If we operate from the premise that novellas must pack a book's worth of awesome in a slim page count, then it would logically follow that a novella authored by two top-notch writers would be only that much more badass. That's the view we're taking on The Burning Light, a new book com

Israel-loves-Iran. Iran-loves-Israel.

This started as a simple picture in Facebook by an Israeli designer who wanted to let Iranians know he has nothing but love for them.
It turned into a movement that was featured on CNN, Aljazira, and all the way to China. 
People from Iran reached out to Israelis via pictures and text, expressing their detest with their government's propaganda, wishing they could visit each other soon.
They started meeting in real life in Israel and in Europe. People who grew up hating Israel because of what they were told, flew to Israel to meet with Israelis and discovered they have a lot in common.

HERE'S THE DESIGNER TALKING AT TED ON HOW IT STARTED
This brought tears to my eyes. I hope it touches you too.
