M-M-Muslim Brotherhood Good?

Campell's Soup Canada is about to go halal. No biggie, right? Wrong. It is doing so under the auspices of the Islamic Society of North America, a Wahhabi-funded racket that is said to have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

M-m-good for the Islamists. Not so yummy for the rest of us.

Update: While 11 Campbell's soups will bear the ISNA "hechsher," the company's one and only kosher soup--Vegetarian Vegetable--is kosher no more.

Update: Quips my cabal pal Closet Conservative, "It's Allah-licious!"

Update: JihadWatch picks up the story.

Update: Campbell's advertises the halal status of its products--I stand corrected, there are 15 not 11 of them--in a Canadian Muslim newspaper. Notice how the soup steam in the ad coalesces into Arabic writing.

Update: BCF does an estimable job on the graphics.

I suppose a Campbell's "Ape 'n' Bacon" soup is out of the question.

and we are surprised when Youtube takes down MEMRI TV? mmmm

This is the stuff Obamunist dream of every day.

Well it's quite simple then.

No more Campbells for me.

When they realize that pandering to 1/30th of the Canadian population is not such a hot idea, they'll see the light soon enough.

BFD They're selling a product to a segment of the market that wants to buy it. That's called capitalism, you pinhead.

No one's putting a gun to your head and forcing you to buy it...

In order for food to be certified halal, more than cruel animal slaughter practices need to be in place.

Specifically, the food may not, at any point during its production, be handled by any person who is not a Muslim, a Christian or a Jew. Therefore, a Hindu, a Sikh or a Buddhist (not to mention atheist) is not permitted to come into contact with the food. If they do - whether as a worker or as any supervisor or supervisor or a supervisor - the food is no longer halal.

Any Christian or Jew who works there must be at the 'worker' level and must be directly supervised by a Muslim. If they are not, the food is no longer halal.

Therefore, if Campbell's is claiming to produce halal soups in Canada, they are admitting to breeching Canadian employment laws.

Somebody should look into this.

Racism wrapped in fear is so much sweeter when it's spouted by the stunningly ignorant and just plain fucking stupid. Classy.

I always expect cowardice from the far right and you guys never disappoint. Halal soup? WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!! AAAH!! PANIC!!

Yeah, that's al Qaeda's big plan -- to take over the world with soup.

Antiquarianation said...

Wow! The level of paranoia on here is amazing. A for-profit company in a free market system wants to supply a niche market with a product it needs. I believe that's the whole point, no? Someone else having one more way stick to their personal dietary restrictions is really not going to affect you in any way.

Matthew Montgomery said...

Jesus F'ing Christ guys. They give Muslims an "option" to become customers and maintain their strict diet not "bending to the will of the terrorists". And if you think all Muslims are terrorists you're a dumb-shit. Just look at the fact that our own US military give our Muslim soldiers the option of halal meals http://www.dscp.dla.mil/subs/rations/programs/rel/relabt.asp

So in America, we have freedom of religion as well as free trade, AND a first amendment featuring freedom of speech and association....and idiots like you are upset over a company that discovers a new market....why again? And when they bend over backwards to cater to Christians, that's quite alright? I'm just trying to figure out to whom the bill of rights pertains.

fuck you.

Yeah, well, I remember an old Campbell's alphabet soup commercial that showed a bowl in which the noodles spelled out their "Mmm, mmm, good" slogan. Did anyone bother to translate the foggy writing? Does it say "Death to America"?

I'm going to invest in aluminum futures. Tinfoil sales must be at an all time high - all those hats.

Nutritionally speaking there is almost no difference between Kosher and Halal. Both avoid pork although I have known many Jews who love their pig on a platter.

Everyone wins because Muslims use fresh preferably free range animals for consumption. I am not sure how fussy Kosher is here so I cannot say. I know that Kosher slaughtering rules are very precise and healthy when it comes to draining the animal, so it goes with Muslims as well.

However, I notice not one Jewish or American detractor of this halal development fails to mention, of course by accident or ignorance, that EVERY food in America carries a Kosher tax. Every food you buy supplies a small amount of money to Jewish coffers. EVERY single thing. This is on the premise that, just in case the food crosses Jewish lips, it has been blessed by a rabbi.

What else is silly in this. Almost all Muslims are just nice mainstream folk. But you just try to find Islamic friendly items or clothing ... or foods. It is not easy so most have things sent from home or purchase via the net, or make them themselves.

Businesses could add an entire new aspect of money making to their coffers if they studied up a little and spoke with a few Muslims and did what Campbell's did. That was a very savvy business move.

It is not as if America can afford to lose potential business just because the woman wears a scarf or the man has an accent! Chances are, behind that accent you will find an intelligent person worthy of cultivation.

Give it a try. Or are you afraid you just might like it?
