John Kerry Loves Shawarma Too

And can you blame him?

The U.S Secretary of State was caught snacking on the famous Arab dish at Samer’s Restaurant while in tour in the Palestinian city of Ramallah. Flashing a thumbs up sign with an obvious mouthful of joy, Kerry was reported by Annahar to have visited a bike repair shop and greeted various civilians in the area.

Going a step further in enhancing his love of Arab food, Kerry also sampled a variety of Arabic sweets, looking positively ecstatic while crunching down on traditional baklava.

Kerry is currently in the region, touring until June 7 with the aims of making progress regarding Arab-Israeli relations. He has thus far met Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, and the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, and has publicly voiced his disappointment over the peace process before. Still, his personalized efforts are rare for a politician of his note, and as he told the restaurant owners of Samer’s, there is much to be improved, “Inshallah.”
