Turn up the flame and stir

According to this story in the Washington Post, some US activists have started a boycott of Campbell's. Why? Because the company sells halal-certified soup in Canada.

The boycotters, led by Pamela Geller of the blog Atlas Shrugs, say their objection is not to halal food. It's to who is doing the certifying: the Islamic Society of North America, "an organization that government prosecutors alleged had ties to the terrorist group Hamas in a 2007 conspiracy case," according to the story. ISNA denies any such ties. The boycott group also alleges ISNA has connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.

At any rate, objecting to the who rather than the what may be too subtle a distinction for Facebook. A page there calls on people to "BOYCOTT Campbell Soup for their certification of their products as halal- and supporting The Muslim Brotherhood." Some "friends" of the page have posted anti-Muslim comments and content. It seems at least some of the Facebook page's 3,600+ fans actually do object to halal food.

Would the boycotters be satisfied if Campbell's were to switch to another organization that does halal certification, one that they deem acceptable? Is there one that they deem acceptable?

I somewhat doubt the main intent of the boycott is to affect the company's actions or sales. Making a can of Campbell's soup is easy: add water, turn up the flame, and stir. Apparently it's no more difficult to bring people to a simmer.

Hate the sinner, not the soup.


The Kosher Food Tax: Jews Taxing the unsuspecting Goyim

Anti-Semitic racist Pam Geller hates halal meat certifiers used by Campbell Soup. Time for the Americans to start boycotting the kosher food Industry because their rabbinical certifiers finance and support war crimes and genocide against the Palestinian people

This woman hates and hates then raises hatred yet again to a new level. I am sure she is Abe Foxman in female form. I have been to her site since before my eyes were opened even.. only because of the art she posted. Now she posts hatred. Her purposeful distortion of facts is criminal and her proposal that Arabs run Washington is nothing short of ludicrous.

Personally, considering the chemicals in most of Campbell's products, I would think she would celebrate the destruction of Islam through nutrition but perhaps that is just too subtle for this witch. She is actually an attractive witch to the eye. But that evil does tend to make even the prettiest ugly as sin.

And yes I have been meaning to do a piece on Kosher tax. Maybe it is time to get around to it.
