In the Muslim world, hating Jews is the thing to do. But don’t dare dis Jew food.
The world’s largest kosher food showcase might seem a strange place to make overtures to the Muslim palate, but Jewish food manufacturers say Muslims make up an increasing number of their customers.
Participants in Kosherfest 2003 in New York on Tuesday and Wednesday said kosher food, specially prepared to meet Jewish dietary laws, often also met the needs of pork-free Muslim diets.
“We have been told by supermarkets that there is an increasing interest from the Muslim community,” said Menachem Lubinsky, president of festival sponsor IMC Events and Exhibitions.
By buying kosher food, aren’t these Muslims aiding the Jewish conspiracy to control the world?
