True Peace evolves from within. . Change is inevitable. Let go of that which does not serve in the name of Peace. Children are our future and they prefer Love, Peace and Joy.

In South Africa we learnt that when you cast aside fear, forgive and move forward with courage: anything is possible!

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. Thks Elders. All together WE CAN.

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

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.

Young children should grow in with dreams and hopes, not hate and fear. Your efforts can only create a sense of urgency for this next generation. Bring the mothers together to create a healthy dialog

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.

Peace constitutes an inescapable imperative the world over and the Middle East is no exception. We need a world where people compete not in killing each other but in loving each other and in sharing.

This situation concerns me deeply, and I have contacted President Obama with a link to your statement, urging him to act on it. I pray that this situation can be resolved peacefully.

Tolerance and respect are human virtues and peace is a human right. Thanks to the Elders and to my elders for their support and their values. Let us pass it to the younger generations.

I sincerely hope your mission is successful and those people stop fighting in the Holy Land. I oppose all violence, even non-physical violence.

Blessings and Aloha, thank you Elders for making a journey for World Peace. My prayer is for the children and the Earth to be cared for - everywhere. When we put our hearts in charge it will happen.

Hungry, wounded and dispossessed children will not grow with peaceful ideas on their minds. PEACE needs to be understood by children as a source of security, love and nutrition.

Last time you came and preached to the choir. We in the peace camp love you all, but you must engage with the opponents of peace on both sides, settlers and jihadists.

I hosted the Elders dialogue today at Government house in Jerusalem. The path to peace is there to grasp through women and children of the coming generations. The choice is yours!

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 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 wish Israeli and Palestinian leaders opened up their hearts for love and peace in this land which -although it seems completely impossible- should and could be the actual source of 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.

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.

A true and just peace can only benefit all. Each of us were made in the image of God, each one deserving to a life free from fear, humiliation, pain and suffering.

The Elders’ visit casts a powerful moral clarity. Clearly, our destiny—Palestinians and Israelis—is to live together, as equals. Please call for boycotts, divestment, and sanctions now.

Let's learn to listen to each other with our hearts. Free yourself from hatred. We are no different than you. Be respectful and coexist peacefully. Thank you, The Elders. God Bless.
