Exclusive: Kellogg´s, Sanitarium and Nestle quietly stop paying halal certification fees in Australia - after public concerns about the money funding Islamic activities Daily Mail [Australia], by Stephen Johnson
Two of Australia´s biggest breakfast cereal makers are no longer paying third-party companies to declare their products are fit for Muslims to eat. Kellogg´s and Sanitarium have declared there is no need to pay an Islamic business or charity to declare their products contain no pork or alcohol products. Nestle no longer has halal certification applied to its chocolate bars, including Kit Kat, unlike its rival Cadbury. However Nestle still pay halal fees for Milo, Magi noodles, Nescafe coffee, condensed milk and chilli sauces. Halal certification fees charged to food manufacturers fund Islamic schools, mosques and religious activities. Sanitarium, the
Comments: We stopped eating Campbell´s foods when they announced their halal practice years ago. We´re sliding back into the vegetarian diet we ate years ago. Animal´s gout and my diabetes tends to guide us that way again. Good thing I saved all those cookbooks from way back!
I knew about Cadbury and warned everyone here last Easter about which chocolate eggs were Halal and which weren´t. Imagine the PC idiocy of demanding that chocolate Easter eggs be Halal for Muslims! Cadbury has a list on their website which tells you which products are Halal.
I didn´t know about Kellogg´s but it makes perfect sense when you consider their leftist PC attitude here in the US. The Breitbart readers´ boycott has hurt them badly though they blame on anything else they can conjure up.

President Trump scolded a female reporter who asked him about his three tweet announcement this morning to ban transgender servicemembers. ´She´s very rude,´ Trump said, as he entertained more than 100 American Legion boys and Auxiliary girls at an afternoon White House Rose Garden event. Trump blindsided his Pentagon Wednesday morning when he announced the policy change, with the White House saying later that he had made the decision yesterday. At Wednesday´s press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said upon Trump´s decision, Secretary of Defense James Mattis was immediately informed, along with the rest of the president´s national security team.
A warehouse full of homemade explosives set to be used in terrror attacks by ISIS in northern Iraq has been destroyed in an RAF operation. In the past week, British air force pilots have also wiped out dozens of jihadists in Iraq and Syria, with sniper posts and terrorist positions targeted in strikes in Raqqa, the capital of ISIS´s ´caliphate´. The warehouse was struck after intelligence officers identified the bomb factory near Hawijah in the Kirkuk province of Iraq last Wednesday. The RAF has said that ´large quantities´ of explosives were being stored by the jihadist group, which earlier this month lost
A former member of an IRA splinter group went on trial Wednesday in Germany, 21 years after he allegedly tried to hit a British base there with mortar shells. The Belfast-born man, 48, identified by Irish media as James Corry, was arrested in December at Frankfurt Airport after his extradition by Irish authorities. He is accused of carrying out the attack in 1996 and was placed on the international wanted list in 2004 by the German authorities. In spite of this, it has taken 13 years for Corry to finally be put on trial, drawing widespread criticism for the delay.
YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO — This town was on fire. By 1 in the afternoon on Tuesday every main thoroughfare in downtown Youngstown was filled with happy people heading towards the Covelli Centre. Folks dressed in red, white and blue crisscrossed the main grids as vendors sold “Make America Great Again” ball caps, American flags and bottles of water. Thousands had filled the gravel parking lot to wait until the doors opened at 4, license plates revealing they had traveled as far as Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania and West Virginia to see the president speak directly to them in this Rust Belt city.
New petrol and diesel cars will be banned from 2040 to improve air quality. The crackdown could also see the introduction of levies on busy roads for owners of the most polluting vehicles. And hopes of a major scrappage scheme to help those who were encouraged to buy diesels appear to have been dashed. The strategy will be launched today by ministers Michael Gove and Chris Grayling. It was forced on the Government by defeat in a High Court case on air pollution. From 2040, drivers will be able to buy electric cars only – ending the near 150-year reign
Senate Republicans assembled the votes to move to a controversial bill to repeal Obamacare Tuesday afternoon, with a last-minute boost from ailing Sen. John McCain. The Senate moved to debate an Obamacare repeal bill by a vote of 50 to 50 – with Vice President breaking the tie. But protesters seized a key moment as the final vote approached by standing and pleading with lawmakers: ´Don´t kill us, kill the bill.´ As the Senate clerk ticked through the votes on a pivotal motion to proceed to the health care bill, just two Republicans broke ranks: Sen. Susan Collins of Maine
President Trump needs to have a talk with Rex Tillerson. Tillerson’s State Department has issued a report that blames Israel for…EVERYTHING. Nobody saw that coming. Well I sure didn’t. Love Trump. Tillerson, not so much, even from the start. The report okays Arab violence as a means to redress “frustrations” and “disappointments”…such as “lack of hope in achieving Palestinian statehood.” The Jews, according to this, are obliged to hand over the country to the Arabs. Wait. There’s more. The report faults the Jews, yes, Israel, for “incitement.” (Stop laughing.) Actually there’s much more. But in sum, the main gripe is that the Jews
An Israeli security official serving in the Israeli embassy in Amman, Jordan, was wounded Sunday night when he was attacked by a terrorist in his home adjacent to the embassy. Two Jordanian men were killed in the incident, including the suspected terrorist. Local police have released few details of the attack, referring only to an unspecified “incident” at the embassy compound. At this time there are still conflicting reports regarding the details of the attack. According to a report by the Hebrew daily Maariv, the attack took place while furniture was being moved into the home of the deputy security
A SUICIDE attacker killed at least 24 people and injured 40 after detonating a car bomb in Kabul on Monday, police reported. The number of casualties is expected to rise and the target of the attack is not yet known. Acting Interior Ministry spokesman Najib Danish said at least 24 people had been killed and 40 injured but the casualty toll could rise further. Government security sources said a small bus owned by the Ministry of Mines had been destroyed. Salim Rasouli, director of the city´s hospitals, said at least 13 dead and 17 wounded had been taken to hospitals. The
President Trump finally tweeted on Sunday, after a trip to his Trump National Golf Club in Virginia, calling out members of his own party for not defending him better against the Russian collusion claims. ´It´s very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President,´ Trump wrote Sunday, following a tweet that said, ´As the phony Russian Witch Hunt continues, two groups are laughing at this excuse for a lost election taking hold, Democrats and Russians!´ Trump has continually griped about the sets of investigations, including several on Capitol Hill,
It was the ultimate humiliation. The 60-strong garrison of highly trained Royal Marines were frogmarched with their hands up through Port Stanley and forced to lie face-down on a road with the Argentinian conquerors of the Falkland Islands strutting victoriously over them. Press photographs of their capitulation were flashed around the world and were printed here under banner headlines such as ´Surrender´ and ´Shame´ alongside reports that the Marines had run up the white flag with barely a shot fired. Even the official history of the conflict, written by Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman, suggests that their resistance was little more than token
New research shows that ancient humans had sex with non human species. According to a study conducted by Omer Gokcumen, an assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of Buffalo, ancient humans had intercourse with a "ghost species" of "proto human". Gokcumen explains that humans are only one member of a broader species named "hominins". The research found that humans had sex with other members of the hominins group.
President Trump and his advisers are floating possible replacements for Attorney General Jeff Sessions — and the list includes Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), The Washington Post reports.Cruz and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) are reportedly among the candidates Trump’s team is considering to replace Sessions, though Giuliani said earlier in the day that he´s not being considered. Trump has repeatedly said that he is disappointed by Sessions’s decision to recuse himself from the probe into ties between the Trump administration and Russia, saying in an interview last week that he would have never hired Sessions if he knew
When President Trump made his initial remarks reflecting disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions it was initially unnerving. The subsequent fallout from the public criticism has united the NeverTrump crowd, Cruzbots and professionally GOPe, to defend the honor of the much beloved former Senator. The opportunity to bash Trump is simply an ancillary benefit. Conversely, the MAGA community has largely portrayed the rift as if the Presidential critique was part of a larger strategy between the President and Attorney General. If we wait long enough some mysterious master plan will eventually to be discovered. However, the subsequent POTUS tweets and comments do
Former House Speaker John Boehner said at an event in Las Vegas last week that he used to “sneak into” the White House to see President Barack Obama to avoid scrutiny from the “right-wing press,” according to a report by the Washington Post, which obtained a videotape of Boehner’s remarks. Boehner also lamented the fact that Americans now have too many choices of where to go for news and information. “What’s making everything even worse today is because we have so much news, people get to choose where they get their news,” Boehner said, according to the Post. “It used
At the end of a Senate subcommittee hearing on Tuesday morning, someone sitting near Chairman Susan Collins (R-Maine) didn’t switch off a microphone. Collins was recorded discussing the federal budget and President Trump’s lack of familiarity with the details of governing with a colleague — apparently Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.), the ranking Democrat on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies subcommittee.
BALTIMORE - African American activists have a message for Democrats: If you want to win back the White House, strongly consider a black person on the ticket. On their list are a growing roster of black politicians, notably Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J. and Kamala Harris, D-Calif., former Attorney General Eric Holder and Deval Patrick, former governor of Massachusetts. Turnout among African Americans in the 2016 presidential election was the smallest in 20 years. It’s a big concern as the NAACP holds its annual convention this week in Baltimore, its first major gathering since the election. Hilary Shelton, head of the NAACP’s
Former House IT staffer Imran Awan was arrested Monday night at Dulles International Airport where he was "trying to leave the country," Fox news reported Tuesday evening. Following his arrest for bank fraud, Awan was finally fired by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla. (Snip) Imran and his Pakistani-born brothers, Abid and Jamal Awan, are currently under criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Police and the FBI on suspicion that they accessed congressional computers without permission and stole equipment. There is also evidence of "financial schemes that extend beyond the Capitol Police’s purview and may expand to Pakistan," according to The Daily
Monday on WISN’s “The Jay Weber Show,” Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) defended special counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation into Russian election interference by saying Mueller was “anything but” a “biased partisan.” A listener asked Ryan a question about why Republicans in Congress are not doing more to defend Trump against “what is becoming an obvious witch-hunt.” Ryan replied, “Remember, Bob Mueller is a Republican, who was appointed by a Republican, who served in the Republican administration, and crossed over — I mean and stayed on until his term ended.” He continued, “I don’t think many people are saying Bob
Sticky-fingered socialist Bernie Sanders is apparently stealing his neighbor´s Washington Post subscription, as any good socialist might do. In perhaps the funniest and most fitting news of the year, WMAL radio host Chris Plante told his audience of a story he heard from friends about the elderly senator. A man living next to Sanders apparently called the Post to complain that he was hardly ever receiving his subscription. After an investigation into the matter, the paying customer realized that it was his neighbor, Senator Sanders, who was stealing the paper right from under his nose. (Snip) First it was reported that
President Trump´s recent comments undermining Attorney General Jeff Sessions came off as unprofessional to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who may depart his post sooner than expected, according to a report. Trump went after Sessions, his first congressional endorser and a longtime advisor, for having recused himself from oversight of the FBI´s Russia probe, speaking during a New York Times interview last week. ´I think is very unfair to the president,´ Trump said. ´It´s extremely unfair, and that´s a mild word, to the president,´ Trump said in reference to the nation´s top law enforcement officer. Several sources say the former Exxon CEO found
President Donald Trump’s dramatic decision to exclude so-called “transgender” people from the military is a direct rejection of the progressives’ revolutionary demand that Americans’ society should be remade to eliminate all civic recognition of the two different-and-complementary male and female sexes. (Tweets) The Wednesday decision was greeted with anger from the left, which had hoped that the military’s 2016 endorsement of the transgender ideology would push the Supreme Court and legislators nationwide to impose and establish the unpopular claim that a person’s changeable choice of “gender” is more legally important than their biological sex. If endorsed by the courts, that
President Donald Trump brought his bombastic politics to a Boy Scouts event Monday in West Virginia, drawing cheers from the children gathered at the event and prompting comparisons between his rousing rhetoric and Nazi youth rallies from some liberal activists and journalists. (Snip) "The Boy Scouts must distance themselves from that offensive attempt to politicize scouting and turn them into a Trump youth organization," wrote Richard W. Painter, vice-chairman of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and the chief ethics lawyer in the White House under Bush, on Twitter Monday night.
