God Hates Chick Peas?

 

”JIHADI  FOODS ”

Quote —  controversial congresswoman Michele Bachmann:  “We need to stop these terror cakes now, before they infiltrate any further.”

We Must Ban Falafel’ in School Lunches.”

Bachmann stopped short of advocating a ban on all Arab food, saying that  “responsible adults can probably use Arab food safely in moderation.”

“I have no proof that President Obama is forcing our children to eat Arab and Middle Eastern food. But it would certainly fit the pattern.”

Thank you, Michele Marie Bachmann for a really rare chance to have a genuine lough about Middle Eastern politics, the only one I have had so far. Thanks again!

Too good to be true, but it could be. The source is a satirical magazine.

Chick peas are God’s creation. How could He, God, Allah hate falafel?  Remember, Jesus was praying to Allah, the word for God in his mother tongue Aramaic, but perhaps you did not know. Middle Eastern Christian still do. And eat falafel!

I checked your CV from Wikipedia. As you have been living in Israel for a while you should know Jews do like falafel, too and Israeli Jewish tourists love them when visiting Muslim countries. I am told it is the most sold snack for them.

Falafel is very popular in the Middle East as a fast food. Vendors sell it on the street corners in Cairo. As a main dish, it is served as a sandwich, stuffed in pita bread with lettuce, tomatoes, and tahini. As an appetizer, it is served on a salad, or with hummus and tahini. Falafel is a favorite among vegetarians.

In Egypt, McDonald’s has their version of a falafel sandwich. Can you guess the name? McFalafel, of course.

Ingredients:
1 cup dried chickpeas or 16 oz. can of chickpeas or garbanzo beans.
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons flour
Salt

Preparation:
Place dried chickpeas in a bowl, covering with cold water. Allow to soak overnight. Omit this step if using canned beans.

Drain chickpeas, and place in pan with fresh water, and bring to a boil.

Allow to boil for 5 minutes, then let simmer on low for about an hour.

Drain and allow to cool for 15 minutes.

Combine chickpeas, garlic, onion, coriander, cumin, salt and pepper (to taste) in medium bowl. Add flour.

Mash chickpeas, ensuring to mix ingredients together. You can also combine ingredients in a food processor. You want the result to be a thick paste.

Form the mixture into small balls, about the size of a ping pong ball. Slightly flatten.

Fry in 2 inches of oil at 350 degrees until golden brown (5-7 minutes).

Serve hot.

 

Bon Appetit!

With greetings Mona

Women in Islam vs Women in the Judeo-Christian Tradition

The Western media is portraying women in Islam as the symbol of subordination of women ‘par excellence’. This picture is so complete that even an attempt to scratch it is in vain. Unfortunately, many journalists choose to rely on wellknown stereotypes. Muslims count over 1 billion in the world alltogether and naturally many sects, small and large, have split from the moderate mainstream Islam, which constitutes ca. 90 % (called the “Sunni”-Muslims). In most Muslim countries today women are advancing and exercising their rights by participating in politics, education, working as judges, professors, doctors etc.

I warmly recommend the following web site (17 pages long) to all my readers … since you came to my page you should not miss that one. There you will find proof that it was the Judeo-Christian Tradition that truly oppressed women and it is the Islamic teaching where you find equality and companionship between a man and a woman… And the Veil is not an Islamic invention!

“Women in Islam versus Women in the Judaeo-Christian Tradition” by Prof. Sherif Abdel Azim, Queens University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada
