Halal Foods and Creeping Sharia

Source: Halal Foods and Creeping Sharia – CultureWatch

Is the ready availability of halal food and halal products in the West just a harmless aspect of multiculturalism, or is it an indication of something much more sinister? That various groups in Australia and elsewhere might want to avail themselves of special and specific foods is one thing.

But if this is part of a larger attempt to make free and democratic nations sharia-compliant, then we may well need to sit up and take notice. The truth is, creeping sharia is well under way throughout the West, and halal foods are in fact a part of all this. I have already written about the matter, and encourage you to look at some of my earlier pieces on this: Concerns About Halal Foods

Halal Certification Follow The Money

Here in Australia it seems that Woolworths is getting further in bed with Islamic compliance. I have been following the creeping sharia at Woolworths for some time now. Back in 2014 I discussed how they were getting us all to celebrate Ramadan: billmuehlenberg.com/2014/07/02/ramadan-and-jihad/

Um, never mind that Ramadan happens to be the most blood-thirsty month in the Islamic calendar, with violent jihad escalating during this period. That has been the case for 1400 years now. See here for more detail on this: billmuehlenberg.com/2014/07/02/ramadan-and-jihad/

But now Woolies has its own halal sections at some of its supermarkets. As one news item reports: “Woolworths is getting ready to introduce its own range of halal products as it goes ahead with efforts to better target individual suburbs. The nation’s largest supermarket chain is developing a range of private-label chicken that adheres to Islamic rules of animal slaughter.”

Again, those wanting halal foods may well applaud all this. But if it is part of a bigger agenda – one that seeks to see all of the West come into submission to Islam – then we all should be concerned. Some experts have referred to this as a ‘modern day trojan horse’.

Indeed, that is the title of a 2009 volume by Sam Solomon and E Al Maqdisi. With the subtitle, “The Islamic Doctrine of Immigration,” the authors demonstrate – as I wrote earlier – how

Muslims in the West are going about establishing a political power base to work toward the eventual takeover of the host nation. The strategy, as detailed by the authors, is quite clear: set up a beachhead in a non-Muslim nation, consolidate your gains, push for a separate and distinct culture, and work for full rights in terms of separate law systems, finance systems, dietary systems, and so on.

Thankfully a brand-new booklet by Sam Solomon has just appeared on this issue of halal foods and how the West needs to take heed. The 25-page publication is entitled “Islamisation through halal products” and is well worth reading. The first three paragraphs in Solomon’s introduction nicely lay the foundation:

The aim of Islam is to create a supreme worldview, whereby all other laws come under Islamic law. Halal food markets, Islamic dress markets, Sharia-compliant finance and banking, Islamic education, Sharia courts, etc., are all part and parcel of a unified, multifaceted socio-political-religious process deployed to transform the existing society from a civil/liberal/secular/pluralistic society into an Islamic society. The envisioned Islamic society would be a society whereby Islam is supreme over all other worldviews, both secular and religious, and whereby the civil/liberal/secular law is subservient to Islamic law.

In general, Islamic Sharia as interpreted and implemented by the Muslim community has been claimed to have all the policy elements and methods (legal, political, religious, etc.) to carry out the ‘Islamisation’ of any society. So in essence, Islam has both the ‘will’ and the ‘way’ to carry out the mandates of universality, contained in the teachings of the Qur’an and the Sunnah, as claimed by the Islamic ideologues.

It is increasingly well known that according to Islam, the Sharia is a “divinely mandated” system of regulations, doctrines, and directives governing all aspects of a Muslim’s life, individually and corporately. Furthermore, these directives are also imposed on non-Muslims in all spheres of life within the context of Muslim rule, severely curtailing all non-Islamic religious worship at the root, with formidable and onerous restrictions. In so doing, it meticulously regulates all aspects of religious practices, beliefs, religious obligations, education, legal systems, economy, freedom of speech, and much more.

Solomon goes on to speak about the three-legged stool of the global Islamic economy: (1) Islamic banking and finance, (2) Halal food markets and (3) Islamic dress markets. As to the second, he says this in part:

One might reason that Muslims are appropriately exercising their rights to consume food as prescribed by their religion – surely if this were to be the only end of the story, there would be no issue. But what if the halal food certification process is an open-ended holistic method being used to incorporate, implement, impose, and hence legitimize across-the-board Islamic-compliant standards on Muslims and non-Muslims alike, thus accomplishing the Islamisation of all food and drug products under cover of solely meeting the needs of Muslim communities?

Writing in the context of the UK, he also looks at some legal implications:

Is halal-based Islamisation a violation of British law? Our main argument is that halal-based Islamisation is discriminatory and hence it is against the British Law. Halal principles emanate from the Islamic Jurisprudence which has as primary sources the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Being so, it is an imposition or enforcement of the Islamic Sharia. Hence halal and Islamisation are interchangeable terms and the final outcome is one and the same. Unfortunately, an average British observer or even a seasoned policy maker, are both unable to discover this gradual discrimination in the early Islamisation stages.

Solomon then looks at policy recommendations, including this:

The Muslim community with its plethora of organizations and councils is ‘promoting’ its Islamic objectives using Western marketing methods. Islamic finance is marketed on the basis of attracting investments from the rich Arabian Gulf countries (Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Emirates, Kuwait, etc.). Halal foods and drugs are marketed as opportunities to serve a large Muslim customer base. The same strategy is used for the Islamic dress market. In short, the British policy maker is presented with opportunities for economic and financial growth of the entire British economy. This explains the desire by the policy maker to make London the ‘Islamic Finance Centre’ of the world. Supermarkets would compete to attract the halal food customer base. Department stores would announce major programs for hijab dresses and would employ Muslim designers to create new hijab fashion lines.

As this process continues, the cherished foundations of liberal democracy would gradually fade away to be replaced by the various rigid forms of Islamic domination.

He closes with “Precautionary safety measures regarding halal foods”. He writes:

Based on the foregoing, it is clear that the global and coordinated local efforts to use halal foods and related items (water, drugs, canned foods, etc.) to impose the Islamic will on non-Muslims and to eliminate as much as possible the normal food and drug markets, must be considered seriously. The guiding policy principles are:

1. The normal food and drug market must be protected from the encroachments of the halal food and drug market. This needs to be applied to the entire value chain of raising animals, slaughtering them for food production, packaging, sales, promotions, e-commerce, etc.

2. The halal food and drug market must be separate and independent from the normal market in all of its aspects and value chains.

3. Government oversight of the halal food and drug market must take place to ensure the following:

a. All applicable health and safety measures are adhered to;

b. All slaughtering efforts must adhere to the rules of protecting the animals from undue cruelty;

c. All Halal Food Standards must be subjected to government oversight without the restrictions that those implementing the oversight be Muslims.

4. Muslim individuals who prefer halal foods and drugs must do so without requiring the non-Muslims to accommodate this preference, even if it is deemed by the Muslims as a religious obligation.

5. All added expenses and facilities for halal foods and drugs in public establishments (schools, restaurants, office buildings, etc.) must not be borne by the government or public establishments. The Muslim community will need to find solutions to accommodate the needs of Muslims at its own expense.

In the conclusion of Modern Day Trojan Horse the authors say this:

Islam is neither a religion nor a faith in a personal way, as defined and understood in the West. It is a whole encompassing political system, garbed in religious outfit, addressing every aspect of the life of its adherents.

So when Muslim immigrants refuse assimilation and despise integration, it is done as a political move expressed religiously. Hence it would be in the interest of the host society and its national security to examine all requests, from a socio-political angle. For every Islamic doctrine is a political dictate aiming to establish itself by undoing the existing systems to control, rule and dominate in every area.

Presumably Woolworths and other businesses are mainly just concerned about the bottom line here: making money. Fair enough. However a short-sighted lust for profit at all cost may well be short-lived. If this sort of uncritical capitulation to Islam is not checked, we may eventually find ourselves all forced to live in a world of stifling and strict Islamic uniformity.

If places like Woolworths are allowed to exist in such a sharia-compliant world, they might be the “Halal Food People” as the Australian has quipped, but they will NOT be able to enjoy any of those profits – at least as they once were used to doing.

    • We in Australia have been paying this scam tax since 1974…and we want our money back with interest…it is not only on meat…it is on any thing you pick at your local store unless its one of very few items that are not halal…plastic containers knives and forks…zip lock bags jam…honey you fukn name it…

  1. I’m fine with halal foods. Cuisine from muslim lands can be quite delicious–their food may be one of the best things about their culture from the outside.

    It’s when the muslims start saying supermarkets shouldn’t offer pork products or alcohol because it offends their religion when things become a problem.

    • Go to the link ‘halal certification, follow the money’. Hopefully that will change your mind. A portion of the money for the certification goes to the Muslim brotherhood – aka – terrorism.

    • How can you possibly be “FINE” with halal foods? Are you aware of the needless cruelty inflicted on animals that are slaughtered in the islamic tradition? Are you quite happy to eat food that has been prepared with the blessing of an islamic god? I am not! What gets me is that all of this is not necessary. It is a scam. To make any food halal, a muslim just has to bless it before using or eating. Instant halal. No cruel slaughter or forcing others to eat their blessed food. It is just another ploy to get us to pander to their ways and act like good little dumb dhimmis.

  2. F Halal, F Muslims, just looking at your women covered from head to toe offends me but you are still allowed in. Please stay in your country and make it what you want don’t come here and try to change our way of life! Taking the life of an animal needs to be as painless as possible and we should never adhere to sharia of any kind you want sharia we will give you a ticket to return

  3. I recently purchased lamb from Walmart, The brand is from “Superior Farms’ It touts being American in all respects but if you look carefully you will see the ‘halal certification logo’ This means that when you buy this halal product you are paying a tax,called the jizya, and these funds will be used to conquer and enslave you. I wrote a complaint to Superior and I have asked all my friends to forgo buying any of their products.
    What can we do? obviously walmart will not give a fhart for your concerns. I wonder if picking up a package of bacon and leaving it on those halal products might make a statement?

  4. i didn’t know better and i was served non halal fried chicken and i liked it.
    then the owner asked if it was good and I said yes, better than “the other kind” – like I said i didn’t know about halal.

    Then i went back and asked for “the other kind” and this muzzie looked very angry as if he was going to attack me. Back then I open carried w/o a round in the chamber. now i conceal carry with a round in the chamber. that muzzie was lucky.

  5. January 18: Two men were indicted for cruelty to animals, after they had slaughtered sheep according to halal slaughter [permitted Islamic method of animal slaughter] at a pizzeria in Falkenberg. Halal slaughter does not allow for stunning the animal, and is illegal in Sweden, so the men tried to sneak the two sheep into the restaurant. They were, however, observed by a witness. When the police arrived, the sheep were already dead and lying on the concrete floor in a pool of blood.
    It is ingrained in islam to kill animals with as much pain as possible, virtually skinning them alive.

    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides
    the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog,
    there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries,
    improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of
    commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet
    rule or live.
    A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of
    its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must
    belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a
    concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has
    ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Muslims may show splendid
    qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of
    those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from
    being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has
    already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step;
    and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the
    science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe
    might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
    Sir Winston Churchill; (Source: The River War, first edition, Vol. II
    The American-American

If sharia keeps spreading, you will not only be silenced by the media and big technology, you will be jailed - or worse. Speak while you can!
