They are in prison not in a restaraunt. They want kosher then let them pay for it. That is the price that you pay for breaking the law.

The Jews that do not believe in Jesus don't "pay" for kosher, nor do the Muslims. That is exactly the discrimination they are complaining about. If you are Jewish and believe in Jesus, then you are less than any other "law breaker". The Wiccan's get special treament and the Pagans too. But not the believing Jew. Anti-semitism is frowned on but I guess if your a believing Jew your are not Semitic?
It is descrimination

Full stop. Why should a muslim get halal meat and a messianic jew be denied kosher food. Not right at all.

Meals in prison are so severly rationed that a full grown male who weighs 200 lbs only recieves 1200 calories? This is a disguised way of not feeding inmates under the heart smart program which should be labeled as how to not feed people who are being held against their will. SO...yes I believe the jew who believes in Jesus should get the food he needs to support his faith since all the muslims caused the food to go to worse than ever. What makes the muslim recieve special food when they are the cause of most of the world problems we now face.......
