Felafal is originally a Broad Bean croquette and was first made by the ancient Egyptians. Like everything else that is Arabic/Egyptian/Turkish of course, Israel has adopted it and named it something else and tried to export it as their own. The only thing that they cannot export as their own is our dance form. THE ASHKENAZI CANNOT DANCE - NO RHYTHM. They just do not understand the rhythm of the region. It is laughable to see them try however the Sephardim fit right in - just like us. To see the national dance of Israel is unbelievable instead of the hora it should be called the HORRER.
