Happy Holidays!

You may or may not know this, but there’s a fantastic facebook group called “Israel Loves Iran” (https://www.facebook.com/israellovesiran). I encourage every peace loving person to join it. Read all about it on The Peace Factory (http://thepeacefactory.org/)!

I’m chiming here for the holidays just to share this lovely video of Christiane Amanpour, one on one, with Israel’s greatest singer – Rita.

Merry Christmas!
Peace out,

Amanpour

By Mick Krever, CNN

There is “no quarrel” between the Iranian and Israeli people, a pop star with a foot in both worlds told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an interview that aired Friday.

Rita Jahanforuz was born in Iran, but has been one of Israel’s most popular singers for nearly three decades.

“You know, it’s between the government or the leaders or something like that,” she said. “I’m very Iranian; and I’m very Israeli. And with my existence, I can show that everything can intertwine with each other, amazingly.”

She is known to her fans simply as “Rita,” and took many of them by surprise when last year she released an album of songs sung entirely in her mother tongue, Farsi.
