Creating Muslim-only jobs in Australia

The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) has a plan to boost jobs and help expand the beef industry in Australia: train halal butchers.  Sounds good on paper but the end result of this plan will be the hiring and training of Muslims only.  There is no place for non-Muslims in a halal-friendly slaughterhouse so the jobs will mainly benefit the Islamic community.  This is bad on many levels, but the blatant supremacist attitude on display by Muslims in Australia bodes ill for the future.

Australian Muslim community demands 'taxpayer-funded halal training centre'

Canberra, June 20 : Australia's top Muslim body has demanded a new taxpayer-funded halal training centre that would prepare refugees for jobs slaughtering animals in rural areas.

The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) said the centre would help solve the live-animal export dilemma while boosting jobs and maintaining the meat and livestock industry.

According to the Herald Sun, AFIC President Ikebal Patel will write to Agriculture Minister Joe Ludwig within days to seek financial backing.

Patel insisted that for a “couple of million dollars” taxpayers would get more country jobs, more refugees out of big-city "enclaves" and into work, and a stronger home-grown meat and livestock industry.

“We think the Australian Muslim community can help both the Government and the meat and livestock industry,” said Patel.

He said that more Australian meat-processing plants could be opened as a result of training, with halal meat shipped offshore to places such as Indonesia.
