Topic: What Annoys you? 1 minute ago #9280238        

@EnglishCheeseMan On another Israel related issue. Why is Lebanon claiming that Israel stole Lebanese cuisine as it own?

In October 2008, the Association of Lebanese Industrialists petitioned to the Lebanese Ministry of Economy and Trade to request protected status from the European Commission for hummus as a uniquely Lebanese food, similar to the Protected Geographical Status rights held over regional food items by various European Union countries.[34][35][36]

Fadi Abboud, president of the Lebanese Industrialists Association, stated that "Israelis have usurped several Lebanese and oriental products". According to Abboud, Lebanon exported the first hummus dish in 1959.

As a response, food critic Janna Gur wrote: "The success of certain brands of Israeli hummus abroad may have been what brought about Abboud's anger", leading him to claim that Israel has been "stealing" their country's national dishes, like hummus, falafel, tabbouleh, and baba ghanoush.

Also in response to Abboud's statement, Shooky Galili, an Israeli journalist specialising in food and who writes a blog dedicated to hummus, said that "trying to make a copyright claim over hummus is like claiming for the rights to bread or wine. [...] Hummus is a centuries old Arab dish — nobody owns it, it belongs to the region".

As of late 2009, the Lebanese Industrialists Association was still "preparing documents and proof" to support its claim.

Apparently, hummus, falafel, tabbouleh, and baba ghanoush are Arab intellectual property and not for Jews/Israelis to use or profit from according to Lebanon.

@ProudSwede
Maybe it's just a phase. Or just a one episode thing.
