Oh My. Look What I Started

Right-Wing Bloggers: Campbell's Canadian Soup Has Terrorist Link

Update: From the article:
...What seems to be lost in the American blogosphere is the fact that Campbell's halal soups are not offered in the U.S., and the company says it's not planning to.
The company says ISNA was selected after consultations with professionals in the field of Islamic foods and nutrition, and with Islamic scholars.

ISNA has denied any ties to Hamas and has specifically condemned religious extremism and violence, the Washington Post said in a story headlined "A Canadian line of Campbell's soups has activists stewing over Islamic connection."

And the Muslim Brotherhood, a fundamentalist political movement founded in Egypt in the 1920s, is not included in the U.S. State Department's list of foreign terrorist organizations, the report said...
To recap: ISNA, Muslim Bro's, and for that matter "Islamic scholars"--totally innocuous/not threatening in the least. So go back to sleep now, 'kay?

Update: The story is noticed by the WSJ and the WaPo (but, oddly enough, no mainstream papers in Canada).

Update: It's at the tail end of the 9:00 a.m. news on AM640.
