NOT READY TO DIE IN YOUR WAR
“NOT READY TO DIE IN YOUR WAR”
On August 2012, while the voice and calls of war became louder and louder, Ronny Edry and Michal Tamir uploaded a new poster with a new message:
We are millions of people who will be hurt. Will be drafted, will have to fight, lose our lives, our relatives. We, parents from Tel Aviv and Teheran, will have to run with our children to the shelters and pray the missiles will miss us. But they will fall somewhere, on someone. Those last few days the sound of war is becoming louder. So once again, load and clear, we are saying – NO to this war, We are saying to the people of Iran: We Love You”
ONCE AGAIN, WITHIN HOURS
The page received thousands of Likes and supporting comments. Hundreds of people from all over the world started sending their pictures with the same message.
In the first campaign, Iranians living in Iran were afraid to reveal themselves.
Not this time!
They posted their photos with this same loving message,
confidently facing the camera, stating their names, and even the city they live in.
I was born in Cairo, Egypt.
My mum is from the Philippines and my dad from Ghana.
I’m an Israeli
At the age 6, we moved to Israel. we lived in Jaffa, surrounded by Jews, Arabs and other international kids from my school.
In 2006, for just one month, the ministry of interior set a law: All kids that came before the age of 10 and were living in Israel for over 10 years, could get a citizenship.
I was a perfect match!
After years of living in fear, hiding from everyone, i could finally SETTLE DOWN, walk the streets with confidence, create myself a real home.

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.
