This booklet describes the scriptural evidence that indicates how Jesus had a compassion for animals. Many of the early Christians were vegetarians, and it is highly likely that Jesus was also. Verses in the Bible describing him eating fish are probably later additions to the text.
Reading the Koran and Hadith shows that Mohammed also was compassionate towards animals and abhorred cruelty towards them. He preferred a vegetarian diet.

NOT HALAL SLAUGHTERED LOGO
Halal slaughter is an avoidably cruel method.
The throat is slit without any pre-stunning.
The animal can suffer for up to 2 minutes.
The Farm Animal Welfare Council report deplored this, before the pro-Islamic lobby caused it to be watered down.
Meat that is not marked 'Halal' may in fact have been slaughtered in this way, because some parts of the animal, the hind quarters, are not regarded as Halal.
A logo is required to ensure that those who do not wish to be part of this cruel trade can have some reassurance. A capital letter H with a red circle and red diagonal line is proposed.
Around 10 million farm animals are slaughtered in this way annually in the UK.
William Wilberforce would have been apalled.
