This article in a seemingly Saudi-Egyptian news site (and then another Arabic news site) threw me for a loop.

After years of seeing Arab propaganda that Jews stole Arab cuisine, this article purports to name 10 "Jewish" foods that Arabs like to eat - including foods that most Arabs claim as their own!

The accuracy of this article isn't important. The fact that it was written at all is astounding.

10 Jewish dishes eaten by Arabs every day:

1. Shakshuka (really Tunisian)

2. Couscous  (but the description is actually of Israeli couscous; I'm not sure if Arabs eat that)

3. Macaroni with Bechamel sauce (they say that it is eaten during Jewish holidays, I have no idea what this is.)

4. Salata Baladi (Arab Salad, or what many call Israeli Salad

5. Sambousa and Burekas (which are Arabian/Asian and Balkan in reality)

6. Falafel. Yes, really. They identify it accurately as "Israel's national dish."

7. Challah! I had no idea Arabs enjoyed challah, but there is at least one Haaretz article about that in specific circumstances.

8. Krembo, “Ras Al-Abd” (Slave’s head) and Marshmallow
The article itself talks only about the Krembo. You can see about Krembo and “Ras el Abd” here:

9. Kubba (Levantine)

10. Chicken Al-Banih - Schnitzel

The article notes that schnitzel originated in Austria and Germany but says the Jews made it with chicken rather than pork, as do Arabs  nowadays.
