Just saw this referred to in an Austrian newspaper, a google search lead me to this article. This is an Onion-esque hoax, right? Some select quotes: "Chris, falafel is a gateway food," responded Bachmann, "It starts with falafel, then the kids move on to shawarma. After a while they say 'hey this tastes good, I wonder what else comes from Arabia? ... Before you know it our children are listening to Muslim music, reading the Koran, and plotting attacks against the homeland." "I have a friend in Texas who has to homeschool her children because her local public school forces students to eat hummus. Its everywhere now. This is really scary stuff." "I have no proof that President Obama is forcing our children to eat Arab and Middle Eastern food. But it would certainly fit the pattern." "We must ban falafel and other jihadi foods in schools before its too late." She almost makes Iranian President Ahmadinejad seem sane. Thread locked by request.
