Anti-Semitism starts with banning shchita (Kosher ritual slaughter)

One of the first steps Nazi Germany took against its Jews was to ban Kosher slaughter of animals (shchita). Is the European Union heading down the same path? Maybe.
The European Parliament in Brussels last week voted through an amendment to a new European Union food-labeling bill that would require animals not stunned before being slaughtered to be labeled on food packaging.

The Environmental and Consumer Affairs Committee of the European Parliament voted through the amendment necessitating kosher meat to be labeled “unstunned before slaughter.”


The regulation on the provision of food information to consumers will now be voted on by the entire parliament at the second reading in July.

Last year the same amendment was carried at first reading by a majority of 56.

“The fight to stop this amendment is far from over,” said Shechita UK’s chairman, Henry Grunwald. “In recent months we have highlighted to a number of MEPs that this amendment does nothing to improve animal welfare, fails to fully inform consumers and is clearly discriminatory by design – and most have now chosen to reject it.
What could go wrong?

For sure, cattle are much happier about being slaughtered if spikes are electronically driven through their skulls.

The only good thing is that
HALAL slaughtering will be included in the ban.

In Jewish law even criminals who are put to death are allowed to be put under first. So why not animals. Also, since technically this is not prohibited except for in the case of a sacrifice in the Temple. Since no Temple, why the argument for no reason.
