Thanksgiving jihad? Butterball sells sharia friendly halal turkeys
Thanksgiving is turkey time, yet many Americans are unaware that the turkey on the menu may be halal, meaning it is slaughtered according to the dictates of sharia, the religious law of Islam.
On Monday, reports began circulating around the web that one of Americas largest producers of thanksgiving turkeys, Butterball, slaughters turkeys according to the dictates of sharia law. And apparently Butterball has confirmed the rumor: all Butterball whole turkeys sold in the U.S. are slaughtered in accord with halal, and thus satisfy sharia, Islamic religious law.
Halal is a term designating any object or an action which is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law. The term is used to designate food seen as permissible according to Islamic law.
Halal slaughter is considered by many to be a barbaric and inhumane practice. Others object to the religious aspect - the offering of prayers to Allah as the animal is slaughtered.
The halal sanctioned method of slaughtering animals consists of using a well sharpened knife to make a swift, deep incision that cuts the front of the throat, the carotid artery, wind pipe and jugular veins but leaves the spinal cord intact, and the animal suffering. In addition, a prayer is said over tha animal as it suffers an agonizing death: "Bismillah allahu akbar" -- in the name of Allah the greatest.
Some concerned citizens are now boycotting Butterball turkeys - some because of the connection with Islam and sharia - others because of the brutal and inhumane method of slaughter

Why do I care? I’m not Jewish and eat kosher food all the time.
Is it inherently bad to sell halal food?
so they have to cut the head off with a large curved sword and scream allah akbar like they’re chopping the head of a jew or other infidel, that’s all.
Now THAT’s a tilted kilt!
Would you feel better if Butterball slaughtered turkeys according to kosher rules?
Kosher slaughter: Mammals and fowl must be slaughtered by a trained individual (a shochet) using a special method of slaughter, shechita (Deuteronomy 12:21). Among other features, shechita slaughter severs the jugular vein, carotid artery, esophagus and trachea in a single continuous cutting movement with an unserrated, sharp knife, which is intended to avoid unnecessary pain to the animal as consciousness is lost quickly due to loss of cerebral blood pressure.
Butterball has to PAY these twirps for their SIGN, which the cost thereof is passed on to YOU the consumer. Nuff Butterball for me.
I don’t see it’s a big deal. First we complain that Muslims won’t assimilate then when they do we complain they’re eating Halal food by American food companies. I eat Kosher (to a point), so why not Muslims having Halal food??
Just rub your turkey in bacon grease before roasting.
All hint of halal will be removed.
If that child can afford a nice .22 lr like that one, she should be able to afford a blouse that goes to her skirt, and a bit longer skirt, too, now that I notice it. Nice shoes ...
A sidebar - In Turkey, there is a terrorist group called the Turkish Islamic Jihad. Some more info at:
It doesn’t concern me that they ask the blessing of their non-existent Allah. It would concern me if they were poisoning the turkeys to kill Infidels.
Butterball is just trying to sell as many turkeys to as many people as they can.
But let's pretend like it's some sort of conspiracy and get all wound up about it.
One can only wonder if, under sharia law, an imam is called in to perversely molest the bird?
I guess the environazi peta-punks have nothing to say about the animal cruelty aspects of what halal-killing actually is.
If you are not Christian it doesn’t matter. The Kosher way of slaughtering animals is just a procedure to get rid of all the blood out of the meat. The halal is a sacrifice to an idol. They point the animal toward the Black Rock of Mecca and slit its throat and say Allah Akbar. Its a sacrifice. The bible tells christians not to eat food that has been sacrificed to idols. So there really is a difference.
Ask yourself this question. Since 80% of the people in America identify themselves as Christians and less than 1% as Muslims why would any company try to force the 80% to comply with the 1%? All of Costco’s lamb is now halal and their organic chicken. Why wouldn’t they just have an halal section for the muslims? This is backdoor sharia. We are all Muslims now. It may seem like no big deal but it really is.
Yep, I'm going to be very, very concerned about this as I pour the gravy over the sweet dark thigh meat and sausage dressing...
I always heard that a lot of koranic rules were “copycat” rules of the OT. Like many others, Muhammed thought he could “improve” on biblical “errors”.
Those turkeys are evildoers!
The guy instantly claimed they didn't do that, so then I blamed the Seventh Day Adventist gal for that.
He gave up.
That technique works with everybody but the Lubovitch.
“Butterball is just trying to sell as many turkeys to as many people as they can.”
They won’t be for long, when word of this gets out.
Wild turkey is best deep fried but the smoked came in second.
What the story fails to mention is that the poor turkeys are not slaughtered due to the demands of Halal, but rather, they are slaughtered in a way that is approved by the muslim community.......and every other community for that matter!
The same thing could be said about all the perch harvested, filleted and sold on the open market.............
This is typical "Non Newsworthy" news designed to stir up controversy where none really exists.........A POX on the MSM!
This is not that uncommon alot of the chicken i haul is stamped “halal kill in accordence with islamic law” has been for years. we haul it in ice because it is not allowed to be flash frozen
Nobody knows and nobody cares just as long as that turkey is in the freezer section of the market...............
Like I said, the MSM trying to stir up crap in a slow news day...........
My goodness, somebody FEED that girl!!!
Just say grace beforehand. Ho hum.
Who says she can't afford it?
Like hell they are.
But let's pretend like it's some sort of conspiracy and get all wound up about it.
You're the one pretending it's not.
And if you don't get wound up about the stealth invasion of your culture by murderous barbarians intent on legal conquest, then what good are you?
You will make a great Dhimmi. LOL!
I just discussed this with my wife and we agree that giving thanks associated with a halal killed part of the Thanksgiving meal insults/violates our Christian beliefs. This is another example of the camels nose under the tent, something Muslims are very adept at. Give an inch and they take a mile from your beliefs and traditions.
If you aren’t alarmed about turkeys, you must approve of a Satanic oath being said over your meal. Allah demands this oath. Next he wants your head.
Mormons baptize dead Jews!
Plus, I have enough faith in the corruption of the big-government/big-corporate complex to be quite certain that anything they say is a lie.
A false oath in the name of the false Mormon prophet is the same thing.
I agree. The nice thing about being a Christian is that I can eat kosher and halal food without much concern. FWIW, I'm getting ready to cook a Thanksgiving ham. I'm all turkeyed out.
Not that I'm complaining...
lol ... It seemed to make sense that a thread about jihadi turks needed an infidel turkey shooter, for fairness and balance, of course.
“which is intended to avoid unnecessary pain to the animal..”
Yes, Kosher is more humane.
“Butterball has to PAY these twirps for their SIGN, which the cost thereof is passed on to YOU the consumer.”
And some suspect that part of the fee will be used for terrorism.
Great ad hominem!
