“Home grown” Islamophobes

This is one really disgusting case of anti- Islam far right propaganda that is ill informed and bundles every Muslim into an IS basket. This guy needs to be stopped. I’ve put his photo on the far right of my page because that’s exactly where he sits.

I first heard about this when a ‘campaign’ to prevent the labelling of food with the certified “Halal” logo was successful in having the logo removed from the companies product. Apparently they had received ” so many tweets and e-mails” asking them to do this they weighed up their potential financial losses through

a) failing to secure an Emirate Airline inflight food contract

b) Loss of sales via a ‘home based’ product boycott,

They company the small South Australian based ‘Fleurieu Milk and Yoghurt’ company  bowed to pressure. The campaign has resulted in a “number of businesses” speaking out about on-line abuse over halal products and threats have been investigated by police related to the Byron Bay Cookie Co. over its halal certified biscuits.

I have cut down my blogposts recently in order to complete a selection of stories I have been writing but cannot put this one off! My initial information came through a small business support site email, SmartCompany.com,au

A writer from the site, Kirsten Robb,  provided a further posting today from SmartCompany saving me some trouble researching this further. The person who told Ms Robb his group  is “indirectly responsible for the recent spate of social media campaigns against ant halal certified Australian companies” is CEO of “the Queensland-based anti Islam lobby group- Restore Australia”.

Without finishing her article I did a quick search, Mike Holt CEO Restore Australia: and found this………………….

Before you click I advise turning your volume down as you will leap from your seat from the sound of bad taste country renditions sung by Mr Holt blaring from your speakers! He’s “been travelling and wandering, searching all these years and (he’s) only just figured out why you cried them tears…..”

Some clicked links on the site and I discovered another site called http://islam4infidels.com Restore Australia is “the public face” of the Foundation for National Renewal, a not-for-profit registered organization with about 100 members. Lets hope it stays that way.  I also discovered more fear mongering anti Islamic propaganda like the Team Australia v Team Terror comparison, “Proof” that Halal registration funds Muslims “The money generated by this fee (tax, for that is what it really is)….is helping fund the terrorism islam is waging against our civilization”. Mosque busting, a new draft constitution download here and…… why do I waste my time?

On the anti halal certification front

..we need to understand that halal certification has become a many tentacled octopus, reaching into virtually every area of our lives. Farmers are being forced to pay a halal certification fee for the grass the animals eat. Then a fee for the animals to be transported in halal certified vehicles. In many cases, even the drivers must be muslims now, as they are the only ones who are trusted by muslims to maintain the halal conditions. Slaughter houses pay. Packaging companies pay. Food processors pay. And finally, WE pay……

They then link you to this site for ‘Proof’ http://www.frontpagemag.com/2013/joe-kaufman/can-buying-food-contribute-to-terrorism/  Thanks Mr Kaufman for your helpful US Zionist propaganda insights and glad you were beaten at the recent US midterm election in Florida.

By the way Holt was also a One Nation Qld candidate only has 107 likes at last count, admitted that’s more than I have for this blog but I’m not running a religiously intolerant campaign that spuriously changed a Small food companies marketing strategy.

He provides an Halal Certification Presentation…..Mosque busting support and if you want to leave Islam without fear of recrimination his arms are wide open….Perhaps you could get him to come along and talk at your next Barbie!
