Iran: You are not my enemy!

We see it everyday, every year, every generation... Someone, somewhere, generally in power, but not always.

Publicly making displays of a commitment of hate-disgust-threats toward a person, people or Countries.

Sometimes it is fueled by Fear, sometimes Special Interests, other times; Money and Greed. Whatever the reason may be, a Single person or a single subset of people do not always speak for a whole population.

However, such deeds and actions still reflect badly upon the Population itself because these Persons, People, Leaders what have you, are seen as or are representatives of the whole.

As an American Citizen, I have seen what Special Interests, Money and Greed have done to not only our Country but those our Government and leaders have deemed Criminal or Terrorists.

And for the Majority of Americans, myself included; those who represent us no longer have our best interests at heart nor do they speak for the whole anymore.

And as American Citizens, we are a multi-cultural Melting pot of personalities, Faiths, Colors, and Politics.

What we hold most dear, (though it does not seem apparent when we are viewed via our Leaders), is the freedom of others and as such the non-interference into people, places, and Countries, as long as we are not threatened ourselves.

The years long deliberate interference into cultures and places not our own.. not for the sake of any real threat, but for the sake of power and money. Has caused the United States of America, its Allies and well the rest of the World to be in the position it is currently in.

We can roll through the list of conspiracies, but the obvious nature of things is becoming clearer each and every day now. Our leaders, whether in America or some other G-8 nation or any other as it may be... do not have the best interests of anyone involved except that of the ones in power.

Simply.. war makes money for the war makers, and it is one of many paths toward systematic depopulation of the planet.

As a whole we Americans do not support these policies, nor do we agree with them, (Whether we are Non-partisan, Right or Left). We want like most everyone else on the planet wants, The freedom to live our lives peaceably and do the things that are prevalent in our cultures like faith, business, Collegiate studies and anything else that makes us happy that does not infringe upon the rights of someone else.

Iran has never been a real threat to the United States of America, never has been. Iran has also signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation's treaty, So why can't they have nuclear power to help grow their Country and benefit their people.

This is not to say that threats being stated by Iran toward us or our allies shouldn't be taken seriously... However in the grand scheme of things the U.S. has been the usurper in most all cases including in recent years.

The Iranian people are not a threat, in fact they are really no different from you or I. I have seen and read and watched videos from Iranian peoples, and they do not want war with the U.S. either.

It is just our Governments playing chess with all our lives for the sake of their personal gain.

We Americans are doing what we can, to prevent any outcome that could  or would lead to war. We are trying very hard to change our leadership so that issues like Iraq and Afghanistan, Viet-Nam and other places no longer occur or have to see their innocent people killed because some select rich and powerful people decided it would profit their pocket-book.

I want the Iranian peoples to know and understand that I do not see you as a threat, a enemy, nor do I hate you, or dislike you or your culture.

I may disagree with your state religion, but that does not mean I would ever want to prevent you from practicing it either.

I am an American Citizen, and I do not mean you the Iranians any harm, in fact I'd rather be your friend and have good maybe even great future relations with you and your great country.

Know that there are thousands if not hundreds of thousands here in America just like me, striving for this same goal.

It benefits no common man to war with his neighbor under any pretense other than actual defense.

We are a World community now, and we need to start acting like one. Would I fire bomb my neighbors house? No I would call the police if I were having a problem, on the world stage this would be a World court or some kind of mediation, but threats against Iran and other places and people, only serves to cause fear and fear of a thing only serves those who are controlling such fear.

Let us be friends and work toward a common goal of sequestering our leaders from this harmful path, in hopes of a brighter future for both our great nations.

Please help us spread the message. (
"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. I never even met an Iranian…Just one in Paris in a museum. Nice dude.

I see sometime here, on the TV, an Iranian. He is talking about war.
I’m sure he does not represent all the people of Iran.
If you see someone on your TV talking about bombing you …be sure he does not represent all of us.

I’m not an official representative of my country. but I know the streets of my town, I talk with my neighbors, my family's, my friends and in the name of all these people …we love you.
We mean you no harm.
On the contrary, we want to meet, have some coffee and talk about sports.

To all those who feel the same, share this message and help it reach the Iranian people

My name is Ronny, I’m 41 years old. I’m a father, a teacher, a Graphic Designer.
I’m an Israeli citizen and I need your help.

Lately, in the news, we’ve been hearing about a war coming while we, the people are sitting, watching like it has nothing to do with us.
On March 15th, I posted a poster on Facebook. The message was simple.
Iranians. We love you. We will never bomb your country

Within 24 hours, thousands of people shared the poster on Facebook, and I started receiving messages from Iran.
The next day, we got featured on TV and newspapers, proving that the message was traveling. Fast.

Please help us prevent this war by spreading this message.
We need your help raising money in order to buy media: billboards, major magazines, TV ads and finally Times Square screens. We want everybody to understand that there will be no war."
