If you would like to be involved or support the upkeep and further development of this site, it would be very welcome no matter how small.


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.


One of many ignorant shock jocks opining on claims that halal certification fees go to terrorist groups: “Of course there’s no proof of that”, said Hadley somebugger. But the Arab Bank (a prolific advertiser on Sydney’s 2GB radio station) was found liable in Linde v. Arab Bank, PLC in September last year for funding 24 separate terrorist attacks. Well done Mr Hadley!

And you might like to note the following, it is the 2013 Annual report signed off by the President of the Islamic Council of WA, (Dr) Rateb Jneid:

“... Our Halal subcommittee now is functional and income starts coming Alhamdulillah (meaning ‘all Praise and thanks be to God’). 

“Our next aim is to expand Halal certification for local and international business insha’Allah (God willing).

“In our Masjid (mosque), many activities were conducted by our resident Imam Hisham Obeid.

“Over the year the Masjid has continued to assist other associations by allowing the facility (halal certification setup) to be used, Alhamdullah.”

(Dr) Jneib’s annual report continued, “During the year ICWA (the Islamic Council of WA) has made ongoing donations to Syria because of the difficult civil conditions.

"The donations were made through al Imdaad charity, to ensure that no recriminations could be directed at ICWA.”

Sgd Dr Rateb Jneid
President- Islamic Council of WA

Okay, obviously an unintended slip of the pen, but just who is this President (Dr) Rateb Jneid (forget the Dr bit, they all give themselves false titles) and what exactly is this al Imdaad charity?

Hang on to your hat!

Al Imdaad is a well-known international sham charity that distributes funds to Syria (ISIS), Hamas, the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood and many other Jihadist groups. It has recently concentrated its efforts helping to support ISIS and has branches in South Africa, right across Europe and North America.

Al Imdaad goes to extreme lengths to project itself as a charitable organisation. In fact it is anything but a charity and is linked to the infamous IRFAN (International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy).

In 2012-13, al Imdaad's UK branch raised over £400,000 for a Turkish charity known to fund terrorism. It has also given over £50,000 to the Zamzam Foundation, a Somali charity run by the Saudi-funded Somali Muslim Brotherhood.

Between 2005 and 2009, IRFAN-Canada transferred approximately $14.5 million to various terrorist organisations including Hamas.

On April 29, last year, The Honourable Steven Blaney, the Canadian Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, announced that the Government had listed the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy as a terrorist entity under the Criminal Code.

Since then Canada has broken up the Islamic scams, laid charges and cancelled their charity (tax free) status with al Imdaad, IRFAN and a dozen smaller offshoots now unable to operate in Canada.

But they remain free to operate elsewhere including in the UK and France (where there are electoral considerations) using kindly and compassionate names like “Orphans in Need”, “Human Relief Foundation” and “Muslim Hands”.

All are tax-free shams proven to support terrorist groups.

In Australia, the “Human Appeal International” charity operates freely using smaller “feeder” charities to assist in laundering funds to terrorist groups. HAI has 14 offices world-wide including local offices in Australia at Lakemba (Sydney), Coburg (Melbourne) and Mile End (Adelaide).

In a written statement, the Attorney-General's office said these groups, "... do have some legitimate social and charitable activities" and that the challenge "is to identify that component of funding which might be directed to terrorist activities" .

In December 2011, “Human Appeal (Australia)” hosted an event which featured the hate preacher Haitham al-Haddad as a guest speaker. Al-Haddad regards Jews as, "enemies of god, and descendants of apes and pigs", and disregards any form of peace until "Allah's will governs the whole earth, and for no other law to remain."

Haddad deems homosexuality a crime and supports the subjugation of women, telling them: "you must obey [your husband]."

Human Appeal (Australia) raises much of its funds through an annual concert called ‘Sounds of Light’, held at the end of each year at Flemington Racecourse Melbourne, Olympic Park Sydney, Adelaide Town Hall and Riverside Theatre, Perth.

A major ‘Gold’ sponsor of Sounds of Light is Halal Helpline ( An annual Gold sponsorship is $20,000.

Halal Helpline is owned and run by, wait for it, none other than rogue halal certifier, Mohamed El Mouelhy of the Halal Certification Authority Pty Ltd.

Funding terrorism attracts a ten year jail term Mr El Mouelhy, so you’d better grab your toothbrush and a cake of soap.

Okay, so now to this (Dr) Rateb Jneid, President of the Islamic Council of WA:

Mr Jneid was claimed to be the kingpin when WA Police cracked a major methamphetamine trafficking syndicate after a four-month probe netted more than $8 million worth of the drug ice, $380,000 in cash and a number of unlicensed firearms.

Mr Jneid's sons Ziad and Rabih have long been persons of interest for WA Police and have resulted in a number of raids.
Detectives from the WA Organised Crime Squad led the latest protracted sting with a series of raids on properties in Kewdale, Munster and Bibra Lake.

Police say they suspect profits from the drug syndicate were finding their way to Jihadist organisations overseas.

Liam Ducey of WA said five men and a woman had been charged, including the President of the WA Islamic Council, (Dr) Rateb Jneid.

Incredibly the ABC, despite a comprehensive Police report, managed to cover the entire news item without once mentioning an Islamic connection or that one of those charged was the President of the Islamic Council of WA who admitted to funding the Syrian conflict using the al Imdaad "charity". That’s our independent ABC, I guess.

As part of the “Countering Violent Extremism Program”, the Australian Government handed out over $4.2 million in taxpayer funds in just one year to 52 different Muslim “charitable” organisations plus tens of millions annually to mosques and private Islamic schools, much of which is unaccounted for, except in one case that raised suspicion, a Sydney mosque was ordered to repay $9 million. Hmmm.

The 13 part investigation on how halal fees fund terrorism is at


I saw a news item a few weeks ago in which an Imam for the Religion of, throat slitting, Pedophilia practicing prisoner burning and other Peaceful practices, are now permitted to use toilet paper. It is now HALAL...Guess what their next move will be, if not already done...Islamic HALAL tax every time you go to the toilet.. Islamic tax on the food you eat and another when you get rid of it. And the Government think I am OK with an extra tax to fund the introduction of this Death Cult called ISLAM .....NEVER...

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners and bikers by the actions of a few lunatics.

Funny how that works

Islam is a cancer which Australia must deal with. Instead of referring to Islamic State, incidences should be described correctly as "Followers of Islam". Pretty simple, Accurate,Truthful. This would stop the Diluting of the threat that is real and present.

Could references to Halal be instead referred to as Islamic Tax. Surely this could not offend, and those of us that do not wish to start learning more Arabic words can use a plain English labeling of goods. Let the Public decide.

Interesting to read breaking news that several (Tony, you appeaser, what is the plural of "lone wolf") Islamists have been arrested plotting ANZAC day terrorist attacks. Such good news that "the religion of peace and goodwill" are being so thoughtful as to attack us on a public holiday.

thats it i new i seen it somewhere

yes the labelling is very dubious from all quarters

Just had some Mission flat bread wraps for tea. No marking on the pack. Checked non halal. There it is. As you say, this incorrect labeling is not right.

Well THORN, halal choices says they're ok but non says they're bad. So I don't know. Here's the other site to look at. Artnott's are listed in the middle section.

It's working for me. Make sure you don't have an adobe flash plug in blocked. It won't run without it enabled.

tomo, you may have found Arnott's on the non halal website. It appears to be listed.

Prior to the twin viruses of global warming fraud and Islam (as a peaceful religion) becoming entrenched in peoples minds, political correctness and stupidity have to drive common sense and reality out the back door. Only the watchful have resisted the subtle invasion of the west by these two religions of fraud and evil.

Finally I can read PP,been locked out for two weeks.Got some catching up by the look of it.

"Mo was an utter asshole even by standards of the day." You may be right with that comment, Hadenuff, but in being a total asshole, he knew the mentality of the local Arabian Peninsula tribes well enough to be absolutely certain that in telling them that they should do their utmost to emulate him in every way, they would fall over themselves to do so. And they enthusiastically continue to do so. To this day.

I read an item somewhere where the Indonesian Government has raised concerns about money from Australia being used to fund terrorism in Indonesia. I am not sure where this money comes from, but halal licensing would be a good guess.

Heard Hadley sucking up to his local muslimsomething group at Annangrove this morning after they donated some money .. he thinks its great they have a muslim prayer hall that are peace loving people .. really Ray >
Pretty damn shortsighted I would think .

The 2 illegals in Fairfield that were arrested a few months back & who were planning a beaheading were part of a muslime/ hate prayer hall pal ... PEACEFUL my butt ..

Shows how brain dead the alpbc people are many are homosexuals. How will they go with their beloved mohumMADist's sharia.

Check out Rinaldos post on climate change its a must read

Larry I have to tell you that the Saturday West published an apology to "Dr" Rateb Jneid for implying in a story published on 29th May 2014 that he was involved in drug trafficking (the usual blah blah). It calls to mind an apology that The Australian was forced to make to Ms Gillard and a good journo was sacked for being truthful.

Climate Change Minister Greg Combet directed tens of millions of dollars to Australia’s largest wind turbine operator owned by the union movement’s Industry Super Holdings Pty. Ltd. that he directed prior to entering government. ......"

Larry well done. I have been repeating it over and over, the Australian Govt is an Islamic Terrorist organisation. Abbott is operating on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood, and breaking the law in funding Islamic State, in Australia and overseas. Abbott is in the process of appointing an lskamic Ayaytollah to head the Australian Defence Forces. The Australian Federal Police celebrate islamic supremacy including ramadan, every year. ASIO embraces sharia law. Joyce has now threatened to ban Aussies from eating food unless they pay the moslem mafia the illegal tax. Welcome to Abbotts Auschwitz Australia, Hitler and mengele had nothing on this mob. Sharia law is illegal under Australia law. Self defence isn't The criminals who have hijacked this country are asking for some nasty retribution.
