Muslims Sue Animal Welfare Minister Over Halal Slaughter Ban

Several Muslim organisations are bringing legal proceedings against the Flemish Animal Welfare Minister, Ben Weyts. They hope to revoke regulations introduced by him banning the ritual slaughter of animals in temporary abattoirs for halal meat.

    A great way to get them to leave the country.

    How about a muslim ban. Problem solved.

    Make them go kosher.


    • Yo Mama

      That wouldn’t be acceptable because Jews don’t believe in having sex with their meals before slaughtering them.

        Be fair, they’re supposed to swap goats with their neighbour so they aren’t eating their own consorts.

    • John

      There is an enormous difference between kosher and halal slaughter. The only point in common is that the animal is conscious when killed.

      ‘Conscious’ can mean calm and reassured, as is the case with kosher slaughter, or it can mean scared shitless and traumatized, as is the case with halal.

      There are also questions about hygiene.

        And it would be for their own good.

    My favourite meat is a nice salty ,smoked ham or a seasoned pork chop grilled to perfection.
    It is quite an art to kill a hog. It takes practise. Want me to teach you ?
    WE don’t bother to pray to God or man. WE just like to eat it.
    The Frenchies collect the blood— and make Blood pudding.
    It is pretty disgusting ,but, they are French. They are excused.

      much of Europe makes blood pudding. Poles , Russians , etc
      a wild guess .. they were starving
      China ? , don’t ask

        You should try their Head Cheese— it has a very strange white colour .– You spread it on a piece of bread like butter, then dip it in blood pudding—- They love it .
        My neighbour used to bring me some—- I would get him dead drunk and then feed it to the dog.
        I didn’t want to hurt his feelings.

        In UK and Ireland, blood sausage is called black pudding.
        It’s part of a “full English” breakfast.

      Rare steak here.. crunchy on the outside, bloody on the inside. Requires high heat (started on the stove, finished in the oven), cast iron pan, butter, beef.

    Ritualized infliction of pain, it is the Muslim way.

  • tom_billesley

    A “temporary abbatoir” is for backyard butchery and sacrifice for Eid feasting.
    It’s also where they practise their throat slitting.
