Bibi says that claims he ate treif are, well, not so kosher.
“I have never eaten non-kosher food,” Israeli Prime Minister Binyanin Netanyahu told Channel 2 television in an interview recorded before Yom Kippur. He was hinting that while he has sat in restaurants that serve treife food, he never ate the food himself.
Netanyahu, Arutz Sheva reported, insisted that he never eats treife food, and that this is true for himself as a private individual and not just in his official function. “I have kashrut supervisors at my side in this matter,” he said, apparently hinting at his wife, Sarah.
Some people had been upset, Arutz Sheva stated, after it was reported that Netanyahu had dined at a non-kosher restaurant in a dinner-date with casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. Sites were then doubly upset this past week when it was revealed that after dining on treif delicacies for lunch at Fresco by Scotto, a non-kosher Manhattan Italian restaurant, Netanyahu went to Manhattan lobster and crab joint Chart House.
