People on social media have reacted after the official Tel Aviv twitter account posted a picture of kenafeh, with a message reading “This is Baklawa".
This is Baklawa. It is basically everything you need to know. pic.twitter.com/TWml0Ez04i— Tel Aviv (@TelAviv) November 24, 2017
Some people were angry at how they changed the name of it so they tweeted:
That's not baklava.. but it's cool, change the name of our sweets just like you changed the name of Palestine— Nadeem Aboufawaz (@CinciNADDY) November 25, 2017
No it's not, clearly someone has been skipping their Palestinian cuisine class.— Hatem Nabih (@hatemnabih) November 25, 2017

While others started calling things by their wrong names, trolling the tweet:

And this is an apple. That's all you need to know. pic.twitter.com/qHd4LKWLVB— نبيل (@Ternz) November 25, 2017
The Tel Aviv account responded to these comments by trolling itself, posting a picture of Paris with the text, “here’s a photo of Tel Aviv”.
This is not the first time that someone in Israel has claimed an item of Arab as Israeli During. Ramadan last year, Avichay Adraee, the Israel Defense Forces spokesman, referred to falafel as “Israeli falafel” in a video marking the Muslim holiday.
