Just in case you’ve been confused like I was.

Hummus: a spread made from minced chickpeas, seasame, lemon juice, salt, garlic and spices.
What is their origin?
Hamas: created in 1987 by a group of Palestinians to kick Jewish ass.
Hummus: has its origins in midieval or even ancient Middle East, though it’s not clear where or when.
What do they go well with?
Hamas: Islamist imperialism, Israel-bombing, Jew-hating, America-hating, terror-mongering, Gaza-capturing.
Hummus: bread, hard-boiled eggs, falafal, chips, crackers, salads and if your name is Zohan, you eat spoonfuls of it for no particular reason.
Who loves them?
Hamas: Arabs back them. Jews hate them. Canada and the US hate them. Even the Norwegians and Japs hate them.
Hummus: Jews love it. Arabs love it. Africans love it. Asians love it.
What do they look like?
No prizes for guessing which one I would prefer.
