Washington – A group of Muslim and Jewish activists is taking a bus tour around the Washington area in an effort to show that the religions don’t have to be enemies.

Thursday’s tour is called “Spread Hummus Not Hate.” It’s led by the New York-based Foundation for Ethnic Understanding and the Greater Washington Muslim-Jewish Forum.

Participants will sing songs, share pita and hummus and ask people to sign a pledge to confront bigotry. They plan to visit a mosque and a synagogue, among other locations. At 1 p.m. they’ll be at Farragut Square Park in Washington to greet the lunchtime crowd.
