Peace is like love: it can't be taken, it has to be given - and I am the one who has to make the first step.
May your visit give people in the Holy Land the courage to give peace to one another.

There can be no greater purpose in life than to encourage and promote peace among warring factions. I've helped with elections in the ME and know the suffering among all peoples there. Bless you.

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.
Mabel van Oranje
We are all on the same planet, same species, all the divisions are man made. The invisible 'lines in the sand' are illusions. Live in the now not in the past. Peace, love, forgiveness.
Hold peace in your mind, peace in your heart and peace in your actions,we are but a flashbulb in space and time, let your life be remembered for spreading peace and having a wide open heart
Thank you for the brilliant webcast highlighting the challenges and opportunities for peace. It is essential that we keep the bright light of truth focused on reaching a true solution. Well done!
An open apology to the Palestinians and acknowledgment of the mistakes the western world has made in the past, will show respect to all those who suffer, and this will give them hope and strength.
The U.S. should not wait two years. It should recognize Palestine de facto NOW.

An enemy is actually a friend waiting to be made. We found this to be so in South Africa. It will be no different in the Holy land.
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.
Tolerance, Respect for Human Rights and Peace, can't no be achieve separately. Our world without those 3 elements is just unsustainable.
Forgiveness and Love are difficult when differences are long standing. We offer our support to anyone who can overcome their personal hurts and care for other human beings as themselves.

Peace will only come with the return the Prince of Peace.: Yeshua the Messiah / Jesus the Christ. So lift up the Son of Man because all other plans will fail. That's God's plan for peace.

I would like to commend Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu for stating his viewpoint which in fact is a viewpoint that has been long ignored by the international community.
The Children of Israel and the World are our future. Peace evolves from within and the idea of continuing War will be out of reach. Our kids prefer Love, Peace, and Joy!!
I have been in the last 4 years lecturing for Palestinians about the Jewish Holocaust in europe.
i would like to introduce this Jobb to the elders showing its powe to bring peace

South Africa will not be free until Palestine is free. I think this is a Nelson Mandela quote.
Thank you for working so hard for real peace in our global village. I hope for a time when more of us recognise our common humanity rather than the things that divide us. Love and light to all.
Peace can be achieved, but only through dialogue. When we talk to each other face-to-face we realise how much we have in common. Let us talk and we will find that elusive peace.

You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom. Every Palestinian has the right to help himself in the absence of help from anywhere else. Free palestine
We are all members of one large diverse family called Humanity, and by putting your brother's needs before your own you will assure justice and peace in the middle east.
'Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless', said Mother Teresa. May your and my words be like that, so peace, love and respect will be embraced by all hearts!

SEE GOD in all whom you meet, Show Love and Peace to those you Greet, and Allow Goodness to be the Mission of your Feet, for the Journey of Life is Oh So Sweet.

Women are the key to building peace. Women's participation and representation is an integral part of any peace process. Women will bring constructive, creative and sustainable solutions to the table.
Peace requires courage, strength and wisdom. It's a continuous struggle for human rights and freedoms. Peace is also an internal struggle of every person on Earth to overcome selfishness and fear.
Xhabir M. Deralla
Thank you all so very much. With your wisdom, experience and guidance, may the peace process move forward.

Gandhi said "Be the change you wish to see in the world". The Elders are leading the way. Let us follow.
