"Kosher Nostra Scam"
on the American Consumer
La Voz de Aztlan
One of the major unspoken reasons for Anti-Semitism in the business
world is the kosher tax. Back in the 1980s, I used to be a well
known business broker in New York City. What I know is worse than
this essay. Someday I will tell the full story about the kosher
tax, that we are all forced to pay.
The "Kosher Nostra
Scam" on the American Consumer
Los Angeles, Alta California - - (ACN) La Voz de Aztlan receives
quite a few "news tips" per week from our many subscribers
and readers. Some we dismiss immediately but a very few catch our
attention. Last week we receive an e-mail asking us if we knew the
significance of the small encircled letter "U" or letter
"K" that can be found printed on many food cans, food
packages and on other kitchen products. The message gave us some
clues and suggested that we do some research into the subject. What
we found certainly was "news" to us and it both shocked
and angered us.
On arriving at my residence, I immediately went to the pantry to
verify that what I had just learned was actually true. Sure enough,
most of the packaged and canned foods from major companies, like
Proctor & Gamble and others, did have the (U), the (K) or other
similar markings. The Arrowhead water bottle, the instant Folgers
Coffee, the Kelloggs box, the Jiff Peanut Butter, the Pepper container,
the Trader Joe's tea box and even the Glads plastic sandwich bags
carton had the (U) or (K) mark on them.
We needed a little more verification so we called two major companies
to asked some questions. We chose Proctor & Gamble that markets
the Folgers Coffee and the Clorox Company that manufactures the
Glads plastic zip lock sandwich bags. Each of the two companies,
as well as most others, have 1-800 telephone numbers printed on
their packages for consumers to call in case they have any questions
about their products. When we asked the Proctor & Gamble representative
what the (U) meant on their Folgers Coffee container, she asked
us to wait until she consulted with her supervisor. She came back
and informed us that the mark meant that the coffee was " certified
kosher". We than asked her how and who certified the coffee
to be "kosher" and whether it cost any money to do so.
She refused to answer these and other questions. She suggested that
we write to their Corporate Public Affairs Department. We than called
the Clorox Corporation to ask what the (U) meant on the package
of their Glads plastic sandwich bags and she also said that the
(U) meant that the plastic bags were "kosher" but refused
to answer questions concerning payments the Clorox Corporation has
to make in order to be able to print the (U) on their products.
What we learned next, pretty much floored me personally. I learned
that major food companies throughout America actually pay a Jewish
Tax amounting to hundreds of million of dollars per year in order
to receive protection. This hidden tax gets passed, of course, to
all non-Jewish consumers of the products. The scam is to coerce
the companies to pay up or suffer the consequences of a Jewish boycott.
Jewish consumers have learned not to buy any kitchen product that
does not have the (U) the (K) and other similar markings.
Another shocker was learning who is actually behind these sophisticated
"Kosher Nostra Scams." It turns out that the perpetrators
of these elaborate extortion schemes are actually Rabbinical Councils
that are set up, not just in the U.S. but in other western countries
as well. For example, the largest payola operation in the U.S. is
run by those who license the (U) symbol. The (U) symbol provides
protection for many products sold here in Aztlan and in the United
States. This symbol is managed by the The Union of Orthodox Jewish
Congregations with headquarters at 333 Seventh Avenue in New York
The scam works like a well oiled machine and is now generating
vast amounts of funds, some of which are being utilized by the Union
of Orthodox Rabbis to support the Ariel Sharon Zionist government
in Israel. The website of the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations
is full of pro-Israel and anti-Palestinian propaganda.
The "Kosher Nostra" protection racket starts when an
Orthodox Rabbi approaches a company to warn the owners that unless
their product is certified as kosher, or "fit for a Jew to
eat", they will face a boycott by every Jew in America. Most,
if not all of the food companies, succumb to the blackmail because
of fear of the Jewish dominated media and a boycott that may eventually
culminate in bankruptcy. Also, the food companies know that the
cost can be passed on to the consumer anyway. The food companies
have kept secret from the general consumer the meaning of the (U)
and the amount of money they have to pay the Jewish Rabbis.
It is estimated that the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations,
which manages the (U) symbol protection racket, controls about 85%
of the "Kosher Nostra " certification business. They now
employ about 1200 Rabbi agents that are spread through out the U.S.
Food companies must first pay an exorbitant application fee and
than a large annual fee for the use of the (U) copyright symbol.
Secondly, the companies must pay separate fees each time a team
of Rabbis shows up to "inspect" the company's operations.
Certain food companies are required to hire Rabbis full time at
very lucrative salaries.
The amount of money that the non-Jewish consumer has paid the food
companies to make up for the hidden Jewish Tax is unknown, but it
is estimated to be in the billions since the scam first started.
The Orthodox Jewish Councils as well as the food companies keep
the amount of the fees very secret. The Jewish owned Wall Street
Journal wrote about the problem many years ago, but they have stopped
writing about it now.
Only public awareness concerning the "Kosher Nostra Scam"
will eventually help stop this swindle of the American consumer.
Public education of the scam may lead to an eventual non-Jewish
boycott of all products with the (U), (K) or other Jewish protection
symbols. I certainly do not need to pay extra for "kosher water",
"kosher coffee" or "kosher plastic sandwich bags".
In fact, I demand my money back for all the money I had to pay over
the years for the hidden and illegal Jewish Tax. Are there any bright
attorneys out there that could bring a class action suit against
the Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations on behalf of the citizens
of Aztlan and other non-Jewish people?
