Message of support

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

Peace is truly a working effort, while war and hatred seem to come easily. Our job is to show our children that peace is worth our greatest effort.

Both sides, Israelis and Palestinians deserve to live in peace and recognize each other existence. Israelis to give back the 1967 occupied lands and Palestinians to acknowledge the state of Israel.

Great initiative, hope that you will succeed! I work on the West Bank as project leader in an Israeli/Palestinian cooperative and I know this is what lots of people want!

I have researched concentration camp systems (from 1933) using own funds. Millions being spent on Holocaust studies each year need to also consider contemporary situation in Palestine, and humanity.

In the midst of so much confusion and pain, we must learn to love each other and only then will our pain cease to be of any importance. We've so much work to do; the time is now! Thank you Elders!

Peace is an activity, not a place or an end--it's an ongoing process of connection and conversation and exploration. And I can think of no better work to be engaged in. Thank you, each, so, so much.

Dear Collegues, 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

It is time to move forward. Israel must recognise the State of Palestine on the 1967 border, Jerusalem internationalized. Palestine will recognize Israel.

Peace can be achieved if the Palestinian and the Israelis agreed to live together as equal.All i want for my people n Gaza is to live with dignity and to be free of all the restrictions around them.

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.

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.

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.

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.

All my hopes are with the young people of Gaza. That they will continue believing in their future as the world doesn't make it easy on them.
