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?
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 Elders is a small step for humanity to follow, and to understand that by peace only we can all live together happily ever after.

I cannot express it any better than Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh: "Peace is not simply the absence of violence; it is the cultivation of understanding, insight and compassion combined with action."
The future - they are our children -
Have you noticed how smart they are?
- they never hold grudges -
It's time we grow up - by re-writing the History books - to obtain peace.
Violence and rhetoric is blindly directed to an opposing zone. Retaliation seems to reap more intense and cheaper cognitive rewards than investing effort in addressing the systemic sources of conflict.
Our species as a whole seems to be lacking a common purpose for focus. I sincerely hope we can get past that 0.1% difference between us all to realize how important that 99.9% commonality to be.

Thank you to everyone who is working and praying for peace and justice, and especially to the Elders.
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.
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.
Don't give up, ever. There is more that links us together than divides us. We must all find our common humanity.
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.
