The culinary delights of Madrid are considerable, but they have been lost on some religious members of the Israeli delegation to the Middle East peace conference. They brought no kosher food, and there is none to be found in the Spanish capital. "It is a sensitive issue," said Nachman Shai, an Israeli spokesman, after Jerusalem newspapers reported the kosher shortfall Thursday.

Lausanne reacted with surprise and anger Friday to news that Madrid is to host the Middle East peace conference. The decision, coming after weeks of preparation for an event Lausanne hoped would boost its own prestige, stunned the lakeside tourist city. "Madrid? It feels like April Fools' Day. We've really been conned," said one hotel owner. Lausanne had been seen as the strongest candidate because of Israeli objections to meeting in nearby Geneva.

We don't want bread! We don't want wine! We want the mayor... Hanging from a pine! That's the first verse of a new national anthem adopted by an angry suburb of Madrid that says it's seceding--and the song pretty much sums up the feelings of the 500 residents. They charge that the Madrid City Council is trying to snatch their homes at a fraction of fair market value, and they are waging a savvy public relations campaign to stop it.
