Israel hearts Iran. Iran hearts Israel.

Via on Mar 23, 2012

The Children of Adam are limbs of each other
Having been created of one essence.
When the calamity of time afflicts one limb
The other limbs cannot remain at rest.
If thou hast no sympathy for the troubles of others
Thou art unworthy to be called by the name of a man.

-Sa’adi

Can Social Media quiet the rumblings of War?

Let’s find out.

“Please help us prevent this war by spreading this message.”

Inspiring. One Israeli father inspires 100000s of Israelis. 48 hours later, 100000s of Iranians reply.

I hope this goes Viral.

We Love You – Iran & Israel

To the Iranian people
To all the fathers, mothers, children, brothers and sisters

For there to be a war between us, first we must be afraid of each other, we must hate.
I’m not afraid of you, I don’t hate you.
I don t even know you. No Iranian ever did me no harm. I never even met an Iranian…Just one in Paris in a museum. Nice dude.

I see sometime here, on the TV, an Iranian. He is talking about war.
I’m sure he does not represent all the people of Iran.
If you see someone on your TV talking about bombing you …be sure he does not represent all of us.

I’m not an official representative of my country. but I know the streets of my town, I talk with my neighbors, my familys, my friends and in the name of all these people …we love you.
We mean you no harm.
On the contrary, we want to meet, have some coffee and talk about sports.

To all those who feel the same, share this message and help it reach the Iranian people

My name is Ronny, I’m 41 years old. I’m a father, a teacher, a Graphic Designer.
I’m an Israeli citizen and I need your help.

Lately, in the news, we’ve been hearing about a war coming while we, the people are sitting, watching like it has nothing to do with us.

On March 15th, I posted a poster on Facebook. The message was simple.
Iranians. We love you. We will never bomb your country

Within 24 hours, thousands of people shared the poster on Facebook, and I started receiving messages from Iran.
The next day, we got featured on TV and newspapers, proving that the message was traveling. Fast.

Please help us prevent this war by spreading this message.

We need your help raising money in order to buy media: billboards, major magazines, TV ads and finally Times Square screens. We want everybody to understand that there will be no war.

    Can't take this seriously when Palestine is bombed every day

    • elephantjournal says:

      Amen. But though true, that attitude is no solution.

      How better to stop this generation-after-generation war than grassroots, two-way love?

    • linlori says:

      There are arguments both ways as to who started what and when, there are aggressions from BOTH sides between Israel and Palestine. Not just one, but BOTH. I fully agree with elephantjournal:

      "How better to stop this generation-after-generation war than grassroots, two-way love?"

  3. wendi says:

    I think anytime the voice comes from the people rather than governments, there is more compassionate and respectful dialogue. This is such a case- and it's how grassroots movements work toward peaceful resolution. Nation building through social media. I love it.

  4. [...] Peace in the Middle East! Update: Iran, Israel make nice. [...]

  5. [...] to the temperate climate, Israel has quite a large population of street cats, some of which are very well taken care of, others [...]
