from barnabasaid:

"The Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand (FIANZ) claims to certify over 90% of meat exports from the country as halal, making New Zealand the leading global exporter of halal meat with the largest halal slaughterhouses in the world. Despite the country's having an estimated Muslim population of only 41,000 (0.9%)...

"FIANZ issues over 9,000 halal certificates each year, for which they charge the meat suppliers. But in addition, over the past twenty years FIANZ has been providing annual grants to its regional associations for dawa activities. Muslim dawa involves more than gaining individual converts to Islam. For many Muslims it includes the establishing of Islamic enclaves that reveal the power and benefits of Islam to others, while for Islamists it involves the eventual and complete Islamisation of non-Muslim societies, both people and structures."

Im from New Zealand, I thinks its bloody stupid, because New Zealand ain't a Muslim country so why should we cater for Muslims, they should cater for us considering they're in our country...

New Zealand is in danger of becoming an Islamic state due to the small population.
I feel for my friends that have moved out there in recent years.

How are muslims like a disease like maoris?
Atleast these muslims are actually out working and paying tax alhamdulilah.

Muslims, if following our religion correctly, will be respectful, giving (we pay to charities alot of money to avoid greed), calm, honest and all round good people.

Unfortunatly, there are the selected few which give our religion a bad name.
(im a muslim and dont even consider them muslims)

There is over 1.5 billion muslims in this world. If people think we are all terrorists then why are there not 1.5 billion suicide bombings happening?

Do research on Islam. then you will understand what muslims say.

No it isn't. And even that's more of a response than your comment is worth.

Don't worry about them, they're rednecked morons who believe anything they are told as long as it suits their preconceived and ingrained ignorance.

we are not in your country (well the working ones aren't anyway).

It's not as stupid as you make out, renee. It's not rocket science but I'll try and explain it to you regardless. When one is exposed to the financial and economic side of the importing and exporting business you will appreciate the logic ebhind why we did what we did. Then there's the issue with keeping our freezing works running, empolyment, etc, etc...went you weight it all up! you will come to the understanding that these matters are best left to those that know what they are doing, hence why you are in Australia, and no longer in Aotearoa! Enough banta, renee.

The bottom line is we're getting paid more from the muslim countries for our halal meat than what Australia would pay for our internationally renowned meat. Plus we do not want to upset their crybaby farmers (again). I hope this helped.

Totally false!!! we will not! if anything, Britian will become a Islamic state before we ever will, why? cos you have way more Muslims living there then we do here. Don't feel sorry for your friends who have moved here. They're probably having the time of their lives, relaxing enjoying the kiwi experience, snowboarding, skiing in Queenstown. Then retiring to a hottub out in the snow with a glass of bubbly watching Manu Samoa humiliate the Wallabies 32-23 lol! meanwhile, you are where??? ooh that's right, moderately warm Britian. well done.

It's sad to see so many people still find it an issue with someone's race or what they believe in. If that's what you want to do, you do it. But in saying that this is Aoteatoa/New Zealand and if you call this your home, then adopt and immerse yourself into kiwi culture as much as you can but at the same time stay staunch to your own personal beliefs. There is no way this will become a Muslim country judging on New Zealands history we tend not to dwell to much into religion. But are more a he or she's a good neighbor, they're good people kind of country. Don't you think?

I'm sorry to inform you "shad" but Islam isn't a race. Yes it's true, we don't dwell too much on religion here. Sadly for the rest of the world, Muslims do thou. Who on earth would have thought sharia law would now be recognised beside English common law in Britain?. Religious fascists are trying to get the same in Australia , and they will eventually ,due to the half witted "shads" of this world. Then they'll try here.
