    Seeking an end to the debate over BDS, grocery’s board sets a vote for March 27.Like many of those she knows at the Park Slope Food Co-op, Barbara Mazor has never been an “overly” political person. “I’ve supported things” in the past, she says, adding that she and her husband send money every year to Stand With Us, the pro-Israel advocacy group, and attend the annual Salute to Israel Parade, “but I’ve never spearheaded or led anything before.” That changed for Mazor last spring as a three-year debate over a proposed boycott of Israeli products at the co-op heated up...

    The adolescents in this video aren't morally serious. Being anti-Israel is just a fun hobby for them -- it's the 21st century way to act out against their parents and society, like going to a Ban the Bomb rally was in the 1970s. They have no idea what life is like in Israel, the Palestinian territories or Muslim or Arab nations. Perhaps they missed it when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told Columbia University students that there are no gays in Iran. But he wasn't lying -- because when he finds a homosexual in Iran, he stones them to death.

    PRINCETON, N.J. -- Princeton University students voted down a referendum by a pro-Palestine student group calling for the Ivy League university to expand its hummus offerings, the school's student government said Friday. It was a quirky campus vote about a chickpea dip that delved into international relations. The student group Princeton Committee for Palestine wanted university-run stores to sell an additional brand, arguing that Sabra, the only brand currently offered, supports human rights abuses. Sabra is based in Queens, N.Y., and Richmond, Va. Company officials say the firm makes donations only to charities in North America - and not to...

    BEIRUT, Lebanon, - War between Lebanon and Israel is being waged, not with guns or butter, but with tahini, as they vie to create the world's largest hummus dish, observers say. Lebanon set the record Saturday for the creation of the largest plate of hummus. About 300 Lebanese chefs in a village about 5 miles east of Beirut came up with a dish weighing 11.5 tons. That's 23,042 pounds of a combination of chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice and olive oil, CNN reported. On the surface the competition is good-natured, but as with everything in the region, there is an underlying...

    A restaurant in Israel has claimed the world record for the largest plate of hummus, beating a record set in Lebanon last year. The four tonnes of the chickpea dip mashed up by 50 chefs in Abu Gosh, west of Jerusalem, almost doubles the Guinness World Record set in Beirut two months ago. The rivalry between Israel and Lebanon over hummus taps into a deep-seated animosity. It's not that spicy, it's not that salty - in fact, hummus does not really have that much flavour at all.

    If there is one thing that you can find wherever you go in the Middle East - Jerusalem, Gaza, Beirut or Cairo - it is hummus, that mashed-up festival of chickpeas, olive oil, sesame paste, lemon juice and garlic. It should be touching - a food that unites. But the Middle East is a place where passions are quick to ignite. And so, where there is hummus, there is also intense rivalry - over who has the best recipe, over who invented it, and over who can make the biggest bowl of it. Last year, Israeli chefs came up with...

    The latest conflict simmering between Lebanon and Israel is all about food: Lebanese businessmen accusing Israel of stealing traditional Middle Eastern dishes like hummus. Fadi Abboud, president of the Lebanese Industrialists Association, said Tuesday his group plans to sue Israel to stop it from marketing hummus and other regional dishes as Israeli. "It is not enough they (Israelis) are stealing our land. They are also stealing our civilization and our cuisine," said Abboud. He said his group also seeks to claim the eggplant spread baba ghannouj and tabbouleh, a salad made of chopped parsley and tomatoes, as Lebanon's own. Hummus...

    CHICAGO (AP) - Mark Smith is convinced he can turn a generation of junk-food eaters into die-hard devotees of what he calls "the salsa of this decade." The dynamo treat? Single-serve portions of hummus and it may be coming to a school cafeteria near you. As the federal government prepares to raise standards for food served in schools, vendors like Smith are rolling out healthier versions of lunchroom favorites. Now there are whole-grain pizzas and baked chicken nuggets, along with new offerings like hummus. It's all part of an uphill—and so far losing—battle to slow rising obesity rates. Government rules,...

    BAGHDAD -- U.S. soldiers sifting through the rubble of a bombed-out Baghdad restaurant have found compelling new evidence that Saddam Hussein was killed in a Coalition air raid: They've recovered what appears to be the remnants of the brutal dictator's trademark bushy mustache! The scorched whiskers were reportedly uncovered in the ruins of the al-Sa'ah Restaurant, which was destroyed in an air strike on April 7 after U.S. intelligence received word that the Iraqi strongman was dining there. "We are 95 percent sure that this is Saddam's mustache," declares a military source who requested anonymity. "If DNA tests confirm that,...
