A regional politician in Austria defended a plan to limit access to kosher meat, conditioning its sale on permits that would be individually issued to observant Jews.
The Wiener Zeitung daily reported Tuesday about the draft decree in the state of Lower Austria, one of nine states that make up the federal Republic of Austria. Gottfried Waldhäusl, the cabinet minister in the state government of Lower Austria who is in charge of animal welfare and several other portfolios, defended the plan as necessary from an animal welfare point of view.
*** The Wiener Zeitung did not say whether the draft decree extends also to halal meat as well as kosher meat.

That it would drive up costs is probably an unintended consequence. Not.
I wonder if the guy is all for restricting Halal to only REGISTERED Muslims?
If I’m a Jew in Europe I’m not registering up for any state-sponsored program.
I’m just saying....
Break out the gold stars from the 1930’s.
Wear a star to get your kosher goods.....
Just when I thought our world couldn’t get more insane...
They prove me wrong.
If your a Jew still in Europe, your crazy.
Yes....they should have left the continent. Imagine being a Jew in France these days?
Yeah, put your jews in a database, that’s the ticket.
Austrian Nazis were so over-the-top, the German Nazis had to tell them to take it down a notch.
Als sie die Juden holten,
habe ich geschwiegen;
ich war ja kein Jude ... Martin Niemöller
They could use tattoo for convenience ya know.
Wouldn’t it be easier if they just wore some sort of visible symbol on their clothing?
Are you sure?
They might even throw in a nice Gold Star for your convenience, so the deli can serve you better /s
You know, if you are an Austrian Jew, and they want you to register....
The more Germany and Austria act like this, the more I am inclined to hope Russia annexes them in a brutal way.
They'd probably use some sneaky method, too - like a grocery "loyalty card".
When I was assigned to Mannheim in the mid-1980s, during the season of nuclear protests in Germany, I wrote a letter to the editor of the Stars and Stripes, in which I advocated letting the Soviets take Western Europe, particularly Germany. My basic point was that the Europeans are ungovernable and Russia would have spent its treasure and manpower just keeping control of the place. Plus it would have taught the Europeans a lesson by showing them the difference between the "rule" of the Americans in Europe and the "rule" of Russians.
I was surprised that it was printed in the Stars and Stripes and I received responses from the American ambassador to Germany, a couple of German generals, and some back-bencher in the German parliament, all contesting my statements and saying how wonderful the German .. and European .. citizenry was, and how much they "loved" the Americans.
Needless to say, my opinions weren't changed then and have only gotten stronger over the years. Additionally, in the 1980s, I made an exception for Britain. That is no longer true ... let them all go down together.
Illinois Nazis are the wurst.
