From the Slaughterhouse to Hamas

The issue of halal slaughter has been much in the news lately in Quebec. Quebecers have discovered that a lot of the meat sold in Quebec is halal, even though it may not be labeled as such. Just how much unmarked halal meat passes over supermarket checkout counters has become a topic of debate.

Then there is the question of where all the money goes. In order to have its meat certified halal, a slaughterhouse must pay a fee to an official certification outfit. All halal certification in Canada is controlled by the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC). The franchise is lucrative, and MAC rakes in a lot of cash, thanks to the halal racket.

It turns out that a large chunk of money makes its way through the zakat process into the pockets of Islamic terrorist organizations. In the following video, Marc Lebuis of Point de Bascule talks to Michael Coren about the results of his site’s investigation into the money trail from the halal slaughterhouses to Hamas.

Muslim Association of Canada: a contributor to Hamas fund collector controls halal certification in Quebec


Part 1 — Presentation and General Conclusions

In her March 13 report broadcast on Dumont le midi TV show, journalist Caroline Lacroix revealed that Olymel pays thousands of dollars to the “Association des viandes halal that is controlled by Abou-Baker-Assedique mosque” located at 371 Jean-Talon E. in Montreal for the halal certification of its chickens.

During his March 23 TV show that took place after the halal issue was addressed at the Quebec National Assembly, Mario Dumont highlighted that all political parties in Quebec City had been very careful not to bring up the financial aspect of the issue:

Mario Dumont — video 04:19: Nobody discussed the money issue. What does it fund? Where does the money go? Are we financing mosques without knowing it? It seems that this issue is even more taboo. Everybody is very careful not to talk about it.

Point de Bascule spent the last few days at finding an answer to Mario Dumont’s legitimate question. Who is pulling the strings behind this Aboubakerseddik Mosque on Jean-Talon Street that receives commissions from companies like Olymel, that get their chickens halal certified, as we have learned on March 13?

Here are the main conclusions that we can draw at this time:

1. The mosque is part of a cultural centre. The centre also acts as an organization providing halal certification under a different name. We are dealing with one enterprise involved in two activities: management of recreation and culture and meat inspection.
2. The certification agency is controlled by the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), the main Muslim Brotherhood organization in Canada. MAC owns the building where the certification agency and the cultural centre are based and the administrators of the certification agency are former MAC directors or they have publicly endorsed MAC’s positions in the past.
3. For the last ten years, MAC has been an important contributor to IRFAN-Canada, the Hamas fund collector in the country. Hamas is involved in a program aiming not only at the elimination of the state of Israel but also at the destruction of Western civilization. In a speech given on October 2011, its leader Mahmoud Al-Zahhar stated that “This (Western) civilization will not be able to withstand the great and glorious Islam.” The Canada Revenue Agency revoked IRFAN-Canada’s charity status in April 2011 after having concluded that it financed the terrorist organization Hamas.
4. MAC’s halal program is part of a global Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy. In 2010 in Islamabad, a leader of the Islamist organization, the mufti of Bosnia, Mustafa Ceric, urged Muslims “to conquer the world through Halal movement.”

Before having been able to analyse all legal implications related to the halal issue, Point de Bascule would like to make two proposals as a starter:

1. All products for which commissions are being paid to imams for halal certification should be properly identified.
2. No public money should be spent to buy products that will be served in schools, in daycare centres, in military bases, in prisons and in other public institutions if these products have been certified by imams who belong to organizations that received money or gave money to terrorist organizations’ fund collectors or if they are involved in a project aiming at destroying Western civilization from within.

It would be beneficial that private certification agencies be set up to guaranty that the products that they approve come from animals who have been desensitized before being slaughtered and that no profit coming from the sale of their certified products will go to the financing of Islamic jihad…

While I certainly see the problems with halal and the mandatory Islamic "charity" donation which may go to terror organizations, I also remember that whenever the halal subject comes up, we also begin to hear about the problems with Jewish kosher slaughter. Kosher and halal are NOT the same. For one thing, in Jewish law, there is a major consideration that the animal being slaughtered should be killed as quickly as possible to minimize pain. Many supposed animal rights groups want to ban kosher slaughter on grounds that no preliminary stunning takes place. This argument has been going on for some time, so I won't discuss the ins and outs here. What I really object to is the routine acceptance of halal meats, especially in public institutions, without the public being aware of it. I, for one, would object quite strongly to eating meat with the name of the Muslim god being invoked over it, as required by Islamic law. Oddly enough, before Jew-hatred became so extreme, some Muslims used to buy kosher meat as acceptably halal.

1. Where is the SPCA on this in any affected country? Where are the animal rightists?

2. Considering the massive flow of impurities in the animal;s body during its protracted death agonies, where is the Department of Health or its equivalent?
