Halal is an Arabic word meaning lawful or permitted. The opposite of halal is haram, which means unlawful or prohibited.
The term covers and designates not only food and drink but also all matters of daily life. It is one of five الأحكام الخمسة (al-ahkam al-khamsah)—fard (compulsory), mustahabb (recommended), halal (allowed), makruh(disliked), haram (forbidden)—that define the morality of human action in Islam.Mubah is also used to mean "permissible" or "allowed" in Islam.
Question: Does the money from halal taxation go towards terrorism?
Answer : Yes - See Here
This is why non-muslims must campaign for and marginalise halal products in the shops and supermarkets of our towns and cities. Every pound/dollar spent on a halal taxed product generates a percentage which is automatically routed to terrorist organisations.
Although halal taxation covers a wide spectrum of goods and services the public are probably most aware of the controversy and debate surrounding halal meat products.
Livestock in the UK and the west are slaughtered under very strict and humane conditions. Guidance on animal welfare for slaughterhouses is regulated by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs and the guidlines for animal slaughter can be found here
Exceptions are made for religious reasons which some consider to be not only cruel and painfull to the animals but also outdated and unnecessary.
One major campaign raising awareness of halal slaughter in the social media arena is the Boycott Halal Campaign on facebook which currently has over 80,000 supporters.

9. Dhabihah: method of slaughter
Dhabīḥah (ذَبِيْحَة) is the prescribed method of slaughter for all meat sources, excluding fish and other sea-life, per Islamic law.
This method of slaughtering animals consists of using a well-sharpened knife to make a swift, deep incision that cuts the front of the throat, the carotid artery, windpipe, and jugular veins.
The head of an animal that is slaughtered using halal methods is aligned with the qiblah [*direction of Mecca].
In addition to the direction, permitted animals should be slaughtered upon utterance of the Islamic prayer 'Bismillah'
"in the name of God."
*The Concious Animal is left to bleed out with it's throat cut, feeling horrendous pain, panic and distress.
