Message of support

What is real in this world and what is not may just be a matter of perspective. However I believe it is important to be firmly grounded in this reality and to do no harm. We are not alone.

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.

The Elders’ visit casts a powerful moral clarity. Clearly, our destiny—Palestinians and Israelis—is to live together, as equals. Please call for boycotts, divestment, and sanctions now.

The Elders is the most important group I believe has ever been formed. It is a reminder that the world must listen to wisdom if humanity is to heal its wounds and embrace a positive future.

There is an historic opportunity for Peace. Palestinians and Israelis should seize it, for their own sake, and that of their children.

Our brothers and sisters in the Middle East have a choice to make. Live in peace or rest in peace. I believe they will follow the example of Isaac and Ishmael and forgive each other.

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.

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,

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.

In our time, peace should not be a radical concept. Leading hearts and minds to believe that peace is the most natural choice will bring about lasting change.

To tackle&bring about solutions for the greater good,we need youth councils that are mentored by the Elders to do their part in regions around the world.No one person can accomplish anything alone.

I wish Israeli and Palestinian leaders opened up their hearts for love and peace in this land which -although it seems completely impossible- should and could be the actual source of peace.
