A Youtube Plea For Peace From an Israeli Father
Please share this, it's a video that should go viral. Go to youtube and comment, I did:
"THANK YOU SO MUCH... We need our peaceful voices to be heard. We are not cattle who cannot stop their own slaughter. We are human beings and we all share something in common; love, respect, peace and empathy for one another." thinkingblue
Amid war fever, some Israelis and Iranians talk of peaceISRAEL LOVES IRAN BLOG
By SHEERA FRENKEL
JERUSALEM -- Hoping to counter the incessant saber rattling from their respective governments, some Israelis and Iranians have started an online campaign to exchange simple messages of friendship and love.
The initiative, which began with Israeli couple Ronny Edry and Michal Tamir, calls for residents of each country to exchange photographs with the words, "We love you."
"I'm not an official representative of my country. I'm a father and a teacher," Edry wrote on his blog, www.IsraelovesIran.com. He included a photograph of him and his son. "I know the streets of my town, I talk with my neighbors, my family, my students, 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."
Within days, the first responses from Iran began to appear. The images posted by Israelis and Iranians are strikingly similar - they show people in the midst of daily activities, posing with their children, dog or favorite book. Some include messages such as "We don't want war," and "I wish we both get rid of our idiot politicians." Often, it's impossible to tell where the message originated until the telltale tag line, Iran (or Israel) we love you. MORE HERE
