Last week, Israeli U.N. ambassador Ron Prosor treated U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon to shakshuka, from an Israeli Manhattan food truck called Shuka Truck.

Naturally, this upset the perennially upset Palestinian Arabs.

Palestine Today writes that the dish “originated in occupied Palestine since ancient times; and spread to become one of the main dishes known in the Arab world.”

The Palestinian Arab kitchen is a target of Israeli theft. Israel claims for itself much Palestinian Arab cuisine, such as hummus and falafel.

It should be noted that the occupation also claimed that Palestinian costume and headdresses and the Canaanite shekel is of pure Jewish heritage.

Professor of history at Al-Azhar University in Gaza, Dr. Riad al-Astal, confirmed that Jewish groups have been trying hard to convince the world that they are the rightful owners of in the Arab region, especially the Palestinian land, by distorting facts and falsification of heritage in their favor.

Dr. Astal said the battle with the occupation over heritage is no less dangerous than the occupation of land and required a clear strategy to address these thefts, calling on international bodies such as UNESCO to address the issue of counterfeiting heritage.

In reality, the dish originated in northern Africa, not in the Levant. Jews from Tunisia and Libya brought the dish with them when they were expelled from those tolerant Arab countries. Ambassador Prosor never claimed that this was a Jewish or Israeli-origin dish.

So the only people who are stealing others’ culture is, as usual, “Palestinians.” I wonder what the north African community thinks about that.

    Shakshuka actually cones from Tunisia. From the pre Arabized indigenous people called Amazigh. This is not even an Arab food met alone a Palestinian food. Will the Tunisians cry about cultural appropriation and theft?

    How ridiculous, everyone knows that the only thing the palestinians invented was machine-gunning busloads of school children.
