Yahoo! News ^ | 5/29/14 | Karen Lo

For his Parts Unknown visit to Israel, adventuresome chef Anthony Bourdain has been honored with the Voices of Courage and Conscience in Media award from the U.S. Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). It was the chef’s first time in Israel, and he visited Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza.

In his own words: “By the end of this hour, I’ll be seen by many as a terrorist sympathizer, a Zionist tool, a self-hating Jew, an apologist for American imperialism, an Orientalist, socialist, a fascist, CIA agent, and worse.”

Nah, you're just a pompous boor.

“I’ve never been in a synagogue. I don’t believe in a higher power,” he told viewers. “But that doesn’t make me any less Jewish, I don’t think

Haven't seen the show, so I can't comment. And no, when you have a Catholic mom and French Jewish pop, neither religious, no, never going into a Synagogue doesn't make you less Jewish, since you weren't to start with.

Celebrities inventing themselves as Jewish is a bit old.

I seem to remember he blasted Reagan in an episode filmed somewhere in Latin or Central America, maybe Nicaragua.

You’re right. He flatters himself.

Always good to get the broken-down, East Coast douchebag perspective on geopolitics.

Why can’t he concentrate on turning out a decent coq au vin? Do you see Gordon Ramsey running all over troublesome countries trying to gin up trouble? I mean, aside from bad restaurants in Los Angeles and Arizona?

He did a Travel Channel show with Ted Nugent. Talk about two diametrically opposed perspectives! But Ted let him shoot some of his automatic weapons, they had BBQs and beers, and Bourdain MAY have lost some of his Eastern douchebaggery ... at least for a while. It was a good show.

Anthony, you have let me down.

I am seriously disappointed. I will no longer watch you get stoned in Amsterdam and eat God knows what in other places.. You’re off the Hulu list, dude!!

I have always been suspicious of the earring.

Sorry, guys, I just despise earrings on men, unless they are pirates. Even then, not a bog fan.

I saw that one and actually had a moment of appreciation for Bourdain being willing to admit he enjoyed it. Unfortunately, he seems to be regressing.

"He did a Travel Channel show with Ted Nugent. Talk about two diametrically opposed perspectives! But Ted let him shoot some of his automatic weapons, they had BBQs and beers"

I saw that episode. Uncle Ted let Tony shoot a full auto something and he actually enjoyed it. Made him feel macho (he said he never shot anything before - typical eastern mega-lib).

He gets an award from the jihadis.

That makes him their flunky as well as a junky.

Flunky, junky, there’s probably a new show in that. I’m going to have to try to see these shows out of curiosity, though who knows when.

Watching Bourdain’s new show on Thailand.

Sure I hate the guy, I hate him because I want his job.

It aint because he is a muslim terrorist.

If you have never had Larb/Laab you are missing life.

It was a pretty good episode really. Showed the pluses and minuses on both sides and gave a pretty good view of how they continue to make sure the other side is the enemy and most of the people are really just caught in the middle. Not as good as his eps without a message, but the message wasn’t one sided or simplistic.

Green papaya salad is amazing, but the origins may be Lao.
