Austrian State Could Make Jews Register to Buy Kosher Meat

9

A right-wing state-level Austrian Cabinet minister defended a plan to force Jewish residents to register in order to purchase kosher meat, citing “animal welfare” as his reasoning, according to a report from Haaretz.

Haaretz notes that Gottfried Waldhäusl is the only state-level Cabinet member from Austria’s populist Freedom Party, which was created by a former Nazi and “strongly opposes Muslim immigration.” Waldhäusl’s plan was immediately met with harsh criticism from Jewish advocates, who noted that compiling a list of Jews echoed Nazi laws implemented in Austria in the late 1930s. The Berlin office of the American Jewish Committee explicitly noted that similarity, tweeting, “Soon with a star on the chest? This is an attack on Jewish and Muslim life! #Anti-Semitism.” The regional leader of the ruling Austrian People’s Party emphasized that this law would never take effect, and added that “Of course, nobody will have to register to buy kosher meat. There will be no such thing.” Many outlets have noted, however, that Austria has taken a hard right turn in recent months; despite the general rejection of Waldhäusl’s proposal, his party is still part of the nation’s leading coalition.

  1. Tidy Austria. Moon heading. Back to Germany. Fluff it so much. Jews need no registry.

    The war was enough. Hitler spawned on their soil. Militaries grew their blood deep.

    My helping bridal nebulous days wonder. Am I still unwed because 6 million of my own people could not be given housing and only forever starvation to death? Surely a jew wonders how he can maintain the soil of Austria. The chicken blood is nothing compared to their own blood and mine.

    Europe wants dogs. Let them bite. I need to sleep. This makes American jews ill. Maybe Austria can just belch its bother its finance to mention its own holocaust reparations. My bet is jews can not feel even happy to belch their last steak.

    Austrian hate is mother proud. They can hunt bambi anywhere a forest but no gold in better their flag.

    Dust be they.

  2. Looking at a list every time someone wants to buy meat will be a pain. They should make some sort of symbol people can get to get meat easier, like maybe a big red J on their ID or a yellow star that says “JEW” in it. I am being sarcastic, of course. What moron thought this up?
