Islamic clerics blast halal accreditation (Part 4)

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.


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.

The ‘Voice of Islam’ in Zimbabwe says in response to halal certification corruption allegations in Indonesia: 

“This haram fraudulent ‘halal’ certificate racket is not confined to Indonesia. It is an endemic disease of corruption which exists also in South Africa and in all countries where the devil’s agents (the halal certifiers) pollute and bedevil the Muslim community. 

“The haram shenanigans of this evil breed of Satan are no longer secrets. All of these ‘clerics’ have sold their soul for the sake of the haram boodle (improper money), to which they have become addicted. 

“While they have made Muslims carrion addicts, they themselves have become haram boodle addicts. Every iota of fear for Allah has been expunged from their hearts.”

“No longer are they able to distinguish between halal and haram. This does not concern them. As long as the boodle arrives, it matters not how or from where.” 

“Having lost every vestige of inhibition over haram, the ignoramuses in the community consume even pork labelled as ‘halal’. In fact, they will gobble up even faeces if beautifully packed and adorned with a ‘halal’ logo.” 

Imam Habib Bewley from Capetown, South Africa, expresses the view of many Muslims:

“We have all been shocked by recent developments in the news concerning the abuse of halal certification and the fraudulent labelling of pork products as halal by certain unscrupulous persons.

“But it is important that we do not let the details of the case at hand, or the particulars of the parties involved, distract us from the essence of the matter, from the true problem with which we are confronted… halal certification itself.”

Habib Bewley continued, “And from humble beginnings, the halal stamp or halal certificate has become big, big business and it has developed into its own industry, an industry according to the International Market Bureau of Canada, that is worth billions every year, and brings in tens of millions of rand into the coffers of the organisations who are in charge of doing it here in South Africa.”

These statements are indicative of the wave of Islamic objections to the halal scam. The anger leveled at the certifiers by clerics is hostile and with good reason… note just one of these SA certifying organisations that states on its website: 

“Only halal food and beverages approved by us are to be served, sold, stored and or processed on the approved premises. In the event of private purchases by stores, this will be permitted only from suppliers who have been explicitly approved by us.”

These bastards are expressly forbidding businesses, shops and restaurants from purchasing goods from sources other than those they approve of. And, by extension, they have declared all non-approved goods as forbidden haram. In other words they are doing exactly what their Allah commands them not to do.

Allah says, “Do not make haram the good things Allah has made halal for you.”

The Prophet Mohammed himself ate the meat of the Jews without questioning them as to how they slaughtered it. But the Prophet at that time had not yet figured out how the halal scam works.

In Islam there is no equivalent of a Christian pope or any single “infallible” leader who can decree an inviolable law.

Any Muslim can declare himself a leader and interpret the Qu’ran to his liking. 

A different interpretation by the more powerful leader demands the killing of followers of the lesser leader. And that is why in Islam there are so many who aspire to leadership and why Islam remains in such disintegrated chaos.

Imams and Muftis are simply people to whom (they say) Allah has granted knowledge of His rulings. It is their duty to freely transmit that knowledge to other Muslims, and not allow it to be withheld and sold to the highest bidder.

As one Muslim cleric put it: “They cannot sell rulings because they are not theirs to sell, they are Allah’s. And thus they cannot charge people a premium for ruling their products to be halal. 

"By doing so, they are doing exactly what Allah criticised the rabbis of the Jewish faith for doing, when He said: ‘Do not sell My signs for a paltry price’.”

It is totally reprehensible to make a profit from the selective issuing of privately perceived rulings of the Prophet. And the fact that such exorbitant fees are charged for halal “services” puts average Muslims at a distinct financial disadvantage in the market place because the price the companies have to pay is passed directly to the consumer. 

Food carrying the halal logo almost always tends to be more expensive than that without it.

Halal certification has become a form of tax fraud, taking money from the pockets of ordinary Muslims and non-Muslims and putting it into the coffers of the halal certifying bandits.

Many small Muslim businesses also have suffered financially as a result of halal certification: Before the halal stamp became widespread, almost all Muslims used to purchase their meat from their local unaccredited butcher who knew his meat was halal but could never afford the certification fees. 

But, since the advent of the halal logo, non-Muslim businesses have stolen the majority of those butchers' customers by paying the certification fees, displaying the logo and cornering the Muslim market forcing the already halal butcher out of business.

And those few halal shops and restaurants that remain are greeted with suspicion because of their lack of certification. 

No longer is a Muslim cleric’s word taken at face value that food is halal. As a consequence of this, Muslims are now asked to trust a logo more than the word of an Imam or Mufti. 

No wonder they’re bloody angry.

Is it now becoming clearer why the average Muslim hates the halal certifying fraud? It has certainly been a revelation to me!

When the Prophet Mohammed was given that sheep to eat by a Jewess of the Khaybar tribe after he had defeated them, he did not ask where the meat had come from or how it was slaughtered. 

He would have eaten it were it not for the fact that the meat itself had “told him” it was poisoned.

There is justifiable suspicion that the halal logo itself is fraudulent as it is often forged and transferred from one product to another without the consumer’s knowledge. Companies who buy these logos are solely interested in the bottom line – halal legitimacy is not a factor.

Indeed, it might be said that the existence of halal stamps has caused Muslims to consume a lot more haram food than they would have otherwise.

Islam has its basis in fraud. Today, Muslim scholars will agree to speak out in favour of Shariah banking in return for a well-paid seat on the bank’s board. (Follow the Bendigo Bank saga.) 

Muslim societies of the past were well aware of these dangers and used to guard against the corruption of their scholars by paying them huge salaries so that they would not feel the need to accept bribes.

But today there is no-one to pay them but themselves, and no-one to govern them but themselves, so the temptation to line their pockets is irresistible. 

And no matter how Allah-fearing the current crop of Muslim clerics may be, the system they have allowed to evolve has opened the door for a rash of unprincipled individuals. 

The dash for Allah’s tax is now becoming ludicrous as halal logos are being bought and affixed to products such as water, tooth picks and black pepper.

Satanic influence has clouded the original intent of halal and it has become a bastardised extortion racket without any allusion whatsoever to the teachings of Islam. 

It has attracted the worst of opportunistic Muslims who are happy to disadvantage their own kind.

But Islam itself is perhaps most to blame because it is headless and fractured, there is no definable leader who can sit in judgment on Muslims as a whole. 

There is no over-riding body to decide who should be excommunicated as a result of evil-doing or sacrilege against Allah. 

For Islam there is only one symbol of law and it’s embedded in its own insignia… the sword.

Witness the soon-to-be-killed, self-appointed leader of the ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Al-Qaeda, Saudi Arabia and Israel
February 4, 2015

Exclusive: Saudi Arabia is under a new cloud after a jailed al-Qaeda operative implicated senior Saudi officials as collaborators with the terror group – and the shadow could even darken the political future of Israeli Prime Netanyahu because of his odd-couple alliance with Riyadh, reports Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry

The disclosure that convicted al-Qaeda operative Zacarias Moussaoui has identified leading members of the Saudi government as financers of the terrorist network potentially reshapes how Americans will perceive events in the Middle East and creates a risk for Israel’s Likud government which has forged an unlikely alliance with some of these same Saudis.

According to a story in the New York Times on Wednesday, Moussaoui said in a prison deposition that he was directed in 1998 or 1999 by Qaeda leaders in Afghanistan to create a digital database of the group’s donors and that the list included Prince Turki al-Faisal, then Saudi intelligence chief; Prince Bandar bin Sultan, longtime Saudi ambassador to the United States; Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, a prominent billionaire investor; and many leading clerics.

“Sheikh Osama wanted to keep a record who give money,” Moussaoui said in imperfect English — “who is to be listened to or who contributed to the jihad.”

Although Moussaoui’s credibility came under immediate attack from the Saudi kingdom, his assertions mesh with accounts from members of the U.S. Congress who have seen a secret portion of the 9/11 report that addresses alleged Saudi support for al-Qaeda.

Further complicating the predicament for Saudi Arabia is that, more recently, Saudi and other Persian Gulf oil sheikdoms have been identified as backers of Sunni militants fighting in Syria to overthrow the largely secular regime of President Bashar al-Assad. The major rebel force benefiting from this support is al-Nusra Front, al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria.

In other words, the Saudis appear to have continued a covert relationship with al-Qaeda-connected jihadists to the present day.

The Israeli Exposure

And, like the Saudis, the Israelis have sided with the Sunni militants in Syria because the Israelis share the Saudi view that Iran and the so-called “Shiite crescent” – reaching from Tehran and Baghdad to Damascus and Beirut – is the greatest threat to their interests in the Middle East.

That shared concern has pushed Israel and Saudi Arabia into a de facto alliance, though the collaboration between Jerusalem and Riyadh has been mostly kept out of the public eye. Still, it has occasionally peeked out from under the covers as the two governments deploy their complementary assets – Saudi oil and money and Israeli political and media clout – in areas where they have mutual interests...................

wiseone, this is a great concern. The man is SPINELESS...pathetic specimen of humanity BECAUSE he cannot stand as a man in his own merit, he must 'align' himself as such in order to be 'seen to be doing the PC thing'.. makes me want to puke.

................and our Government cant see this con !

Allah's Broadcasting Station should be shut down and the staff dismissed. There's simply no need for so called government broadcasting. A total waste of our money.

The Saudi-Israeli Superpower

....The twin crises in Syria and Egypt have marked the emergence of a new superpower coalition in the Middle East, the odd-couple alliance of Israel and Saudi Arabia, with Jordon serving as an intermediary and the Persian Gulf oil sheikdoms playing a supporting role.

The potential impact of this new coalition can barely be overstated, with Israel bringing to the table its remarkable propaganda skills and its unparalleled influence over U.S. foreign policy and Saudi Arabia tapping into its vast reservoir of petrodollars and exploiting its global financial networks. Together the two countries are now shaping international responses to the conflicts in Syria and Egypt, but that may only be the start.

Though Israel and Saudi Arabia have had historic differences – one a Jewish religious state and the other embracing the ultraconservative Wahhabi version of Sunni Islam – the two countries have found, more recently, that their interests intersect....

Iraqi Army Downs 2 UK Planes Carrying Weapons for ISIL

...........The senior Iraqi legislator further unveiled that the government in Baghdad is receiving daily reports from people and security forces in al-Anbar province on numerous flights by the US-led coalition planes that airdrop weapons and supplies for ISIL in terrorist-held areas.

The Iraqi lawmaker further noted the cause of such western aids to the terrorist group, and explained that the US prefers a chaotic situation in Anbar Province which is near the cities of Karbala and Baghdad as it does not want the ISIL crisis to come to an end.

Earlier today, a senior Iraqi provincial official lashed out at the western countries and their regional allies for supporting Takfiri terrorists in Iraq, revealing that US and Israeli-made weapons have been discovered from the areas purged of ISIL terrorists..............

Tman. That's a "few thousand plotters" too many. Ban or severely cut their immigration to this country . Deport all returning jihadists and their families along with hate preaching radicalising imams .

Tman - the only reason those drug traffickers were arrested was BECAUSE of the Australian Government (Howard and AFP). Having made the arrests, no doubt the Indonesians are annoyed the Australian government, under pressure, has said, 'oh don't do it ' - The Indonesians have every right to tell the Australian Govt shysters to go F themselves. I maintain the primary cause of the the problem is in fact the Australian government - on multiple fronts - we are being run by a bunch of criminal psychopaths - try working in Govt and find out for yourself. The inhouse fraud is simply staggering

Old Mo sounds better.

OT - Sharia-Compliant Finance Funds Jihad
Turn your clock back 70 years. Imagine that Wall Street banks and brokerages sold Nuremberg-compliant bonds and stock funds in 1938. American Nazi sympathizers bought financial instruments certified by Berlin-based advisors as free of “Jewish profits” from, say, Salomon Brothers and Bloomingdale’s.

In turn, a percentage of such funds’ gains underwrote pro-Nazi charities, like the German-American Bund, and similar organizations in the Fatherland, like the Hitler Youth.

US worried about jihad terror activity in UK Sharia banks

Sharia banking should be outlawed.

It regrettable that on the massive bookshelves of George Brandis there is not a contemporary Australian history volume, he may have avoided the latest Abbott Government side show.
ICAC investigation and resignation
Greiner decided to offer Liberal-turned-independent MP Terry Metherell an executive position in the Environmental Protection Authority. If Metherell accepted the position, he would have to resign his parliamentary seat, which the Liberal Party was confident of winning in a by-election

The pressure led to Greiner moving that the Assembly refer the matter to ICAC. The inquiry began on 5 May, and following detailed evidence by Metherell that his resignation was part of a package negotiated. Greiner resigned as Premier of NSW

When the series is complete, could all 12 parts be compiled into a single PDF that can be sent to CEOs, GMs and boards of directors of scammed companies? It would be great for them to see just how naive and gullible they all are.

'Indonesian Government regulation' - there is your answer. it's called criminality. It also highlights the Australian governments complicity in agreeing to (probably even suggesting ) the idea. The greatest promoter of sharia law in Indonesia is the Australian Government. Witness Aceh funding to rebuilt a known islamic terrorist hotbed (thanks Johnnie). Witness Australia government attacks on Buddhists in Sri Lanka and Myanmar for defending themselves from muslims (Gillard Rudd and Abbott). In so many ways Australia is a hub of islamic terrorism worldwide - headed by Abbott/Shorten/ Abu the Godfather/ Duncan Clueless of ASIO/ the Catholic Church (and other Christian organisations)/ Milne and SHYster - and then they complain about Indonesian applying it to shoot a few drug traffickers.

Revelation 13:17 says : "so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name".
