The Voice of Peace and Marquette Turner Form Partnership

by Marquette Turner Luxury Homes

in Good Causes, Marquette Turner, News & Views, Variety

As part of our ongoing growth in Europe, and in keeping with our commitment to form partnerships with organisations, no matter how diverse, with whom we share mutual principles and beliefs, Marquette Turner is very excited to have formed an ongoing marketing partnership with The Voice of Peace radio stations, having already partnered with the iconic Radio Caroline since 2010.

The Voice of Peace is an icon that goes back to 1973, the year it started its legendary broadcast from the Mediterranean by the late Abie Nathan with the support of 20th Century music icon, John Lennon of the Beatles.

Abie Nathan came up with the idea of a ship at sea broadcasting love peace and good music to the world, while looking at the sea from a hotel in Cyprus. The Voice of Peace immediately became the most listened to radio station in the Mediterranean. The success was enormous, but during the winter time the crew on the ship was at risk, and Abie wanted a license to broadcast from shore, but unfortunately Abie couldn’t achieve it because of political issues.

Ever since the sound of the Voice of Peace sank to the deep waters in 1993, the people in Israel and throughout Europe longed for that sound to be heard again.

The Voice of Peace was unique as it sought to unite people through the love of music, and now with the added benefit of 21st Century technology whilst maintaining their core principles, of promoting peace throughout the world through music.

Marquette Turner is pleased to be able to support The Voice of Peace in their ongoing cause.

To listen to the Voice of Peace via the internet, there are two channels to choose from:
The Israeli site: LISTEN
The European/International site: LISTEN

1967.
Two days before the outbreak of the 1967 six day war, Abie flew an old Auster aircraft from his adopted homeland, Israel, to Port Said to try and talk the Egyptians out of provoking the war, they gave him lunch and then threw him out. After the Arab – Israeli six day war he tried again, and on arriving back home was fined for “having made contact with the enemy”, he refused to pay and spent forty days in prison. Abie than made yet another attempt at a peace mission, this time arriving on a commercial flight. An Israeli court sentenced him to a one years imprisonment in his absence, but despite two visits to Israel since, he was not arrested. Abie then had the idea of setting up a radio station on which both Jew and Arab could freely air their views. He sold his restaurant business (the California) and all his property in Israel and started looking for a ship.
