We as in israeli born charedim who grew up here and know the hacsherim here.
we might trust ou for imported american products but not necessarily for israeli restaurants.
bby is not regarded as a good hecsher for meat, for chicken it might be.

If it wasn't sefardi it would be treated in a completely different manner. Ask your rabbonim why you can't eat it, and please relay the answers. BTW, IMO Machpoud, especially recently, can't be regarded as a top hechsher. BBY would actually rate higher.
MY rabbi is also my dad who dosent know a thing about politics. we dont eat bby on meat becuse he holds it isnt good.

As they say, to each their own, as long as they're consulting their LOR.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

You're basically inviting me to start a never ending wiki war, even if I wouldn't add BBY to the list
