Circumcisions: Jewish, Muslim groups oppose ban
by Phillip Matier and Andrew Ross
Nothing like a proposed ban on circumcision to bring Jews and Muslims together.
Local chapters of the Jewish Community Relations Council and Anti-Defamation League are teaming up with a couple of practicing Jewish and Muslim families to file a lawsuit demanding that San Francisco's elections director remove the highly publicized circumcision ban from the November ballot.
The lawsuit, which is expected to be filed today in San Francisco Superior Court, argues that circumcision is a common medical procedure regulated by state law - and that it has no business being decided by city voters.
