Israeli food event in Spain canceled over terror threat


An Israeli food event in Spain was canceled after threats from a Basque terror group.

Israeli food month in the tourist city of Hondarribia, in the Basque region of Spain, was scheduled to begin Wednesday. It was canceled last week following threats from the ETA terror group, which supports the Palestinian struggle against what it calls “Israeli occupation,” Yediot Achronot reported.

The project, which would have sent four leading Israeli chefs to cook Israeli gourmet food in two restaurants, was organized by the Israeli Embassy in Madrid.

In phone calls to the restaurants, ETA told the owners that if the Israeli chefs came it would harm the restaurants. The threat caused the owners to refuse to host the event, according to the Israeli newspaper.
