Forgiveness and Love are difficult when differences are long standing. We offer our support to anyone who can overcome their personal hurts and care for other human beings as themselves.
Jan & John
Thank you so much for the work you are doing. I almost didn't send a message but if ordinary people show their support rather than just think it your work might be strengthened.
I wish for you all the peace that can only be achieved by a powerful, grassroots commitment to love. I pray you take this chance to love and to be loved.
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
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 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.
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

The only way to consider a real future is through peace. Only when people relate to each other through respect and admiration will we know 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!
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.

We owe it to our grandchildren, to our children, to our parents, to our friends, neighbours and ourselves to act for peace. And the first step for peace is to communicate, have contact with the other.
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.
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 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.
SEE GOD in all whom you meet, Show Love and Peace to those you Greet, and Allow Goodness to be the Mission of your Feet, for the Journey of Life is Oh So Sweet.

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.
I support efforts to end the suffering in Israel and Palestine. I hope that you will be listened to.

Blessings and Aloha, thank you Elders for making a journey for World Peace. My prayer is for the children and the Earth to be cared for - everywhere. When we put our hearts in charge it will happen.
Borders are for administrative purposes only. Each granule of sand is the property entrusted to humanity. Humane Society across the border shall break the barrier.

Both sides, Israelis and Palestinians deserve to live in peace and recognize each other existence. Israelis to give back the 1967 occupied lands and Palestinians to acknowledge the state of Israel.
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!
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.
We will look back and say, "Remember when the middle east was fraught with violence and peace seemed impossible? Hard to imagine that now…"

each journey begins with one foot in front of the other,extend your hand in peace and someone will always shake it
The world must look to the youth of, not just Gaza, but everywhere to make a difference. We owe youth so much more than terrorism. They are our future.
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.
