When the Muslim population approaches 3% say goodbye to tasty bacon


I wish I was joking but the power of the Halal dollar is immense. Even mighty McDonald’s have capitulated in Australia though the Muslim population, according to the 2011 census, is only 2.2%.

When a couple ordered a burger with bacon at a halal McDonald’s, he was puzzled to find something “watery” on his sandwich. As soon as they confronted the Sharia-compliant franchise worker, they were offered five words that made their stomachs churn.

Taking his frustration out on Facebook, the unnamed man explained how he confronted a fast food employee about the strange substance placed on his burger, only to find that it had everything to do with appeasing the Muslim minority.

“I got a Quarter Pounder and Erica got some Crispy Chicken, BLT Burger (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato). The crispy was some rectangular things like corn chips, but her bacon was cold and sort of pale and watery. When she questioned it at the counter and said the bacon should be cooked and a bit crispy, she was informed that they now do the bacon in the microwave because if they put it on the grill it would contaminate the other meats and they would lose their HALAL Certification.”
She then said, “So I can’t have it now, we have eaten it all our lives because this minority say it offends them.” The only reply was a shrug of the shoulders and a comment that this was a HALAL Store.

It seems that even the mighty Maccas have bowed to the Muslim Halal Beast.

So next time you get a burger from Maccas and wonder why the bacon doesn’t taste right, you’ll know that it was thawed out and heated up in the microwave because it offends less than 3% of the population, (according to Google) and they want to keep their Halal Certification.

I Guess that scratches Maccas off my food list. Maybe a good thing and I’ll lose some weight.

HALAL food is now sold at a dozen McDonald’s restaurants and bacon is off the menu at some KFC outlets to accommodate the religious sensitivities of Australia’s growing Muslim population.

The Muslim population has soared by 40 per cent to 476,291 in just five years – paving the way for a building program of schools, mosques and prayer rooms in the suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne.

Even the country’s biggest sports stadiums, including ANZ Stadium and the MCG, have moved to offer multi-faith prayer rooms for devout Muslims.

A KFC spokesman yesterday said three of its restaurants, including two at Bankstown and Punchbowl, are certified to sell halal food prepared in a way that is acceptable to Muslims.

“KFC is mindful of responding to customer demand and cultural sensitivities in a balanced way,” the spokesman said.

Eight McDonald’s restaurants in Sydney and four in Melbourne offer halal food but, unlike some KFC outlets, they have not taken bacon off the menu.

“We are pleased to be able to offer halal menu items in restaurants where there is strong demand from the local community,” media relations manager Skye Oxenham-Lupul said.

“Our halal restaurants also provide non-halal menu items, however modified storage and food preparation procedures have been implemented to ensure that correct segregation is maintained.”

Figures from the 2011 census show a long-term decline in the number of Australians who identify as Christians – down from 89 per cent in 1976 to 61 per cent in 2011.

But it is the push for official recognition of sharia law that worried many Australians who made submissions to the federal parliamentary inquiry into multiculturalism.

More than 200 submissions to the inquiry raised concerns about or discussed the question of Islam in Australia.


Less than 3% of the population in Australia and Muslims have already managed to have bacon totally removed from the menu at a number of KFC restaurants and have forced Halal McDonald’s restaurants to cook bacon in the microwave. Imagine what they will achieve once their numbers grow. If this is already happening in Australia we are next.
