THE WAR NEXT DOOR

Lebanese Army Investigating Israeli Peppers Discovered in Shop

A customer immediately contacted local authorities who in turn contacted the Lebanese Army.

A Lebanese shopper discovered several food items made in Israel in one of Lebanon’s largest retailers Tuesday, the Daily Star reported on Tuesday..

While shopping at Spinneys, in the coastal city of Sidon, a man, who preferred to remain anonymous, discovered a bag of three kinds of peppers made in Israel.

Spinneys, in Sidon, Lebanon.

Spinneys, in Sidon, Lebanon.

It should be noted, however, that the red and green peppers were clearly marked as imported from Spain, while only the yellow peppers were grown in Israel.

That’s only a 33% ratio of Israeli to Spanish peppers.

The anonymous customer immediately contacted local authorities who in turn contacted the Lebanese Army.

That’s probably because only one out of three peppers were enemy produce. Otherwise, the Navy and the Airforce would surely have been alerted as well.

And Hezbollah would have been notified in case of Jewish jalapeños.

In the end it was members of military intelligence and police who arrived at Spinneys, and their experts discovered 13 similar bags that had the word “Israel” printed on the sale tag.

There was much anger, and waling, and the gnashing of teeth.

Police experts pointed out that the international bar code for the offending items was scratched with a blue pen and a new code was handwritten on the bag.

Deception!

The case was then referred to the military judiciary for investigation into how the produce made it through customs at the port or the airport.

Spinneys had a similar incident almost ten years ago when shoppers discovered mugs made in Israel being sold at the retailer.

A search through the Spinneys Lebanon website yielded no Israeli products and no peppers, mixed or otherwise.

  2. See how bad Israel is, it sneaking Israeli peppers in to Lebanon.
    What's the world comming to.

  3. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Horrors of horrors! Yellow Israeli peppers discovered in a bag of peppers in a market in Lebanon!

  4. Norma Fares says:

    O yes, those peppers are a threat to the Lebanon National Security but Hezbollah, armed Hamas and Fatah, Fateh Al-Islam and all their terrorist allies are NOT. Sickening.

  5. Jane Smith says:

    This is a clear example of how irrationally obsessed the Arab governments are with Israel. Totally ridiculous.

  6. good article.

    I wonder what will happen to Lebanon when Sunni Jihadists take over in Syria.

  7. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Got a great idea….I'm gonna Google for some pictures of Israeli peppers…and then post it on their FB page!!

    Oh come on. With all the misery in the world, I could use a good laugh!

  14. Grace Acosta says:

    Zionist bell peppers caught illegally occupying a Lebanese grocery store, probably displacing oppressed local peppers. Have they no SHAME?

  16. WHAT's WRONG WITH YELLOW ZIONIST PEPPERS……..THEY SHOULD DECLARE WAR FOR THIS OUTRAGE…….HA HA HA.

  17. Tim Upham says:

    This is so stupid, when I was at Metula, I saw cross border trade going on all of the time. Israeli farmers were trading chickens and milk to Lebanese farmers for cigarettes. If there can be cross border between individual farmers, then why cannot there be cross border trade between nation-states? No one in Lebanon is going to die from eating these Israeli peppers Politics can make people so stupid!

  18. Is this a reality show?
    I have seen myself decades ago Israeli lorries with Israeli vegetables and fruits changing at Jericho the Israeli licencing plates for Jordanian ones and passing the border to Jordan.
    It was sold in Jordan as Jordanian crops.
    It was bringing in some money, and that is what counts.
    There is nothing new under the sun.

  19. Nicolle Simon says:

    No, No, Jerry~ Israel is NOT sneaking Israeli peppers into Lebanon — the Lebanese are coveting Jewish contraband. How much do you want to bet that Hezbollah announces that yellow peppers were specifically grown to burn out the mouths of Israeli's enemies…[allivai]!

  20. Art Levitas says:

    Better from Israel, than CHINA.

  21. Liad Bar-el says:

    Clearly it is a MOSSAD plot to gain entry to and to be placed on the serving tray of Nassrallah. MI5, MI6 and the CIA are particularly interested because Israel developed microscopic photo/listening devices the size of a white pepper seed and implanted them in all yellow peppers. Why yellow peppers? Yellow represents the color of cowards. Israel is looked upon in the Arab world as cowards by having a government and judicial system of leftists, giving away land for peace, not fighting terror and hiding in bomb shelters instead of stopping the source of the missile attacks, etc, etc, etc. MOSSAD also developed a worm but it was not for peppers. The worm’s name is Stuxnet.

  22. Deb Morgen Stern says:

    some of the comments that were posted in response o this really reported situation: "Horrors of Horrors…" & "Zionist bell peppers caught illegally occupying a Lebanese grocery store, probably displacing oppressed local peppers. Have they no SHAME?" & "See how bad Israel is, it sneaking Israeli peppers in to Lebanon. What's the world comming to."

    Gnashing of teety….jalepeno peppers…funny.
