‘Boycott Halal in Australia’ is certainly getting some publicity

Even a cursory glance at the ‘Boycott Halal in Australia‘ Facebook site along with a random reading of major newspapers across Australia indicate that this popular movement has gained some traction in recent months.

In essence, this Halal issue centres on paying a fee to have on your product a clear logo or words to the effect that this item has been given the all-go for Muslims to purchase it and eat it. But it doesn’t start and end there, even the transport that brings that product to the market place is required to have Halal certification.

If such a trucking company refuses to ‘cough up’ the money to get Halal certification, then any product with Halal certification is not permitted to be transported by that company.
The chain of Halal certification has a very long arm.

Check out what’s involved –
getting from the farm
food preparation

‘Boycott Halal in Australia’ identifies a number of concerns relating to Australian commercial enterprisers signing up Halal certification.

Is it a restriction on fair trade to those who chose not to pay-up to get Halal certification? Does this pose an economic burden upon those those that do not pay-up? Two good questions.

This leads directly to the nature of Halal certification. This is not a Government requirement. This is, for want of a word, a private commercial enterprise and a very handsome money making exercise. According to the reports on the Facebook page (above), some companies are forking out $29,000 a month.

Medium sized abattoirs charged $27,000 a month – that works out to $324,000 per annum – not bad for a scamming rort eh!

Another example: A meat processing company said it paid more that $2.4 million for halal certification.

Another issue is that this whole Halal certification scenario is of great concern to many non-Muslims. Australia has just over 2% of its entire population Muslim. The rest of us are being force-fed product with Halal certification whether we like it or not. Moreover this kind of Halal certification is only quite new, a few years. What has changed?

As a result, this Halal certification ‘business enterprise’ has expanded exponentially, with a hanging out of a shingle (as it were) as Halal certifiers with no Government control of the process. The Facebook site illustrates this – with example after example.

I have had to minimise this image so much to get it on the page that you won’t be able to see the signs.. there are so many – too many Self-appointed halal authorities!

Furthermore, the Facebook page gives examples where food preparation inspections are not even part of these cowboy Halal certification business groups.
A phone call, pay up, Halal certificate issued.

The money

There are numerous questions associated as to where the money ends up. The Facebook site gives chapter and verse from those involved in the Halal certification. One question relates to ISIS as according to the Facebook page, is somewhere in the mix.

But it is more than this. It is an inexpensive way to fund the various aspects of Islam in Australia and across the globe. The money involved is considerable. Some have referred to it as ‘GST across the world’ and this Halal certification focuses on rich western nations.

In effect, Australians are paying up. The question posed by the Facebook page is that these people have a freedom to get monies without the sorts of Government restrictions that are seemingly placed upon every other enterprise. Even Charities in Australia have to conform and meet a host of regularity requirements.

The Facebook page says many of Australia’s companies are complicit and they are paying this Halal certification without so much as a whimper, until now. Hence the ‘Boycott Halal in Australia’ movement which has gained such publicity that some companies have now dropped their Halal certification.

Why isn’t it reversed?

If it is so important why isn’t it reversed, and the Muslim community itself pays the Government to have their Halal certification placed on specific approved food products.
That makes a great deal of common sense to me.

Certainly Dick Smith products belong to a growing number of enterprisers who refuse to have Halal certification. They are being praised across the nation.

The Facebook page identify both groups – those that have chosen to ignore the Halal certification and those that have it. South Coast Dairies are not Halal certified and have no intention of doing so.

Again from the Facebook site – the Subway Vege Pattie is Halal certified and there is a call to boycott it. Chobani Yogurt likewise. Cadbury chocolate also (there has been a cry recently that Cadbury reduced their chocolate bar size – I wonder whether it’s to pay for their Halal certification?). Kellogg’s breakfast cereals have Halal certification. Even ingredients are checked and therefore require Halal certificate.

Words given to explain all this: insidious, alarming …. The Facebook page says even Sanitarium is Halal certified (associated with the Seventh Day Adventists). Good grief that’s Weet-bix! Halal certifiers have their fingers on this too.

We have several examples of SANITARIUM’S Halal Certificates covering every product they sell.

Maleny Dairies have stated that Halal Certification is not part of their business model. They will not be spending money on such an item and the positive responses have been phenomenal.

The Facebook site ‘Boycott Halal in Australia’ is quite an eye-opener. Take a read but sit down first ….

The call is to change your shopping habits.

You just might find that your shopping budget is a lot better off. Certainly, you won’t be paying what the Facebook page refers to as this (in effect) additional GST.

Halal Funds Terrorists: ZAKAT

If You Buy Halal,  You Are Indirectly Financing Terrorism Via Zakat

It is unlikely that anyone else will inform you about this…

Islamic law requires a 2.5% tax called zakat which is imposed on income and accumulated wealth of all devout Muslims.
ie. the muslims that are involved in the halal industry- the imams, slaughtermen, workers, business & shop owners etc.

Halal certification is done on a fee for service basis, with the fees varying with the scope and scale of the services.
Certification is provided by Islamic organizations, and would not be halal if the required zakat was not paid on the fees.

What you may not know is that there are eight classes of zakat recipients, each of which gets a 1/8 share of the gross.
One of those classifications is fighters in Allah’s cause aka Mudihideen, aka terrorists.
When you purchase a product which is certified Halal, you are indirectly contributing to terrorism.

I quote from Reliance of the Traveller, the Shari’ah handbook of the majority Sunni sect of Islam.

h8.7: The Eight Categories of Recipients

It is obligatory to distribute one’s zakat among eight categories of recipients (O: meaning that zakat goes to none besides them), one-eighth of the zakat to each category. (n: In the Hanafi school, it is valid for the giver to distribute his zakat to all of the categories, some of them, or to confine himself to just one of them (al-Lubab fi sharh al-Kitab(y88), 1.155). )

h8.17: Those Fighting for Allah
The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster, but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration.
They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged.
Though nothing has been mentioned here of the expense involved in supporting such people’s families during this period, it seems clear that they should also be given it.

Over a billion people in the world follow the teaching of the Prophet Muhammad. His followers accept the validity of the prophethood of Muhammad and sincerely believe that his teachings are a divine message from Allah (God).

They believe that the message is embodied in the Holy Qur’an, and this Qur’an is the living word of Allah for ALL of humanity.

Islamic Charity Organizations: Alms & Terrorism

As-Sadaqât (here it means Zakât) are only for the Fuqarâ’ (poor), and Al-Masâkin (the poor) and those employed to collect (the funds); and for to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islâm); and to free the captives; and for those in debt; and for Allâh’s Cause (i.e. for Mujâhidûn – those fighting in the holy wars), and for the wayfarer (a traveller who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allâh. And Allâh is All-Knower, All-Wise. Al-Tawba 9:60

 

إِنَّمَا الصَّدَقَاتُ لِلْفُقَرَاء وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَالْعَامِلِينَ عَلَيْهَا وَالْمُؤَلَّفَةِ قُلُوبُهُمْ وَفِي الرِّقَابِ وَالْغَارِمِينَ وَفِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ فَرِيضَةً مِّنَ اللّهِ وَاللّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ‭. سورة التوبة ٩:٦٠

http://quran.com/9

One of the five pillars of Islam is the requirement that every Muslims contribute to the Islamic charity (alms) tax or Zakat.

According to the Qur’an, the Zakat funds must be used for the following purposes.

 

  1. The Fuqara poor. They are the poor who do not beg for support.
  2. The Masakin. The destitute; They are the poor who beg for support.
  3. Amil’ Zakah.  Those who administer the collection and distribution of the Zakat funds.
  4. Mu’Allaf. Those who may be enticed to Islam as well as new converts who need financial support.
  5. Riqab.  Those in bondage; Those Muslim slaves who may have their freedom purchased.
  6. Fi sabi `Lillah. Those who are fighting in the Cause of Allah, e.g., the Mujahideen.
  7. Ibn as’Sabil. The wayfarer; Muslim travelers who need assistance while on a journey.
  8. Gharimun – ‘people burdened with debt’

One of the purposes of the Zakat tax is to support those struggles in the Cause of Allah (6.).  The Noble Qur’an states that Allah’s Cause entails supporting Mujahideen or those who are fighting in the battles and wars of Allah. So, it is no wonder that Islamic charitable organizations send funds to militant organizations who fight in the Cause of Allah. From the perspective of many non-Muslims, some of these militant organizations are terrorist organizations.

The hadith of al-Bukhari in its section on Zakat informs us that Khalid did not have to pay the Zakat because he kept his armor dedicated to the Cause of Allah.  Armor is used for battle and not for charitable purposes as normally understood by non-Muslims.

 

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) ordered (a person) to collect Zakat, and that person returned and told him that Ibn Jamil, Khalid bin Al-Walid, and Abbas bin ‘Abdul Muttalib had refused to give Zakat.” The Prophet said, “What made Ibn Jamll refuse to give Zakat though he was a poor man, and was made wealthy by Allah and His Apostle? But you are unfair in asking Zakat from Khalid as he is keeping his armor for Allah’s Cause (for Jihad). As for Abbas bin ‘Abdul Muttalib, he is the uncle of Allah’s Apostle (p.b.u.h) and Zakat is compulsory on him and he should pay it double.” Sahih Al-Bukhari, Obligatory Charity Tax (Zakat), Volume 2, Book 24, Number 547

 

Those Islamic Terrorist organisations fall under “Fi sabi `Lillah” or those ‘in the path of God’

Fi Sabi-Lillah
This means ‘in the path of God’ and pertains to anyone struggling for a righteous cause, including but not limited to the expenditure towards the promotion of Islam and for all charitable purposes. This also includes Jihad. Those struggling for Allah.

 

فاي سابي-لله
وهذا يعني، في سبيل الله “وتنتمي إلى أي شخص يناضل من أجل قضية الصالحين، بما في ذلك ولكن لا يقتصر على الإنفاق من أجل تعزيز الإسلام، وبالنسبة لجميع الأغراض الخيرية. وهذا يشمل أيضا الجهاد. أولئك الذين يكافحون في سبيل الله.

 

Towards the end of the same article…
In conclusion, the Qur’an indicates that a portion of the Zakat, Islamic charity, should be used for militant Islamic objectives. An article in the New York Times states,

Terrorist groups rely on contributions from wealthy religious conservatives in the Persian Gulf as well as from money diverted from the zakat — the mosque collection plate — on several continents. Money is often funneled through reputable charities into the hands of operatives. For instance, the World Trade Center bombing was financed through money coming from the Alkifah Refugee Center in Brooklyn. And the system of funneling money through charities has improved greatly since then.
by Daniel Benjamin and Steven Simon, The New Face of Terrorism, New York Times, January 4, 2000.

Zakat – The 8 Recipients

http://www.emel.com/article?id=61&a_id=1411&fb_source=message

FURTHER PROOF that Zakat Funds Terrorism:
The 9/11 Commission found that Al Qaeda was funded “almost entirely” by zakat and sadaqa (donations beyond the 2½ zakat rate).

Quote from the 9/11 Commission Report:

Bin Laden did not fund al Qaeda through a personal fortune and a network of businesses in Sudan. Instead, al Qaeda relied primarily on a fund-raising network developed over time.
The CIA now estimates that it cost al Qaeda about $30 million per year to sustain its activities before 9/11 and that this money was raised almost entirely through donations.

FURTHER PROOF:

“Conquer the world through Halal movement”
In 2010, the mufti of Bosnia-Herzegovina Mustafa Ceric, a Muslim Brotherhood leader in Europe, has evoked this project of Islamic conquest in a speech given in Islamabad (Pakistan) at the Global Halal Congress – Reported by the Daily Mail (Islamabad) and archived by GMBDR

In her March 13 report broadcast on Dumont le midi TV show, journalist Caroline Lacroix revealed that Olymel pays thousands of dollars to the…

“Association des viandes halal that is controlled by Abou-Baker-Assedique mosque” located at 371 Jean-Talon E. in Montreal for the halal certification of its chickens.

Where does all this money collected for halal inspections, halal monitoring and halal certification fees… Where does it all go???

La question maintenant : ou va l’argent de la certification halal?

The Muslim Brotherhood nets Halal Tax Revenues

 

Halal -> Sharia Law -> Islamic Rule

Halal -> Sharia Law -> Islamic Rule

Stages of halal – Boycott all 3:

1. Company becomes halal compliant, seeks to appease muslims.
(Boycott)

2. Company/product/service becomes halal certified.
(Very serious boycott)

3. Mark is displayed on Product/service.
(Avoid at ALL Cost!)
