1 a: a charge usually of money imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes
b: a sum levied on members of an organization to defray expenses
2: a heavy demand
It is a cost, that many companies have admitted they impose on the general population to make certain foods kosher for a very small percentage of the population. This "tax" is paid to certain organizations for their "seal of approval" which they can then display on their product. An extremely small percentage of the populace cares for, or knows about, these Kosher "expenses". Once you find out that you are paying any amount for something that you do not know about, nor is there any follow up to how the funds are handled.... you become a bit weary. Why should I pay for a product to be Kosher, since I do not use or care for Kosher products? How is this fair and Democratic? Why don't those who want Kosher products pay the premium themselves? Any time someone questions something in regard to Zionist or Jewish actions, they are IMMEDIATELY labeled Anti Semetic or racist. That's quite retarded.
If Israel answers to international bodies, why have they not dismantled their illegal occupation of Palestine and their illegal establishment of "settlements" aka OCCUPIED ZONES as per many attempts by the UN which were all vetoed by the US??? They have been called on numerous times to do so with no result.
If Israel answers to lots, namely the international community (that just sounds so intelligent)... then why have they not ever established that they are in possession of nuclear warheads and WMD's? We already know they have them, why not just make it official?
By contrast, not once in Israelís 22-year occupation of southern Lebanon between 1978 and 2000, which took place in defiance of no less than 10 UN Security Council resolutions, did Congress ever go on record condemning Israelís actions or even referring to it as an illegal occupation that it was.
How about some more violations of the UN????

Maybe not your favourite news source, but I dare you to try and discount any of the Resolutions above as being fake or invalid.
More reading, but you dont care because you're not biased nor racist
You still havent answered:
Israel slaughters Palestinian people and steals their land. Israel is not a signatory to the NPT. Israel has stockpiled nuclear weapons, and WMD's. Israel is keeping hundreds, if not thousands of prisoners illegally. Israel does not allow running water into Palestinian areas for more than a few hours a day, but they have swimming pools in "settlements". Israel has built and is illegally building "settlements" (aka occupation) on Palestinian lands, against the Geneva Convention.
Did I miss anything? I think I answered all your questions, you still missed most of mine. The question is, will you actually be man enough to answer my questions truthfully??????
