How fucking sad is this and what fools they were all made to look. Just read the comments below


Waitrose magazine includes Taste of Israel advert - and is hammered online for ignoring 'illegal occupation of Palestine'
32-page Taste of Israel insert was included in Waitrose Kitchen Magazine
Glossy advert included recipes and feature on the top restaurants in Israel
Activists claim the advert ignores what they claim is an 'apartheid regime'


A Waitrose magazine showcasing the food of Israel has been hammered online for ignoring what activists regard to be the 'illegal occupation of Palestine'.
The supermarket chain's monthly food magazine 'Waitrose Kitchen' contained a 32-page brochure called Taste of Israel.

The travel and food pull-out, in the February edition, contains an 'A-Z food glossary' of Israeli ingredients and dishes as well as a guide of its 'Top 10 restaurants'.

One Twitter said: 'It erases Palestinian history and culture' while others have asked why some of the foods in the magazine can be claimed by one nation.

What is a Palestinian? Palestine was the home of Jews and Arabs. The Jews had every right to call themselves Palestinians Do you knuckle heads not understand that. Do you even know pre 47 what made up the land then called Palestine? Well, do you. Well let me tell you it was made up of including Ancient Egyptians, Canaanites, Israelites, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Ancient Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, the Sunni Arab Caliphates, the Shia Fatimid Caliphate, Crusaders, Ayyubids, Mameluks, Mongols, Ottomans.

Please learn at least this little bit of history

Palestinians was a made up word by Yasser Arafat was Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), President of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA),and leader of the Fatah political party and former paramilitary group, which he founded in 1959. Originally opposed to Israel's existence, he modified his position in 1988 when he accepted UN Security Council Resolution 242. Arafat and his movement operated from several Arab countries. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Fatah faced off with Jordan in a brief civil war. Forced out of Jordan and into Lebanon. As you can see NO Arab country wanted him or his so called band of Palestinians.

After his death it was found his wife was living in Paris with billions of dollars stolen from funding for 'His People'....

I wonder if we would have had the same outcry if the feature had been on Russian cooking, given the occupation of half of Ukraine?
