Abie Nathan, one man´s peace

The idea of "The Voice of Peace” came to him when he sat at a hotel in Cyprus while gazing at the sea. It was 1967 and from a nearby radio he heard the sounds of the upcoming war. The Arabs bragged about destroying Israel, and the Israeli radio quoted them. "How can I reach out to the people and calm them down" – he thought. "If I had a radio station… I wouldn’t be able to broadcast from Israel and from Cyprus …. Maybe a vessel outside the territorial water of Israel would do it. We shall call it "The Voice of Peace” and talk to the people and reassure them". (here)
