Zurich Ã‚Â© (www.koshertoday.com
)Ã¢â‚¬Â¦Despite lobbying by the Swiss Jewish community, Switzerland has decided not to ease a law that bans kosher slaughter of animals, reports the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. The Swiss government said though that it would continue to guarantee the import of kosher meat for that country's kosher consumers. Swiss Jewry was already rocked by reports last week of revelations about the duplicity of the Swiss Police during the Nazi era, further proof that its neutrality only resulted in turning away Jews towards certain death. Switzerland remains one of the few European countries still to ban kosher slaughter.
