Today there was an article in one of the popular papers you were interviewed by, the biggest local newspaper in Tel Aviv. The article mentions how your lecture is the main reason for all the [new Israeli] vegans. This is without any doubt the biggest article/project on this subject ever made in Israel.

I’m 19 from Israel, and been vegan for two months now since watching your lecture. You’re great and you are pushing tons of Israelis to veganism. You changed my life and opened my eyes. I found your lecture by mistake but was transfixed to the screen and enjoyed every minute of it. I knew during the lecture that I was going to be vegan. The day I’ll never forget is the day I went vegan. I tell everyone around me about veganism and the suffering the animals go through. You’re absolutely right about what the animals go through. Each day is Treblinka. Never give up. You are starting a revolution here in Israel.

I am a meat lover! I love to cook and fucking love steaks. I saw your speech yesterday and now I am FUCKED! I am 33, from Israel, and I am at a crossroads in my life because of you. I love animals too much! I am a hypocrite and I know it. You are a hero.

I’m 15.5 years old girl from Israel. You are the smartest guy I have ever seen. Today was the first day I saw your lecture and I AM AMAZED. After watching you, I said, “I have to stop eating this.” You opened my eyes. I will publish your video everywhere I can, and try to help make change. I wish there were a few more Garys in the world.

I live in Israel and when I saw your presentation it made me cry. I’ll be a vegan from now on. And I’ll talk to all my friends at school about it.
