Hummus War!


After Israel doubles Lebanon’s Guinness Record with four tons of chickpeas dish in one plate, Lebanese tourism minister vows to beat record with even bigger plate of hummus this spring.
The 2nd hummus war


Woohoo.. Israel wins~!
Now the Lebanese have their keffiahs in a bunch and accuse Israel of claiming to “invent” Hummus. ha.

What is Hummus y’all say?

Heck its yummy, that’s what it is: Made of smashed chickpeas, sesame paste, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. Mmmmmmmm.

Get some thick, tasty bread and dip dip dip~!


Never heard of a “food battle”?

Well, Europeans have been fightin’ over the origin of everything from champagne to feta cheese.
Who invented champagne in 1662?
It was invented in England by cider makers in Gloucestershire Devon.

French will tell you a French Monk Don perignon created champagne, but the English created it 20yrs before hand,by taking a bottle of french wine and adding suger ( creating the fermentation process) also English bottles were alot thicker and stronger so they didnt explode during the process.


Feta is Greek cheese; the rest are imitators.

Through just this one cheese, feta, or fetta (which translates to “slice” in Greek), offers its own slice of Greek history, a window into its storied past. Although there are varying interpretations of the history of feta, including that it may have originated in Italy rather than Greece, and that in fact the Bulgarians may have invented it, it is certain that feta-making began thousands of years ago and quickly became a staple in the Greek diet.

The “hummus” contest was all in good fun……..

But, but, but of course Arabs feel the need to fight fight fight!

Yup, we concede. This is a blatant violation of all the UN resolutions, and all international human rights treaties by Israel.

Let us call on the international community to press Israel to immediately freeze their illegal hummus making activities. Ha.bullyani-ddy

Speaking of Hummus…The IDF should make a 100 ton hummus bomb and drop it right on ham-ASS..but I digress ….

Hummus with falafel balls….ah yes.



No one knows who truly “invented” hummus truthfully.

But suppose the Arabs did invent Hummus. Guess what?..It’s just food. Um… Jews invented Monotheism. hit-mey113

Beat that dude.

Yea… Islam tried. They usurped all the Jewish prophets.

Have the audacity to claim that Abraham was Muslim. Ha.
That’s not even chronologically possible, but I digress…again.

They claim the Holy city of Jerusalem is theirs too.

But they insist on being the founders of “hummus.”. Uh huh.

Inna meantime, Jews will continue to invent and innovate in all important fields, like science, education, medicine, technology and um.. “culture”, something Muslims know NOTHING about.

Hey Arabs. I got an ideer. Instead of initiating a silly Food War…Why don’t you just um….. Get a life.

    You always make me so hungry with these food posts. Now I will have to go to the kitchen and cook up something…

    Mono Dude to Mono Angel,

    “ONE” is good when the concept is understood. Slice and dice is appropriate when culinary debates are more important than the true organic start. Hagar was a bond woman!

    Why won’t they just appreciate that the I AM is all about grace and mercy?

    But any way, I figger there is a plan to it all, so I will just stir the broth with; You are a Chick who makes me Pee my pants; after reading your hummusor looks into the food of WTF is she talking about. ;-)

    Feastingly yours,

    I hate to admit it, but the one good thing about all the Muslim countries I was in was the food. Kebaba, shwarma, all that stuff I don’t know the name of…

    Sounds like they eat similar stuff in Israel. Wouldn’t it be great if this were really all they fought over?

    BTW, did you know that they believe the jinns were evil spirits bottled up in lamps and sealed with hot tin by King Solomon himself?

  4. Christopher says:

    Ok, now I am really hungry!

  5. Matt says:

    Kind of silly to fight over hummus, isn’t it? How long before the contest is measured in kilotons or megatons? :D

  6. Ran / Si Vis Pacem says:

    Well, one of the keys to happiness is a good sens of hummus.

  7. proof says:

    Four tons of chickpeas??? That is one humongous hummus! Heh.

  8. frasypoo says:

    Love hummus!
    Now I have a craving for some!!!!

  9. KarL M says:

    At least this is a war with no casualties, other than the waistline..
    and there is a very good chance the O’bozo administration will not call for a freeze…
    it is a lot better heated!!!!!!!

  10. Pamela D. Hart says:

    Angel: I LOVE hummus! Another great post to make me hungry. You have such a flare with words and pics!

  11. Teresa Rice says:

    Awesome Post!! I love hummus. I think Hammas needs to get a life and stop harrassing the Israelis. I always enjoyed food fights where I worked.

  12. Nickie Goomba says:

    The Arabs might win a hummus war. But, a Holy War will prove to be a painful and humiliating defeat.

  13. Brooke says:

    Oh, man, does that look wonderful!

  14. cube says:

    If all the strife in the world could be settled by a food fight, it would be a messier world, yes, but far happier.

  15. Euro_Kafir says:

    Sorry to let hear another sound.
    The only thing that interested me in your photo stream, where the fries, and not with those bullet, but with decent pork….

  16. Ran / Si Vis Pacem says:

    By the way…
    Angel, speaking of Monotheism, you may enjoy Tikva Frymer-Kensky’s book “In the Wake of the Goddesses: Women, Culture and the Biblical Transformation of Pagan Myth”

    She speaks of the evolution of Ethical Monotheism and it’s role in establishing the moral foundations of Western culture, and why pagan cultures have largely been abandoned.

    (She doesn’t tackle one large, extant monolatric pagan culture… that’s out job, I s’pose.)

    Save some for me!!!!


  18. Snarky Basterd says:

    Holy, crap, Angel. Is there nothing Jews and Arabs can agree on? Okay, if not. I’ll lay down the law. Jews can keep hummus … and Arabs will have to wipe and eat with the same hand.

    It’s only fair, no?

  19. USpace says:

    Great post Angel, it’s so tasty too! It’s nice to see some light-hearted nationalist culinary competition in the MidEast too. I love hummus and falafals. :)

    Thanks for stopping by with the well wishes, I hope you are well. Please hang in there too.

    This made a good tweet:
    DELICIOUS! Israel and Lebanon’s Hummus War #food
    absurd thought -
    our Supreme God says

    with cooking competitions
    NOT by throwing food around

  22. Claudia says:

    Geee… well, it’s good that they just fight “foodly” as no one is going to get killed, except if they eat more than they actually can!!!

    Yes, these guys should get a life :roll:

  23. z says:

    The secret is ENOUGH LEMON (any other hummus need not apply!)
