Bill on Humane Slaughter Yields New Front for Muslim Tensions
It has not been a good year for Ahmet Kilic. Sales are down in the store where for the last two and a half years he has sold groceries and meat, slaughtered according to halal conditions. The store, on the southern edge of this Dutch city, was started 22 years ago by his brother and uncle, natives of Turkey, who took it over from its former Dutch owners.

Now he fears they could get worse. The Dutch Parliament will vote Tuesday on a bill that, if enacted, will effectively require even Jewish and Muslim butchers to stun animals — mechanically, electrically or with gas — before they are slaughtered, eliminating an exception in current law.

A tiny animal rights party, which has two seats in Parliament, proposed the bill, arguing that failing to stun the animals before slaughter subjects them to unnecessary pain. ...

Thanks for information, H.B., After being knocked on my back by around 2 kilovolts, I can tell you or anyone else won't know what happened for even a short bit. This is why I think electrocution is a more humane way of execution for murderers--if done correctly--than chemical execution.

While we do have overlord duties over animals in some ways I would have to think, when one thinks about

Luke 6
31 "And just as you want people to treat you, treat them in the same way.---NASB

One thinks that one should show some mercy to animals.

We did have a Kosher meat plant in Nebraska, but it closed, but there is still one Iowa. I'm not agitating for or against halal; but for a Christian, the treatment of animals is thought-provoking.

Jim, it is really simple. Kosher killing requires that the throat be slit so that the animal's blood is removed. Stunning inhibits the flowing of blood so more blood remains in the meat.

For the Jewish kosher kill stunning violates the command to not eat the blood. For the Muslims halal kosher the blood is used for other rituals and offerings.

There is no real evidence that stunning is more humane that slitting the throat, but it looks more humane to some.

Someone does have to explain to me stunning, but not killing an animal first would violate any of the slaughtering practices of Muhammadans and Jews?
