The New Zealand Agricultural Minister David Carter wanted to ban the Jewish method of slaughter shechita in order to protect lucrative trade with the Muslim world.
The Minister has appeared to back down when Jews understandably kicked off in the courts which now states the practice of shechita on poultry is allowed although New Zealand's Jews still have to import beef from Australia.
What LM finds bizarre about the case is which Muslim Government anywhere in the world would support increased trade with a country that bans Jewish slaughter methods. Muslims have no issue with shechita and some eat Kosher food so somehow I fear New Zealand are completely confusing the issue of trade with Israel which Muslims would support a boycott of and Jewish religious customs which Muslims do not support boycotting.
