The only difference between Hamas and the Nazi party is...

No one ever confused the Nazi party with a delicious paste you would eat with a pita:

And yes - the best Hummus is Israeli Hummus. I tried some Greek while vacating in Cyprus, wasn't as good as Sabra - which can be bought in many locations across the US; including Busch's, Sam's Club, and Hiller (those are the places I found in Michigan).

A shortened history of Hummus, just in case you encounter some Muslim zealots who believe it to be originally Arabic food:
Garbanzo beans originated in the Middle East, the region of the world whose varied food cultures still heavily rely upon this high protein legume. The first record of garbanzos being consumed dates back about seven thousand years. They were first cultivated around approximately 3000 BC. Their cultivation began in the Mediterranean basin and subsequently spread to India and Ethiopia.

Garbanzos were grown by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans and were very popular among these cultures. During the 16th century, garbanzo beans were brought to other subtropical regions of the world by both Spanish and Portuguese explorers as well as Indians who emigrated to other countries. Today, the main commercial producers of garbanzos are India, Pakistan, Turkey, Ethiopia and Mexico.
