    Ban on furs

    Israel Fur Trade Ban Wins Support : Humane Society International

    Update, September 1, 2010

    Humane Society International is applauding moves by politicians in Israel who have put forward proposals to ban the fur trade throughout the country. The bill, introduced by Knesset Member Ronit Tirosh, seeks to outlaw the production, processing, import, export and sale of fur from all animal species not already part of the meat industry. A ban on all fur throughout the country would be a world first—a major stand against the animal cruelty inherent in the worldwide fur trade—and it would set an example that other countries would look to and follow. It has attracted widespread support in Israel and from the public, politicians and celebrities from around the world.

    A ban on the fur trade should only apply to endangered animals,so I would not support an outright ban on the fur trade.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I would in my country with a caveat to allow the trade in furs of feral animals.

    No.
    As far as I know, no problem exists.
    Has it not been determined that animals have no rights?
    Raising animals for their fur is no different than for their meat. It is, of course, possible for either to be inhumane.

    Nope. Never in a free society, however I can respect those who do not believe in it for whatever purposes to abstain from wearing it.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Not a question of supporting it or not. I thought UK Parliament banned/restricted it already. But otherwise no, unless it's endangered. Then I don't care about individuals right to wear fur, ban it.

    I say people can wear what they want but we should tax the hell out of luxury items.

    I agree with this.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    I would not support a ban on the fur trade for any reason.
