Kippah: Chief Rabbinate Inspectors Caught Non-Kosher Meat at a "Kosher" Restaurant in Ashqelon
Yonatan Orich, 13 Ellul 5773 / 19 August, 2013
The Kashruth supervisor at the Vista restaurant on Delilah Beach revoked the restaurant's kashruth certificate, after the owner was caught selling non-kosher meat as "kosher" to its customers....

Esser Agaroth (2¢):
So, this inspector did his job? Yep. He sure did.
Now, we have to wait and see what the consequences of the performance of his duties properly will be.
Consequences? That's right. Consequences.
As the saying goes, "No good turn goes
Remember when the Chief Rabbinate in Ashdod refused to give a te'udah (certificate) to a bakery owned by an apostate?
What about when the Chief Rabbinate refused to give a te'udah to a a meat company which froze the meat before melihah (salting)?
And, finally, who could forget what happened when there was a disagreement between to major rabbis regarding the conversion process and the kashruth (fitness) of certain rabbinical courts for conversion?
In each and everyone of these cases the secular State of Israel Justice system told, instructed, or commanded rabbis to follow the courts' rulings. The questions of whether these rulings were in the least bit connected to Torah, and whether these courts were even remotely "kosher" to make such rulings or to order Torah scholars around were never addressed.
Why? Because not only could the courts care less about Torah. The Israeli Justice System finds the Torah to be a threat to its authority.
Out of fear and desperation, it is attempting to chip away at it, hoping one day to destroy it, or to facilitate its "creative interpretation" to such a point of unrecognizablity, that it would be as good as destroyed. May God forbid!
And so, what do you suppose with happen to this rabbi, the one who did his job?
Will, he, and by extension, the Rabbinate be accused of discriminating against the individual's citizen's "right" to define kashruth for him or herself?
Will the Rabbinate be forced to compensate this restaurant for loss of business, because it caught the owner lying and cheating?
Better yet, will the Rabbinate be sued for the violation of the owner's "freedom of religious expression," or some other "democratic" crap like that?
