Point to ponder: Non-Muslims in the West are forced to eat halal meat, daily, all with the sanction of the government (both here and the UK). A great deal of meat sold in this country is halal but is not labeled is such. It’s a scandal — but an established practice: meat packers generally do not separate halal meat from non-halal meat, and do not label halal meat as such. We attempted to right that wrong. My organization, AFDI, filed a filed a citizen petition with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, asking that a regulation be enacted to ensure that all halal food be clearly labeled as halal. But the U.S. Department of Agriculture has for four years now ignored, shelved, or just plain refused to rule on our petition.
Dearborn Public Schools have adopted an all Halal meat policy Non-Muslim children are forced to eat halal meat. There may be any number of reasons why people don’t want halal meat. They may object to halal slaughter for humanitarian reasons or because they are concerned for animal rights. Christians consider it meat sacrificed to idols, as discussed in the New Testament. Jews are obliged to keep kosher, not eat halal food. Still others may object to the fact that many halal certification organizations have links to jihad terror groups.

Dearborn school halal policy is discriminatory against non-Muslim students of numerous perspectives. But parental opposition to halal policy is met with a wall of intractability by the Dearborn school sharia Superintendent and compliant lackeys. https://t.co/7ledtnXkQJ

Judge Attacks Foster Parents After Muslim Children Westernised and Ate Bacon
By: Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, 11 Nov 2019:
A judge has expressed her “abhorrence” at foster parents caring for children taken from an abusive Muslim household, because they Westernised and ate bacon.
Judge Angela Finnerty said she “shared the abhorrence of the [biological] parents” over the fact the children were served bacon and eggs for breakfast, according to The Sun, which further reports that “One of the children also ate a hot dog at a fair.”
The biological father of the children accused the council of “playing God” by failing to ensure they continued to follow Islam, somewhat counter-intuitively.
“One matter that sits terribly with me is that they have been feeding my children bacon. You yourself told [the foster parents] not to feed my children pork products,” he complained indignantly to the judge.
The children were taken into care in the first place as a result of concerns about the father violently abusing the children’s mother.
It was alleged that the foster parents told the children “If we make bacon, you eat it,” but they objected that the children had simply Westernised and, according to The Sun, “turned their backs on religion”.
Judge Finnerty took a stand on behalf of Islam at her court in York, however, declaring that she “shared the abhorrence of the [biological] parents” that their children had eaten bacon sandwiches, and suggesting that they may have Westernised due to “their cultural and religious needs not having been sufficiently nurtured in foster care”.
Council Forced to Continue Supplying Non-Stun Halal to Christian Schools https://t.co/lWvfEPDnHC

It has become increasingly common for non-Muslims in the United Kingdom to be essentially forced to eat halal meat, slaughtered in accordance with Islamic religious principles which many non-Muslims object to for ethnical reasons.
For example, Breitbart London reported in 2017 that the Queen Elizabeth Hospital was only serving halal meat, and in 2018 that in many schools “all of the meat served is non-stunned” with “no alternative options” without “the knowledge or consent of the majority of pupils and parents”.
Indeed, in one council area, a democratic vote to stop serving halal meat in schools — including Christian schools — was overturned after a council of mosques threatened a to organise a school boycott and launch a judicial review.
There have also been cases of non-Muslim children being penalised for objecting to Islamic food practices, with a vegetarian schoolgirl who described halal as “inhumane” in an exam paper being failed for “obscene racial comments” earlier this year.
A university student also claimed to have been suspended for describing halal as “cruel” and “inhumane” in February.
