Kosher Slaughter Banned in the Netherlands!!!

The Dutch Parliament just voted 116-30 in favor of a ban on both kosher (Jewish) and halal (Muslim) meat slaughtering without prior stunning of the animal. The bill still requires to be passed into a law and that probably won't happen until after summer. But there are some serious implication to this sudden restriction.(read more here).

For the muslim community, as difficult and crippling as it might be, it does not create a serious problem since animals can still be prepared according to halal laws after being stunned.
On the other hand, kosher laws are somewhat stricter and they don't allow for the stunning of the animals prior to being slaughtered.
This would force both community but especially the Jewish community to either import their kosher meat or stay away from meat altogether.
If the law passes, the Netherlands will become the second recent country after New Zealand to outlaw kosher and halal slaughtering. Switzerland, Scandinavian and Baltic countries have similar laws in effect that go back to pre WWII and are most likely based on anti-semitism.
As a matter of fact, the Dutch Jewish community is very concerned as they wonder what will be banned next...circumcision...Shabbat keeping?
It is even more frightening when we remember that the first law that Nazi Germany enacted against the Jewish people was the banning of Kosher meat preparation. Yes...It is too close for comfort within the Dutch Jewish community and this should be very alarming to Jews around the world as well as those who call themselves their friends.

The Jews continue to be used as the "Scapegoats of humanity", yet God who doesn't wish for any to perish (2 Peter 3:9), has place the Jews in the center of His plan for mankind. The ones God calls "the apple of my eye" in Zechariah 2:8 have a very special place in God's heart and should be recognized as such. Anybody messing with the Jewish people cannot call themselves a Christian (Psalm 83:1-5) and we must all remember that when it comes to hurting His chosen people (Isaiah 43:20), It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Hebrews 10:31).

I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you. Genesis 12:3

Comic Book Anti-Semitism Not so Subtle!

At first, one could think that this story was taken straight out of last week Saturday Night Live line-up. It could almost be funny if it wasn't so blatantly antisemitic.
An aryan looking blond superhero with yellow cape and blue tights, named "Foreskin Man" is coming to the rescue of innocent babies being circumcised by evil looking "Monster Mohel".
The mohel (rabbi certified to perform circumcision) appears with claws, clutching scissors and taking pleasure in circumcising babies, depicted in an cultish set-up

There is nothing subtle about this. It is antisemitic on so many levels that one wonders if it wasn't taken straight out of Joseph Goebbel's archives of Nazi propaganda. The ADL rightfully said that the character "Monster Mohel" portrayed mohels as "rapacious, bloodthirsty and bent on harming children."
As if this wasn't enough, there is also another character depicted as a scalpel armed bloody brute helping the mohel in his torture of innocent children. His name is Dr. Mutilator.
This whole comic book project (book, cards and merchandise for sale on their website) was born out of a growing concern about child circumcision. There is a group in San Francisco (www.mgmbill.org) working on passing a law to ban male circumcision until the age of 18. While they have the right to express their disagreement regarding the practice of child circumcision, the antisemitic character assassination attached to the topic is boldly taking antisemitism back to the pre-Holocaust caustic levels.
What I find very interesting is that after reading the Bill proposed to the U.S. congress in January of 2011 (www.mgmbill.org/usmgmbill.htm) , I found absolutely no mention of Jews, Judaism or religious circumcision anywhere. The bill appears to be a generic attempt at stopping an act that the signers deem to be an unnecessary painful mutilation in general, so tell me why in the world do they ONLY use a rapacious, blood-thirsty and evil looking caricature of a rabbi to convey their message? And why do they add a religious theme to it?
Another question we must ask ourselves is this: "Why aren't muslims mentioned or used in the comic book since they practice circumcision as well?" How about "Evil Imam" as a character? Is the creator of the comic book afraid of repercussions from CAIR or the muslim community?
I am afraid that the reason why muslims are absent is too obvious, they are not the target.
It is clear that the target is not so much circumcision as it is the Jewish people.

Yet another attempt at demonizing the Jewish People in the eyes of the uneducated masses!
What is next, forbidding the manufacturing of Passover matzah because somebody has claimed that Christian blood was used in the process? Well, I wouldn't put it passed the liberals!
As our world is making its way through postmodernism, it seems that for the Jewish people, it is more like the middle ages all over again!
