Maybe it has been mentioned before, but since I didn't find a thread on it and think it deserves one, here is without further ado a feature on the thoughts that some Israeli citizens have on Iran and the current sabre-rattling:
'We Will Never Bomb Your Country': The Israeli-Iranian Peace Web
Meet Ronny Edry: an Israeli graphic designer, husband, father of two, and as of a few days ago, friend of the Iranian people. Edry, 41, and his wife, Michal Tamir, 35, are the Israelis responsible for the recent online initiative titled simply, "Iranians, We Love You."
Late last week, Ronny created a digital poster with this message, and added this line: "We will never bomb your country." The backdrop includes a photo of Ronny holding his five-year-old daughter, Ella, who herself holds a small Israeli flag. He posted the image on the Facebook page of the design preparatory school, Pushpin Mehina, that he runs with his wife in Tel Aviv.
With "loose talk" of war between Israel and Iran gaining momentum, the poster struck a nerve among Israelis. Many began sending in their own pictures, creating more posters that they then shared on Facebook. Messages of support poured in. And then Iranians themselves began responding, first in private messages to Ronny and Michal, and then with their own posters, with their own words of peace and love for Israelis.
(the part in bold didn't fit in the topic field, hence the emphasis)
I haven't yet had the chance to read all of it, but this looks absolutely inspiring and encouraging. I very much hope that it makes a difference.
***ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE KEEP THIS CIVIL***
