and guys pls stop fighting, its just politics. we all cool!
not fighting, just pointing out an interesting article.    (a tad bid of sarcasm never hurt anybody)

"pre pesach" means it's only going to be geared towards pesach kashrus issues?

Every time you use a check you get a few points, if he's using lots of checks on his checking account you can accumulate a large amount of points. Out of curiosity what would that be worth?

Interesting post about news going around Israel.
http://lifeinisrael.blogspot.co.il/2013/02/is-eida-squeezing-its-food-producers.html
i know, very surprising that there should be another side to the story, but...
from ywn:
Responding to Israel Radio was Eida Chareidis spokesman Shmuel Peppenheim.

ISRAEL RADIO:

Why are so many mashgichim required?

EIDA:

I donít know where this farmer has gathered so many complaints. We employ one mashgiach at the level of the farms, for an entire district.

ISRAEL RADIO:

Yes but there are also mashgichim from the Chief Rabbinate. Why not rely on them?

EIDA:

Those wishing to rely upon the Chief Rabbinate may do so and that is absolutely fine. Badatz Eida Chareidis is a private hashgacha and those wishing our services must comply with our stringent standards. Yes, the law demands the Rabbinateís certification, and then they can use us if they wish or not. It is not compulsory. We are private.

Regarding the packing area our mashgiach works quite hard, despite that farmerís statements. It is not just growing fruit on a tree and after three years one can eat. Trees require work, pruning and other care for the farmerís good, and some of these issues do result in kashrus concerns. The mashgiach understands this things but the farmer may not. That is fine. The mashgiach does what he is responsible to do.

ISRAEL RADIO:

Farmer Netzer Shamir from a moshav in the Negev claims you guys disqualified 10 tons of lemons from his orchard that were over 3 years old.

EIDA:

We have no connection to that farmer. We deal with a middle man who markets produce from many areas. The Eida only uses a small amount of produce that which meets our stringent standard and we pay dearly for this.

ISRAEL RADIO:

Donít you think your standards are harming the livelihood of farmers?

EIDA:

Quite the contrary sir. We open many markets and doors for a farmer wishing to export and they earn more per ton of produce with us than they will without our hashgacha.

I donít believe that he had to destroy the lemons for if we do not use it the Chief Rabbinate would take it. Even if the Chief Rabbinate said it does not want it, then he can sell it abroad to the marketplace uninterested in kashrus. It is most unfortunate people like this farmer make such baseless allegations for the Eida would never compel him to destroy tons of lemons.

Up In The Air / Re: Is this legit?
« on: February 19, 2013, 03:02:39 AM »
Hi Please tell me if this sound legit or someone is pulling my leg
I sold a Chase United Club Pass.
I took it straight from a friend's Chase envelope.
The Buyer just sent me the following message:
This card number was already used. They (united) destroyed it in front of me at counter at LAX pres club. I'm not going to hassle to pursue refund or anything but wanted to let you know that it was pretty irritating and embarrassing.
I never heard of them checking and they always take it from you!
Furthermore this one was actually a clean card?
Anyone have a similar experience??

guys a scammer.  they try to make you feel bad for them...   don't fall for it

I've done business with him, I just don't really know how to ask him. I think YossiK is very close with him
what's the problem with asking him?  he does kashrus lectures at times.  just tell him there's a group of interested people etc etc   you dont have to tell him it's a ddf affair

Badly written.

In general can you try to write a bit neater? My eyes are hurting!
i don't feel the need to make bullet points, you seem to have done a fine job figuring it out on your own.
1. I looked through your threads up until Jan 31 and I haven't found a single helpful comment or any at all in any mileage thread from you either. כל הפוסל במומו פוסל
you looked through 1400 posts and didn't find any mileage thread comments ???     lol
2. I remember hearing from you (Not necessarily on the forums) the same or similar sentiments about other DDF members.
i don't know you, on or off the forums, so i have no clue what that means


LMAO once again. ;D ;D ;D

Even on this page I brought a source to something. It seems like you (and moish) have an auto alert whenever someone mentions the Eida.But of course, you never challenged me to bring a source to something specific, so of course there is nothing to bring a source to. Though, even with all your love of sources, you never bring one source or reason to defend your statement that the Eida would never do business with the Rabbanut.
i spend many hours a day around eida people.  i know their hashkafos and a bit of their politics.  no source, just personal experience.       

you brought a source to a random thing that noone argued about.  kal hakavod. clap clap.   now, maybe try bringing sources for the things actually under discussion, such as your opinions about the way the eida deals with kashrus, and that rubin deals with it the same etc etc          you know full well what we mean when we said you don't bring sources.  but, no, you like to avoid the point with lots of lols and lmaos and smileys and throw in a couple "trolls" and "stupid" and there ya go.          i'd be surprised if you're a day over 16.            grow up, and if you can back up your comments do so.  otherwise, just admit that it's no more than your own baseless emotional prattle.

@Yare,
It is unfortunate that whenever someone posts something about the Eida, that is unlike your grandfather and great grandfathers taught you (this kind of approach is kind of ceasing to exist already, mind you), you look at it as we are out here to bash them.
I have given you the leads to take further, and will not go into detail here, as I am indeed not out here to bash them like you think we all are, it's a thread to discuss kashrus, and I have chosen to which depth to discuss it to, and believe me, I have chosen a very light level.
#haterswillhate, does not really apply here, unless you just want to hear what you want to, which it seems like.
that's cute.  you spout off how horrible the eida is throwing out a couple words you heard on the street and then refuse to back anything you said, claiming some ridiculous claim about depth of discussion.     if you think anyone here believes that, they don't.     

Remember what you responded? I sure do! Nothing!- like anything else you were challenged on. You have absolutely no knowledge of kashrus,  while I and others have some. No, I'm not claiming to be a kashrus expert. But I am definitely not nearly as stupid as you are.

Go troll somewhere else.
and once again you have nothing intelligent to say.   no sources, just more mouthing off.   it's kind of funny actually, you have nothing to add to any mileage part of the mileage forums.  you just sit around trolling the kashrus thread, and then, even here, you never bring a source, just try to put down other people.   seems to me, you're the only idiot in this room.

The perfect description of your own posts on this thread so far. We still await something of substance from you.
kal ha'poisel, bi'mumo poisel.     

i actually don't claim to have a thorough knowledge of the kashrus industry; i do know a couple basic things though from living here 8 years.     you, on the other hand, are non-stop touting your supposed knowledge without ever bringing sources.   so, ya, as i once heard, we still await something of substance from you.

yup the eida's strawberries is a typical example, not of gauging but of simple bs. And their herring and  much more. A whole book can be written about what goes on there. But now that they managed to finally get their chief of staff out of the country and let them do whatever they want, Im sure the fun will start now. (although the gavad is still working on stopping this plan very soon)
instead of throwing out off the cuff statements as if you know something.  explain your positions.         explain what you claim to be the "bs strawberry problem" and the "herring and much more", and bring your sources for those opinions.   

otherwise you're just cluttering the thread.      or as dan likes to say, #haterswillhate.
