Slaughtering Kosher Meat Illegal in Greece
By Micah Halpern

Wednesday October 27, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

Jewish ritual slaughter of meat is a central component of Jewish life.

Over the past few years there has been a move to outlaw Jewish ritual slaughter of animals. The reason given for promoting this move – which has already won in court cases, is that Jewish law prohibits stunning the animal before slaughter.

Not stunning the animal before slaughter, is considered animal abuse.

Today, the highest court in Greece ruled that Jewish ritual slaughter of animals was animal abuse and illegal.

The Greek ruling echoes last year’s decision from the highest court in the European Union. According to that ruling, any region that prohibited slaughtering an animal without first stunning it, was illegal.

The rulings directly impact the lives of both Jews and of Muslims who must, according to their religious belief, eat kosher and hallal meats.

These rulings make an obvious point: animal rights take precedence over, and have become more important, than religious rights and religious rites.
