"We wanted to try to show the falafel taste in London. There are Israeli restaurants in London that claim they are the originator of falafel. The whole idea of the project led to complications because we had to explain why Israel wants to claim such a belonging to the land," Sansour said.
Its so utterly despicable, there isn't one thing the Israeli's haven't laid their hands upon and claimed it to be theirs in Arab world. They're trying to convince people that there was nothing ever such a thing as Palestine and that the Palestinians were just fishmen, but how dare you question the Israeli actions!? Don't you understand Zionism is for peace? But it also involves expanding their borders every day secretively.
Countries all over Europe including the USA condemn some acts of Israeli as being atrocious but never do anything about it, one second they yell out silently at Israel and the next they're signing billions of Euros over to them. Boycott this country God damn it!! What happened to this world? The ignorance around the world is eating the oppressed countries inside out and we buy into everything the newscast tell the cameraman to point his camera at.
America and Israel are for liberalism and freedom of speech but if you ever open your mouth to say anything not in their favour you are a terrorist. The Gaza flotilla was not terrorism and it was entirely justified how can you not understand this guys? Didn't you read about the INTERNAL investigation made?
We might as well give the rapist the job to judge himself of being guilty or not and whether we should sentence him or not...AND DO NOT QUESTION HIM.
Israel has broken more UN resolutions than the whole middle east put together, and you think there isn't something fishy going on here?
How can you be shocked when you hear of a Palestinian blowing himself up to kill Israeli soldiers or civilians when his mother, father, daughter, son, brother, sister, neighbour and just about everyone he knows are dying of hunger and of sniper bullets. He is going to be full of hatred towards every Israeli and when the whole population is in despair because of the world turning their other cheek I can only understand it to be in full honesty.
Inb4 "it is just falafel, what is the big fuss?" It is not just about Falafel and if you cannot see that and see the substance behind this then go ahead and continue being ignorant but keep in mind you cannot be an ignorant little half-wit forever.
"It was never about establishing falafel's origins. This project is very much about a foreign culture coming in and colonising the culture of the Arabs,"
The only news that would publish something like this.
