Campbell’s Soup quietly put a Halal mark on cans of its soup that meet Islamic dietary requirements—and now there’s a Facebook group urging the world to boycott. The group, currently boasting 3,275 members, claims Campbell’s is using the mark “under the auspices of the Islamic Society of North America, a Wahhabi-funded racket that is said to have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.” (The Brotherhood, reports The Stir, is a terrorist group said to be even larger than al-Qaeda, while the Islamic Society of North America is simply a non-profit and non-political Islamic organization.)
