meat-pleasantInspectors have succeeded in confiscating 700 kilograms (1,540 LBS) of illegal meat originating in PA (Palestinian Authority) autonomous areas, on its way to the Israeli marketplace.

A truck carrying the tainted treif meat was stopped at Charish Junction, with health inspectors reporting it originated in the PA village of Barta’a.

Once again, B’chasdei Hashem treif and diseased meat was prevented from infiltrating the marketplace. The same occurs with illegal eggs from PA areas and at times, vegetables with unacceptably high levels of Echoli, the result of irrigation in sewage water.

It has been learned the meat was sent to the PA by Argentina and Brazil as a humanitarian gesture for PA residents. It was stolen and making its way to the Israeli marketplace under the guise of a kosher eatable product.

    In Dani Brener’s brief news blurb about this in today’s Yisrael Hayom (pg. 07) he cites the amount as 1,500 kilos. Clerks in the PA stole the meat before it could get to its intended recipients (needy PA residents) and redirected it to Israeli Arabs, who repackaged it as kosher and were trying to sell it in Israel when it was discovered.
