Muslims and Jews join to oppose Dutch ban on ritual slaughter
And now in news I should have mentioned yesterday so as not to seem like the only religion writer who didn’t hear about the Dutch vote to ban ritual slaughter ...
Here’s the story from Reuters:
Quite unusually, particularly in the Netherlands, which has been home to both Islamic extremism and anti-Islamic reactions, Muslims and Jews have joined forces to oppose the ritual slaughter ban.
So, if I understand this correctly, the key to interfaith dialogue between Muslims and Jews is just to put forward bans for ritual slaughter and circumcision.
