Peace Is Going Viral

DISCLAIMER: Although Nextworldtv has tried to prevent political ads from appearing on this page, you may despite our best efforts see an ad that is in direct opposition to the message of this post.

"My idea was simple, I was trying to reach the other side." says Israeli graphic designer Ronny Edry. "There are all these talks about war, Iran is coming to bomb us and we bomb them back, we are sitting and waiting. I wanted to say the simple words that this war is crazy."

Using his graphic design skills and his wife's help, he made digital posters of himself and his daughter, holding an Israeli flag, with the text:


we will never bomb your country

We ♥ You

He posted this on Facebook. The response was overwhelming. "In a few hours, I had hundreds of shares and thousands of likes and it was like something was happening." says Edry.

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."

What a powerful example of how to make very clear that those in government do not represent the people. What if the citizens who are conditioned toward mistrust and aggression... instead become Facebook friends, united in the message of averting war and creating peace!?

How thrilling is that? Peace is going viral!
