When war between Israel and Iran seemed imminent, Israeli graphic designer Ronny Edry shared a poster on Facebook of himself and his daughter with a bold message: “Iranians … we [heart] you.” Other Israelis quickly created their own posters with the same message — and Iranians responded in kind. The simple act of communication inspired surprising Facebook communities like “Israel loves Iran,” “Iran loves Israel” and even “Palestine loves Israel.”

    Your pictures are mostly of young people. Please know that those of us old enough to be their parents and grandparents, also, love Iran, Israel, Syria, Palestine, etc. We know the power of love and the failure of war. Keep up the valuable word

    Whether a Jew or Gentile says that the Jewish state of Israel should not exist, anti-Zionism is a form of racism. Would it make sense to say that you? love the Dutch but just want to see Holland destroyed or dismantled? Israel is arguably the most legally established state on Earth, as the int’l community voted in her favor, whereas most other nations became nations through conquest or without the world’s approval. Israel is here to stay, so deal with it and stop scapegoating Jews for politics.

    Meonetallguy, I’ve been called a lot of things, but I’ve never been called stupid. Your frequent name calling says a lot more who you are than it says about me. Your simplistic view of the government being inherently evil is based on extremely simplistic logic. No wonder your head is full of hatred and propaganda. You don’t have a working bullshit filter. It’s not governments that are inherently evil; it’s large? quantities of power that could be evil. Small governments are humble, unlike you.

    We should all do the same thing, it’s never been our? wars, it’s the Elite and their greed to gain Oil and Control, nothing to do with us, so this would hopefully stop them creating the wars.

    The power of ONE in action. Each of us CAN contribute to peace. Thank you so much for this lovely backstory on the original image – and yes, I had shared with many when the first? image came out. I rejoice that so much occurred afterward. To those who chose the ‘thumbs down’ for either the video or the message, I wish you peace in your own heart. Compassion to our world and her people!

    As for governments. All governments are inherently evil! A government in the beginning appears benevolent & governs in the best interest & service to the people but that quickly turns to an oppresive system where the pyramid is tipped upside down & the people are servants to the corrupt government…history shows it? happens all the time. Here in America we’ve been lied to & misled, have been fed propaganda up to our nostrils. Our politicians have taken this once great nation down an evil path!
