In yet another display of the Herculean power of change social media is capable of, a campaign on Facebook started by an Israeli couple is now starting to pay dividends.

“Israel Loves Iran”, a campaign started by Ronny Edry and his wife, Michal Tamir to have Iranians respond to posters that Israelis are plastering around, stating emphatically: “Iranians, we will never bomb your country, we [heart] you,” is garnering responses from Iranians who are showing up on their Facebook page.

Each poster includes the following caption: "To the Iranian people, To all the fathers, mothers, children, brothers and sisters, For there to be a war between us, first we must be afraid of each other, we must hate. I'm not afraid of you, I don't hate you. I don t even know you. No Iranian ever did me no harm."

“My Israeli friends, I do not hate you; I do not want war. Love, Peace,” was the familiar theme in the responses by Iranians to the new group page, many of whom who concealed parts of their faces with veils to avoid being recognized by Iranian authorities, and possible arrest.

“I am really happy to get to know you and people like you, and hope to find more people like you. Here in Iran the situation is complicated and many people hate the governments and their bullshit,” said an unknown Iranian in a poster he published.
