The largest kosher meat processor in the US has caught violating not only US labor and immigration laws but none other than Yahweh's commandments! The meat processing plant that claimed that it was answering to a higher power may have had a Rabbi supervise the correct slaughter and production of kosher meat but the Iowa plant's Jewish owners forgot the Torah.
The social justice message of the Hebrew Scriptures stands as one of the most profound and eloquent defenses of human rights from ancient times to the present. The immigrant, the sojourner, is to be revered in light of the sacred memory that once the Israelite people were "strangers in a strange land." The weak and the defenseless are the community's responsibility and their protection is demanded by God's self! Israel's prophets warned those who dared abuse the vulnerable that they would pay a great price for their greed and arrogance.
Iowa civil authorities and Bush administration immigration officials announced that this was their greatest opportunity to protect true Americans from the immigrant and the Jew!
