The conflict between Israel and Palestine has been writ small, six 
thousand miles away.

Pittsburgh may be known for its steel mill past and its high-tech 
present, but is now emerging as the seat of a lively debate concerning 
Palestinian food, free speech, and criticism of Israeli policies.

The Conflict Kitchen is a take-out eatery that only serves food from 
countries with which the United States is in conflict. The restaurant 
began serving Palestinian food on October 6. On November 8, restaurant 
co-director Jon Rubin received a letter containing a death threat. As a 
result, Mr. Rubin temporarily closed the Conflict Kitchen.
