Please read both the links

Has your Thanksgiving turkey been sacrificed to idols?

Halal foods can be found in many Middle Eastern grocers. In larger cities, you may be able to find halal butchers.

With the growing demand for Halal foods in some areas, some national supermarket chains are carrying halal meats even halal turkeys for Thanksgiving

It is sad that in 2011 people are so ignorant. In all most stores they have kosher certified as well as halal certified. Do you feel the same way about kosher turkeys? A true Muslim does not worship idols. Those radical people in the middle east are not practicing real Islam. There are plenty of decent american muslims in the USA. Your links are also not accurate as far as what halal really means. When I clicked on your post, I thought it was about a butterball recall or something. I did not realize you were sharing your biased,ignorant views.

I'm sorry, you did make the title of your post sound like a recall, but a perfect time to educate now. As the previous poster commented, no different than what we allow for the Jewish religion.

This article is a great counter-point to the women who appears to have started this campaign against Butterball.

This actually would make me buy Butterball Turkeys more than others. Same as the Kosher, Hebrew National hot dogs. I just feel like things that are Kosher or Halal certified means they are held to a higher standard. That is probably a naive statment, and who knows if that is actually true... but it sure makes me feel better!! LOL!!

It is pathetically sad that someone would not buy a turkey for these ridiculous reasons, but to each his own I guess.
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints, the sinners are much more fun!

Halal Turkeys Are Tainting Thanksgiving, Says Pamela Geller
According to Geller, in a column from The American Thinker, the turkey brand is forcing sharia law onto all of us by offering whole turkeys that are "certified halal." Geller is aghast: "In a little-known strike against freedom, yet again, we are being forced into consuming meat slaughtered by means of a torturous method: Islamic slaughter." Yet again!

This post is discriminating in nature and should be removed. However, after saying that, I had no idea there was such thing as Halal...I'm learning more and more from this group everyday!
