‘Homeland’ Creator Demands End to Military’s War on Animals

Posted by 4 years ago | Permalink | Comments (12)

Gideon Raff, creator and executive producer of hit Channel 4 series Homeland, knows that you don’t need to shoot, stab or dismember animals to produce one of the most capable fighting forces in the world. Having served as a paratrooper in the Israel Defense Forces before creating the hit TV series, he has firsthand experience.

After reading PETA’s exposé about the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) participation in deadly animal-based trauma-training exercises overseas that would be illegal here in the UK, Gideon penned a letter to Secretary of State for Defence Philip Hammond urging him to switch to the high-tech human simulators that most military institutions use to teach life-saving skills. Gideon Raff PETA Letter Please join Gideon and urge the MoD to stop killing animals in cruel training exercises.

    The sadistic, barbaric, monstrous, malevolent and demonic atrocities that the UK and United States militaries perpetrates against innocent animals are war crimes.

    Absolute barbaric and inhumane treatment of animals for the sake of stupid warfare. Animals deserve more than this, they should not be involved in our stupid fights. Injuring them on purpose it’s totally unnecessary in this day and age. Call ourselves human????
