"The next thing could be that Danish nurses are forced to go under cover as Muslim women in order to please Muslim patients." Martin Henriksen, Spokesman, Danish People's Party [DF]
One of the largest hospitals in Denmark has admitted to serving only halal beef -- meat that is slaughtered in accordance with strict Islamic guidelines -- to all of its patients regardless of whether or not they are Muslim.
The revelation that Danes are being forced to eat Islamically slaughtered meat at public institutions has triggered a spirited nationwide debate about how far Denmark should go to accommodate the estimated 250,000 Muslim immigrants now living in the country.
The halal food row erupted in July when the Danish tabloid Ekstra Bladet reported that Hvidovre Hospital near Copenhagen has been secretly serving only halal-slaughtered meat for the sake of its Muslim patients, for the past ten years. The hospital serves more than 40,000 patients annually, many (if not most) of whom presumably are non-Muslim.
Halal -- which in Arabic means lawful or legal -- is a term designating any object or action that is permissible according to Islamic Sharia law. In the context of food, halal meat is derived from animals slaughtered by hand according to methods stipulated in Islamic religious texts.
One such halal method, called dhabihah, consists of making a swift, deep incision with a sharp knife on the neck that cuts the jugular vein, leaving the animal to bleed to death. Much of the controversy involving halal stems from the fact that Sharia law bans the practice of stunning the animals before they are slaughtered. Pre-slaughter stunning renders the animals unconscious and is said to lessen their pain.

Muslims don’t like Bill Murray?
No Swedish meatballs at the local IKEA?
You know, can I just go ahead and say what almost everyone else but the gay Muslim POTUS are thinking , F$&K Muslims and the camels they rode up on. I am NOT to give one more inch to these turban headed troublemakers.
Dames , throw these bastards out . They contaminate and pollute your country . They do ZERO to aid or improve your society . Remember your Viking roots . Time to sharpen your short swords again . Don’t be liberal pussies .
islam is a cancer. It gets onto the boy and infects the whole organism until all that is left is the dying carcass.
! Give him the bolt !
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
How about giving non-Halal meat to non-Muslims?
Is that so hard?
Where are PETA, the Animal Liberation Front, et al? One would think that in liberal northern Europe, they would have scads of supporters.
You know, I get the sense that “ethnic cleansing” may be coming to Western Europe in the not too distant future.
Feeding the Crocodile, hoping it won’t eat you.
I saw a white mom with her two kids, around 9 or 10 years old, in the supermarket yesterday. They talked like they were from the deep South. Including the woman. But she was dressed as a muslim.
“yall chillen ready for the Big JeeHaw Jihad??”...
Next, they can expect halal aebelskivers...
And just when do Muslims accommodate anybody else in any Muslim majority country? Hmmmmm?
And so, people representing a nation of over 5 million people bow down to activists claiming to represent a group of 250,000 people. Or maybe the people implementing the policies didn’t even need prodding to roll over and show their bellies while waving the white flag of surrender and offering the ROP a Lewinsky.
Danish Dhimmi Nanny State PING!
Lol, or Chris Makepeace.
I have a strong feeling that Danes (the people, NOT the dogs!) will soon put an end to this. While most Danes are moderate to liberal, even they will find this “accommodation” for the muslim minority to be too much!
If the muzzies want to eat halal, they need to never get sick or go back to the Islamic craphole they came from!
Welcome to Dhimmimark.
Multiculturalism made us tolerate the intolerant, and now intolerance is annihilating tolerance. -Gertt Wilders
Islam in Belgium and Europe :
No meatballs? I’ll take a BLT instead.
Any halal Bacon?
I think in the next 10-50 years several European countries - Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Holland, England, France, and possibly others - will see civil war, sharia, and mass emigration of native Europeans, or all of the above.
A country that qualifies for the “Special Kind of Stupid” award.
No Christian should ever eat halal meat (or food), EVER. It is meat that has been sacrificed to a pagan god (Moon god death cult of Allah). The ritual killing of halal and dedication to Allah: the slaughter must be performed by a Muslim, who must precede the slaughter by invoking the name of Allah, most commonly by saying “Bismillah” (”In the name of Allah”) and then three times Allah Huakbar
See 1 Corinthians 10:27-30
27 If any of those who do not believe invites you to dinner, and you desire to go, eat whatever is set before you, asking no question for conscience sake.
28 But if anyone says to you, This was offered to idols, do not eat it for the sake of the one who told you, and for conscience sake;[f] for the earth is the Lords, and all its fullness.[g]
29 Conscience, I say, not your own, but that of the other. For why is my liberty judged by another mans conscience?
30 But if I partake with thanks, why am I evil spoken of for the food over which I give thanks?
Dhabihah works well on "islamophobic" PETA members, although usually a slower sawing with a dull knife is reserved for them.
The one interesting consequence of the Iron Curtain, is the countries behind it were largely spared from the influx of Muslims that have plagued Western Europe, and in the end, those countries may very well be the guardians of Western Civilization as a result.
The muzzies can build their own hospitals!
Push back, or it’s over.
My local health food store is owned by first generation Danes, established by their now deceased Danish parents. There’s a few stores in the county.
None of this Halal ap-cray had better appear there, or we go elsewhere, after we pitch a fit.
No, I have seen no signs of this, TG . . .
RE: Denmark Bans Meatballs to Accommodate Muslims
So, where do those who want meatballs go to buy them?
Good catch! That guy must really make ‘em mad.
Better plan, BANNISH ALL Muslims.
Denmark is a huge producer of pork products.
This Halal thing is just a subsidy for Imams.
How about providing Halal to Muslims. . . at a 200% surcharge. Which may NOT be paid out of public funds. Otherwise, give ‘em the veggie special: THAT is halal. . .
“....Hvidovre Hospital near Copenhagen has been secretly serving only halal-slaughtered meat for the sake of its Muslim patients....”
Couldn’t they have secretly served a pork/beef mixed meat in spite of its Muslim patients?
WTF would have known the difference?
“Danish nurses are forced to go under cover as Muslim women in order to please Muslim patients”
From what I’ve read about how Muslim men behave when away from home, the nurses might instead be required do dress like strippers and hand out cocaine.
But apparently, in the case of the West, the boy is the one inviting the cancer.
