IRAN LOVES ISRAEL
IRAN LOVES ISRAEL
Thousands of children lost their fathers. More graveyards in Iran had to be built during the war. Nearly everyday for eight years, we heard the red sirens telling us that another bomb was coming! Yes, I am an Iranian, and when I talk about war I know, first hand, what war is and the results of war and hatred. Oh my God, now another war with no reason is coming? Not with Iraq, but with another neighbor country called Israel? This fear and dread of another war is our daily routine in Iran. The war between Iran and Iraq was started based on our government’s decisions and was stopped by the government as well.? We, as ordinary people, were not given a chance to understand the reasons for the war with Iraq, but still, we were routinely sent into battle to be killed.
Iran and Israel, we say, “Please just wait! Give us more time to get to know each other!” We are our own ambassadors. I believe that we must have a reason to hate, but we don’t need a reason to love! I have no reason to hate Israelis, and since I don’t need a reason to love Israelis, I LOVE ISRAELIS.
Once again loud and clear, ‘We are ready to live in peace! We are NOT ready to die in a ‘no-reason-bloody-war’ between two neighboring countries that are supposed to be friends and love each other!

In school I had very few friends. I kept to myself. When I turned 20, I decided to open my heart and try new things. I traveled alone, I made new friends from all over the world, went dancing, dated girls, learned languages… And as part of experimenting with new things, I also started to smoke. My first cigarette was in November 2000. I believe I can stop any time but I keep delaying quitting.
PEACE starts with the people, one person at a time. Today it’s easier than ever to connect and reach out to one another. We can talk, we can meet, and we can start a new friendship without even leaving our homes just by the click of a button. One new person, One new connection. Peace is when we see and treat each other as people. All we have to do is talk.
