I never eat halal meat if I am aware of it on principle. While the Bible states that we can eat food which has been offered to idols, my concern is about setting an example- I don’t wish to even suggest that Allah is a legitimate diety, and so I will not consume food sacrificed to him.
However, there are also other reasons I do not eat halal, namely being that halal slaughterhouses are known for having notoriously poor hygiene practices. There is also the way in which the animals are slaughtered that is a problem- halal slaughter does not actually sever the spinal cord, so the animal dies of suffocation as opposed to a failure in the central nervous system.
Britain First, a UK political organization which has openly criticized and protested Islam in the UK came out with this video of them illegally crashing the largest halal slaughterhouse in the UK. What struck me about this video was how the members of this group simply barged into the plant, began shouting, causing disorder, and even had a scuffle with the slaughterhouse staff. This speaks to something when one considers how traditionally the UK values at the very lease a semblance order and superficial politeness at all times:
Some people say the UK is dead, but that may not be so-yet.
Like with the people all throughout western Europe, they are angry with Muslims and tired of seeing themselves become second-rate citizens in their own nations.
Political stunt or not, nobody can deny that the UK, along with the rest of the continent, is edging closer each day towards a civil war between native non-Muslim Europeans versus the Muslim invaders.
