All Nations As Terrorist States
But if terrorism is linked to intentional violence inflicted on innocent persons for ideological, political, or economic motivations, and nonhuman animals also are “persons”—subjects of a life—then the human war against animals is terrorism. Every individual who terrifies, injures, tortures, and/or kills an animal is a terrorist; fur farms, factory farms, foie gras, vivisection, and other exploitative operations are terrorist industries; and governments that support these industries are terrorist states. The true weapons of mass destruction are the gases, rifles, stun guns, cutting blades, and forks and knives used to experiment on, kill, dismember, and consume animal bodies.
The anti-terror crusader, US alone kills more than one million animals per hour which are cruelly raised, handled, transported, stocked and killed.
Each year in the US alone,
• Over 10 billion farmed animals are killed for food consumption (which translates to over 1 million animals per hour);
• 17–70 million animals are killed for testing and experimentation;
• Over 100 million are killed for hunting; and
• 7–8 million animals are trapped or raised in confinement for their fur.
Mahatma Gandhi was right when he said that “the greatness of a nation is judged by the way it treats its animals”.
This crime against creation will never go unpunished. Ordinary laws can be circumvented and courts can be bribed but no one can escape the stringent laws of material nature. Unnecessary killing of even an ant is a serious crime.
It is just a question of time before we pay through nose for all this mischief. The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceeding fine.
