Has your Thanksgiving turkey been sacrificed to idols?
WorldNetDaily ^ | November 21, 2011 | Drew Zahn

Apologies if this has already been posted

As you sit down with your family on Thanksgiving and consider offering a prayer of gratitude, be aware the turkey at the center of the table may have already been "blessed" – in the name of Allah.

Customer service representatives from Butterball, one of America's most popular Turkey brands, confirmed to WND that the company's whole turkeys are – without being labeled as such – slaughtered according to Islamic "halal" standards.

"Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus and the jugular vein and letting the blood drain out while saying, 'Bismillah allahu akbar' – 'in the name of Allah the greatest,'" explains Pamela Geller, author of "Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance." "Many people refuse to eat it on religious grounds. Many Christians, Hindus or Sikhs and Jews find it offensive to eat meat slaughtered according to Islamic ritual."

I got a better idea; how about Jews and Muslims leave our Christian Holidays the hell alone?

I dunno about you all; but I'm about damned tired of this horse crap!

I agree. Leave my turkey sandwiches alone, which is a ritual around here. I don’t pay any attention to these people. I don’t care what they say while they are killing the turkey.

As a Christian, the Jews are you rbrothers, serving the same God.

Last I checked, the assault on our culture / holidays and such is not coming from the Jewish direction.

I say “pissmillah on Allah” when I go to the bathroom after eating Thanksgiving dinner to reverse the curse.

this is as ridiulous as worrying about whether the turkey had a fulfilled and rewarding life.

i’m sure praying an our father and a hail mary over the bird at dinner time will reverse any spells by the imam.

Agree- Go to HoneyBaked Ham. Only boycotts will send the message. When Catholics and Christians stop doing business at “Holiday” Greetings store, car dealerships, departmental stores, they WILL get the message.

“I got a better idea; how about Jews and Muslims leave our Christian Holidays the hell alone?”

1. I don’t see Jewish people doing anything here. I see muslims passing off halal meet as normal meat.

2. Since when is Thanksgiving a “Christian Holiday”? Last I checked the puritans were rather welcoming to Jewish immigrants. Indeed, Rhode Island Colony was specifically formed to attract Jewish and Quaker immigrants.

Oh, and you’re a stupid putz.

Just stuff it with bacon and that will cancel out the halal.

This has got to be one of the dumbest stretches I’ve ever seen. To worry about the beliefs of the person that prepares your food. Do you really think it could mean something?

Well the throat cut and bleed out part makes meat taste better. That’s why the kosher deli has better pastrami than the non-kosher. As for the prayer thing, whatever. Actually I’m having pork and shrimp for Thanksgiving, don’t actually like turkey.

I’m pretty sure our Thanksgiving Ham is pure. Every year I cook a Turkey and Rabbit, as one son is allergic to poultry and the other absolutely loves Turkey. I’m too tired to fix both this year, so both sons will be disappointed but I won’t fall asleep during dinner.

Just for background info, Halal and Kosher meats are virtually identical in preparation.

In parts of NY, where Jews and Moslems live among one another, they patronize the same butchers, with no conflicts.

In my neighborhood, a Halal food cart and a Hatzolah ambulance often share the same block.

As a true-blue American, I understand the reflexive revulsion many feel, but I will offer a hopeful counter-narrative. Thanksgiving turkey may just be a gateway drug for some moslems to experience "being American". That can't be a bad thing.

“....slaughtered according to Islamic “halal” standards.”

.
That’s what is going to happen to this country if it continues to allow Muslims to infiltrate.

You’re speaking of the secular Jews, aka ACLU-types, and not Jews in general, right?

Thanksgivings is a Christian holiday to Christians, but it is not exclusively Christian.

Maybe that is why so many Somalis are now working in the major packing plants, even around here. ;-(

They can kill the beef-sheep-chicken-turkey all while howling one of their prayers to their moon god and never miss a beat. No one in the public would know anything about it.

It takes a lot of mooselimbs for all those turkeys! As Christian Believers, it is more important now than ever before to pray over everything we eat...breaking the curse of false gods!

I’m with you on the non-Christian thing. If “Merry Christmas” offends them, it may not be the Christmas spirit, but I’m not to worried about it.

There is no reason to offend my own sensibilities to honor someone else’s. If they choose to say, “Happy Holidays”, I don’t care either, if it’s an individual. If some mega retailer wants to ban “Merry Christmas”, that’s OK, too. I’ll do my shopping elsewhere.

No, our turkey has not been sacrificed to idols.

As a matter of fact, I am getting ready to go outside and assist my wife in butchering our turkey the Kosher way

Yes, that's right, my wife has decided the Jewish method of butchering an animal will help it taste better. She says it is more humane too. (whatever)

Oh, she just informed me we are not using a Kosher knife, nor are we "Kosher certified" (Just had her proof this comment....)

Sorry, but I've been duped by WND for about the last time. Just try to imagine a "Butterball" plant slowing to a snails pace to butcher a turkey. I don't think the killing line slows down for some raghead to do his dance.

Having said that, I wouldn't purchase a turkey from a Hallil store. I'm sure it will have body fluids and DNA splattered on the meat. If it says "Kafir only", save your money.

I’ll tell you what’s been sacrificed here with Thanksgiving....how in the heck do you make STUFFING, if you’re not some bang-up whiz bang that loves to cook and has oodles of time?

Looking at all what’s available there are more steps than Chins in a Chinese phone book...2 maybe 3 simple item adds are about all I’m willing to fool with....stuffing, broth, cut celery, and some chopped onions (if I can find a package already cut)....that is ALL!
