KFAR VITKIN, Israel, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- A hummus cafe in Israel is seeking to foster understanding amid a series of violent incidents by offering a discount for Jews and Arabs who sit together.

The Hummus Bar at the M Mall in Kfar Vitkin said in a Facebook post a 50 percent discount will be given to tables with at least one Jewish person and one Arab sitting together.

"Scared of Arabs? Scared of Jews?" reads the Hebrew-language post translated by The Times of Israel. "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."

"Special: 50 percent discount on hummus to a table where Arabs and Jews sit together," the post said. Manager Kobi Tzafrir said several customers have taken advantage of the special since it was first offered Oct. 13.

"If there's anything that can bring together these peoples, it's hummus," Tzafrir said.
