Muslamic Ray Gun Meet “Islam as a Country” Stephanie Banister

Remember the EDL member who was afraid of Muslamic ray guns, well if he isn’t married I’ve found the perfect match for him: Stephanie Banister.

Ms. Bannister was busy putting “halal=terrorism” stickers on food products recently but apparently she is dumber than a stack of bricks.

PAULINE Hanson’s One Nation party has nominated a woman facing criminal charges over alleged anti-Muslim behaviour to contest the Queensland seat of Rankin.

Stephanie Banister, a 27-year-old mother of two, is facing criminal charges after allegedly placing anti-Muslim stickers, like “Halal food funds terrorism”, on Nestle products in a supermarket.

Never mind that though. Ms Banister has bigger problems.

In an interview with Channel Seven, which aired last night, Ms Banister revealed her dearth of knowledge on, well, everything.

“I don’t oppose Islam as a country, but I do feel that their laws should not be welcome here in Australia,” she said, apparently oblivious to the fact that Islam is a religion, not a country.

One Nation is famous for another iconic one liner. When party founder Pauline Hanson was asked if she was xenophobic by Tracey Curro on 60 Minutes in 1996, she replied: “Please explain?”

Arguing for a ban on Halal food last night, Ms Banister said “less than two per cent of Australians follow Haram.”

The term “Haram” refers to something which is prohibited. It kind of works in this context. If you really think about it. OK not really.

In any case, Ms Banister doesn’t have a problem with Jewish Kosher food.

“Jews aren’t under Haram, they have their own religion which follows Jesus Christ,” she said.

You’re thinking of Christianity there, Stephanie.

“They don’t have a tax on it, they’ve just got a certain way of making it where Haram has a tax on the food,” Ms Banister said. Except, as Channel Seven pointed out, Kosher food does have a fee.

    We have the word “charem.” (The “ch” is a gutteral, not a “ch” like in cheese. One would pronounce the word roughly as chay-rem) It means, basically, banned or prohibited.

    Believing that Jesus is God, part of a trinity, or in some other way a part or aspect of God (other than something like a view that all humans reflect some aspect of God) would definitely be considered charem.

    Thinking of Jesus as a historical figure, and even a zealot (per Reza Aslan), is perfectly fine in Judaism. As a human, Jesus’ teachings could then be evaluated as they stand on their own, the same way one might with the teachings of any moral philosopher.

    This is priceless stuff, whatever she smoked before the interview, I want the same thing.
    More seriously, such idiots are not only comic relief material, they’re also so dumb that they end up as a good campaign material to fight islamophobia, keep up the good work girl!

    Maybe she is talking about Messianic Jews.. When it comes to good non-christians propagated by evangelist groups these are the ones to adhere to.. I guess since in their essence they are more evangelist than they were jewish.. Funnily, the same goes for the occidental jewish-christian-heritage.. That’s what came to my mind when I read Banister’s ranting.. Obviously she is totally off course, without being aware of it.. You think she is stupid as hell? No, even more so..
