New Zealand obstructs Jewish Ethnic Genetic Interests

The following story is a competition between at least two sets of Ethnic Genetic Interests

New Zealand has banned the kosher slaughter of animals, provoking outrage in the Jewish community.

Rabbi Moshe Gutnick, …, was incensed …
“We will be doing everything possible to get this decision reversed,” he said.

Community leaders,… said the community was extremely concerned by the “lack of consultation” prior to the decision.
David Zwartz, the chairman of the Wellington Jewish Council, pointed to the Bill of Rights, which allows for freedom of religious practice.
“I am sure there will objections made that this is an infringement of the right of Jews to observe their religion.”
Mr Carter reportedly rejected a recommendation that shechitah be exempt from the new code. The National Animal Welfare Advisory Council did recommend a dispensation for kosher slaughter in 2001, but the new code does not allow exemptions.
