Peace is build, over time and skillful hands of all of us. Palestinians and Israelis have the concrete it takes to piece together peace blocks in the middle the East the World need to support this.
you must never lie, never prevaricate. you must be aware that there can be no progress when the palestinian condition worsens. you know the current israeli administration and who heads it. please..
I am personally advising the United Nations Security Council to bear with the works which the Elders are doing just for peaceful solution & negotiations with the Palestinians & others

The world must look to the youth of, not just Gaza, but everywhere to make a difference. We owe youth so much more than terrorism. They are our future.
The Elders is the most important group I believe has ever been formed. It is a reminder that the world must listen to wisdom if humanity is to heal its wounds and embrace a positive future.

Peace comes when the separate communities work together for the common good. In the case of Israel/palestine, the focus should be on water. http://bit.ly/95zTCa
Thank you for being there and speaking out. You give us all hope.
Freedom for everyone...this is the true sense of the life......
I believe that people around the world need to know more about how family's, especially children, suffer due to the lack of Peace around the world. Ignorance truly denies others of bliss.
I sincerely hope and wish that, under the kind and wise guidance of the Elders, common Israelis and Palestinians will make friends and say no to hate-instigators and extremists on both sides!
PEACE in the world starts in my heart. I promise to have happier thoughts and to love myself more each day. Thus, I change the outside by changing inside.
The best way to end war is to make it a less profitable business. This is (besides getting rid of religion) the most crucial point - where our beloved governments constantly and willingly fail.
Peace takes so much more courage than war. Understanding takes so much more work than intolerance. Getting started is harder than doing something. Be brave enough to be different.
Peace is the absence of conflicts, chaos, violence, and destruction. Peace is the presence of caring, love, kindness, mindfulness, goodwill, harmony, collaboration, unity, and compassion.
Peace making is too important to be left to politicians alone. It needs the active, sustained involvement of all sectors of society - civil society, business, young people, women's groups - supported by all international friends of peace and justice.
Real peace comes from living harmoniously with one another. The 'reality on the ground' won't go away so isn't it time to work towards a single state solution?
Praying, working, donating and always always hoping for peace in a region I love and respect. Please don't give up. I'm pulling for you all.

There can only be peace when the governments of the world stop the war machine and stop making weapons of death. When the power of love overthrows those who love power, only then will there be peace X

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 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.

Thank you to The Elders for getting out the truth about the oppression of the Palestinians and working for a peaceful resolution. For too many decades, the Western world hasn't paid attention.
Militarizing development, research and science and maintaining an arms economy for geopolitical, corporate and private gain has clearly become an unsustainable concept.

'Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.'
'Do unto others as you would have them do to you'.
We learn this simple wisdom as children, yet somehow as we 'grow' we leave it behind. Peace!
Shalom. Salem. Peace. May we all take this opportunity to recognise the unity behind the schisms that have divided us for so long.
The conflict in the Middle East has been going on for far to long; and far too many lives ruined or lost; For God's sake it must stop now.

If you were the parent of all mankind, how would you teach your children respect and loyalty?
I'm so grateful for The Elders. You bring together the wisdom of some of the greatest leaders and thinkers of our time to guide people towards peace and temperance.

The only way to consider a real future is through peace. Only when people relate to each other through respect and admiration will we know peace.
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.
