Marine Le Pen Says Sarkozy Forces Halal Meat on Parisians

JewishPress Logo

The Guardian reports that French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen switched her campaign back to immigration on Sunday, by claiming all meat in Paris was halal, as she tried to head off President Nicolas Sarkozy’s attempts to lure her supporters.

At a congress of her National Front party in Lille, Le Pen said she had proof that all meat in Paris was halal and that she would lodge legal complaints against distributors for misleading consumers.

“This situation is a real deception and the government has been fully aware of it for months,” she told reporters at the conference. “All the abattoirs in the Paris region sell halal meat without exception.”

The main meat industry association, Interbev, denied the allegation and said most meat in Paris was not slaughtered under halal or kosher practices.

    Since the Creator gave the Hebrews a kosher diet, it seems logical to follow, although it is not incumbant upon gentiles. Kosher slauterhouses lose more than 11% of it’s meat because it was found to have a defect. If a chicken gets bruised, it’s not kosher. They check all the animals organs and they don’t all pass the test. So Parisian gentiles can have the finest meat, but they don’t have to separate milk from meat unless they want gastric problemss. It doesn’t seem like a bad thing to follow the Creator’s advice. It’s a privilege, but more expensive because of the loss of unkosher animals.
