The Real Conspiracy Against the Palestinians

This via Haaretz:

Palestinians abandoned a quest to build the world's longest sandwich on Wednesday after health officials told them their 750-metre construction risked rotting in the West Bank summer sun.


"We were planning to add the mortadella and stuffing at the last minute to rule out any possibility of rotting," chef Ahmed Nazzal told Reuters. "There must be a conspiracy against us by other competitors."

UPDATE: This marks the first time I beat little green footballs to a piece of Mid East news. Blogosphere notoriety cannot be too far behind.
