Palestinian Propaganda Culturally Appropriates the Bagel
In yesterday’s post on a recent palestinian propaganda cultural appropriation, I quipped:
It is almost as if propaganda page Olive Palestine – fast becoming a “favorite” of mine – took this as their cue.
To culturally appropriate bagels.
Believe it or not, this is the not the first palestinian attempt to do so.
Last year, Reem Kassis, someone who once wrote a piece in the Washington Post entitled Here’s why Palestinians object to the term ‘Israeli food’: It erases us from history, claimed the bagel came from Arab traders. As I showed in that post, this does not seem to be true. But:
At the end of the day, all foods can be argued to have been influenced by others. In a sense, everyone somehow appropriates from someone else. And this doesn’t just apply to foods. Jews could argue that other monotheistic religions appropriated from Judaism, but what’s the point?
But the palestinian propaganda machine love to spray the proverbial buck shot, hoping something hits the target.
