NO WAR FOR CHICKPEAS!

Life imitates Zohan. From the AP:
"It is not enough they (Israelis) are stealing our land. They are also stealing our civilization and our cuisine," said [Fadi Abboud, president of the Lebanese Industrialists Association]...

He said his group... seeks to claim [hummus,] the eggplant spread baba ghannouj and tabbouleh, a salad made of chopped parsley and tomatoes, as Lebanon's own.
The headline? Hummus War Looms Between Lebanon and Israel.
