JUST IN TIME FOR THANKSGIVING. I have just learned that the turkeys so many Americans enjoy for the holidays are certified Islamic-blessed, halal-slaughtered birds. (See videos of graphically brutal, inhumane, Muslim Halal Slaughter methods below)
ATLAS SHRUGS is reporting that Butterball has now scrubbed the ‘HALAL CERTIFIED’ claim from their website home page. They are still selling Halal turkeys, they just aren’t going to tell you they are.
Apparently, they not only have scrubbed the ‘HALAL CERTIFIED’ from their homepage, they have scrubbed the whole webpage.

Here’s my experience today.
I then, went to Publix. I scoured the labels of the Butterball turkeys. No sign anywhere of halal cert.
Now, to register complaints with the USDA- How DARE they!!!!

I just called Butterball. They’ve been receiving calls all day regarding this issue. I told them I refuse to finance terrorism (which is exactly what they are doing) and am against halal animal cruelty.
They’re tallying the phone calls and reporting to their CEO.
