The craven halal-paying companies are striking back. Australians who oppose halal are prejudiced, ignorant, misinformed, extremists and inspired by hate, they say.
The Dairy Farmers Association talks of “irrational bullying campaigns” and urges members to go ahead and pay the halal levy.
So does South Australia’s Investment and Trade Minister, Martin Hamilton-Smith. He urged local exporters to “keep working” with the multi-million-dollar Middle Eastern market. “I encourage South Australian exporters to put enterprise and job opportunities ahead of the extreme views of a minority… prejudice has no place in Australia.”
And as for the cloth-head halal supporter, Darren Chester MP of the Nationals, he is more than a supporter of it, he is an apologist for it. In his own words, “The decision by a food company to meet halal requirements is a voluntary decision.” What? all these Australian companies suddenly voluntarily agreed to pay a religious tax? Chester is either pig-ignorant or is deliberately misinforming those who write to him.
So are Australians prejudiced, ignorant, misinformed, hate-inspired extremists?
Let’s start with the Jizya.
Muhammad very clearly established that people of other religions have to pay a tax – the jizya – to Muslims as a reminder of their inferior status.
It is specifically laid down in the Muslim Holy Book : “Fight those who believe not in Allah… until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”Qur’an (9:29)
This is not some out-of-date old notion from the 8th century. The jizya is commanded by Allah himself. It is an obligation on all Muslims. But it is an obligation which actually coins money for them and as such one which has been enthusiastically endorsed by them.
The extortion has been followed through the centuries and was a part of the brutal Ottoman rule over Christians, Jews and others. The Serbs of Europe often had to hand over their children to satisfy the collector of the jizya. The children were converted to Islam and trained in jihad as warriors (Janisssaries). This was the Devşirme system.
In India, well into the 17th century, Muslim jizya collectors would even take the wives and children of impoverished Hindus and sell them into slavery for the jizya requirement.
This is why Islamic purists such as Hamas and the Taliban wish to reinstate the jizya.
The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt have it as part of their current policy that Christians must pay a jizya and an Egyptian cleric on al-Hafaz TV said in 2013 that America that Muslims should demand more money as jizya from the Americans so that, in his words, “we can leave them alone.”
The notorious British Muslim preacher, Anjem Choudary, points out that “the normal situation is for [Muslims] to take money from the kuffar”(kuffars are non-muslims and is a term of contempt.) This cookie, by the way has been associated with around 20% of all convicted terrorism cases in the UK over the past 10 years, says he wants a passport to join ISIS, according to The Times.
The first thing ISIS does right now is impose jizya. The rounding up of women and selling them in the markets is one way how they collect the jizya. It is sanctioned by the ISIS Mullahs. Hamas has the same idea.
So the obligation is current, and it is no grand leap to see the halal levy as one way the jizya is paid. Under a masquerade of the thinnest kind a certifier decides that no pig fat was used anywhere in the production. They even certify water!
Muslims make no bones about it. Halal certification is a gold mine. They use this very phrase – a gold mine – in the Indonesian Jakarta Post. [Click on this link for a detailed look at Muslim enforcement of halal]
Now, it really does not matter how the money collected is disbursed – the very fact that it is collected at all is Australian’s acceptance of an inferior status to Muslims. This is why it is collected – to make Australians feel subdued At present, in Australia, it supposedly goes to charity.
Let’s assume it does.
What are the objects of Muslim charity? Well, laid down as top of the list of charitable objects is building mosques. It is called Waqf.
Is that clear enough?
The money that Australian companies pays to Muslims as halal certification is used for the building of mosques.
And on the list of charitable objects is the support of jihad warriors.
Nowhere on the list is any non-Muslim objective, not one cent goes to the Royal Blind Society or the RSPCA or Vinnies. It is raised from Australian citizens to go to Muslim-only causes.
And in spite of all the poppycock talked about inspection by government authorities – there is none.
No Australian with an ounce of pride would pay the halal extortion.
But many Australian companies have no sense of national pride or honour; they are gutless appeasers of Islam following a buck. Literally they sell Australia’s soul for their profit.
And so too, do the ‘economic rationalists’ in Canberra.
* “During a roundtable discussion on U.S. and foreign aid to Egypt, an Islamic cleric, clearly of the Salafi bent—he had their trademark mustache-less-beard—insisted that the U.S. must be treated contemptuously, like a downtrodden dhimmi, or conquered infidel; that Egypt must make the U.S. conform to its own demands; and that, then, all the money the U.S. offers to Egypt in foreign aid can be taken as rightfully earned jizya.”
