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 animals 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 Palaces 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, Sainsburys, Tesco, Somerfield and the Co-op all said they stocked meat slaughtered according to Islamic tradition without letting customers know.
Fast-food chains including Dominos Pizza, Pizza Hut, KFC, Nandos and Subway are also using halal meat without telling customers, it was revealed.

I want eggs, I can’t afford them.
Serving halal meat means more business and more profits for Muslims who are the halal butchers and halal meat distributors. The old line British meat distributors and their employees go into decline and people lose jobs to the muzzie throat slitters. This while Muzzies laugh at how easy it was to con the infidels into eating Sharia compliant meat
Then I will refuse to buy from those places.
Lord Ahmed?? WTF??
MP’s and their bloody peers don’t want to eat halal, but they sure as hell don’t mind the rest of us eating it. People would be amazed if only they knew how much halal meat was being served in restaurants and sold in super markets.
Hey Lord Achmed, this is Britain, eat like a Brit, or FO back to crapastan where you can eat halal camel dung roasted goat eyeballs!
It’s like meeting California standards. Pretty soon, everybody is forced to it because it’s too expensive to produce to multiple standards.
I say give ‘em a ham sandwich and let ‘em go to Mecca if they want something else. Or find their own kosher deli.
“Lord” Ahmed? Good grief!
What is the big deal if meat is halal or not?It doesn’t make it un sanitary or make it taste any different. So they cut the animals throat instead of shooting it in the head, big deal!!
But if that doesn't bother, eat up.
I always get sausage on my Pizza. I didn’t know it was halal. LMAO
My dad was no Muslim , but when we killed the hogs we always slit their throats.Dad was a good butcher.We always slaughtered the hogs just before Thanksgiving.Nothing like fresh pig meat.
Well. They could always eat s-—.
Why would we not be hearing about it via massive PETA/ASPCA protests and other "animals are people too" sources. I would wager that there is much more meat that is claimaed to be halal than is actually being sold. Another non-issue as it tastes the same and we generally don't hang around slaughter houses which would be a turn off even with the "humane" methods of getting us out meat to the table. Non-hunters, who have never had to dress a carcass are more likely to react negatively - even the best hunters will wound an anmial, have to track it down, then kill it from up close - the animal suffers and fears more than any halal-killed animal. We are too removed from the reality of our own existence - the continuing demascualtion of Men will kill us all.
In 2001, OBAMA SPONSORS ILLINOIS SENATE BILL 750 CREATING THE “HALAL FOOD ACT”, providing for inspections by the Department of Agriculture to ensure that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law.
This act plays into Islamization. Here’s how it works and how Halal food plays a role. http://theobamafile.com/_terror/Islamization.htm
They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).
Exposure of yet more of the creeping sharia and stealth jihad advancing in the U.S. and Europe:
The latest submission to Islam comes to us from the meat industry in both Europe and the United States.
I love it for once its not the muslims that are offended. Whats good for the goose is good for the gander. Wonder how the muslims feel when someone is offended by them and tells them so. :O)
I won't buy from them.
