Halal the rage in Australia – Hospitals, McDonald’s and at school BBQ’s

First the national treasure, Vegemite, went halal. Now hospitals, McDonald’s and even grade schools are submitting to demands to meet Islamic sharia law in Australia. The land down under is literally becoming the land down under…under sharia law. hat tip @NoShariaLaw

Halal food offered in hospital first

Southern Health has started serving a choice of halal meals for Muslim patients in all of its hospitals.

It makes Southern Health the only halal-accredited production facility in the Victorian public sector and the initiative has been approved by the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils.

She said the halal meals were prepared according to guidelines laid down by the Islamic Council.

Those guidelines state animals must be slaughtered according to Islamic law and pork and its by-products must not be used.

Kitchen implements must be thoroughly cleaned before preparing halal meals and all raw ingredients including vegetables and grain must be halal and kept separate from other foods.

Ms Jamison said the meals were prepared at the Kingston Centre, chilled or frozen, and then distributed to the network of hospitals.

Row over barbecue as primary school opts to offer halal sausages

What was supposed to be a welcome-back barbecue for students at Coburg West Primary School has turned into a debate over the Islamic halal method of preparing meat.

Members of the school’s Parents and Friends Association believed they were being inclusive when they ordered halal-only sausages for last month’s barbie.

But some parents thought it was political correctness gone mad to offer only halal meat.

Parent Diane Rees said yesterday that she was outraged when told by the PFA that “we have to buy halal because we have some Muslim children in the school”.

“I said to the principal, ‘I think you’re discriminating against the majority of the school and appeasing the minority by only serving halal,’ ” she said. “It’s not fair on my children that they can’t eat at the school.”

School principal David Kilmartin, who has been in the job for only a month, said halal-only barbecues were not school policy and the PFA had been told to provide a choice of meat in the future.

“I don’t think it was done with any malice. I’m assuming there would have been requests from Muslim families to have halal meat,” he said.

Of course not, there’s never any malice. But Aussie’s worried about animal cruelty rather than Islamic supremacy should know cutting throats while shouting Allah Akhbar is not just for halal eats. See this video to fully comprehend.

So what did the local Muslim group have to say?

“I think they are using the issue of some halal sausages at a barbecue, for God’s sake, to bring out their own xenophobic bigotry,” he said.

“It was very thoughtful of the parents and friends association to try to cater for Muslims. I think they (the critics) need to get real and get a life on this one.”

All class. No malice.

Wait, there’s more. Halal Maccas call for Fawkner: (hat tip australianislamistmonitor)

FAWKNER Muslims are lobbying for their local McDonald’s to become halal.

A Facebook page titled “Make Fawkner McDonalds’ halal!” was set up two weeks ago and already has 240 “friends”.

But the fast food giant told Leader it had no plans to meet the request.

McDonald’s in Roxburgh Park and Brunswick East are halal-certified.

Another being built in Preston is set to be added to the list.

But McDonald’s spokeswoman Bronwyn Stubbs said the Fawkner restaurant “will not be moving toward serving halal food”.

“Members of the Fawkner community who wish to visit a halal restaurant have a number of McDonald’s in close proximity to choose from.

  1. This has to stop, Muslims have no right to be in Australia, especially if they are not going to assimilate, this is the biggest insult to our forefathers, and to men and women who have fought and died for our country.

  2. Shut up dhimmi and do as you are told! Only those who are willing to fight for their beliefs maintain them. The Muslims use violence and intimidation to spread ISLAM while all you do is sit around and complain. Like you siad, your forefathers fought and dies for their liberty. What are you going to do? Sign a petition? The only man with the courage to fight the Muslims is on trial at the Hauge for “war crimes”.

  3. nojizyatax And what good is someone when he is on trial for war crimes ? I understand where your coming from but we can stop this peacefully.

  4. Ok, christianity came long way before islam. Christians do not have to eat any kind of specific food (like halal for muslims or kosher for jews).
    I can understand if people cry out under animal rights to avoid halal/kosher meat.
    But it does not make any difference to christians if the meat they eat is halal.

  5. They were here for 60 thousand years before Europeans settled, and in that time they did……….yeah thats right NOTHING. In just under two hundred years Australians have transformed this country into a nation. People complain about genocide. Turkey, Armenia look it up. It may not matter to you, it matters to me and to many others. The halal way of killing is barbaric and cruel, it is not wanted in Australia and animal cruelty is a crime but hey if your Islamic your above the law.

  6. please be aware, that the christian actually should eat halal/kosher way too. Please look at the real bible, don’t trust the priest that make that religion of love with that shallow human mind. we must know the path of religion, first the Taurat (taurat means sharia or law) came to the Jew, then bible (soften the law with love and peace) came to the Christian, and at last those all perfected in Islam (complete religion).

  8. Australia doesn’t belong to anyone, not the aboriginals, not the Christians, not the Muslims it belongs to its society as a collective meaning everyone so what if a few places or all places go halal my question is how does this affect me. It doesn’t so y spread bigotry and hate against Muslims let us work with each other and develop a stronger society. How do we benefit from and use our differences without destroying the differences ? These are the questions we should be asking instead of opposing muslims . I’m not Muslim, I’m a white British boy brought up in a very christian home

  9. Eat what you were given when you came to Australia or get out. It’s enough you took Christianity out of schools coz it “offends” you.

  10. As an Australian consumer I would like to make an informed choice about the purchases I make. I ask that you would clearly identify on your products which ones have been subject to halal certification. I do not wish to support any brand that pays an Islamic religious tax to have their product halal certified. Less than 2% of this population is Muslim and I do not want to fund special religious rituals or political campaigns to increase the presence of Sharia Law in Australia. Please respect consumers and give them/us the necessary information so we can make our own choices. Please, also consider carefully what you are funding when you pay halal certification fees. The Koran says food must be halal but certification is a modern day tax imposed on a majority of people who do not submit to the Islamic religion and Sharia law. Yours Sincerely,
    Ps ballisimal is adequate to make haram halal.no money needs to change hands for certification

  11. Halal is more than just meat.productsthat are naturally halal are being certified to fu d islamic interests at your expense. Please educate yourself on this practice.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
