The Palace of Westminster has rejected demands to serve halal meat: "We won't eat halal meat, say MPs and peers who reject demands to serve it at Westminster."
MPs don't want to eat halal (and understandably so), but Americans are forced to — unwittingly, of course, but forced to nonetheless, because halal meat does not have to be labeled halal if it is not being sold as halal. Pointing out this glaring violation of consumer (and non-Muslims') rights out draws reams of scorn and derision from the Islamic supremacists and their leftist tools and puppets. Back in November the jihad-aligned media was rabid when I exposed halal turkeys being sold without being marked halal.
Most non-Muslims would reject eating halal if they knew the bismalla allahu akbar was said over the meat (much the way allahu akbar is wailed when infidels are being slaughtered as well).
In halal slaughter, each and every animal is offered in prayer as a sacrifice to Allah. Some imams are so lame as to play a tape recording of the prayer on the kill line as they sleep in the office. But each animal is a sacrifice to an idol. So there is no question in halal slaughter that non-muslims who find this problematic would consider it food sacrificed to idols. Again the bottom line is that without the labeling, there is no way to know for sure whether the meat you are buying is halal or not.
The meat is only marked halal or kosher if it is being marketed as such, but the rest of the product slaughtered in that way is not being labeled. For example:
An Egyptian customer wants 2000 lbs halal chicken leg quarters. To meet that order, an entire shift of 100,000 chickens are slaughtered halal. 2000 lbs of leg quarters from that shift are labeled halal and sent to that Egyptian customer. The remaining 498,000 lbs of halal slaughtered chicken are sent to their regular customers unlabeled as having been slaughtered halal. The buyers of the other 498,000 lbs have absolutely no idea that it was slaughtered halal, as it is not required to be labeled as such, since it isn't being sold as such. What we are asking for is that the identity of ALL of the product slaughtered halal be maintained and labeled as such. Since the halal portion of the process is the kill step, the entire carcass becomes halal. Not labeling product that was slaughtered halal as such is "false and misleading labeling." This is one of SIOA's initiatives in the first quarter of 2012: to make sure that halal meat is labeled halal. I will be updating shortly on our progress. Help us fight — go here.
I discuss this extensively in my book, Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.

The Palace of Westminster has rejected demands to serve halal meat in its restaurants.
Muslim MPs and peers have been told they cannot have meat slaughtered in line with Islamic tradition because the method – slitting an animal’s throat without first stunning it – is offensive to many of their non-Muslim colleagues.
The stance has infuriated some parliamentarians who have eaten meat in the Palace’s 23 restaurants and cafes, having been assured that it was halal.
Lord Ahmed of Rotherham said: ‘I did feel misled. I think a halal option should be made available.’
In 2010, the Mail on Sunday revealed schools, hospitals and restaurants were serving halal meat to unwitting customers.
Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Somerfield and the Co-op all said they stocked meat slaughtered according to Islamic tradition without letting customers know.
Fast-food chains including Domino’s Pizza, Pizza Hut, KFC, Nando’s and Subway are also using halal meat without telling customers, it was revealed.
Members of the Church of England have complained that the spread of halal meat was 'effectively spreading Sharia law' across Britain.
