Assalamu Alaikum:

Since Muslims did not sue McDonald''s as Vegetarians, Hindus and
Jewish groups did by joining a class action lawsuit, the Muslim
objection to the settlement has been now rejected. Currently,
Vegetarians have filed an appeal to question some fund allocation in
damages to two Muslim groups from the portion allocated for
Vegetarians in the settlement. Muslims agree to this objection, as
they have filed an appeal against the settlement as well. Although
Muslims enjoy eating vegetables, they are not vegetarians, since it
is permissible for them to eat meat with certain conditions and
limitations.

While the court system will take its time, we are releasing our
presentation made to McDonald''s at their headquarters in Oak Brook,
Illinois last year. McDonald''s runs more than 500 Halal restaurants
in the world. The presentation was made by me on behalf of the
Muslim community. Unfortunately, it has not resulted in any benefit
to Muslims or McDonald''s to date.

It is a welcoming trend that many people in the food industry are
pushing to pass their products as Halal because of the growing
domestic market for Halal in the US and Canada, but also because of
export to countries where imported Halal food is big business. These
trends are welcoming and point to the urgent need for Halal groups
to work with Vegetarians, Kosher groups, and organic food advocates
to collectively enhance the common agenda of a healthy diet for all.

It is nevertheless important not to accept pressure by Vegetarian
and Kosher commercial interests to take over the Halal market under
the false pretext that their diet is Halal. United Airlines
routinely serves me a Hindu meal when I ask them for a Muslim meal.
Many Muslim inmates report that they are forced to eat Kosher when
they ask for Halal.

While Muslims are allowed as a gesture of friendship to eat anything
offered to us by the People of the Book, we cannot eat things which
are prohibited by God. Whereas Muslims prefer Vegetarian and Kosher
choices when there is no Halal choice available, neither are all
Vegetarian practices Halal, nor all Kosher opinions acceptable to
Muslims. These are three different sets of dietary practices and
rules.

Hundreds of Muslims are responding to our call for a Muslim Halal
watchdog group. While there are many Halal certification groups, all
are dependent upon funding by the companies which they are supposed
to monitor. While the funding does not necessarily mean influence,
in the real world, money talks. Therefore, the need for an
independent membership group is there to watch for Halal interests.
I invite all of you to join the effort to form one such group.

Peace,
Abdul Malik Mujahid

*** MUSLIM PRESENTATION TO MCDONALD''S
It has been almost a year since Muslims made this presentation to
McDonald''s on the issue of Halal. We patiently waited for a positive
response and dialog. However, we think it is important for Muslims
to know what our presentation contains.
