Café cooks up a hum­mus peace plan

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS - BY ROSA DO­HERTY

IN AN at­tempt to quell the cur­rent ten­sion, one Is­raeli café is of­fer­ing Jews and Arabs who eat to­gether a 50 per cent dis­count on hum­mus dishes.

In a Face­book post, the owner of the Hum­mus Bar in Kfar Vitkin, Kobi Tzafrir, wrote: “Scared of Arabs? Scared of Jews? With us there are no Arabs, but also no Jews. With us there are peo­ple.

“And gen­uine ex­cel­lent Ara­bic hum- mus, and Jewish, ex­cel­lent, praise­wor­thy falafel.”

Speak­ing to the Times of Is­rael, Mr Tzafrir said: “If there’s any­thing that can bring to­gether th­ese peo­ples, it’s hum­mus.”
