In what UK Authorities are calling a “racist” attack (as though Islam is a race which it is not), an unidentified British man or men burned a Muslim “halal” butcher shop and reduced it to a heap of smoldering rubble:
Police say a white man, wearing a blue jacket, walked into the halal butchers and tossed bottle of accelerant, which was alight.
Detective Inspector Greg Evans said: “The inquiry is at an early stage and I am keeping an open mind as to the motive.
“The man was not seriously injured but it could have been much more serious.”
The 67-year-old said: “It isn’t the nicest area around here and it does attract people with far right views.
“I have overheard people making comments to Eastern European residents and Muslims that they should go home now.
“It is a disgrace that these thugs are trying to intimidate people like this and think it is the best way to get what they want.
Thank goodness somebody had the sense to do something. Halal butcher shops are a plague in a non-Muslim society for many reasons. As far as the food quality is concerned, halal butcher shops are notorious for being highly unsanitary. The animals are slaughtered by Islamic standards, which does not ensure a quick death but rather a slow, cruel, painful, and messy one. These shops are also known as being fronts for laundering money for all kinds of illegal and dangerous things such as drugs, prostitution, and most importantly terrorism.
Regardless of who did this, this person’s actions demonstrate a simple fact- talk without action is useless. It is important to pray and pray strongly, but for Christians, it is critical that we act after we pray because that is what we are supposed to do – pray, then act.
As they say in Britain, “Good work, mate!”
