RUBASHKIN SCANDAL: PETA Calls For Independent Inspections

PETA is calling for independent inspections to make sure Rubashkin is following Humane Slaughter regulations:

The group vowed to appeal to the U.S. Attorney’s Office that
declined to prosecute the case, call on the Agriculture Department to
fire investigators who failed to enforce kosher standards and intensify
calls on the Orthodox Union, which oversees kosher operations at the
plant, to allow what PETA calls “legitimate animal welfare experts”
into the plant to monitor the process.

“This is the least the
O.U. should be doing if it takes its own claims about kosher being
humane seriously,” a PETA spokesman, Bruce Friedrich, said in a e-mail.

It’s hard to argue with PETA’s demand. Of course, I’m sure the OU, KAJ, and Rubashkin will.

    “This is the least the O.U. should be doing if it takes its own claims about kosher being humane seriously,” a PETA spokesman, Bruce Friedrich, said in a e-mail.

    That quote says it all. Friedrich is saying that kosher slaughter is not humane. The OU claims it’s humane, but we all know it’s not. Just look at the tape. That’s what he’s saying. And as long as he keeps framing the rhetoric that way, Lewin and Rubashkin will be able to play the anti-semitism card.

    It seems to me that they can play the anti-semitism card all they want; it doesn’t change the fact that what they’ve done (Agri and their apologists)is clearly a greater threat to our faith than anything PETA is capable of doing.
