Halal: Secretly Shoving Sharia Islamic Law Down Your Throat

By Audrey Russo | 2 October 2013

Being a meat lover, and a great supporter of the Free Market … I like to eat out. I trust that a restaurant is revealing to me what I will be ingesting during that meal. The same goes for what meats I buy at a supermarket to eat at home. The product info is usually printed on the package because: The consumer has a right to know. But especially when the information concerns the religious practices of another faith (and an oppressive, misogynistic one at that).

Islamic Sharia Law is being introduced into Western society via Halal food. A soft or stealth jihad … causing unbelievers to submit to Sharia Law, blindly.

But why make a big deal about how a meat is prepared for market? There are very good reasons to protest this … reasons that matter to our freedoms and values:

– Companies who benefit from the Halal process give Zakat (the third pillar of Islam), of which part goes to Jihad.
– Producers feel that if all meat is Halal, they will not lose any of their market share … totally ignoring the fact that they are submitting to Islam, AND deceiving the majority of their customer base.
– Halal is part of Sharia Law, which is one of the most supremacist, misogynist, anti-Semitic religious bodies of laws in the world today.

And if this isn’t enough … Halal disrespects the ones the Quran calls “People of the Book”: Jews and Christians. According to Jewish Dietary Laws ( Talmud Avodah Zarah 29b) and for Christians ( Acts 15:28-29), consuming foods offered up to idols is forbidden.

The acceptance of the process of Halal slaughter displays contempt for the beliefs of Jews and Christians. Preceding each animal slaughter, the name of Allah is invoked, most often by saying “Bismillah” (“In the name of Allah”) and then three times “Allahu Akbar” (god is great). (This also happens to be what is shrieked every time a Jihadist murders a kafir [unbeliever], but then again they already view us as pigs and dogs, so … mystery solved.)

Devout Christians and Jews do NOT consider the god of Islam to be the same God they worship. NOR do they recognize the self-proclaimed prophet of Islam, Muhammed, to BE a prophet (that’s what caused Muhammed’s sudden turn toward hatred and call for the death of “People of the Book” in the Quran).

The appalling Islamic supremacy endemic to Islam (and therefore, Muslims), rears its ugly head in many ways. But this form of Sharia imposition is egregious. Some stores have labeled their meats “Halal” BUT apparently it “slipped” their minds to notify their customers … until a customer found it on a package. That was Costco/Price Club. Another company that slipped the label on their meats is Shop Rite. And who knows how many more are bowing on Islam’s prayer rug.

Sharia Law requires Halal meat slaughter. According to Islam, the meaning of the Arabic term “Halal” is: “lawful, legal, allowed or permissible under the Shariah (Islamic Law)”. If a company wants to cater to this minority customer, fine …i t’s a free market. BUT, to keep the majority of their customers in the dark and greatly disrespect their deeply held religious beliefs, is repugnant.

So, as you peruse the labels for healthy ingredients on your next shopping trip … look for one more ‘H’ word: Halal. It’s the kind of marinade you won’t want to stomach!

Shalom through strength.

  1. Interesting, as I grew up in a kosher-observant Jewish family, and simply didn't eat at McDonalds. We certainly didn't expect them, or any other restaurant, to change their menu to suit us. As the number of Jews is likely far below those of Muslims, who live throughout the world and in ever-increasing numbers, this could very well be more of a financially-driven move, rather than a pandering, bowing-and-scraping one. However, judging from how more and more public schools are offering halal meals (at a far greater cost to them than non-halal), bowing and scraping is likely still a substantial component.

  2. why does religion Have to govern what our bodies need to survive arnt we all people at the end of the day or how are food is prepared i respect religion i myself am christian but i don't ram it down the throats of every living person i know we are a world of people who seam whole bent on destroying our selves all for what – power, and the end of the day it's all it is about and i'm deeply saddened at this just live and let live don't interfere help others when needed and the world will be a better place

    • Now, if you could convince the Muslims to see it your way, what a great world this would be.
      Don't hold your breath waiting for them to see it your way though.

  3. 5/28/13 http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/05/2… Close to half the staff managers at companies in French urban areas have seen problems arising from religious demands by [Muslim] employees. The new study found: men refusing to take orders from a woman boss or shake hands with women; refusing to handle alcohol or pork products; demanding prayer time; wearing religious garb; demanding that non-Muslims be barred from eating during the Ramadan fast.

    http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-201_162-6128… In a sign of the deep changes in this once predominantly Polish town, the City Council passed a noise ordinance amendment that would permit mosques to issue the traditional Islamic call to prayer over loudspeakers [five times a day].

    If it takes them 500 years, they will win, like they have in the Balkans.

  4. Why do you care?
    1) Muslim rituals are not efficacious, and therefore they do not alter the meat in any way,
    2) Muslim rituals are indeed efficacious, and change the meat; in which case, since their rituals actually work, you ought to convert to Islam.
    Moreover, you mention that the God of Muslims is emphatically not the same as the God of the Jews and Christians. Aside from the fact that no Orthodox Jew would agree that the God of the Jews and the God of the Christians are the same–you don't even want to know what the Talmud says about Jesus–Muslims clearly believe that their God is the same God of Jews and Christians. Again, if He is not the same God, no harm no foul, your God trumps Islam's God and all is well. If you are consumed by fears that the God of Islam will somehow outdo your God, however, that is again a reason to consider conversion to Islam.

  5. Why are you getting Jews involved your rant? If meat is Halal, it clearly has not been slaughtered according to Jewish Law anyway. And there is no explanation as to WHY a Christian can’t eat Halal meat – it has NOT been offered up to any idol. Would you take a cruise on the QE2? I guarantee you that the ship, before her maiden voyage, was “christened” – was it offered to an idol also? Finally, why is it incumbent on the store to notify customers that some meat is Halal? If someone wants to make sure that they don’t eat Halal, check the label – nobody is claiming that there is Halal meat being sold as non-Halal (which would defeat the purpose).
