PETA keeps a blind eye to Islam while being protected by a hypocritical news media.

Michael Vick was convicted of brutally killing 8 dogs when he was running a dog-fighting ring. He served 18 months in prison and after his release Barack Hussein Obama praised the NFL for allowing Vick back into professional football. Hypocrisy runs amok in our politically correct society when it comes using double standards for matters pertaining to violence and cruelty. While Obama praises the NFL for reinstating Michael Vick, he appointed Cass Sunstein, a "raving animal rights nut", Obama's friend and nominee for "regulatory czar" last year.

(PETA) People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, known for its advertising campaigns that use celebrities posing nude to oppose the use of fur, is an animal rights organization based in Norfolk, Virginia. Its slogan is "animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment." PETA's basic philosophy is that people should not own animals, a point that is also shared by the Humane Society of the United States and the more militant Animal Liberation Front. Yet,according to the web site PETA Kills Animals PETA has killed 97% of the dogs and cats it has acquired. 
"Animal lovers worldwide now have access to more than a decade’s worth of proof that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) kills thousands of defenseless pets at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. Since 1998, PETA has opted to “put down” 23,640 adoptable dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens instead of finding homes for them"
"PETA’s “Animal Record” report for 2009, filed with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, shows that the animal rights group killed 97 percent of the dogs and cats in its care last year.  During all of 2009, PETA found adoptive homes for just eight pets."
Lately, a number of food companies have been catering to America's 1.5%  population of Muslims by offering food items that are being prepared according to the Islamic tradition of "Halal". Halal is the term used to designate food seen as permissible according to Islamic law (Sharia, الشريعة الإسلامية). It is a method of slaughtering livestock in the most barbaric fashion as opposed to the mostly painless process used for conventional slaughter houses.
There appears to be a great thirst for bloodletting in this culture that treats animals and people alike. The Muslim celebration of the Ashura, pictured below is a perfect example. Ashura commemorated by Shia Muslims as a day of mourning for the martyrdom of Husayn ibn Ali, the grandson of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad at the Battle of Karbala cut themselves with knives and beat themselves with swords.
Wikipedia, the Internet's best free on-line encyclopedia, has more details on the spread of halal in America.
In Dearborn, Michigan, the home of one of the largest Muslim and Arab populations in the United States, some fast food restaurant chains such as the McDonald's Corporation have introduced halal chicken nuggets. In the United Kingdom, China, Malaysia, Singapore halal fried chicken restaurants having thousands of outlets serve halal foods, such as the Chicking Fried Chicken, Kennedy Fried Chicken, Brown's Chicken, and Crown Fried Chicken companies. As of February 2009, Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants in the U.K. began to sell halal meals in several restaurants.

Also, in New York City there are numerous halal food carts in business which serve gyros, chicken platters, and other halal fast foods, whereas in Europe, there are many of the Muslim-owned Döner kebab shops.

A law passed by a county in Ohio in 2005 bans the sale, distribution, or production of food mislabeled "halal," when county authorities determine that the food does not meet Islamic dietary standards. Similar laws protect kosher foods in most of the United States, and in many other countries, states, or provinces.

While the introduction of halal meats in some American restaurants is still ongoing, for the first time in the United States, in early 2004, halal meats began to be offered in some chain grocery stores, in particular by the H.E.B. Grocery company. The Tex-Mex Beef Co. based in Houston, Texas, was one of the first halal meat and poultry distribution company to offer halal meats in the U.S. at the retail store level.
While PETA loudly protests everything regarding animals used in food and clothing they have yet to say a single word against the Islamic practice of halal slaughter. The hypocrisy is so obviously politically motivated because PETA has frequently criticized former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin for stories about her fondness for hunting. To other hypocritical liberals it must be acceptable to slice up living animals for religiously approved food than it is to quickly kill them with a bullet from a hunting rifle.



  1. At this point I am neither agreeing or disagreeing with your point of view, but wish to make a point of accuracy: If you Google 'PETA Halal slaughter' you will see that actually PETA has strongly come out against the practice, many times.

  2. Al Shaddad Bin Aous has quoted this tradition of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) "God calls for mercy in everything, so be merciful when you kill and when you slaughter, sharpen your blade to relieve its pain".

    Many allegations have been made that Islamic slaughter is not humane to animals. However, Professor Schultz and his colleague Dr. Hazim of the Hanover University, Germany, proved through an experiment, using an electroencephalograph (EEG) and electrocardiogram (ECG) that *Islamic slaughter is THE humane method of slaughter* and captive bolt stunning, practiced by the Western method, causes severe pain to the animal. The results surprised many.

    Experimental Details:

    1. Several electrodes were surgically implanted at various points of the skull of all animals, touching the surface of thebrain.

    2. The animals were allowed to recover for several weeks.

    3. Some animals were slaughtered by making a swift, deep incision with a sharp knife on the neck cutting the jugular veins and carotid Arteries of both sides; as also the trachea and esophagusHalal Method.

    4. Some animals were stunned using a captive bolt pistol humane slaughter by the western method.

    5. During the experiment, EEG and ECG were recorded on all animals to record the condition of the brain and heart during the course of slaughter and stunning.

    Results and Discussion:

    I - Halal Method

    1. The first three seconds from the time of Islamic slaughter as recorded on the EEG did not show any change from the graph before slaughter, thus indicating that the animal did not feel any pain during or immediately after the incision.

    2. For the following 3 seconds, the EEG recorded a condition of deep sleep - unconsciousness. This is due to a large quantity of blood gushing out from the body.

    3. After the above mentioned 6 seconds, the EEG recorded zero level, showing no feeling of pain at all.

    4. As the brain message (EEG) dropped to zero level, the heart was still pounding and the body convulsing vigorously (a reflex action of the spinal cord) driving maximum blood from the body: resulting in hygienic meat for the consumer.

    II - Western method by C.B.P. Stunning

    1. The animals were apparently unconscious soon after stunning.

    2. EEG showed severe pain immediately after stunning.

    3. The hearts of the animal stunned by C.B.P. stopped beating earlier as compared to those of the animals slaughtered according to the Halal method resulting in the retention of more blood inthe meat. This in turn is unhygienic for the consumer.
