Israeli PM accuses Iran of deploying "dangerous" weapons in Syria

"Нетаниягу делает из Израиля Турцию

Japanese officers had been reportedly horrified after studying Abe was served the dessert by Israeli superstar chef Segev Moshe contained in the shoe, designed by artist Tom Dixon.

"This is disrespect of the first order", said the daily in an article, adding, "Japanese diplomats, Israeli Foreign Ministry officials and high-ranking Israeli diplomats who previously served in Japan were shocked by the idea". "There is nothing more despised in Japanese culture than shoes". The gesture did not go down well with Japanese diplomats and media who were "offended" by the gesture extended to their Prime Minister.

The desert of chocolate pralines served in a pair of black men's brogues (said to be metal sculptures described alternately as "doorstops") was prepared by an Israeli chef Segev Moshe.

"There is no culture in the world where you put shoes on a table", the unidentified diplomat told the Hebrew-language paper, according to the Times of Israel.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to Israel made headlines all over the world but not for the reason one might expect.

There are many theories circulating about what possible meaning the shoes could have been meant to convey, however even if one assumes the gesture was one made out of complete ignorance, the diplomatic slight remains.

Another person wrote: "you don't need to know any culture to know that serving shoes at a dinner is WRONG!" For that occasion, the celebrity chef served the world leaders a creative dessert shaped in the heads of Trump and Netanyahu. Another wrote: "So you knowingly served the Japanese prime minister a dessert in a shoe".

"Did you do this intentionally to insult the Japanese people?" Not only do they not wear shoes at home, you also won't find shoes in their offices.

A Japanese diplomat was quoted by the Jerusalem Post pointing out that footwear was not in line of any cultures' dining norms.

A year ago, he created edible chesspieces as part of the dessert for the Netanyahus, President Donald Trump and Melania Trump during a formal dinner.

"The dessert was served inside a sculpture by worldwide artist Tom Dixon, whose works are displayed in major museums around the world and for the first time was displayed in Israel at a meal".

The chef's publicist released a statement saying the dessert was displayed in a "high-quality piece of art made of cast metal in the shape of a shoe; it is not a real shoe".
