Rashid Kibaga, a Somali Muslim who immigrated to Ireland, just wanted to get his slaughter on. He wasn’t a certified butcher, nor did he have any sort of formal butchery training. However, that didn’t matter to him because he was a strict Muslim, and his bloodthirsty god Satan- err, Allah demanded bloodshed. Kibaga bought himself five goats and set out to kill them.
Halal animal slaughter involves slicing the neck of the animal without anesthetizing it first while a Muslim recites verses from the Qur’an. I’m sure the animal is deeply comforted by the babbling of a crazed Muslim as it is forced to suffer during its horrifying final moments, watching its own blood spray from its throat. Kibaga insisted on slaughtering his goats in halal fashion, because the seventh-century words of a pedophile are more important than humane methods of slaughter. He contacted two of his Somali Muslim friends, with whom he was living in an asylum seekers’ hostel, and the trio began the slaughter in a private house. Why would they kill five goats if they weren’t able to sell or consume all the meat? Who knows; maybe the non-LaVeyan Satanists have some idea about that since they also ritually slaughter animals just to watch them die.
Kibaga stuck the knife into the first goat’s neck, causing the animal to squeal and shriek in pain, which alerted neighbors to what was going on. He then cut its throat, causing it to thrash uncontrollably and spray blood everywhere. He then killed the second goat in the same fashion before skinning both. He beheaded the third goat, which didn’t even get a chance to scream before its death. Police busted in on the bloodsoaked scene during the process of slaughtering the fourth – its throat had just been cut, and it died shortly thereafter. Kibaga and his Muslim friends were arrested for animal cruelty. The fifth goat, which had reportedly been kept in poor conditions, was rescued.
Kibaga told police he had no idea what he did was wrong, that he was just following the traditions of his Islamic homeland. That isn’t saying much, considering how Somalia is the worst country on the planet by almost every metric imaginable. He has been sentenced to 1 year in jail suspended for 2 years.
