Event Description:
Ronny Edry of Israel accidentally created an online movement for peace in the Middle East when he posted a Facebook image that declared "Iranians, we will never bomb your country."

He's a graphic designer, teacher, father and frequent Facebook updater.  While he often posted images on the site without much fanfare, in March of 2012 one of his images garnered international attention.  The image showed himself and his daughter, along with the words, "Iranians, we will never bomb your country.  We heart you."

The image became a catalyst for dialogue between the people of two nations on the brink of war. 

Edry grew up in Paris, France, and has lived in Israel since 1989.  He teaches Visual Communication at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design and is the author of several graphic novels.  He is also the owner and founder of "Pushpin," a prep school for art and design.
