‘Peace is the only battle worth waging.’ - Albert Camus. Protest with a smile at injustice and with calm determination. Ádh mór oraibh!
Peace is possible, however can only be possible and attainable when those who wants peace make a true commitment that love will prevail, and respect for the rights of others is considered paramount.
It is the individual person who is alive--you. Create government to run for ALL the people to smooth the way. Educate children at an early age not just civics but what gov. is by using a dictionary.
Thank you to everyone who is working and praying for peace and justice, and especially to the Elders.
Can we learn to live and let live, respect our differences and celebrate our similarities? We are all connected to each other and share this planet. I support the peaceful protesters.
each journey begins with one foot in front of the other and an hand offered in peace.
I know peace will come - and it will be brought about by mums and dads who are brave enough to create a new future for their children by letting go of the past. I applaud you and send my love.
Militarizing development, research and science and maintaining an arms economy for geopolitical, corporate and private gain has clearly become an unsustainable concept.

Shalom. Salem. Peace. May we all take this opportunity to recognise the unity behind the schisms that have divided us for so long.
Thanks for all the work that has been done and best wishes for the future. Here's hoping you can get everyone back to their roots and back to the ground.

Sharing will bring justice. Justice will bring peace.
Sharing will save Israel and Palestine.
Sharing will save the world.
I believe in the power of social and political debate in order to solve conflicts in a peaceful way. People are the backbone of this world, hurting them touches the world as a whole.

If the majority of people want peace, then it follows that, just as is being done by A Better Community For All, there is potential to explore cultural unity no matter what the conflict.

It is time we put aside our differences and reached out to our brothers and sisters in every Nation across the World and worked together for lasting peace.
We obtained peace in Northern Ireland through dialogue. I pray that one day a lasting and sustainable solution can be obtained in the Middle East through similar, peaceful dialogue.
Pursuing peace with all men as admonished by the Holy Bible is a creed that all men should live by. People from all over the world are one regardless of race, education and economic independence.

We salute the ELDERS for now deciding to intervene collectively to resolve the Palestine-Israel conflict, which is the central geo-political crisis of our times.
Wonderful to see our wise Elders meet and act with communities in Palestine and Israel.
I cannot think of another current example of the human rights abuses occuring in Palestine.
The only way to eliminate your enemy is to make them friends.
Grief can interrupt the abiity to build peaceful relationships. It can even obstruct the ability to see that possibility. Healing grief, then, is an integral part of the peacemaking process.
Peace will only come about if ordinary Israelis and Palestinians do something they might not typically do: reach out to the other, the stranger, interact and find common ground.

The Islamic movement must adopt peace as a slogan, for it is the symbol and motto of Islam, peace of the world, of the country, of the family, and peace of the whole society

When we have justice for women in the Middle East, peace will be the collateral benefit.
You know there really is still a chance for peace and that chance will definitely increase if we each do our piece. So let’s make peace -- in our homes, in our own hearts, in our relationships, in our communities, in all of our dealings and in the world. Peace be with us all.

I did not know Elders exist. Now I feel there is hope for so many people like Hanar Shaat who think one better world is possible.
