While the country has reported growing tension after a series of violent attacks between the two, the café took to Facebook to advertise its message.

“Scared of Arabs? Scared of Jews?” the post said in Hebrew. “By us we don’t have Arabs! But we also don’t have Jews… By us we’ve got human beings! And real excellent Arab hummus! And great Jewish falafel! And a free refill for every serving of hummus, whether you’re Arab, Jewish, Christian, Indian, etc.” says the advertisement from the Hummus Bar, in Hebrew.

The Hummus Bar seeks to foster understanding between the two clashing groups and aims to promote brotherhood among them. It has been reported that several of the locals took advantage of the discount and are dining together, irrespective of their differences.

The little bar is set to preserve local peace as the attacks are growing in a fever pitch between Israelis and Palestinians.

“If there’s anything that can bring together these peoples, it’s hummus,” says Kobi Tzafrir, the manager of the restaurant, speaking about the creamy dip Hummus, which is made of mashed chickpeas, tahini and olive oil.

The innovative measure to check growing intolerance towards fellow beings has been well received in social media, with many sharing the message forward.
