Prime Minister Salam Fayyad testing a massive dish of musakhan, a traditional Palestinian food, in the West Bank village of Arura, near Ramallah on 19 April 2010. The dish has a diameter of 4 meters.

Chefs are hoping to win an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest dish of musakhan ever made. It contained 500 chickens, 500 kg of onions, 250 kg of flour, 170 liters of olive oil, 70 kg of almonds and 50 kg of spices and sumac.

very good food, however doesn't the PA and fayyad have more important things to be worried about, such as the brutal occupation and general welfare of the palestinians in the west bank and gaza and east jerusalem??

the PA has become a complete joke in the eyes of most palestinians!

Fayyad understands that public relations, as far as the rest of the world goes, is important too. Everything has it's place and Fayyad understands. He's on the right path.

Who eats all this? It is sad that record breaking contests take precedent over hungry, unemployed or poor Palestinians. People should be ashamed of themselves. It would be something if gov't officials, chefs and restaurant folks got together to feed the hungry instead of trying to get into Western record books. Why just wait for Ramadan to feed a hungry stomach? It is like the "giant" knafa in Nablus ...it was disgusting to see all of it on the floor and the waste and garbage after the event!

As long as it was all eaten by those in need of the food, this is a nice distraction from the daily struggle. Any idea if anyone besides PM Fayyad got to eat any of it?

Is this a joke? First the biggest knafeh and now the biggest msakhan. How about spending these money on the poor instead? We are a occupied people and these fools want to enter the guiness record book. Well if thats the case, how about entering it for the best puppets of israel, im sure Fayyad and Abbas will get a record for that one. UNBELIVABLE.

Ann, Fayyad is a fool and a protecter of a dictator called Mahmoud Abbas. Exactly what right path are you talking about, israel killing Palestinians while Salam Fayyad is busy making the biggest msakhan? The only reason why he is praised by your government is because he is a puppet for israel. It really doesnt matter if someone is a dictator, all it takes to be praised by the US is to be a puppet for israel/US hence why the worst of the worst have been dubbed "moderates" by the US.

He is on the right path drawn for him by the US. I agree. Which by the way is the opposite path to the one that leads to freedom, resistance to occupation and seeing your children growing up without Israeli terrorists taking out their lives.

What's with all the guiness records attempts? Largest Knafa, largest number of kites flying, largest tabouleh, largest fake government....

Sahal, speak for yourself. We dont want a rulership that tortures people who have the wrong opinion, leaders who dont respect freedom of speach and want to create a mini-Palestine where they can continue to steal as much as they like and turn our country in to another failed Arab state ruled by dictators. And since you dont give a damn about demoracy, why dont you come live in Palestine to see how these thugs show their muscles on the Palestinians and then run away when the zionazis come!

Sahal, no scr*w you and scr*w your mr fayyad. My brother christian Palestinian is right. And do you think that its an achievement to make the largest musakhan or hummos or tabboul? Real achievement is to resist your enemy instead of your own people. Its to improve the health care and education instead of stealing the people's money. Your a backward idiot who dont mind living under no freedom, but we the Palestinian people arent like that. And If you dont care about democracy then leave the UK!
