…food represents so much more than blind consumption. Food is what unites us. It brings us closer to our loved ones through gatherings, and sharing secret recipes that lasted generations. Food is a happy occasion.

Sadly, food is also political, particularly for the Palestinians. This has become abundantly clear as Israel continues its cultural genocide of Palestine through the theft of food culture.

Obliterating Palestinians’ culture by Fawaz Turki

Please TAKE ACTION RIGHT NOW and send your letter to the UN Office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the International Criminal Court Prosecutor.

Hummus-ide: ‘After Palestinian land, Israel now covets its food & culture’ on RT

The reality is that Israel has not been satisfied with just taking the Palestinians’ land, but has also for many years been appropriating Palestinian culture – including Palestinian food – and relabeling it as Israeli food. I’m talking about things like falafel, tabbouleh, hummus and other foods that are really Arab and Palestinian foods.

So, it’s very appropriate for a restaurant to do that relabeling, and say that, in fact, these are Palestinian foods, these are Arab foods, and not fall in line with this attempt at cultural appropriation on the part of the state of Israel.

Texas: Israel Block Party sparks annual protest

While more than a thousand students came to celebrate Israeli culture at the Israel Block Party on the East Mall, dozens protested the party from feet away… “Our biggest goal is to send a specific message [and] express exactly what we feel the block party is doing, which is a propaganda event which hides a very heinous reality of cultural appropriation and genocide,” Khan said.
