I sincerely hope and wish that, under the kind and wise guidance of the Elders, common Israelis and Palestinians will make friends and say no to hate-instigators and extremists on both sides!
The entire country' ,from the sea to the river,should be open to both Israelis and Palestinians, enjoying equal rights and rejecting any discrimination. This political entity should be a Condominium,
Ervin Y. Kedar (prof. Ph.D.)
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!
I support all those working tirelessly for a peaceful coexistence. It is important to listen to the concerns and aspirations of a broad range of individuals on both sides.
You know there really is still a chance for peace and that chance will definitely increase if we each do our piece. So let’s make peace -- in our homes, in our own hearts, in our relationships, in our communities, in all of our dealings and in the world. Peace be with us all.
Stands for PEACE
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.
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.

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.

I met with a number of Israeli and Palestinian peace groups back in 2005 and since then I have shared
their work with thousands of Americans who are largely unaware of peace organizations there.
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.

Peace comes out from the barrel of a gun & armed-resistances is contra to each other, might is right is not right, evil to face by evil is evil too, bunch of lies for war or terrorism are not Peace!
Veteran Dr. A. Momin
I am praying for peace for ALL Palestinians and Israelis. It has been too long coming. All children, everywhere, deserve a peaceful future.

Elders I belong to FATA Pakistan where terrorist activities are on high point and we are on direct target of terrorist. I want peace and peace comes when the US Dollars stop to our region.
you must never lie, never prevaricate. you must be aware that there can be no progress when the palestinian condition worsens. you know the current israeli administration and who heads it. please..
We are all on the same planet, same species all the divisions are man made. The invisible 'lines in the sand' are illusions there are no STATES, Mine it's a choice. Look forward make peace.
If the majority of people want peace, then it follows that, just as is being done by A Better Community For All, there is potential to explore cultural unity no matter what the conflict.

May God continue to bless all of you who work on this planet in the name of peace. Our hearts and prayers are with you in your endeavors always!

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.
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.
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.
Grief can interrupt the abiity to build peaceful relationships. It can even obstruct the ability to see that possibility. Healing grief, then, is an integral part of the peacemaking process.
It is the individual person who is alive--you. Create government to run for ALL the people to smooth the way. Educate children at an early age not just civics but what gov. is by using a dictionary.
Albert Schweitzer reminded us that we have become the brothers and sisters of all who suffer. Imagine the power behind our collective voices and action!
There can only be peace when the governments of the world stop the war machine and stop making weapons of death. When the power of love overthrows those who love power, only then will there be peace X
Aaron Patrick Quinn
All of our human needs are the same. Safety for ourselves and our families, ease and peace. When we see our own humanity in others we are better able to find solutions for peace.
Let's learn to listen to each other with our hearts. Free yourself from hatred. We are no different than you. Be respectful and coexist peacefully. Thank you, The Elders. God Bless.
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.
Sharing will bring justice. Justice will bring peace.
Sharing will save Israel and Palestine.
Sharing will save the world.
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.
Johan van den Berg
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.
