Misconceptions about Halal Certification

...oh well, there's always Biri Halal Sex Shop

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.

It was brought to my attention that Halal Australia has dedicated a whole page on their website trying to address what they say are "misconceptions" about halal certification in Australia.

It is a fascinating read.

They state:

“The pure and unaltered teachings of Islam as well as the tradition of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) encourage a harmonious and peaceful way of life and forbid injustice or aggression against any living creature, whether animal or human being. Instead, we are taught to have respect for all – regardless of religious beliefs, race, or ethnicity.”

I am curious as to which teachings they are referring to here. Perhaps some early verses of the Qu’ran allude to such peace but it is a well-known fact that later verses abrogate or replace these peaceful verses with violence and horrific calls to rape and murder.

Muslims are strongly urged to follow the example of the prophet.

That is the most concerning factor of all as we know Muhammad would not be considered an outstanding member of our society, in fact he would be incarcerated as a very serious criminal.

Recent media attention surrounding halal certification has given such Islamic agencies reason to feel nervous. You see halal certification is like the handle on the door. It is something that affects every single consumer in Australia.

Whether we like it or not we are funding Islamic religious practices with our everyday shopping purchases. When we start to question that it then opens the door to start questioning the religious ideology behind it. So while terrorism, child brides, female genital mutilation, polygamy and beheadings don’t mean much to most of us in our day to day life, halal certification hits us where it hurts, our back pockets. And the general public is asking questions.

Why are these agencies certifying products like white milk, honey, nuts, grains, fruits and vegetables that are already halal (permissible)?

This week Maleny Dairies announced on their facebook page that they would not pay halal certification fees as they realise it is an unnecessary expense. They received over 20,000 likes in one day. It is time other companies woke up and realised they don’t have to pay these fees either. They do add costs and processes that in some cases are time consuming, money draining, wasteful and unwanted by many Australian consumers.

Why is it that companies have to sign non-disclosure contracts to ensure they won’t tell anyone how much it costs?

Why isn’t it promoted on the labels?

On the Halal Australia website they say “To the best of their knowledge the cost is not passed on to the consumer”?

How then do chicken processers absorb $40,000 a year without passing it on?

What about the abattoirs that pay $27,000 per month in halal certification fees?

I am sorry I don’t think companies pay these fees out of the goodness of their hearts and not pass them on.

So where does the money go? Why not show us the books? Which charities do they support? How is the money benefitting the wider community? Of course they are not going to admit supporting any questionable or illegal activities!

Stating the obvious doesn’t allay average Aussies’ concerns that this money goes to mosques and schools where children may be taught to chant ‘death to democracy’ or be subject to underage marriage.

At the very least why is it expected that all Aussies have to see their hard earned dollars go towards funding a religious practice that has no relevance to daily life?


Doogle do some research it is NOT a factual religious observance. It is an extortion racket started in about the late 1960s in the USA to extort money from EVERYONE. The Quran clearly shows that it is not required
Surah 5.5 states This day are [all] good things made lawful for you. The food of those who
have received the Scripture (Christians and Jews)is lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them.
Apart from Pork (which is banned in the bible too) alcohol certain fish and meat from carnivores all other food is permissible (halal) under Islamic Law. This Halal certification racket is designed by racketeers to extort money from Muslims and Non Muslims alike to the tune of $3 Trillion a year world wide. Ritual slaughter is only required at the Hajj

What misconceptions are possible, it is factually a religious observance and practice, it is factually an islamic sharia requirement, it is factually being imposed on and costing everyone who purchases the products. It is factual that no companies absorb costs if they are in the for profit sector. It is highly offensive to those who are not islamic, it is against our laws to force religious ideology on others, and I amongst many others refuse to contribute a single cent to islamic anything.

It's always fun to grab a few pork products (Bacon,Sausages, etc) when in a supermarket & place them conveniently in between* the halal"scam"certification meats. *under the1st layer is good, hopefully they see them when they grab what they want because in no way will they buy it then, And it's good for a laugh if you see them touch a pork product.

Here are contact details for Flerieu Milk Sales Manager. Send him an email and congratulate them on removing this rotten ISIL funding certification from their product. A reminder that again we have our own servicemen in these pestilential countries "helping" them. Wait till we hear about the next Aussie killed over there, and then consider what product you purchased helped to kill that soldier. Sales Manager Nick Hutchinson

My wife now goes to Coles and Woolies twice a week and fills up a large shopping trolley with (mostly Halal) products, gets to the checkout and asks the girl to tell her which goods are 'Halal'. When she can't tell her which ones are she simply walks away saying very loudly. "I am not buying Halal certified products". and leaves the store.

For Ratfink: Lea & Perrins is owned by Heinz and they have numerous products that carry the Halal Certification. I have written to them for a list of these products, but so far no response.

Congrats., Kirralie, SA yoghurt firm caves in on Halal. And so they should, fueling the enemies' coffers, the traitors. SAME company but on ABC site with mainly pro-halal stacking. Hopefully social media comment storms against the halal certification racket are on the increase.

See here - not so much the article as the responses. Seems to me an ever larger number of ordinary people are waking up not only to the halal scam but to the insidious agenda of that political system posing as a religion - Islam. It's things like the overall responses to the article that has long made me confident that the west will one day get up on its hind legs and squish these cockroaches.

Why is there halal products? That's easy to work out, The left (Labor party) and the Greens Love to be looked upon as caring politically correct stand up people here in Australia and around the world. What they don't seem to realize is that the Halal tax enables the setup of Muslim strongholds. You only have to look at country's like England,Germany, France, Belgium and other European country's to know that the radicals and terrorists in these country's and elsewhere around the world are financed by the Halal tax. If Australia lets this tax to continue we will endure the same fate as other country's are now facing. If you don't agree I would like to challenge you to do this, Take a brief stroll around Bankstown, Auburn, Lakemba holding a bible and asking people why am I paying Halal tax.

Just had an email from a friend in Casino, NSW. He says this, "I are very careful what we buy, and we pass the word around, our local stores are trying to sell halal stuff at 50% off cause it won’t sell here, and we make sure that anyone in earshot hears us say “ look at this more Halal”,

Perfection milk is owned by Dairy Farmers I just found out so that too is halal certified

Just emailed this to Vittoria coffee, if I get a reply I will post it here. Dear sir, I used to really enjoy your coffee and have used it for many years, however since I recently discovered that you contribute to the halal certification it now makes me physically sick to see your products on the shelf in the supermarket. I dumped a large bag of coffee beans today and will in future be purchasing coffee that doesn't contribute to this obnoxious ideology. I am spreading the word amongst my small community and they too are dumping your product. If you decide not to be a part of this certification in the future then please make it public and you might get some of your old customers back

Just emailed this to Vittoria coffee, if I get a reply I will post it here.

Just been to my local grocery store, every cheese I picked up was Halal. All I walked out with was fresh asparagus. Anyone know which cheese is non Halal?

Am on a tour of Tasmania. No way I'm including a visit to that traitorous halal terrorist loving chocolate company Cadbury's. They can stick their chocolate & haven't bought it for over 2 years no matter how low it's discounted.

I've heard that everything in Aldi is halal certified, don't go near the place now.

Apparently Schweppes is non halal for the flavoured mineral water. The word halal means pure apparently so water would be naturally halal and no need for certification, same as bananas!

Beware name changes, I have been trying to find some coffee that is not halal certified and and found one called Carte Noire, didn't buy any but the name Mondelez was on the packet, looked this up and guess what, it is Kraft which is mostly halal certified so I avoid this one. Bushels seems ok, Nescafe is halal so I have thrown that out, same too for Vittoria which I used to like for cappucino.
