It is my understanding that all state governments and the Federal government have laws to protect animals.
It is an irrefutable fact that two groups in Australia openly violate these laws and commit CRIMES against animals under the protection of freedom of religion:
Jews (kosher slaughter) and Moslems (Halal). These methods of slaughter are abominable, to say the least.
As a vegetarian of more than three decades I find the idea of slaughter any animal totally unacceptable and, to put not too fine a point on it, an indication of a – how shall I put it delicately? – questionable ethical standard.
But as a realist I also acknowledge that people eat meat. That being so I think that the very least that must be done is to stun the animal before slaughter which is, of course, what the law requires.
If I were to kill an animal in the manner employed by Jews and Moslems I would – and rightly so – find myself in court, facing heavy fines and/or imprisonment. What is wrong for one human being is wrong for everybody! There is no room for double standards in a society like Australia that claims to honour the law and thinks of itself as compassionate.
My question to you is this: Can you show cause why the above-mentioned groups are allowed to do with impunity what is wrong for everybody else?
Allow me to point out that there are countries in the world that have banned these cruel methods of slaughter, New Zealand being one of them.
Please note that this email will be posted on my blog www.thechosenites.wordpress.com as will any response or lack thereof on your part.
Thank you for your time
Have a nice day
PS Do not hesitate to contact me if you require me to supply further information on this subject. There is no dearth of material that proves kosher/halal slaughter to be unspeakable cruelty. I can, amongst other thing forward to you links to videos that show kosher slaughter, assuming you have the stomach to watch this.
PS I can assure you of one thing: I WILL NOT LET THIS MATTER REST
Here is the link to a video on Hitler and the Jew World Order. The first half hour or so features the barbaric rites of circumcision and ritual slaughter.
