There is an historic opportunity for Peace. Palestinians and Israelis should seize it, for their own sake, and that of their children.
From the American on the Jewish boat to Gaza. "Palestine I Hear You" We can no longer meet hate with hate but rather look into the eyes of our enemy and see ourselves.

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?
The greatest teachers in history who have created positive social change have all had one thing in common: the Golden Rule. Give peace a chance. Thank you for your work!
Not what I'd like to say: Israel’s National Security Uzi Arad doesn't believe in non-military options w Iran. http://bit.ly/47vVMl

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.

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.
Welcome! messengers of peace. Your love & concern are empowering our hope and vision for a peaceful future in our region. We all know that it is possible and its the only way!

we are all attached atomically to the universe-
we are bonded biologically to all life-
we are connected chemically to this planet-
we should be astounded,awed, humbled and understand we are tenants
Like the wonderful movie "The Lemon Tree", we all want to live peacefully. Its just a matter of walking in your neighbor's shoes...and letting your neighbor walk in yours.

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.
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
Seyed Muhammad Shirazi
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.
Peace is possible. Israelis and Palestinians deserve it and can achieve it. Ordinary people can make a difference. Make your voice heard now.

Men and women are both incredibly important to bring peace to the middle east. It takes both of us to make the world go around and we are falling down on the job. We must work together!
Borders are for administrative purposes only. Each granule of sand is the property entrusted to humanity. Humane Society across the border shall break the barrier.

each journey begins with one foot in front of the other and an hand offered in peace.
To the Elders thank you. It has been long since we have awaited you. Soon your presence will insight a movement towards an official moral governing body to defend our right to peaceful coexistence.
Ian Paul McKenzie
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.
You elders are showing us how to build a better world community. Please keep working as a force for compassionate listening and taking a stand for what's right. Thank you.

Thank you for the brilliant webcast highlighting the challenges and opportunities for peace. It is essential that we keep the bright light of truth focused on reaching a true solution. Well done!
Thank you for being here for all of us.
May succsess be on your way.
May people go on your path.
All the best
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

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.
Gandhi said "Be the change you wish to see in the world". The Elders are leading the way. Let us follow.
In our time, peace should not be a radical concept. Leading hearts and minds to believe that peace is the most natural choice will bring about lasting change.

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
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.
I hope all the world would be in Peace. Without War, Birds Would Be Singing. The peace from two sides not from one side so we should come together in one point.
Ahed Abu Sharekh
We are all on the same planet, same species all the divisions are man made. There are no invisible lines in the sand. Live now, not in the past, foundations for a future of harmony, peace, love.
