According to The New Daily, Jacqui Lambie announced that she will introduce a private senator’s bill to make it a legal requirement for Halal certifiers to disclose how their feed are being spent. While speaking in the Senate on Tuesday night, she made the suggestion that “Halal Money” funds the Islamic State.

Now, large organisations across Australia have to legally disclose where their funds are being spent to make sure Australian business is being conducted with integrity and respect for laws – so why shouldn’t halal certifiers?

When thinking about it, it’s quite a reasonable suggestion. There is so much negative speculation around Halal certification. Brands like Cadbury who pay for the certification have experienced huge uproar from the public driven by social media with thousands of people boycotting the product. This could be chance for the Islamic community to teach the average Australian what Halal is all about and prove that these activities are not related to terrorism as is believed by many.

Then there’s the other side of the argument – why should they have to do something in the face of discrimination? Some people could interpret this as blatant discrimination despite the fact that it could possibly encourage understanding and acceptance.

Could this be one of Jacqui’s better suggestions during her time in politics? It gives a minority society a chance to be understood by the majority and also dispel any rumours and prove that they’re acting with moral conduct.

  3. Too much beauracratic nonsense already, if it keeps going this way, there will be 2 form fillers for every 1 seller.
    We should be doing the opposite

  4. Jacqui lambert is in the senate to represent the 1501 idiots who voted her there. Not once has she tried to do this. She is a grand stander!

    • Mike here-I wonder what qualifications a person requires for them to sit & pontificate on who is an idiot & who is not? Florence, your answer please. I’m from SA so, obviously didn’t vote for the lady, but I do consider her to be a sparkling diamond in the otherwise lacklustre mullock heap called pollieament.

    • A sparkling diamond who goes on radio talkback and discusses that her son is well hung. Have you googled her name and studied her form? Anyway that’s up to you, I think she is the biggest waste of space in the senate and I’m sticking to that. Why don’t you, instead of chastising me, write her a letter and tell how she sparkles….

  5. What a clown you are Jaqui

    • The Australian Federal Police did so and found NO links to funding terrorism. So may be some people need to stop talking rot.

    • Go onto Halal Choices and read it for yourself. They have done all the homework and it would take forever for any of us that have learnt from them to pass it on to you. There are proven connections to the muslim brotherhhood, and a melborne islamic school has just been ordered to pay back govt monies, after it was found to forward funds to islam charities and not spent on services to the school.

  6. Great idea, how could anyone claim discrimination if other Oz businesses have to make available the same info and it would make a big contribution towards dispelling “myths”
