    kosher and hallal both involve slaughter by draining blood from the animal being slaughtered, and not by chopping its head off, or beating it to death. prayers are said by the person slaug
    htering, muslems say over each animal, the jewish rabbie says it once.rabbis check the organs of teh animal for parasites, flaws, growths etc, and if any imperfection is found, teh animal is declared not kosher. therefore a chicken with a broken leg will not be sold as kosher. kosher meat is salted inside and out. in general, hallal and kosher serve teh same purpose for someone who is not orthodox jewish: the animal was slaughterd in a specific fashion. howver, a jew will not eat a kosher style slaughtered animal if slaughtered by non jews or w/o a rabbi present. certain cuts of meat are considered not kosher. personally, living in a country which is only kosher or hallal, i prefer neither. too salty.and too expensive. and the meat is always drier..
