ISRAEL - Government Urged to Halt Animal Farming

Arno Froese

Activists have taken to Tel Aviv and cities around the world to push governments to fight climate change by putting food systems at the forefront of their green policies.

This new global campaign is calling for a “Plant Based Treaty,” which will see people put pressure from the bottom on leaders to negotiate global agreements halting animal agriculture and the impact it has on the planet.

“With just five years left, according to the latest IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) report, to reverse the worst effects of climate change, business as usual is no longer an option. It’s time to switch toward a plant-based economy to reverse the damage we have caused to the environment, and to promote a healthier society,” Israel Climate Save & Freedom4Animals founder Yael Gabay said in a statement.

“We reached out to the city of Tel Aviv’s environmental representative and deputy mayor, Reuven Ladianski, several times to request a meeting with the city to present them with the Plant Based Treaty and see how the city can possibly endorse it, to no avail.

Arno's Commentary

Regarding these protests for a “Plant Based Treaty,” they certainly have a legitimate reason if none other than just health purposes. It is a fact that the healthy Mediterranean diet, plenty of sunshine, and the consumption of olive products has led to better outcomes in life expectancy for Israelis.

As Christians, we keep to the guideline of 1 Corinthians 10:25, 27: “Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake…If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.”
