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 will only be experienced, when masses of people across the globe speak out, live it, breathe it, and by doing so, change the energetic field in the human consiousness

Because of greed of mankind,unless humanitarian people who are resourceful and the masses take bold action the Concept of Sustainable Development will not come to fruition.

Dear Collegues, 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

As an American Jew I opposed the right of the Apartheid regime in South Africa to exist, just as I oppose the right of the Apartheid regime in Israel to exist. Racism has no right to exist.

Pursuing peace with all men as admonished by the Holy Bible is a creed that all men should live by. People from all over the world are one regardless of race, education and economic independence.

South Africa will not be free until Palestine is free. I think this is a Nelson Mandela quote.

Peace making is too important to be left to politicians alone. It needs the active, sustained involvement of all sectors of society - civil society, business, young people, women's groups - supported by all international friends of peace and justice.

Once in a lifetime God sends somebody special to lead us out of darkness into the realms of love and peace. Thank you God, for giving us Mandela, who also taught how to love and forgive.

Having worked for peace personally since 1992, the majority of those years spent in the Holy Land, I have never stopped believing that peace is possible and will be a reality one day, when all want it

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.

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!

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.

To solve all global crisis, it isn't only for Israel but all UN member states must respect and live up the principles of each and every meaning stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Genuine peace should be the primary goal of all nations. Regarding Israel and the Palestinians, the goal should be the same as long as both have security and complete sovereignty.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I am praying for peace for ALL Palestinians and Israelis. It has been too long coming. All children, everywhere, deserve a peaceful future.

The only way we can ever reach some sort of peace is when each of us look at the person or persons in our own life that we dislike for whatever reason, and treat them with respect.

He forgave his opponents, which was remarkable. But even more striking is that he did not impose shame upon them. Instead he invited them to feel pride in the new world he created. He will be missed!

Sadly, the meetings in Europe this week aren't leading to a breakthrough to halt Israeli settlements in Palestine and make way for the peace process to recommence. http://bit.ly/o9Cre

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.

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.

Peace is possible. Israelis and Palestinians deserve it and can achieve it. Ordinary people can make a difference. Make your voice heard now.

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

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.

Real peace comes from living harmoniously with one another. The 'reality on the ground' won't go away so isn't it time to work towards a single state solution?

Our Elders you are real heroes of this world, Middle eastern people were living together in peace many centuries, and it is possible again keep going and we will support you!
