McDonald's Goes Muslim and Halal. Where's PETA?

In Australia, if you go to these McDonald's you have to eat halal meat. Does McDonald's know what 'halal' butchery means. It is a barbaric way to kill a cow, totally stupid (see Stupid Islam below.) Where's PETA? Why aren't they up in arms about this? Western butcher techniques are far more humane and PETA is up in arms about that. So why the silence about the grotesque hilal butchering of cows? And why must I, as a person who despises Islam, not be informed that the cow my burger came from was blessed in the name of Islam, which wants to kill me (since I don't plant to convert but fight)? OK McDonald's, fine, I won't eat at your restaurant any longer.

SUNDAY HERALD - AUSTRALIA

Muslim Mac attack Kelvin Healey



McDONALD'S latest bid to attract more customers -- Muslim fast-food lovers -- has caused uproar among customers.

The fast-food chain has introduced halal products at two Melbourne restaurants, significantly boosting sales.
However some non-Muslim customers are furious they were not told their hamburger meat was slaughtered and blessed in accordance with Islamic rules laid down in the Koran.

McDonald's consulted Muslim leaders before introducing halal products at its Brunswick East and St Albans stores.

Halal meat is from animals that have been killed facing Mecca and blessed using the name of Allah.

Brunswick East store assistant manager Nicholas Yacoub said the move had attracted a surge of new customers.

"It has pretty much doubled our sales," Mr Yacoub said.

The store does not tell drive-through customers about the change and has only one small sign inside advertising the move.

Coburg resident Miriam McLennan was stunned to discover the hamburger she bought from the Brunswick East store was blessed.

"Just as a Muslim would not want to eat anything that isn't halal . . . I should have my rights to eat normal, ordinary food that hasn't been blessed," she said.

A Catholic Church spokesman said non-Muslims deserved to know if the food was halal before buying. But he said there was no biblical reason for Christians to avoid halal food.

A McDonald's spokeswoman said customers who did not want halal food should buy from any of its other stores.

Good attitude for advanced customer relations: send your customers to their other stores if they don't like it.

McDonalds said, if we don't like Halal meat we should buy from their other stores.

Oh yeah, how about this. I say, fuck you McDonalds. How about I not eat at any of your fucking stores.

how about halal bacon buger?

i wonder how many muzzes would eat that???

The Anti-Jihadist said...

Aint no bacon on the burgers at Muzzie McDs...sorry to say. As a matter of fact, the Malaysian muzzies call the burgers 'beef burgers' just so that there's no misunderstanding like that evil kafir term "hamburger" might cause.

Frankly, a 'halal' burger tastes the same to me as a 'haram' burger. And I dont wanna think about how the cow ended up on my table too deeply. I'm a non veggie-type and intend to stay that way.

I do miss having pork on my 'beef burger.' Fortunately the nearby kafir states have McDs, et al with those offerings on their menus.

hi there people, i along with most of the 1 billion muslims all around the world (thats right muslim haters, 1 BILLION!!!) dont care what you guys think of islam. islam is a peaceful religion and welcomes everyone to live their life the way they want. most of the comments posted on this site show us that their are extremeists and fundamentalists everywhere, wether its in australia or iraq, wether their christian or muslim.you talk as if us muslims have been banging on about a halal mcdonalds. we realy couldnt care less, so why blame islam? so i invite all my christian, jewish, hindu and all other non muslim brothers and sisters to learn more about islam before you make the comments you make. there must be something good about islam as it is the worlds fastest growing religion. may allah bring peace and blessings to you and your families and help you guys see happiness and love.

I know this is an old post, but still:
so you think its more humane to electrically shock animals than to slaughter them?
kosher is done the same way as halal, and orthodox christians 'used' to do their meat the same way http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/2977086.stm - thats why it's HALAL to eat their meat.
please get some education before you write any more of these totally racist and embarrassingly MIS informed posts.
halal / kosher is more than just slitting the throats of animals, the animals are treated much better from birth till death. don't you watch tv.? how do people breed non-kosher / non-halal animals?

I have friends who are muslim and I am of christianity. I fully agree with McDonalds having halal meat.

What is the diffrence in eating halal meat and normal meat?
I tell you nothing, it is the same. I have no worries eating halal meat.

All McDonalds is doing is giving muslims the chance to eat there food aswell.

It just goes to show we have alot of racist people in our world.

Well done McDonalds for giving muslims a chance!!

The so-called 'prophet' of Islam was a mass murderer, multiple rapist, bigamist with 15 'wives', and a paedophile, who 'married' a NINE YEAR OLD GIRL, when he was FIFTY FOUR.
What do you brainwashed cult-members say about that?
And of course, the 'peace loving' muslims adopt the most evil way to kill animals, so they can eat them.
One cow is worth all one BILLION of you retards' lives. Your arrogance is disgusting, but then, you're all too stupid and backward to see that there is something wrong with you.
God told me that your 'prophet' was a liar.
Why don't you believe me?
Why do you believe HIM?
Oh, I forgot: I didn't form a group of bandits and go around murdering thousands of innocent people so I could steal from them, rape their mothers, sisters and daughters, and I'm not insane...
What a shame the same cannot be said for your piece of shit 'prophet'...

What an asshole. It's the "fastest growing religion" because you sick, ugly perverts breed like rabbits, and the Jews have invited you, in your millions, into WHITE countries, where you live off OUR hard work (i.e. welfare).
"May Allah bring blessings to you" - you knob. Who is "allah"? Who is this "allah" you nutcases keep talking about? Where is he?
Tell me: how did 'allah' manage to 'talk' to Mo-HAM-HEAD, and how do you KNOW Mo-HAM-HEAD wasn't lying? I realise that asking a muslim to THINK is a bit too much, but do have a try, you cretin...

wow you guys have no idea about what islam is. i would reccomend you read a couple of books before you post comments like these about islam. shitheads. wow. and read about halal and how you guys slaughter your animals compared to our, more peaceful methods.

Anonymous said...

Animals slaughtered halal are not blessed in the name of "islam" but in the name of God. The same God that Christians worship and the same God that Jews bless their Kosher animals for. It is the God that Abraham and Jesus worshiped. If you are an atheist I can understand your aversion to halal or kosher, but if you are a Christian it makes no sense to hate something specifically because it was dedicated to the same deity that you worship!

Although "racism" may be a linguisticly inaccurate term the mindset is still the same. Railing against halal, but ignoring kosher is a bit biased. The slaughter is very similar and both methods come under fire by animal rights groups.

I do agree with the general premise that customers must be informed of where their food comes from and what ingredients that food contains. Many vegetarians and hindus were outraged to find out the fries contain beef fat.

I have to say that your view of how cows are killed either way is barbaric. Let me see in the US they usually beat the cow's head with a mallot in the center forehead or shock the shit out of them. So to take a knif that is four times the width the neck that is razor sharp and slice the jugular is not quiet so horrendous especially if the animal is not allowed to even see the knife prior to being butcherd.

As a CHRISTIAN Mr. Anonymous...If we are truly to follow the bible, as i know it is indicated to butcher the animal in much the same way...it's called KOSHER. I hate when people say stupid crap and don't even think they know it all. As i have studied islam, both Sunnite and Shiite, I see your comments and they show your ignorance. If anything the prophet married women who had been left with out a husband in a time in which women depended on men for their lively hood. No one wanted to marry them so those women were left poor and destitute. As far as the 9 year old girl...she was contracted at 9 but was not allowed to the prophets home until she was a woman and why? Because in Islam it is forbidden to sleep with a young child due to the fact that her body is still growing. I don't know why idiots such as yourself assume that marriage means sex all of a sudden. Marriage is a contract and it "Married" clans together. Get your shit straight. If we really want to get down to it...please go see the CRAP! that is living in the Vatican! Pedophile fucks!

wrong... she was "given" at six! and TAKEN at nine!
She was still playing with dolls.
Read your own filthy koran.

Felling of love is RAPE ... that is what aisha got at nine! she was "given" at six!
read the filth yourself.

and i might add that her father had to be "talked into" allowing it. (he must have been smarter than most)

Islam is very cruel and full of hate.
