As per the wishes of NZ’s Islamic State leader, and FIANZ, Jacinda Ardern sets a new world precedent for appeasement. We see again that Te Amorangi Kieka-Waanga, (a.k.a. Isaac) is a perfect representation for ordinary Islam here in New Zealand.
Just a week after the shooting, the leader of Islamic State in New Zealand stated that he wanted Tarrant tried under Islamic Sharia law, by the NZ Muslim community. Islamic State in NZ previously went by the name of Aotearoa Maori Muslim Association (AMMA) and represented over 1000 local NZ Muslims, and was popular with immigrants. A month after the Islamic State leaders request, the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand (FIANZ) formally requested the same, adding that they wanted the rest of NZ to come under the same law via a Royal Commission sponsored by the NZ Government. There is no difference of values between Kieka-Waanga, FIANZ, and the NZ Islamic population.
The relationship between Kieka-Waanga and FIANZ goes back over a decade to their assistance in setting up the AMMA and the Maori halal certification industry. The expansion of Islam here in New Zealand has been extensively funded by the millions collected each year by FIANZ and others through halal certification.
