Australia bans cattle exports to Gaza due to animal cruelty

There are no words to describe this horrendous act of cruelty. 

Remember, when you import Islam, you import all that goes with it.  And this goes with it.

I don't want to hear any crap about this must just be a small minority and they do not represent Islam.  Problem is, that Islam has had 1,400 years to stop this sort of barbarity and yet it persists within Muslim society.  For that matter, violence is an integral part of Islam.

Australia bans cattle exports to Gaza due to animal cruelty

From The West Australian

    Commonwealth authorities have effectively banned live cattle exports to the Gaza while they investigate shocking images of animal cruelty in the streets of the Palestinian territory.

    DAFF revealed that it had not approved consignments of cattle for Gaza since November when it began investigating allegations raised in the Israeli media.

    "The allegations are serious and information obtained during the investigation is considered when assessing any application from any exporter to send livestock to Gaza," a DAFF spokesman said. "Currently, all exporters to Israel are required to comply with additional conditions to ensure livestock are unloaded in accordance with international animal welfare standards."

    LSS said last week that a ship bound for Israel with 10,000 cattle had been stopped at Fremantle because of an alleged breach of the Commonwealth's exporter supply chain assurance system.

    LSS general manager Garry Robinson suggested the delay was linked to the leakage of the handful of cattle from the approved supply chain in Gaza.

    He warned a zero-tolerance approach to leakage could cost lucrative live trade markets.

    The Bader III eventually left Fremantle on Friday.

    The footage from Gaza shows a bull being "knee-capped" by a man armed with an assault rifle, another stabbed in the eye and others having their throats hacked open.

    LSS, owned by Jordanian company Hijazi and Ghosheh Group, self-reported a possible ESCAS breach in November when it became aware of the footage.

    Its own investigation found a discrepancy involving nine cattle it sent to Gaza. Two of the cattle shown in the footage could be identified by their ear tags. LSS said then that the release of nine cattle from the supply chain was "unacceptable" and it suspended exports to the Gaza facility.
