What's so Arab about this trade zone?

Look at this very interesting web site called the Arab Trade Zone. It has a multitude of food commodities and products on offer, all of which originate from China. They include sesame, walnuts, millet etc.. which are local Middle eastern staples.

Just in case you were still wondering about where does the manoucheh come from. I wrote in that previous post that sesame comes from Syria. Correction: it probably comes from China.
