Quote# 31668

Jewish Food Tax

On every pantry shelf in America, lay dozens of canned and packaged food products which have a tiny "K" or "U" printed on the label.

This symbol informs Orthodox Jews that the items have been checked by a rabbi, to make sure that they have been prepared in accordance with "Jewish Dietary law", as set forth in the Jewish Talmud -(the real "bible" of the Jews.)

American food companies are forced to pay multi-billions of dollars to several Orthodox Jewish organizations, just so an estimated 10% to 20% of Jewry, (or 800,000 to no more than 1.2 million Orthodox Jews), will buy their products. Please bear in mind that this is a country of 270 million people, and we are all forced to pay this Kosher Tax, just to appease LESS THAN ONE PERCENT OF THE POPULATION!

This comes out of your pocket !

Beware: Each nation has its own symbol. Check in local Jewish publications, to find out what mark of the beast, is being used in your own country.

This is strictly a religious tax, which millions of non-Jews unknowingly pay each time they buy a basket load of groceries! What would happen if a group of Christian ministers or priests got together, and demanded that all companies pay them a similar tax? They could use a "C," symbol (for Christian), or a cross, (for Christ), threatening that those who refuse to print such a label on their products would be boycotted by Christians.

If that happened you would hear an enraged outcry from the ACLU, American Jewish Committee, Jewish Anti-Defamation League, etc. They would be filing suits to stop this "violation of the Constitutional provisions providing for the separation of Church and State." But, because of the Jews' centuries old claim of being "a poor persecuted people" along with the Christian fear of being accused of "anti-Semitism," there is a deafening silence on this problem. Note: Modern Jews are not Semites, or the Jews of the Bible.

Snopes says you're wrong. I say you're an idiot. Between the two of us I think we've got you pegged.

Well, considering food is, per capita, actually cheaper in the US than it is in much of Western Europe, I don't really see this as a concern, even if it was true. Inane Libertarianism and Anti-Semitism... what a lovely combination...

Besides, kashrut tends to result in a higher quality standard for the covered items anyway. I'll take a Hebrew National over a Fenway Frank any day.

Wow. FSTDT, RSTDT and CTSTDT all in one fantastic post of fail. Well done FullofShit!

You're an idiot. That's not the mark of the beast, that's tolerance. Lots of countries already have similar laws about Muslim food.

This conspiracy theory brought to you by the government's secret messages transmitted from my teeth.

Hey, I buy meat from a Halal shop. Not because I have any faith, but because the butcher sells me the very best product at a fair price.

Here's simply way moron. The Jews won't eat food that isn't Kosher due to their religion. So in order for these companies in order to reach a wider consumer base they bring these rabbis in the make sure everything is Kosher so they can sell it to Jewish people. You are fucking retarded and paranoid.

Just for the record, I wouldn't eat anything with a cross on it. If you see the obituaries, you can see it usually means "defunct".

As a person with an affinity to the libertarian economics schools, I feel fully insulted with this demonstration of pseudo-logic and ignorance of simple markets laws.
This person is full of FAIL.

And if you don't want to pay for kosher foods, don't buy them. If it's actually cheaper to produce a non-kosher version, I guarantee that some company will make it for the 99% of the population who doesn't care and would like to save the money.

You don't know shit about the Kosher laws do you?

If that's less than one percent of the population, wouldn't a boycott have no leverage whatsoever??

Not like churches and other relgious-based establishments get tax breaks. I'd say that's pretty generous coming from a government that should stay out of religious affairs in the first place. Your unfounded beliefs don't warrant that kind of benefit, to be sure.

you can actually find some pretty great deals in the kosher isle. Personally my weekly shopping includes one muslim (moderate) grocer (they have an absolutely ridiculous selection of olives and really cheap unsalted cashews), the kosher isle at the loblaws (their beef is really fresh and I'm too lazy to hit the farmer's market EVERY time in winter, fair price too) and a "traditional" chinese herb store (no clue how real or traditional that may be, but awesome fresh herbs for cooking).

Food's the good part of multiculturalism. If only more people would try to export that part instead of hatred...

Plucking something right out of Snopes indicates a lack of trolling effort. Please try harder next time or don't try at all.

It's an age-old canard which goes nowhere. One, they don't have to pay billions to the rabbis to have a K certificate. They just pay a little quantity of money, the same way they pay labs to analyse their products and it's already included in the budget. You fail.

How do you come up with all this bullshit?

11/28/2007 7:53:26 AM



Umm, did Jesus ever actually say that his followers could stop keeping kosher? Or, in fact, that they would shrivel up and then explode or something if they then continued to eat kosher food?
