August 4, 2014 by Darius
Obviously, Palestine is very much in the news right now. Whether or not you’ve been following recent reports out of Gaza, how much do you actually know about Palestine and its people? The Christian Science Monitor has a quiz that lets you find out. It covers everything Palestinian, from politics to history to food.
Here’s the first question:
Which of the following is not a popular Palestinian culinary staple?*
There are 25 questions in total, with explanations for all the answers.
*Doner kebab is Turkish (quite similar to a gyro or shawarma). The other three are Palestinian staples: maqluba is a layered meat, vegetable, and rice dish; hummus is a chickpea-based spread; and labeneh is “a yogurt-like cheese often served with olive oil.”
