Koran verse 5:5 reveals the truth about what food is lawful for Muslims to eat

?Made lawful to you this day are At?Tayyibat [all kinds of Halal (lawful) foods, which Allah has made lawful (meat of slaughtered eatable animals, etc., milk products, fats, vegetables and fruits, etc.). The food (slaughtered cattle, eatable animals, etc.) of the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) is lawful to you and yours is lawful to them.[…]

-Verse (5:5) – English Translation

There is a little-known verse in the Koran that reveals that Muslims in New Zealand and indeed anywhere in the world are allowed to eat Christian and Jewish food without it having to be specially prepared.

This tells me that the push for Halal food is part of Dawah ( spreading?the message of Islam) rather than a genuine dietary requirement. They are making a fuss to bring their religious law into our community.

Halal Certification” is nothing but a scam for stupid infidels!

Knowing this inconvenient fact is a weapon in the arsenal of those who want to stop the latest push to make KFC in New Zealand Halal. Another inconvenient fact about that particular issue is that to be certified Halal KFC would have to reveal their biggest industry secret which is their recipe. If any of their ingredients were not considered Halal then they would have to change their recipe.

Muslims around the world have a proud history of trying to mold? people and businesses around them to conform to their beliefs and standards. While it?s natural to want to convert people to a religion that you believe in, the Islamic community takes it to a whole new level. Even in situations where they are ignoring the parts of the Quran that tells them to kill the Infidels, they try to force us to adhere to their strict personal standards.

The United States is fighting this battle every single day but we?re not alone. The pervasive Muslim population in the UK and other countries have started a very damaging campaign to try and force businesses in the food industry to cook the food the way that they want. The most recent victim is KFC, whose recipe has been kept under lock and key since the 40?s. But that?s not going to work for Muslims.

According to the?US Herald, Muslims have started a social media campaign to attempt and force KFC to change to make their food ?Halal?:

?The campaign calling on KFC to serve halal food is gaining traction in New Zealand, thanks to a Facebook offensive on social media which includes the Islamic dietary requirements across the nation, with more than 2,000 likes in little more than a month.[…]

Countries that have essentially great economies, like the United States and New Zealand, have them because they allow businesses to pander to whatever audience they wish to. Chances are KFC isn?t the place that you?ll run into a supermodel or your local yoga instructor, but you don?t see them launching a campaign trying to make the company change. They just walk on down the block and buy a salad, no harm done.

What is going on here is that Muslim people are trying to get special treatment to accommodate their religion of choice. They could avoid the chain, but they don?t, they want them to comply with Muslim law instead:

The movement is being led by Syeda Fouzia, who said the process of delivering halal food ?is not that difficult.?

?We?ve had some criticism, but having halal certification will only mean more people will be able to eat at KFC. It won?t affect non-Muslims,? UK-born Ms. Fouzia told reporters.?

[…] It will affect those working there who have to have special training, and it will affect those who have to wait longer in lines or pay more because of the difference. […] it will certainly affect us if this is used as precedent to push other companies who don?t wish to change their ways into complying with the demands of the Muslim community.

?However what seems to be missing in all of this is KFC?s iconic branding within the fast food industry and whether it might actually affect its business model around the world, in that the entire concept of KFC is its branding persona of it?s carefully guarded ?top-secret? original recipe which includes a blend of 11 herbs and spices.?

In case you?re not understanding what that means, the loose translation is that some Muslims want a secret that has been kept for 70 years to be aired out in the open so that Muslims can consider eating at the chain.? […]
