Militant Secularist Anti-Semitism

First, the proposed San Francisco circumcision ban, now, my ancestral homeland has introduced a "bill that would ban kosher slaughter on supposed humanitarian grounds" — Poisoning the well of animal welfare.

Spengler, with whom I seldom agree, rightly says, "Given that kosher slaughter is mandated in order to prevent animal suffering, the entire proceeding is grotesque." Whenever I read about the horrors of factory farming, the first thought that comes to mind is, "I should really start buying kosher (or halal) meats," not, of course, for religious reasons, but for the sake of animal welfare.

Kosher and halal meat more than bear comparison with our own meat production practices, although here in Britain, having banned foxhunting, we might as well ban kosher and halal meat. The question is whether we should ever have banned foxhunting.

Let us hope that the Dutch kosher and halal ban is as unenforced, because as unenforceable, as the British hunting ban, the latter enacted to persuade disgraceful MPs to vote for the Iraq War.

Do the Middle East's ancient indigenous Christians eat halal meat? If so, then there cannot be anything wrong with it in principle.

Israel, meanwhile, is now so desperate that she is importing Russians who refuse on principle to eat kosher meat, and who insist on taking their IDF oaths on the New Testament alone, a purely anti-Semitic position unrelated to Russian Orthodoxy, which keeps Old Testament figures as Saints and which venerates icons of them.

Oh, well, at least they are not Arabs, eh...?
