Israel Loves Iran founder Ronny Edry chose love over fear, when he shared via Facebook an image of himself holding his daughter waving an Israeli flag, with the caption, "Iranians, we love you. We will never bomb your country." Thus Ronny unwittingly started a movement of citizens at the grassroots level sharing messages of love and connecting with each other for the first time on social media. Check out Ronny's work on the Israel Loves Iran facebook page facebook.com/israellovesiran and his inspiring TED talk, ted.com/talks/israel_and_iran_a_love_story.html.

In this video, Euphrates Institute Vice-President Rebecca Tobias presents Ronny with the Visionary of the Year award and Ronny takes Q&A from the audience.
