ISRAELIS SEND VIDEO MESSAGES OF SUPPORT TO PEOPLE OF IRAN, REACHING MILLIONS

(Jerusalem, Israel -- January 3, 2018) -- Messages of support for the people of Iran have poured into StandWithUs social media from dozens of Israelis and Iranians living in Israel in Hebrew and in Farsi.  These include the StandWithUs students who are spreading messages of peace at their universities as participants in the Israel Fellowship .

One Iranian-Israeli has to hide his identity:  “My dear Iranian friends, We, the Israeli people like you very much, we are with you and ask almighty God for your success and pride. United for peace with us and the whole world.  https://www.facebook.com/StandWithUs/videos/10155332365907689/

A video showing demonstrators shouting “We don't want an Islamic Republic” and “Death to Hizbollah” has over 3 million impressions on the main StandWithUs Facebook page.  https://www.facebook.com/StandWithUs/videos/10155325123337689/

Iranians have responded with positive comments. One posted “Thank you for your kind words. The regime uses Iranians' tax to support your enemies for two reasons: Making a scarecrow of Israel will distract people from paying attention where need is at home, and to use your brutally savage enemies on their standby payroll to terrorize and crack down on people of Iran when they protest. Your internal issues are your business. Gaza is none of Iran's business.”

Another said: “As an Iranian-American I greatly appreciate the love and support our Israeli friends are showing toward us Thank you soooo very much we love you too. Iranian people are not your enemy we do not support the corrupt tyrant regime and like you we look forward to freedom and justice. Thank you for supporting my people as they liberate 🙌🏼 much love from America ️”

Michael Dickson, Executive Director of StandWithUs Israel said, "I couldn't be prouder of our StandWithUs community here in Israel and these powerful messages. The Islamic Republic of Iran is a brutal tyranny that has a history of threatening Israel through its proxy Hezbollah, as well as government calls to wipe Israel off the map. But Israelis are standing with those who suffer most from the Iranian regime - everyday Iranians themselves - and have messages of love and support for them and their struggle for freedom.”

Roz Rothstein, CEO and co-founder of StandWithUs said: “Many Israelis remember a time when their country was close with Iran, before the current regime took over. The outpouring of support from the Israeli people for the people of Iran once again demonstrates their humanity and sends a message to the Iranians that the future could be a better one.”
