i believe they dont eat pork for the same reason the muslims dont, pigs eat everything= pig dirt. dirty big= not pure to eat. interesting fact: pigs in the wild are extremely cleanI have to deal with some of them in my line of work, and I don't talk politics at all in the work environment, however French and specially Portuguese colleagues are doing a good job. I am a little bit ignorant in judaism I didn't know they don't eat pork too, so once a guy said he doesn't eat something because it contains pork, so a french guy asked him "so you go to heaven this way ? and the guy with M16 on the border of Gaza who does not eat pork but kills a palestinian child, goes to heaven as well ???!!!"
