If we can’t ban halal meat, we should at least let people know when they’re buying it

The UK now carries out more halal slaughter than the rest of Europe. Most of us eat halal meat unwittingly on a daily basis, since it is sold in most major outlets, including big brand-name supermarkets, without being labelled as such…

Short of an outright ban labeling is the best solution, the market will decide and producers who continue the cruel practice will be punished.

    I’ve often asked myself what the point of selling unlabeled Halal meat is. Presumably, people who want Halal will avoid it, while those who don’t care will be buying it. It really is a tool of stealth islamization.

      Always ask if what you’re buying is halal certified. Simple.

    Even if labelling it “Halal” was required by law, it’s not like Islam is famous for obeying laws.

    It’s about the money.

    Somewhere along the line some meatpacker or supermarket chain or independent grocery store has or is paying a muslim organization a fee because they have purchased Halal certified products. In the end that fee is always past on to the consumer.

    Banning the practice of halal slaughter on the basis that it is inhumane and cruel is what should happen.

      And of course part of the fee goes as “zakat” to charities such as Hamas.

    I wonder why PETA never, NEVER, has anything to say about this vile barbaric act of animal torture. Just like I wonder why feminists never, NEVER, say anything about how mooslim treats women.

      We both know the answer to that one.

    Fundamentally it’s about money. Always follow the money. Secondarily it’s about barbaric slaughtering practices. Sorry J-people but kosher killing may have to stop as well. Label everything, give the consumer the choice. There’s no need for new laws, just enforce the current statutes and it will all stop.

      Is kosher slaughter less humane than the government approved slaughter practices?


      • FactsWillOut

        Yes, it is.

    I’m thinking it subsidized, as well.
    Halal chicken is always cheaper. Why is that?

    • Justin St.Denis

      The possibility that some muslim worker fucked your chicken is high and thus affects retail pricing, I suspect.

    Labeling Halal meat as such should be the law. It is the right of the consumer to know whether they are supporting inhumane slaughter and Islamic terrorism with their purchases. A few years ago the Canadian government studied Halal labeling. I wrote to them and suggested mandatory labeling for Halal meat and they replied that this was not something they are looking at.

    Currently tons of Halal meat is being sold unlabeled. For instance if you by products from Maple Lodge Farms I suspect it is Halal because they produce Halal products in the same plant.

      The appetite for sacrificial meat is growing exponentially in the west and so does cruel halal slaughtering techniques , where a conscious animal { western abattoirs stun the animal prior to slaughter } is slaughtered and in deep pain and anguish slowly bleeds to death. All the while an Imam blesses the sacrifice to the most benevolent the most merciful ! These halal abattoirs hire only practicing muslims, and there is also a fee for the imam’s blessing and a fee for halal-certification, paid for by the consumer. Quite the shakedown in this lucrative industry . The meat industry in the west is being taken over by islam.
