According to a news article today, Fatah has blamed hummus for the breakdown in recent negotiations vis-a-vis the Palestinian crisis. Which begs the question: How the hell bad are the cooks in the Gaza Strip these days? I mean, it's pretty tough to screw up hummus, and god knows that must be doubly true for anyone living anywhere along the coast of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea -- from, say, Greece all the way around through Egypt. It's just chick peas, garlic, tahini, and some lemon juice. It ain't rocket science, people. Maybe they don't have good blenders over there, and it's all coming out too chunky or something. Trust me ... I really hate when I get a whole chick pea in mine. Makes me want to throw down a fatwa pronto. Yep, I like my hummus smooth and creamy. So, I put it to the international political community: If this is the problem, then for Christ's sake, can we send a friggin' Cuisinart to the middle east?

Update: Turns out I was wrong again ... Fatah faulted Hamas, the notorious Islamic Resistance Movement -- not hummus, the creamy garbanzo-bean-based spread. My bad.
