Thanks for the information. They said on NPR that the German law 
(passed during Hitler's tenure) was designed to end a [ractice of 
slicing and hacking away at animals while they were still conscious, 
and that it required the animal be somehow rendered senseless before 
being slaughtered. Apparently the law is still in force and is 
cauing problems among Musline, who have a simiar rule that animals 
must be fully conscious when the slaughtering process begins. That 
according to the news report. They said the Muslims are appealing to 
the German courts for an exemption in their case. When you praised 
the US for permitting ritual slaughter of animals I thought it was 
Jewish ritual slaughter that you were referring to.
