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.
It is a beautiful and powerful stand for peace and prosperity, there is hope knowing that men and women such as the elders with years of experience and wisdom under their belt creating a movement.
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

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!
There is an historic opportunity for Peace. Palestinians and Israelis should seize it, for their own sake, and that of their children.
The U.S. should not wait two years. It should recognize Palestine de facto NOW.

Releasing and letting go of the past is the first step towards forgiveness, understanding and the realization of Peace. The future is about all of us becoming ONE humanity ONE heart.

For there to be peace there is a need to recognise past pain. To heal the pain we need understanding. To succeed we need to know that all of our needs as fellow human beings are much the same.
Dear all one heartily request to you all please don’t create any humour on Ayodhya Verdict thats only effect the general public only and please pass this msg as many as you can
It has been said that until the children of the Middle East sleep soundly in their beds, neither will children around the world. Please join us in this historic opportunity for peace.
Thanks for all the work that has been done and best wishes for the future. Here's hoping you can get everyone back to their roots and back to the ground.
Free the soil, free the people.
Lutherans in the Holy Land and in the US are working tirelessly for peace for Israelis and Palestinians. This is a calling for all Christians to work energetically for peace and reconciliation.
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 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.
Peace making is too important to be left to politicians alone. It needs the active, sustained involvement of all sectors of society - civil society, business, young people, women's groups - supported by all international friends of peace and justice.
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.
Seems obvious that Israel has given much and gained little. Has Hamas renounced its desire to destroy Israel? The international community needs to hold both sides accountable, not just Israel.
If the U.S.A. would begin a policy of Loving and Giving vs. Fighting and Taking, we will see Peace Globally to include the Middle East.
Craig Davies Metteauer
Peace will only come about if ordinary Israelis and Palestinians do something they might not typically do: reach out to the other, the stranger, interact and find common ground.

I was honoured to participate in the lunch yesterday and inspired by the message of hope and encouragement you bring. May G-d bless you and all of us with success in the mission of peace-making.
Rabbi Yehiel Grenimann
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.
Peace takes so much more courage than war. Understanding takes so much more work than intolerance. Getting started is harder than doing something. Be brave enough to be different.
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.
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.
Jayaraman Rajah Iyer
Let us hope that you can inspire the people of Palestine and the people of Israel to rise up and demand peace despite all the obstacles and rhetoric that the politicians rely on to get elected
The only way to consider a real future is through peace. Only when people relate to each other through respect and admiration will we know peace.
When we have justice for women in the Middle East, peace will be the collateral benefit.
Even if we have different nationality, religions we are all part of the world. We should care and love each other always.....
Peace is build, over time and skillful hands of all of us. Palestinians and Israelis have the concrete it takes to piece together peace blocks in the middle the East the World need to support this.
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.
