You've done your research- Brazil & Argentina are the main suppliers to many of the fast food outlets around the middle east, and it is being labelled as Halal under the pretext that it has been slaughtered by 'people of the book'.... This in turn raises doubt, which basically means it's a no go...

It's a very very sad state of affairs that you have had to ask this question, in my opinion.

I used to live in Saudi before and back then, there were a lot of butcher shops. What I've heard is that a lot, if not all, of the butcher shops have had live chickens removed from them due to a government mandate and this was even before the H5N1 bird flu pandemic. Before, you'd go to a butcher shop, the butcher would pick the chicken from the cages and then slaughter it in front of you.
