It's not nearly as funny as it sounds, though. Israeli food products are the costliest in the Western world, and that goes practically across the board. The reason appears simple enough: lack of competition for the country's food behemoth, the Strauss Group.

Qatar is going all out to assemble a major conference next week, with 350 representatives from Arab and Islamic countries, who will discuss "the legal status of Jerusalem before and after the Israeli occupation." The funny thing is that Palestinian Knesset members who will be spewing their venom at the conference, decrying Israeli crimes against humanity, yada, yada, yada, will be the only democratically elected officials. Is this a fun region or what?
