Some Campbell’s soups get halal-certified, people go nuts
This could be something out of the Twilight Zone, because we’re pretty sure it’s not an elaborate piece of performance art left over from Nuit Blanche. Campbell’s of Canada went out of its way to get some of its soups certified as halal—that is, to comply with Muslim dietary laws—and a bunch of people are protesting the move. There’s now a Facebook group calling for a boycott of Campbell’s Soup because it “supports The Muslim Brotherhood.” As of right now, 2,343 people “like” this.
This soup controversy comes hot on the heels of the U.K. firestorm over how some supermarkets were selling halal meat without labeling it as such. The reaction was similar in that customers complained that accommodating Muslims in this way was a bridge too far.
So, to recap:
1) Label food as halal? Intolerable, dhimmitude, boycott.
2) Don’t label food as halal? Intolerable, boycott.
