A slaughterhouse in Weobley, Herefordshire has been bought by the Muslim PakMecca meat company at an auction in Ludlow. And Islamopandering for votes is Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Hereford, Lucy Hurds, who was positively gushing in her praise for this company and appears to be going out of her way to say to her potential non-Muslim voters ‘move along now, nothing to see here.’
Fahrenheit211 Although this property has been an abattoir for a considerable time, what will go on there will not be, as Ms Hurds says, only ‘what has been going on before’.
Halal slaughter is like no other form of ritual slaughter. Halal rules do not have the animal welfare safeguards that, for example, Kosher slaughter has.
In halal slaughter there is no rule that says animals are not slaughtered in sight of other animals, which would give them distress, and there have long been suspicions that halal meat is so cheap because the slaughter conditions are so piss poor.
Kosher vs. Halal:
Kosher – requires the animal be slaughtered quickly and humanely, strictly forbidding cruel slow methods like strangulation.
Halal – requires the animal be bled out in agony while sick people who get off watching that kind of thing have a “festival.”
Kosher – requires the blood be drained cleanly from the *carcass* of the humanely killed animal, removing toxins released from cells into the bloodstream at the moment of death from the meat.
Halal –leaves the meat *filled* with toxins released at the moment of death because the blood is removed while the animal is dying and therefore is not present in sufficient quantities to remove those last toxins.
Kosher – contains little to no cortisol or norepenepherine (two stress chemicals that are similar enough from mammal to mammal to cross species) because the animal to be killed is treated well before it is put down and is generally not frightened as it is put down (because in a truly kosher slaughter situation, animals cannot be slaughtered in a sequential fashion, as the waste of one could contaminate the next, so they are not exposed to the “scent of death” the way non-kosher culls are)
Halal – animals watch other animals die during the blood letting festival, smelling their fear and raising their own stress. These stress chemicals “marinate” the meat in hormones known to raise levels of aggression and violence in nearly all mammal species (including human).
Kosher – requires cooking the cleanly drained meat completely, cooking any remaining stress chemicals into oblivion.
Halal – allows for a surprising range of cooking methods, including even some “tar tar” dishes (raw or nearly raw), allowing for the spread of disease and chemicals and hormones that were not removed by the idiotic slow bloodletting practice and half-measure cooking.
Kosher – the spinal cord is sectioned thus cutting off pain to the brain. Therefore, no suffering or terror.
Halal – spinal cord left intact.
Halal slaughterhouses have also been accused of poor animal handling and slaughtering the animals in distressing conditions, or doing stuff that would be absolutely forbidden in kosher slaughter ie stabbing the neck of the live animal to bleed it out, rather than using a rounded ended blade that is more than razor sharp to open the arteries for exsanguination, as is the case with Kosher slaughter.
If you are going to have ritual slaughter then it must, as much as possible, be as far as practicable, cruelty free. There is no way on earth can Halal meat be called cruelty free, especially as animal after animal is slaughtered with a knife that gets progressively blunter after each cut, which causes progressively more pain to each succeeding animal. Unlike in Kosher slaughter, there is no requirement in Halal slaughter for the knife to be as sharp as possible and nick free, and because of this, animals suffer far more in halal butcheries than in almost any other type of meat production.
Unfortunately, even though Ms Hurds gushes profusely about ‘jobs’, this project will probably not bring jobs for local workers in the Herefordshire area as the slaughterer, according to Shariah Law, must be a pious Muslim and it is highly likely that many of the rest of the employees will be Muslim as well in order to comply with Shariah. Not only will it not bring jobs but it will bring more Muslims to Herefordshire, who will make the same outrageous demands for special or advantageous treatment as they do elsewhere in the UK.
Maybe Ms Hurds has one eye on the whipped or fraudulent ‘mosque vote’, that so often benefits Labour or Lib Dem politicians, but is a great detriment to both the indigenous population and those ex-Muslims who are fleeing from Islam in areas, like Tower Hamlets or Newham, where Muslims control a significant proportion of the vote,.
Ms Hurds and the local Liberal Democrats have nailed their colours to the mast on this one and have shown that in the future they will be as enthusiastic about giving Islam a political blow-job as they are elsewhere. At least by speaking about this issue so enthusiastically Ms Hurds has given the people of Herefordshire a solid reason NOT to vote for the Liberal Democrats.
