Message from the Facebook page of the (unofficial) Iranian embassy in Jerusalem:
Jerusalem Day is approaching… and as many of us know, is indeed a holiday, happy but also tense.
Over the years, there are those who have celebrate it in a way that creates hatred instead to focus on the positive – To acknowledge and appreciate the multiple cultures and religions and people who deeply care for Jerusalem.

We need your help in locating contacts in Tehran (Amman and Cairo). In addition, if there are those of you who can volunteer a few hours and take part in the project (the day before or on the day itself).
For those who want to register and greet – firstname.lastname@example.org
May we find a way to create together, and build a relationship of trust!
What message do the latest missile tests by Iran send to Israel, and to the international community? Why is Iran carrying out these missile tests now? What implications will they have for the nuclear agreement and for Israel? Who is gaining the upper hand in Iran: the government or the regime? How should Israel view the recent developments in Iran ?
These are some of the questions answered by the Israeli panelists in Jerusalem, which were:
