    Yup.

    It's just hard to get. A lot of restaurants and groceries in Israel are Kosher-conscious, and to comply you'd have to ban pork. Furthermore, of the ~20% of Israelis who aren't Jewish, about 80% of those are Muslim who also do not consume pork. While many Jews aren't the most religious and quite a few would be willing to consume it, few are willing to go out of their way to get it. It's only sold in certain shops that can do business without Kosher certification. If you want to find it, I'd look for communities that have high populations from the former Soviet block since they're likely not so religious and it was a part of their normal diet before they moved to Israel.

    Edit: Kosher restaurants do not serve pork no matter where they are. They'll lose their Kosher certification the instant it's discovered. Restaurants owned by Jews and/or frequented by Jews may serve it, but remember not all Jews keep Kosher.

    Yup! It sure is.

    It's an ayrab tradition.

    There Kosher routine dont allow them to wash bahind there ears, their crotch or even there underarms. Soap is plenty "not cheap"

    Here's what happened a coupla days ago when 2 jews tried to mingle with a bunch of white folks.

    American Airlines kicked a Michigan family off a plane in Florida on Wednesday night over what the airline said were complaints from other passengers about their jew body odor.

    Yossi Adler, his jew wife, Jennie, and their 19-month-old daughter were seated on a Miami-to-Detroit flight when ground crew asked them to step off the plane — and then the door closed behind them.

    "They said, 'Sir, people have complained that you have jew body odor,'"

    "The jew said, 'People from the ME use lots of spices and people from other Southeast Asian countries use lot of garlic which other funky smelling sheet'"

    Thats why they eat lotsa chikeens.

    Addressing your second question:

    Since pork is not kosher by definition why would it be served by a kosher restaurant anywhere?

    As per your first question: Yes, but considering that most people who live there are Jewish or Muslim, it is quite uncommon.

    Kosher reastauants don’t serve pork in the US, to do so is a violation of the laws pertaining to kosher food preparation.

    Pork is legal in Israel, however it is illegal to farm or slaughter pigs in Israel. Pork isn't kosher, so a kosher restaurant wouldn't serve it, in the U.S. or anywhere.
