I hope all the world would be in Peace. Without War, Birds Would Be Singing. The peace from two sides not from one side so we should come together in one point.
Ahed Abu Sharekh
I hosted the Elders dialogue today at Government house in Jerusalem.
The path to peace is there to grasp through women and children of the coming generations.
The choice is yours!
It has been said that until the children of the Middle East sleep soundly in their beds, neither will children around the world. Please join us in this historic opportunity for peace.
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.
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.
Mabel van Oranje
The time for terror is long past... we now need to support each other by building trust and understanding between all nations so that our children and grandchildren may grow in harmony for a peace
Peace is an activity, not a place or an end--it's an ongoing process of connection and conversation and exploration. And I can think of no better work to be engaged in. Thank you, each, so, so much.
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.
Great initiative, hope that you will succeed! I work on the West Bank as project leader in an Israeli/Palestinian cooperative and I know this is what lots of people want!
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
May the divine powers of mercy,forgiveness,love and compassion bring peace to the Middle East
Please consider the world our grandchildren will share, and put aside today's political and economic pressures. Our grandchildren must live in the world we leave them. Our problems are irrelevant.
Shalom. Salem. Peace. May we all take this opportunity to recognise the unity behind the schisms that have divided us for so long.
It is time to move forward. Israel must recognise the State of Palestine on the 1967 border, Jerusalem internationalized. Palestine will recognize Israel.

we are all attached atomically to the universe-
we are bonded biologically to all life-
we are connected chemically to this planet-
we should be astounded,awed, humbled and understand we are tenants
Praying, working, donating and always always hoping for peace in a region I love and respect. Please don't give up. I'm pulling for you all.

Like the wonderful movie "The Lemon Tree", we all want to live peacefully. Its just a matter of walking in your neighbor's shoes...and letting your neighbor walk in yours.

The cycle of violence can only be remedied by the wisdom to forgive.
M J F Daly
If you were the parent of all mankind, how would you teach your children respect and loyalty?
Peace is personal, first of all. When we have peace in our hearts and within our families we can do more to create a peaceful world.
The only way to eliminate your enemy is to make them friends.
South Africa will not be free until Palestine is free. I think this is a Nelson Mandela quote.
I know peace will come - and it will be brought about by mums and dads who are brave enough to create a new future for their children by letting go of the past. I applaud you and send my love.
Tolerance and respect are human virtues and peace is a human right. Thanks to the Elders and to my elders for their support and their values. Let us pass it to the younger generations.
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.
I am writing from Jerusalem, en route to Gaza. Our project Gaza 24/24 speaks directly to your concerns. It is my hope to collaborate.
You elders are showing us how to build a better world community. Please keep working as a force for compassionate listening and taking a stand for what's right. Thank you.

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.
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.
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.
