They spoke of the Koran and deep concern for Animal Cruelty and also  expressed  disappointment by some media outlets who blamed Muslims and the Koran in general for the Cruel Live animal Trade. The President of AFIC in  2006 Dr Ameer Ali  released   the following.



From there wearing the PALE cap ( People Against Live Exports) with was formed in conjunction with RSPCA QLD  Wendy met with AMIEU  leaders Mr Tom Hannan.

WA producers form halal venture with Malaysia - 
rom the rural news

A group of West Australian producers has formed a joint venture with Malaysia, to supply the world with halal meat products.

The Wheatbelt Growers Co-operative from Dowerin has signed an agreement with the Perak State Development Corporation to provide 100,000 sheep and 16,000 cattle each year.

Perak wants to become the world distributor of halal food to Muslim countries, with a potential market of 300 billion people.

Chief Minister Tajol Rosli says that'll provide a valuable alternative for Australia's live export trade.

"As it is now, halal food from Malaysia is recognised throughout the world.

"There are some countries that produce halal food, but it is not recognised, especially by the Middle East.

"If it's marketed as Australian, then the recognition by the Muslim countries would not be as good as if it is marketed from Malaysia."

This is a transcript from the ABC National Rural News that is broadcast daily to all states on ABC Regional Radio's Country Hour and in the city on ABC News Radio.
