Rachael Ray, an American celebrity chef and television personality, posted a tweet claiming hummus to be an Israeli dish, alongside tabbouleh, meze stuffed grape leaves, and an assortment of dips familiar to the Arab world. CJ Werleman writes, “Ray’s tweet amounts to more than your everyday willful, yet forgivable display of ignorance, but rather reflects the effectiveness of unchallenged pro-Israeli narratives and storytelling in Western political discourse, one that seeks to erase any memory of Palestinian existence.”
