TEL AVIV, Israel, Oct. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a statement released this morning, Rael, spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement, has awarded the title "Honorary Guide for Humanity" to Kobi Tzafrir, manager of a hummus bar near the Israel coastal city of Netanya.
"Kobi Tzafrir recently started offering a 50-percent discount for each plate of hummus at tables where Jews and Arabs would sit together," explained Leon Mellul, Raelian Guide and leader of the Raelian Movement in the Middle East.
"In the midst of daily violence, Tzafrir is offering a haven of peace at his hummus bar, and the Mashiach Rael wanted to acknowledge that by awarding Tzafrir the Honorary Guide for Humanity title. This title has been bestowed only about 80 times since the creation of the Raelian Movement."

"All individuals who have been awarded this title are dedicating their lives and talents to making Earth a better place, "Mellul said. "They are promoting peace and respecting differences. Many Honorary Guides are based in or related in some way to Israel, since the current situation there is of high concern to the Mashiach Rael. His mission is to welcome back the Elohim, the scientists who created life on Earth, at an embassy that, if possible, is to be built in Jerusalem."
In a statement released August 6, the Mashiach Rael announced the end of protection for Israel by the Elohim and proclaimed his now anti-Zionist position.
"The message the Mashiach Rael relayed from the Elohim in August asked the Jewish people to promote 'a Judaism of peace and tolerance; an antiracist Judaism; a globalist Judaism that aims to unite all nations within a world government; an antimilitarist Judaism pushing for the immediate and unilateral elimination of weapons of mass destruction; a pro-science Judaism promoting genetics and space exploration; and, finally, a Judaism especially working toward [construction of] the Third Temple, our Embassy, ...'" Mellul explained.
"It is our pleasure to welcome Kobi Tzafrir as an Honorary Guide, and we hope that many will follow his lead for a true Judaism, in which sharing hummus with Arabs is the most natural way," Mellul concluded.
