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.
Horrific footage has emerged of "vicious attacks" at a halal slaughterhouse where animals had their throats hacked at with saws. Other footage shows sheep being kicked in the face by staff and a worker standing on the neck of a conscious animal.
Dr. Huseyin Kami Buyukozer, Patron of the World Halal Council states, “The term (halal) belongs to Muslims only and governments have no right to regulate, interfere with or define halal in any way. Muslims and non-Muslims alike have to understand that the New World Order will only rise on Halal and Tayyib!”
The word "halal" simply means “permissible”. Outside of Sharia Law “halal” as a concept does not even exist. Halal certification is a recent invention that is now spinning an estimated $3 trillion a year! While many are just in it for the money, others are using it to strategically and deliberately subject people to Sharia Law.
More than 70 per cent of all chicken slaughtered in Australia is done according to Sharia Law. This means Islamic principles and rituals. Baiada/Steggles and Ingham have more than 70 per cent of the market share and there are other chicken companies like Red Lea who also halal certify their chickens.
Halal as a concept only exists because of Sharia Law. If there was no Islamic Sharia Law there would be no such thing as halal. “Halal” is simply a word that means lawful or permissible. There is no problem with Muslims eating halal food in this or any other country. The problem with halal certification is that producers pay fees to claim a product is “halal”.
In 2012 Imam Habib Bewley delivered a Khutba (sermon) about the rort of Halal Certification. This Imam is from the Jumu’a Mosque of Capetown in South Africa. An “African Mosques” website says, “The Friday khutbas of Shaykh Habib Bewley are a source of education and guidance for the local community and beyond, with hundreds of people attending the Jumu’a and thousands accessing them through the website of the Mosque.”
A few weeks ago Chris Smith interviewed me on Sydney’s 2GB radio along with a Mr Ahmed Kalini from the ‘halal-certification industry’, as he was introduced to listeners. Mr Kalini was trying to insist that halal certification fees are miniscule and are not passed on to the consumer. I disagreed.
There is a lot of confusion about supermarket meat and whether or not it is halal certified. The thing is in a lot of cases the meat they source is in fact halal slaughtered and fees are paid. The supermarkets cannot label the meat as such though because the meat is then transported, stored or sold along with haram (forbidden) items such as pork.
I want to make it clear that I would never endorse, condone, or encourage the use of someone else’s trademark. That is an unlawful activity and is punishable by court order.
It would seem some halal certification agencies are getting a little nervous about the recent backlash towards unnecessary halal certification fees and the fact many Aussies are waking up to the rort.
Despite the fact that neither the Koran nor the Hadiths require money to be paid out in fees for halal certification it is massive, worldwide and an extremely lucrative industry. Make no mistake, the money raised is used to fund, in part or whole, the push for Shariah Law in Australia and around the world.
About five years ago it was suggested to me that food products with the little Arabic looking symbol on it could be funding terrorism. That sounded outrageous at the time. I was also told Cadbury and Vegemite carried the halal certification symbol on them. So I went home to investigate.
A small town country mum and wife of an electrician is slowly but surely, and single-handedly, dismantling the evil of Islamic Halal Certification. Governments have refused to act to stop an extortion racket that has permeated our food chains and increased our shopping costs. It started with the hideously cruel halal slaughter of our livestock but has retrogressed to practically everything we buy, including plastic containers.
After doing some research I discovered that while there are reports that halal certification actually began in the 1960s it didn’t take off until the 1980s.
