Palestinian Ambassador in London Manuel Hassassian has recently said that when he was a student at an American university in Ohio, he beat up an Israeli student who claimed that falafel and hummus are Israeli foods.



In an interview with the Lebanese Al-Quds channel, Hassassian said that "the Jews have invaded and taken over the land in Jerusalem. It was then International Day at the university in Toledo, Ohio, and we displayed (an exhibition on) Palestinian folklore. Nearby was the Israeli stand, and one student declared that hummus and falafel were Jewish national foods."

"I said to him: 'how dare you? You steal my land, exile my people and now you are robbing us of our folklore and national foods? You claim that it is Jewish food? It is our food, of the Palestinian people, and I will not allow this.' I then grabbed him and gave him a beating," he continued.
