Isaac is cradled in his grandfather's arms. In the space of a few minutes, the Orthodox ritual circumciser, or mohel, separates the foreskin from the head of Isaac's penis, pulls the skin forward and inserts a metal shield that protects his penis while his foreskin is cut off.

^^ pulls the skin forward and inserts a metal shield that protects his penis while his foreskin is cut off ^^

This is such nonsense. The penis is not "protected," since part of is being amputated. It would be like inventing something to safeguard the hand while a finger was chopped off.

People who have a foreskin don't think of it as a separate thing. It's just that part of the normal continuous sleeve of penile skin that's been found to be easiest to remove.
