British supermarket apologizes for removal of kosher food

( The British supermarket chain Sainsbury’s apologized Monday for removing kosher food from the shelves of a London store over the weekend. A manager at the Sainsbury’s Holborn branch in central London initially made the decision out of fear of looting and violence by anti-Israel protesters. But not all of the kosher foods sold at the store were made in Israel, and the decision garnered backlash. Former Tory party MP Louise Mench tweeted, “Dear @Sainsburys kosher is JEWISH food. Israel is a COUNTRY. How DARE YOU equate Jews’ food to ISRAEL, how dare you #EverydayAntisemitism.” Sainsbury’s said on its website that “The decision was taken in one store only to move these chilled products to cold storage elsewhere in that store for a short period on Saturday as a precautionary measure during a demonstration close by.”
