Protestor: ‘Preach hate against UK and it’s fine – attack halal meat and end up in court’

A MAN has been hauled before the courts on religious charges after he went into a supermarket and stuck stickers on packets of halal meat warning that it “funds terrorism”

Liam Gary Edwards covered packs of the ritually slaughtered meat with red stickers bearing the slogan ‘Beware! Halal is barbaric and funds terrorism #BanHalal”.

The 29-year-old was arrested by police after being spotted carrying out his one-man protest on the store’s CCTV cameras.

He has since branded Britain’s legal system a “joke” and suggested his sentence was disproportionately harsh compared to Islamist hate preachers, who often go unpunished.

A court heard how he went into a Sainsbury’s supermarket in Salford, Manchester, armed with a sheet of the stickers which he had bought on the internet.

Accompanied by his girlfriend and two young children, he then went up to the meat chiller and stuck nine stickers on packets of meat before leaving.

  • The UK is toast.

    Read the comments on the article. Almost no opposition to Islam.

      I keep hoping and praying that most of what I read on this blog is bullshit. .
      I have a nephew that reads here now.
      He keeps asking me if all this is true?
      I just tell him that some is for fun –but the message is true.
      He is at least beginning to deradicalize himself from the years of socialist indoctrination.

      He is now having doubts about Palestine—- but he is not too sure if the Jews have 6 legs or 2 heads. All is good.

          I’ve got two heads.
          Unfortunately, only enough blood to run them one at a time.

      • You can hope and pray all you want. But what you read on this blog is not BS.

          OK.— Take it easy. Are you going to have a hissy fit?

    Halal is religious bigotry writ-large and should be made categorically illegal.

  • Icebow

    It’s an outrage, that halal shops are allowed in the UK, or Canada, or Saudi Arabia for that matter.

    • I avoid Halal shops.

      • luna

        Me too.

      • Icebow

        So I should hope! Unless protesting, of course.

    Also not charged: Anti-Israel activists who vandalize stores with Israeli products.

    • Very true.

    • John

      Lawyers for these activists argue that such vandalism is anti-Israel and doesn’t have a religious component…believe it or not.

      • roccolore

        Please. They would never pick on a Muslim business or a place that sells good from Muslim countries where gays are thrown off buildings and women are beaten for not wearing cloth coffins.

  • Shebel

    Muslims kill a few of us, and tend to get upset and live in fear, when we overreact with stickers and graffiti.

    “Halal is barbaric and funds terrorism”

    Truth is Hate.

    • Gary

      PETA is just another gutless group like NOW and GLAAD that fear attacking islams misogyny and barbarism plus the daily murders to homosexuals while women get flogged.

      How pathetic to belong to a quasi-religion where the vast majority of the 6,000,000,000 humans now presuppose that that 1.5 billion muslims are prone to riots and beheading people as a favour to their version of god. It’s not Accommodation to give muslims what they demand when the outcome for not meeting their demands is suicide-bombings and mass-slaughters by devout follower that do NOT have a mental illness or suffer depression by the evidence they had to have made a Free-Will choice to murder humans.

        Sort of makes you MAD–don’t it?

  • Blind Druid

    I have now grown weary of this nonsense in my country of birth. My brother (still there) is a full blown dhimmi with his head in the sand. The whole society disgusts me, and the memory of my Dad and his brethren in the Normandy invasion has been sullied by this PC crap. I will actually laugh with derision when the next murderous big muzzie jihad attack happens, because those appeasing Brit losers don’t deserve any sympathy. However they are after all in the end – Brits. Tough bastards. Push them hard enough, and they will get get medieval all over again. I await with bated breath.

    • Shebel

      I sure do hope that you are correct.

    • I do hope they can turn it around.

    ” Magistrates admitted it was not a “run of the mill case” but handed Evans a four-week curfew banning him from being out between 9pm and 7am. ”

    He got grounded.

    But, good for him. The slaughter methods for kosher and halal are quite similar, but only one funds the crazies.

      Kosher slaughter involves one cut through trachea & esophagus (carotid artery & jugular vein included). If done correctly the animal should feel little or no pain, and be unconscious in seconds.

      I’ve seen videos of halal slaughter houses and street slaughter during Muslim holiday where the animals are abused before during and after slaughter. I’ve seen then cut multiple times, and I’ve seen then bleed out for minutes. Videos are online, you can see them yourself. But I’ll warn you they are not quite as bad as beheading videos, but almost.

      • wallyj180

        I’ve worked in slaughterhouses, up close and personal, on the kill floor.
        I’ve never seen a halal kill but I can’t imagine it being different from a kosher kill in a regulated business. You really don’t have time to do it but quickly and efficiently.

            Wow, that brought back memories.

            I worked on the kill floor 3 different times. The first was back in 1976 or so.
            Nothing in the video posted was out of the ordinary. I didn’t see any gratuitous abuse. They don’t all die quickly. That is the way it is done.

            My first stint was as one of the the guys after the cattle were stunned and shackled. They bled out quicker when stunned because the heart still worked for a short while.
            My job was to slice the throat (lengthwise) and skin the head. The next guy chopped the horns and took the head off. As I said ‘up close and personal’, not a job for the squeamish.

            We didn’t have many kosher kills, maybe 4 or 5 a week. . They were done by a rabbi.
            He blessed the beef and then slit their throat, just like in the video.

            Enjoy your summer BBQ’s.

          • wallyj180

            I’ll watch that later.
            But I’m sure it will be a whole different thing.

            I’ve seen some pretty horrid things on the job, but they were few and far between. You don’t last long if you if you’re there for the ‘thrill’.

    Looks like he had an idiot for a “defense” lawyer

    “Lee Hammond, defending, said that the father-of-two had been shocked after watching a documentary on how livestock were killed in halal slaughterhouses.

    After researching halal on Twitter, he came across others who shared views of what they perceived to be “unfavourable methods”, one of whom sent him the stickers.

    Mr Hammond said: “Unfortunately the group he had found had more extreme views that went in to religion, funding and terrorism.”

    So according to his lawyer Halal has nothing to do with religion and terrorism.

    • Poor sod.

      • Ho Hum

        I also notice upon re-reading the article that he plead guilty to “religiously aggravated criminal damage” This was the highest charge against him. Why would a defendant ever plead guilty in a case such is this? A lesser charge I could possibly see but this makes no sense. His lawyer should have argued that he was fulfilling his civic duty by alerting shoppers that they were funding terrorism and contributing to animal cruelty by buying Halal products.

  • Shebel

    ‘Truth be Told’– I honestly could care less if meat is Halal, Kosher or just the way I like it.
    I bet you that no one could ever tell the difference.
    I have cut the throats of quite a few animals. It is never nice unless you are totally numbed to the fact that as you cut the throat that you really do cut the whole fucking thing. This is all bullshit. When I kill a chicken or turkey I can slit their throat with a razor. Just one side. They don’t even know that they are dying. They just have their death flaps as the lights go out.
    You want to kill a beef — you knock them on the head with an axe or just put a bullet in their brain and then you slit their throat from ear to ear. Is that HALAL?
    I am sure that you are all interested as to how to kill a pig. It used to be that you didn’t knock them out. You had to do it the halal way. A bunch of big guys would hold the piggy on its’ back , and if you were really good at it–one thrust of the knife and blood would spurt in the air like a fountain. The blood was collected and as the pig died you would turn it on its’ side so as to not loose an ounce of pig blood.
    If you have never tried Blood Pudding — then you have Never really lived.
    Actually that is a French thing. — I find it to be disgusting.
