Defintely Not-Kosher

This week there is a "Festival of Flavors" taking place in Jerusalem.

The Jerusalem Development Authority and the Jerusalem municipality invited the public to partake of an unprecedented culinary tourism event with the Old City Flavors Festival. For the first time ever, the gates of the four quarters of the Old City were opened in the evening and at night to reveal a wealth of unique, authentic restaurants along with music events, ethnic food markets, and arts and crafts fairs and workshops. The festival began on Sunday, March 27 and runs through Thursday, March 31, every evening between 18:00 and 23:00.

But the religious and hareidi elements of the city's populace is very upset at what they see as official sponsorhsip of non-Kosher food.

The wall posters I snapped today (the thrid one is published by Jerusalem's Chief Rabbinate; the others represent various Hareidi groups, the first two anonymous and the last, the official Eidah Hareidit):
