Sadly, the meetings in Europe this week aren't leading to a breakthrough to halt Israeli settlements in Palestine and make way for the peace process to recommence. http://bit.ly/o9Cre

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.
Thank you Hanar Shaat for the wonderful article you published here on October 18, 2010. You have the vision.
Women are the key to building peace. Women's participation and representation is an integral part of any peace process. Women will bring constructive, creative and sustainable solutions to the table.
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!
True Peace evolves from within. . Change is inevitable. Let go of that which does not serve in the name of Peace. Children are our future and they prefer Love, Peace and Joy.
Peace requires courage, strength and wisdom. It's a continuous struggle for human rights and freedoms. Peace is also an internal struggle of every person on Earth to overcome selfishness and fear.

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.

Tolerance, Respect for Human Rights and Peace, can't no be achieve separately. Our world without those 3 elements is just unsustainable.
Since the majority wants peace (95%?), there is opportunity to explore potential for cultural unity: http://abc4all.net/culturalunitypotential.htm

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.

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

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.

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..
I cannot express it any better than Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh: "Peace is not simply the absence of violence; it is the cultivation of understanding, insight and compassion combined with action."
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.
Young children should grow in with dreams and hopes, not hate and fear. Your efforts can only create a sense of urgency for this next generation. Bring the mothers together to create a healthy dialog
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
Last time you came and preached to the choir. We in the peace camp love you all, but you must engage with the opponents of peace on both sides, settlers and jihadists.
Here in Virginia, I send my prayers of Love and Peace to ALL people in the Middle East and want you to know that you are not alone in your journey of Hope and Healing.

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.
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.
Thank you for being there and speaking out. You give us all hope.
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.
Genuine peace should be the primary goal of all nations. Regarding Israel and the Palestinians, the goal should be the same as long as both have security and complete sovereignty.
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
The only way to eliminate your enemy is to make them friends.
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.

Prayers and work for peace in our household don't stop after 30 years. We will not give up.
