Thanks for being open and sharing what you are doing. It means a lot to global citizens to see leaders taking a public stand and involving us in their work.
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.
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.
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!

This situation concerns me deeply, and I have contacted President Obama with a link to your statement, urging him to act on it. I pray that this situation can be resolved peacefully.
Peace depends not on what we are taught from the outside, but from what we know on the inside. Everyone is born with an innate sense to be at peace. We can return to that.
Only when a people feel safe, empowered, respected and sustainable will peace among those peoples become real.

'Do unto others as you would have them do to you'.
We learn this simple wisdom as children, yet somehow as we 'grow' we leave it behind. Peace!

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.
each journey begins with one foot in front of the other and an hand offered in peace.
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.
Thank you Hanar Shaat for the wonderful article you published here on October 18, 2010. You have the vision.
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.
