British Jewish Crime Boss Sues Prison for Kosher Meals

An orthodox British Jew serving time in jail for trying to smuggle millions of dollars worth of cocaine is suing prison officials for discrimination by denying him kosher food, the London Sun reported.

Simon Price, 68, complained of “institutionalized anti-Semitism” and charged that although inmates are allowed to cook their own meals, he was given pots and pans that are used by non-Jewish inmates and come in contact with non-kosher food.

He also alleged that there are no Jewish texts in the prison library.

Price was sentenced to 35 years in jail in 2005 for the cocaine smuggling plot, and previously has served a prison term for a multi-million dollar robbery.

    Somehow, eating kosher food will be the least of this man’s worries…

  2. Bob Blum says:

    Sounds like a troublemaker just looking to make more trouble.

  3. Grace Acosta says:

    A Jew is still a Jew. Why compound his aveiros by making him eat treyf?

    He'll do his time, and hopefully do teshuvah too. Treyf food poisons your soul, and makes it harder for a person to recognize their wrongs and correct them.

    Would any of you be the first to stand there and force him to eat a ham and cheese sandwich? I doubt it.

  4. trust me if he were Moslem he would get Halal food.

  5. Anonymous says:

    Sorry but..It is ridiculous..to be a criminous is ok but to eat non-kosher food is wrong? Jesus was right about the hypocrisy of some orthodox jews…(I am not anti-Israel)…

  6. Shi Yuehan says:

    In my day he would have been lucky to get bread and water.

  7. Cody Flecker says:

    English food is bad enough. This Jewish prisoner is creating a great Mitzvah in demanding Kosher food. Eating non Kosher food will destroy your mind, as many Christians can attest to.
