    Is it true that, by and large, non-Jewish European males are not circumcised?

    Most men are not circumcised in Europe, at least in Scandinavia and Central Europe it is very rare.

    In New Zealand, which is populated mainly by people of Westen European descent, circumscision was quite popular 20-30 years ago. Approximately half of boys were cut at that time. There are no religious reasons for it here as therer are few Jews but it was quite popular amongst Catholics for some reason. Now its very rare(less than 5%) and most people don’t buy into the argumnant that a son should look like their father. I worked on legislation to ban femlae genital mutilation a few years ago and therer was quite a major movement to ban male circumscision too.

    Most Western European countries have a circumcision rate of under 20%. There’s a useful UN-produced map at: http://www.who.int/hiv/mediacentre/infopack_en_2.pdf
