It’s not a proper Eid unless you’re stabbing a cow in the eye and jumping on its corpse.

That might be exaggerated, but still utterly demented and gruesome stuff. Still not the worst by Muslim standards. We’re talking about a culture where soldiers demonstrated their courage by biting the heads off cats.

Shocking footage of cattle exported from Australia being tortured and killed in the streets of Gaza is being described by an Australian animal rights group as the worst animal cruelty case it has ever seen in the live export industry.

Footage shows what has been identified as an Australian bull being “knee-capped” by a man armed with an assault rifle, another stabbed in the eye and others having their throats hacked open in the streets of the Palestinian territory of Gaza.

The footage, filmed by local civilians and uploaded to YouTube, shows cattle tied to poles, trees and vehicles before being stabbed in the neck and eyes. One animal was kneecapped by bullets fired from an assault rifle.

Filmed by civilians during the Festival of Sacrifice, the footage shows cattle being terrorised by crowds and tortured in streets and makeshift slaughterhouses – all in breach of Australia’s live export regulations.

Animals Australia packaged together more than seven minutes of harrowing footage from Gaza and sent it to all Federal MPs this week.

“So acceptable is this brutal treatment to locals that they are cheering and filming the spectacle on mobile phones,” Animals Australian campaign director Lyn White said.

That’s the genuinely disturbing part. This isn’t animal slaughter, which obviously gets bloody, it’s deliberate sadism, which is a whole other issue.

When people are laughing, filming and cheering, and taking part by just attacking animals, you’re dealing with serial killer type stuff.

Animals Australia isn’t shy about its agenda, which is a ban on live export of animals by Australia that would impact its economy quite badly. Its cases quite often involve animal abuse in Muslim countries. Labor, which was certainly not against live export when it was in power, has decided to jump on this in their scandal-a-minute assault on Tony Abbott, the country’s new conservative Prime Minister.

    Never deal with Palestinians..send them nothing…Let them wallow in their self imposed Islamic misery..

      Actually Palestinians are Christians and Muslims and you will find that they do not “wallow”. The defy you ugly zionists and you can’t stand it. You know in your heart that they are better than you zionists.

    Cruel, barbaric and shameful act of insanity! There’s no place in today’s world for animal sacrifice.

  • Guest

    Why is anybody surprised about this?

  • GR

    What a coincidence that this article is published just as the Israeli military is slaughtering Palestinians in Gaza!

    Prefect timing for a Jewish author… you are very good!

    Now here’s a question for you Daniel:

    Which country has the worst human cruelty in history?

    • Mark Pardue

      Every Islamic one followed by Germany

    • Daniel Greenfield

      It was published in December 2014.

      You are bad with dates.

    So why is a Bulgarian ritual being passed off as a scene in Gaza? I think this article is generated by the Israel military propaganda department for the stupid.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Nice try.

      This article cites The Guardian, about as anti-Israel as you can get.

      • http://batman-news.com/ James

        Nobody is buying what you are selling zionist. Carpet bag your slurs elsewhere.

        • Daniel Greenfield

          Bark some more.

          Then take it up with Animals Australia which is the source.

          • http://batman-news.com/ James

            I leave the barking to the likes of you leg humping annoying zionists and your propaganda fronts.

            I think it is laughable that a small unheard of animal rights group fronted by a zionist Jew ‘exposes’ what happens in Gaza using a photo from Bulgaria.
