Only In Israel

Well, It was due to happen. After I wrote about it here almost three weeks ago, the British Farm Animal Welfare Council (FAWC) said that Halal and Kosher slaughtering must stop.

The Farm Animal Welfare Council (FAWC), which advises the government on how to avoid cruelty to livestock, says the way Kosher and Halal meat is produced causes severe suffering to animals.

Both the Jewish and Muslim religions demand that slaughter is carried out with a single cut to the throat, rather than the more widespread method of stunning with a bolt into the head before slaughter.

Kosher and Halal butchers deny their method of killing animals is cruel and have expressed anger over the recommendation.

"This is a major incision into the animal and to say that it doesn't suffer is quite ridiculous," said FAWC chairwoman, Dr Judy MacArthur Clark.

Hey Jude, in case you didn't learn some basci biology, youshould know that pain occurs when nerve signals to the BRAIN signal it. When all blood is cut to the brain, the brain stops living within 2-3 seconds, there is no way that the brain will "feel" the pain if it's DEAD. It's a major duh.
Let me again remind you. The first Nuremberg law Hitler made, was one forbidding kosher slaughtering of animals. Sieg heil FAWC!
