Israeli food event canceled in Spain

Israeli food month,  scheduled to begin March 9  in the tourist city of Hond-arribia, Spain, was canceled the previous week following threats from the ETA terror group, which supports the Palestinian struggle against what it calls “Israeli occupation,” Ynetnews.com reported.

The project, which would have sent four leading Israeli chefs to the Basque region to cook Israeli gourmet food in two restaurants, was organized by the Israeli Embassy in Madrid. — jta
