Meme Alert

The Washington Post reports:
As Israel’s government issued a warning Monday over Iran’s nuclear program, some citizens of both countries were talking to one another in much sweeter tones online: The love fest started after an Israeli couple made a Facebook page and blog Saturday, issuing an online call for peace. “Iranians, we will never bomb you country. We heart you,” posters uploaded to the sites read. Hours later, the responses from Iranians started pouring in. In one, a woman from Iran uploaded a poster with the caption: “My Israeli friends, I don’t hate you, I don’t want war.”
And as in all things internet, the parodies began instantaneously.
