I am not an historian, decent author or a journalist, and the chances are that unless there is a link or reference to somewhere else, the perpetrator is yours truly – Renaud Sarda. I created this blog as a focal point, to arm people with arguments and facts that they can perhaps use to counter biased media reporting and anti-Israel propaganda, and to help counter (BDS) campaign. I am a Zionist/Sephardi/Jew who will fly the Israeli flag, and defend whatever Israel does.

Polish Court Overturns Ban on Shechita
(AP). Poland’s constitutional court has overturned an earlier ban on the ritual slaughter of animals which had affected the Jewish and Muslim communities, saying the constitution guarantees the freedom of religious practice.
Ritual slaughter, which involves the killing of animals for meat without stunning them first to lessen their pain, has been illegal since Jan. 1, 2013, because of an earlier ruling by the Constitutional Tribunal after animal rights activists brought the case to the court.
The new ruling on Wednesday came in reaction to a complaint lodged by Poland’s Jewish community, which argued that the ban violated Poland’s constitution as well as the European Convention of Human Rights.
Poland’s chief rabbi, Michael Schudrich, said he was grateful to the court and relieved by its decision.
