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

I don't know what to say; for I don't understand. Is it for me to understand? What I know is; there is one God. Strive for peace. Hatred, bigotry, killing, and murder are not the things of God.

Peace is personal, first of all. When we have peace in our hearts and within our families we can do more to create a peaceful world.

I know greatness when I see it and I clearly see it in the life of Nelson Mandela. His stand against apartheid made an incalculable difference not only in South Africa but throughout the world.

To Tutu -- the dislocation of Mandela's presence is in our memories not in his body, yet I still understand the honor you cherish him with. This is my mother, part of half the sky raisers.

Madiba showed the people of the world that great nations are built with moral courage and collective strength, with justice and equal opportunity, with love and forgiveness, with vision and wisdom.

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.

Mandela's 1990 visits to the UK and US among others after his release reinforces my commitment to Love..to teach myself to love both those who stood by you and those who didn't! An act of GOD!

Please continue and increase your work for the recognition in the United Nations Assembly of Palestine as a non-member state - on the way to full state membership through the Security Council!

I did not know Elders exist. Now I feel there is hope for so many people like Hanar Shaat who think one better world is possible. Thks Elders. All together WE CAN.

At this time of the year, it is particularily poignant that there is such pain and division in the place where Jesus was born. I hold all of the Palestinian and Israeli people in my prayers.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

As an American Jew I opposed the right of the Apartheid regime in South Africa to exist, just as I oppose the right of the Apartheid regime in Israel to exist. Racism has no right to exist.

The Two States solution is Not a solution for the conflict in the Middle East. The real solution is necessarily more creative, and absolutely larger in scope and depth. Please cf lexeevictor.hpage.com
