In the 4 corners program (30/5/11) the presenter noted that the slaughtermen were trained in Australia and the equipment they used came from Australia. How proud are we particularly when Part 2 showed that killing animals without stunning is allowed in some slaughterhouses in Australia AND halal killing using short lasting reversible electrical stunning may be almost as bad!
Part 2 also published Islam’s halal slaughter laws and appended text which clearly shows Islam’s sadism and blood lust. Australia should be like Switzerland, Sweden, Norway and Iceland and BAN slaughter without stunning -though the 'reversible' electrical stunning is also a concern! They survive and so could we by developing a reputation for HUMANE, hygienic meat slaughter which would be welcome worldwide including by non-Muslims in the Islamic world.
This article looks at other problems with halal meat production –the dedication of meat to allah; Muslim slaughtermen; Islamic control; the transfer of funds from US to Islamic groups as we inadvertently and unwillingly pay for inspections and certifications WE do NOT need; halal and the Muslim Brotherhood; immigration; the immoral failure to label halal meat HALAL or 'MUSLIM KILL' in big letters right to the END consumer and the need to preserve our secular society.
Meat dedicated to allah and his prophet.
Before the poor animal is slaughtered (this also applies to ‘white’ meat eg chicken and rabbit) the Muslim slaughterman or some Muslim chants over it either the bismillah (in the name of Allah) or the shahada, the Muslim creedal statement (there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger), making the meat halal (allowed).
*koran 6:121 “And do not eat that (meat) on which Allah’s name has not been pronounced.”
Some might say that if you don’t believe it what difference does it make? Well, you are paying to import Muslim slaughtermen while ordinary Auzzies are out of a job as the Islamic market takes over; you pay to alter slaughterhouses and processes to suit Islamic needs;
- you pay an Islamic religious food tax as you cover the cost of Islamic inspections and certification adding huge wealth directly (most certifiers are linked to mosques) or indirectly (via zakat) to the Islamic dawa and jihad movement;
- you facilitate the spread of Islam and imposition of sharia over us all –this is Islamization; Sharia and Islam have attitudes, practices and laws unacceptable in a civilised society.
- you facilitate the Islamic control of food production and further Islam’s economic control.
AND, any spread of Islamic control in Australia or in the world really is VERY BAD for all non-Muslims!
Any lack of concern and unwitting purchase of halal food has very serious consequences over time.
As a non-religious person I do NOT under any circumstances want to consume anything dedicated to allah/Mohammad whom I regard as evil and whose ideology offers me death or conversion to Islam! I also have rights. If Muslims can demand halal then we, the MAJORITY, can certainly demand NO halal food!
Many religious groups also would NOT want to eat food dedicated to allah .
The Christian god pronounced all food good , rejecting restrictive food laws. Why would Christians want sharia’s restrictive food laws imposed?
In Christianity it is NOT what goes into you that defiles you but what you profess and do that counts (Mark 7:14-23 / Matthew 15:10-20).
Christians accept all food with thanksgiving (1 Timothy 4:3-5) as the Christians trapped in the Islamic world must for the food is halal but they rededicate it and give thanks to the Christian god. Christians are also told to eat food when guests where nothing has been said about the history of the meat (ignorance is bliss) but once you know it has been dedicated to idols ... then don’t eat (1 Cor 10:27-29). While 1 Corinthians 8:1 – 10 discusses the problem of eating food dedicated to idols and given at pagan festivals, the CONTEXT of eating the food becomes important because you are joining and submitting to an idol or different ‘god’ and the evil behind it. Acts 15:28-29 also supports abstaining from food dedicated to idols (replace idol with allah who is NOT the god of Judaism or Christianity).
Hence there is a general principle where food is good BUT there is also a problem of CONTEXT so in practice food should NOT always be eaten – ie food sacrificed to idols -- to eat such food is to participate in idol worship. Remember Muslims carryout a series of ancient pagan rites in their hajj, including walking around the kaba multiple times and kissing the black stone encased in its stainless steel labia (or whatever). This is simply stone idol worship as the stone is revered and accorded powers. Text reveals considerable ‘paganism’ in Islam.
**When people eat Halal meat dedicated to allah they are conned into participating in worshipping allah, giving allah supremacy and submitting to sharia while paying into Islamic coffers at the same time.
In my reading of Christian text, I believe Christians should REJECT halal meat because of the context of consumption, the implications and dangerous longterm consequences.
**All non-Muslim groups need to unite and REJECT the imposition of allah worship via halal meat, sharia, and the payment of an Islamic religious food tax. Instead, demand that OUR rights to non-halal food are satisfied!
The bloodlust of the Eid al-Adha festival of sacrifice with mass halal slaughter.
Westerners should also NOT participate in the blood sacrifice of the Eid al-Adha festival (end of Hajj) here or overseas. The blood sacrifice comes from the story of Abraham being willing to sacrifice his son Ishmael (yes they plagiarise the old stories and pervert them - koran 37.100-106) but then allah ‘ransomed him with a great sacrifice (ie a ram)’ (Koran 37.107). This blood sacrifice where Muslims get an animal and slit its throat is continued each year with the mass HALAL slaughter of animals. In Pakistan alone ~ 2006 over 20 million animals were slaughtered (Bhatti 2006)
'Muslims living in Western countries who are unable to perform the holy ritual can now buy a sacrificial animal over the Internet, and even watch it being slaughtered according to the Sharia, or Islamic law.
"It is not easy for them to buy animals and carry out the sacrifice according to our religious rites in those countries," said Sohail Ahmed, an official at the Al-Khidmat trust Islamic welfare organization, which offers the service.....
Muslims abroad and at home buy via the internet.
"We have a dedicated IP address and people can watch the sacrifice no matter which country they are in," said organization official Shakeel Dehalvi. (mpacuk)
This annual mass sadism is used to train children to lose all sympathy or empathy as they participate in slaughtering the animal they may have cared for.
‘Children used to wait months to touch and look after an animal. The animals were given names, decorated with garlands and colors, and even "marry Eid" (merry Eid?) was written in color on the animals' body and emotional outbursts were seen on the day of their sacrifice.’(Bhatti 2006)
To describe this blood sacrifice as beyond barbaric is an understatement. We should have NO part in such ‘festivals’ frequently promoted here under the guise of ‘multiculturalism’ or ’how to return to Islamic barbarity.’ Technically a small portion of the meat should be given to the poor (though apparently today it all ends up in the freezer for later use), BUT this doesn’t override the sheer sadism of the mass HALAL slaughter. (The 7.30pm Report, ABC, Thursday 11/10/07 exposed the horror)
But of course no ‘ritual’ slaughter of animals by cutting their throat goes on in ‘Australian’ backyards.
(note the sadism extends to non-Muslim human animals as well during this festival – read Circe 2010)
The 4 Corners (30/5/11) expose reveals that the slaughtermen involved were ‘trained in Australia!’ This should cause immediate concern. I am told by an industry representative that workers are imported, trained and given a 26 week visa. Obviously they are NOT skilled slaughtermen BEFORE they arrive as they require training and looking at the 4 Corners program one could argue that they are NOT skilled post training either so why are they here?
Who finds them? On what basis are they selected? Who carries out a thorough security check or is NO security check done at all ---a reference from the local imam perhaps..?
Who employs them? Who pays to bring them into Australia? Who pays to train them or is their training passed on to us as well? Who does the training –presumably a Muslim group as they must do the killing according to sharia so more money to Muslims? How extensive is their training –poor looking at 4 Corners?
In the case of R v Mohammed  VSC 423 (8 November 2004) in the Supreme Court of Australia, where Muslim Mohammad Mustaf Mohammed stabbed a person to death and very seriously multiply stabbed two others at the abattoir where he worked as a Halal slaughterman, we find this statement on his training from the judge–
You then obtained employment at the Yarrawonga Abattoir. You had no previous experience as a slaughterman. You had two to three days' training, and commenced work at the abattoir four to five weeks before the incident.
Hmm, 2-3 days training and none of it in anger control. As Nicolai Sennels has shown (Struening 2009), part of the Muslim mindset is to respond to any perceived insult with violence –and in this case to continue the violence to uninvolved others who happened along! (Note this case is really worth reading for the incredible violence and endless excuses– see references for website. He had lived in Australia for 2 years)
BUT, of concern in this article is the clear lack of training of HALAL slaughtermen who cut the throats of unstunned or ‘short-term reversibly’ stunned animals. No wonder animals are incorrectly cut and incorrectly stunned. Imagine the animals’ agony as they were fully conscious or regained consciousness! (part 2)
Further concerns include -Who pays for their accommodation, food, health care etc while here or do we share this extra expense as well? Are we paying to construct prayer rooms and facilities for ablutions at the workplace etc? Who supervises their behaviour during and outside work – remember these people come from cultures very different to ours!
Who ensures they return home when their visa expires? How many apply to remain in Australia and are accepted, bringing in their family? How many remain illegally?
Indeed the questions just go on in this hidden industry that appears to be under Islamic control with only rubber stamp Australian Government involvement to put a logo on the carcass or meat package.
There is an enormous array of costs involved outside the cost of changes to the killing floor and other processing required for halal slaughter. How much of these totally unnecessary costs are passed in higher prices to us yet WE do NOT want HALAL meat ? How much money is creamed off by Muslims in various capacities?
“two of the largest and most reputable halal certifying bodies in Australia; the Islamic Coordinating Council of Victoria (ICCV) and the Supreme Islamic Council of Halal Meat in Australia (SICHMA).....”
“The slaughterers must carry a special slaughter card and receive special approval for slaughter after undergoing training on halal slaughter. ICCV required that a full-time supervisor be present at all times in the plants they certified. The two scholars questioned ICCV and SICHMA whether they currently employed any slaughterers with deviated beliefs or belonged to one of the deviated sects. The two organizations confirmed that no such individuals are currently employed as slaughterers. The halal certifying bodies were also selective when choosing a slaughterer and made attempts to ensure that he is a practicing Muslim.(abdullahnana 2010 Report by 2 Muslim scholars who toured over 10 Australian halal slaughterhouses and spoke to certifiers)
It appears we are NOT importing skilled people but take any ‘devout Muslim’ and train them HERE!
It seems that Muslim organisations select and employ the slaughtermen (presumably they travel overseas??) and that this is an extremely discriminatory process where any deemed ‘insufficiently Muslim’ don’t get a job –nor do non-Muslims! And of course ‘devout’ Muslims are just what we want....
**In this discriminatory practice of employing unskilled ‘devout’ Muslims only, often from overseas, who exactly has benefitted?
Such discrimination can spread from the slaughter floor into the boning areas and other areas of meat preparation where to remain halal certain conditions must be met and being handled by a kuffar isn’t one of them!
Control: total Islamic control is the aim.
The Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS), introduced a halal program in 1983, the ‘Australian Government Supervised Muslim Slaughter (AGSMS)’ for exported halal meat and meat products. The government also tacks onto the meat a halal stamp and certificate. But who is really in control?
‘AQIS has identified a number of Islamic organisations to be responsible for the provision of halal inspection, supervision and certification services for meat and meat products for export. As well as ensuring only practicing Muslim slaughtermen are employed to perform the slaughtering and supervisory work, these organisations provide guidance and expertise on Islamic Sharia and interpretation of halal principles.’
Export -The AGSMS program ensures identification and segregation of meat derived from animals slaughtered by a registered Muslim slaughtermen, in accordance with Islamic rites. Muslim slaughtermen must be registered with AUS-MEAT, and be authorised by a recognized Islamic organisation. AUS-MEAT issues the Muslim slaughterman with an identity card, which must be shown to an authorised AQIS officer upon request.
Applications for AGSMS program approval can only be made by those establishments registered for export under the Export Control Act 1982. Applications must be directed to AQIS in accordance with the relevant requirements contained in the Export Meat Orders and after approval from a recognised Islamic organization.
Halal meat loaded for final export receives an official halal meat certificate signed by both an AQIS authorised officer and a representative of an AQIS recognised Islamic organisation. (Alshakshir 2008 – an Australian Muslim)
The system is open to corruption at all levels! It needs thorough, disinterested investigation and transparency.
Who is responsible for ensuring that Australian rules protecting animals are adhered to or rules for the hygienic treatment of meat? How often are inspections made and by whom? What happens if a slaughterhouse or meat processor has breached the rules? Whose rules are complied with - Islamic rules or Australian rules?
Who checks the cleaning of machinery (eg deboning machines)–does it comply with our standards or with Islamic requirements where no alcohol can be used? Remember this meat is also being sold to US!
Government inspectors also need to ensure that halal requirements are met --- so are these GOVERNMENT inspectors also Muslim possibly with their own ideas of what is acceptable?
Even compliance with sharia seems unreliable.
'Some certifying bodies have a full-time staff and carry out regular inspections because of their close proximity to the plant, whereas other certifying bodies are run only by one person who is sometimes thousands of miles from the slaughterhouse he is certifying'.(Abdullahnana 2010 –visiting US imams)
'Discussion with those who work behind the scenes in the halal meat industry reveals that, although Australian law regulates the handling of halal meat, some Muslim individuals remain hasty in adhering to and implementing the rules. Two former slaughtermen, Amr and Firas, spoke with Crescent Times:
“It is all about the trust. You can only police the situation for a certain time,” they said.
“Sometimes it dies before slaughter, and they just say let it go,” and it gets certified as halal.
They also narrated an incident where a government supervisor was doing his job as an inspector and noticed that a Muslim slaughterman had breached an Islamic condition for halal slaughtering. When the inspector expressed his concern, the Muslim slaughterman got defensive and claimed he knew better.
Obligations for halal slaughter include:
1-The slaughterman must be practising and approved by a religious authority.
2-Halal slaughter should be physically separated from non-Halal slaughter to avoid any contamination
3-Muslim slaughtermen must be able to offer their regular, Friday and two Eid prayers.
4-The method of chicken slaughtering must concur with Islamic conventions
5-An animal slaughtered by halal method must not die (ie when stunned) before it is Islamically slaughtered
Abattoirs, cooling and boning areas also have their own sets of rules. (Alshakshir 2008)
An Australian Muslim writer and 2 visiting USA imams seem to agree on who is in control, who can be employed and how (un)reliable the system is.
A Muslim on the chat site re halal slaughter in Australia complained –
“Going one time to visit some plants run by non Muslims, transported by non Muslims and sale by Non Muslims where is the credibility of Zabiha which is a religious requirement for Muslims and it has to be under Muslim control. “
And added other complaints as well –
“How many times they spot check whether the lamb is still alive after stunning during 8 hour shift?. Stunning is not accepted by every Muslim. Non-stunning is accepted by every Muslims. We have many experienced and expert in the field Muftisaheban in USA who do NOT think stunning is Halal. (Minhaj 2011) (Zabiha -killing meat for Muslims)
Minhaj also noted the availability of unstunned fresh meat locally competing against the Australian product, particularly when there are also concerns over the cutting of the meat at the point of sale.
We may soon see the entire industry taken over by Islam including transport, plant ownership, processing and points of sale with the possible refusal to stun to make the meat truly HALAL! What can we do if Muslims control the industry? We have already compromised our ethical standards of animal welfare. How far will our degeneration into Islamic barbarity go?
Australia’s Domestic Halal Meat Market: Do we have any idea what is going on?
According to two former slaughtermen interviewed by Crescent Times, Firas and Amr, and after investigation, it appears that official government bodies for the supervision of the domestic halal meat market do not exist.
Some of the recognised Australian Muslim Halal certifying bodies operating in the domestic halal meat market include: Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC), Halal Certification Authority Australia (HCAA), World Halal Forum (WHF), International Halal Industry Alliance (IHI), Islamic Coordinating council of Victoria (ICCV) and Australian Halal Food Services (AHFS). (Alshakshir 2008)
Unstunned, halal slaughtered meat from Victoria goes into the domestic market (Edwards 2007) as does reversibly stunned halal meat left over from the export market.
Meat is labelled as halal or Muslim Kill with certification logos and a number and this should be on the carcass or on the end of the sealed carton of meat received by the butcher or processor. We need to ensure that the HALAL/Muslim Kill label remains attached to that meat AFTER it has been cut up or ground so WE know it was killed according to sharia by Muslim men and dedicated to allah with a religious food tax being paid to Islamic groups. Hence all meat coming off a halal line MUST remain labelled halal or MUSLIM KILL right to the end user if we are to choose NOT to submit to Islam and pay for doing so!!!
According to a communication with the Australian Meat Industry council passed on to me,
“At any given time the production of Halal certified meat in Australia can vary depending on commercial viabilities within the trade.
In general terms 100% of all goat processing, 85% of sheep and lambs and somewhere upwards of 50% of cattle would be processed to meet the requirements of Islam. About 65% of cattle processed are exported whilst sheep and goat meat is greater again. Many processing companies maintain their Halal certification for 100% of their kill as it is just easier to manage and so much of the product even if it is not labeled Halal is eligible to be.”
And this is how it's done in Australia. Humane Halal slaughter? (Warning - Graphic content)
We need to ensure that any product ‘eligible to be labelled Halal or MUSLIM KILL’ IS labelled HALAL or MUSLIM KILL and stays that way! As the figures show a high proportion of animals killed are killed according to sharia and a significant proportion of that comes to the domestic market.
Terrorism, the Muslim brotherhood and halal
This article is extensively quoted as it says it all –although this is France and of course it’s not happening here...
But CBN News has discovered that some of that money is funneled to groups tied to terrorism. Why would a butcher shop care if it was being photographed? One reason, according to an Islamic expert we consulted, may have been that our camera operator, who is not a Muslim, was unclean and this was a halal butcher shop.
Halal is the Arabic term meaning legal or permissible. For meat to be halal, a Muslim must chant, "In the name of Allah; Allah is the Greatest," before slitting the throat of a fully conscious animal with a knife, and while facing the direction of Mecca. (Hurd 2011)
According to some experts, a portion of the proceeds from halal food sales in France go to groups tied to terrorism.
When a French consumer buys Halal food, part of the price paid goes as a fee to Halal Islamic experts. Some of those experts are certified by the UOIF, the Union of the Islamic Organizations in France, which the Simon Wiesenthal Center reports has strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a transnational political organization that supports terrorism.
When French journalist and author Alexandre del Valle began investigating how the Muslim Brotherhood was attempting a mafia-style takeover of France's Halal food industry, his life was threatened.
"Nearly 60 percent of halal food is controlled by organizations belonging to the Muslim brotherhood," he explained.
Halal food is also spreading throughout Britain. A London Daily Mail investigation found that Britain's major supermarket chains, fast-food restaurants, even some hospitals and schools were serving halal food without telling those who were eating it.
Some British parliament members were outraged to learn they were secretly served halal meat.
In Canada, Campbell's now sells a line of halal-certified products. And In the United States, McDonald's, Walmart, and Whole Foods also offer halal choices. .....
In North America, one of the halal certification organizations is the Islamic Society of North America. ISNA was an un-indicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror trial because of its ties to the terror group Hamas, which is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.
One of the objections to halal food is that it contains a tax that non-Muslims pay when they buy it.
Journalist Del Valle said Halal food has been a brilliant political and business strategy for the Muslim Brotherhood.
"The food was two victories in one. We split people. We divide two societies inside a society. And we make money," he said. (Hurd 2011)
Some Muslim Brotherhood members came here as refugees because they were ‘persecuted’ in Egypt. Sheik Hilali was recently photographed with Iran’s leader and 44 members of the Muslim Brotherhood in a cosy meeting in Iran. But gee aren’t they just harmless secular Muslims?
Any money going to these Muslim organisations endangers our freedom, values, culture, equality and open democracy as the money is used in dawa, propaganda, jihad and the extension of Islam via mosques, Islamic schools, infiltration and a financially greased influence in politics, universities, schools, businesses etc. Don’t buy ANY food with a halal stamp as you are paying a religious food tax to Islam.
Maintaining our secular society:
France's second largest fast food chain, Quick, now serves halal-only menus in 22 of its restaurants, targeting France's large Muslim population.
But Quick's halal burger stands in France are almost completely owned by the French government, which means the government, whose constitution mandates strict secularism, is in the religious food business.
Leading the fight against Quick's sale of halal food is Charles Aslangul, a 21-year old city councilman, college student, and president of the Republican Order.
"We respect all religions, but I want to maintain the wall between the French state and the religious, and between a state-owned company and a religious food product. This should not happen with public money," he told CBN News.
When Aslangul began his campaign, he said the media treated him like a fascist. He was eventually charged with hate speech. A court found him innocent, and now the young French politician is suing Quick for false accusation.
"Islam is trying to impose itself in the public area. I am not stigmatizing Islam. I am simply describing the situation when Islam's radical wing tries to impose itself over our republican laws," he explained.
"Islam is introducing sharia into our society and that's not clear for people," Alain Wagner, a French activist with the Alliance Against Sharia, said. "When you see halal food in shops you think, 'Oh, it's just a kind of food.' No. it's sharia... Some say halal food is no different than Kosher, but Wagner disagrees. "No, it's not like kosher food. Kosher-eating people are not preaching for the destruction of democracy. Halal is sharia. And we need to ban any sharia-related thing in our society," he said. (Hurd 2011)
Halal IS sharia and the involvement of our government in the halal business via its ‘halal meat program’ is shameful for it implies government support for the enforcement of sharia over us as halal meat is pushed, often unlabelled, onto non-Muslims; it implies support for the sadistic halal killing where animals aren’t stunned or where transient ‘reversible’ electrical stunning is used; it implies support for a highly discriminatory Muslim only workforce; it implies support for meat dedicated to allah to be pushed onto non-Muslims; it implies support for the religious food tax non-Muslims are inadvertently paying to Islam.
Would our government be happy to engage in a Christian or Hindu etc discriminatory meat industry where others paid a religious tax on the meat they were sold? These groups do not have the equivalent of sharia law to enforce over others.
It is state and federal governments that allow animals to be killed according to sharia and against our laws and the spirit of our laws.
We will be told that the halal industry is great and makes us lots of money. Well it certainly makes certain groups lots of money but it does nothing for the ordinary Auzzie who has sharia law and halal meat dedicated to allah forced onto them and who pays more for this religious imposition. Those companies involved in this sick slaughter either without stunning or with ‘reversible’ stunning could develop a far more moral and profitable business using humane killing practices without any religious aspect. Sky Blue has done so! (Dickson 2009).
And what has happened to our farmers? My husband is off a wheat/sheep farm and the family over generations were involved in sheep and beef but they never treated animals cruelly and are disgusted at the halal industry. They are nolonger farmers so who now owns our farms –is it remote corporations with local ‘managers’ who care nothing about the animals, only about the money? Would farmers choose to supply animals to HUMANE abattoirs with irreversible stunning –apparently yes (Dickson 2009)
The halal industry is fragile as Muslims become stronger and demand no stunning . Will our industries trapped into this market survive? Will only unstunned animals be slaughtered turning Australia into a barbaric nation which practices animal cruelty. The US allows religious killing without stunning and could be a big competitor, so could some other countries.
Those of us who care about animal welfare need to work in Australia and with groups overseas to STOP ALL HALAL KILLING in the non-Muslim world. If Muslims want halal meat, let them import it from an Islamic country or move to an Islamic country but we should have NO part in it!
We are supposed to be ashamed of selling our coal etc but at least that provides useable energy and CO2 for plants to grow, but-
**halal meat is just meat where you pay a Muslim each time you buy it! It is much, much worse than ordinary meat due to the animal cruelty, the high levels of stress hormones, the food tax to Islam, the dedication to allah and the discriminatory work practices. There is NO advantage in it being halal except to Muslims!
**There is a great opportunity for an abattoir to produce irrevesibly stunned, humanely killed NON HALAL meat for sale to Australians and for butchers to advertise that they only sell HUMANELY killed meat where animals are irreversibly stunned.
Export markets could grow as Australia promotes itself as the world’s most HUMANE and hygienic supplier of meat in a world where the majority, given the choice, would rather eat humanely killed meat NOT dedicated to allah and where royalties are NOT paid to Islamic groups!
PS: Eat Pork and avoid the halal rort. Sadly the majority of chicken is halal, dedicated to allah, food tax to Islam.
