IN an unprecedented turnaround, in Holland, The Netherlands, the second chamber just voted 116-30 and 79-97 forbidding Jewish schechitah ritual, the kosher slaughtering by which kosher meat is gotten from animals that are slaughtered following the Jewish tradition of instant death of the animals so as to avoid the deadly toxins living bodies liberate if they are killed suffering. Jewish law prohibits any suffering when killing any animal, especially if its meat is to be considered kosher.
With this decision, Holland takes a firm stand to stop mostly the advance of Islam in their midst.
While it is a decision that affects its Jewish community, it is mainly directed to the increasing Muslim community whose slaughtering laws for hallal meat are less strict in regards to non-suffering of slaughtered animals.
It is, in this sense, that the renowned activist and Dutch politician, Geert Wilders, a friend of the Jewish cause, has signed for the prohibition of slaughtering of animals for religious reasons.
