No to War with Iran!

The Israeli peace movement recently held a rally at the home of Ehud Barak, minister of defense.  They produced this phenomenal poster displaying juaunty images of Netanyahu and Barak with the caption: Gog and Magog–NO to War with Iran!  Amen to that!

    which Israeli peace movement held the rally?
    I can’t see a logo or a name in the poster.

      I didn’t call it a “movement.” I said peace activists held a rally. They’ll be holding one daily until war breaks out.

        The newspapers in Israel did not mention such rally, and I haven’t seen this poster anywhere else.
        Usually, these posters have a small logo, or some other indication for who is behind them.
        I’ve seen many similar (in style) posters from the “Zionist Left” (השמאל הציוני / HaSmol HaTzioni / SmoLeumi) movement.

        Were any pictures taken at the rally? I’m curious to see the signs that were held there.

          Here is an article from an Israeli newspaper about the rally. There is a photo included with signs that were held there:

          Protesters say ‘no to war in Iran’

          Some 200 people gathered Sunday evening in front of Defense Minister Ehud Barak’s residence in Tel Aviv, to protest against an Israeli strike in Iran.

          The demonstrators called out: “No to war” and “No to a strike in Iran.”

          Participants included left wing politicians and activists MK Dov Khenin (Hadash), Eldad Yaniv and director Doron Tsabari, as well as many others.

        You actually did call it a movement in your initial post. You referenced the “Israeli peace movement” in the first sentence. Unless you were quoting someone else. If so, that is not clear.

        In any case, let’s hope the movement (or whatever it is) keeps on growing!
