Are there pigs in Israel?

As I was flying into Tel Aviv from Germany, we were served dinner on the plane. “lamb or poulet?” the stewardess asked. Not sure what poulet was, some sort of chicken apparently, I opted for lamb. The label on the lamb had “NO PORK” stamped on it. Uh oh…no pigs in Israel? No bacon, sausage, ham…say goodbye to standard fare in the American breakfast.

When I landed, I asked some people if there were pigs in Israel, or if they ever saw any pigs. So far, answers have all come back negative. I will be keeping my eyes out for any pigs on a kibbutz somewhere.

I wonder if they ever heard of Charlotte’s Web? Perhaps that book is sacrilegious here?

Lamb...it's what's for dinner.
