Denmark Outlaws Shechitah – Days After Shooting a Healthy Giraffe


 shechitahSomething is rotten in the state of Denmark. The government has made Jewish and Muslim ritual slaughter illegal.

Agriculture and Food Minister Dan Jørgensen said “animal rights come before religion,” claiming the way kosher and halal meat is prepared is more harmful to animals because they are not stunned before death.

Denmark has roughly 6,000 Jews, and those who keep kosher import meat from abroad to circumvent the ban. The Muslim population could be greatly affected by this decision, though.

In case you forgot, Denmark shot a healthy two-year-old giraffe in the head this week, so the country clearly places high value on the life and well-being of animals.

  1. Thank you for juxtaposing these two stories and bringing it to our attention. Europe is ‘farshtuken’. It seems that there is no end to the hypocrisy coming out of that blood-soaked continent…

  2. There is nothing you can say or do, but they hope you will all say goodbye or become christians, or what ever religion they are practicing now.

  3. So what if they shot it in the head we are talkig about causing pain to the animal shooting is instant death no pain lets not get of the subject.

  4. Of course! why else would an animal have to be slaughtered in front of children? And what about the dolphin? For those who don’t read Danish newspapers, let me update you. A dolphin was found dead in its aquarium – and it was dissected, both to investigate the causes of death and to provide the opportunity to professionals. So far so good; except that – again – the event was public, during opening hours, and done and in front of visitors, children included.
