Israeli Cafe Knocks 50% Off Hummus for Jews, Arabs Who Dine Together

An Israeli cafe cuts hummus price in half to encourage unity.

— -- A cafe in Israel is using the power of hummus in an effort to bring Jewish and Arab residents together amid three weeks of deadly violence throughout the country and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

The Hummus Bar near the coastal city of Netanya is offering a 50 percent discount off the chickpea dish for all tables where Jews and Arabs sit together, according to a post from the restaurant's Facebook page.

"Afraid of Arabs? Afraid of Jews," the post read in Hebrew. "We don't have Arabs here, we don't have any Jews either... BUT we have people here! And we have excellent real Arabic hummus! And fine Jewish falafel!"

The cafe is also offering "free refills for all humus dishes be you Arab, Jewish, Christian, Indian, etc.," the post added.
