(FILES) A picture taken on July 23, 2011 shows a barber circumcising a Muslim young boy during a ritual of mass circumcision in the village of Gornje Lubinje. Israel's ambassador to Germany welcomed on July 18, 2012 plans by parliament to pass a cross-party resolution on protecting the right to religious circumcision, after a court ruled it a criminal act. Diplomats admit that the ruling has proved "disastrous" to Germany's international image, particularly in light of its Nazi past, following uproar from religious and political leaders in Israel as well as Muslim countries.
