America is beginning to see the introduction of halal certified food products and certified companies thus the need for this exposition.

Halal is arabic and translates to legal or permitted.  Haram translates to forbidden and mushbooh translates to unknown. Food has to be prepared a certain way to meet Sharia Law/ Halal standards.

Halal is not necessarily only a food item but it can also define an individual as well as an individual company.  sFor example,  a tomato is halal, but it may not be processed according to Sharia Law thus making it haram or mushbooh.

In order for a company, which is defined as farms, ranches, fisheries, and food processing plants,  to become Halal Certified,  another process has to take place, which we will discuss that later.

Don’t think that halal only applies to food.  It also applies to all non-food products such as lotions, hair sprays, make-up, etc.

However let’s just focus on food.  Halal foods are foods that have no pork,  blood, or alcohol  within the product.  If the food product is a meat then halal extends to how it is processed. The animal has to be alive at the time the animal is slaughtered.

This answers the question as to why Muslims want certification on fish and poultry products.

Sharia law demands that food processors add other components in order to get the Halal Certification of the product, or the company itself which includes the Halal Certification logo, see below

To get a certification, a company must:

  1. Have Halal employees who are involved in the production which “includes the person in charge, those who order the raw materials,  and those in charge of packaging.”  In other words, the company must hire halal compliant employees.  Does this mean the company can only hire koranic observant muslims or will employees of the company have to submit to Sharia compliant rules including conversion to Islam?
  2. Slaughter the animal according to Sharia Law.  This means that the animal is either hung up, or placed in a position so that the head is pointing towards Mecca, alive,  and then ONLY a muslim can take a sharp knife,  and slice its jugular vein allowing the beast to be drained of its blood while a muslim of “sound mind” screeches “allah akbar” over the animal.
  3. Once the animal has been drained of blood then the animal is processed in a plant free from pork, blood, or alcohol processing.

Not only do companies have to comply with the rules above but they will also have to change recipes they may have had for 100 years or more.  The Campbell’s Soup Company, which was established in 1922, or the Cocoa Cola Company which became incorporated in 1892 will have to strip itself of the way they do business. Companies seeking halal standards will have to have an entire wing just to deal with halal standards i.e. hiring, building of plants, food processing, etc.   This begs the question: Will these companies have to submit to Sharia compliant financing as well including giving zakat?

Currently, if an observant muslim wants to know if a food product is halal they can go to one of two websites,

  1. the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America’s website, or
  2. the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), logo below.

The customer can scan the 100s of products listed for halal status and or certification. ISNA IS working towards advancing its cause of certifying as many Canadian and American companies as possible.

One argument they use is:

Islam is the fastest growing religion, and the American muslim population is growing,  thus,  don’t you want to get involved with this yearly 170 billion dollar market?  Sure you do! Here’s how to do it!

What they don’t tell you at the time of the company’s multicultural submission is that the companies have to build set part plants and hire only muslims.

The companies named above are going Halal in European markets including Canada.  McDonald’s Company just announced that its British stores are selling halal products.  When this writer wrote to the American McDonald’s Company announcing her boycott of all future McDonald’s sales, the representative stated

McDonald’s USA has no connection to the European menu selections.

A closer examination of her assertion states otherwise as the stock isn’t segregated by national markets and that it is still ALL one global company, so make sure when you write to any of these companies be aware of this future talking point.

In conclusion, what starts in Europe soon becomes advanced on the North American continent and I for one don’t want to spend my money on products that comply with a regressive political ideology that wants to do to me, and what was done to Nick Berg,  in the same manner that they slaughter their meat.

Rep Sue Myrick is now a target of Islamic fundamentalists who desperately want to shut her up.  She is NOT and “Islamaphobe,” but that is the weapon of choice used by stealth jihad apologists and defenders. In this op-ed piece, she responds truthfully and poignantly about the attempt to deliberately place CAIR interns at the highest levels of United States national security. Read the whole thing; it’s astonishing.

– Paul Revere

Rep. Sue Myrick op-ed:

Last week, I held a press conference on Capitol Hill attended by three of my colleagues in the House of Representatives to call for a federal investigation (s) into a non-profit group called the Council on American Islamic Relations (C.A.I.R.)

Here are the facts:

1. CAIR has documented ties to the terrorist organization HAMAS. This is stated fact by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

In an April 28, 2009 letter to US Senator Jon Kyl, the FBI wrote the following:
“As you know, CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development in the United States v. Holy Land Foundation et al. (Cr. No. 3:04-240-P (N.D.TX.). During that trial, evidence was introduced that demonstrated a relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders (including its current President Emeritus and its Executive Director) and the Palestinian Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestinian Committee and HAMAS, which was designated a terrorist organization in 1995. In light of that evidence, the FBI suspended all formal contacts between CAIR and the FBI.”

In case you are not familiar with the Holy Land trial referenced above, it was a Dallas, Texas trial that ended with guilty verdicts on 108 counts of funneling money ($12 million) to HAMAS.

2. The purpose of our press conference was to make public an internal CAIR memo that documented CAIR’s stated goal of placing CAIR interns in the offices of members of Congress, especially the members who serve on the Homeland Security, Judiciary and Intelligence Committees. Let me be clear here, CAIR, a group whom the FBI says is affiliated with the terrorist group HAMAS, is trying to place their interns in the offices of those members who serve on the three committees that handle national security related issues. National Security is the first responsibility of the federal government.

3. Following our press conference, CAIR, immediately labeled we four members as bigots and started their public relations campaign to discredit us by claiming that we were against Muslims working on Capitol Hill. We never said that. At no time during our press conference did we even insinuate that we were investigating Muslims being interns on Capitol Hill. Go to http://www.youtube.com/suemyricknc09 and watch the press conference yourself.

Our focus was and is on CAIR and CAIR alone, not Muslims.

Likewise CAIR tried to make this a Republican vs. Democrat thing, because the four members at the press conference happened to be Republican.

How then does CAIR explain Democrat Senator Charles Schumer’s call earlier this year for a government-wide ban on CAIR in the federal government due to their ties to HAMAS? Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer has likewise made public her opinions of CAIR and any Google search will find her remarks.

4. CAIR is spending time, money and energy to position themselves as the spokespeople for the moderate Muslim community. Problem is CAIR is not a moderate Muslim organization. It is a radical front group for HAMAS. So who is CAIR competing with for this designation? The real moderate Muslim groups/individuals in America. Groups and individuals like the following who are committed to countering Islamist extremism:

Dr. Hedieh Mirahmadi – President World Organization for Resource Development and Education (WORDE)
Zeyno Baran – Director for the Center for Eurasian Policy at the Hudson Institute
Farid Ghadry – President of the Reform Party of Syria
Manda Zand Ervin – Founder and director of the Alliance of Iranian Women
Omran Salman – Arab Reformists Project, ‘Aafaq (Arabic for “horizons”).
Dr. Zuhdi Jasser – American Islamic Forum for Democracy
Karim Bromund – Director of Inter-Religious Affairs for the Islamic Supreme Council of America

I SUPPORT the Muslim individuals and groups mentioned above. These groups renounce terrorists and their radical ideology. They are trying their hardest to be heard and recognized in America, but are being overshadowed and out-funded by CAIR. Today, when something happens that impacts the Muslim community, the media calls CAIR (an unindicted co-conspirator to terrorism and a HAMAS front group) for comment on behalf of American Muslims. What an insult the media is performing on the Muslim community. Instead they should be calling Muslim groups/individuals like those named above. This is part of the reason we are focusing our attention on CAIR and exposing them for who they are. For one they pose a threat to our national security, and two, they deny the ability of legitimate Muslim groups to gain credibility.

5. In July of this year I held a summit on Capitol Hill where I introduced the leaders of eight moderate Muslim organizations to the heads of several US Agencies, Members of Congress and congressional staff. For example, they met with representatives from the State Department, USAID, Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. How can I be against Muslims working on Capitol Hill and hold such an event? Go to http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.3881/pub_detail.asp and read for yourself about this summit.

See through the lies and realize what is really going on here.

We are trying to expose a HAMAS Front Group (CAIR) for who they are, and they are crying we are anti-Muslim hoping that media outlets will ignore the terrorist claim and instead pick it up as a race/religion story. When those claims don’t work, they claim it’s a Republican political thing.

Americans, on this subject we need to stop the Republican vs. Democrat, Conservative vs. Liberal, Christian vs. Muslim division and unite on one simple point…. CAIR is a front group for HAMAS. It was named as an un-indicted co-conspirator in a terrorism case that lead to 108 convictions of funneling $12 million to HAMAS. Because of the evidence produced in that case, the FBI severed all ties with them. This same CAIR, by their own admission, is trying to place people inside the offices of members of Congress who deal with national security issues (judiciary, homeland security and intelligence committees). I serve on one of those committees, Intelligence, am the co-chairwoman of the House Anti-Terrorism Caucus, and have spent the better part of the last four years working every day on terrorism related issues.

If we Americans fail to set aside our political, religious and ideological differences and unite when we encounter the enemy in such stark and plain terms, then God help us.

She is spared from a homebrewed Islamic execution, for now.  New hearing September 1st, so now is the time to contact Florida Governor Christ.

First, here’s ACT for America founder Brigitte Gabrielle on FOX, trying to enlighten the masses about the real danger of allowing Islamic sharia law to have a grip anywhere.

How about THESE:

It is VERY clear if you read this that you should IGNORE the talking heads at CAIR (and their Saudi funded defense for Rifqa’s parents). The Qur’an itself says it’s okay to deceive people and lie in order to further Islam (and Islamic ways). I said it before: if evere there were a time to lie about Islamic law, the mandated death of a 17 year old girl for converting to Christianity is a great time to do it.

Pamela Gellar at Atlas Shrugs rightly says, “Rifqa Bary is the highest value [Islamic] target in America. She should be under 24 hour guard. Period.”

PR sez: Miranda righs are for american CITIZENS, not for enemies on the battlefield (including those non-citizens that may be potting mass destruction here on our own soil). This blast of common sense – even with this apologetic administration – is refreshing!

This bit is from the ACT emails I receive. You can click the link below to receive them yourself!

Another Victory in Congress!!

Senate Votes to Prohibit Reading Miranda

Rights to Terrorists Captured in Afghanistan.

by Guy Rodgers, Executive Director

 

Every victory we win in the struggle against radical Islam brings us one step closer to our ultimate goal of protecting America’s security and freedoms from this evil threat.

On June 11th we emailed you the Weekly Standard article that reported the following disturbing news:

“…the Obama Justice Department has quietly ordered FBI agents to read Miranda rights to high value detainees captured and held at U.S. detention facilities in Afghanistan, according a senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee.”

News reports like this one, along with our email alert to over 60,000 ACT! for America members, raised the profile of this issue significantly. We wrote some Members of Congress about it, and we got the attention of some of them.

Less than four weeks after we sent you this email report, during a Senate Committee on Armed Services hearing, Senator Jeff Sessions introduced Senate Amendment #1661. According to a response letter we received on August 4th from another Senator, Amendment 1661 “would prevent Miranda rights from being provided to suspected Al Qaeda terrorists who are detained by members of the U.S. military or intelligence community.”

The amendment was approved by voice vote and included in the overall Defense Authorization bill, which then passed the Senate 87 to 7. We are optimistic this amendment will be retained in the final House-Senate version of the bill, and then become law.

Most people aren’t aware of this significant congressional action. It wasn’t on the front page of newspapers around the country. But who knows how many acts of terror will be thwarted in the future due to intelligence obtained from captured terrorists who are not read Miranda rights?

  • Most Americans do not know they are protected from lawsuits being filed against them when they report suspicious activity.
  • Most Americans don’t know authors in New York writing about terrorism and radical Islam are protected from intimidation lawsuits filed against them in other countries.
  • And, should this latest Senate action become law, most Americans won’t know that future terrorist acts will be thwarted thanks to intelligence gathering that is not shackled by the absurdity of reading Miranda rights to captured enemy combatants.

ACT! for America and its “sister” organization American Congress for Truth played a role in each of these important victories.

Our voices – and our votes – matter!!

This is our mission, to roll back the threat of radical Islam, in whatever form it takes. The more members and chapters we have, the stronger our voice. The stronger our voice, the more victories we will win.

Do you know ONE person who isn’t receiving our email alerts, who isn’t aware of the severity of the threat and what ACT! for America is doing to combat it?

If so, would you forward this email to that person today and ask that person to sign up for our email alerts? All they have to do is log on to www.actforamerica.org and click on the tab at the upper right that says “Sign Up.”

This simple action will make our voice stronger and help make America safer for us, our children and our grandchildren.

Yours for the America we love,

Guy Rodgers

This from Jeffrey Imm in the comments section, but it deserves more prominence (here ya go, Jeffrey):

To those willing to do something about it, Responsible for Equality And Liberty plans a public protest outside the Oak Lawn Hilton the morning of the conference – see our web site at:
http://www.realcourage.org/2009/07/july-19-chicago/

We can get from behind our computers and actually show the public that we are willing to be Responsible for Equality And Liberty…

The Oak Lawn Hilton’s website is here:

http://www1.hilton.com/en_US/hi/hotel/OALHIHF-Hilton-Oak-Lawn-Illinois/index.do

And their phone number is 1-708-425-7800, and ask for the manager in charge of meetings, and let him or her know the treason their about to sponsor, and perhaps gently remind them that the Qur’an itself is full of the “hate speech” (and corresponding bad publicity) they probably don’t want associated with the fine Hilton family of hotels.
