Mohamed El Mouelhy says he is not like most other Muslims.
“Muslims are … 90 per cent are meek and mild. I am neither meek nor am I mild. And anybody who touches me with the finger, I touch them with the full hands. Those who touch me with the full hand, I touch them in the face. And I’m not a person who is backwards in coming forwards.” – end quote.

Grand Mufti Dr Mustafa Ceric: To Conquer the World through Halal Movement
Halal food by itself is not of concern. Nearly all food is naturally halal (permissible under Islamic sharia law) and observant Muslims can make food of unknown origin halal by pronouncing ‘bismillah’ over their meal. What is of concern is the recent invention of halal certification schemes. To fully understand how these schemes work, why we should object and what you and your family can do about them, please watch the following video produced in conjunction with HalalChoices.com.au.
Unlike the older and more complex Kashrut (Jewish dietary laws) designed to serve the small observant Jewish community, Halal certification schemes are widely imposed on non-Muslims. Certification schemes began in the 1980s and are funded by consumers through a multi-level system of one off and recurring fees, paid by suppliers to Islamic organisations.
It is in effect a hidden Islamic tax on goods and services.
The extent of this Islamic ‘tax’ becomes clear when we understand who contributes to these schemes:
- The four major dairy companies
- Over 75% of poultry suppliers
- Over 60% of abattoirs processing sheep
- More than 50% of abattoirs processing cattle
- Generalists like Simplot, Unilever, Nestle, Kraft and many more
The global market for halal-certified products and services is estimated to be worth more than USD2.3 trillion, expanding by 20% per year. These schemes are not limited to food alone, with products and services ranging from halal certified cosmetics to water, trucks, warehousing and sharia finance there is no limit to the schemes. Plans are in place to certify every step of the market from suppliers of animal feed, to food processing and eventually the transport to your supermarket and shopping bag.Companies who believe non-Muslims do not care, pass on the extra cost to consumers. Few products are labelled as certified halal, when in fact most meat and dairy produce bought in supermarkets, or when eating out, are now halal certified for a fee. There is no other religious group imposing such a broad, tax-like scheme on our supply chain.
We propose the following policies:
1. Apply The ‘User Pays’ Principle
2. Insist On Clear Labelling
3. End Workplace Discrimination
Watch our halal certification info video and share it with your family and connections.Order a copy of our “Getting Through” handbook and learn how to talk to non-Muslims about the disturbing nature of Islam.
Pick up a stack of our “Why Swallow This?” fliers at the next Q meeting and do letter boxing each week in your area.
Talk and write to your local state and federal MP and Senators. Ask them to consider our three policy proposals
Be mindful when shopping and ask for non-halal certified options. You are not a bad person if you do not want to support Islamic organisations with your shopping dollar.
