Plot to deprive Israeli cabinet ministers of edible food

[...] Acting unilaterally, [Israeli Cabinet Secretary Zvi] Hauser changed the menu of snacks available to ministers at cabinet meetings, the Yediot Ahronot daily wrote Monday.

In place of the usual fare of pastries, croissants and borekas (a dough-like pastry filled with cheese or potato), ministers were forced Sunday to sit through the weekly cabinet session munching on granola, vegetables, low-fat yogurt, and wash it all down with water instead of the usual sweetened fruit juice. [...]
Fortunately some ministers are taking a stand for normal nosh:
Three, whose names the Israeli daily said were available on request, "formed a coalition and stated unequivocally: 'Bring back the borekas or there will be a government crisis'."
