Banning kosher practices: Be honest, it’s all about the Jews

Sure, it’s not at all about Jews. The Dutch are going to outlaw kosher slaughter. New Zealand has already done so on the pretext of animal welfare. The AP article incorrectly states that NZ banned halal slaughter. Halal slaughter is allowed because they stun the animals prior to killing them. Take a look at this picture. It sure looks like this description of halal chicken slaughter:

The standard chickens are either gassed in pens or hung upside down by their feet and dipped in a bath of electrocuted water – a plastic bar being placed on their chest to keep them calm. Halal chickens have their throats cut when they are alive – albeit in many cases they are stunned in a water bath first.

It’s about Jews, with the shabby excuse that it’s about treating animals humanely. The Dutch did some kind of experiment that claims that animals slaughtered by kosher methods feel more pain than stunned animals.

Hm, let’s see. A European nation banning kosher slaughter. Where have we heard that before?

If the Netherlands does outlaw procedures that make meat kosher for Jews or halal for Muslims, it will be the first country outside New Zealand to do so in recent years. It will join the Scandinavian, Baltic countries and Switzerland, whose bans are mostly traceable to pre-World War II anti-Semitism.

Oh. And now we get to the real reason behind the ban. But of course, don’t say it out loud.

  1. It is not just Kosher slaughter that is being banned on the pretense of “humane treatment”. San Francisco is attempting to ban circumcision of anyone below the age of 18. They are pretending that the child must be old enough to sign a consent form first. I suspect that once the Muslims raise the fuss, they will change the age to 13, so that the ban will indeed affect only Jews.

  2. Yes, Sabba Hillel, but here in America, we have the First Amendment. No way that law goes into effect in SF.

  3. wonder says:

    The ban in the Netherlands isn’t anti-Semetic. It was initiated by Geert Wilders, who is a good friend of Avigador Lieberman. Wilders receives most of his donations from wealthy Jewish donors from America and Israel.

  4. And yet, banning kosher slaughter affects only Jews. So something that affects Jews, but nobody else, isn’t anti-Semitic?

    Riiiiiight.
