoing a controversial religious oral circumcision in New York City.

These latest cases bring the total count to 13 infants since 2000, two of which suffered brain damage and two died from the virus which can rapidly spread throughout its body.

The ultra Orthodox Jewish ritual of metzitzah b’peh requires a practitioner to orally suck the penis of baby to ‘cleanse’ the open wound following its circumcision, making them vulnerable to the virus.
The department of health says one of the latest infants to contract the virus developed a fever and a lesion on its scrotum, seven days after the procedure. The boy later tested positive for HSV-1. That virus differs from HSV-2, the genital herpes, which is contracted during sexual intercourse.

‘A herpes infection in a newborn baby has the risk of leading to severe illness and death,’ Jay Varma, deputy commissioner for disease control at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene told ABC News.

‘The reason is that the baby doesn’t have the same fully developed immune system as an adult. Instead of staying in the genital area, it extends throughout different organs in the body,’ he explained.

He said it’s too soon to tell whether the boys will suffer permanent effects.\

The identify of the rabbi who performed the circumcision is being withheld by the boys’ parents, preventing the health department to step in, they said.
Dangers: Since 2000 13 known cases of herpes have resulted from the practice, two of which suffered brain damage and two others died
Dangers: Since 2013 known cases of herpes have resulted from the practice, two of which suffered brain damage and two others died

We have one big huge problem, we aren't interested in fixing problems in our Jewish communities? We like to cover everything up and play stupid that everything is o.k.? Everything is a lie? The government are antisemitism? They just want to bring down ,Jewish minhugim, Jewish mitzvos,? They just want to mix in in Jewish circumcision,? So let me make it very very clear, that the health department is not here to mix in in the problem of ,metzitza bepeh, absolutely not? They are here to keep us safe? Especially when it comes to new born babies,? But unfortunately they found lately mohalim who knowingly that they are infected with herpes, and with that they still went on with making,metzitzah bepeh on new born babies,? knowingly that they will infect babies with the herpes virus? Is now better that they made the situation worse? (2) we had married man and woman ,yes Jewish and orthodox,and Hasidic, who unfortunately messed around all this years ( man cheated on their wife's) especially in the summer times and then went back to have a relationship with their wife's little did they care if they contracted a virus from the people with whom they screwed around with (,yes we do have today Jewish Hasidic married man and woman who do have ,stds, ,hiv,and ,aids,) yes rabosie let's wake up If we have a problem that babies are getting infected with herpes that means that or one of the parents are infected with a disease or the mohel became infected from a baby who he lately made a circumcision,? And this mohel must be stopped from making ,brisen circumcisions,totally? like ,pupener rebbe of Williamsburg Brooklyn he was a mohel and the health department stopped him totally from making circumcisions because they found out that he was infecting babies with herpes,? This is a serious problem and we should not cover it up with our crazy stupid way of stopping the government to make a stop to all infected mohalim or from mixing in in this huge problem ? by giving them our votes telling them will give you our block votes ,? No no let's make a stop to herpes on babies,??this is more important ? This is how we solve problems? by placing the facts in front of us and dealing with it ? Trying to fix it ? Not covering up every single problem? Stop with the nonsense block votes ? Let the government be involved in this problem ?

Long past due to start exposing the cruel bastards running the Monsey chadorim & girls schools how they are even worse than the Lakewood cartel that Rechnitz blasted.

Monsey is even worse as much of the problem, unlike Lakewood, is not tied to whether someone is a good fit for the yeshiva with hashkofos. Much of it boils down to laziness and mindboggling selfishness for no particular reason of not giving a damn that kids & their mishpochos are suffering. There is also on a limited basis pure greed & monetary shakedowns or only taking those who can pay full price at some places.

Tonight we start with Bodenheimer. Bais Mikroh, Bas Mikroh. Who gives a rat's behind if he is "innocent" of the molestation he pleaded guilty to, as many claim. Fort, fort, he beat the daylight out of kids. And now he is part of the sickness that keeps many Monsey kids sitting at home with nowhere to go. He is a stone cold Yekkish ice cube with no heart. He lies to gedolim like the rest of the Monsey operators. His kids running the system with him are also badly behaved. For those who know how the Bodenheimers lied & gave the runaround to gedolim, it was not seen as a coincidence that the County recently raided & heavily fined them for violations in the same inyan as the lies and other bad behavior.

Unfortunately I have friends living in Monsey. And unfortunately they told me what's happening with children in Monsey, they are not being excepted in the /mosdos/yeshivas/schools/ not only that but in Monsey the( avlah) is bigger because the rabunim are aware of this problem that hundreds of children are sitting home and not being excepted in the mosdos hachinuch system's , and the rabunim don't give a ,f...en dam about this crime, So what reb nuchem Rosenberg always kept saying that to solve this problems the best thing to do is take your children to public school but with the media in hand and let the media expose for the world especially for the board of education,why this children are coming to public school,? and let the media show that this children who are being walked now to public school are children from the Jewish Hasidic community and they where not excepted in to the Jewish schools,,watch and see how fast ,,yosi gestetner,,will come running and crying to the media and denying the entire situation,? Only this way will help, To you all parents who have children at home who where not excepted in to the Jewish schools bring down the media and do the right thing and expose this crimes what the mosdos in your neighborhood are doing against children, we have no choice But to stop this tremendous crimes against children, we need the first ,nachshoin ben aminuduv, frum sitting and crying nothing will happen bring down the media and expose the cheap job what the board of education is doing on Jewish children, knowingly that Jewish children are not being excepted in to the school system's

There was once a time when Margo was the only shvantz who was not taking kids for money reasons, "fitting in" reasons or just plain being a self-absorbed SOB. And he was the butt of jokes because of it

Now Margo has a bunch of clones running around NY-NJ doing the same thing.

The baalei musser learn that the ambatya rosachas by Amalek made their shlechtkeit easier for the goyim to do the same.

The only way to stop this crimes on children is to expose the board of education on the media, let's show for the world that when it came to Jewish children the board of education turned around and looked the other way its time to stop the corruption of the board of education ??

There was a big metzuyan in learning who applied to Margo's post Eretz Yisroel division Yam Hatalmud. Because the metzuyan was soft spoken and dressed a bit on the shlepperish side, they were very cruel with the insulting oyfan how they told him he is not accepted. It was their loss. Other yeshivos were happy to have someone of his caliber.
