STOP THE WAR
During November 2012 in the beginning of the conflict between Israel and Hamas, we start a campaign asking to stop the violence, asking for a cease fire. We receive thousand of messages
from Israel , Palestine and all over the world, text and images from people supporting peace in the region. It was important, especially at the time , to show that even in the middle of the storm there are people how want peace and stand for it on both sides
8 days of violence between Israel and Hamas hundreds of missiles, rockets, bombs dead, fear, millions of people under attack
Here we call it “circle of violence” ,”Rounds”, like a boxing match, that goes on for 60 years, never ending
today I have the worst argument with my best friend. Was ugly, depressing
“you calling for cease fire when buses are blown up in your own town, rockets falling over your head!!, how stupid that is?!”I m calling for a cease fire for 8 days, for 10 years, and every day that pass without it, every loss …that’s the stupidity. Because every conflict have an inevitable end. And it s not the death of the other side….no ..the inevitable it s peace. Even after 100 years of war…peace will come. So why not today.
Haven’t we lost enough, why wait for the next bus, the next bomb.
do I have to raise my son to go fight in the next round for peace to happen.
What is wrong with NOW More dead won’t resolve nothing. The only solution is Peace.I m not leaving Israel to live in Canada. This is my home. I’m here to stay.
I’m sure Palestinians wont leave to Jordan either. This is their home.
I m ready to share, to make it together, I m ready to live in peace, I m ready to sit and talk, even after all the violence, because I understand that every day count. If we start today, we save the ones that don’t die tomorrow
I’m ready Ronny.
Please stop the war
Please stop the rockets.
Please don’t enter Gaza.
It will lead only to more death.
On both side people are going to die.
We are going to loose friends, family, children.
We are going to get trapped in another bloody
circle and at the end it will serve no one.
We can stop now.
Stop the rockets.
Stop the marching orders.
Talk before it s too late.
This is The only solution to this madness.
Even in this difficult moment, even after all the rockets, the bombing, the dead, it is not to late.As an Israeli, my heart goes to my people in the south of Israel, to the mothers and children
of Ashdod, Ashkelon, to the families who lost their loved one, to the people who have been living in fear for years.
As a human being my heart goes also to the mothers and children of Gaza, to the families who lost their loved one,
to the people living in fear for years.More bombs on both side won t change a thing. They will just prove right the extremists and take all of us down.
In 2009 hundreds of people died in the same scenario….for what?
In the last 4 years both side should have done everything they can so this will never happen again….
and today it s happening all over again.
Today can be the last day of this war if you want it
Please stop the war
stand with us, send your picture and we will post it with the slogan
“Please Stop The War”
we ♥ you
we are all one
and many more…
I had to come out
I was twenty when my parents bought me the ultimate “babe magnet” – a convertible Peugeot 206. They thought i needed a little leverage to push me out of my shyness with the girls. I knew it’s time to kick down the doors of my closet.
My sister already knew about me. Coming out to her was in my terms. I guess it’s usually easier to come out to your siblings first. One day, my sister told me that mother asked her about the success of the “babe magnet”. I knew this is it! enough is enough! today is the day…
With my father i knew it’ll be easy or at least easier. He was a devoted fan of “queer as folk” TV series back in those days so the ground was set. The minute he came back home, i told him. “Don’t worry we are all good” he replied and while he was climbing up the stairs to his room he mentioned that the only thing he is disappointed about, is that I didn’t clean the mess i left in his room…
With my mother it was much harder…I couldn’t face her directly so I wrote a letter and my brother gave it to her….she didn’t take it well. I was expecting her empathy, her full support. Instead she sent me to a shrink. She thought I was confused and that it would go away. She didn’t tell any of her friends. Our relationship became extremely hard. I would shout and act aggressively. I couldn’t accept myself until she would accept me. At some point, I had to get away from her until I came to terms with myself. Only then, I could bring her back into my life.
I guess it’s true what they say; once you go out of the closet, your parents go in. At least for my mom…
Then Boaz came… my lotto winning ticket!
It’s amazing how everybody loves him. Everywhere he goes he glows with positive energy.
My family adores him… sometimes I think they like him even more than they like me.
He is the ideal groom. And he loves me so much! He chooses me.
I never thought that anybody would love me this way.
If someone like Boaz loves me then I must be o.k.
We are together for four years now. Boaz wants children very much. I am not ready for it yet but for him I am willing… No more than two my love :)

PEACE it’s VIRAL
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.
