    Halal slaughter in a public parking lot, while a kid witnesses a cow getting its throat cut – something that non-Muslims apparently need to get used to, judging by the account “Suddenly, Musaed whipped out a foot-long knife and slit the cow’s throat as other Saba employees wrangled the animal. The officer was stunned over the disturbing act. “You know this is a big — this is a problem. This is not something that can be done,” the cop said. How many years will that kid have nightmares? Respect it! The gory scene prompted the closure of the Saba meat...

    Europe's far-right community is boycotting Toblerone chocolate after learning that the sweet is now halal. The certification that enables practicing Muslims to eat the well-known triangular chocolate actually came in April, but a social media post by a spokesman for the far-right Alternative for Germany party, known as AfD, brought it to the forefront last week. Then came the hashtag #BoycottToblerone, which has since spread to other countries, including England, France and the Netherlands... Deerfield, Illinois-based Mondelēz International, which owns Toblerone, told CNN that the production process for the chocolate made in a factory in Bern, Switzerland, didn't need to...

    Toblerone, the iconic triangular shaped chocolate bars have been made halal to meet the demands of the Islamic market. The change, that silently took place in April this year, has now been revealed to Swiss newspaper Blick. Owned by the American food company Mondelez, all Toblerone bars are being produced in the Swiss city of Bern. A spokeswoman of the company explains to Blick that since April the sweets comply with the Islamic purity law and ingredients and production now meet halal standards. She says the “Toblerone’s original recipe remained unchanged”. She justifies the change with Toblerone’s status as export...

    Perhaps you prefer almond milk in your morning porridge, take soya in your tea and enjoy regular turmeric lattes. But have you ever tried a camel-ccino? If not, dairy doubters, chances are that it won't be long before you do. Asda announced last week that it will soon be stocking camel's milk in selected stores. The product is supplied by long-life milk brand Camelicious, which is owned by the ruler of Dubai, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Priced at £2.85 for 235ml, it's not cheap - but it means that the milk will be more accessible to people in the...
  • What is halal?

    Halal Choices ^ | Sep 9, 2015
    Halal simply means permitted or lawful. So when we are talking about halal foods it means any foods that are allowed to be eaten according to Islamic Sharia law. This means that for any food to be considered halal it must comply with the religious ritual and observance of Sharia law. Here at Halal Choices we are concerned with the halal slaughter of animals such as beef, lamb and poultry. 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...

    Counter Jihad Report ^ | Mar 26, 2013 | Joe Kaufman
    In October 2010, news broke about how the Campbell’s Soup company received an Islamic (halal) certification for some of its product line, and many were outraged. There was a legitimate concern – not with the fact that Campbell’s received the certification, but with what organization the certification came from, that being the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a group co-founded by Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) leader Sami al-Arian. In 2007 and 2008, ISNA was named by the U.S. Justice Department as a co-conspirator for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. The defendants...

    Gainesville -- Officials at Mar-Jac Poultry said they were shocked to find out Thursday that federal officials suspect the company might have ties to terrorist funding. Company Vice President Doug Carnes said at least a half-dozen U.S. Customs agents spent all day Wednesday gathering financial records and charitable contribution files. They were "real nice, professional and complimentary," he said, but they didn't disclose the nature of their visit. It was only on Thursday that Carnes was alerted by company officials in Virginia as to what the agents were looking for. "I'm shocked. I'm in disbelief. I've worked for them for...

    WND ^ | Aug 14, 2016 | Leo Hohmann
    Anti-Shariah activist Pamela Geller’s campaign to get halal meat labeled on American supermarket shelves has been sent down the memory hole by the federal government. Geller started a petition drive in November 2011 with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service seeking to have halal meat – which is ritually slaughtered in the presence of an imam to make it suitable for Muslims to consume – labeled as such. It was only fair, she said. Kosher meat, which is blessed by a rabbi before slaughter, is labeled on store shelves so why not halal meat? More than...

    This is an outrage. If the roles were were reversed and it was Muslims being ignored, Muslims whose dietary religious traditions being violated, all hell would break loose. Pamela Geller: USDA Ignores AFDI Petition to Require All Halal Meat Be Labeled as Such A great deal of meat sold in this country is halal but is not labeled is such. It’s a scandal — but an established practice: meat packers generally do not separate halal meat from non-halal meat, and do not label halal meat as such. We attempted to right that wrong. But the U.S. Department of Agriculture has...

    JENSEN BEACH, Fla.— Omar Mateen visited a gun shop in this town near his home about five or six weeks ago. His request: heavy-duty body armor—rated IIIA, the sort typically used by law enforcement—and bulk ammunition. While at the store, Mateen had a phone conversation in which he appeared to be speaking in a Middle Eastern language, according to Robbie Abell, the co-owner of the store, Lotus Gunworks of South Florida. Staffers also noticed him texting on his phone. Mateen “just seemed very odd,” Mr. Abell said. “The questions he was asking [about body armor] were not the normal questions...

    A number of mostly Muslim migrants hosted in a hotel in the northern Italian town of Chioggia ripped down the Italian flag in protest of an Easter meal of pasta in place of their usual chicken and french fries. The owners of the Al Bragosso di Sant’Anna Hotel usually give the 45 migrants a dinner consisting of chicken and French fries on Sundays, but on Easter they decided to serve the pasta instead to properly celebrate the holiday.

  • Aossey Sentenced in Halal Scam

    02/29/2016 9:12:08 AM PST · by iowamark · 3 replies
    A Cedar Rapids businessman convicted of mislabeling Halal meat will spend 2 years in prison. 74-year-old Bill Aossey, founder of Midamar, was sentenced in federal court Thursday morning on federal fraud charges. The sentence also calls for three years of supervision after release and a $60,000 fine. During the hearing the judge repeatedly scolded Aossey for committing perjury during his trial in court last year. Aossey’s conviction originally called for a 9 to11 year sentence. The judge cut the sentence due to Aossey’s age of 74 and the unlikeliness that he would commit another offense. Aossey was convicted by a...

    Proposed legislation was introduced into New York City Council to require that the city’s public schools provide Islamic-compliant food – halal – as an option in the cafeterias. The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) joined forces with council member Rafael L. Espinal, Jr. (Brooklyn) to support Resolution 54 at a press conference on the steps of New York City Hall on Wednesday, March 26. Fourteen other city councilmembers co-sponsored Espinal’s Resolution. The Resolution goes into explicit detail about what Islamic-observant students are permitted to eat and what they must avoid eating, as well as stating...
  • Halal vs Kosher (differences and similarities between Islamic and Jewish dietary laws)

    11/18/2015 1:38:29 PM PST · by EveningStar · 33 replies
    Halal and Kosher are terms often heard in the context of meat and dairy, and although it's common knowledge that the terms refer to guidelines on what can be consumed and what cannot, few know what either really means, let alone how they differ. "Is this kosher?" has become a common expression that has transcended the context of religion and food to the point that it simply means "Is this acceptable?" in a colloquial sense. Halal and Kosher refer to what's permitted by Islamic and Jewish religious laws respectively. Halal is an Islamic term that means lawful or permitted. Although...
