Friend of Goldblog Norman Winer points me to this disturbing news: Lebanon is declaring war on Israeli hummus. Rockets into the Galilee is one thing, but this is too much:

Lebanese businessmen are making a legal claim that would designate hummus as traditional to Lebanon. That would make it easier for them to sue to prevent companies in Israel and other nations from marketing the popular chickpea-and-olive-oil spread as their own.
