Ahmed or is it Ahmad and who really cares wrote

> I didn't mean to say hummus is Arab, per se.

Really?then why did you select hummus as your example and why not this horrid soup called tarid?

> What I meant to say is that the modern day Israeli eats a lot of Mideast/Mediterranean,

And why are you surprised?

>and that's what you'll see being passed off as Israeli food at an Israeli restaurant.

Could it be because it is really Israeli food? Well if you go to a Pakistani restaurant the food will be very close to what you will find in an Indian restaurant so again why are you surpirsed?

>BTW, you are so wrong on Pakistan :-) Nice try,

Really?Pakiland? And why is the self hate?

>I'm sure the Ahmad spelling threw you off.
