(World Bulletin) The head of a Sydney-based halal certification body has launched legal action against an “Islam-critical” group that claims the industry is corrupt and promotes sharia law in Australia, local media reported Wednesday.
Mohamed El Mouelhy, chairman of the Halal Certification Authority, is suing the Q Society over two videos posted online, as well as halal campaigner Kirralie Smith.
“These are bigots and anti-Muslims and they don’t make any bones about it,” El Mouelhy told SBS News. “Kirralie Smith has maligned me personally in two videos that are on YouTube. read more
AM comment: Something stinks when an Islamic body takes money to halal certify cat food, hot cross buns, peaches, bacon, oranges, bread, chocolate, etc.
(AustraliaMatters) Something dawned on us today after hearing Alan Jones grill PM Abbott about the latest 2014 Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with China. The FTA allows Australian dairy farmers “tariff free” (aka tax free) access into China. Jones pointed out that many Australian dairy farms are being bought up by China.
Abbott’s as proud as punch promoting his great FTA works, when all that’s been done is the tax gate left wide open for Australian milk owned by Chinese communists to leave Australia TAX FREE and be used in China.
What a fricking scam!
The FTA isn’t just about dairy but we’ll stick with this example for now.
Why are so many of our dairy farmers selling up the farm? Obviously they can’t survive in the Australian market place as they are being paid stuff all by the large supermarkets.
(RT) Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev has signed a decree on the full ban for imports of beef, pork, poultry meat, fish, cheese, milk, vegetables and fruit from Australia, Canada, the EU, the US and Norway.
The ban will last a year, starting August 7. Read more
AM Comment: This is a response to sanctions we put on Russia. Five dollars says those like Alan Jones will try to spin this around. Where’s Australia’s sanctions on Ukraine for killing their own citizens? What a fricking joke! Old Aussie farmer isn’t laughing though. Good work Alan Jones and the Abbott clan.
(AustraliaMatters) We’re not the hottest Alan Jones supporters; the fellow that happily believes the small Japanese live stock industry should lose out to our Australian live stock industry — while out the other side of his mouth, angrily argues against foreign imports pushing Australian citrus growers to the wall.
In-between Jones’s usual Rhodes Abbott love fest, his recent foreign ownership segment with CPI Strategic Rick Brown is well worth a listen.
