Tundra Tabloids’ colleague and friend, Brian of London, from the pro-Israel blog, Israellycool, sends the TT the recent post he published on the halal and kosher debate within the Counterjihad. It’s an important subject because of the ramifications if the CJ decides to lump both of these ritual slaughtering rites together, because in the end, halal will prevail due to changing its objection to stunning, something that kosher slaughter will never allow.
The reason why halal slaughtering has less stringent requirements than kosher slaughtering methods, is that halal is less of a religious requirement than of enforcing sharia norms on all of society, Muslim and non-Muslim alike. So no matter how this turns out, Jewish codes of ritual slaughter will lose out, with halal being the winner. Is that what the Counterjihad really wants? KGS
Decision making time:
Kosher Chicken Or Collateral Damage?
Brian of London here: forgive me if I go in a strange direction at first, this is going to circle round and talk about halal and kosher again.
I’ve been involved in a discussion on why Holland has been taking a more decent line with regard to Israel and, especially, toward groups who seek to destroy the Jewish home. This report of the Dutch Foreign Minister taking steps to withdraw funding from the BDS movement is a prime example:
Dutch FM says he’ll work to stop funding estimated at 10m. euros organizations calling for divestment, boycott, denying Israel’s right to exist.
The Foreign Ministry under Rosenthal has begun to institute sweeping reforms to stop Dutch charities from funding anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) activities and NGOs that deny Israel’s right to exist.
For sure a great deal of the credit for this must go to organisations like NGO Monitor but what about Geert Wilders?
He is a strong leader, he knows the subject he’s talking about and he has a love of Israel that puts many Jews to shame. I don’t understand why this is not more widely recognised as having some effect. I’m no expert on internal Dutch politics but surely his pivotal power must be moving some of the fence sitters?
Right now the counter Jihad is on a knife edge and might take a very stupid decision on the issue of halal meat: I’m one of those trying very hard to stop elements of the counter Jihad (including Geert Wilder’s party in Holland) from making animal rights the central attack issue. One way or another halal in Europe will be attacked: I believe there are plenty of grounds other than a (misplaced) belief that slaughter without stunning is cruel.
Unfortunately, if the counter Jihad movement goes after stunning of all meat as a goal (which aligns with the more moderate animal rights people) then halal will adapt and allow it (90% of halal meat in Europe has been stunned to some degree) and Kosher will be wiped out in Europe. It would be a personal disaster (in my opinion) for Geert Wilders to be the one that does this but it could happen in Holland.
