The Central Conference of European Rabbis issued a response on Wednesday following a decision by the Dutch parliament to ban ritual Jewish slaughter of meat.

"On the basis of flawed and agenda-based science and merely to appease an ill-informed Animal Welfare Lobby, the Netherlands has thrown away centuries of liberailsm, human rights, welcome and tolerance for Jews," said Rabbi Pinchas Goldschmidt, CER president.
