TONY Abbott is “comfortable” Australian companies are paying Islamic groups for halal certification

We thought he was the lesser evil. Turns out he is just as evil. Or is he just clueless?

TONY Abbott is comfortable Australian companies are paying Islamic groups for halal certification, putting him at odds with two government MPs who want to curb the practice.


THE prime minister believes Australians want to see certified agricultural businesses thrive by being able to export produce to Muslim countries.

“If we want our exports to grow all the time, this is what we need to do and I think that’s what Australians want,” Mr Abbott told reporters in Hobart following a visit to a halal-certified meat supplier on Monday.That view isn’t shared by some of his fellow Liberals, including Senator Cory Bernardi who wants an parliamentary inquiry into what he claims is a “racket”.He wants to clarify whether funds from the certification process were being funnelled into extremist organisations as had been the case overseas, he said.Processors pay Islamic organisations to certify that foods are prepared according to Islamic law.The issue is becoming more important as Australia seeks to kick-start talks on a free trade deal with the Gulf states, as well as boost exports to Asia.Nationals MP George Christensen and independent senator Jacqui Lambie have also raised concerns, while a petition before parliament urges politicians to ban the practice.


Just a reminder where Bill Shorten and the Labor party stands:

 Labor stands shoulder to shoulder with Australia’s Islamic community and, now more than ever, we are committed to tolerance, social cohesion, mutual respect and multiculturalism.


More of that.

  1. The only people who are “comfortable” are those who have no idea of how absurdly broad-based the halal tax is. Clearly, the advice given to the PM parrots the line pushed by the very people who are reaping millions from this scam (laughing at anyone who believes them), that is, that it applies only to meat exports to Islamic countries to expand our markets. Sounds fair enough if you don’t know the outrageous extent of it and are not familiar with the doctrine of taqiyya.

  2. I Thought Tony Abbott Would make a difference, I Was Wrong. He’s Just another spineless Dhimmi Politician. Time To Stop Voting For The Two Major Parties.

  3. Tony Abbott has lost me, I filed him away with all the other cowardly politicians – he is as dhimmy as bloody Pope Francis who has not stopped bumkissing Islam since his first act was to snog the feet of a muslima. What is it with Catholics? (incidentally I identify myself as a “catholic agnostic”.
