Just when you think that Obama couldn’t let us down anymore than he already has…you realize that the truth is, his deep ties to ISLAM is what makes him sympathetic to the Islamic way, and there is no stopping him.
We have just learned that the USDA is REFUSING to label meat processed as Halal. This refusal comes despite a petition that has been circulating for years now.
That’s right, and it’s President Obama’s U.S. Department of Agriculture that has refused this.
Now, to some people this might not seem like such a big deal. HOWEVER…there are differences between meat that is processed Halal and meat that isn’t. The differences will change your mind.
First, it’s not just about Islamophobia. Halal meat is actually by ritual slaughtered in a way that is far more painful for the animals. Which come on…WHY would we want to support UNNECESSARY cruelty?
At least, I’m guessing that is what most consumers will feel.
Kosher meat, which has similar slaughtering ways, IS in fact labeled as Kosher. So why is labeling meat Halal any different!?
“As many Americans do not, for a variety of reasons, wish to eat halal meat, back in February 2012, my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, filed a citizen petition with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, asking that a regulation be enacted to ensure that all halal food be clearly labeled as halal,” Geller wrote.
They had agreed to NOT publicize the petition early on, and that was as a courtesy. They wanted to give the agency some time to review the document without any pressure or push from the public.
It didn’t matter, they didn’t care. The answer was always going to be.. No.
Does this seem a bit like silent subservience to Shariah law to you?
A huge amount of meat sold to Americans everyday in this country is halal, but it is not labeled as such because of who our President is.
This is no less than a SCANDAL.
Now, of course yes..it is an established practice, and meat packers generally haven’t ever separated halal meat from the non-halal meat or label it as such. So this petition was a huge effort in correcting that wrong and making it right. However, the DOA has literally IGNORED our efforts for the past 4 years…and plain refusing to rule on our petition.
Do you believe this is right? Are you ok with eating meat not knowing how it was processed from live animal to packaged and ready to go?
