US: Anti-Israel pop-up restaurant receives funding from John Kerry’s wife’s foundation

A food cart that hands out anti-Israel propaganda with each of its sandwiches has received funding from a foundation run by Secretary of State John Kerry’s multi millionaire wife.

Conflict Kitchen, a pop-up restaurant located at the intersection of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh.

It seeks to use food to educate locals and college students about countries that are allegedly in conflict with the United States.
Forgetting to inform about the bad they do to others be it honour killings and
Hanging of women for protecting them self's against rape (see link below)
Palestinian justice is nothing bit lynch justice at best and is also brought to the
US. See the young man (below)why was he not invited to the opening of the pop-up restaurant so it could function as a pop-up reality!

It recently began serving Palestinian food wrapped in leaflets that include quotes from Palestinians defending terrorism and opposing the existence of Israel.The statements on the wrappers were taken from interviews with Palestinians. They are published without quotation marks and do not appear to be edited for accuracy.

Another section of the wrapper refers to the creation of Israel as “an intentional and ongoing offensive.” It also alleges that Israel deliberately blocks Palestinians from obtaining drinking water, opposes non-Jews from becoming citizens, and has assassinated or imprisoned all of the non-corrupt Palestinian leaders.

According to the wrapper, Conflict Kitchen is supported in part by the Heinz Endowment, which is chaired by Kerry’s wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry.

A spokesman for the Heinz Endowment told the Washington Free Beacon that it gave Conflict Kitchen a $50,000 grant last April to support its relocation to another site in Pittsburgh.

He declined to say whether the Heinz Endowment would continue to support the group in the future, but added that, “the opinions of Conflict Kitchen do not represent those of the Heinz Endowment.”

As secretary of state, John Kerry has devoted much of his time to pushing Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, but has made little progress. In addition to blaming the rise of the Islamic State on the lack of a peace deal last week, Kerry also claimed earlier this year that Israel could become an “apartheid state” if it doesn’t reach an agreement.

The Conflict Kitchen’s wrapper—as well as two recent events it held with anti-Israel activists—is drawing criticism from the local pro-Israel community.

One event featured Laila El-Haddad, a Palestinian activist who supports a one-state solution and the boycott campaign against Israel.

A second event featured University of Pittsburgh professor Ken Boas, a board member of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions-USA, who reportedly compared Israel to South Africa under apartheid and called on the audience to support a boycott of Israel.

Gregg Roman, community relations director for the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, said that Conflict Kitchen organizers have declined to include speakers who are supportive of Israel at the events.
Roman says his request was rejected by Conflict Kitchen’s co-director, Jon Rubin, who is an associate professor in the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University.

This is utterly racist and not any better than the South African Apartheid then what ?
And most certainly does not show that Palestinians are victims of racism but rather the fact that where ever they go the create such! Now even in the US.

Iran and Palestinian laws are hardly any  good examples of human rights and gender equality 
that it would take me a full page to write all the wrongs including the woman who was 
executed today in Iran for protecting here self from rape.

Previously, Conflict Kitchen served Iranian food along with leaflets that included quotes that claimed a nuclear Iran would not be a threat and that the United States would profit from any military intervention.
“Iran should equally have the right to develop nuclear weapons,” said one quote on wrapper.

“In general, Iranian people have no issues with the Jews,” said another quote. “What Iranians resent is the creation of the state of Israel because of the disaster that it created for millions of Palestinians. To this day, Israel refuses to recognize the United Nation’s resolutions for Israel to leave the occupied lands.”

The Heinz Endowment was not listed as a supporter of Conflict Kitchen on the Iranian food wrapper.According to Conflict Kitchen’s Palestinian leaflets, it also receives funding from the Sprout Fund, the Benter Foundation, and the Studio for Creative Inquiry. 

The Benter Foundation is run by horse-racing tycoon and Democracy Alliance member Bill Benter, who was revealed to be a major funder of liberal Middle East lobbying group J Street in 2010.

There is a reason why US has conflicts with nations that practice honour killings and give no rights for other philosophies no matter if religious or political the nations are not multi cultural or have equal rights on any matter at all ......

Is Mrs kerry out of her mind to even remotely think that a sound mind 
would give up western culture of tolerance for some fried camel kebab ?

SDR has a very strong feeling for gender rights and almost all nations
that this Pop-up travesty is wanting us to understand do kill and torture
women at the worst of forms possible...

Just to leave this matter with a feeling of at least trying to save sanity 
of the family Kerry and friends. Here are some links that show
there truth in the media right now .
