Frank is right about that one. The movie THE ETERNAL JEW documented 
the Jewish pratice of slaughtering animals so as to cause the maximum 
distress to the sacificial victim. Government leaders were so 
horrified that a law was passed insisting that animals who were 
slaughtered must first be rendered unconscious, and the law is still 
in force today. Now that Germany's Jews have all been killed or 
eiled, this is mostly a problem for orthodox Muslims. In the US, 
where religious freedom is carried a mite too far in this instance, 
animals may be slaughtered with maxumum cruelty according to Jewish 
or Muslim tradition. This is a custom that needs to be revisited in 
terms of modern ideas of right and wrong, just as human sacrifice, 
polygamy, and other ancient religious customs have been reconsidered.
