IDF Chefs Face Off

In the first event of its kind, the IDF’s Gaza Division hosted a cooking competition between various battalions located near the Gaza Strip last Monday (May 27). Over the course of the day, seven battalions participated in challenges focusing on particular cooking styles, redefining boundaries of the IDF’s food preparations.

The jury consisted of four professional chefs who judged the meals with high standards. The IDF’s Logistics Division officer, Lt. Col. Avi Motola, and other brigade commanders and officers were also in attendance, impressed by the chefs’ skills.

The participating chefs displayed their dishes – Moroccan, Persian, Indian, and Mediterranean delicacies – in seven cooking stations. They were judged both on the quality of the food and on the look and design of their work.

The competition’s winner was the Nesher Battalion, whose chefs prepared Mediterranean dishes.

“Mediterranean cuisine is very diverse and characteristic of the diversity within the IDF,” explained the Nesher Battalion’s Station Manager, Warrant Officer Haim Nachmani. “We built the menu in advance and prepared significantly for this day. Our winning meal was a meat platter sautéed with grapes and cherries, served along with a salad and a combination of sides.”

Don’t you feel just a tad jealous of Egypt right now?

Israel’s Security Cabinet is meeting in a marathon session to decide the next step in Operation Protective Edge.

More than 1,550 individuals have immigrated to Israel from Ukraine in the first five months of 2014 alone, more than double the 693 who arrived in the corresponding period last year.

Signs that Islamic State (ISIS – Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) terrorists have arrived in Egypt have appeared in the Sinai Peninsula.

Shlomy Zachary, an Israeli human rights lawyer, noted that Israeli cooperation with previous UN investigations has helped mitigate criticism of Israel – for example, in a 2010 UN investigation of the so-called flotilla incident.

Israelis may have to blame Qatar for the current round of lethal rocket fire, if a report published in Arab media is true.

So imagine, you’re working in the field harvesting cucumbers (or whatever is in season right now) and suddenly the siren goes off – Hamas is shooting rockets at you.

Another miracle for the Jews in Israel — this time in Ashkelon, where a missile exploded directly on a house but hurt no one.

Hamas dramatically upgraded its weapons stockpile, placing millions of Israeli civilians at risk.

Terrorists involved in the rockets launched at Israel last week were targeted Friday by the IAF.

Since Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, terrorists in the area have fired more than 8,000 rockets into Israel.
