Every time you buy groceries from the supermarket it’s most likely you’re paying an Islamic tax to the government of Saudi Arabia. Today, around 80 per cent of supermarket food produce from Australia’s largest and most iconic brands are Halal Certified. An estimated 500 Australian based food companies pay this Islamic tax which is passed on to you at the checkout.

This tax, masquerading as Halal Certification, is a modern version of an Islamic tax called ‘Jizya’. It was first imposed by Muslims who had conquered non-Muslims, who became subservient to Muslims, but did not wish to convert to Islam. 

They paid the tax in order to have their lives spared and were then known as dhimmis. This institution has its roots in the origins of Islam, 1400 years ago.

Halal Certification fees can be viewed as a modern implementation of the Jizya tax on dhimmis via the supermarket shelf. 

Iconic names and brands like Woolworths, Coles, Aldi, Cadburys, Nestle, Kraft, Byron Bay Cookies, Kellogs, Sanitarium, Four and Twenty pies are among the household names collecting this jizya style tax from non Muslims in Australia.

Most companies are told by Islamic Halal Certifiers, that this is a fee to grow their export markets. The food producers who are coerced into paying these certification fees, have no clue or real understanding of the history of this Islamic tax or that they are being used as Jizya collectors (few food producers would have heard of the term). 

The certification fees are paid by the food producers but the cost is passed on to you, the consumer, by the retailer. 

When Mohammed began his career as a prophet, his first strategy was to try to persuade people to join him. Initially this was not a great success as he gained only around 11 new followers a year for the first 13 years. Once he moved to Medina however, his new tactic was to incorporate banditry into his religion.

His followers would attack and kill people and steal their wealth. 

This attracted far more followers and the money began to pour in, but there was a flaw in this new model... you can only kill and rob someone once. 

Then one day, Mohammed and his men attacked and looted a Jewish settlement named Khybar. The Jews there were skilled farmers and negotiated an agreement with Mohammed.

They suggested that, if he were to spare them, they would continue to work as ‘dhimmis' or semi-slaves and would pay him 50 per cent of their earnings as a form of tax, or protection money which became known as ‘Jizya’.

This new tactic gave Mohammed and the Muslims an ongoing source of income from his conquests, rather than just one off windfalls. 

This option was only allowed to Jews and Christians in Mohammed’s time, but it became so lucrative that when the Muslims conquered Northern India, much later on, they extended this system to the Hindus, even though it went against basic Islamic doctrine.

This tactic of forcing non-Muslims to pay a tax to Muslims has been the default Islamic position ever since. This was also a part of the larger strategy of economic warfare waged by Islam which would gradually bleed non-Muslims of any wealth and influence while strengthening Islam.


In recent times, this new and insidious scam has been surreptitiously rolled out without any fanfare, but has left most non-Muslims in the Western World now paying a tax to the Muslims through their food and product purchases. Opting out of this scheme has become incredibly difficult. 

The way it works is this:  Muslims approach food producers and manufacturers of almost every item that's sold and insist that they pay an ongoing fee to be able to continue to sell their produce and goods as Halal Certified.

If the producers refuse, they will be threatened with exclusion from Islamic export markets and boycotted by Muslims in the home market. This has already happened in Australia with devastating results.

Those who still refuse are labelled as bigots and Islamophobes. These sums of money are not inconsequential, we are talking about up to $40,000 per month for a single chicken producer.

When all the food producers and manufacturers in Australia are added up, we are talking about an enormous transfer of wealth from non-Muslims to Muslims.

The most worrying aspect of this whole sorry affair is that we have no guarantee that the money is not being used to fund violent jihad around the world against both Muslims and non-Muslims. Given the amount of Islamic violence currently raging, this is a very real concern.

In an article in the Sydney Morning Herald on 10th September 2005, it was reported that a conflict was raging between two rival Islamic groups in Australia over the rights to the lucrative Halal Certification business. The article quoted one Islamic group which had accused the other of using Halal Certification to fund extremists (aka terrorists).

That’s not an ill-informed non-Muslim accusation. It’s an accusation made by Muslims themselves. 

Mr Shafiq Khan, a powerful Australian Muslim businessman with links to the Saudi Government and the Islamic affairs Ministry, was challenged by local Turkish Islamic rivals for control of The Supreme Islamic Council of Halal Meat in Australia.  They accused Khan of having used Halal funds for his own business purposes.

The head of the AFIC at the time, Mr Amjad Mehboob, supported Mr Khan as it was feared it would be disclosed where the money from Halal rights was going.

The SMH reported that the Supreme Islamic Council of Halal Meat in Australia was in the hands of Mr Khan’s rivals who had taken him to court, and that neither he nor his backers in the AFIC were happy about it.

While they were careful not to name anyone, they had claimed that money from the Halal meat rights could end up in the hands of Islamic extremists.

"We have complained to the Saudi authorities that a handful of people are controlling millions of dollars coming into the organisation," Mr Mehboob said. "We know there are some groups that are spending heaps of money, bringing in people from abroad, radical and extremist imams, who are giving inflammatory talks in this country. Who is funding them?"

Again, it is not we who are saying this, it was the head of the largest Islamic organisation in Australia!

But today whenever concerned non-Muslims ask the same question, they are dismissed as ‘racists’ and ‘bigots’. 

It’s been shown in Canada, the USA, Europe and the UK that Halal Certification funds are laundered through tax exempt ‘charities'  before being diverted to proscribed terrorist organisations. 

Halal Certifiers have refused to answer where these millions in Halal taxes finish up. They often turn the question around by asking, “Do you ask Christian churches what they do with their money?”

The same SMH article explains how the Halal Certification fees are also funnelled back to the Islamic Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which uses its wealth to promote the spread of its Wahhabi view of Islam.

The Wahhabi sect of Islam is the same extreme sect as ISIS, the savage jihadists who we and our allies are currently at war with.

ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is a brother of the Saudi Wahhabis who prop up the House of Saud. Baghdadi's ruthless creed has clear roots in the 18th-century Arabian Peninsula. It was there that the Saud clan formed an alliance with the puritanical scholar Muhammed ibn Abd al-Wahhab.

And as they conquered the warring tribes of the desert, his austere interpretation of Islam became the foundation of the Saudi state. It still enforces the most radical form of Shariah law.

The Royal House of Saud now helps to fund the spread of Islam from the kingdom of Mecca and Medina, the two cities where Mohammed was originally based. 

There are numerous ways Saudis fund the spread of Islam with the goal of creating a global caliphate. There is clear evidence that Saudi money has funded ISIS, that's to be expected, yet the Saudis are now part of the coalition fighting ISIS because it has grown so quickly and has shown such ruthless savagery that the Saudi families are concerned for their own palaces and wealth.

The Saudi method of operation is what is known as ‘dawah’. This involves the building of mosques, and it also infiltrates non-Islamic Western institutions such as universities, political parties, associations, councils and Western economies (Halal Certification). 

The Jizya tax (Halal Certification) adds hundreds of dollars a year to the average Australian’s food bill. Globally, Halal Certification is already a $3 trillion per year industry and the Saudi governing body estimates it will be worth $10 trillion per year in 15 years' time.

That’s a lot of unearned money being extracted from Western nations, who only have themselves to blame. Our political parties look the other way, while arguing over a $7 medical co-payment or a 1c fuel levy designed to reduce our national debt. 

Apparently, a religious tax paid by Australian consumers that is laundered to a foreign country ruled by Shariah law is not worth confronting publicly or addressing in Parliament. 

This is what is known as a ‘sleeper’ issue our politicians will soon need to face rather than avoid.  


Islamic certifiers have convinced our food producers and manufacturers they need to pay this Jizya style tax to expand their export markets. This is a tax producers have been willing to pay for exposure to Middle East and Asian Muslim markets such as in Indonesia and Malaysia. 

This does not explain however why Australian consumers have to pay, without choice, an Islamic tax on iconic Australian brands within Australia.

Despite the fact that Muslims make up only 2.2% of the population they are able to impose a massive Islamic tax on all of us. So why do our producers and processors need to pay any halal tax at all? 

If a special interest group or organisation or religion wants a producer or manufacturer to modify a product for a specialist market the niche market should pay the producer for that modification, and not have the producer pay a fee.

What would Toyota, Ford or General Motors say if you walked in and asked to have them modify a standard production car to your specifications, and for them to pay you for the privilege? They’d rightly tell you that YOU should be be certified.

Our politicians, with an eye on export markets, say that it’s okay for individual food exporters to pay an Islamic tax to open up export markets. Where they fail their local constituents is that they look away when the local (non export) market is also forced to pay.

The failure by our politicians to seriously address this issue will come back to bite them at the polls as more and more Australians are saying, “enough is enough!”  

Australians are a generous lot, but they will not roll over to be treated as dhimmis, milked by a foreign, religious-based government, and used by local producers of household brand names they have trusted and supported for decades.


People say it's not our fault! SORRY is OUR fault They Invaded Europe before. Churchill warned us 80 years ago! The net is full of warnings and buildings come down killing thousands of "Infidels" ----- still not our fault,, we let them into our countries and give them free housing and food so they can multiply like Rats.If you wanted to be properly Politically correct, we'd have built walls arround their countries and then given them the tools to make their society viable,, they would never have been a threat then as each sect would set upon another as they have done since before Christ, theyeby keeping their population to a reasonable level,,, now because it's not our fault, they'll inherit the World ! Too many fools make a fucking mess !

What I want to know is, how do these self appointed Halal certifier's get away with it? They are laughing all the way to the bank and the laugh is on Australia.

Today, I received trademark registration papers for the word halal trademark No 1660367 And last week registered business name Australian Halal. to offer certificates including non halal ones for a fixed rate of $10 which will take a huge slice off the current scams. Next is how will i get it out as a media release, as am due to open the site for certificate orders after ironing out a few more minor details, the site will be at So sparks may fly soon and duplications done overseas. Feel free to join our fast growing party at btw good work Larry

This is one for keeps. Now spread it wide and far and make sure the enemedia and the multiculti-brigades get their noses rubbed in it.

The rise and fall of barbarians is like global warming - its been happening for thousands of years and its not our fault. Gotta hang on and keep fighting to retain our identity and integrity against a rising tide of shit. Do that and we win eventually but it may take a while

Harry, is there a way you can get all politicians, in Canberra to start with, to read your article?

Wouldn’t it be GREAT if PM Abbott gave a speech like THIS

On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:
"In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslims then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law.
"Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicide bombings of America, England, Holland, France and even Russia, if we are to survive as a nation.
"The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.
"When this honourable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians and never will adapt."

The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.

Would our ALP and Green Politicians give Abbott a five minute standing ovation??

Still no Halal bacon in Woolies as yet.

ah - my bad. Agree that the Labor victory wasn't Naphine's fault.

bb - I think you're confusing elections. The last Victorian election was on 27 Nov 2010, which the Libs surprisingly won. Baillieu went in as Premier, and resigned during the government's term, being replaced by Naphine.

Fed gov did not help but Vic Libs did not promote themselves well enough or aggressively enough. free halal trademark

Brekkie time great pub around the corner does $5 bacon and eggs, plus $10 pig on a spit for dinner. ttfn

Bill Bates, IMHO the real issue is Hockey and his talk about the "age of entitlement", they need to talk being broke some more and then ask for suggestions about spending cuts.

We are about to enter something worse than the great depression.

Chinese GFC

Bolt is better than the communists but is not right about everything

Wake up guys this will not stop until we stop it.

TREASON DELIBERATE, PREMEDITATED TREASON BY THE COMMUNISTS. The educated, ruling left wing elites who infest our university humanities departments and the policy committees of the ALP, Watermelons, Socialist Forum, Fabian Socialists, Socialist Alliance and Socialist Alternative actually did know all this (they include history professors after all) in advance when they dreamed up multi culti in the late 1960s and had Grasby/Whitlam feed this cow shit to us all. The Trotskyite Termites and Bolshevik wood Borers were planning the destruction of our culture, economy and society from within, on day one and nothing has ever changed. Q, Why do they ALWAYS have the sewerage touch? Why do their policies ALWAYS produce perverse outcomes? Or results counter intuitive to stated principles? A, TREASON.

if they don't say anything else for a year or so, then maybe if they ask voters for ideas about spending cuts acceptable to them? they will have some cuts the voters won't punish them for at the next election
