Israel beats Lebanon’s Hummus world Guinness record
the nerve …
We have no objection that other people do hummus but they should know that it is Lebanese. They (Israelis) should find a name other than ‘hummus’ because hummus is a Lebanese name,” Fadi Abboud, Lebanon’s tourism minister said.
Fady Jreissati, the Lebanese organizer of the previous Hummus Record in which Lebanon won said “Lebanon is trying to win a battle against Israel by registering this new Guinness World Record and telling the whole world that hummus is a Lebanese product, it’s part of our traditions“.
On Friday, a newscaster on Israel’s Army Radio referred to the hummus clash as the “third Lebanon war.”
The inner circle has related stories in which Israel is claiming Falafel as an Israeli Delicatessen. Also for the activist in you, Lebanon is to sue Israel for marketing Humus as it’s own.
… and let it be clear, Israelis know, and understand our predicament: Lebanese to Israel: Hands off our Hummus.
On more a reasonable approach, I’d like to see a World’s best “tasting” Hummus. I’m not sure I can handle lightly any other Hummus than the one I know.
