Earlier this month, an Israeli couple unintentionally began an anti-war campaign when they uploaded a poster to Facebook that read "Iranians, we will never bomb your country. We [heart] you."

Ronny Edry, an Israeli graphic designer based in Tel Aviv, posted a photo on his facebook page one day and soon the video became viral and many responded across the globe.

Edry says that hundreds of positive messages came from people in Iran.

 

"My idea was simple, I was trying to reach the other side. There are all these talks about war, Iran is coming to bomb us and we bomb them back, we are sitting and waiting. I wanted to say the simple words that this war is crazy," said Edry.
