Muslim and Jewish organizations in Europe are putting aside differences over the Middle East conflict to team up against a proposal by European Union (EU) lawmakers that would require ritually slaughtered meat to carry a label warning consumers about inhumane treatment to animals.
the amendment would require ritually slaughtered meat to carry the warning: "Derived from animals that have not been stunned prior to slaughter.”
Animal rights activists, however, regard the method as inhumane a
“We have no objection to labeling, but if this is about food information, you have to be honest to your citizens,” Shimon Cohen, campaign director for Shechita UK, which promotes awareness of the Jewish method of slaughtering animals, told The Media Line. “When you go to a supermarket you should be able to pick up any item and see whether it’s a product of shechita, halal, gassing or electrocution.”

Hold on, don't we also treat a large amount of our slaughterhouse animals in disgusting barbaric ways? Isn't this just a case of the pot calling the kettle black? What is it exactly that they do that is worse than us?

At the end of the day isn't killing an animal barbaric? So why does it matter whether you shoot it, electricute it or slaughter it with Gods name read on it?

If you don't like halal meat or kosher food, please don't buy it and move a long.
I don't think that you got the point-the muslims and jews don't want a label,they want everyone to eat it,like it or lump it.Funny when for the last 20 years they have forced us to label food kosher/halal!

I am not the type of person who necessarily looks or cares about such labels, I care about the price and buy what's on sale . That being said, my grocery store has tons of items labeled either kosher or halal, those that do concern themselves with such labels know what religious rituals went into the slaughter, so what is wrong with this simple label? Why does it need a label to gross out all consumers?
Now if I put on my tin foil hat, I would suggest that it is another means by a group to rid the world of religious practices and ultimately religion. But who knows
