LOL - I'm always amused and slightly apalled when I read one of these things advertising "when all sides finally sit down to discuss" x,y, and z and it includes only Orthodox Jews. especially given that the whole issue of the hechsher tzedek was raised by the Conservative movement.
What an appeasement to the US Govt., the unions, PETA, and all our enemies.
Neshama: not every single issue is appeasement...ethics are part and parcel of everything we do.
At a minimum, there's the issue of chilul hashem to keep in mind.
