...and all it took was a mutual scam

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


It seems that Arabs and Jews are avowed enemies until it comes to sharing in a world-wide scam like a food tax. Since The Pickering Post published its 13 Part Halal certification expose earlier this year, the Federal Government has moved to establish a Parliamentary inquiry into all forms of food certification including halal. 

The six month inquiry by the Senate Standing Committee on Economics will also cover certification schemes for kosher foods, organic products and genetically modified foods among others.

We all know it isn't organic food certification which has prompted the inquiry and we're pretty sure it isn't genetically modified certification that’s upset supermarket consumers.

Could it possibly have been vegan certification? Hmm, maybe the Heart Foundation’s ‘tick of approval’, or weight watchers or that gluten free stuff? Don't think so!

Whichever it is that’s prompted the Senate inquiry, there are too many special interest groups and faith-based mobs that have their teeth firmly embedded in our food chain to the combined tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. Only a fool would think that sort of money impost on the food industry isn’t passed on to we the consumers.

Food producers brush off food certification as another form of market specific "advertising". Every business operator knows that any cost impost on production, marketing and distribution must be added to the end price. 

Any food producer who says that the hundreds of millions of dollars in food certification costs is not passed on to the consumer is lying. 

The mountains of feedback I’m getting indicates it’s mainly faith-based food certification that has got the nation’s blood boiling... in particular, halal certification. Aussies don’t want to keep funding the growth of Islam, an ideology involving Sharia law, jihad, sex slavery and intolerance... all of which are which are at odds with basic Australian values. 

Our investigations, with the input of Kirralie Smith of Halal Choices and others - including anti-halal certification whistleblowers* within the Muslim community - have exposed that halal certifiers are using your grocery money to fund the growth of Islamic schools, mosques, bringing hate preachers to Australia and other global "Islamic causes", as well as the admitted personal enrichment of private certifying Islamic businessmen.

(*Not all Muslims support the money-making halal scam. Many see it as diametrically opposed to Islamic teachings)  

Is it really the role of our once proud food producers to fund Islamic growth? (eg. Nestle, Cadburys, Kraft, Kellogg's, Allowrie, Meadow Lea, Dairy Farmers, White Wings, Masterfoods, Mainland, etc.)

Is it the function of our supermarkets; Woolworths, Coles, Aldi, IGA, Franklins and Foodland to redirect your grocery money to Islam, or even Jewish causes, because that’s exactly what’s happening. 

Your food money is now being redirected overseas via halal certifiers donating to Islamic "charities" in a complex web of bank accounts that ends up in the hands of proscribed Islamic terrorist organisations (reference: ABC Lateline, ABC 7:30 Report, CIA, FBI, IRS, US government, UK government, Israeli government, US court findings, French court findings, Canadian court and government findings and independent media reports). 

These links are easily found by an online search. It is the duty of all Muslims to push for the expansion of Islam to create a global caliphate. This is a directive of the Qur’an. 

Yet, when reporters ask the Australian Crime Commission, the Australian Federal Police or AUSTRAC if halal money funds terrorism, they get the stock standard answer, “We have no evidence of….”. 

Well of course they have no bloody evidence of. That’s the way the circuitous money trail has been designed... to obfuscate. Once the funds are moved overseas to accounts in Islamic countries, our blokes haven’t got a hope. Crooks and terrorists are many steps ahead of our local authorities, and our boys know it.

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is a global independent intergovernmental body that develops policies to protect the global financial system against money laundering and terrorist financing. FATF recommendations are recognised as the standard for global anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing. The Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) references FATF for its intelligence on terrorist funding. 

The FATF said terror funding is undertaken by exploiting legitimate charities where funds raised for charitable purposes are diverted to individuals or groups associated with terrorism. Sham charities are common. In a number of cases the charity collects funds intended for humanitarian aid or welfare relief but a percentage is specifically earmarked for the financing of terrorists. 

Many of the implicated “charities” form part of a complex web, moving funds between multiple accounts held by various charities, sister charities, companies (both legitimate and fictitious) and individuals. Multiple conduits are used in the country of money origin and transferred across different jurisdictions, before eventually being transmitted to the intended recipient(s) – terrorists.

Funds are first deposited into the bank accounts of charities, or of individuals associated with charities, before being transferred using cash deposits, wire transfers or other remittance schemes. 

AUSTRAC lists “financial contributions through formal charitable donations” as one of the three most common methods by which terrorism funds are raised within Australia.

Islamic charities are the most common cause of funding terrorism, admitted to by our own Agencies. Australian halal certifiers donate large funds to these charities, some with motherhood titles such as "Human Appeals International" or more Islamic titles such as the "Al Imdaad Foundation". 

You can see some of the Islamic charities with links to terrorism here:

Part 12 of our halal series, "The Terror Tax", shows clearly how just one of our Halal certifiers, "Halal Certification Authority Pty Ltd", donates money to one globally linked Islamic charity which has ties to Hamas.

Our incompetent media choose to look away, relying on stories by young, naïve and clueless kids who prefer to not dig into the facts.

Instead they follow a politically correct agenda of hopeful superficiality that makes old school, hardened journos cringe.

One tactic by these reporters-in-denial is to ask Jewish kosher certifiers if they support an inquiry into halal certification. That is akin to asking a Kings Cross nightclub owner if he supports an inquiry into…the nightclub industry. 

When senior rabbis are asked their views they are quick to accuse anti-halal campaigners of being "ignorant and prejudiced". Well, they would say that wouldn’t they?

You see, inside material sent to The Pickering Post reveals the kosher boys are tucked tightly up  in bed with the halal boys. 

Deals have been done between halal certifiers and Kashrut authorities (aka kosher certifiers) to share data and market intelligence for the mutual benefit of both parties.  

It’s now in their mutual interests to share tactics and strategies to get both their greedy teeth even deeper into your food money. It’s about increasing market share and their bottom line. 

For example, the Australian Jewish kosher certifier, Kosher VeYosher, has joined with the Islamic halal certifier, Halal Certification Authority Pty Ltd, sharing business intelligence in the pursuit of higher profits.

Kosher VeYosher states, "We share information from audits and research costs and contacts for investigating foods produced in every corner of the globe."

They say politics makes for strange bedfellows. Hmmm, so too does scammed money. 

The problem for the kosher boys is that they are assisting with the attempted destruction of their own people. Money the kosher boys help to raise for their new business partner is partly donated to an Islamic charity with direct ties to Hamas.

The Hamas Covenant, also known as Hamas Charter, states, "... our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious" and it calls for, "the eventual creation of an Islamic State in Palestine, in place of Israel and the Palestinian Territories, and the obliteration or dissolution of Israel."

It emphasises the importance of jihad stating in article 13, "There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavours.” 

Also from the Charter:
The Destruction of Israel: 
"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it." 

The Call to Jihad: "The day the enemies usurp part of Moslem land, Jihad becomes the individual duty of every Moslem. In the face of the Jews' usurpation, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised." (Article 15).

Anti-Semitic Incitement: "The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight Jews and kill them. Then, the Jews will hide behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees will cry out: 'Oh, Moslem, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.' " (Article 7)

I wonder what the Australian Jewish community makes of this very unholy food tax alliance?

And what about the Muslim community?

What do they make of Mr Mohamed El Mouelhy cutting a deal with the Jewish Kosher boys to personally enrich himself (“Halal certification has made me a millionaire" - Today Tonight.)? Is this alliance permissible within the teachings of the Qur’an? 

So the next time you see or read about a Rabbi defending halal certification, nod your head and say to yourself, “Yep, of course he does.” 

If you want to have your say on halal or other food certifications, your best opportunity is right now. 

Make a submission, show your concern to the Senate Standing Committees on Economics here:



Furthermore the 85% of kosher slaughter that does not measure up is sold for non-Jewish consumption at the prevailing market price or less so if anything kosher certification likely subsidizes non-kosher consumers. Without this recovery avenue kosher meat would be even more expensive.

Certification monies obtained are not at anyone's expense except its Jewish consumers. Do you think some high volume consumer good like say Smiths Chips is going to increase because they pay $1000 or $5000 or $10000 a year for a kosher certifier to be onsite to supervise machinery is washed out or whatever that most probably has to be done for existing health or other audits?

You and your mates here are just full of it. You are just addicted to anti-Semitism.

Pickering - what an avenue for all the Nazi cockroaches to crawl out from under the floor boards whenever some Jew hits the news. Kosher certification has been in Australia for over 50yrs. No kosher certification fees affect the price of anything they certify except foodstuffs specifically of interest to orthodox Jews like say the meats from kosher animals. These things must bear a label otherwise it defeats the purpose of the exercise. People wouldn't buy kosher meat if it exists in a supermarket because the burden of its costs is borne by its specific consumers. Of the meat that is kosher slaughtered only about 15% is released as kosher because of the stringent demands of the Jewish cannon regarding inspection for blemishes and the need for rapid uninterrupted passage of the kill act.

Israel shuts abattoir after cruelty claims - The decision came following a request from Australian veterinary authorities, who received footage and details from rights group Animals Australia of the alleged violations. - See more at:

I also draw your attention to the latest investigation by AA in Israel and about the way they too as horrendously cruel to animals needlessly because they are defencless and are giving up their lives to feed their people - a bit of compassion would go a long way.And we see true nature of people in the way they treat animals. Anyone I know who ill treats a dog or cat etc gets short charp message from me and mine that it is not acceptable and Un-Australian.

WHY is Iranian born Sam Dastyari CHAIRING the Government Inquiry into Halal Certification along with other concerns?
Well it is unclear whether he is a muslim, but we do know that he was born in Sari, Mazandaran province to an ethnic Azeri father and Persian mother - Dastyari arrived in Australia aged 5 years.
His parents were student activists in the 1979 Iranian revolution.
The majority of Azeris are followers of Shia Islam. Azeris are thought to be more intense in their expression of religious ritual than their Persian counterparts. However, Azeris are less inclined to Islamism. This is evidenced by the fact that just before revolution Azeris followed either Mohammad Kazem Shariatmadari or Kho'i, both traditionalist jurists. In contrast, Persians followed more radical Ruhollah Khomeini

Well we do know that he voted AGAINST having an Inquiry on the halal certification schemes... So why put him in the Chair?
Sam could have more knowledge of the culture, norms and dietary rules of all the different Islamic sects - and must know that there is no agreement of what 'authentic halal actually is... Some allow stunning before Halal Ritual slaughter, but the majority vehemently Reject any form of stunning and demand zabihah - no stun, hand held Ritual Slaughter.
What very much concerns me, having spoken to many muslims about halal, is that Sam Dastyari is quite young: b.28 July 1983 - and many young Muslims are unaware that before his lifetime there was no such thing as Halal Certification at all... Halal Certificates are a New Innovation - And many older Muslims would say they are Bid'ah - worse than sins, because the concept of issuing certificates assumes that nothing is halal - unless it passes a particular self appointed Halal Certification Authorities standard
I do hope that he is Open Minded; truly into Freedom of Choice for ALL; Tolerant of the need & desire of conventional products & services for Non-muslims; and truly believing in Equality in Australia for Everyone.
I must say that I have been reading through some of his contributions to other Inquiries eg. The senate inquiry into tax minimisation & tax avoidance - and I was quite impressed with what he had to say.…
However, he has also been proved to be quite naive too eg. When the whistleblower who brought Craig Thomson to justice, Kathy Jackson, claims she warned former Labor general secretary, Sam Dastyari, before the 2010 election not to preselect Thomson because allegations that he had spent union money was true. In fact Craig Thomson had lied, cheated and stolen money, yet Now-Senator Dastyari approved the spending of $300,000 of Labor Party money on Thomson’s legal fees for defamation action. Quote:
“Unfortunately, myself and others were taken for a ride by Craig Thomson who has proven a very consistent liar,” Mr Dastyari said.…/craig…/story-fncynjr2-1226864783735
We need to write to him and ask where he stands on halal certification schemes being applied to All when they are only relevant to the Muslim community!

G7 helpless in the face of mathematically certain bankruptcy
Benjamin Fulford - June 8th 2015:
The leaders of the Group of Seven Industrialized Nations or G7 are holding an emergency meeting in Germany in a futile attempt to avoid their inevitable bankruptcy. The leaders talk about Greece, the Ukraine, China, the Middle East and other matters as if somehow they are still in control. The leaders need to understand that there is a thing out there called reality and, no matter how long you try to avoid it, it has a way of catching up to you. The fact is that, with the exceptions of Canada, Japan and Germany, the G7 nations and their allied Western states have been running a deficit with the rest of the world for the past 40 years. The elephant in the room that nobody talks about is the fact the biggest debtor of all is the Corporate United States............"

PAA - I can't see the difference between the Qur'an and the Talmud. Here's a Jew raised at the feet of the Hasidic fathers and speaks plainly about the falsehoods. I'm not affiliated with this man or his cause; it's just that he rings a truthful bell:

Larry,I think the gene pool on here needs more chlorine and definitely more anti fungus.The last time I heard this much irrational twaddle I was listening to Bill Short-on.The anti Jewish drivel is consiste with what it takes to believe in Mo-hammered and/or labor policies.Just because you come out second best in a transaction,which you should be smart enough to recognize before you leap,you blame all your stupidity on someone's religion(whether or not he practices it ) Don't blame your own ineptness at life,it was because he was Jewish.....You stupid irrational morons,there's a mosque near you looking for converts...No IQ..definitely an asset.

Yup!~ Just pop 'em in yer portable methane generator and Voila! But why are you bothering with PP when your in idyllic surroundings?

Good luck with that! Your a braver soul than me Gunga Din, lol.

...its the principle of it all "Patriot"...I don't want to pay one iota for someones religious beliefs...

common purpose is they are both scum to the core and we would do well to be rid of the bastards collectively in a nice paired package.

I am not sure Dante whose voice grates on me more...Kevvie wins in the supercilious, sanctimonious, snivelling 'punch me in the face' stakes imho.

Oh god no! Morbid curiosity may get the better of me, lol. What time is this 'soap opera' on dare I ask?

Me too.....I need to anaethesise my brain and try to watch it. I might be able to handle it provided Gillarse doe not talk too much.

Haha...& i thought it was me & too many shots of bourbon, lol.

I have reposted the Halal Choices website article re Halal V Kosher fees etc.

Seems my earlier post 'disappeared' into thin air, so I repeat:
“Kosher is primarily for a Jewish market and is usually very clearly identifiable on the label or is in a separate section all together. There are also Kosher supermarkets so consumers have a choice as to whether or not they wish to purchase products where a product has been subject to kosher practices or fees have been paid. Consumers have a choice.
This is not the case with halal certification. Many companies are paying the fees but not displaying the fact on their labels. There is no ability to choose whether or not you want to support and fund halal practices. There is often not a separate section for halal and so many products are halal certified that would already be considered halal (permissible) without the certificate! The consumer is left with very little choice.
Kosher is not about undermining the principles and values the majority of Australians uphold and they are not trying to change or dominate Australia in any way. I have never heard a Rabbi preach death to democracy or kill the infidel. However there are many Imams in Australia and around the world who have preached these very things. Last year it was reported that children as young as six were reciting these things in an Australian mosque!
Synagogues in Australia are not preaching sermons of hate toward westerners or unbelievers. They are not radicalising their youth with messages of violence and death. Terrorist plots are not being uncovered in synagogues. How many photos have you seen of Jewish people holding the severed heads of their enemies?
However the money raised via halal certification is funding mosques and Islamic preachers in some cases who do in fact promote messages of violence and death toward unbelievers. Their teaching upholds Mohamed as the perfect human and all must follow his example. Children in Islamic schools are facing segregation, having pianos banned as 'evil' and girls can't compete in athletics lest they lose their virginity!
Kosher is for a Jewish market targeting Jewish consumers. Halal certification targets all consumers in an effort to transfer wealth from non-Muslims to Muslims.”
