“I’ve explored many cities in Iran but during my last trip I ran alone from Chogha Zanbil to Shushtar. I took risk and was afraid because a woman alone on a bicycle is still weird in many cultures but my intuition was positive and most of the time all I saw was kindness from people. It’s simply incredible to be fed, to get a bed and an overload of tea and good care by people you have never seen before.”
Every morning I wake up to find messages like these sent to me…Why? Well simply because I run a blog online about Israel. Even if I ran a blog about Syria or Iran with the dictatorship and tyranny going on in those countries, I would never get messages like these.
These threats and comments don’t just attack my homeland and my people, but also me. “I hope you die tonight inshallah” and “dogs are better than Israelis” is just an example of the amount of hate that people have for Israel and the jewish people. No matter your views or opinions on the subject, no human being should be treated this way. By saying these things, only more hate and negative energy is spread into this world. Nothing good comes of it.
I write this today, so we may learn a lesson: to NEVER become one of these people, never let our hearts be filled with so much hatred so that we never treat people lesser than us. So if you are one of these people, please start spreading some much needed love instead of hate into this world, and maybe then can we start to live in peace.
