Are you so uninformed (or misinformed) that you really think that the Israeli lobby gives half of a fuck whether non-Israelis and non-Jews are circumsized, or are you perhaps a neo-nazi?
If you had any real background information or education regarding the subject you'd know that religious Jews generally prefer that non-Jews not
practice Jewish ritual. If the almight "hawkish" Israeli lobby was really out to control US penises, they would probably want ensure that circumcision be limited to Jews alone.
And for the record, circumcision outside of the Jewish faith became a widepread practice many years before Israel became an independant state.
