A Palestinian TV show is claiming that Israel is stealing Palestinian heritage as its own.

In a clip on “Palestine This Morning,” aired first in January but shared last week by Palestinian Media Watch with English subtitles,  Master Chef Samer Abu Jum’a, director of the Al-Sham Lands Master, tells the reporter the importance of a local food festival: “We want to instill knowledge in the young people about the Palestinian cuisine, and to give them a new vision of our Palestinian dishes.”
The reporter asks, “What was your impression of the Western world, given that the occupation is attempting to Judaize our dishes and attribute them to its truly fake identity?

“Tell me how we can spread the Palestinian dishes more and fight the evil assault on our Palestinian heritage and on the Palestinian dishes, which the occupation is of course attempting to attribute to itself,” she continues.

Abu Jum’a: “Let’s not forget to protect them from Judaization and the evil assault against us, and the theft of Palestinian dishes. A number of dishes have been stolen.”
