Is it just me, or does anybody else share the idea that people who wrap their whacky ideas in ethical robes, very often are deeply unethical, immoral and actually quite insensitive people.
This suggestion by the Norwegian Animal Welfare Alliance reveals the complete separation between their lofty ideals and the murky, deeply racist world view they continue to be chained by.
This comes on the heels of this weeks now world famous cartoon, which in one grotesque drawing revealed how dehumanization is an integral part of Norwegian “culture”. How many more cock-up’s on this scale before people in high places realize we have an urgent problem to address at home before attempting to shove our “humanism” down other people’s throats?

Butchers kosher slaughter
Norwegian Jews should change slaughtering methods or stop eating meat, according to Animal Welfare Alliance.

Simon Wiesenthal Center asks Norway to remove the ban on Jewish ritual slaughter. The Jewish organization called statutory prohibition antisemitic. It irritates adviser Karen Frivik in Animal Welfare Alliance.
– What I react most is that they are trying to connect this to antisemitism. The ban on kosher slaughter is exclusively created due to animal suffering, says Frivik the day.
– Gruesome mutilation
Ritual slaughter in both Islam and Judaism traditionally requires that the neck of the animal is cut across with a knife without prior stunning. While Norwegian Muslims have agreed to stun before slaughter, did not want the Jews to do the same.
– What is the main problem when one cuts the throat of the animal, is that while cutting the trachea. When flows often blood into the lungs, causing both pain and anxiety for up to a a minute and a half says Karen Frivik.
– The animals often run around after throat has been cut, with the cruel mutilation that has happened to them. Those who have seen it, think it’s absolutely horrible. And this is the reason that the European Food Safety Authority opposes kosher slaughter.
Frivik encourage Jews to follow the developments in relation to the killing of animals.
– And if not, they should simply consider to stop eating meat.
Hunting and Sami
Ervin Kohn of the Jewish community believes there is no doubt that the law which came into force in Norway in January 1930, was a law that was founded on anti-Semitic sentiments.
– It is ridiculous to questions this fact. Especially as veterinary authorities at the time supported the kosher slaughter, says Kohn.
He believes that kosher slaughter is more respectfully and humanely towards animals than industrial farming.
– In up to 20 percent of the so-called stunned animals, the stunning is not working. So this idea of stunning animals, is simply a form of self-deception.
Kohn also points out that the Norwegian tradition of hunting are exempt from the rules for anesthesia.
– Likewise, Sami slaughter method is also exempted on cultural grounds. But the Jews cannot get not exception on cultural grounds. We are 1,500 Jews in Norway, what amount of meat do we eat?
Proposes ban on import of kosher meat
The governmental Stålsett Commission proposes to maintain the ban on ritual slaughter, while it should be legal to import kosher meat. Nevertheless, Karen Frivik does not agree that it may be better to slaughter the animals in Norway, where it might be done in a more acceptable manner than in other countries.
– No, we propose that we have to stop the import of kosher meat too. Through maintaining imports you encourage animal cruelty .
According to Ervin Kohn there are only two options for Norwegian Jews if imports of kosher meat to Norway is prohibited – to become vegetarian or leave the country.
– If that’s not anti-Semitic, then I wonder what is anti-Semitic?
