I was watching tv when this came up:
"Lebanese score in hummus war with Israel. Lebanese chefs prepared a massive plate of hummus weighing over two tons Saturday that broke a world record organizers said was previously held by Israel — a bid to reaffirm proprietorship over the popular Middle Eastern dip. Lebanese businessmen accuse Israel of stealing a host of traditional Middle Eastern dishes, particularly hummus, and marketing them worldwide as Israeli."
Honestly, I thought this the silliest thing ever. I was wondering if this is the only thing that Israel has stolen from Arabs. Maybe this is the only war we can win!! I find this ridiculous. It would have been better to cook all that food, which will most likely go to waste before being eaten, and give it to needy and poor people in Arab countries!!
