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.
Peace constitutes an inescapable imperative the world over and the Middle East is no exception. We need a world where people compete not in killing each other but in loving each other and in sharing.
Ochieng M. Khairalla
Overwhelmingly, the people of the Middle East want lives of peace and justice. The framework for resolution of differences is increasingly clear, and it is to be hoped that political leaders will take full advantage of this opportunity.
When we have justice for women in the Middle East, peace will be the collateral benefit.
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.
Peace can be achieved if the Palestinian and the Israelis agreed to live together as equal.All i want for my people n Gaza is to live with dignity and to be free of all the restrictions around them.
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.
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.
if we are all the children of G_D, then how could he love any of else greater or lesser? We are all the chosen of G_D and we are loved unconditionally and without bias. Peace is...Inevitable
It is insufficient simply to support 'peace'. We need to set out the choice: either two states (partition) or a single democratic state. There is no third way.
May the divine powers of mercy,forgiveness,love and compassion bring peace to the Middle East
It is a beautiful and powerful stand for peace and prosperity, there is hope knowing that men and women such as the elders with years of experience and wisdom under their belt creating a movement.
What unites us in being human is much greater than that which divides us. Let unity triumph in peace.
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
I would like to suggest that peace is not an end state, but the by-product of something else. What is that "something else?"
For there to be peace there is a need to recognise past pain. To heal the pain we need understanding. To succeed we need to know that all of our needs as fellow human beings are much the same.
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.

Peace a path, violence, a direction, peace is illusional, it's preferred over violence, which is delusional; peacing pays only much less than warring- no profit, pleasure in destruction or murder :)

An enemy is actually a friend waiting to be made. We found this to be so in South Africa. It will be no different in the Holy land.
Those who stand in the way of peace and empowerment of the residents of Gaza and East Jerusalem deserve to be exposed and embarrassed. We must stop sowing the seeds of future conflict now.
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!

Even if we have different nationality, religions we are all part of the world. We should care and love each other always.....
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.
I would like to commend Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu for stating his viewpoint which in fact is a viewpoint that has been long ignored by the international community.
I have was active and supported PEACE NOW since the begining in 1979 and Beleive that as things get worse - Solutions are more urgent

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 was honoured to participate in the lunch yesterday and inspired by the message of hope and encouragement you bring. May G-d bless you and all of us with success in the mission of peace-making.
Rabbi Yehiel Grenimann
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.
