    Mr Luke Simpkins is famous in Australia for suffering from XENOPHOBIA. Mr Simpkins is afraid of HALAL-MEAT.
    Luke Simpkins, has bizarre fear of Halal meat:

    .
    The Western Australian MP came under heavy fire in 2011 after proclaiming that Australians who unwittingly eat halal food are “one step down the path of conversion” to Islam. During the address, Simpkins paraphrased the Prophet Muhammad: “He reportedly said, ‘The non-believers will become Muslims when, amongst other things, they eat the meat that we have slaughtered.’ This is one of the key aspects to converting non-believers to Islam.”
    .
    Mr Simpkins has very little knowledge of foreign cultures/politics but yet he seems to get involved in other nations political affairs instead of concentrating on DARK AUSTRALIAN HISTORY just stone throw away from where he resides (Rottnest Island).

    Rottnest Island’s dark past:
    From 1838, for nearly 100 years, Rottnest Island, about 20km off the coast of Western Australia, was a prison where 3700 Aboriginal men and boys, ranging in age from eight to 70, were brought from right across the state to be imprisoned, often for minor offenses such as stealing food. Etc…
    .
    If we were talking about our real history in Australia, we would be talking about massacres, violence and abuse and the introduction of diseases to kill off races of people…
    ..but that is not what we teach in our schools.
    .
    Simpkins should talk about Australian Aboriginal dark past history that happened not too long ago.
    Since the European invasion of Australia in 1788 by convicts, the invaders were led to believe that Australian Aborigines were a bunch of animals (Land was terra nullius).
    .
    Eddie Mabo living in Murray Island, 2022 KM away from Australia in 1992 managed to prove that Aboriginals were also humans. Mabo managed to do this because he was not in Australia, otherwise, he would have been killed like the rest…..
    .
    Maybe Mr Simpkins should make application for returning Australian Aboriginal Land to their rightful owners.
    Simpkins should talk about Australian Aboriginal dark past history that happened not too long ago.

    This Australian uninformed man should get permission from the Queen of England before commenting. This man should read the following before flapping his gums again.
