Shalom. Salem. Peace. May we all take this opportunity to recognise the unity behind the schisms that have divided us for so long.
*love thy enemy not just to be your friend but more so your brother,for he is*
i have walked kids along the hills of south Hebron harrassed and threatened by settlers for walking the hills of Hebron
if we are all the children of G_D, then how could he love any of else greater or lesser? We are all the chosen of G_D and we are loved unconditionally and without bias. Peace is...Inevitable
Peace pacts have never worked throughout history. The formation of a society of peoples (such as the EU) of disparate cultures that had been enemies for centuries (such as the EU) can bring peace.
Nick (Klaus) Veltjens
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.

I pray for the little children of Gaza. I know many of them have lost their homes and family members in the recent conflict. I pray that The Elders can help bring about peace to their troubled land.
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.
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.
Abdullah Al Fadhli
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.
It is time we put aside our differences and reached out to our brothers and sisters in every Nation across the World and worked together for lasting peace.
Keep up the great work, all.
We owe it to the young people of the world to create an environment of peace. To show them that war is a destructive force for the whole of the human race. I support the elders and send them love.
Peace is possible. Israelis and Palestinians deserve it and can achieve it. Ordinary people can make a difference. Make your voice heard now.

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

Pursuing peace with all men as admonished by the Holy Bible is a creed that all men should live by. People from all over the world are one regardless of race, education and economic independence.
Wanda Kenneth Oluka
Life is precious everywhere. My prayers are with the elders and the good work they are doing.
Reaching across human-made borders to our brothers & sisters in Peace. We are One.
If you were the parent of all mankind, how would you teach your children respect and loyalty?
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!
Please consider the world our grandchildren will share, and put aside today's political and economic pressures. Our grandchildren must live in the world we leave them. Our problems are irrelevant.
I am writing from Jerusalem, en route to Gaza. Our project Gaza 24/24 speaks directly to your concerns. It is my hope to collaborate.
Peace , a simply word with a great meaning! Inside this word we are friendship, collaboration, love, union, the sounds of our hearts...Try to follow this word in every moment of our life!
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
Gratitude to the Elders and to all who are working for peace and justice. Thank you.

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.

love peace hope and compassion ..all hope for your mission and power to you .. thankyou for you efforts , please keep trying ..
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.
War has killed millions of beautiful human beings - Yet if a Microbe was found on another planet it would be cherished as a miracle - Peace, respect and tolerance is the only way forward.
All my hopes are with the young people of Gaza. That they will find the courage and inspiration to keep believing in their future as the world doesn't make it easy for them.
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.
