Vino, my purpose wasn't to start a "falafel war", but rather to use it as an illustration of something rather more serious. There is a mindset in Israel which goes something like "what is jewish is exclusively ours, and what is non-jewish is shared". Therefore when something is referred to as being "jewish", there is an assumption of exclusivity and a denial of the other. This applies as much to buildings and land, as it does to cultural heritage. The point here is that one way for Israel to submerge the Arab identity of Palestine is to claim jewish title to aspects of palestinian heritage, including food & music, to the exclusion of the palestinians themselves.
