How many of you know that only the forequarter of a Kosher killed animal, one that has had it's throat cut whilst terrified, is actually Kosher?
Steaks, Topside , Silverside and rump is Non Kosher and put on sale without any markings.
You are eating brutally slaughtered animals, with no labelling required at all.
A simple question. You are going to have your throat cut.
Would you rather have it done when you where unconscious and did not know it was happening, or would you rather be forced upside down, in terror and feel the knife slitting your throat.
That is what Artful Todger is defending.
Slaughtering for the kosher market does NOT involve inverting a beast in the UK. Moreover beasts slaughtered by a Shochet MUST be treated very carefully if the meat is not to be declared to be treif*.
Given he cost of a beast intended or the kosher market be last thing that is wanted is for it to be unacceptable!
Now the chalif the knife used. To start with it ain't no plain old chiv.
It's specially made from finest steel that is laminated in a steel matrix in a similar way to a Japanese katana or samurai sword. A razor sharp edge so sharp that it could be used to shave with.
It has to be. The edge must be free from any blemish in order to ensure a clean slice through the vital structures so that there is an instantaneous drop in blood pressure that results in immediate loss of consciousness.
The blade edge must be inspected prior to each use and is tested by sliding a finger nail down the edge to ensure there is no blemish. If there were to be a blemish the beast would be declared treif*.
One aspect about the preparation of meat for the kosher market that is not often realised is that although the despatching of the beast must follow the letter and the spirit of the laws of kashrut the subsequent butchering of the beast can be undertaken by even Goyim if trained as to how the carcass should be further prepared.
Since to a Goy the importance of kashrut is of less importance than to a Frummer Yiddle it's entirely possible that sometimes they will be less diligent!
Then there is the matter of pre-stunning. For jewish people it's in order to ensure that a rapid, stress free, pain free, and more instantaneous slaughter that pre-stunning is not undertaken.
The religious prohibition could easily be got around by combining a stunning device and a chalif but the insult to the brain of the beast would kick in first.
(Wanna buy a Chalif? Don't expect to pay less than a grand for a decent example!)
Not an excuse, there's enough flavours of Judaism to cope with pre-stunning if it was just a matter of orthodoxy but it isn't.
Let's keep in mind the events at the Masada and the method decided upon to die rather than fall into slavery to the Romans at best.
Now halal. The only similarity with Shechita and Zabiha is exsanguination. There all similarities end and brutality kicks in.
* Treif means torn. The word derives from treifah which means having been attacked or otherwise injured.
