Whole Foods bills themselves as the worlds largest retailer of organic foods with 279 retail outlets in Canada, the US and United Kingdom. According to their website they're Greener than anything Obama or Al Gore can dream of accomplishing.. They get their produce from local organic farmers who they help out with loans when the farmers need help..
Now admittedly I'm not big on veggie's to begin with, organic or otherwise So far no on has been able to make green energy viable and almost daily more "settled' Climate Change Science gets proven not to be so settled, and some of it's been proven to be absolute fraud.. But, if other people want to, why should I care?
In short the company is as politically correct as possible...
It annoys the hell me because many of those other people are the same ones that mock the Christian and Jewish religion.. You can't buy a Christmas Ham anymore-- you can buy a Holiday Ham. Retailers by and large have decided too many people get offended by Christian Holidays so they avoid mentioning them by name..or even allow their employees to wish someone a Merry Christmas...
Whole foods has no such reservations, if the holiday is Muslim.. they recently ran these two promotional blogs on their website...
Preparing for Ramadan
Yvonne Maffei is a food writer, recipe developer and publisher of www.MyHalalKitchen.com, a blog showcasing culinary tips and healthy halal recipes. Throughout the month of Ramadan she’ll be hosting giveaways for Whole Foods Market gift cards and Sa
ffron Road coupons on her blog. Here, Yvonne shares the purpose and traditions of Ramadan and how she celebrates this holy month.
Ramadan is fast approaching, and I’m getting my kitchen ready for a month of celebration with my family and community. In case you’re not familiar with Ramadan, it is an incredibly important holy month for Muslims. For us, it is a time of reflection — a time to develop compassion for those who live with hunger and thirst as a way of life, and to do something to help them. It’s a time to practice self-control and willpower in the face of numerous temptations; and to purify one’s self by taking time to focus on character and purpose.
Have you heard of halal? If so, you can skip ahead to the end and enter to win coupons for some tasty, convenient halal-certified prepared foods from Saffron Road. But if you’re scratching your head and asking, “What is this halal about?” Read on!
Halal is Islamic dietary law that applies, among other things, to meat and poultry, specifically prescribing certain slaughtering and processing practices. Like some other religious dietary practice, halal prohibits pork and alcohol consumption. In order to provide more options to people following a halal diet, Saffron Road has created the first line of certified halal frozen entrees and they’re currently only available here at Whole Foods Market.
Not surprisingly for the politically correct, and America's President, it's inappropriate to suggest anything that might support a Judea-Christian message of any sort.. but for some reason the PC crowd seems to live Islam- even with it's treatment of women, opposition to homosexuality, continuing practice of slavery and all the other things they claim to hate so much, including the absolute control of Government by the religion.
Maybe the answer is they love Islam because Islam hates Christians and Jews.
Ever wonder what would happen if someone a little outspoken took offense at the left's blatant support of a religion like Islam while failing to even acknowledge a religion she strongly believes in.... Someone who is as vocal about her love for America and Israel, as she is determined to expose the crimes Islam is responsible for...

Meet Debbie Schlussel, I'm going to introduce and get out of the way.... she's too tough an act for me to follow, so read her blog, and come back by and tell me what you think
The American Muslim world, the anti-Semitic and phony ADL, and left-wing media and blogosphere (including crackpot turncoat Charles Johnson) are upset that I posted aboutanti-Israel Whole Foods’ Ramadan promotion, and as a result of my post Whole Foodsappears–appears!–to have caved. But that’s not really what’s going on. Don’t believe the hype.
As I reported to you over a week ago, Whole Foods is the first national supermarket chain to do Ramadan promotions. But the promotions were never going to be in store promotions, only online.
No in-store promotions for the campaign are planned, instead, in an apparent attempt to test the waters, the promotion will start online. The “campaign focuses on reaching Muslim consumers online.
There were never going to be in-store promotions because Whole Foods is cowardly and wanted to hide its Ramadan celebration from even its liberal, progressive, wealthy White clientele, some of whom might (might!) be turned off because they are phonies and hypocrites just like Whole Foods execs are. Now, a left-wing free newspaper (I call ‘em “pimp and ho newspapers,” because they make most of their money from “escort” and strip club ads and classifieds),
