A Palestinian reporter is complaining that Israel stole humus and falafel from her people. 
 
Speaking on official Palestinian Authority TV, in a video translated by Palestinian Media Watch, a reporter claims Israel has launched a “brutal attack on Palestinian heritage, including Palestinian foods.”
