It is an Arabic dish that became so loved by both Jews and Arabs alike in the Middle Eastern area that it became an Israeli national food staple. According to the article, Jews would go into the Arab quarters for a bite of authentic hummus.
So if you’re boycotting your Tribe, Sabra or other favorite hummus brands, you might want to keep this in mind: most likely, the brand you’re buying is certified kosher, has Jews, Muslims, or people of Middle Eastern nationalities on it’s staff. Then consider this: I have read that the dietary laws of Halal ALLOW for the consumption of Kosher food.
Finally, think about whom all these anti-Israel boycotts are really affecting. I believe that this would have little to no affect on their army or reserves. Israel has one of the finest armies in the world and the kids over there look forward to the draft.
Then there are the employees of these companies that you’re boycotting. There are both Israelis and Arabs making the products side by side; hummus, Ahava beauty products, and more; and it is the food from their mouths that you are taking because you don’t like what you are seeing in the media.
If you don’t like what you’re seeing on the news or reading about in the papers and online and you REALLY want to make a change, then go go to Israel and petition the government yourself. Don’t plaster the streets with your stickers and propaganda, because impressing your beliefs on the rest of us is the last thing that people want to see.
Nestlé owns about 51% of Osem, an Israeli company that owns Sabra. Maybe you’ll want to boycott them too?
I have his book, “A World of Food: Discover Magical Lands Made of Things You Can Eat!,” which is geared for preschool through third grade and even developed my own preschool lesson plan as an assignment. I had to present the lesson in front of my classmates. Maybe someday I will write about it. :) A World of Food: Discover Magical Lands Made of Things You Can Eat!

When I first saw this photo on my Facebook feed, this was my first thought. Of course, curiosity gets the best of us and we are only human, so I had to see for myself.
I checked my iTunes Store from my computer and there it was in my purchases. I am not complaining; I downloaded it and I intend on listening to it. However, I noticed that other people are, so I posted the above statement and photo (to my own, personal feed, then thought it would make a better article) AFTER I Googled the band, U2 and found an article with information explaining Apple’s response to the complaints.
Once it is removed, it will no longer be available for you to re-download as a previous purchase. You will have to buy it. This was Apple’s quick response to the complaints.
Personally, I’m not a fan, but I was curious since people were saying that it was an iPhone thing. Since I don’t have an iPhone, I decided to check it out on my PC’s Store. I think it’s cool that Apple decided to buy over 500 million people in 119 countries a gift. They are doing this to promote their newest models of phones; the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. 4.7 and 5.5 inches, some new features and a new device called iWatch. (Which, by the way, resembles Android Wear. I’m sure there are many key differences, but don’t be surprised to see an updated model release from Android and Google Play soon.)
Have you listened to the album yet? Do you like U2? What are your thoughts and opinions on Apple sending us gifts like this?
I’m having a party. A celebration. A graduation party, and a birthday party, if you will, but also a party to celebrate the multitude of September birthdays in my family. We are fall and back-to-school people, after all. Or we were, until us children flew the nest. Now we go back to visit the folks every fall for the Jewish Holidays and to celebrate some September birthdays. This year it’s going to be a little different. Lot’s of new things are happening in my family, including the fact that this party will be held at the folks’ new house.
In the meantime, I’d like to weigh in on some opinions for some party fare.
Are jello shots a brunch food, or should we stick to mimosas? What do you think?
What are some of your favorite food and drink to have at a brunch?
Thanks to notyoutoo, for sharing the link to the following video.
If you look close enough, you will see that the ‘artist’ left his signature.
It was created and uploaded by oondyla on his YouTube channel. Apparently Oondyla was a viral marketing company. I say “was,” because a Google search reveals no official website, though there used to be one at oondyla.com.
O-M-G, I just love how they try to sell themselves by saying they believe that viral marketing consists of running videos bearing THEIR NAME worldwide and that is how the companies that they hope to market for are going to reach a lot of people!
I also say it “was” a company with a website because according to its Whois information, expired on January 20, 2014 and has not been renewed.
Clearly this business was a bust!
(Don’t forget to check out that pancake recipe someone posted in response to the video on Facebook!)
Facebook, and the rest of the internet, has done it again!
One little twist of a photograph or video, and the rest of the world knows about it. Behold the Power of Facebook!
A July 29th Facebook post claims that a video, containing footage of a UFO, is the real deal and encourages its supporters to share it before “they” remove it from the internet. The poster of the video claims that Facebook has already been asked to remove the video.
I thought this was too funny for several reasons.
First of all, they posted this with too many capital letters, grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. Whether you’re a conspiracy theorist, radio website, or not, if you want what you’re writing to look legit, at least try to make it look legit.
The Facebook Page in question posted the following:
“This is the video that they are ERASING off the internet. Facebook has been Asked to DELETE. SHARE IT before it gets Deleted. Make this go Viral Now. PEOPLE MIGHT SAY ITS FAKE BUT BELIVE IN THEM AS MUCH AS YOU BELIEVE IN YOUR GOVERNMENT HIDING IT FROM YOU.”
Secondly, if they claimed that Facebook had been “asked to delete it,” well, weren’t they the ones posting it? Wouldn’t they be the ones asked to delete it? Why post it at all if they knew that Facebook was already deleting it?
Third of all, it’s September and this video is still all over the internet.
So of course I wanted to see if I could find the source. I don’t know if I did, but I found something interesting on an identical YouTube video.
I found this:
Let’s take a closer look:
So what is bandicam.com? Well, my dear readers, according to its website, “Bandicam is the most advanced Desktop Screen Recorder and Video / Game Recording Software on the planet.”
And there you have it.
My own belief is that somebody was recording their video gameplay of an alien invasion simulation of some sort. They probably uploaded the file onto YouTube or some other video uploading program to either store it or share it with friends and from there, it went viral.
Now, many of us know what happens when people post questionable content of the ridiculous kind. The comments that follow are usually just as entertaining. Amidst all the quirky responses, the believers, the disbelievers, and the Michael Jackson eating popcorn memes, I found this one to be the best:
So, my youngest brother recently graduated from Rutgers University. I just felt like sharing something from the Jewish a cappella group he joined while he was away for the last four years. I will definitely miss being in the audience, watching this talented group of young adults perform.
His group is called Kol Halayla, which, in Hebrew, translates as ‘voice of the night’. At Rutgers University, they are ‘The Voice of the Knight’. The Rutgers team mascot is the Scarlet Knight.
Joongle is a song by the popular Israeli singer, Eyal Golan. It is featured on Kol Halayla’s CD, “The Scarlet Knight Rises” (2013).
