WARNING: Halal Certified Butterball Turkeys Support Islamic Terrorism
Now the End Begins ^ | 11/22/2011 | none given

Posted on 11/22/2011 4:30:16 PM PST by RnMomof7

The meaning of Halal

Simply stated, food that is Halal Certified is food that has been prepared in accordance with Muslim Sharia law. Note the following information we got from HalalChoices.com website:

“To be halal certified the animal must be facing Mecca, have its throat cut while still alive and then ritually sacrificed by a Muslim who recites a prayer dedicating the slaughter to Allah. Fees must be paid to one of the certifying organisations for this service. Islamic certifying organisations benefit financially from providing this service. They receive a constant stream of funds to support Islamic projects which contribute to the advancement of sharia (Islamic law) here and around the world.” source – Halal Choices

Now, is this true? Are Butterball turkeys Halal Certified?

We found this on the official Butterball website:

“As an international turkey provider, we have the expertise in serving different countries and different customs, and will work with you to meet any and all product needs. We have met the requirements for the following certifications: USDA Approved, Russian Approved, Halal Certified, and employ a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HAACP) food safety system with Good Manufacturing processes. From great customer service to new product innovation to the proper certifications, Butterball has the experience you need to get our great tasting turkey in your market.” source – Butterball web site

Butterball turkeys are, by their own admission, certified for consumption under strict Sharia Law guidelines. This means that the animals must be facing Mecca when they are killed, and that they are killed in the name of Allah. A fee is paid for this certification by Butterball to Sharia-based certifying organizations who in turn send the money to support Islamic programs, including Jihad, all over the world. If you buy a Butterball turkey, a percentage from that sale is sent directly to Islamic programs.

Happy Thanksgiving.

I do not know how slaughtering these turkeys using halal and Kosher rules means BB is supporting terrorism.
What has been verified is that BB uses halal and Kosher rules for slaughter, they have not verified they yell islamic slogans.

Butterballs were $1.99 a pound at my grocery store. I chose a much less expensive brand at .54 cents a pound. It’s how you cook the things that make them good not the brand. IMHO.

Sadly, we only learned this after purchasing a Butterball turkey breast. I think Tyson products are halal, too. If they aren’t, then we’ve boycotted them for no reason. Gotta check the Tyson website now.

Of course, turkey is halal.

Here’s the BS. It’s the kosher tax canard dressed up with new characters.

” A fee is paid for this certification by Butterball to Sharia-based certifying organizations who in turn send the money to support Islamic programs, including Jihad, all over the world. If you buy a Butterball turkey, a percentage from that sale is sent directly to Islamic programs.”

Here’s the original version of this old anti-Semitic canard: “The “Kosher tax” (or “Jewish tax”) is a canard or urban legend spread by antisemitic, white supremacist and other extremist organizations. They state that unwilling food companies and unwitting consumers are forced to pay money to Jewish organizations to support Zionist causes and Israel.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kosher_tax_(antisemitic_canard))

These folks are getting intellectually pretty lazy. They’re simply recycling anti-Semitic BS and replacing “Muslims” with “Jews”. I’m waiting for the “Protocols of the Elders of Istanbul”.

That should be a hoot.

Go ahead and laugh if you will, but eating a Butterball will help reestablish the Caliphate.

Where on the site does it say ALL Butterball turkeys are “halal”?

This sounds to me like they do business in different countries and make sure their product meets the demands of their consumers.

I’m not too freaked out about it....it isn’t helping terrorists, it is helping feed people who want to buy their food.

Allah didn’t eat it. No sense in it going to waste.

Gas is a global commodity. It doesn’t matter who you buy it from. The gallon you bought was not available to someone else who then had to get theirs from Muslim terrorists. The Muslims could sell all their oil to China - That just means that China needs that much less from Canada, making it available to you and vice versa. And that doesn’t even take into account the ubiquity of chinese products you buy made using that Muslim oil.

I once backed up an inspector in central Virginia

The commodity was turkey gizzards being exported to the Nigerian military. The fact the turkey’s are killed properly doesn’t mean that the turkey is in play.

The cheap unwanted parts get shipped

Between the wild Turkeys and the wild Hogs, it looks like we have both Easter and Thanksgiving wrapped up.

Since we traditionally make a Christmas Lasagna, I'm hoping for an explosion of wild Pasta and Cheese.

Pretty soon the only Holiday Meal Shopping will be at the ammunition counter at Cabalas.

Last paragraph looks like your own, not from ButterBall.

Have you actually seen this particular processing line? Having seen the usual poultry processing lines, doubt it’d be possible to have all the turkeys facing East, but if you can say for sure, who am I to question?

If there is clear verifible evidence this company is supporting terrorists, then that is not OK. If they just say the turkeys are camel-jock certified even though the birds are processed like any other then why the stink? What about beef, chicken, corn, rice, wheat, some of that must be selling to muslims as well?

American turkey growers and American faqrmers produce a lot of food for the whole world. Why knock them on hearsay?.

HalalChoices.com is readily accessible on the net as "halalchoices.com.au"

It's not an AMERICAN SITE. When it comes to Islamic information sites in Australia or UK, those ol'boys don't necessarily speak to conditions in America.

We simply don't have enough Moslems living in clusters that anyone can support the "facing Mecca" business referred to at that site. The Moslems in America are lucky enough to be assured the animals were slaughtered in the way animals are lawfully slaughtered in America and they were not dedicated to an idol or different God.

BTW, I live in a neighborhood with 5 ~ (COUNT THEM 1 2 3 4 5) ~ halal butcher shops.

During Ramadan they go out and slaughter the animals themselves at farms where provisions for slaughter have been made. During other times of year the Orthodox and the Jews engage in a similar practice at the same farms. A friend of mine's father in law owned one ~ it started out devoted to serving the needs of Orthodox Jews then, to make it profitable, they expanded to Orthodox Christians, and in later years to Moslems.

If you slaughter your own animals (or hunt game) you can make whatever blessings you feel appropriate.

That's the end of the story. Otherwise, animal slaughter is very much a Godless, Soulless, Impersonal, brutal ~ BUT HUMANE ~ end to an animal's life and the beginning of it's manifestation as food.

Praise God that we may eat.

This year, today in fact, I slaughtered our Thanksgiving turkey. This was a first for me. I bought two of them, one for Thanksgiving, one for Christmas. The slaughter was most definately NOT halal, or even kosher for that matter.

The fat bastard is 53 lbs dressed out. Going to start him at about 8pm tomorrow night for a noon family meal.

Followed by weeks of leftovers.
