    This is stupid hate mongering.  There are lots of products in the
    supermarket which aren't kosher.  And the kosher community simply
    ignores them.  Every bit of meat in the average grocery store butcher
    section is unkosher.  Most processed foods which includes meat -
    including every TV dinner - is unkosher.  Every frozen pizza with
    pepperoni or sausage on it is unkosher.  Lots of other foods in your
    average grocery store are unkosher.  The kosher Jewish community simply
    ignores those foods.  They don't make a fuss about them.

    And IF you think it costs more money to produce kosher food, it is
    obvious from the list above that you have lots of non-kosher choices to
    pick from in every grocery store.

    There is no kosher tax.  There is no issue here.  All there is here are
    hate mongering anti-semitics who think they can lie to the masses to
    score a few points.

    Lets see you rebut this, Joebuck.
