Nyack you are right and it all makes me sick, all this religious bs makes me sick, and I am so glad I stopped eating meat!

But Giana, you made sure it was very apparent it was a MUSLIM who was given his so-called "just" deserves. Not just any MUSLIM either, but one of those evil Palestinian types, even though killing animals is not something just MUSLIMS do. :(

I don't eat any kind of animal products not just meat because all the dairy cows and layer chickens are all killed too when they reach the end of their productive life (or at least to avoid visible signs of Mad Cow which is now quite tied up with chickens oddly enough). But I didn't do it for religious reasons or so I could point fingers at a religion other than mine who just might also kill in horrendous ways.

Really, take a look at the Kosher killing ways. There is some horrendous abuse, and on a much higher level of amount. Who do you think should receive "payback" for that?

Syd, I agree with you completely. It could also have been a religious Jew who got payback. I hate anything that has a ritual sacrificing of animals and have stopped eating meat completely. As a matter of fact, Kosher meat is less "tasty" than unkosher meat.

In some of the photos they seem to enjoy the slaughtering, it's just awful, those poor animals.

This piece was passed on to me as is, with thid title, by a friend of mine who is also an animal advocate and a vegetarian. It doesn't mean that only Muslims do acts of this kind, it only shows the cruelty from one part of the world population. But, living in Israel, and growing up here, I have become aware that the simple Muslim Arabs, who live in villages, don't view animals as pets with souls and treat them as work slaves. Horses, donkeys, sheep, chickens, etc. It's a cultural thing. Things are changing though, and the word has spread, let's hope more and more people in this world learn to respect and love animals and not just abuse and exploit them.

Nyack, I would be happy with that story too, a good ending, any animal fighting back is o.k. by me. I feel hatred towards people who abuse animals not because of their religion or race. They could be anyone from any place!

Syd and Nyack, I have been looking over the post again, and I may have been to hasty in posting it. The only reason I did it was because of the animal abuse, less because of the religious issue, I didn't even look at the video, it would have probably made me sick. But it is a hate post and I really don't want to spread hate, like I said, I didn't think before I posted it. It has nothing to do with me living in Israel or being a Jew, it only has to do with the poor suffering animals, believe me. As you know I have always been moderate in my voiced opinions on care2 and do try to see both sides of the issues. Except when it comes to animals...

Giana I do appreciate that you were willing to take another look and then to post about it. In fact, I admire that. It's takes courage, humility.

But one of the reasons I avoid your posts for the most part here on Care2 is I see you commenting and noting Carol's Muslim hate posts too.

Can you imagine the outrage if there was a Christian or Jewish hate post put up on Care2?

But surely there are extremists in every group... even sadly vegan ones. :(

What would the world be like if we treated *everyone* with respect?

Cripes, I could go on forever with Golden Rules, Turning Cheeks, Eyes for Eyes, etc.

This could have been an interesting story except the hypocrisy is too much (as though no one of other religions kill or treat animals poorly...?). The hate has to stop somewhere. It might as well stop with us. Love isn't always easy but it can spread too. The only people we can change is ourselves. We can be great role models.

Again, I appreciate your willingness to take another look and consider what we were saying.

Syd, Carol is a personal friend of mine although I don't agree with her politics or conservative ideas. Sometimes she posts articles that I agree with, concerning animals or other subjects and I note them and comment on them. There is no complete right or wrong! I accept everyone, because democracy means each person can voice his opinions even though you might not agree with them. I told her so. I love her because she is a good person even though she thinks differently. As a matter of fact, I have a very religious girlfriend here in Israel, I don't agree with he concept of God but can appreciate all her other good virtues and enjoy her friendship. So there! That's it, and I just don't like people trying to force me to live by their standards. The religious here in Israel control politics and civilian life and this is devastating. Thanks for your words, and hope we can continue this positive dialogue in the future.

I saw this as animal abuse. I did not really think of religion at all. I'm jewish but I only was thinking of the animal abuse and glad it backfired. If I posted an article a re read it , I probably would have caught that afterwards and posted also. I know I would have as to not cause an issue. Someone was killing and torturing an animal here........

Thanks Giana.

Good job for the cow! More animals should kill the people who try to harm them.

I am not really up on my knowledge about the practices of this particular event, Eid al-Adha or much on Kosher ways of doing things either as mentioned in the comments earlier.

I agree that the originating post is very hateful against Muslims (there are also hateful blogs against Jews and others but was quite surprised when going to its home page and seeing what it is about).

There are some Muslims wishing for a change and debating the issue.

If animals are to be killed for human consumption it should be done as humanely as is possible. I know some say that is impossible but certainly methods must be humane as is possible since people are not going to stop eating meat any time soon including for whatever religious festival be it that one or even Christmas turkey. Factory farms are a case in point, they should be shut down.

I was a bit curious, does this Karma include anyone that just happens to eat meat? My diet is 90 percent plant based but I do eat small amounts of organic meat every now and then, non-factory farm sourced. I have seen (a few, most certainly not all) vegans saying that anyone eating meat should face the same fate as a cow in a slaughterhouse (the person was rather graphic and Care2 did a bit of deleting in that case) but there are a few comments of that sort wandering about the Care2 comment boards.

Laura Saxon said 'good job for the cow and that more people should kill the people who try to harm them'. Intriguing, I looked at her profile and here she eats steak...seafood...and her very own meatloaf.

Anyway, I will improve my knowledge about Eid al-Adha, Kosher, Halal, etc., but won't bother with being pleased by the death of someone, the news is filled with death from wars and other sources, so taking pleasure over another death is not going to do me any good. I just hope that any animal used for food is killed swiftly, not slowly.

As I said before, I have heard of ritual slaughter in the past, but am rather unfamiliar as to much of the story behind it or the details.

The United States is one of the countries that has legislation for protection of shechita (Jewish) and dhabihah (Muslim) ritual slaughter. The Humane Slaughter Act defines ritual slaughter as one of two humane methods of slaughter."

Dale, here are some info on Kosher cruelty (though I know you are not a PETA fan but they did ride this particular one).

One has to understand that only certain animals are passed for kosher certification but that is not figured out until they are already dead, and then only certain parts are allowed to be consumed. The rest, along with any excess is passed on as non-kosher meat. In a way it's Kosher garbage.

Many Muslims will eat vegetarian, even vegan (in fact many dishes in Turkey, and the middle east are indeed vegan and incredibly delicious). I've spent many months this last year in Muslim areas and the people are warm, kind, generous, eager, engaging. I am tired of hearing/reading they are less than animals. People here on Care2 will defend animals and then turn around and claim Muslims are swine who should be wiped from the earth.

My daughter told me that she realized in high school those who were the biggest bullies were those who were bullied in middle school. I am afraid Israel has fallen into this trap as well. You would think those who have been repressed to be the most compassionate.

But here is what I know. The cats and even the dogs in Istanbul are lovingly cared for and thrive. Even in Cyprus which is divided has cats on each side of the divide there and on one side they are fat, happy, confident and on the other just a wall away they are scrawny, scared, hungry, and so pathetically sad. I will let people figure which is which.

Here is a quote from another recent posting here on Care2:

The Prophet Muhammad said that "kindness to any living creature will be rewarded," yet Islam apparently requires the sacrifice of thousands of animals, often in practice performed in inexpert and cruel ways. This is all the more ironic since Muhammad also said, "sharpen your blade and spare the suffering of the animal you slaughter."

Judaism has promulgated tsar baalei hayyim, the biblically based prohibition against animal cruelty, yet Jewish authorities are oddly silent about most cruelty practised today.

Obviously religious traditions are living, dynamic entities ("seedbeds of creativity" as one theologian put it); they change, evolve, move on. They are characterised as much by forgetting as well as remembering. But, despite all the qualifiers, it is impossible not to conclude that religion has been complicit in animal cruelty and abuse.


As for the question of whether small amounts of organic meat are okay... well, that brings up lots of other questions that I would love to hear your considered answer on sometime.

For instance, which animals then do we kill and eat? How do we decide that? Would you eat one of your cats? That is the question that I was asked that changed me overnight.

How much do you really know about the specific animal you eat? Is it just fancy feel-good catch-phrases? Humane, free-range, natural... most of those mean little to nothing.

Plus not everyone is eating organic or pasture-raised obviously as now over 99% are raised in factory/CAFO conditions. Free-range only means not stuffed in tiny battery-cages but it still means super crowded buildings with artificial light and horrendous smells where chickens regularly die everyday and rot there in amongst those living having had their beaks ground off so they won't damage each other.

And no matter how well they are raised, no matter how good their life, by law they end up at the same slaughterhouse as every other animal.

If you are willing to go spend a day in a slaughterhouse, doing the work, putting the animals in line for their deaths, gutting, cutting them up, then you are in fact bearing witness to that which you are causing for them and perhaps you have earned that plate of flesh a bit more.

But why not start with these films to begin with as it's not just animals who suffer but people too:

Blood, Sweat. & Takeaways (BBC):

Fowl Play (where over 99% of eggs come from not just in cartons but processed foods too):

And Earthlings:

Would love to hear your thoughts after viewing, and thanks for being willing to consider.

"Sacrificing" animals for religious reasons, whether kosher-style or by any other means, is barbaric and should cease! That's one of the reasons why I am vegetarian, the others being health-related and concern for the environment. There should be more of us! Talk with your family and friends!
