Middle East Hal Al Diners to Feast On Australian Camel Meat.

An Egyptian businessman plans to build an abattoir in South Australia to export Camel meat to the Middle East

  Meat importer Magdiens Australia owner Magdy El Ashram, said the abattoir would create 250 jobs and a 60 Million - a -  year industry. "It's a win - win situation -- everyone is going to benefit" he said.

However, it has not been disclosed how the Camels will be slaughtered, such as the methods employed in the Middle East. The inhumane methods of slaughtering  animals in the Middle East is well documented, and can be researched by using your PC. Having done this myself I was horrified by the brutality to these animals prior to being killed. I intend to keep an eye on what may transpire when these Camels are slaughtered in South Australia. There can be little doubt that the people employed at the abattoir will be of the Muslim Faith who will finalise the lives of these Camels, But "How" is the big question, will the Muslim traditionalists succumb to Aussie rules or have their own sordid way?

Australian feral Camel

 
Australian Feral Camel
Dromedary, Camelus dromedarius, the species of the Australian Feral Camel
Scientific classification
Kingdom:Animalia
Phylum:Chordata
Class:Mammalia
Order:Artiodactyla
Family:Camelidae
Genus:Camelus
Species:Camelus dromedarius
Binomial name
Camelus dromedarius
Linnaeus, 1758
The ancestors of Australian feral camels were dromedary camels imported to provide transport through inland Australia, which their feral descendants have since made their home. The increasing numbers of camels and their impact on native vegetation is of concern, and feral camels have become minor agricultural pests.
Many different types and breeds of camels were brought into Australia, but most were from India. They included the large, fleece-bearing, two-humped Bactrian camel of China and Mongolia, the elite Bishari riding camel of North Africa and Arabia, the pedigreed Bikaneri war camel of Rajasthan in India, and the powerful, freight-carrying lowland Indian camel, capable of moving huge loads of up to 800 kg or 1,764 lb.
The feral dromedary camels found in Australia are a mix of these breeds but can be split into two types: a slender riding form and a heavier pack animal.
Thousands of camels were imported between 1840 and 1907 to open up the arid areas of central and western Australia. They were used for riding, and as draught and pack animals for exploration and construction of rail and telegraph lines; they were also used to supply goods to remote mines and settlements.

Jimmy: Don't get the Hump. That's correct. Australia imported several species including some from India. Seems their cohabitation has been selectively bred out by the more common dromedary, a one humper.

400 yrs late: Vatican honours Galileo

Rome: Four hundred years after Galileo Galilei first demonstrated his telescope to scholars on a Roman hilltop,the astronomer condemned by the Catholic Church was celebrated on the same spot with a multimedia art exhibit that,oddly enough,included an installation from the Vatican.
Heliographs,astrolabes and other antique astrological instruments that belong to the Vatican Observatory stood alongside contemporary art inspired by Galileo and his science: rows of intensely hot,blindingly bright floodlights simulating the sun;a performance by a Tibetan musician playing a telescope-like horn.
The event took place on Thursday night at the American Academy in Rome,a research center for the arts and humanities whose gardens lie on the exact spot where,on the night of April 14,1611,Galileo showed off his telescope for the first time to the most important scholars of his time.


Galileo made the first complete astronomical telescope and used it to gather evidence that the Earth revolved around the sun.Church teaching at the time had placed Earth at the center of the universe.The church denounced Galileos theory as dangerous to the faith,but Galileo defied its warnings.Tried for heresy and forced to recant in 1633,he spent the rest of his life under house arrest.AP
