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Exceptions are made for religious reasons which some consider to be not only cruel and painfull to the animals but also outdated and unnecessary.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.
This is in accord with the Muslim belief that anytime a sexual sin, crime, or indiscretion is committed, it is the woman’s fault.
This is why Islamic law mandates that women must cover everything except their face and hands, and some cover their faces as well: if a man attacks a woman, it is the woman’s fault for enticing him, and she will be punished.

Sharia courts should be prevented from presiding over divorces and other family matters, and the Government should stop them from becoming an alternative legal system, campaigners will warn this week.
The calls to act against the controversial courts are being made in a letter signed by more than 150 organisations and individuals which will be delivered to the Prime Minister on Thursday.
This comes after The Independent revealed how sharia courts are keeping women in “marital captivity” and failing to properly report domestic violence.
Among the signatories to the letter are the Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organisation; the Quilliam Foundation; the philosopher AC Grayling; and the National Secular Society.
“Successive governments have appeased undemocratic religious power brokers in minority communities who have sought to gain power through multicultural and now multi-faith social policies,” says the letter.

Exclusive: Academic with unprecedented access to Islamic divorce hearings says courts fail to report domestic violence

Sharia courts in Britain are locking women into “marital captivity” and doing nothing to officially report domestic violence, according to an academic who gained unprecedented access to Islamic divorce hearings.
Judges at the courts “uphold the theory and practice of the strong hold men have over women”, and set out to frustrate women whose husbands do not want them to leave, according to the study seen by The Independent.
The findings, which are to be unveiled in the Houses of Parliament next month, are based on the most detailed and informed analysis of the workings of British sharia courts ever undertaken by an independent researcher.
Machteld Zee, a legal scholar at Leiden University in the Netherlands, secured extraordinary access to the secretive courts, attending 15 hours of hearings at the Islamic Sharia Council in Leyton, east London, and the Birmingham Central Mosque Sharia. She was able to scrutinise more than a dozen cases, and interview an array of sharia experts including nine qadis – Islamic judges.

A new report from The New York Times joins the long list of articles that shows the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) is failing at its attempt to establish a Caliphate paradise for Muslims in Syria and Iraq.
The existence of "no-go zones" in predominantly Muslim areas in Europe has been a major topic of conversation since the latest Paris massacre on Nov. 13, primarily due to the assailants' many connections toMolenbeek, a heavily Muslim district of Brussels. This discussion brings to mind my visit to a drug- and crime-infested slum of 7,000 inhabitants inMarseilles, France, on Jan. 29, to see the situation for myself.

A street scene in one of the heavily Muslim areas of Brussels, taken as I walked solo through the neighborhood.
I entered the housing complex in an unmarked but recognizable city-owned car driven by a city employee who had been tasked with showing me around. Unfortunately, being mostly a paper-pusher and not experienced in the field, he got spooked and abruptly turned around to leave, raising suspicions among the drug dealers around us, who proceeded to set off the alarm.
Video footage of Muslim missionaries preaching and converting Africans in the Christian-majority states of Malawi and Uganda, show the Islamic leaders teaching the people to “bear witness” that Allah is god, his messenger is Muhammed, and “Jesus is the slave of Allah and his Messenger.”
Many of the people repeating the Islamic instructions are young but there are also many middle-aged and older people and, in one case, an apparently former Christian teen who is ordered to tear a crucifix from around his neck and “bear witness” to Allah.
The videos of the conversion sessions were posted online between July and November 2015, and the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translated them and reposted them on their website.
In one clip from October, Sheikh Wahid Abd Al-Salam Bali tells the young people gathered to repeat after him: “There is no god but Allah. And I bear witness that Muhammed is the Messenger of Allah. And I bear witness that Jesus is the slave of Allah and his Messenger.”
“Say, ‘Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar!’” says Sheik Wahid. “Say, ‘Allah Akbar!’ Say, ‘Allah Akbar!’ Say, ‘Allah Akbar!’”
