Israel loves Iran

A campaign in contrast to the mutual, growing threats on behalf of the governments in Tehran and Jerusalem.

Israel Loves Iran is a social media campaign from the Israeli graphic designer Ronny Edry and his wife Michal Tamir. The two of them wanted something to contrast to the mutual, growing threats on behalf of the governments in Tehran and Jerusalem. They began with a single picture on Facebook, in which Edry and his daughter were shown with the caption: “Iranians, we love you, we will never bomb your country”. The image soon went viral and inspired thousands and thousands of Facebook users to imitate it in similar styles. On their blog, Ronny and Michal collected the works, which were no longer just coming from Israel, but soon enough from Iranians as well. Under the slogan “My Israeli friends, I do not hate you; I do not want war. Love, peace”, they announced in return their sympathy for the Israelis. Many of the participants met up in other countries and took photos of themselves having a coffee together. Now there is also the reciprocal Facebook page “Iran Loves Israel”.
