The ‘Get Rich’ halal certifiers are now on the back foot. Consumers and Islamic scholars are pushing back against the halal moneymen. Politicians are listening to angry constituents. The issue is a hot topic on the public airwaves, online and in our Federal Parliament.
Gillian Triggs gave only a token reference to the Party that caused 2,000 children to be held in detention and no reference at all to the hundreds who drowned. Her love affair with Labor was on display and her lack of impartiality has destroyed her personal political plaything, The Human Rights Commission.
If we are to defeat and eradicate the ballooning number of halal certifiers who prey on our stupidity then our greatest allies will be Muslims themselves.
Islamic leaders are becoming louder in their criticism of halal certification, likening it to a Satan-inspired money grubbing scam that jettisons the Islamic faith. It has caused particular angst among Muslim elders in Africa, Indonesia, Australia and elsewhere.
Abbott referred to “Islamic fanatics” for the first time today and that’s a quantum leap from his recent rhetoric. “No more will they have the benefit of the doubt” was a reference to residency afforded Muslims who take advantage of our welfare system while planning our demise.
Indonesia has a population of around 237 million people. It has the largest number of Muslims of any country in the world and is home to 13% of the world’s entire Muslim population. It also happens to be our nearest neighbour and a lucrative export market.
From the Qur’an: “And say not concerning that which your tongue says falsely: ‘This is Halal and this is Haram’, so as to invent lies against Allah. Verily, those who invent lies against Allah will never prosper... A passing brief enjoyment (will be theirs), but they will have a painful torment.” (16:116-117)
Phew! It’s very bloody hot around here. I know it’s not the weather, so it must be that halal certified curry I just ate. Golly, something tastes very funny with my Mussaman beef and my Vegemite too, and my Cadbury's chocolate bars... and all my Nestle stuff!
David Hicks, under laws being introduced now, would be in for some serious jail time. Hicks converted to Islam while in Afghanistan and fought with the Taliban against the Commonwealth. He had met with his hero Osama bin Laden 20 times and was trained in a variety of weapons designed to kill Australians and Americans.
What great cause could unite Prince Charles, President Obama, the Pope, the Arab Oil sheiks, the United Nations, the European Union, the Russians, the Chinese, Pacific Island Nations, most undeveloped countries, the glitterati of Hollywood, left-wing politicians, unrepentant reds, government media, the climate research industry, Big Oil, Big Gas and the Green Blob. It must be something posing a clear and urgent danger to all humanity?
His epiphany was not on the road to Damascus but on the road to Tripoli where 21 of Egypt’s Christians were beheaded by 21 Muslim savages. If the victims were described as Christian then the word Muslim surely described the perpetrators. To name one ideology and not the other not only defies logic but defies 1400 years of violent history. Were the Crusades not Christian?
I confess – I really, really, really like my chocolate! And I have sampled quite a bit in my time. Of course I have tried Nestle, Mars, Cadbury, Lindt, Haigh’s and more in the past. These days I tend to stick to just a couple of brands, with Lindt and Haighs being my personal favourites.
Tony Abbott has finally taken aim at Islam with his statement that “no more benefit of the doubt” be given to Muslim leaders who lie about their intentions. Last year he was assured of “inclusive cooperation” from Islamic clerics who promised to rein in their radical youth. Of course they lied... and the grand master of lying is the self-styled grand mufti of Australia, Ibrahim Abu Mohammed (pic. right).
