NZ: Muslims call for transfer of religious holidays

Islamic replacement theology at work:

Ashura, Eid al Adha: slaughter-orgies to replace Christmas, Easter, Passover and Chanukah?

H/T Mullah/Radio NZ

Muslims in New Zealand are to petition the Government to have Christmas and Easter public holidays transferred to days on which they celebrate their own religious festivals.

The Federation of Islamic Associations plans to discuss religious holidays as part of the Government’s constitutional review.

Association president Anwar Ghani says at present, Muslims have to take up to four days’ annual leave to celebrate religious holidays such as Eid-al-Fitr which marks the end of the month of Ramadan.

“It would be really a lot nicer if we had the provision to substitute one or two days of the other holidays so that we can, without sacrificing the annual leave, enjoy the festivities and feel that we have been included in the provisions of leave.”

Sharia Applied

Rumor causes Muslim teenager to “punish” his younger sister with a belt  for flirting with boys at school

As the oldest male in the family, he had a duty to discipline her. Court heard the teen, who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, became angry over rumours about his sister and on Sept. 27, 2008, he struck her seven to eight times on the right arm and leg with his belt.

But not to worry, he will not get a conviction because he “pleaded guilty to assault with a weapon and says he wants to become a police officer.” (National Post) Update below the fold>>>

New Zealand court  rules by sharia: formally recognizes the legal status of Paki  guardianship:

In a landmark ruling the High Court has formally recognised Pakistan’s Islamic law, and allowed an 18-month-old boy to come to New Zealand.  The judgment by Justice Christopher Allan in the case of “MH” – as the child is now known – is the first by a New Zealand court to formally recognise the legal status of Pakistani guardianship.

Two days after he was born in Karachi, MH’s birth parents gave him to their close friends, Pakistan-born New Zealand citizens Iqbal Sharif and Sara Sami.  The Pakistan Family Court has issued a certificate of guardianship, formally recognising the donation.

Immigration New Zealand refused MH a visa, saying that what had occurred in Pakistan was not adoption as it was understood in New Zealand law. (No adoption in Islam since Muhammad screwed the wife of his adopted son)

But Pakistan does not recognise adoption.

In a closely argued ruling, Justice Allan considered Islamic law (Sharia) and ruled in favour of the adopted parents. (Hundreds, if not thousands more will follow/ed) (National)

Oklahoma Says No to Sharia

As Americans learn more about Islam, the aspect they find most objectionable is not its theology (such as whether Allah is God or not) nor its symbolism (such as an Islamic cultural center in lower Manhattan) but its law code, called the Sharia. Rightly, they say no to a code that privileges Muslims over non-Muslims, men over women, and contains many elements inimical to modern life. (More from Daniel Pipes)

My sharia amore:

Makram M., a Swedish national of Tunisian origin, became the first “Swedish” suicide bomber in Iraq

The man, of Tunisian background, lived in Sweden and was married to a Swedish woman.

His Proud Wife & Mother of his Children sez: “What he has done is right. I’m proud of him.”

An Extremist Sharia Makeover

For the past month-and-a-half, the Islamic Society of Milwaukee (ISM) has been sponsoring a program attempting to whitewash the effect that Sharia law, if implemented, would have on American society. Teaching the courses was Zulfiqar Ali Shah, an individual tied to various radical Muslim groups, including a Hamas charity. Does the ISM really believe that a known extremist can put a good face on Sharia, and what does this say about those who advocate for Sharia?  (Joe Kaufman)

NZ Under Pressure to Import More Halal Butchers

Perhaps revenge for this: that’s how it started, anyhow:

NZ: Ex-slaughterman’s action threatens meat industry

Jordanian princess to KRudd: “killing without stunning is not necessary under Islamic principles,”


Blackmail: Halal Butcher Ahmed doesn’t want animals stunned before cutting their throats, because that’s not “proper” halal. Only if Muslims do it “correctly”, the cruel practice is acceptable. If its not done ‘correctly’ that means NZ could lose a great deal of its meat exports. Animal cruelty and hygiene doesn’t come into play…. In Europe, the industry has a long history of scandals….

At that time I was asking how much will NZ bend over to please the Mohammedans?

Then came this from the Tundra Tabloids:

NEW ZEALAND: MEAT COMPANY’S REJECTION OF HALAL BUTCHERS CAUSES INCREASE IN INCOME…

Move from halal brings manna for meat firm

And here the latest, H/T Counter Jihad:

“You won’t get our business if you don’t submit to Islam”

Indonesia’s highest authority on Islamic affairs, the Council of Ulema (MUI), has signalled a hard line on imports from New Zealand and other Western nations.

It plans to insist that all imported food labelled as halal is sold only if it has the council’s own halal certification.

Which means: import Muslims and let them control it. Let them settle in what they perceive to be behind enemy lines,  build mosques and madrassas for them and establish Islam….

Islam has religious rules for halal food, including specific requirements for how animals should be slaughtered.

A nice little scam:

MUI’s Food, Drugs and Cosmetic Assessment Institute is the sole issuer of halal certificates for such goods.

Ma’ruf Amin, one of the chairmen of the council, said many products imported from New Zealand – and other Western countries such as the United States and Australia – carried halal labels but the MUI did not always trust their certification standards.

Mr Ma’ruf told the Jakarta Globe the move was intended “to make sure that all products labelled halal are truly halal”.

The announcement is in line with signals Indonesia gave last year that it would no longer recognise the two existing certification authorities in New Zealand, Islamic Meat Management and the Federation of Islamic Associations.

Trade Minister Tim Groser said at the time that the Indonesian plan to ban $100 million of New Zealand beef imports – and potentially $450 million worth of dairy exports – from 2010 required a long-term solution.

Since then, John Key’s Government has announced that the Food Safety Authority will provide oversight for organisations which certify halal meat to “standardise” halal certification.

The oversight may yet be extended to dairy products.

Mid-East princess in plea to Rudd on halal slaughter

LORNA EDWARDS/The Land

Apologies for posting this late, the article is from 02 Nov, 2009 but it seems that not everyone is keen on this halal racket:

THE King of Jordan’s sister has appealed to the Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, to stop the ritual slaughter of conscious animals for halal meat in Australia, saying it was not necessary under Islamic principles.

Princess Alia bint al-Hussein of Jordan, who is the sister of King Abdullah II of Jordan, said she had written to Mr Rudd saying that any lowering of animal welfare standards in Australia for religious reasons would be a blow to the country’s reputation and undermine progress in the Middle East.

“Contrary to some claims, killing without stunning is not necessary under Islamic principles,” she said.

NZ: Ex-slaughterman's action threatens meat industry

Creeping Sharia: Halal butcher wants to see more blood!

Looks like blackmail, and  Ahmed might just about succeed in scaring the kuffars into submission. Halal slaughter stipulates an animal must be killed by one fast cut to the neck so the animal bleeds to death. It must face Mecca, and the slaughterman must evoke the name of God by saying “Bismallah Allahu Akbar”.  If its not done ‘correctly’ that means NZ could lose a great deal of its meat exports. What does it take to pacify a militant Muslim?

* Newsflash: Pakistan raids one terrorist camp to keep up appearances….

“Not enough blood” `Troublemaker’: former halal slaughterman Ahmed Ghanem is critical of New Zealand killing practices.

A Muslim slaughterman’s attempts to discredit the New Zealand meat industry have drawn the attention of the country’s spy service.

Meat Industry Association members said they were contacted by the Security Intelligence Service (SIS) this week after Ahmed Ghanem, an Egyptian-born halal slaughterman now living in Christchurch, published articles on a British website decrying New Zealand slaughter methods as inhumane and contrary to Islamic practice.

Ghanem said he and other anti-stunning activists in the Muslim world had successfully sought a fatwa, or religious ruling, from senior clerics condemning the practice.

Meat industry figures in New Zealand have called Ghanem a “troublemaker”.
