Does Jolio realise that Proskynesis was practiced by Ancient Greeks and Persians as a form of prayer and honour to their Gods? Lol. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proskynesis
Happy Birthday my friend next year in Jerusalem.....best wishes
As for hummus being Assyrian, I'll accept that, however the Crusaders definitely added the Frankish touch with Tahini.
Regardless, there is great, there is OK and there is awful, it makes no difference where it is made, it's the preparers taste buds that counts.
That being said here in Central Florida the best ingredients I have found and use are Lebanese, which is why my hummus is very good and working up to excellent.
