JNS.org – Conflict Kitchen, a Pittsburgh snack bar that sells sandwiches wrapped in paper printed with pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel slogans, received a $50,000 grant from a foundation run by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s wife, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

The wrappers bearing the anti-Israel slogans also indicate that the take-out restaurant is supported in part by the Heinz Endowment, chaired by Teresa Heinz Kerry.

Conflict Kitchen, located near Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh, aims to use its menu to teach students about conflict between the U.S. and the countries it features in its cuisine selection. The information spread via the Palestinian food wrappers includes quotes defending terrorism against Israel. One wrapper reads, “How can you compare Israeli F-16s, which are some of the best military planes in the world, to a few hundred homemade rockets?”

Jewish actor and comedian Billy Crystal got the entire audience at the 75th annual Tony Awards in New York City...

Another reads, “Palestinians are not going to just let [Israel] in and drop their arms. No, they’re going to kill and they are going to die.”

A Heinz Endowment spokesman told the Washington Free Beacon that it gave the snack bar the grant last April to help fund its relocation to another site in Pittsburgh. He did not say whether or not the endowment would continue to support Conflict Kitchen in the future, but stressed that “the opinions of Conflict Kitchen do not represent those of the Heinz Endowment.”
