On the ban live export site is a video which an Egyptian vet gave to Animals Australia.

It is one of the worst displays of abject suffering I have ever seen.

My letter to Egypt:

I am writing in horror and disgust to bring your attention to the suffering of animals imported from Australia to Egyptian slaughterhouses where animals undergo barbaric and unnecessary suffering whilst being crushed in slaughter boxes. For gentle creatures like Jacob, a white ox who escaped the confines of one such box, there was no mercy shown. His eyes were stabbed, his tendons slashed and his throat cut....ALL WHILE CONSCIOUS. The world has witnessed in horror what happens to innocent creatures such as Jacob who are treated carelessly and brutally in your country's abattoirs.....and the brutality shown these animals must stop.

In April 2013 Egyptian vet Dr Abdelwahab alerted Animals Australia to footage showing shocking abuse of Australian cattle in two Egyptian abattoirs. He described the plight of animals across his country and explained the urgent need for stronger laws to protect animals in Egypt.

Recent footage taken at Sokhna Abattoir clearly demonstrates the systemic cruelty inflicted on Australian animals exported live to Egypt aggravated by inherently cruel Australian government-approved restraint boxes. In slaughterhouses across Egypt both local and imported sheep and cattle are subjected to brutal treatment.

The suffering of a gentle white steer we named Jacob, killed at Ismailia Abattoir, perhaps represents most starkly why change for animals is so desperately needed in Egypt. In the video taken of this creature's horrific death, Jacob's eyes are stabbed repeatedly; his leg tendons slashed as he bellows in torment. And after all this, his throat is cut while he is still conscious.

I am sure, like me, you were shocked by the cruelty uncovered in the Egyptian abattoirs that receive Australian animals.

This footage has made headlines in Australia and internationally. I understand it was highlighted in Egyptian media as well.

With people around the world now watching to see how your government will react, I would urge you to take this opportunity to pass and enforce laws protecting animals from cruelty.

Such positive action would be widely applauded throughout the international community. Show the world that Egypt is a country of the 21st century; a progressive country of humility and compassion toward all living beings.

I did not.....could the video either. It's not's honesty. The stills and the words explaining the terms of his death and torture were enough to spurn me into action and send a mass email. Let us not forget, ever, the suffering of Jacob and others like him.

I share with my children a story called "Great Joy The Self-Respecting Ox" by Rafe Martin....a story in which a gentle ox named Great Joy teaches the Brahmin who raised him powerful lessons involving love, loyalty, friendship and mutual respect. It is a powerful and inspirational piece.

When I heard of the abuses that go on against these gentle teachers in Egypt and other parts of the world, it ripped my heart out.

"Lord, we know not what we do. Please forgive us."

"How we treat the weakest among us is how we will be judged," is wisely stated by Mehmet Oz, MD. Indeed, the truth could not be stated any clearer.

God Bless Jacob. God Bless All Animals. WE are the WEAK. THEY are the STRONG.

They don't care about their country fellows health.They only care about filling their pockets with money. The importers and some corrupted vets are behind this exaggerated campaign

Noted, letter sent, and item shortly to be forwarded. I have already this morning written a comment on the confiscation of dogs in Iran. In that comment, I pointed out that the Koran teaches a) that animals are in submission to humans, and b) that therefore they must be fed, housed, and cared for. I wrote in my letter to the Minister that this makes the current treatment of animals in Egypt heretical. I find this especially shameful because while the Bible states that man has dominion over animals, it does not state, as the Koran does, that this means animals must be cared for. That is why fundamentalist ministers in the U.S. have in courts of law defended cock-fighting. Their position is simply that as man has dominion over animals they can do anything they want to them. And it would seem from what we see going on in these days that not only fundamentalists hold to this view. Too many Christians misinterpret that passage in the Bible. Too many muslims are simply ignoring the Koran.

Abdesalam, I have seen hundreds of pictures from all around the Middle East showing the lack of care and concern over the welfare of animals in slaughter. They obviously enjoy the pain and suffering they inflict. NOTHING that you can say will ever change the attitude of Muslims to these abuses nor change the facts. In fact, these wonderful people who claim to be so religious ignore the Koran (taken from Judaism) where they are commanded to protect animals from suffering. But those who use and abuse women and children in such terrible ways are unlikely to treat animals with respect.

Perhaps you should do something instead of trying to justify it. Start with your zoo which has been thrown out of the international zoo group because of the cruelties and abuses perpetrated on innocent animals.

Someone needs to find the passage in the Koran (and the Torah for that matter) about the reason behind slaughtering an animal while conscious. I wonder if this was initially meant to be less barbaric than say China's method of beating a dog before killing it- maybe in the old days they thought this was humane to quickly slit the cow's throat so it would bleed out in a few minutes? Obviously, the most humane thing is to not kill cattle for food at all- but someone might be able to convince Halal and Kosher types that quickly rendering an animal unconscious before slaughter should be okay for any religion...

I did some research on bovine worship in ancient Egypt prior to sending this post to all of my friends in hopes of buttressing the ancient reverence for these creatures as compared to their horrifying treatment in Egyptian slaughterhouses today....but no such luck. "Reverence" is a relative term.

The more I read, the less I had to compare. Ancient Egyptians certainly worshiped bovines and even named some Gods after them. But bulls were slaughtered in large numbers on hunting excursions and cows were systematically and ritually slaughtered to satisfy the deities.

That having been revealed, there is absolutely NO JUSTIFICATION for the killing of these beings in such a barbaric, brutal and horrific manner. To stab a being's eyes blind them and slash their tendons before slitting their throat and hacking away at them ALL WHILST BEING FULLY CONSCIOUS is UNCONSCIONABLE.

I don't justify what the Ancient Egyptians did during sacrifice, or any ritual sacrifice anywhere in the world at all. But not correctly slaughtering the animal during ritual in Ancient Egypt was was punishable by death. At least there was some systematic attempt to perform the ritual with minimal stress to the animal.

These slaughterhouses are abusing their "right" to kill these animals and slaughtering them in a manner that defies reason and shames their nation. Live export should be banned completely. The world should turn vegan. But until this happens, no animal on earth should be made to suffer like Jacob did. PERIOD.

Muslims seem to take pride in slaughtering animals so that they die terrified and in agony, screaming and writhing in pain for as long as possible. Countries like Australia send their live animals to Muslim countries where there is no such thing as ‘humane’ slaughter.

And before we get the inevitable claims that Kosher is just like Halal…consider this:

Kosher vs. Halal:

Kosher – requires the animal be slaughtered quickly and humanely, strictly forbidding cruel slow methods like strangulation.

Halal – requires the animal be bled out in agony while sick people who get off watching that kind of thing have a “festival.”

Kosher – requires the blood be drained cleanly from the *carcass* of the humanely killed animal, removing toxins released from cells into the bloodstream at the moment of death from the meat.

Halal –leaves the meat *filled* with toxins released at the moment of death because the blood is removed while the animal is dying and therefore is not present in sufficient quantities to remove those last toxins.

Kosher – contains little to no cortisol or norepenepherine (two stress chemicals that are similar enough from mammal to mammal to cross species) because the animal to be killed is treated well before it is put down and is generally not frightened as it is put down (because in a truly kosher slaughter situation, animals cannot be slaughtered in a sequential fashion, as the waste of one could contaminate the next, so they are not exposed to the “scent of death” the way non-kosher culls are)

Halal – animals watch other animals die during the blood letting festival, smelling their fear and raising their own stress. These stress chemicals “marinate” the meat in hormones known to raise levels of aggression and violence in nearly all mammal species (including human).

Kosher – requires cooking the cleanly drained meat completely, cooking any remaining stress chemicals into oblivion.

Halal – allows for a surprising range of cooking methods, including even some “tar tar” dishes (raw or nearly raw), allowing for the spread of disease and chemicals and hormones that were not removed by the idiotic slow bloodletting practice and half-measure cooking.

Kosher – the spinal cord is sectioned thus cutting off pain to the brain. Therefore, no suffering or terror.

Halal – spinal cord left intact.

Also remember that kosher and the rules for animal compassion came into being when the general population were sacrificing their first born children to Moloch every 5 years, throwing them into a fiery pit. I cannot imagine how those children must have felt!

Kosher animals must be reared in good conditions, none of the factory farming that supplies most slaughterhouses in most countries (including the US). No sick or injured animals are allowed to be slaughtered unlike most slaughterhouses especially the US.

Also remember that stunning, unless done correctly, does NOT kill the animal, and most animals are not stunned or stunned properly. The slaughterhouse is rarely cleaned properly of all blood and that animals can smell it causing fear and distress which other animals can smell causing them fear and distress. Chickens are attached to a conveyor belt where a rotating knife cuts their throats. If they wriggle, and they all do, then their throat is not slashed properly so they are still alive when dropped into boiling water.

Halal animals have suffered during the transport and are not even carried properly to "slaughterhouses". They are torture houses, the blood is not cleaned off from anywhere and they are often left side by side to die in rows! In fact, should humans be killed like this I can imagine the courts refusing to ever allow the perpetrators to leave prison as being a risk to the general population.

Go vegan & encourage everyone you know to go vegan. We need to stop all consumption of animal products. It is something that will occur in the future and the sooner the better.

No illusion. It happen all over the world, even in countries were laws exist as nobody applies them.
No only is it inhuman but it makes bad meat. With a better treatment during their lives, transport and death, animals are less stressed, produce less toxins and meat has better flavour. So, meat lover if you really want to eat meat, you should pledge to get better treatment to animal.
And whatever live export should not been authorized on long distance. See the 8 hour campaign:

Signed with sample letter and wrote: I cant say what I really think right now, so I would like to remind you that animals are not inanimate THINGS, they are living BREATHING individuals with SOULS who LOVE, feel pain and are supposed to be living their own lives with their own families, not making you millions by torture. Since they are in your custody, may I suggest YOU take a turn and see what the animals are going through.Its only fair, yes?. Thank you.

Humans have become the animals, as animals go by instinct..humans have conscious choice and choose to be cruel....disgusting and so overwhelming and enraging

Of course I didnt watch the video, because Id go insane, as Ive already cried at the description alone.

Martin Luther King Jr. is quoted as saying, “Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
