"BEIRUT: Lebanon will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest servings of hummus and tabouleh as part of a campaign to claim ownership of the traditional dishes. The attempt to break the world records will take place in the Saifi market in Downtown Beirut on October 24 and 25. The dishes are expected to stretch some 5,800 square kilometers. The two-day event will also see the participation of several Lebanese restaurants and artisans from the oil, souvenirs and craftsmanship industries, as well as a variety of entertainers, games and auctions."

I'm all for claiming ownership in order to take business out of the Israeli's but how exactly will the guiness book help with that, I am not sure. I mean you could make the biggest hummus dish on antarctica, does this make in a penguin dish? I hate these wasteful "largest dish" events.
