Turnbull will not guarantee our safety

I have finally received an appalling response from the PM. Well, actually there was no response from the PM at all. Shocking and so unexpected – NOT! Instead he duck-shoved my questions to Senator Zed Seselja and the Acting Assistant Secretary Felicity Smart.


GOVT SITS ON ITS HANDS WHILE CONSUMERS PAY MORE FOR HALAL CERTIFICATION

This week marks one year since the Economics Reference Committee handed in its recommendations on the Third Party Certification of Food Inquiry. The photo is of Senator Cory Bernardi and me earlier this year at Parliament House. I submitted two petitions that day. One to the Senate and one to the House of Representatives that George Christensen MP received.


LISA WILKINSON IS NO COMEDIAN

... Kirralie Smith

Breakfast television was one of the main reasons our family disconnected from mainstream media. The constant ‘gossip’ presented as news, the obvious advertising pushes and the political activism and bias by the presenters was all we needed to switch off a number of years ago now.


Dear Mr Turnbull,

I, along with many Australians, are becoming increasingly concerned about your lack of knowledge, or your deliberate deception, when it comes to Islam in Australia.


IMAGINE IF WE HELD A F*** SAM DASTYARI PARTY or a F*** HALAL PARTY!

The Daily Mail has reported that a pub in Sydney is hosting a F*** Pauline Hanson party. They are billing it as a day of inclusiveness. Seriously!!! How many Muslims will be going to go to a pub?


SEEING THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN

... where the Quran and Hadiths are textbooks for terrorism

I am so devastated and sad this morning regarding the news coming out of Orlando. 50 dead and another 53 injured because a devout Muslim took the Islamic texts and example of Mohamed literally.


I KNOW YOU BELIEVE EVERYONE WAS BORN MUSLIM

... I'm sorry, but I wasn't

On my 4 hour drive home yesterday I stopped at the 7 Eleven Heatherbrae NSW (near Newcastle) for fuel. This was the poster confronting me as I filled up.


SUNRISE SINKING

I have mentioned before that I don’t watch television. Sunrise is another vivid example of why I avoid it. The story was titled the Violent Protests over Halal Food. No, the violent protests were initiated by the lefty thugs who act like fascists trying to shut down peaceful demonstrations. By the way, no-one on that panel, including myself had anything to do with the protests.


‘Malcolm Goes to the Mosque’

...sounds like a children’s story book title doesn’t it?

Sadly it is not. This is a case of our Prime Minister treating us all as ignorant little children. He seems to have forgotten the inconvenient truth that most of us are indeed adults, with a brain.


ISLAMIC WOMEN KNOW THEIR PLACE

... because no-one has told them otherwise

The discussion about Islam in Australia is very rarely a discussion about Islam. Commentators and politicians usually get bogged down in name calling along with tangents such as who are ‘good’ or ‘bad’ Muslims. It is time to cut through the rhetoric and actually have a debate about the ideology known as Islam.


Extreme Australia is coming

….and it has nothing to do with dangerous animals, crazy sports or hair-raising stunts!


Voters flocking to ALA

(A re-post of Kirralie Smith's column in The Daily Telegraph)

THE Daily Telegraph recently ran a story written by Catherine McGregor. That article quoted former PM Tony Abbott saying: “At the moment no ­serious senior conservative figure has come out and ­demanded the formation of a new political party to combat extremism."


A Vote For Labor Is A Vote For Islam

This week it was announced that counter-terrorism expert Anne Aly would contest the seat of Cowan in WA for Labor, in the upcoming federal election. In the Sydney Morning Herald Anne Aly said the national security debate had often been driven by the "politics of division and fear".


WHEN'S A CHARITY NOT A CHARITY?

When It's A Halal Of A Business

Halal certification is a profitable business not a charity. The Adelaide mosque has been found to be raking in approximately $200,000 a year as a halal certifier and doing so as a charity - avoiding taxes and other regulations.


THE APOLOGIST FOR ISLAM BETTER START APOLOGISING

Today the Sydney Morning Herald published yet another article by their Islamic poster boy Waleed Aly. The comment preceding the post on facebook said, “This isn’t really a conversation about Islam. It’s too transparent politically, and theologically illiterate – for that. The more interesting story here is one of a collapsing brand of politics.”


SENATE SUMMARY

Kirralie wraps up the Inquiry

Last week wrapped up the third and final hearing for the senate inquiry into the Third Party Certification of Food. It began in May this year and the report, including recommendations, will be presented on the 30th November.


CORY AND KIRRALIE WIN A SENATE INQUIRY

In all the hoo-haa of budget week Senator Cory Bernardi managed to put forward and win an inquiry into third party certification schemes in Australia. This is great news. It includes, but is not limited to, halal certification.


SO WHO INDOCTRINATED THE DOCTOR?

It is reported that Tareq Kamleh was attending the Thornlie mosque just weeks before joining Islamic State in Syria and claimed to have given up drinking and womanising for his faith. “At the time, he was one of the most immoral people I knew, in terms of promiscuity at least”, said one colleague.


TAXPAYERS FUND ISLAM EXCESSES

When halal organisations try to diffuse any suggestion of funding terrorism they like to point out that the money goes to Islamic mosques, Islamic schools and Islamic charities. So Cadbury, Nestle, Bega, Sanitarium, Byron Bay Cookies and hundreds more should feel really good about themselves because they are supporting the Islamic community in Australia. And you should too, right?


CADBURY'S GOING THROUGH A HALAL HELL

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.
