After it was reported that Subway was selling only Halal certified food in its United Kingdom restaurants, Florida Family Association launched an alert. The alert asked people to send emails to ask Subway if it was selling or planning to sell Halal food in its United States restaurants. Subway informed Florida Family Association that it does do not sell Halal certified food in its US and Canada restaurants and has no plans to do so.
Barenakedislam.org reports: FINGER LICKIN’ BAD NEWS! ALL KFC restaurants in the UK are HALAL-certified. The article states in part:
The world’s second-largest fast-food chain has accidentally confirmed that all its UK outlets serve chicken that has been slaughtered under barbaric, non-stun Islamic methods – despite its website officially stating that most of its stores in the UK are NOT Halal.
Politicalite (h/t Marvin W) The shocking revelation came after a Twitter user asked the food chain’s customer service Twitter account to confirm or deny if all of their stores are now serving Halal-only chicken. https://www.politicalite.com/halal/finger-lickin-bad-kfc-accidentally-reveals-all-uk-restaurants-serve-halal-meat/
Due to religious reasons, Muslims only eat meat that has not been stunned – the animal must be completely alert whilst being slaughtered. This leads to immense suffering and horrific torture of animals – chickens included.
The RSPCA is currently running a campaign opposing brutal Halal methods. Yet this hasn’t stopped KFC from appeasing British Muslims by ensuring that – as we now know – all of its chickens are killed using the brutal outdated slaughter method.
“Hi Mike, we can confirm that all of our restaurants are selling Halal chicken, thanks” KFC replied, leaving many angered and confused over the misleading messages given out by the company’s website.
On the site, KFC states that it only serves Halal food in “around 110” of its 900 stores operating in the UK – clearly contradicting the confirmation given by their official Twitter account.
The Zakat (Islamic tax) on Halal food supports oppressive Sharia tenets and has been used to fund terrorism.
While the RSPCA is concerned about animal cruelty, Florida Family Association is more concerned about the Zakat tax on Halal certified food being used for human cruelty. The Zakat is mandated by Sharia law and portions of it are used to support Sharia’s harsh suppression of women. Additionally, the Zakat has been used to fund Jihad, terror.
Wikipedia reports: “As one of the Five Pillars of Islam, zakat is a religious obligation for all Muslims who meet the necessary criteria of wealth. It is a mandatory charitable contribution, often considered to be a tax.” The Five Pillars of Islam are the core of Sharia law. Islam is Sharia and Sharia is Islam according to many Islamic scholars. The Zakat tax collected on Halal food can be used for any Islamic purpose including Sharia law.
The Center for Security Policy reports: How Zakat Funds Jihad. The report states in part:
Zakat is a concern because, as the bipartisan 9-11 Commission Report detailed, it has in fact been used to fund Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups:
From page 170 of the 9/11 Commission Report: Al Qaeda and its friends took advantage of Islam’s strong calls for charitable giving, zakat. These financial facilitators also appeared to rely heavily on certain imams at mosques who were willing to divert zakat donations to al Qaeda’s cause.
The most authoritative source for such information is a book which is available on Amazon called “The Reliance of the Traveler, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law.” That book has a whole section devoted to the rules of zakat, including “THE EIGHT CATEGORIES OF RECIPIENTS.” On page 272, section h8.17, one category is labeled: THOSE FIGHTING FOR ALLAH. The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster (O: but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration). They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses (O: for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged. Though nothing has been mentioned here of the expense involved in supporting such people’s families during this period, it seems clear that they should also be given it).
This passage, from this widely-used Shariah text seems to have been written expressly about zakat payments to charities which have funded Al Qaeda, HAMAS, Hezbollah and the Taliban. Note from the passage that such payments are meant specifically for irregular forces who are not part of any army roster, which describes terrorist/guerilla/insurgent groups exactly.
Consumers should be concerned about the Zakat tax on Halal certified KFC chicken being used for the oppressive Sharia law and Jihad.
How many KFCs in the United States currently sell Halal certified chicken? If KFC sells Halal certified chicken in its USA restaurants do these restaurants prominently post that fact for the public to see? Does KFC plan to sell Halal certified chicken in all of its USA restaurants?
Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send that asks officials at Kentucky Fried Chicken and its parent company Yum Brands about the sale of Halal certified chicken in its United States restaurants.
