From the people who helped bring you the “Ground Zero Mosque” controversy come new allegations of Muslim “infiltration” linked to an organization hired to certify Campbell’s soup.
Conservative blogger Pamela Geller, who helped build opposition to a proposed Islamic center near the site of the 9/11 attacks, has begun a grassroots protest against the Campbell Soup Company over the group that it uses to label Halal certain varieties of soup for sale in Canada
Geller says she doesn’t oppose the company’s decision to label soups that conform to Islamic dietary rules, but says the company has employed a Muslim organization with terrorist ties to oversee the certification.
“I have no problem with labeling things Halal,” Geller, who founded “Stop Islamization of America”, told ABCNews.com. “The problem is that they went to [the Islamic Society of North America] for their designation, a named a co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation trial.”
ISNA was named an “unindicted co-conspirator” in a 2007 federal terror trial brought against the Holy Land Foundation, a Muslim charity located in Texas, which was convicted of funneling more than $12 million to Palestinian terror group Hamas.
In a statement, ISNA acknowledged being named a co-conspirator in the 2007 trial, but added, “the government admitted that its labeling of ISNA many years ago was nothing more than a legal tactic. Indeed, ISNA now has a very positive working relationship with the federal government.”
