Israel Loves Iran
An Online Call for Peace initiated by an Israeli Couple
'Israel loves Iran' is a social media movement whose goal it is to promote peace between the two countries and to bring Israelis and Iranians together. It was initiated by the Israeli, Ronny Edran, who posted a picture of himself and his young daughter on Facebook with a graphic stating, "Iranians, we love you, we will never bomb your country". The photo went viral and achieved the support of 1000 Israelis and Iranians. The campaign is a good example of Cultural Diplomacy in practice, as the main purpose of the movement was to bring the Israelis and Iranians together and to improve the relations between the two countries using social media.
